Stars

The air was more than human
And the heat was more than hungry
And the cars were square and spitting diesel fumes

The boars were running wild
Because they're big and mean and sacred
And the children playing cricket with no shoes

That morning we woke up man
To a seven-hour drive
Well there we were in South Batong
Where women are men and men go wrong

And there were so many fewer questions
When stars were still just the holes to heaven, mmm
Man and there were so many fewer questions
When stars were still just the holes to heaven, mmm

The officials were quite friendly
Once we bribed them with our sweet talk
And we drowned them with our cigarettes and booze
Disembarking from the port
With no mistakes of any sort
Moving south the engine running smooth

The next morning we woke up man
With the sunrise to the right well
Moving back north to Port Blair
Where boats break and children stare

And there were so many fewer questions
When stars were still just the holes to heaven, mmm
Man and there were so many fewer questions
When stars were still just the holes to heaven

Estrelas

O ar era mais que humano
E o calor era mais que a fome
E os carros eram quadrados cuspindo fumaça de diesel

Os porcos-do-mato estavam correndo selvagemente
Porque eles são grandes, maus e sagrados
E as crianças jogando cricket sem sapatos

Naquela manhã nós acordamos, cara
Para uma viagem de 7 horas
Então nós estávamos em South Batong
Onde mulheres e homens erram

E havia tão menos perguntas
Quando estrelas eram apenas buracos no céu, mmm
Cara, e havia tão menos perguntas
Quando estrelas eram apenas buracos no céu, mmm

Os policiais eram bem amigáveis
Desde que nós os subornássemos com nossa doce conversa
E os afogássemos com cigarros e bebidas
Desembarcando do porto
Sem erros nenhum
Movendo pro sul a máquina suavemente

Na manhã seguinte nós acordamos,cara
Com o nascer do sol
Indo de volta ao norte ao Porto Blair
Onde os barcos quebram e crianças ficam olhando

E havia tão menos perguntas
Quando estrelas eram apenas buracos no céu, mmm
Cara, e havia tão menos perguntas
Quando estrelas eram apenas buracos no céu
