Jokerman


Standing on the waters casting your bread
While the eyes of the idol with the iron head are glowing.
Distant ships sailing into the mist,
You were born with a snake in both of your fists while a hurricane was blowing.
Freedom just around the corner for you
But with the truth so far off, what good will it do?

Jokerman dance to the nightingale tune,
Bird fly high by the light of the moon,
Ohhhhh, oh, oh,ohhhhh oh oh oh oh Jokerman.
So swiftly the sun sets in the sky,
You rise up and say goodbye to no one.
Fools rush in where angels fear to tread,
Both of their futures, so full of dread, you don't show one.
Shedding off one more layer of skin,
Keeping one step ahead of the persecutor within.
Jokerman dance to the nightingale tune,
Bird fly high by the light of the moon,
Oh, oh, oh, Jokerman.

You're a man of the mountains, you can walk on the clouds,
Manipulator of crowds, you're a dream twister.
You're going to Sodom and Gomorrah
But what do you care? Ain't nobody there would want to marry your sister.
Friend to the martyr, a friend to the woman of shame,
You look into the fiery furnace, see the rich man without any name.
Jokerman dance to the nightingale tune,
Bird fly high by the light of the moon,
Oh, oh, oh, Jokerman.

Well, the Book of Leviticus and Deuteronomy,
The law of the jungle and the sea are your only teachers.
In the smoke of the twilight on a milk-white steed,
Michelangelo indeed could've carved out your features.
Resting in the fields, far from the turbulent space,
Half asleep near the stars with a small dog licking your face.
Jokerman dance to the nightingale tune,
Bird fly high by the light of the moon,
Oh. oh. oh. Jokerman.

Well, the rifleman's stalking the sick and the lame,
Preacherman seeks the same, who'll get there first is uncertain.
Nightsticks and water cannons, tear gas, padlocks,
Molotov cocktails and rocks behind every curtain,
False-hearted judges dying in the webs that they spin,
Only a matter of time 'til night comes steppin' in.
Jokerman dance to the nightingale tune,
Bird fly high by the light of the moon,
Oh, oh, oh, Jokerman.

It's a shadowy world, skies are slippery gray,
A woman just gave birth to a prince today and dressed him in scarlet.
He'll put the priest in his pocket, put the blade to the heat,
Take the motherless children off the street
And place them at the feet of a harlot.
Oh, Jokerman, you know what he wants,
Oh, Jokerman, you don't show any response.
Jokerman dance to the nightingale tune,
Bird fly high by the light of the moon,
Oh, oh, oh, Jokerman.

HOY DESTACAMOS
IX Festival de Canción De Autor «Otoño en Navarrés»

por María Gracia Correa el 25/11/2019

Otoño tras otoño, Navarrés hace un paréntesis en su vida cotidiana para recordar a Joan Baptista Humet. Desde que falleció el cantautor, hace once años, cada final del mes de noviembre el pueblo en el que nació se colma de canciones y música en su memoria. Su recuerdo perdura por encima del tiempo, sus canciones permanecen en el alma de su gente. Vuelve el otoño a Navarrés de nuevo, con un festival que contará con las actuaciones de Sara Reus, Laura Granados, Fede Comín y Gabriela Castillo, y que finalizará con un tributo en el que una veintena de artistas pondrá voz a sus canciones.

Novedad discográfica

por Frank Carlos Nájera el 04/12/2019

El trovador cubano Carlos Varela acaba de lanzar El grito mudo, su primer disco en solitario en 10 años tras No es el fin (Grafitti Music Records 2009), un disco que se acerca a veces estilísticamente a Como los peces, y esencialmente a Monedas al aire, pero que encuentra su propio rumbo.
