Banhart, Devendra - Foolin' Lyrics




Foolin' on the human population
I know my mind's on the front line
But when I'm lovin' on the human population
Thank God my heart's playin' its part

One day, one day at a time
One day, one day at a time

Love is the birth of a nation
Born from the good womb of humankind
All these stories of creation
Came from the same flame of the most high

One song, one song at a time
One song, one song at a time

Fearing oh I'm sure gettin' better
With every morn a new fear is born
But when I'm trusting trusting trusting
Knowing that we're in it together
Free to face unknown, free to overcome

One day, one day at a time
One day, one day at a time

  2. M C

    What do you guys think Devendra asked for when he was trying to explain what he wanted the music video to be of

  3. DIEGO* DIDIAN*

    Histories of creation*

  4. Norwalk Avenger

    When he first gets out of the car, I thought it was Derek Zoolander!

  5. Jesus E Amaya Leon

    It feels like a Coke commercial

  6. Romeo Duque

    i am wearing the exact same turtle neck as that black guy who opens the door at 0:32

  7. Радикал и Фридрих

  17. Leumas

    Hubiera disfrutado esta cancion toda mi vida de no haber sido pq vi el video de casualidad ...wtf con esa mierda homsexual? xD se la re mamo

  18. Nicolas Martin Pedretti

    hoy hice algo que nunca había hecho en mi vida: comí flan, fui al súper y me dije “hoy que estoy bien, tengo que hacer algo distinto” y compré doce potes de dos flanes cada uno, cuando salí del supermercado me encontré con un ex compañero de la secundaria,
    que estaba comiendo de un tacho de basura, se me acercó para saludarme
    y salí corriendo, me corrió quince cuadras, pero por suerte tengo buen estado físico y lo perdí y me acordé de esta canción maravillosa .

  19. Lie Bing

    well...

  20. lefannie

    Sometimes I think that without his beard he looks just like Murdoc from Gorillaz.

  21. Moant .t

    I love the song but not really the video clip

  32. JUANELO CROWN

    Dónde se consiguen esclavos como éste??
    Devendra;
    Es majestuoso tu masoquismo hecho música.

  33. Blashtifin

    There are so many dumb people in the comments of this video. It's not about religion or slavery or anything, just a sadomasochistic relationship. The only shocking part is the finger removal

  34. Isabella Preston

    I am histerically laughing. One simply cannot love Devendra.

  35. Banana Trish

    Is he supposed to be Jesus Christ in this video or is it just sadomasochism?

  36. Simón Gabay

    Relationship Goals!

  37. Ri Ma

    this is my relationship with the person I love. I'm happy to feel pain as long as they give me attention

  42. Jon Feld

    Well that was different and pretty twisted.

  43. Lindey Coombs

    Wow, this artist is really towing the elite agenda in is videos. Every video heavily laced in occultism. Are there any organic artists anymore. They are all artificially created and groomed. It's like the Monsanto of the entertainment industry. No more gmo music please.

  44. Carl Creighton

    What is this?

  45. Lone Wolf

    big pile of steaming excrement! Truly horrible...he deserves the whipping! lol

  46. Jesus Hernandez

    😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍

  47. Brandon Walsh

    This shit is fucking fire, Devendra is a mastermind at making wonderful music, thank you so much for your contribution to this genre of music.

  48. Robin W.

  52. Daerni

    blueraspberryparis

    Duris est moins sexy en toute objectivité.

  53. Tony Carabello

  56. Futures

    Foolin' on the human population

    I know my mind's on the front line

    But when I'm lovin' on the human population

    Thank God my heart's playin' its part



    One day, one day at a time

    One day, one day at a time



    Love is the birth of a nation

    Born from the good womb of humankind

    And all these stories of creation

    Came from the same flame of the most high



    One song, one song at a time


    One song, one song at a time



    Fearing, oh, I'm sure gettin' better

    With every morn a new fear is born

    But when I'm trusting, trusting, trusting

    And knowing that we're in it together

    Free to face unknown, free to overcome



    One day, one day at a time

    One day, one day at a time

    Moon Dancer

    Futures Thank you for posting the lyrics.... but I can't name one nation born from the good womb of humankind. Haven't they ALL been born in war and suffering and oppression?

  57. no-go mado

    This song always reminds me I don't have a doorbell... because I hop up to check who's there and then I'm like... wait a minute... haha

    Michael Hand

    I'd check to make sure Devendra wasn't there anyways

  58. kaydee koester

    lets forget the video for a second, this song is a beautiful masterpiece

  59. Daniel ramirez

    rocksteady

  60. Luisa M. Rondón Figueroa

    Yo salgo en este video.

    andres galvan

    en que parte?

  61. André Costa

    Hahahahahah

  62. Michael Hand

    I always thought the song was about coming at life with faith and letting it whip you until you can't feel it but another part of me just wants to say Devendra's kinky af

    Yessy Estrada

    that makes him sexier, knowing he has a kinky side, sexy as fuck

    Michael Hand

    Yessy Estrada Devendra should start his own country

    Moon Dancer

    Michael Hand And what? Take all the weirdos there? hahaha

    4wheels8bearings

    This song is about addiction. One day at a time is how every recovering addict lives, by not using the substance or engaging in habits one day at a time. The lyrics echoe the realisations of the12 step programme. The guy whipping him is the addiction itself, beats him up, tortures him, yet he still returns for self-flagellation and can't leave behind. The programme only works if one "trusts we're in it together" and removes "his own mind from the front line" (the self) and is of service to others (to a Higher Power)

  63. Clancy Conlin

    Alright

  64. Miguel Torrealba

    ramsay bolton cuando dejo winterfell se volvio cantante hahahahah

  65. aryacademica

    devendra eres demente pero como estas de rico!!!provoca comente completico!!

  66. Luis Rafael Siguenza

    Hijos de jodoroswky no cabe duda esta bien para que las masas cambien

  67. RWS402

    Wow, this video has made me realize my true feelings. I now know what I need in my life. Thank you so much Devendra, I love your art, I love you.

    Kalie D

    Please tell me what you realized you need in your life?

    RWS402

    Well, Kalie Decker, it has firstly, made me realize that I need a man that drive that whip when I've been a bad boy.
    And trust me, I've been a bad boy. I've done things that would make priests blush.
    I need punishment, corporal and psychological.
    Secondly, I need a man that can hold me tenderly after delivering that physical /emotional punishment.
    A "bae" needs to feel love too, fam. Dead Ass. On Fleek. Savage.
    A big man that can spoon me and make me feel safe.
    Like he is an ocean wrapping around me, but not a big wet ocean with fish, or even a Frank Ocean, but an ocean of protection and peace.
    Also BBC.
