Gogol Bordello - When Universes Collide Lyrics




Why didn't you come when I beat my drum
And scream off my head out into the night
Scared of the slums, afraid of the guns
Don't wanna see the hoodlums fight

Hey hey hey, na na na na
Don't wanna see the hoodlums fight
Hey hey hey, na na na na
Don't wanna see the hoodlums fight

I was gonna come when I heard your drum
And you screamed your head off into the night
I grew up around different part of town
But even the universes collide

Hey hey hey, na na na na
Even the universes collide
Hey hey hey, na na na na
Even the universes collide

There was no letter, no family matter
And by the castas we don't divide
It's just father told me tonight authorities
Preparing ethno-cleansing ride

Hey hey hey, na na na na
Preparing ethno-cleansing ride
Hey hey hey, na na na na
Preparing ethno-cleansing ride

Two helicopters with machine guns
Over the slums proudly will glide
So when the universes collide
Son, don't get caught on the wrong side!

Hey hey hey, na na na na
When the universes collide
Hey hey hey, na na na na
Son, don't get caught on the wrong side

Hey hey hey, na na na na
When the universes collide
Hey hey hey, na na na na
Son, don't get caught on the wrong side

Hey hey hey, na na na na
When the universes collide
Hey hey hey, na na na na
Son, don't get caught on the wrong side

Why didn't you come when I beat my drum
And screamed off my head out into the rain
Your mother told you, our father stopped you
Out of the hospitals you are afraid

Hey hey hey, na na na na
When universe will collide
Hey hey hey, na na na na
Don't get caught on the wrong side

Hey hey hey, na na na na
When universe will collide
Hey hey hey, na na na na
Son, don't get caught on the wrong side

  23. Colette Bembenek

    This guy never ceases to amaze me w/his arrangements and lyrics. Dynamic.

  24. Stephanie Thomas

    Then there's a song "When Universes Collide," which is essentially a romantic song but the romance gets caught in a class struggle and it's very intense because the class struggle in Brazil is very intense ― it's one of the big shortcomings in the country. -Eugene Hutz (quote from)

  25. Tom

    Great song!

  26. UsernamerAlreadyTakn

    Ted Radio radio hour brought me here

    Thomas Truant

    jon patch i gave my girl start wearing purple she gave me heartache

  31. Panthera

    I expected that the comment section would be full of trolling racist pricks. I have never been so glad that I was wrong.

    Allen Gavel

    Panthera relieving isn't it my friend?

    Archanarchist

    racists are inherently cowards they skulk around edges at best, only dangerous in numbers or if armed with a ranged weapon/vehicle :P

    Eric Kukuk

    Nah. Screw that, man. This band rocks.

  32. Magdena Antova

    So amazing!

  33. BirthOfSerpents

    This reminds me of the crisis in the middle east, particularly in palestine.

    "Dont want to see the hoodlums fight" referring to the stupid holy war between the jews and arabs

    "I grew up around different part of town But even the universes collide" referring to someone growing up in a jewish area and another in the slums of palestine and the eventual clash between the two

    "Preparing ethno-cleansing rite" this reminds me of when Israel bombed hospitals and schools and dropped white phosphorus on Gaza.

    "Two helicopters with machine guns Over the slums, proudly will glide" Same as above, People in the middle east gladly kill people and are proud of the fact, claiming self defense and preservation of culture.

    Imri Rivas

    You completely missed the point of the comment.

    Nonich War

    BirthOfSerpents yes i guess you can connect it to that i thought it meant to be for the slavic people Because they are often referred to as hoodlons and the rest yeaaa

    Danielle

    BirthOfSerpents ❤️

    Sean Bannon

    Zionist murderers

    Bill Johnson

    Calling the genocide of the Palestinian people a holy war is like calling the Holocaust a holy war..

  43. Colette Bembenek

    Best version of this song since Hector was a pup !

  44. Colette Bembenek

    Tak GreyAlien502 ... I realize that. Eugene Hutz and his crew.
    He picked "Gogol" as it's some famous Russian writer like
    Dostekevsy. And "Bordello"....well....guess that's a cathouse. LOL
    Thanx for the info though. I agree all his arrangements, lyrics,
    and band backup make one want to dance and THINK and live.

  45. GreyAlien502

    gogo bordello is the band name
    just though you might want to know:)

    incredible song anyways

  46. ljleonheart

    went to their concert last night. they played this song, probably the most intimate moment of the night. and it was fucking genius.
    God i love this band

  47. MagicDragonPuff7

    Love the lyrics. And the gypsiness. And his voice.

  48. Colette Bembenek

    Jeez-us.....what's not to like about Gogol Bordello? Can't say enough about how super
    he and his band are. Tough and can't be ignored..... like with a steel pulse.
