lyrics

Matapalo Matamusa - Jose Conde

matapalo matamusa
larga te de aqui
matapalo matamusa
que lo que yo quiero es vivir

con postura jorobada
y un afan de amargada
nace el matapalo
pa fastidiar

silenciosamente
asi como serpiente
se te enrolla y empieza
afixiar

matapalo matamusa
larga te de aqui
matapalo matamusa
que lo que yo quiero es vivir

nutriendo se
de tu vitalidad
sacando te la esencia
de tu creatividad
va creciendo y creciendo
y poniendo se mas fuerte
y dejando te debil
e impotente

matapalo matamusa
larga te de aqui
matapalo matamusa
que lo que yo quiero es vivir

cuando menos esperabas
ya es muy tarde
y es muy dificil
de respirar

y no puedes correr
y no puedes gritar
asi como pesadilla
donde no puedes ni hablar

corta lo con tu fe
y saca le las raices
desde adentro de ti
limpia te mi hermano

Matapalo
Matamusa Matamusa
Matapalo Matamusa




Matapalo Translation
Matapalo Matamusa

Note – the matapalo literally is a strangler fig tree found in Costa Rica and other parts of the Americas. Since I have nothing against the tree, and because there is no literal translation that does not evoke the tree ,and I am using it as a metaphor for a person or situation of “Bad negative energy” which “strangles and kills” its host, I will use “matapalo” in the translation below. Another meaning of Mata-palo is – “killstick” or “killdick”.

Strangler fig Killmuse
Matapalo, Killmuse
Get out of here
Matapalo, Killmuse
What I want to do is live

With a twisted posture
And an aura of depression
The Matapalo is born
To bother you

Silently
Like a serpent
It wraps itself around you
And slowly begins to aphixiate

Matapalo, Killmuse
Get out of here
Matapalo, Killmuse
What I want to do is live

Gaining nutrients
Thru your vitality
Taking out the essence
Of your creativity
It grows and grows
And becomes stronger
leaving you weak
And impotent

Matapalo, Killmuse
Get out of here
Matapalo, Killmuse
What I want to do is live

When you least expect it
It is too late
It is too difficult
To breathe
And you cant run
You cant scream
Like a bad dream
Where you cant even speak

Cut it with your faith
And take out its roots
Which are inside of you
Get rid of the bad


Matapalo, Killjoy, Matapalo, Killjoy
