AUDIO: "You better mean what you say; Why don't you say what you mean"

The JIDF is immersed in news and information, all day, nearly every day. Some of it is stressful. Music which has absolutely nothing to do with the project is actually one of the few things that helps keep it alive somehow. Therefore, we will share tunes from time to time. The following is called "Transliterator" by DeVotchka...a Denver-based four piece multi-instrumental and vocal ensemble that fuses Romani, Greek, Slavic, Bolero, Mariachi music with American punk and folk roots:


Lady future's arms are lily white
They stretch before you come inside
there is room enough
She is generous
come on, come up
while we're still young
You want to love your life from a prison?
Of all this uninvited altruism
The homemade weapons you are fashioning
Are hellbent on doing us both in

You better mean what you say
Why don't you say what you mean
I never get anywhere
I get the space in between
beautifully mutilated
insanely antiquated
I will admit i almost always underestimate it

Let's begin at the beginning
Let us revisit the past
Like when the horselights start dimming
In silver screen photograph
It makes a beautiful sound
when noody else is around
It has a wonderful way
of eating up entire days
We'll go swimming in libations
forgive unexplained lacerations
These otherworldly manifestations
we can all live in the breath you are wasting

You better mean what you say
Why don't you say what you mean
I never get anywhere
I get the space in between here
We go over again beautifully mutilated
Insanely antiquated let's wash our hands of everything
I will admit I almost always underestimate it
You don't owe them anything
