Calma Calma (WATERMARK)

I met a man who told me how to measure
All the precious treasure we enjoy
Each and every day
Each and every day
He told me "Hey, young fellow with the smart sombrero
Running through the yellow, don't you ever forget
Life's a holiday
Celebrate It"

And on the other side there's a fine magician
Juggling, shuffling, yearning recognition
Will it ever come?
Will it ever come?
Sometimes you throw just once and get the double sixes
And other times you reach the end of the line (and)
Throw it all away
Throw it all away

Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
Calma, calma
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
Calma, calma
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
Calma, calma
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
Calma, calma

No matter how important or demanding
All of these things are anchors on our ankles
What've we become?
What've we become?
How many times I see me pass right by me
Coming and going but where is it at?
Come and have a look
Come and have a look

Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
Calma, calma
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
Calma, calma
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
Calma, calma
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
Calma, calma

And every time i feel condescending
Full of pride and arrogance, oh so trendy
I shut my mouth and bite my tongue
Instead I power up and grab a microphone
I got my record player spinning Joy Devision
Turn my back to my big mother fucking television
It shakes me up and sets me straight
Crocodile Dundee is no longer my mate

Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
Calma, calma
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
Calma, calma
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
Calma, calma
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
Calma, calma
