Lyrics :

In the back of my machine,
When I look upon the Earth…
I feel afraid, lost at sea
And the stars don’t look so friendly.
Be alone in the space
Is not as cool as in the movies.

What are you gonna do ?

I’ll play the bongo, bongo, bongo Tido
Hit the bongo, bongo, bongo, Tido

To Altaïr, iaeyehe!

Our Generation kids were fucking insane,
It’s like cities, brands, TV, fashion all look the same.
While the Earth collapsed we were stuck on the screens,
Rotted brains my friend no longer can dream.

What are you gonna do ?

I’ll play the bongo, bongo, bongo Tido
Hit the bongo, bongo, bongo, Tido

To Altaïr, iaeyehe!
