"In the Meantime in Pernambuco" as written by Pedro Erazo-segovia, Oliver Francis Charles, Eugene Hutz, Oren Kaplan, Yuri Lemeshev, Sergey Ryabstev and Thomas Gobena....
Sometime when you have to take the hardest way
That don't mean that your star is leading you astray
Forget fashion symposium, you'll get panoramic
All I gotta say, my friend, stay aerodynamic
All I gotta say, my friend, stay aerodynamic

Oh, my spirit guides, lurking in the window
Never did I fit the frame invented by the gringo
Oh, my spirit guides, store up on provisions
Oh, expect nothing more or less but critical condition
Oh, expect nothing more or less but critical condition

'Cause in the meantime in Pernambuco
Cachaça [Incomprehensible]
Yeah, Cachaça a-clandestina
Yeah, Cachaça da cigana
Party

Ta, ta-da, ta-ta-da, ta-da
Ta, ta-da, ta-ta-da
Russo Frevo
Ta, ta-da, ta-ta-da, ta-da
Cachaça da cigana

Once we're there, the locals ask, "Amigo, who sent you?"
Paranoia, violence is always on the menu
But once the hospitality will dissolve the fear
Nothing but good kind of trouble there is left to stir
Nothing but good kind of trouble there is left to stir

Oh, my spirit guides, lurking in the window
Never did I fit the frame invented by the gringo
Oh, my spirit guides, store up on provisions
Oh, expect nothing more or less but critical condition
Oh, expect nothing more or less but critical condition

'Cause in the meantime in Pernambuco
Cachaça [Incomprehensible]
Yeah, Cachaça a-clandestina
Yeah, Cachaça da cigana

Ta, ta-da, ta-ta-da, ta-da
Ta, ta-da, ta-ta-da
Russo Frevo
Ta, ta-da, ta-ta-da, ta-da
Ta, ta-da, ta-ta-da

Frevo, Frevo, Frevo, Frevo
Frevo, Frevo, Frevo, Frevo
Russo Frevo

Ta, ta-da, ta-ta-da, ta-da
Ta, ta-da, ta-ta-da
Russo Frevo
Ta, ta-da, ta-ta-da, ta-da
Ta, ta-da, ta-ta-da

Ta, ta-da, ta-ta-da, ta-da
Ta, ta-da, ta-ta-da
Ta, ta-da, ta-ta-da, ta-da

Cachaça da cigana

    General CommentObviously written at the time Eugene spent in Pernambuco, Brazil. Has some parts in portuguese:

    "Never did I fit the frame invented by the gringo" - gringo is a slang for foreigner in Brazil too, specially for USA/Europe foreigners.

    "Cachaça a-clandestina" Illegal Cachaça (cachaça is a very strong alcoholic drink, made from sugar cane)

    "Yeah, Cachaça da cigana" Yeah, Gypsy's cachaça!

    "Russo Frevo!" Russian Frevo - Frevo is a folk dance in Pernambuco, Brazil. Is very curious, it is danced with a multicolored umbrella. It is very similar to the drums we hear in this part.

    "Amigo, who sent you?" amigo = friend

    Not much to say about the song's meaning, it's Eugene experience with Pernambuco's scenario and music.
