Christopher Rodriguez Chicano Batman, my brothers, I want you guys to keep rocking and doing what you do. From the moment I heard your music, I was absolutely hooked and I have to say, you are certainly one of my favorite groups. I always have to go out and catch the boys when they come to Texas, so thanks for the amazing shows. Sorry it took so long for me to finally purchase some tracks to listen to for myself, it's tough out here as a college student! Much love, keep doing what you do best, music. Peace, brothers. Favorite track: La Manzanita.

Blanca Gomez I fell in love with Chicano Batman with this song, and now I am an ultra fan of Chicano Batman, so glad for the new album,specialty because the video Friendship was filmed on the street I live on. Favorite track: A Hundred Dead and Loving Souls.

Track Name: Itotiani
mira oye siente
itotiani mover
su corazón palpita fuerte
al sentir su alma renacer

ella tiene aire a teotihuacán
su piel tiene color de mazapan

su cuerpo va dando vuelta al ritmo del tambor
su alma va comunicando amor
y mira oye siente
itotiani volar

sus alas siempre van a parpadiar
con ojos fijos hacia el cielo
con pulmones abiertos al mar
ella es vientre de creación

itotiani tu me mueves, mueveme a mi...
itotiani
Track Name: La Samoana
y el otro día la vi
en el apartamento
el otro día la vi
me puse menso
planchaba su ropa con su alma caliente
cocinaba la sopa con su alma caliente

su piel era obscura
esencia de ricura
su pelo tan largo
el llegaba al trasero
y me envenenaba con una sola mirada
suspiraba tan profundo
que me quede sin aire

y el otro día le hable
la invite a salir
y no la penso mucho y me dijo que si

y que bonito se sentía mi corazón
que bonito se sentía mi corazón con razón
Samoana preciosa calentando mi corazón
Samoana preciosa cantaba cantando su son

libre como el mar
cuando brillamos en la pista
gozando de la noche
moviendonos la disco
moviendo al compás
de su corazón palpitando
y sudor va cayendo
de su labios
quiere ser...
Track Name: A Hundred Dead and Loving Souls
I am the sand stuck under miles of rock
watching the dry air sweep away my thoughts
as we travel protected by shards of glass
driving through the history of a million memories

In a sea of a hundred dead and loving souls
In a sea of a hundred dead and loving souls
In a sea of a hundred dead and loving souls
Climbing a thousand unclimbed trees
I don't know I want to know how it would feel
to be on top of one of these!

I am the root
quickly ascending
up through the surrounding dirt
quickly devoured by a hungry sun
quickly devoured by a hungry son
who is my father
and we are alike
we look alike we talk alike
we are alike
we are alike
we are alike we look alike
we talk alike

Thats why Im hungry
like the bellowing sky
this is no lie
as sure as light
entering eye
want to stay high
everything's cool too cool so cool
and I remember that everything falls

So I take a look around me now, as I speak
and I imagine a disinterested crowd
talking aloud
and I think of what I want most
and the crowd disappears
and a fixated gaze envelopes my wondering mind
and then she recruits and takes me to this place
I've been there before and that's where I saw her face

In a sea of a hundred dead and loving souls
In a sea of a hundred dead and loving souls
In a sea of a hundred dead and loving souls
Climbing a thousand unclimbed trees
I don't know I want to know how it would feel
to be on top of one of these!
Track Name: It's A Balloon
It's a balloon far away that I can see far away
like the balloon flying away that is usually seen
and it has an odd shape in the distance
that doesn't diminish it stays in my sight
and doesn't finish

then a slight swirl
takes over my mind
my irises return
after being miles away!

then I find that there's no balloon
like the balloon usually seen
but some type of insect
like the insect
usually hanging right in front of me

and I walk towards it and I take another step
now I find myself right below, right below, it...
now here I am!
below the spider
hanging from its thread
hanging from the tree

No it's not a balloon far away that I can see far way.
No it's not a balloon far away.
No it's not a balloon far away.
No it's not a balloon.
Track Name: La Manzanita
Cuando yo te vi pasando
en la calle con tu sombrero
Buscabas a quién te diera
un poquito de dinero

Por mi coche tu pasaste
tocaste la ventanita
Allí es donde yo saque
la dulcita manzanita

La dulcita manzanita
Cuidado con la semillita...

Rojita y muy deliciosa
le pase la manzanita
Me dijo que no no no
que no podía con su boquita
Dio dos pasos p'delante
abrio y luego de repente
Yo no lo pude creer
no tenía ni un solo diente
Track Name: Soniatl
Soniatl sigue soñando sueños alegres
porque amarillo es tu color
y van corriendo ligartijas
volando hacia ella por su sangre caliente
tu podras curar nuestro dolor

y abres los ojos despiertas y el sol te sonrie
pero el mundo esta pesado y te sientes poco triste
y aveces piensas que en este mundo no la haces
pero te digo amiga mia para liberar al mundo tu nacistes

y tu mente corre por el mundo y quieres viajar
piensas en Cuba, Venezuela, y en revolucionar
creando consciencia en niños con literatura
sentado en el arbol le canto a mi amiga la pura
