Bam*Bam
Che Sudaka Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Bam bam, bam bam yeah, bam bam. Babylon, babylon, babylon, babyl(on)me (4)
A la raza humana
La quieren exterminar
Porque quieren
Que todas las cabezas piensen igual
Somos un campo donde sembrar
Donde crece todo lo que vos cosechas
Saltando las vallas para continuar
Asi la respuesta poder encontrar
Estilo de la calle que te va a aclarar
Sobre lo que pasa en la vida real

Bam bam, bam bam yeah, bam bam. Babylon, babylon, babylon, babyl(on)me (4)
Sigo pa'alante y siempre pa'arriba
No se ve lo mismo de vuelta
Lo que se ve de ida
Siempre como un roble
Te digo hay que estar
Para las injusticias
De este mundo soportar
A la hora de actuar
Y el miedo es el arma
Con la que te manejan
Tengo la palabra
Que te va a dar el k.o.
Tengo la palabra
Que te va a dar el k.o.

Bam bam, bam bam yeah, bam bam. Babylon, babylon, babylon, babyl(on)me (4)




Bam bam, bam bam yeah, bam bam. Babylon, babylon, babylon, babyl(on)me (4)
Tombele, tombele, tombele, tombele, tom pow pow

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Che Sudaka's song "Bam*Bam" are a powerful commentary on the struggle for justice and freedom in the face of oppressive systems. The song begins with the repeated phrase "Babylon, babylon, babylon, babyl(one)", which is a reference to the Biblical story of Babylon and the metaphorical use of the city as a symbol of oppressive power in Rastafarian culture. The repeated use of the phrase underscores the idea that the systems of oppression are pervasive and all-encompassing.


The next line, "A la raza humana, la quieren exterminar" (They want to exterminate the human race), is a stark acknowledgement of the real danger posed by oppressive systems that seek to maintain power by suppressing dissent and diversity of thought. The following lines address the importance of individuality and the need to resist the pressure to conform: "Porque quieren que todas las cabezas piensen igual / Somos un campo donde sembrar / Donde crece todo lo que vos cosechas" (Because they want all heads to think the same / We are a field to plant / Where everything you sow grows).


The song then shifts to a more personal perspective, as the singer describes the challenges of navigating a world where injustice and fear are ever-present: "A la hora de actuar / Y el miedo es el arma / Con la que te manejan" (At the moment of action / And fear is the weapon / With which they control you). Despite these challenges, the singer is determined to live with courage and resistance: "Sigo pa'alante y siempre pa'arriba / Tengo la palabra / Que te va a dar el k.o." (I keep moving forward and always upwards / I have the word / That will give you the knock-out).


Overall, the lyrics of "Bam*Bam" are a powerful statement of resistance against systems of oppression, and a call to action for individuals to stand up for justice and freedom.
