So take me up
We're going on, going on

So take me up
We're going on, going on

So take me up
We're going on, going on

So take me up
We're going on, going on

(Yayayaya)
(Yayayaya)

We're going on without you

Well I met some boy while crossing the border, cross the border,
Rank and thirsty and blind, you must be out of order, out of order 'cos

Well I met some boy while crossing the border, cross the border,
Rank and thirsty and blind, you must be out of order, tell 'I'm again 'gain 'gain 'gain...

(Yayayaya)
(Yayayaya)

We're going on without you

Rank and thirsty and blind, you must be out of order, tell 'I'm again 'gain 'gain 'gain...

(Yayayaya)
(Yayayaya)

We're going on without you

Well I met some boy while crossing the border, cross the border,
Rank and thirsty and blind, you must be out of order, out of order 'cos

Well I met some boy while crossing the border, cross the border,
Rank and thirsty and blind, you must be out of order, tell 'I'm again 'gain 'gain 'gain

    Seriously guys, as the post below me states, it's just a jamaican accent - not a tribal chant... I googled the term 'alta vada tras' and i don't think it exists :s also if anyone knows what a 'quasimana' is..? I'm ready to be enlightened!

    Actually, they samples a jamaican reggae singer called cocoa tea and used words from the song 'we do the killing'. The lyrics go something like: "when i met some boy while crossin the border, cross the border... Rank and thirst and blind, he must be out of order, out of order cos... Tell him again-gain". All in a jamaican accent, hence it sounds like a different language. Btw, pendulum also samples him in their first album in 'fasten your seatbelts', but i'll leave you guys to it.

    Whoaaa i always do this. I totally thought the lyrics said something different. "why not cross the river, rain can thirsty and dried, we must be out of water. " totally changes the meaning.

    I think men's voice in the song is on a different language. Something tribal maybe.
    I mean, it sounds like "while a met sam guaia cross da rivana" not "some boy" , and in the end not "tell im again gain" but "tele ma gem gem".
    Thats from what i can hear at least
