MOSCAS Y ARAÑAS By LOS NEGATIVOS

Another track from the LP "Piknik Caleidoscópico" (1986) by Los Negativos. This one has relatively easy lyrics. Nice retro video too! *
MOSCAS Y ARAÑAS

Ven esta noche, ven junto a mi.
Crees que puedo dañarte
crees que te voy a fallar
ven junto a mi.

Es muy tarde ya,
¿que vas a hacer;
cuanto tiempo más te ocultarás?

Ven esta noche, ven junto a mí.
¿Cuantas cosas vas a rechazar
antes de reconocer la verdad?

Moscas y arañas... caíste en mi red!
FLIES AND SPIDERS 

Come tonight – come with me
You think that I can hurt you,
You think I’m going to let you down
Come with me

It’s very late now
What are you are going to do
How much longer will you hide? 

Come tonight – come with me
How many things are you going to reject
Before recognizing the truth?

Flies and spiders… you fell into my net!

NO SOY YO (LA PSICOASTENIA) By LOS NEGATIVOS

The LP cover looks like 1966, but it’s actually from 1986 (“Piknik Caleidoscópico”).

Part of the mid-eighties mod-revival in Spain, Los Negativos rock harder than most of their rivals

NO SOY YO (LA PSICOASTENIA)
*
Por la noche en el hospital
cuando apagan la luz
quisiera levantarme y pasear.
Y todos estos tubos
no me van a dejar
y ese maldito cartel
es todo cuanto puedo ver.
Empieza el día con energía
comiendo cereales como yo.
*
Ya vuelve a estar ahí,
rondando en la oscuridad.
Ya vuelve a estar ahí,
es la psicoastenia y no soy yo.
*
No puedo apartar la vista del televisor,
y aunque ese tipo mida
sólo un par de pies,
amargarme la noche es su obsesión.
No sé si habla o masca chicle,
vi su cara en el cine.
Hace rato que estoy pensando
en la clase de mujer que debe tener.
I’M NOT ME (MENTAL BREAKDOWN)
*
At night in the hospital
when they turn out the light
I would like to get up and to take a walk.
And all these tubes
aren’t going to let me
and that damn poster
is all I can see.
Start the day with energy
eating cereals like me.
*
It’s back there again
hovering in the dark.
It’s back there again
It’s a mental breakdown and I’m not me
*
I can’t look away from the tv set
Even though that type measures
only a couple of feet
The night makes me bitter with it’s obsession
I don’t’ know if he speaks or chews gum
I saw his face in the cinema
For a while I’ve been thinking about
The kind of woman that he must have.

GRAMMAR:
Psicoastenia is a made up word, but astenia means fatigue (illness) and
neurastenia means nervous breakdown
(Los Salvajes recorded a version of "19th Nervous Breakdown" translated as
"La Neurastenia" in the 60s).
I guess the meaning here is something like mental breakdown.
