Emis Killa - Cult (English translation)

English translation

Cult

When I was fifteen i went to the sea
and I got out for a girl
her ex looked at me badly
and came to blows like Rocky in the square.
A passerby 'filmed',
with his words (he scolded), not webcam,
and nobody knows how much i've been knocked around but me,
but all of this was a cult.
It wasn't a game to communicate
before Nokia was for a supertrend,
I used to go to the town center to call
from a phone box like Superman.
For me, Milan was like New York,
on the orange seats of a tram
i'm coming back there, I regret and think
all of this was a cult.
 
All used to be like that, from monday to friday,
same people, nothing in the pockets
but it was better than a film.
Mike Tyson, Lauda and James Hunt,
Stallone, Hulk Hogan, Van Damme,
I look at me now, I regret and think
all of this was a cult.
 
Go dancing was fashionable
in Aquafan or Cocoricò,
winged music in all the pubs,
few words like Robocop,
the fifty top and nose-ups,
lunatic guys like Peter Pan...
I often think, now i realize
all of this was a cult.
Such horror movies,
Carlito and the dramatic end,
DiCaprio dead in the Atlantic,
Tony Montana with the Kalashnikov,
billions spents on punching bags,
there are the tents in the city
and I may have not received what i was looking for,
but all the rest was a cult.
 
All used to be like that, from monday to friday,
same people, nothing in the pockets
but it was better than a film.
Lupin, MacGyver, Batman,
Street Fighter, Tekken, Pac-Man,
I look at me now, I regret and think
all of this was a cult.
 
All of this was a cult
All of this was a cult
All of this was a cult
All of this was a cult,
cult, cult, cult, cult, cult, cult
 
It was better unknown and without paparazzi
when i used to get around by scooter in Milan,
I've ever prefered taxi to supercars,
I can't figure De Niro as the driver for Uber,
modern Supermans stay on the computer
zero Kryptonite, today's real life is killin'em!
Rap competition's no more moderate,
there's always one ready to kick your ass like Tiger-Man.
If I think of how the world went around twenty years ago,
when i had to go to the bar to play video games...
Solitude even accompanies Superstars,
It ends with you talking with your car like in Supercar,
I used to visit Blockbuster for the top films:
Ghostbusters, The Shark, Jurassic Park,
it feeled like paradise, that carnival,
now closed, out of time,
no more cult.
 
All used to be like that, from monday to friday,
same people, nothing in the pockets
but it was better than a film.
The Rap of Biggie and Tupac,
Space Jam and Michael Jordan,
I look at me now, I regret and think
all of this was a cult.
