about

Bochan Oakland, California

"Full Monday Moon captures the Cambodian-American experience, a conglomeration of varied cultural influences. The album isn’t purely one thing, and neither is contemporary Khmer identity—it’s a heady, explosive mix that creates something new, both loyal to its influences and different from them." ~Cambodian Alliance For the Arts ... more

Track Name: Believe
Don’t you cry, you’re gonna make it.
Don’t you cry, you’re gonna make it.
You’re gonna make it ...

He works all day and night.
Striving, striving in this new land to make a good life.
Two boys and a girl, and a his wife,
Struggling through the flatlands below the city lights.

Oh don’t you cry.
You’re gonna make it through.
You survived, you made it here alive.
Dry those eyes, you’re gonna make it.
Believe in you.
Believe in you.

When daddy gets home the kids are asleep.
Everyone feels alone.
Words spoken get lost in translation.
He feels the distance further and further between them.
He wants to go back, back to the motherland.
To when he was the man, he had a plan
Oh the good old days before the war,
When there was meaning and everything to live for.

Oh don’t you cry.
You’re gonna make it through.
You survived, you made it here alive.
Dry those eyes, you’re gonna make it.
Believe in you.
Believe in you.
Track Name: Belle
Dear Mr. President,

Where have you been these days?
The people are angry.
They wanna know are you gonna change these ways?

You’ve got cops shooting brothers, lots of crying mothers. Metal detectors adorning schools.
Textbooks written by fools.
You say the future generation is number one,
But you’ve lost the war before it’s even begun.
How much more?
How many more must we sacrifice for you to open up your eyes?

We say Bom Ba Ra Romp Bom Bom,
Bom Ba Ra Romp Bom Bom.
Our lips are closed like your front door
Cuz we’ve said it all before.
Bom Ba Ra Romp Bom Bom,
Bom Ba Ra Romp Bom Bom.
Our lips are closed like your front door
Cuz we’ve said it all before.

One day ... I pray, someday (someday)
Our daughters will be leaders,
Our sons will be fathers,
No fences between neighbors.
A world where one, where one can dream
Dream...

We say Bom Ba Ra Romp Bom Bom,
Bom Ba Ra Romp Bom Bom.
Our lips are closed like your front door
Cuz we’ve said it all before.
Bom Ba Ra Romp Bom Bom,
Bom Ba Ra Romp Bom Bom.
Our lips are closed like your front door
Cuz we’ve said it all before.

Dear Mr. President,
Where have you been these days?
The people are angry.
They wanna know are you gonna change these ways?
Track Name: Never
Gray skies they come and they go.
The wind, which way? We’ll never know.
Summer breeze in the night, the moon’s reflection by candlelight,
The moon’s reflection by candlelight.

Oh I can see, I can see until the end, you and me.
What never ends, never begins.
A river flowing knows it’s many bends.
Never ends, Never begins.

January snow,
Raindrops that glisten and glow.
When there’s darkness,
Remember
April showers brings May flowers.

Oh I can see, I can see until the end, you and me.
What never ends never begins.
A river flowing knows it’s many bends.
Never ends, never begins.

January snow,
Raindrops that glisten and glow.
When there’s darkness,
Remember
April showers brings May flowers.

Gray skies they come and they go.
The wind, which way? We’ll never know.
Summer breeze in the night, the moon’s reflection by candlelight.
The moon’s reflection by candlight.
April showers brings May flowers.
