“Maling Akala” – Eraserheads

“Maling Akala” / “Wrong Assumptions”

May mga kumakalat na balita / There’s news spreading around
Na ang misis ni kuwan ay madaling makuha / That someone’s wife is easy to get
Bago maniwala magisip-isip ka muna / Before believing, make sure to think first
Marami ang namamatay sa maling akala / Many die from wrong assumptions

Nung ako’y musmos pa lamang ay takot sa multo / When I was young I was scared of ghosts
Nung ako’y naging binata, sa erpat ng syota ko / When I became a teenager, [I was scared of] my girlfriend’s father
Ngayon ay asawa at mayron ng pamilya / Now I have a wife and a family
Wala namang multo munit takot sa asawa ko / There aren’t any ghosts but I’m afraid of my wife

‘Di mo na kailangang magalinlangan / You don’t need to doubt
Kung tama ang gagawin mo / If you’re gonna do the right thing
Basta’t huwag kalimutang magdahan-dahan / As long as you don’t forget to be careful
Kung ‘di sigurado sa kalalabasan, kalalabasan ng binabalak mo / If the outcome, the outcome of your plans isn’t sure

Maliit na butas lumalaki / A small hole grows larger
Konting gusot dumadami / A small ruffle multiplies
Hindi mo maibabaon sa limot at bahala / You can’t bury (something) in forgetfulness and caution
Kapag nabulag ka ng maling akala / If you’re blinded by wrong assumptions

Nasaan na ba ako? / Where am I?
Kaninong kama ‘to? / Whose bed is this?
Ilang ulit na bang nagigising sa ibang kwarto? / How many times have I woken up in a different room?
Naglayas sa bahay, akala madali ang buhay / Ran away from home, thinking life was easy
Ngayon ay nagsisi dahil ‘di nakapagtapos / Now regretting not having graduated

‘Di mo na kailangang magalinlangan / You don’t need to doubt
Kung tama ang gagawin mo / If you’re gonna do the right thing
Basta’t huwag kalimutang magdahan-dahan / As long as you don’t forget to be careful
Kung ‘di sigurado sa kalalabasan, kalalabasan ng binabalak mo / If the outcome, the outcome of your plans isn’t sure

Maliit na butas lumalaki / A small hole grows larger
Konting gusot dumadami / A small ruffle multiplies
Hindi mo maibabaon sa limot at bahala / You can’t bury (something) in forgetfulness and caution
Kapag nabulag ka ng maling akala / If you’re blinded by wrong assumptions

Mga kumakalat na balita / There’s news spreading around
Na ang kaligtasa’y madaling makuha / That safety is easy to get
Bago maniwala, magisip-isip ka muna / Before believing, make sure to think first
Marami ang namamatay sa maling akala / There’s a lot who die from wrong assumptions

Maliit na butas lumalaki (Sa maling akala) / A small hole grows larger (from wrong assumptions)
Konting gusot dumadami (Sa maling akala) / A small ruffle multiplies (from wrong assumptions)
Hindi mo maibabaon sa limot at bahala / You can’t bury (something) in forgetfulness and caution
Kapag nabulag ka ng maling akala (Sa maling akala) / If you’re blinded by wrong assumptions (from wrong assumptions)
