I was born one day in June
in the year '77
Planet Mercury
and the year of the snake
without a patent
tattooed and on my forehead
in my mother's stomach
marked the next phase
It makes me cry
without anesthesia on the stretcher
My dad only said it's Ana Maria
If it would be the first cry
that I would try
burning the wounds
and giving myself the drums
I used to be then like an open book
but I read the small print on the text,
like an architect
constructing each effect
correct, incorrect, I know how to learn everything regarding
knowing that some people
want damage
step up
take time, take a year
with my teddy looking at the everyday.
drawings transformed
and the winter in great summer
Papa gave me, with my insistence,
a game, it was about blame and [receiving?]
But in the [cartu] they made competence
and it was when i felt my first impotence
 
1970 shhh
1970 shhh
1970 shhh
 
1977 don't tell me no
That one foresees
all that changes, that would one would do differently
The year in which the serpent was born shhh (bis)
 
My adolescence
was a strange stage
The body is a drum set
and the head, a guitar
The orchestra [narronato]
nothing broken for the stare
of a girl who only sizes swords
hormone shot
about the population without a shape
in which the seasons change
Roads on crossroads
Each one of which is her home
She prepared the bait
The sacred cursed
looking pissed
My line, the truth
never searched for her seat
My search was a mere
process of pure battery
Pupil of the poet
that marked our spit
in the range that looked to the exit
the military parade in monotone step
polychromatic colors
uniforms of little tone
Detonate my question
The voice, if it sounded or not
My first rhyme that sounded
and wrapped me up
For me, my search wasn't a matter of scene
It was something necessary
That already marked my failure
So everything
more than necessary
Was when I understood
that everyone wants to be a pirate
 
1970 shhh
1970 shhh
1970 shhh
 
1977 don't tell me no
That one foresees
all that changes, that would one would do differently
The year in which the serpent was born shhh (bis)
