Ritual

Why dream
Life is so unknown and magical
It sometimes sleeps by your side
Silent
Silent
 
Why look for paradise
If even the poet closes his book
He feels the scent of a flower in the garbage
And gossips
Gossips
 
So many stories about a great love that was lost
Lost places, chasms
You make a sacrifice, slay a thousand virgins
One by one, through thousands of days
 
For the same God that teaches on credit
The wisest and the dumbest
That when it comes to practice, love always comes backwards
That when it comes to practice, love always comes backwards

For the same God that teaches on credit
The wisest and the dumbest
That when it comes to practice, love always comes backwards
That when it comes to practice, love always comes backwards
 
Ah, why cry
Life is beautiful and sad, naked
So careless and precise
That one day it ends
It ends
