Translation

In spite of you

Today you are in charge
If you said, we agree
There's no discussion
My people today
Talk about you behind your back
And looking to the floor, you see?
 
You invented this state
And tried to invent
All our darkness
You invented a sin
But forgot to invent
To forgive
 
In spite of you
Tomorrow will be
Another day
I ask you
Where you will hide
From our happiness
How will you ban
When a cock insists
To sing
New water will be sprouting
And people loving each other
All the time
 
When the time comes
My suffering
I'll ask you to pay with interest
All this love repressed
This shout contained
This samba in the dark
 
You invented sadness
So please just
Disinvent it
You will pay doubled
Every tear that fell
On my face
 
In spite of you
Tomorrow will be
Another day
You'll have to endure
When the morning is born
With its poems
How will you explain yourself
When the sky get clear
Out of the blue, with impunity
My people are gonna sing
Next to you
 
In spite of you
Tomorrow will be
Another day
You're actually going down
And stuff
