Panis et Circencis (English translation)

English translation

Bread and Circuses

I wanted to sing
a song illuminated by the sun
I raised the sails to the wind
I freed the tigers and the lions in the yard
But the people in the dining hall
Are busy being born and dying
 
I demanded that
a dagger of pure luminous steel be made
To kill my love and I killed her
At five o'clock on Central Avenue
But the people in the dining hall
Are busy being born and dying
 
I demanded that
leaves of dreams be planted in the Garden of the Sun
The leaves know how to seek the sun
And the roots seek, seek
 
But the people in the dining hall
These people in the dining hall
Are busy being born and dying
But the people in the dining hall
Are busy being born and dying
