You

Have you ever wondered why
you always do those same things without enjoying them?
But you do them without knowing why
and life is short.
 
Why do you let the world chain your feet?
You pretend it's normal to be unhappy.
Is it right what you're doing to yourself?
Why do you do that? Why?
 
You hate your boss
without realizing that the boss has always been within you.
And you sleep with your wife even though you don't love her anymore.
Is it fear?
Why do you do this to yourself?
 
Why don't you stop pretending for a moment
and rip off that uniform you don't want?
But you don't want to, you'd rather sleep and not see.
Why do you do that? Why?
 
You hate your boss
without realizing that the boss has always been within you.
And you sleep with your wife even though you don't love her anymore.
Is it fear?
Why do you do this to yourself?
 
Why, man?
 
But you don't want to, you'd rather sleep and not see.
Why do you do that? Why?
Is it fear?
Why do you do this to yourself?
Why do you do this to yourself?

The Stone of Genesis

'At the bottom of the ocean there is a chest
That holds a secret longed for since the dawn of time
By geniuses, sages, alchemists and conquerors
I knew this chest in a strange ritual
Reserved for the few
Today I can finally reveal that this centuries quest
Was in vain'
 
The Stone of Genesis
The Stone of Genesis
It's right here and now
The Stone of Genesis
You can touch
 
It's the ladder of your old dream
That will always end where it started
It is the key to the greatest power
That is not worth a chewing gum
That someone chewed, chewed
 
The Stone of Genesis
The Stone of Genesis
It's right here and now
The Stone of Genesis
You can touch
 
It is the Everyday Stone
That is on the floor from anywhere
Where the beggar steps
And the saint spits
When he passes, on this stone
 
The Stone of Genesis
The Stone of Genesis
It's right here and now
The Stone of Genesis
You can touch
 
It's God drawing crooked lines
It is one more that is born and begins to die
Playing tic-tac-toe, the game of war
Without being able to win, without winning
 
The Stone of Genesis
The Stone of Genesis
It's right here and now
The Stone of Genesis
You can touch
The Stone of Genesis

Lottery of Babylon

Go! Go! Go!
And scream to the world that you're right
You learned everything while you were mute
Now it is necessary to shout and sing Rock
And demonstrate the theorem of life and the tricks of chess
Of chess!
 
You have the answers to the questions
You solved the equations you didn't know
And there's nothing left to do but
Truths and truths more truths and truths to tell me
To declare!
 
Everything that had to be wept has already been cried
You have already fulfilled the twelve labours
Rewrote books from past centuries
Signed duplicates, invented decks of cards
 
Walked by day and slept at night.
Repaired phonographs to listen to music
You know snippets of the Bible by heart
You know magic recipes for love
 
You know in Mars an old farmer friend
Who taught you to have the good and the best
The best!
 
But what you don't fully know
It's how making money
But this is easy and you won't stop
You have no questions to ask
Because you only have truths to say
To declare!
 

The Apple

Versions: #2
If this love
Stay between the two of us
It's going to be so poor, love
It will wear out
 
If I love you and you love me
A love to two profanes
The love of all the mortal
Because who likes apples
Will like them all
Because all of them are the same
 
If I love you and you love me
And another else comes when you call
How dare I to condemn you?
Your endless beauty
How can you be stuck
Like a saint on an altar?
 
When I've chosen you
To live by my side
I wanted to be your soul,
have your body, everything else
But I understood
That beyond two, there are more...
 
Love only lasts in freedom
Jealousy is only pride
I suffer, but I will set you free
What do I want
If I deprive you
Of what I venerate the most
Which is the beauty of lying down...
