about

“Don`t see yourself when you look in the mirror? Break it. When putting the pieces back together again, embrace the freedom of turning in to whoever you want”

lyrics

LYRICS
ENGLISH:

I can’t see anything that hasn’t crumbled
Don’t even understand how I’m standing
Looking at someone else in a hanging mirror
Who I recognize but can’t remember

I don’t hear anyone’s steps amongst the ruins
Not even insects rolling dust
A dry wind chills me, I shrug my shoulders
But really I’m burnin’ up alone

After the fire left only smoke and embers
And I take the ashes of my bare chest
Soon my two arms will be wings
And I’ll stand reborn and raw

And even that old and dehydrated shadow
That mimics the many I am and was
Is trapped in the shards of the mirror
But with cut-off feet cannot go where I do

Before the feathers are born
I want to scratch myself with my nails
To have scraped the skin
A rough map showing how to get back

I will pass
As a dumb saint
Aiming high
Laughing
Preparing for the jump
Leaving behind... everything

PORTUGUESE:

Não vejo nada que não tenha desabado
Nem mesmo entendo como estou de pé
Olhando um outro num espelho estilhaçado
Que reconheço mas não sei quem é

Não ouço passos de ninguém entre os escombros
Nem mesmo insetos revirando o pó
Um vento seco me arrepia, encolho os ombros
Pois na verdade estou queimando só

Depois do fogo restam só fumaça e brasas
E eu tiro as cinzas do meu peito nu
Daqui a pouco meus dois braços serão asas
E eu me levanto renascido e cru

E mesmo aquela velha sombra ressecada
Que imita tantos quanto eu fui e sou
Ficou nos cacos do espelho aprisionada
De pés cortados não vai onde eu vou

Antes de nascerem as plumas
Com minhas unhas quero me arranhar
Pra ter riscado na pele
Um mapa tosco pra poder voltar`

Vou passar
Como um santo mudo
Mirando o alto
Rindo
Preparando o salto
Deixando pra trás… tudo
