about

This song epitomizes much of what is our musical identity as composers and lyricists in this band. A Mirage that belongs somewhere between the past, the future and the hallucination. A present-day metropolis that vanishes before our eyes, revealing how short is the time of humans in the period of the Universe.

lyrics

Era uma estrada ao relento
Poeira de vermelho no alcatrão
Suspensos, cabos de alta ilusão.
Mesmo à beira, em aurora de ponta
Pássaros e heras cobrem os muros
E de era em era despem os tubos.

Nas fendas nascem cactos e vigiam lagartos
A montra encardida do pronto-a-existir.

Mega-estruturas de momento e betão-alado.
O semáforo é esfínge de ferro
Ferrugem que sopra o horizonte.

Um peso-pluma é alma-tijolo
no arranha-céus que começa e desaba outra vez
ali e por dentro

Alucinou assim Morfeu Babel.
Anfitrião de Esparta e Tebas.
Imolação de pó.

Parece ser assim todos os dias na cidade volátil
onde o tempo abrandou tanto que parou.

Nesta direção, um ciclone radiante
Vem cobrir este sítio de ausência.
O vento, o vento, levanta, o vento, danado, levanta, o pó duma laje
onde crescem as palavras:

Aos ombros, ao colo, aos pés de gigantes.
