Entre un govern que ho fa malament i un poble que ho permet, hi ha una complicitat vergonyosa. (Victor Hugo)


Damunt de la raó la incertesa
capgira i trasbalsa conceptes.

Fa sentir la tebior
de la ploma a les mans i
despulla de rigideses.

Alè lleu que atansa al so
persistent de les paraules
i en descobreix l’embruix subtil.

Interrogant que en remou
la cendra i fa dubtar
de nou per poder    entendre.

                         Montserrat Abelló

So long ago, i don't remember when
that's when they say i lost my only friend
well they said she died easy of a broken heart disease
as i listened through the cemetery trees
i seen the sun comin' up at the funeral at dawn
the long broken arm of human law
now it always seemed such a waste
she always had a pretty face
so i wondered how she hung around this place

hey, come on try a little
nothing is forever
there's got to be something better than
in the middle
but me & cinderella
we put it all together we can drive it home
with one headlight

she said it's cold
it feels like independence day
and i can't break away from this parade
but there's got to be an opening
somewhere here in front of me
through this maze of ugliness and greed
and i seen the sign up ahead
at the county line bridge
sayin' all there's good and nothingness is dead
we'll run until she's out of breath
she ran until there's nothin' left
she hit the end it's just her window ledge


well this place is old
it feels just like a beat up truck
i turn the engine, but the engine doesn't turn
well it smells of cheap wine and cigarettes
this place is always such a mess
sometimes i think i'd like to watch it burn
i'm so alone, and i feel just like somebody else
man, i ain't changed, but i know i ain't the same
but somewhere here in between the city walls of dyin' dreams
i think of death it must be killin' me
