Terroristic russia is bombing Ukraine now.
Please, go and ask your governments to stop them.
Ask to switch them off SWIFT, payments, exports, EVERYTHING!

Vanessa da Mata "Absurdo" lyrics

Translation to: EN

Havia tanto pra lhe contar
A natureza
Mudava a forma o estado e o lugar
Era absurdo

Havia tanto pra lhe mostrar
Era tão belo
Mas olhe agora o estrago em que está

Tapetes fartos de folhas e flores
O chão do mundo se varre aqui
Essa idéia do natural ser sujo
Do inorgânico não se faz

Destruição é reflexo do humano
Se a ambição desumana o Ser
Essa imagem infértil do deserto
Nunca pensei que chegasse aqui

Auto-destrutivos,
Falsas vitimas nocivas?

Havia tanto pra aproveitar
Sem poderio
Tantas histórias, tantos sabores
Capins dourados

Havia tanto pra respirar
Era tão fino
Naqueles rios a gente banhava

Desmatam tudo e reclamam do tempo
Que ironia conflitante ser
Desequilíbrio que alimenta as pragas
Alterado grão, alterado pão

Sujamos rios, dependemos das águas
Tanto faz os meios violentos
Luxúria é ética do perverso vivo
Morto por dinheiro

Cores, tantas cores
Tais belezas
Foram-se
Versos e estrelas
Tantas fadas que eu não vi

Falsos bens, progresso?
Com a mãe, ingratidão
Deram o galinheiro
Pra raposa vigiar

There were so many things to tell you
Nature
Changed the shape, the state and the place
It was absurd

There were so many things to show to you
It was so beautiful
But notice what a mess it is now

Carpets full of leaves and flowers
Here is where we sweep the world's floor
This idea of the natural being dirty
And of the inorganic not making itself

Destruction is a human reflex
If greed dehumanizes the Human
This infertile image of a desert
I never thought it would come so far

Self-destructive
Fake harmful victims?

There was so much for us to enjoy
Without any might
So many stories, so many flavors
Golden grass

There was so much air to breathe
It was so thin
We used to bathe ourselves in that river

They deforest everything and brag about the time
What a big irony
Such unbalance that feeds the plagues
Altered grain, altered bread

We dirty the rivers, we need water to live
The violent means don't matter
The living one's ethics is their lust
They were killed because of money

Colors, so many colors
So beautiful
Faded away
Verses and stars
So many fairies I didn't see

Fake belongings, progress?
Acting ungratefully with your mothers
They gave the chicken pen
For the fox to guard
