lyrics

Nel retrovisore come una camera li vidi; li vidi la notte
uscire i lampioni marciare un plotone la folla che sempre
la piazza si muove è come una serie di abbagli in un tunnel
ma sembra che abbiano spine di rosa fra i denti
e quando Lupita in vestaglia invecchiata riusa il ventaglio vuol dire
che un carico arriva e uno si perde e chi lo ritrova sa solo tacere
non deve parlare Lupita segnala l’entrata nel porto
la notte somiglia ad un faro impazzito lo scoglio è vastissimo
whisky che trinchi tacendo la voce da dentro il cervello
il gabbiano è un uccello che il pesce l’afferra sul pelo dell’acqua
ci sono i ragazzi che giocano a football che sono ragazze di coro
che corrono dietro al pallone di testa ricciuta lo stile di diego
se rompono il vetro col piede di porco il rasato le accoppa
e le superarono ma io lo capivo dagli occhi, andavano dritti
ne ho visti tanti indicarli lo sanno che fanno, ci vanno –
ma loro sembravano finti, due santi dipinti, e io andai al bar
mi presi un caffè, non dissi mai niente, sembrava che me lo
sentissi.

In the rearview mirror like a camera I saw them; I saw the night
come out the streetlamps marching a platoon the crowd that always,
the street moving is like a series of glares in a tunnel
but it’s like they had rose thorns between their teeth
and when Lupita not so young in her robe waves her fan again
it means a load is coming and one is lost and the one
who finds it can only keep his mouth shut can’t talk
Lupita marks the entrance to the port
at night like a crazy lighthouse the cliff is immense
whisky you knock back shutting up the voice inside your brain
the gull is a bird that catches the fish on the water’s
skin there are boys playing football and a chorus of girls running after
the ball with curly hair like diego armando’s
if they break the glass with a crowbar the skinhead will kill them
but I understood from the guys’ pupils, they went straight on
I saw so many people pointing to them they know what they’re doing,
they’re going there – but they seem fake, two painted saints, and I went to the bar and had a coffee, I didn’t say a word, it was like
I knew it.
