about

"I've been listening to this song for a long time, thanks to a compilation my mom owns in CD, and it has always fascinated me for expressing so well feelings of isolation, longing and bewilderment, although with some kind of hope. Whenever I find myself surrounded by those feelings, it always comes to my mind. This time it came to my voice, by choice and by necessity." - Cairo Braga, musician

"The city is an entanglement of grayscale. The colourful boy is no more than a dimmed shadow blending to the bleakness of the concrete and of the hearts he finds. Solitude is palpable, even though there are signs of life amidst the neon light billboards. Where could be all those who promised love, hope, company? Nobody told him how hard it was to grow living in a brotherhood that exists in name only." - Marco Magoga, illustrator

Track Name: Brother, Where Are You?
a small boy walked down the city streets
hope was in his eyes
as he searched in the faces of the people he'd meet
for one he could recognize

brother, where are you?
they told me that you came this way
brother, where are you?
they said you came this way

the eyes of the people who passed him by
were as cold and as hard as stone
the poor boy whimpered and began to cry
because he was all alone

brother, where are you?
they told me that you came this way
brother, where are you?
they said you came this way

now there are many who'll swear it's true
that brothers all we are
yet it seems that there are very few
who will answer a brother's call

brother, where are you?
they told me that you came this way
brother, where are you?
they said you came this way

I'm glad you came my way
I'm so glad you came my way
