Track Name: Any Crap Art is Better Than No Art At All
welcome to an
ironic situation
of restriction-ruled

all I ever wanted was
my mind exploding
by putting out
all the songs I'm holding

twenty-four hours
and nothing more
twenty minutes, thirty songs
any crap art is better
than no art at all

planning the day may help
but it's not enough
we'll make music
no matter how tough

let's finish
everything that we started
before that
we cannot be halted

I've never done
something like this
music is evertyhing to me
a need, a will, a passion
a vivid expression of the world within
Track Name: A Matéria Solitária no Breu
madrugada solitária
céu nublado
em vigília
olhos estrelados

um instrumentopode não ser musical?
uma voz pode não ser musical?
uma vida pode não ser musical?
música pode não ser vivida?

madrugada solitária
plano extenso
vida ao contrário

som é imaterial
mas é a matéria
que pulsa o pulso
de muita gente

é a minha matéria
esse corpo que você vê e toca
é som
essa voz que você ouve e ressoa
é carne, osso e música.
