Payable on Death


Não acredito ainda que conseguimos realizar essa grande vontade que tinhamos de ver ao vivo nossos grandes ídolos da música se apresendando do jeito que vimos. O show além de oferecer uma oportunidade para reunir os amigos e apreciar uma boa música, foi muito alem das expectativas. Em outras palavras, excedeu-as. A vibe do lugar e da musica, todos curtindo muito aquela sonzera, cada um de seu jeito, claro. Foi muita energia por uma só noite. Eu e os meus outros amigos, juntos curtindo mta música. Muito empolgados com a presença de palco dos caras no palco. A performance, extremamente "foda". Inesquecível e sem descrição.

"Here comes the boys from the south,
how you like me now?"

O que é real?

Por que você me diz todas essas mentiras?
Eu quero apenas viver minha vida
Eu não quero deixar meus sonhos para trás
Diga-me por que estou somente envelhecendo?
Minha paciência está ficando mais curta
Estou ficando sem tempo
Sei que tenho o que quero

Desta vez é real
Qualquer coisa que eu queira
Qualquer coisa que eu precise
Qualquer coisa

Por que você me faz sentir negado
Sempre me deixando de lado
Você não decide o que é certo e o que é errado
Diga-me por quê eu me sinto tão pressionado?
Procurando pela resposta
Estou ficando sem tempo
Tenho o que quero

Desta vez é real
Qualquer coisa que eu queira
Qualquer coisa que eu precise
Qualquer coisa

Evocação

Essa literatura que te mata; essa poesia que te sufoca; essa melodia que te entorpece; essa pintura que te transtorna; se eu só pudesse fazer um trato com deus pediria para trocarmos de papel por bem pouco tempo, fazê-lo pensar sobre a dor e a carne, sentir as lágrimas e a solidão. Minha unica certeza seria a sua resposta:

"Não"

Deus nunca estaria ao nosso nível.
Nunca estariamos ao nível de Deus.

Identified Number

Some things we don't talk about
better do without
just hold a smile
we're falling in and out of love
the same damn problem
together all the while

you can never say never
why we don't know when
time and time again
younger now then we were before
don't let me go,
don't let me go,
don't let me go,
don't let me go,
don't let me go,
don't let me go

picture, you're the queen of everything
as far as the eye can see
under your command
i will be your guardian
when all is crumbling
steady your hand

you can never say never
why we don't know when
time and time again
younger now then we were before
don't let me go,
don't let me go,
don't let me go,
don't let me go,
don't let me go,
don't let me go

we're falling apart
and coming together again and again
we're coming apart
but we pull it together
pull it together, together again

don't let me go,
don't let me go,
don't let me go,
don't let me go,
don't let me go,
don't let me go(x2)

Pyramid

I don't know when whereabouts or how come things happened this way
I can still look at you even though you're not here anymore
I can still picture you going out of the bed and talking
I cry upon your handwriting and the words you wrote
I can still smell the taste of your skin
I can still remember every embrace
when everything comes around
I still pretend it's all good
pain is still fresh
day after day
it hurts
please
dont
let
go

You change your thoughts as you change your clothes.
You vanish and appear.You go and come.
Bend over and say you regret.
I am ordering! Don't be so sick!

The end of the begining

"Life likes being nice with him" they said
you're not getting hurt
stare at my eyes
and watch it all over again

show me, life's always spinning around
so never doubt of anything
everything is possible when
this is the end of the beginning

love came
twisted and distorted my faith
as the rain falls on me

Load up the gun
release all the bullets on my chest
kill me at least
Reload the gun
don't stop shooting until i got there
right at your side

stare at my eyes
because life's just once
look at my face
life's just once
stare at my eyes
because life's just once for you...
look at me.

Noo!!

I can't believe
it is all gone for now x3
(I am undone)

show me, life's always spinning around
so never doubt of anything
everything is possible when
this is the end of the beginning

acoustic
show me, life's always spinning around
so never doubt of anything
everything is possible when
this is the end of the beginning

Don't let go

adiós, te amo.
cuando nos quedamos juntos por el primeiro mes
yo pensé que estávamos bien
cambiando las canciónes y cantantes
hablando de la vida de nosotros
tu mirava mis ojos
te mirava por mucho más tiempo
tu segurava mis manos
te segurava junto
dormiamos, despiertávamos
yo, tu, tu, yo.
muchas bromas, muchos besos
mucho sexo, mucha amistad
una pareja perfecta, ¿sí?
me parecio que yo he vivido cuatro años
mientras estavamos juntos
te enseñe como hablar en inglés
me enseñastes como vivir, como respirar, como besar
y lo peor es saber que hay alguien haciendo mi parte ahora
dime porque fuiste aya
dime porque estas con miedo
dime porque llego la hora
vamos bailar mientras la luz no llega.
no existe tiempo ni espacio, ni vida, ni alegrias.
¿dónde fuiste? ¿porque?
mañana no vá tener colores
mañana no haverá sonrizas
mañana no vivo sin ti.
perdoname. .

Nó de dor no estômago, almoço

Conversão?

Eu vomito em teu leito toda sua ignorância
Desprezo todo desrespeito, tua angustia e arrogância
Te conduzo por um labirinto de carros e oficinas
Te conserto como o tempo não consertaria

Vida, céu, luz e magia
acordei sonhando para sonhar acordado, levantado
veemente de olhos cerrados
Te levanto na plenitude de teu orgulho
arraigada na consciência e moral de todas as cartilhas e textos

Teu pai, teu vô e tua vó outrora já diziam
um bom homem nunca falha, nunca se dá por vencido

Da saudade da intensidade do toque do teu amor possessivo
Pela posse eu não posso desviar-me dos afazeres

Nos trilhos hei de colocar-me como um vagão
com a perspectiva, foco e atenção
Degluto todas formas de degustação
te espero, sentado, no fim da estação

Talvez um dia ou três
talvez um mês, quatro ou dezeseis
Espero a mudança outra vez
espero mais quatro, cinco, seis.

Quem sabe um novo tu não chegará?
Quem sabe seja tu?
Quem sabe?

Conversão?

Conformidade

Ao presenciar a ausência calorosas dos teus braços
assisto o fim do mundo em um canal ecológico que preocupa-se com o homem
Ao temer o desague das tuas lágrimas
Renuncio a memória do amor entre nós dois

Se o céu está cinza e negro acima de nossas cabeças
estamos cuidando de nós mesmos sem amor
sem sinal, sem alarme, sem vida.

Quando no circo os animais cansarem de se entreter com outros animais
Quando palavras de sentimentos não forem enunciadas
de desilusão trazida pela ilusão de crer em algo
que não se sente, nem toca, nem ouve, nem é real

Ao presenciar a ausência dos tus braços
no meu corpo entrelaçados
na penumbra do silêncio
sem sinal, sem alarme, sem vida.

Vermelho, amarelo ou verde
Passarei despercebido pela tua sistemática
atravessarei teus campos de jasmim
colherei teus frutos em plena madrugada
te darei prazer e amor e alegria

Ria, ria, ria:
Desapareça como a lua renega sempre o sol de um novo dia.

Quotes and Sayings

A plenty of quotes I admire:

Dream as if you'll live forever, live as if you'll die today.

A dog at play has the mind of a wise martial arts master,
a mind capable of perfect focus

There is always death and taxes; however,
death doesn't get worse every year.

It's like my mind knows what's right
but my heart is being retarded and still cares

There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face

Boy, when you're dead, they really fix you up.
I hope to hell when I do die
somebody has sense enough to just dump me in the river or something.
Anything except sticking me in a goddam cemetery.
People coming and putting a bunch of flowers on your stomach on Sunday,
and all that crap.
Who wants flowers when you're dead? Nobody

Dogs laugh, but they laugh with their tails.

Love is not measured by how you feel,
but how you make the other person feel.

Life is a process. We are a process. The universe is a process.

I was born the day you kissed me,
died the day you left me,
but lived for the time that you loved me

Life is like an onion:
You peel it off one layer at a time, and sometimes you weep.

I talk to him when I'm lonesome like;
and I'm sure he understands.
When he looks at me so attentively,
and gently licks my hands;
then he rubs his nose on my tailored clothes,
but I never say naught thereat.
For the good Lord knows I can buy more clothes,
but never a friend like that.

Love the moment.
Flowers grow out of dark moments.
Therefore, each moment is vital.
It affects the whole.
Life is a succession of such moments
and to live each, is to succeed.

Love can make you happy but often times it hurts,
but love is only special when you give it to who its worth.

One reason a dog can be such a comfort
when you're feeling blue is that he doesn't try to find out why.

Life is just one damned thing after another.

Do not take life too seriously. You will never get out of it alive.

I wish I had the guts to walk away
and forget about what we had.
But, I can’t because I know you won't come after me,
and I guess that's what hurts the most.

Love that we can not have is the one that last the longest,
hurts the deepest and feels the strongest.

When a dog barks at the moon,
then it is religion;
but when he barks at strangers, it is patriotism!

Never say 'I like you' if you don't care.
never talk about feelings if they're not there.
never touch a life if you mean to break a heart.

Dogs are not our whole life,
but they make our lives whole. ~Roger Caras

The most affectionate creature in the world is a wet dog. ~Ambrose Bierce

A dog can express more with his tail in seconds
than his owner can express with his tongue in hours.

III - From reflecting as of last year

) The latest posts are out of order.
) They were all written around August from the last year.
) It ended into this one; the last one of the session
"winter in black or white".

Today is just another day which I hope the time passes faster than yesterday.
I dont think I will someday find the love I had in someone else's eyes. Sometimes I feel like I really believe that there was true love frm her, but sometimes not. Very often she sends me messages from her mobile saying that she feels pain cuz she misses me. I have returned a couple of messages trying to get in touch, but she always ignores me and doesnt answer anything. I wanted so much the things got back the way it used to be. I try to pretend that I'm already over her but no one seems to stitch up my scars and I got a bad feeling that no one can. At least, I've gained a schoolarship and there's a huge chance for me to go to canada for free. I am anxious about that too. Who knows If i will face the bears...?

II - Winter feels like pictures

There was a day that she wanted to know more and more about me. As she called me asking "what bands do you like? what would you like to receive from me in this Valentine's?" I'll never forget someone cared about my feelings, no one never used to treat me that way. Seriously, I never had a date so thoughtful, so caring. No way I wouldn't fall in love to someone so beautiful on the inside, so close and warm. We were in the same hotel of our first time, though we rented a room in the back apartment, when she suddenly handed in the gift. I was really flattered. But when I thought that the DVD it was enough. The biggest present was still to come. After I saved it on my back pack, I returned to bed and I remember she picked her handbag and took out something really small and unfamiliar. I noticed... eventhough i didn't care, so I kept kissing her neck and holding her tightly. Then she turned her face to me and said "It's also to you.". That wasn't fair. When I stared at her hands, there was something really small and totally folded. I opened it. It was a letter. For god sake. Just writing these memories, it feels like it happened yesterday... It hurts and makes me breath outta the pace... Why? The letter was written in both sides of the paper. It reminds me of the several draws she made... and at the end... at the bottom of the sheet, a little fishie. So I asked in that moment"how come is it draw?" You guys migh find it funny. She said... "...as you live in cassino, I needed to know how to swim, because it is a beach place. Besides, when I was younger I had a fishy I used to call "Gup", your nickname from now on..." Since that day as she explained me, was her new gup. Ham, I won't give further details, but unfortunately it became a sad memory. It looks like someone threw me out of the water, or I blew over how to swim and for this reason I drowned into to an unknown ocean. The worst is that I know it's worthless to think there's gonna be a savior, because it won't. My love is stupified, confused, hopeless.It's midnight now and it's not nice to know that I am meaningless to her. I could have died for her that I wouldn't care. Thinking it over, actually, it seems like I'm doing this now. If it fits better to her, I stay away, if that's what she needs... being apart forever. Even it costs me pain, even it kills me... I do stay as she wants me to. I miss your face, I miss you.

I - It's reflecting over you

"Hi. What's up?" I asked. "Nice. What about you?" An answer and inside a question. "I'm cool." Then we started to talk about how was getting tough to find cool people on the internet. We had some talk the whole nght and we went to sleep when the day was rising and the sun was shining. That would be the most unforgettable saturday night of my entire life. It was april 11th, I was so attached to: my college that started in this same year: 2008; my job career which started as well; I mean, my lifestyle was changing upside down and with this new thing, this thing called love, which I've never dealt with it was a bit scary to have to face an almost new life with so many issues, new patterns, new relationships. It felt like my new beginning. Before decide to go to sleep we guessed we could meet each other for real. We both got really excited and anxious about it we agreed to meet next saturday at the bus station. After a week of frustration, it was finally saturday. It was 7 o-five and I was reaching the station, wondering if the bus had already arrived, when I received a call. "Hi, where are you? I'm already here!" A stressful but the most passionating voice gripped my ears. "Ok. I'm seeing you already!" I said. And I couldn't believe my own words when I sighted the most beautiful smile I would ever find. - If life had an auto-recording filming camera or better, an hourglass we could turn down and get back to a meaningful moment of your life, until now, I'd ask to go for this - In a blink of an eye, we were in a hotel, we talked about our lives, we got along preety well, we passed all night together, embraced in that cold night. Those were our first promises of love to each other. "I love you" plus "thanks god I've found you" were asserted... The temperature was cold but we were warm underneath the blankets: embraced. The eyes and the smile that I will never forget.

Spanglish: el dolor

Yo no lo creo que a veces me quedo piensando en ti
aunque hace mucho tiempo extraño tu imagen en el espejo
dónde estás, dónde fuiste que no me dijiste nada?
nadie me habló de ti
no lo escucho tu nombre hace tiempo
pero es la cosa más presente 
que existe en los días de grises de la semana se que passó
díimelo ahora, no te olvides que también soy la razón de tu dolor
tendrás que tener muchas gañas de olvidarme y dejarme
no lo soy tonto solo creo en sentimentos
bueno, esta fue la última carta que escribo en meses 
con el fin de decirte: ¡te amo!
eres la coisa que más valiosa en toda mi corta vida
no estoy borracho, ni estoy en mi peor día
que pasa es que ahora puedo hablar sin nadie a decirme lo que pensar.
¿si deseo que vuelvas? 
fuiste algo malo en mi vida 
pero también mi mayor felicidad
bueno, ahora llegó la hora que me voy a sueñar en verdad
nos vemos.

Move on

I was on the edge of a distant world,
a shattered life
with nowhere left to turn
till I saw you there
and everything I tought had gone to waste
falling into place

Bilhete

é imprescindivel a interação, o toque, os gestos, a fala, o abraço, o obrigado, a companhia, o entardecer, a penumbra do teu aconchego, a solidão de vosso momento que as almas parecem escorregar dos dedos jogando-se com epifania para as teclas, dançando diacronicamente, com pequenos ticks sucessivos: um atrás do ouro em uma melodia que te embala e hipnotiza e te faz esquecer e lembrar e te mata e te salva de ti mesmo. um baile de luzes na estrada, apreensivo as placas, no fundo da densa e tão umida madrugada: sem estrelas, sem nada. por favor: nao durma, nao bata.

Espaço vazio em branco

estou tão distante do espaço, tão confuso com as poucas fendas restantes do tempo, buracos que questionam através do corpo (o tangível)a minha mente (o abstrato), sentindo como se as respostas fossem insignificantes assim como todo o resto. seria isso o real? seria isso o surreal? cada melodia, cada retrato, palavras em pedaços, maços, ou traços criados para enganar, corromper, transformar, estragar, desestabilizar, aquecer, simular, iluminar. Ontem fui dormir mais tarde um pouco, ainda que nada mude, vai ser o amanhã um novo mundo igual.
