About the album

Oh eye that sheds tears and swells
Oh my father, the deaf one, who sharpened its sting
Oh mother, she runs behind her mother
Feeding on grass, the heads of all grass

Beloved, you named me with love
After you named me, you named me again
You lifted me on your wings above the sky
And after you lifted me, you lifted me again

You lifted me on your wings above the sky
And you started communicating with me through signals and pain
You led me to injustice with a blind inclination
And due to your continuous leading, you led me

You reminded me of the days we had
I thought it was like today, twelve years old
After ten years, I can’t describe it
And you abandoned me, abandoned me, abandoned me.
