Em Possível In-Possible
Transpassa Through my veins Em minhas veias Your invisible presence Tua presenca invisível passes Teu coração Your heart pulsa beats nos fios de cabelo in the strands of your hair Peso da conciência a weight of conscience suor brotando sweat braking out nas unhas encravadas, in my clenched fingernails, Te afago I caress you travesseiro pillow de lágrimas of tears Entre teia Among Body Tissue e peia and shacle busco viagens I look for a journey de mente of the mind
