Come Un Cammello In Una Grondaia - Lyrics by Battiato Franco

Vivo come un cammello in una grondaiain questa illustre e onorata societ
à!E ancora, sto aspettando, un'ottima occasioneper acquistare un paio d'ali, e abbandonare il pianeta,E cosa devono vedere ancora gli occhi e sopportare?I demoni feroci della guerra, che fingono di pregare!
Eppure, lo so bene che dietro a ogni violenza esisteil male... se fossi un po' pi
ù furbo, non mi lascerei tentare.
Come piombo pesa il cielo questa notte.
Quante pene e inutili dolori.
