Lombrello E La Macchina Da Cucire - Lyrics by Battiato Franco


Lyrics
Ero solo come un ombrello su unamacchina da cucire.
Dalle pendici dei monti Iblei,a settentrione.
Ho percorso il cammino, arrampicandomiper universi e mondi,con atti di pensiero e umori cerebrali.L'abisso non mi chiama, sto sul cigliocome un cespuglio: quieto come un insettoche si prende il sole.
Scendevo lungo il fiume scrollando le spalle.....
Che cena infame stasera,che pessimo vino,chiacchiero col vicino.
Lei non ha finezza,non sa sopportare l'ebbrezza.
Colgo frasi occidentali.
Schizzano dal cervello i pensieri -fini le calze,la Coscienza trascendentale,no l'
Idea si incarna.
Dice che questa estateci sar
à la fine del mondo.
The end of the world,berretto di pelo e sottanina di t
àrtan.
Have we cold feet about the cosmos?
