lyrics

(English translation follows)

O capitalismo
Eu nasci no capitalismo
E eu sei que é hora
De sair

O capitalismo
Não quero morrer no capitalismo
E eu sinto que é hora
De fugir

Ponte
Ó capitalismo você me disse
Que ia trazer
Um paraíso
Onde tudo se podia ter

Mas capitalismo
Hoje em dia meu capitão
Nem o rio nem um peixe
Nem o ar nem uma nuvem

Tem liberdade
Da morte viva
No olhar de você
Acho que é hora
De correr

Ponte
O Capitalismo
O que resta
Já que acordei
Do sonho vivo
Em que me embrulhei?

***

capitalism/I was born into capitalism/ and I know that it’s time/to leave

Capitalism/I don’t want to die in capitalism/and I know that it’s time/to flee

Bridge: Capitalism/you told me/that you would bring/a paradise/where everything could be had

What capitalism/today my captain/not even the river or the fish/ not even the air or the cloud

Is free from / the living death/in your gaze/ and I believe it is time to run

capitalism/what is left/now that I have awoken/from the living dream/that I had wrapped myself up in?
