Cave of the Moon of Saturn

Lyrics

Today I cried when I saw on television
that the angels are killing for illusions
They are demons in churches and hospitals

Today a burning star fell from the sky
Fell deep inside my chest, in my heart
and it killed my ideals and my dreams

If I had no children
one love and three dogs
I would leave this world
Never looking back

If I had no friends
a country and its people
I would go to Saturn
or Andromeda

Today I saw that this worldis dying
of hate, madness, consumption and loneliness
and the viruses, the causes are us

Life is worth a lot more than billions of coins
ideologies, governments and religions
Only Love subverts so much pain.

If I had no children
one love and three dogs
I would leave this world
Never looking back

If I had no friends
a country and its people
I would go to Saturn
or Andromeda
I would go to Saturn
Never looking back
On a Saturn moon I would stay
In a cave of the Moon of Saturn
or Andromeda

 


“The lyrics and melody of this song began to be composed one day after I watched on television a journalistic story in which a nurse reported a doctor who, when helping a patient who had a heart attack in front of the hospital, told him to be taken to another hospital farther away.


Seeing this a deep sadness took over me. I saw in it the selfishness, individualism, lack of solidarity that we live in our world nowadays.

In fact, I felt like taking a spaceship and disappearing from Earth. So I made this song that is a warning cry for maybe all of mankind. “
