radia # 640: The sublime revenge of being happy by Paulo Chagas & DIE ZWEITE HÄLFTE
#640 for Radio Zero & #235: Sintonizável by MUMTAZ
“The sublime revenge of being happy”
composed and conducted by Paulo Chagas
performed by Illustrious Unknown Creative Ensemble
Recognizing the journey through the cypresses
Far to the city
(This dance is just for bugs)
Away the sun
Far from a beach of solitary existences
(Woodwind instruments dig a fictitious reunion)
Bitter does not identify
Flying here is the superiority of the dream.
The Swan will never know the silence
There’s also an immense joy
Forgotten between the lines
That makes us shiver
The sublime revenge of being happy
Infinity begins to be a natural thing
The only mystery is life.
The free vanishing of ideals
In meditation on the cosmos
In a huge field of sunflowers
and growing cellos
There is still the sea
The heroic delight of adventure
