SEPARATING THE ELEMENTS
(Aria Da Capo)

ARIA 1
Separating the elements,
everything again seems clear,
you revalue the "invaluable"
as some distant things come near.

Dust is left of some old agonies,
maybe dust that still feels pain,
evening shadows growing long,
ash is left of some old lingering,
drifting down Memory Lane,
still in love... unfinished song.

ARIA 2
I saw "Avra Beach" becoming "Avra Palm,"
"Nissaki" to "Alatsi" been transformed,
the angry south seas suddenly going calm,
my dreams and hopes surviving, but deformed.

I saw some "old friends" keeping a common stance,
alliances unholy thrive in need,
I tried to break in, but not a fucking chance,
I lack this common element called "greed."

I've heard of Edeltraud traveling to Berlin,
to Brussels, Barcelona, 3 Big "B"s!
Like Brahms, Bach and Beethoven, so where do I begin
to separate the wasps from the bees?

My world has changed for good: The elements unmixed,
I don't confuse the present with the past,
perpetual motion rules, only this fact is fixed,
feeling the same love and the same lust.

Heraclitus was right, I have no other news,
but Parmenides' sphere, a looming cloud,
still waits for a reply, perhaps of doubtful use:
why Lemonia became Edeltraud?

ARIA 1 (Da Capo)
Separating the elements,
helps me think of life and death,
love and hate are not so different,
I inhale them in one breath.

Dust is left of some old agonies,
maybe dust that still feels pain,
evening shadows growing long,
ash is left of some old lingering,
drifting down Memory Lane,
still in love... unfinished song.
