Expecting the dusk to be bleaker than us on this dry land
Approaching a place where the dust fills the soul of an old man
I misunderstood but I did what I could to preserve my rights
And what did I get?!
And now that the plain is consuming my eyes I can feel it around
The thrill of a breakdown.

What did you forsake?
This Mexican betrayal,
I’ve never thought I
Would grow up so dull.

The suit of a thug who’s draining his mug in a spoiled dive
The amber affair flows up in the air when I speak of a plan
Remembering when we were keeping the fence in an overt asset
What did I get?
And now that the plain gets its water downhill I can hear well,
The thrill of a breakdown.

Save what you may find
Whatever they may say,
In order to be strong.

The kiss of a land is something you can’t rub without pain
The struggle would bear anyhow to drift out but it’s all vain
I shouldn’t explain but I’ll do it again if I’ll ever be there
Do I have no fear?
And now that the plain is outreaching the rift I can hear well,
The thrill of a breakdown.
