I walk through the dream

Several people up to their necks in water

Behind the giant walls 

I inherited a 74-year-old trauma

It runs through my blood 

I carry all its shades

 

Green is the color of my soul

Brown are my roots

Gray is the shadow of my tears 

 

Easy is the escape

Hard is the guilt

Fading away are the memories 

 

The sea suffocates 

The air chokes

Death is the sky 

and the ground
