Lyrics
we die in our sleep
like those who are out of practice
we leave all urgent messages
unanswered


to correct the errors of the past
the Society of Lost Brothers
is preparing a celebration
of everything
that has not been celebrated yet
the President
is compiling a list
of all such items
he writes them down in a book
located in his memory
when his memory overflows
he doesn't notice
only one of the Lost Brothers knows:
the celebration
will never be complete
the errors
will never be corrected


the Gardener of Else
is preparing a feast for his rival
The Voiceless Adept of Other
who measures success in elapsed time
and mixed meanings
(his palace is not made of air
but of vacuum)

when the feast begins
all sounds are transparent
like palms of amputated hands;
all information has been brought to zero -
let's start again!

when the feast is over
all clocks in the world strike two
twice in a row
but not so we could hear

when the guests are gone
all items in the world trade places
with themselves
