Su Ogni Stesa Pietra / On Every Laid Stone

Spalle al muro,

spalle alla porta, chiusa.

Ora il mio tattoo parla dell'oggi

ma è solo storia di vento e sabbia.

Vivo e muoio 

in fenicio tremito, icona.

Back against the wall

back against the door, closed.

My tattoo now speaks of today

but it's only a story about wind and sand.

I live and die

in Phoenician tremor, an icon.

Un infinito rosso

è il mio dio.

Solo un punto

tra confini di colonne.

Su ogni stesa pietra,

un selciato di lacrime e di gioia.

An endless red

is my god.

Just one point, between limits of columns.

On every laid stone,

the cobbles of tears and joy.
