Fermenting River
(Ricardo Hoffmann)

I felt early my remonstrance
Against the fermenting river
And let drift me by a choice
Of sad thoughts

I was looking for a friend
A friend who understand
But I found lost autumn leaves
Those who felt nearness to me
And were so far away

I observed the great sense
The boundary between lonelyness
And stupid community
I felt the nothingness is near
Flotsam that’s what we are
Without right meaning

Let me live
Let me die
Both alone and in silence with
The choice of my trembling heart
