Lyrics inspired by Mania and Pinkhas, parents of Clarice Lispector.


Everything is happening
right here
we'll wait one hour
then make our way

Yet my step is faltering
hold on dear
a little tighter
I'll lead you there

We'll change our names
move underground
learn a new tongue
and find a home

Whoever we were
no one will know
nor will they care
from where we came

They demand a heavy price
how will we
with two to feed and
one on the way

Pass me back your razorblade
give it here
I've secret treasure
sewn in my hem
