The wound that‘s bleeding
the head I came out of
I’ve split myself in many pieces
forgot the name of each one.
Who is the girl in yellow?
Who is the girl in blue?
Where can I find the one in red?
My feet have taken me everywhere,
as I have never left this place.
My lips have spoken out everything,
though I’ve moved them just once.
I saw the stars falling
and that was the end of night.
