It was then when I was my fatherbrothermother and you was my  
motherfathersister It was then when
we lived tommorrow When we died in the woods It was then when our  
city escaped to trees When the
ashes were our home When the fires glued our lights It was then when  
our eyes were blind Our touches
thumb Our tongues speechless It was then when I was you When you  
enslaved my fathermother And I
sold my brothersister It was then when we lived The trees an-eyed  
Anhillated by our senses I escaped
