Postcards

Those who cry and those who laugh

While China is looking at the Moon as its new conquest

Europe gets indebted and retreats

At 65 at 67 and even soon at 70 years old

we will all be sitting on the benches left by the wayside

Beaten well before the end of the game

they will join the cloakroom kicking themselves

The yesterday’s conquerors have a hangover

since the inherited cup has been taken away from them, fed up.

Chorus

China, China, you survived the Opium war story  

You hold your revenge and nevermind for me   

you have faith you feel great you believe in your destiny  

as for me day after day you see remains all the worry  

 

By thousands they run aground in Lesbos after the Lampedusa episode

Europe is moved before changing her mind; she has had it up to here.

Through successive waves they clear off believing in the Magi

They spin all their belongings to access the mirage

while the old Lady is herself struggling in due wreck

Millions of unemployed are left aside

Day by day the burden becomes heavier and heavier

Weaved canvas quickly torn, nobody says hurrah anymore

In Brussels far from the field, they expedite and rule over

They even give lessons of law to those in obvious drift

Chorus

China, China, you survived the Opium war story  

You hold your revenge and nevermind for me   

you have faith you feel great, you believe in your destiny  

as for me day after day you see remains all the worry  

 

Running out of ideas to revive their own system

they keep on criticising the Chinese regime

Too authoritarian

and not enough politically widened 

It’s true that ruling 1,3 billion

is leaving no broad choice

Just look at home

how changing a law

turns quickly into pugilism

India is always set as a model

with its democracy

Still apart from being a mess what else saying

sorry for being impolite

With so many differences and their daily share of divergence

so far is the Ghandi era who almost united them

And these castes looking to each other up and down all day long

who said there’s a good vibe and everybody’s tomorrow would be bright ?!

Chorus

China, China, you survived the Opium war story  

You hold your revenge and nevermind for me   

you have faith you feel great you believe in your destiny  

as for me day after day you see remains all the worry  

Chorus

China China, you survived the Opium war story  

You hold your revenge and nevermind for me   

you have faith you feel great, you believe in your destiny  

as for me day after day you see remains all the worry  

you invest you are daring, I am only about tomorrow caring 

 

Europa, Europa, nevertheless you see

many are those who still believe in you
