because the tide is low
the boat doesn't reach the moor
not even necessary
better is to drift
especially by changing time
when the low tide turns high
and the boat slowly
and we return seeing
everything we've seen
as if there was no drift
no tides
no boat
not even no river to navigate



porque a maré está baixa
o barco não chega à amarra
nem é preciso
melhor é andar à deriva
especialmente à hora da mudança
quando a maré baixa vira cheia
e o barco lentamente
e voltamos a ver
tudo o que já tinhamos visto
como se não houvesse deriva
nem marés
nem barco
nem squer um rio para navegar
