A long time ago,
a fatal bird named
met the arrow of an archer
along the lava coasts
for years, thinking she was being chased
she escaped the arrow
**why not face the danger? The arrow was attached to her wing
and she wanted to be free.*Dragging the arrow,
others get hurt and its my fault
Down! Towards the mouth of the devil
her arrow, my eyes...
Chromaggia, come take these eyes
I would rather be blind!
*Another translation is "Pulling the arrow
others get wounded because of me
because of me"
**Other translation: "why don't you face danger? The arrow was attached to its wing
and it flew trying to shake it off"
This song is sung by Sarah Brightman as Blind Mag in Repo! The Genetic Opera. The original version is in Italian; this is the English translation. Mag is singing about herself and how she was tricked into working for GeneCo. Knowing her eyes would be taken away by the company, she blinds herself by gouging them out. It's a long story. xP
