Because we are stars. Because we sing.

Because we sing with light.

Because we are birds that give birth to flames.

Because we spread our wings all over the sky.

Our light is our voice.

We are cutting the path for the soul

on its way to death.

Because the three of us in the tribe are hunters.

These three love bears.

Because it was never time

in which these three did not hunt.

Because we look at the hills with contempt.

This song is a star song.
