    “Green grass, blue eyes, grey skies, God bless silent pain and happiness” – England seen by a Brazilian (not any Brazilian, a fuckin’ genius and legend, Caetano Veloso)

    Cibelle (and Devendra Banhart) cross the streets of London without fear…

    It miss the emotional touch of Caetano Veloso…

    This song was written by Caetano while he was in his exile in London, due to the Military Dictactorship in Brazil. You can notice explicit, thoug subtle, references about that in the song.

    The part about “while my eyes goo looking for flying saucers in the sky” is a reference to the habit of the military junta of using supposed UFO in news as a way of distracting Brazilians of what was going on, while they kept torturing people in secret.
