Yo no tengo plata 


Artist yes, artist yes
Art? artist? My artist self?
whimsical fag

Stop and do an analysis

One eye in the back, one in front
Losing is also part
The camera is behind us
Not even God knows how to deal with himself 

"Gustavo, listen more and talk less"

Take the bus with your hand on your heart
Looking at the camera without leaving the wagon
One step back another step forward

What do you do in the name of Jesus?
