Portuguese Version

I lack hope
The irrationality of mankind grows stronger
The greedy for power spreads like a cancer
The blind search for money disrupts the ethics
I'm not able to keep my hopes

I lack trust
Our leaders do not guide by example
Corruption degenerates their weak spirits
The system decays and deforms them
I'm too sick to have trust

I lack faith
I no longer hear these empty promises
I can't believe in their delusional ideals
My last dream was swallowed
I don't expect any changes

There's no relief
Only my lonely words echoing uselessly
inside halls of petrified minds
Lacking support
