Sêmen – Mestre Ambrósio

Great song, cool lyrics, strange name. That’s manguebeat for you. I translated some of the lyrics below.

Nos antigos rincões da mata virgem / In the old corners of the virgin forest
Foi um sêmen plantado com meu nome / Semen with my name was planted 
A raiz de tão dura ninguém come / A root so tough that no one eats it
Porque nela plantei a minha origem / Because in it I planted my origin
Quem tentar chegar perto tem vertigem / Those who try to get close, get dizzy
Ensinar o caminho, eu não sei / To teach the way, I don’t know how
Das mil vezes que por lá eu passei / Of the 1,000 times that I passed by there
Nunca pude guardar o seu desenho / I could never keep its design
Como posso saber de onde venho / How can I know where I come from
Se a semente profunda eu não toquei? / If I never touched the deep seed
