Pedro Alberto I got to know this through Levi the Poet, and this album was a really nice surprise. Great, emotional stuff here. Favorite track: Anezka (feat. Levi the Poet).

Track Name: The Prologue
Oh Lord, lay me down, down to the river where You make me clean. Oh Lord, raise me up, out of the water and back to life again.

Track Name: Hominem
Oh, oh, oh! I open my eyes for the first time to light, brought out of the womb, but I cannot recall.
Oh, oh, oh! My mind wasn't yet collecting memories, so I have to rely on what people say they saw.

Oh, oh, oh! I've no recollection of my beginning, or how I survived the years that I couldn't fend for myself.
Oh, oh, oh! Infancy is a mystery to me, it seems so fragile, yet the strongest thing of all.

Oh, oh, oh! I've lost myself in the life of a young man, this world was built for me and I can hear it's call.
Oh, oh, oh! I hate my brothers, and what they've become! But I am guilty of the same, guilty of it all...

Bridge: And innocence in infancy cannot be taken literally, it is only a symbol of what's to come.
And O! Humility! Where can you be? You leave as soon as we stop suckin' on our thumbs!

Oh, oh, oh! God, this flesh is the weakest thing I know, and from this curse how can any man be saved?
Oh, oh, oh! God, You have mercy on us all, this shell is just so prone to misbehave.
