A – Viva la Casta!

Your kiss, sweet flavor
Paranormal happiest disaster
Insanity of INSTINCT, INSTINCT
Labyrinth of dreaming never ends

Your smile, fair flower
My sight is going to closure
Gravity of MY HEART, MY HEART
Dancing of pleasure forever

A miracle that God gave me
You swooped down, with the voice of an angel
And someone else’s name
If anything and everything will end
Please let me hold on to an illusion

Viva la Vida!
Viva la Casta!
My body, all of it, I devote it to you
Rosa rossa
A balance in red, and with your thorns
Mangle me for all eternity

Embraced by maddeningly gentle lies
Today and tomorrow, I’ll wander the darkness
I’ll become your shadow, always at your side
Until the time your life is over

Viva la Vida!
Viva la Casta!
My body, all of it, I devote it to you
Rosa rossa
Just once is fine, open the door

Viva la Vida!
Viva la Casta!
If I can’t reach you, we’d best not be bound
Rosa rossa
On a blazing red cross
Crucify me for all eternity!

Notes:

I left the Spanish bits in the song as they were, since I think it makes my translation more closely reflect the intent of the original. However, the Spanish is translated to English as follows:

Viva la vida = Long live life
Viva la casta = Long live the caste
Rosa rossa = Red rose
