Lyrics’ translation:
I want to drink tonight
so as nothing to remember
I want to trap myself in smoke
and fear no consequences

I want to drink tonight
and surpass my limits
I want to confess my lost dreams
covered in smoke’s veil

I’ll light up with cigarettes and burn out with liquor
Now that I’ve taken fright
may everything turn into ashes

I want to drink tonight
erase everything and everyone
I want to disappear in smoke
and look back never again
