Mindless Self Indulgence



In one of those piquant examples of the power of computers, the lovely Ginevra Di Marco's name is translated by Google as: Mindless Self Indulgence.

I love stuff like that. My name can be translated from Latin as "one-eyed night watchman." 

I let Google take a crack at the lyrics, too:
Thanks to life which has given me so much,
I gave two stars that when I open
perfect distinguish black from white,
and its upper sky starry background,
and among the multitudes the man I love.

Thanks to life which has given me so much,
gave me the listening in all its opening
capture day and night crickets and canaries,
wind howling storms hammer
and the voice so tender who I'm loving it.

Thanks to life which has given me so much,
gave me the sound and the ABC
with him the words that I think and say,
mother, friend, brother illuminating light,
the way of the soul of who I'm loving it.

Thanks to life which has given me so much,
gave me the ride of my tired feet,
I went with them to cities and puddles,
beaches and deserts, mountains and plans
and your house, your street, the courtyard.

Thanks to life which has given me so much,
I gave my heart shaking its border
when I look at the fruit of the human brain,
when I look so good from evil,
when I look deep in your eyes clear.

Thanks to life which has given me so much,
gave me the rice and gave me crying,
so distinguish joy and pain
the two materials which form my singing
and the singing of others that it is the same song
and the hand of all that is my own song.

Thanks to life
