Q: What do the lyrics mean?
A: Here's a translation of the poem:
The crazed woman cried out: "O you who takes
with you part of me and leaves the other,
either take the one or give back the other, or kill
both at the same time: stay! stop your steps,
at least let our voices be the last link;
I do not speak of kisses: another might be more worthy
"of yours. What do you fear if you remain, oh evil one?
You could deny, since you were able to flee."

was rendered at 800x600 to make it work optimally on Professor Anceschi's video projector; the second

was done at 720p to look a little better on YouTube.

My thanks to Alessandra Anceschi for facilitating the production of this video.
