"It's not about you, it's not about me and it's not about us either. Let's stop pretending everything is fine, we don't need to shake our hands anymore. If you are happy with it, well, congratulations, but I won't be in your party. Instead, I'll keep doing what I need to do, what I've been doing despite of your lack of support. It takes time, it does no profit, its almost invisible, I know, I know, but I can´t help it, its my only way to enpower what I believe, is where I get my strenght from. I'm not talking about cultural politics, I leave that to you and your friends (hope you enjoy), I'm talking about something else, further. The songs that I sing to my son when he goes to sleep belong to no one, yet its ours without any kind of sick business in between. These moments we share are rare and simple, there are no names for it, no need for permission, they will soon vanish, but nothing can take them away. So, it doesn't matter if you don't answer our calls or if one day you pretend you like us but in the next you forgot about it, and it doesn't really matter what you do with the public money (well...). Our conscious is clear, what we do is not dirtier or old fashionable or lacks technique or, or, or... What we do is just fine, we are proud of it and we will keep doing it. Those who tried it will never forget, it's some sort of freedom, and it's free because is ours. That no one can take from us."
