about

Adapted from The Brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Dostoyevsky

lyrics

Let me make it plain.
I believe like a child that suffering will be healed
And made up for, that all
The humiliating absurdity of human contradictions

Will vanish like a pitiful mirage,
like the despicable fabrication
of the impotent and infinitely small mind of man,

That in the world’s finale, at the moment of
Eternal harmony, something so precious will

Come to pass that it
it will suffice for all hearts,
for the comforting of all resentments,

For the atonement of all the crimes of humanity,
Of all the blood they’ve shed; that it will make it not
Only possible to forgive but to justify

All that has happened with men

I believe like a child
I believe like a child
I believe
