about

We decided to take our first step into the music as a child who takes his first steps into the world: full of doubts, perplexities and questions. Often, some of these questions seem to have no answer, but sometimes we only need to take a look around: maybe what we are searching for is just under our eyes. We won’t make this journey alone, a family is the starting point of every human being, the fulcrum and a place where everyone can find time to rest. We present you this work that we have prepared for an entire year, a lifetime, an experience that everyone has lived, is currently living or has not lived yet.

Recorded at Frequenze Studio, Monza (MB).
Released by Sonic Vista Music.

Track Name: Look Ahead
Anywhere but home,
with no one by my side,
with no race inside, no fear,
I just want my whole lost life.
My cryin’ son in mind,
oh, daughter and wife…I’ll come back stronger.
Track Name: Anywhere But Home
In this sort of vacant night
I will close all my young lights.
All these streets that tell me loud:
“You will never come back home”.
When this rising dawn blind my eyes
I will shut the doors of time.
My friends, now we have to go
inside this war that we have to stop!

There’s walls of thoughts now
that’ll be invading my mind for all the rest of time
as a faithful calm of desire.
Shade of morning wakes up us
and we are crossing out our faces, names and signs,
our eyes are full of cold fire.

In this war we’re facing old screens
that could have never existed.
By these arms that let me stay alive
this land is cold and wide.
When this hell that blinds all my face
and l’ll never see the end.
My friends, I will never leave your hands
your shadows burn on me.

Now the sun comes down on us
carried by the wings of night that are arrived
as a voice that screams a cease-fire…
Our faces seem to turn
as a puddle of mud that now is changed into blood
we are kept awake by tomorrow.

In this stage of bloody-stained bodies
I’m trying to save my skin.
By this rain of bullets,
from the skies I see two crows arise.
How this battle changed all my life
I can feel the cold in veins.
My friends, wars of money,
many million dollars for our breath.
Track Name: Images Of Mind
There I
see the world on
old dreams and also
the distortions
of memories.I can not believe,
I realize that’s not me
he has the same face
as the mirror in front of me.Silence
lights this room now
while days fly away by,
tears and oceans
that are leaving me.
Mother, tries to explain me
why dad’s gone away, while
I was still nothing,
learning to live.Teach me something
I can’t listen
voices calling
words can’t clean this pain.

Is this your soul?
Well, I don’t know,
but I don’t want you!

Climb mountains
I don’t want to see them on my mind
Swim oceans
just to purify myself away
Catch fire
burning all the images of mind
Breathe the sky
I can’t live without your light at all

Climb mountains
I remember times we were all there
Swim oceans
only with your love that burns in me
Catch fire
waiting your return, it never happened
Breathe the sky
well, only now I can understand all

Shine on Heaven!
Track Name: A Cold Morning
I still want to see you like a paradise,
feeling deeply
only a mention of affection by looking into your eyes,
the lighthouse is calling loud your name, now,
the rain comes down and crash into the sea.Carried by the headwind you will go,
leaving me and our mother alone,
well, I don’t know…I’m running with my mind
trying to reach you and find,
rage and sorrows seems to change like old colors of time.
I remember how the silence of my past
brings me back into the violence of my loss.
There’s a picture in my mind where we were young
lay down to the fields of grain where we felt great.

Smiles and laughts are lost by now
while you’re getting to the stairs
and nothing change your thoughts.
You were full of your pride,
so can you sacrifice me?

I’m running with my mind,
I’m trying to reach you and find,
rage and sorrows are broken like colors of rainbow
and are unable to see your intention to love me again.
Oh, I know, I don’t know, I don’t know…
How I know?
Track Name: Again
With no one by my side,
with no race inside, no fear,
I walk alone, again…With no one by my side,
with no race inside, no fear…
I’ll get back stronger,
of course that I will…I’ll come back.
Track Name: Changing Colours
Here I
see the world on
old dreams and also
no distortion
that blinds my faith.

Never look back and inside
that’s my first page to hide
how I feel now before this journey
and I have to stay with my own.
All my cryings have been stopped
while I was walking a lot
from the south to the north I see
silence of towns in my head.

Voice of time is arrived
from the skies to this land
and it calls me again “come back home”,
but I can’t hear that so much more.
So I decided to buy
all the rage with my sins
and I’ll never know the name of the actions
that I felt inside another life.

So I don’t know
where I’ll go
whitout faces again.
So I don’t know
where I’ll go
changing colours again.

I don’t know or I know why
I have gone with the night.
Now I see all the images,
she’s only a vacant light.
She doesn’t know how to live in this world
she was only thirteen years old.
While the sun is going away by now
I can’t change what I’ve done.

Near me, far away…
Near me… Far…
Far away…
Far away from all…

So I don’t know
where I’ll go
whitout faces again.
So I don’t know
where I’ll go
changing colours again.

SILENCE!
Track Name: A New Beginning
Near me, far me…
Near me, far…
Near me…
Far…

Now, now it’s time.
I’m arrived, I decided
nevermind
how I feel.
Someone else
tells me how
how I have,
have to do
without emotions,
sorrows again
now I borrow your pain.

I laid down
down on a bed
smoking opium
when a man
got down to
to the stairs
and told me
about a suicide.

Ipnotized,
I idealized, I realised
now I need to see your face
to kiss your eyes another time.

I run away,
away from this.
Ways like days
full of thorns
repudiate
by the hate
for myself
now I’m sure
you can not forgive me
I was far away from all
you’ve forgot who I am.

LET ME LIVE!

Now I look back and inside
I have nothing to hide
how I’m after this long long journey.
All my cryings have been stopped
by the wind of the north
that is blowing hard and carrying me away.

Voice of time, I’m arrived
and now I’m wet and tired,
steps like sandstones,
I’m coming back home.
My young sister is crying now
now there’s nothing to hide
only now I know the name of the actions.
And the doors of time that I’ve shut
like the mirror where I have looked
show me all my mistakes and troubles.

Pardon me,
please give me
your heart.
Track Name: Look Behind
Anywhere but home
with no one by my side
with no race inside, no fear
falling here in your tears
looking through your eyes.
Track Name: Freedom Supermarket
Don’t try to sell me something that I can not realize.
You think that my religion is to appear and not to live.
Mirrors are broken by echos of ourselves,
lying on dust clouds of human belief.

You take my imagination
then warp it in front of my eyes.
Cities are walking on!
No one can see that is only a white lie.

And than you come inside,
into the market of freedom
buying and selling open mind.
And everything is paradise,
they will be able to choose your useless life
to the end of time.

Struck by this supermarket
I realize that is my town,
people has only his price
and nobody can cry.
Screens and shop windows are cutting all my senses.
I’ll run away from this city
nobody’ll can see me escaping,
this deafening silence is
burning all my violence.

You take my imagination,
then warp it in front of my eyes.
Cities are walking on!
No one can see that is only a white lie.
