Track Name: Sirens
Wonder is no more
we have slaughtered it all
all has become habitual
we know too much
but learnt nothing. I'm old now:
sirens used to call to tell me
how light is the weight of the water
the peace you feel while you dissolve.
But now just the silence
I have no feelings, I don't feel home
surrounded by a wall that I can't see

Do I dare to disturb you to say I'm insane?
As you hear the my silence but you don't feel the pain.

My mind is a graveyard of tempests
Thunders then used to play with my heartbeat
and I screamed the sound of freedom
bound to my vessel wood.
You'll never love as deeply
as when you try to embrace a shadow
and you can't tell its face from death.

So this is how you feel when you're safe and wise?
The storms outside will make me remember.
Now should I have learnt to leave things behind?
'cause they made me the idiot, they make me the different one.
Track Name: Irreverence
I will sit right here, watching all of you passing by
I will sit right here, right here

When they spit on your face their outrage
take care of yourself
take a breathe
spit in return

Sometimes things only go by
sometimes you have only to watch
but you can’t, all you know
is that you will fly with some irriverence

When they spit on your face their outrage
take care of yourself
take a breathe
spit in return

Feel the events slip away on your skin
feel the events like a snail on the hot tarmac
slimy walk on your path
sodium chloride won’t permit it

I will sit right here, watching all of you passing by
cause it’s all like running water on my body

Face the life with the excuse
that everyone dies sooner or later
take your time to get over it
and go with some irriverence

Right here
I won’t move
Track Name: NAND You (feat. Nicola Renzi)
Show me a sign 
that I'm getting older 
a new line above my eyes.
Time has always been 
an unexpected saviour 
an excuse
to me, a mirror
of a pensive shadow
filled with colliding thoughts.
Anybody out there 
anyone left to relate to?

And you 
an empty space 
and you 
on top of my regrets 

Just one word 
before you fade
tell me 
is this worth living? 
It's cold outside 
ain't nothing there to do 
tell me 
what are we waiting for? 

And you 
an empty seat
and you 
you seemed to understand me 

I may wait here
forever what for?
Strangers we will stand
in silence

You, the figure I have carved
so perfectly, I wanted
your heart to beat
for me

How huge is your shadow? 
It's leaving my whole world 
crawling in darkness. 
Your shape stands on me
against the setting sun 
pouring black on orange 
breathing slowly 
as I beg the day to end,

how are you feeling now
my old beloved wraith? 
Your voice will be trapped 
in my skin until the end 
I will close the doors
of my crying mind
as I beg the day to end 
Track Name: Faith
I give it all
I give it all
I’ll give it all I have

Consciousness of being conscious-less
of what I’m going to be.
Void, realizing what I have to be
without any approvals
the leash tights but
this struggle, my needs, our own values
different points of view
oxygen isn’t enough but
I’ll give it all I have

This struggle, my needs, our own values
different points of view
oxygen isn’t enough.
Escape, trying to escape from this
but there’s no way out
can’t find the exit but

do I dare to disturb you to say I'm insane?
As you hear the my silence but you don't feel the pain.

Screaming, keep on screaming my reasons
I have nothing else to say
that I’m going to
give it all I have
Screaming, keep on screaming my reasons
I have nothing else to say
I'll give it all I have
Track Name: Arjuna
Now
I understand my
enemies
the struggle they bear to
prevail on my side
our rage is equally noble
and I forgot how to hate
I won't fight today

I forgot how to hate
I won't fight today
the world is in indifferent now
because I won't fight

Let it be
let it all be
everything is
what it has to be
Let it be
let it all be
just close your eyes
and disappear

Now
I understand my
enemies
we're acting as the masks
we are all wearing
and which am I?
And who am I to choose?
and which am I?
And who am I to choose?

I've escaped my cage to
fly over my perspective
but to find outside there's
nothing I can do
People suiciding on railroad tracks
everyone's right and now there's
nothing I can do
Track Name: Rhinos
Look at me, I'm breathing 
I paint a shadow on the ground 
it seems like I'm still alive 
I can remember too many things
I can remember too many things 

I am feeling nothing 
I am feeling nothing 
so why is my heart still beating? 
so why  I've still not gone mad? 

I am the idiot, I am the different one 
Look around, watch them laughing
I am the last one, I am the wild spirit 
they're breaking their world with smiling faces
they're breaking their world with smiling faces. 

I am the idiot, I am the different one 
I see the end of the world, I see it cracking 
I am the last one, I am the wild spirit 
nothing matters, nothing alive  anymore
nothing matters, nothing alive  anymore
Track Name: Eyes in Eyes
Strangers we stand
eyes in eyes of each other
our words
are only killing time

Who will I
tell this story?
silence surrounds my
hours, I've
forgotten how to
speak you know

I am a new one
so how should I behave
with you old star
dying in my skyline

Rain falls again
mornings blowing in shadows
and I'm alright
days slipping bare
through my fingers
Oh why are you looking
to me? Ok, I'm a liar
ain't nothing more to say
but that all I want
is nothing. please
erase me erase me
erase me oh

Strangers we stand
eyes in eyes of each other
our words
are only killing time

I am a new one
so how should I behave
with you old star
dying in my skyline.
You know I am not
brave enough to fight
asleep enough to
find an illusion
an illusion
pulling me again to life
I've died so well this time
pulling me again to life
I've died so well this time
Track Name: Dreamwars
People
passing by
buying
mass-produced
dreams
they know they're always
right
they never fail in what
they try

Everyone of us
is just a machine
but not so many
are really aware
stuck in a traffic jam
hearing the news
scrolling unconsciously
on the cell phone

Why do you seek for
the dead among the
living?
Because I lost
the faith in myself
here I have no place

Numbers
are making people starve
are making people die
as you calculate everything
as you run the world
you rationally enslave us

Why do you seek for the dead
among the living?
Because I lost the faith
in myself
here I have no place

Have you ever felt like
you were the last man living?
Or chocked by friendly
conversations with mannequin-men?

Keep calm 
Enjoy 
A right make up's more important 
Than your feelings
I think  
too much, Please  
erase this 
Erase this, erase me all 

Tear down the veil 
you hypocrites 
show how you want  all I am. 
Dare you to say your hunger 
is everything for you that matters 

Lay to rest your nightmares,
life files away in silence,
lay to rest your nightmares,
life files away in silence

In empty space
we come and go
touching nothing
I am not innocent
I pierced the veil around
the heaven where
we used to live

Lay to rest your nightmares,
life files away in silence.
Lay to rest your nightmares,
life files away in despair

(I am the world
the last man living
when I'll close my eyes
everything will end)

Sirens call me again
I'll loose the bends
it's strange
on your own you die
the waves will erase my name forever
finally free from all this dreamed wars

dreamed wars
dreamed wars

I am not innocent
I'll close my eyes and everything will end
I am not innocent
Will you stand by me while I disappear?
I am not innocent
I'll close my eyes and everything will end
I am not innocent
Will you stand by me while I disappear?
