Lyrics

Sulphureous Haze
 

These hills are dragging me in a

hot sulphureous haze

The sky is falling, i can't manage that for long

And you, where have you been?

 

We own the history,

or only a world of lies?

Another land is burning

i shall never forget.

And you, where have you been?

 

That godless fire up there,

will soon reach the sky

Sulphureous haze has gone,

but never leaves me.

 

That godless fire up there,

will soon reach the sky

My mates fought with the flames

I can't explain why

These memories

are blowin' me away

Sulphureous haze has gone,

but never leaves me.

 

Soul Mates
 

Up on the hill my feelings are lying still

And in the air the sound of love is strange and weak

Searching for who will complete my journey

In the white land the golden sunbeam isn't burning

 

Uuuuuuuh I close my eyes Uuuuuuuh

 

Here she comes, from the river Who thinks that we're happy together?
She is there, wondering why I'm alone, And what makes us happy, now?

Loving each other, living without a problem, being soul mates

 

The river is flowing down the hill side
The air is fresh and I have shivers down my spine

Silent dreams and feeble fantasies

I thought that somewhere there's a chance to innovate my life

 

Uuuuuuuh Over this world Uuuuuuuh

 

Here she comes, from the river Who thinks that we're happy together?
She is there, wondering why I'm alone And what makes us happy, now?

Loving each other living without a problem being soul mates

 

She told me she didn't love me

But it's so cold and cloudy today

To run away from my soul

So everybody's going to stay at home

 

Here she comes, from the river Who thinks that we're happy together?

She is there, wondering why I'm alone, And what makes us happy, now?

Loving each other, living without a problem, dancing on bad days being soul mates.

Peacock Girl

The pillow under my head is floating high in the space

And the clown tears are turning red

The dancer in her feathers suit is dancing over my bed

And in my mind she's fading away

 

Kaleiodoscopic tangerine dreams

That peacock girl hipnotise me

 

Golden ladies and Jesus Children memories of my time

The flower of the dead's alive

Krishna people and spaceship temples suspended in the sky

The winter wind blow out my life

 

My shelter is what I can see
That peacock girl is killing me

Over my dreams and far away
Over my dreams and far away

 

Brighter Days
 

Just lost the battle in

the windy forest
we're trying to save home

My friends and my division

are dead and lost, we
can't win anymore
 

I wanna live
brighter days
better life

We're not like you you fool

our clothes are made of feathers and silk
the gun is ready, sir (Shooooooooooot)
your captain sits and seems to be in a daze

Their army's in our town
try to get'em out
I wanna be free

I wanna live
brighter days
better life

Freedom is the greatest dream I have
and it's in the hands of someone who
use his people
like puppets on a game

We're not like you you fool

our clothes are made of feathers and silk
the gun is ready, sir (Shooooooooooot)
your captain sits and seems to be in a daze

The town is half destroyed (Shooooooooooot)
your leader sits and seems to be in a daze
 

Throw Your Watch To The Water
 

No space, no soil, no time

In my world the clock doesn't run
cos I've got a magic mind
In Granada there's no light

Everyone runs, out of time
Splendid visions in the sky

Devils and angels dance together

In the kingdom of the sun

 

Ecstasy of images tonight
My eyes turn back, the fire is alive
Metaphysical dynamic life
the future's not so very far

 

Everyone runs, out of time
Satan's visions in the sky

Devils and angels live together

In the kingdom of the moon

 

Colours Of The Mind

 

In the ruined houses
my memories decay
and a million voices
sound softly in my head

will a gentle music cures this
feeble minded man?

so I'm searching for something
that drives my thoughts away
like a hundred horses
that dash around all day

will another day be better than this?


I'll wake up and blow my pain away
colours of my mind someday
turn the world into love

with my head I'll fly from place to place
don't need wings or planes today
just let fly my mind out


No more ruined houses 
just colours everywhere
not a skyscraper
that paints the town in grey

will a gentle music cures this
feeble minded man?

so I'm searching for something
that drives my thoughts away
like a hundred flowers
to gather up with care

will another day be better than this?


I'll wake up and blow my pain away
colours of my mind someday
turn the world into love

with my head I'll fly from place to place
don't need wings or planes today
just let fly my mind out


No other day will be better than this.

I Believe In Magic

Mr. Hotpeach

 

Mr Hotpeach is a sailor

He sails the seven seas on his own

People try to approach him

But there's no chance to see him

 

His boat is in rough water

Could he save his lonely life?

Mr Hotpeach is in danger

His only safety is a rope

Trying to keep the balance
Close to the edge, he falls (Raddoppiato rispetto alla bozza)

He's drowning in rough water

Could he save his lonely life?

Here It Comes The King Of Water

He has the Power to kill you

He died in rough water

He didn't save his lonely life (sul solo)

Here it comes the King of Water

He has the Power To kill you

Here it comes the King Of Water

He has the Power to kill you

 

Mr. Hotpeach was a sailor

He sailed the seven seas on his own

Empathy
 

Don't know what can hide your darkest past
Your hope can sublimate those days

And we will make the brightest view
Let those shields lie down on the floor
And breath what comes


Those tears are gone, and i will
Feed your soul with spoonful
Of this impalpable
Empathy
 

In new warm colours
You can see your days
Made by this impalpable 
Empathy
 

Don't matter how much time it takes
You read me like an open book
Made by words we've always dreamed
Made by our empathy

Some Warm Trails
 

Picture creatures passing by

On a flower in the sky

Calling people in the night

 

Velvet ashes paining me

Purple killer in the street

He goes on the edge

 

In the wood the red king's rise

Thinking he has a good wife

Sadness floating in her eyes

 

He is not the only one

To be loved and

He's so mad to think

That She's so happy

 

She says that she's feeling blue

Evil powers in the school

In a pocket of the sky

Eagles flying very high

Uuuuoouoooohhhh A-a-a-aaah
Some Warm Trails

 

She says daddy's gone so far

Left his house and his car

In a corner of the sky

He is flying very high

Uuuuoouoooohhh A-a-a-ah

Some Warm Trails

 

Around her

Around her

 

Picture creatures passing by

On a flower in the sky

Calling people in the night

 

Velvet ashes paining me

Purple killer in the street

He goes on the edge

 

She says that she's feeling blue

Evil powers in the school

In a pocket of the sky

Eagles flying very high

Uuuuoouoooohhhh A-a-a-aaah
Some Warm Trails

 

She says daddy's gone so far

Left his house and his car

In a corner of the sky

He is flying very high

Uuuuoouoooohhh A-a-a-ah

Some Warm Trails

 

Imaginary Journey

Here, under the rain

Colours are all the same

You're lost and you can't find your own

Way out

 

There is the red king

He knows all the ways

But he had lost his soul long time ago

 

Aaaaaah

You're lost and you can't find your own 

Way home
Aaaaaah

His soul is back to scare you, you won't go

 

You Look in his eyes
He looks in Your mind

Whatever you can see is back in time

 

There over the hills

You see the shining sun

And he disappear, he was not real

 

Aaaaaah

You feel a strange feeling, you understand

Aaaaaah

Now you're awake, and it was a dream

See Tomorrow's Shores
 

See tomorrow's shores, flying high

Above these dusty ruins, uuuuh

Let's leave behind our faults

I can hear the warmth of waves, uuuuh

 

How could you forget our bright past?

Feel the rain that cleaning your soul

Daylight soon will light our faces

If you wait with me

 

See the neew home embrace our lives

above those dusty ruins, uuuuh

Let's leave behind our faults

I can feel the warmth of waves, uuuuh

 

How could you forget our bright past?

Feel the sun that heat your soul

Daylight always light our faces

If you stay in this shores

 

Speak to me of summer, long winters longer than time can remember,

Setting up of other roads, travel on in old accustomed ways.

I still remember the talks by the water, the proud sons and daughters that,

In the knowledge of the land, spoke to me in sweet accustomed ways.
