Departing 04:40
Here we are, hiding in the mist We are playing dead for Remand the separation We’re only trying To stop and multiply the Seconds that separate us From the time when we will be Two worlds apart. Wait until you see me (here) Broken, smashed all on the floor Once, you know, you cross that river Move ahead, you can’t go back You spread your lips My tongue inside, You pull, you lay your head You fill my mouth With all your love But i fell nothing at all Here We are Again Playing with our life Trying To move Away from ourselves Blend Unite Becoming one soul Until We’ll be Tied forever Take my soul and divide it, You just take my soul and divide it Cut my love like a wire, Split my head and seal it with fire I Feel Safe again If You Stay with me We Are Conjugate We Can’t Be apart We will never try To fail again Take my soul and divide it, You just take my soul and divide it Cut my love like a wire, Split my head and seal it with fire Cut my love like a wire, Make me float… I need you again now

Weight 04:44
Awake, and yet I’m in tears This weight, the one that I feel on my Spine, here’s what it takes to be You, and it will last forever… Now that I bleed, now that I see The fire inside, the fire inside me Now that I bleed, now that I feel You’re still alive, growing your seed in me Hold me, heal me Come save me, Save me again. AS I LOOK AT THE PAST AND TRY TO KEEP ALL THE MEMORIES WE HAD I REALIZE I’VE LOST MU CH MORE T HAN S O MEO NE I CARE THE MOST BUT THE DA RKER THE SKY THE BRIG HTER THE STARS THE DEEPER THE GRIEF THE CLOSER IS GOD m BUT NO ONE EVER TOLD ME THAT GRIEF IS LIKE FEAR YOU’RE NOT AFRAID BUT THE FEELING IS NEAR LOOKING FOR SOMEONE ISN’T HERE ANYMORE AND KNOWING YOU’LL FACE THIS WORLD ALL ALONE BUT I TAKE THIS WEIGHT WITH ME NOT AS A BURDEN NOT AS A STRAIN I’LL TRY TO USE IT TO BRIGHTEN MY WAY In the haze, with my ghosts All I have is such a lie In the end, only you Carried all the weight for us IN SORROW WE MUST GO BUT NOT IN DESPAIR WE A LL LIVE WITH OUR LOSSES WE DON'T WANT TO, BUT WE CAN

The tower 06:38
IF I COULD FIND THE RIGHT WORDS THAT DEFINE THIS FRAIL HEART I WOULD STOP AND REALIZE THAT MY LIFE IS A MESS AND A FOOL I’VE BECOME BUT IT’S TIME TO EVOLVE I… will change, again If I… will face, the light I DON’T KNOW WHERE I WILL GO THIS WAY I JUST KNOW I WON’T RETURN AGAIN Convert, converge So far it’s what I’ve known So far it’s what I’ve done Rebuild, restore But you lie inside me You hide in side And if I lied, It would be the same? And if I died, Would you carry all the weight? ALL I AM IT’S HERE, IN MY HANDS I TRIED TO FACE IT I TRIED TO ESCAPE IT NOW THAT I’M HOPELESS JUST GIVE ME HOPE (PARTE NUOVA SU ARPEGGIO min5:30 circa) Up here, at the bottom, now I can see clear I’m falling, but in reverse, can’t help to revolve Air filling my lungs, can barely breath Just keep on falling, down in the deep (PARTE FINALE 1) I’m…feeling so safe but I’m dying, Feeling so slight while I’m flying, Into the air I will find… My peace of mind! I WILL TAKE THIS WEIGHT WITH ME EVEN IF I AM TIRED TO CARRY ON Hope! (Gone!), we carry on for this shit World! (Gore!), leaving a trace into a Stone! (Cold!), we’ll never know how much is Worth! (Lost!), crawling th e ground for little more

All you wanted, All you needed, Now you want let it go All the meanings, All the details, Now you’re watching them burn WHEN LIFE CHANGES BECOMING HARDER IT’S TIME TO CHANGE YOURSELF IF YOU WANT TO BECOME STRONGER DON’T WASTE YOUR TIME IN YOUR REGRETS YOU HAVE TO LOOK DEEP INSIDE YOU AN D YOU WILL FIND THE KEY TO UNDERSTAND ALL IS TO FORGIVE ALL TRY TO FIGURE OUT THIS ALL THE MEANINGS ALL THE DETAILS NOW YOU’RE WATCHING BURN BUT REMEMBER THERE’S A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MOVING ON AND LETTING GO (CHORUS – first) Back, in the shadow indeed [WRONG TURN!] Fade into nothing, you’ll see [TOO LATE!] Fight, will bring only defeat [YOUR BLAME!] (CHORUS – second) [POINT THE GUN] At the man [THAT YOU SEE] It’s yourself [LOOKING GLASS] There you are [YOUR OWN WORST] Enemy (SOFT PART) Behold, you see it’s over now Not your time, to run away Go on, pretending it’s all ok Let them all down in the ground CLOSE YOUR EYES THE TIME HAS COME NOW ALL YOU FRET BELONGS TO PAST IT’S ALL QUIET NOW A TRUTH YOU CAN UNDERSTAND (ENDING) Go, repeat the line, on it Don’t ever try to own it, ‘cause it will make you choke OVER AND OVER AGAIN YOU WILL FAIL YOU WILL LOSE BUT YOU WILL GET UP AGAIN YOU WILL FAIL YOU WILL LOSE OVER AND OVER AGAIN YOU WILL FAIL YOU WILL LOSE BUT YOU WILL GET UP AGAIN

Your Body is cold, under a white sky I see those black holes, Into your eyes Why… I feel I sway in the time? Still rollin’ away in the tide… I can’t close my eyes TIME PASSES BUT PAIN REMAINS WHAT I’VE SAW WHAT I’VE HEARD I WILL NEVER WEE P AGAIN ‘CAUSE MY ANGER FEEDS MY STR ENGTH THERE’S NO JUSTICE IT’S NOT FAIR I HAVE TO TAKE IT THE WAY IT IS BUT YOUR MEMORIES FILL MY HEAD WHAT YOU’VE FOUGHT ALL FOR NOTHING I WILL NEVER BE THE SAME Slow, deep, the spiral sucks me in Feeds delight of lust and greed Warm, feel safe in this womb, Inside your lie… I NEVER WANTED TO BE SOMEWHERE ELSE NOW DARKNESS ALL AROUND AND EMBRACE MYSELF Close, we were but, the things that I endured with you Froze it all, now we are distant stars I know…can’t cross the space between It’s sidereal, It’s sidereal, It’s inside your eyes, It’s inside mine I DIDN’T WANT TO GO NOT THIS TIME AGAIN I JUST WANTED TO SHARE THIS LAST TIME BY YOUR SIDE BUT ALL I HAVE SEEN IS ALL YOUR SUFFERING IT’S INSIDE YOUR EYES IT’S INSIDE MINE EVEN WITH YOUR STRENGTH A PAIN YOU CANNOT HIDE IT’S INSIDE YOUR EYES IT’S INSIDE MINE

This grace 04:50
LOOK AT YOUR FACE AND YOU WILL SEE MISTAKES AGAIN AND AGAIN FIGHT FOR YOUR GOAL OR LOSE YOURSELF IT’S BETTER THAN WAITING IN VAIN QUIT YOUR CONFORT FOLLOW YOUR DREAMS SPEND YOUR TIME TRYING TO CHANGE ‘CAUSE FOOL IT’S WHAT THEY’LL SAY WHEN THEY’LL CROSS YOUR WAY THEY MAKE FUN OF YOU AND THEN YOU CRY ALL BY YOUR SIDE NEAR TO SUICIDE WHEN YOU SEE THE LIGHT CLEARING UP YOUR SIGHT (chorus) Fool, what have you got? What have you known? ‘cause I’m not that… Cool, I’m on the edge, out on the verge I am not me WHAT IF I AM ALREADY GONE AND NOW YOU ARE ALL BY YOURSELF YOU HAVE TO TAKE BACK YOUR LIFE ‘CAUSE YOU HAVE MADE A WRONG TURN IT’S TIME TO PAY FOR YOUR MISTAKE YOU’VE REACHED THE POINT OF NO RETURN NO WAY BACK JUST MOVE AHEAD NO WAY BACK JUST MOVE AHEAD (Ending) My blame is something you can’t take away It feels like i’m dying again and again But I’m breathing, i’m living just for you

As you fall 06:59
Now that you fall you’re so kind I know who you are But what am I? The path that I’ve shown you Has become so bright I know you’re afraid But I won’t break Silence will remain, just forget this world Only tears left over, it’s all that you’ve ever done AS YOU SPEAK I TRY TO KEEP ALL THE TEARS FROM MY EYES I HAD NO FEAR I JUST DIDN’T WANT TO REPEAT A GOODBYE Silence will remain, just forget this world Only fears left over, it’s all that you’ve ever known NOW THAT YOU’RE HERE EVEN AS I HOLD YOU I AM LETTING YOU GO I COULDN’T DO MORE PEOPLE LIVING DEEPLY ARE NOT AFRAID OF THE END DON’T FEAR THE DEATH WE HAVE NEVER SAID GOODBYE. FOR ALL MY LIFE, I'LL WONDER WHY. BUT NOW YOU’RE GONE Lies…you’ve said… Won’t keep you safe… DEATH IS NOT THE END I WILL SEE YOU AGAIN SOMETHING RISE ABOVE OURSELF TRANSCENDS BODIES THROUGH THE SOUL CONSTANT MOTION OF US ALL I WILL TRY TO UNDER STAND I WILL BE ONE I WILL WAKE UP I WILL RISE AGAIN
8.
I was close, now i know it’s gone And closer would not be enough I’m sure you know this… I NEED TO BREAK OUT NOW FROM THIS MISERY WE ALL NEED A CHANCE TO REDEEM OURSELF WE ARE NOT RESOLVED WE MUST REACH THE END ALL WE NEED IS FIGHT YOUR FEARS ‘TIL THEY DISAPPEAR KEEP YOUR FLAME LIT TO RISE ABOVE TAKE YOUR MIND AS YOUR BEST STRENGHT ‘CAUSE ALL THAT RISE MUST CONVERGE (chorus) So, we’re changing and all is fading All we had is slowly falling away (falling away) (lento) Hold, just a bit, what it takes to feel warm ‘cause being born, like he said, it was wrong So, we will never meet again what’s begun now have to come to an end So, we will never smile again No one ever will pretend, to feel safe I’m sick and tired It’s death or lies Can we escape? Can we… Go reach the end of all Rip all the things off Wash this night away Until the end of us [L] ‘till the end of all [A] ‘till the end of us [L] ‘till the end of all [A] ‘till the end… ALL WE WANT IS TRY TO REACH THE END WAIT THE TIME WHEN WE’LL MEET AGAIN (end) Now we’re standing, Now we’re standing in line No one’s safe and No one escape the design All is lost now, all is lost in the time

about

[departures] is a journey that starts from deep and painful changes made to seek into sensations, feelings and consequences. Detachment, separation, bewilderment, but also hope for new awareness.
