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.

Track Name: Departing
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
Track Name: Weight
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
Track Name: The tower
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
Track Name: Return to nowhere
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
Track Name: Distant stars
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
Track Name: This grace
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
Track Name: As you fall
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
Track Name: ...and that would be the end of us
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
