about

This track represent the entire album concept through the allegory of the Major Arcana card called “The Tower”; a sudden changing that can be seen in a good way or in a very bad way, depending on which side the card is shown (a new beginning / an end).

lyrics

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
