UNEPASSANTE: NO DRAMA

Oggi faccio un “out topic” rispetto al target del sito, pubblico i testi del gruppo UNEPASSANTE dell’ultimo album NO DRAMA uscito il 13/04/2013.

I testi erano sul loro sito, segregati in un PDF zippato… e quindi non rintracciabili immediatamente.

Su Spotify sono rintracciabili a questo link: http://open.spotify.com/album/0aF38uKQAmo90bV1O1chuy#__sid=0

Se avete voglia dato uno sguardo anche al bellissimo video

UTTERLY WRONG

Oh Spanish taxi driver
take me to the other side of town
where we won’t be found
We’ll overtake the Century
its dreadful irony
and run
We’ll give up the anatomy of feeling
the awareness of living
and float
And some day we’ll find a way
You know that we were utterly wrong

You know that we were utterly wrong

Leave that frantic smile behind
Surrender to the void
Forget the autopsy of time
Surrender to the void

Please, my driver
take me to the other side of town
where we won’t be found
We’ll overtake the Century
its dreadful irony
and run

Run

We were utterly wrong

Leave that frantic smile behind
Surrender to the void
Forget the autopsy of time
Surrender to the void

We were utterly wrong
We were wrong.

 

 SEESAW

Come take a ride on my ever-swinging seesaw
It’s painted so bright it will leave you eyelidless
Hold yourself tight through the changing of the
seasons
Come take a ride!

October hit me like a thunder
November put me down
December came to lay the darkest days
January cuddled me as I whimpered like a dog
February pulled my head, put me back on my feet again
Hold yourself tight: I’m on a roll until July
So come take a ride!

Come take a ride!
Come take a ride!
Come take a ride!
Come take a ride!
Take a ride

Come take a ride on my ever-swinging seesaw
It’s painted so bright it will leave you eyelidless
Hold yourself tight through the changing of the
seasons
Come take a ride!

Springtime is for maniacs
Springtime is for maniacs
Springtime is for maniacs
Springtime is for maniacs
Maniacs.

 

VALENTINE’S, OR THE END

All the beginnings and all the ends
contract collide and land
Upon my chest the signs of the crash
design a perfect snowflake
Ask me now how does it feel
to hold time, the essence of time in a hand
I stare as it melts with divine slowness
pervading my soul once again

Leftover number 1 is one rusting laundry token
Leftover number 2 is one black sock on the stairway

It’s the universe carousel spinning around
reconciling the body and mind

Grab my foot and drag me now
I wanna give up, give up now
Chop my limbs in small pieces
I wanna feed your horses
Grab my foot and drag me around town
I wanna give up, give it all up now

I see it coming, the end
The end is coming now
Leftover number 1 is one rusting laundry coin
Leftover number 2 is one black sock on the stairway

It’s the universe carousel spinning around
reconciling body and mind

Picture yourself with someone forever
in love.

 

XMAN

Barn owl, barn owl
landed in the courtyard
teach me how to see in pitch dark
For when I blackout
I wish I could just find a way out
I wish that I could look askance

Gain perspective, focus and breathe
Don’t bask in the limbo
Distance will make it all small and neat

Little mouse, little mouse
sneaking up on us so fast
teach me how to dodge all the crap
For when I blackout
I fall into the usual traps
I cannot feel my legs, I’m paralised

Gain perspective, focus and breathe
Don’t bask in the limbo
Distance will make it all small and neat

I wish I was an X-man, I wish I had a mission
But all I have to win is my own mind
The brilliance of my enemy lies in anticipation
If anyone can hear me help me out

Flying bug, flying bug
Don’t know your name, but I like you a lot
teach me how to sting and never get caught
For when I blackout
I wish at least I could react
I wish that I could stand and take up arms

Gain perspective, focus and breathe
Don’t bask in the limbo
Distance will make it all small and neat

I wish I was an X-man, I wish I had a mission
But mania is all I have to hold back
The brilliance of my enemy lies in multiplication
They stick onto receptors and neural bonds
To heal my insanity there ain’t no superpower
If anyone can hear me help me out.

 

 

LULLABY

(THE AIR WE BREATHE)

The air we breathe is warm and holy
it blows from mouth to mouth
And if a nut should fall on us
right now would you marry me?
Fireworks were hailing loud
we couldn’t hear a sound

Sleep now —- my baby, sleep now — my baby
I’ll wake you up from the nightmares

Wrapped in your robe, lying on your chest
the chords slip on my breast.

 

WOODWORMS

Piercing headache won’t leave me alone
And it’s been so long
I can’t count the hours of torture I’ve undergone
A woodworm digging in my skull
A chronic nail, an unfixable bug
It crucifies me day and night
It’s a brand new form of hypochondria

Searching for comfort on the clouds
Yet every time I fall
this body weighs ten tons more

Sleeping in the shower I’ll wash the thorns away
Wrapped in sheets of clay
I’ll fight back panic attacks and suffocation
To hear your tranquil breath is being skinned to death
You don’t seem to get that thoughts can hurt

Searching for comfort on the clouds
Yet every time I fall
this body weighs ten tons more.

 

WONDERFUL ROBOTS

Don’t cry my dear, I’m right here
Hold my hand, have no fear
If I could trade my blood for your peace of mind
You know I would

We were promised the world and we’ll have it all

Step back, climb up
Watch them crawl on the ground
We’re sick pariahs
We can never be harmed

Now stand up, stop freaking out
Chew the pain and spit it all out
We are wonderful robots
We can never be harmed

You are safe from harm.

 

EXTINCTION

The world won’t end in a sudden burst
No god will come down to tell us off
There’ll be no flames nor thunderbolts
Extinction will take it slow

Extinction will take it slow

Dance with me ‘till the end of time
I’ll take the icicles from your spine
A thousand birds will be raining down on us
Photosyntethic paralysis
The freezing of all meaning
Dance with me ‘till there won’t be no sound anymore

Come on roll your eyes and sway

Extinction will take it slow.

 

WAR & PEACE

Watch the sun set beyond the island
In its magenta vest
Dripping blo-od on the sea surface
Then disappearing fast

Suddenly yet slowly
A distant noise rises up
Mumbling, bellowing
It covers all the land.

 

 

OH MY MONSTER

Eternity is carried by the wind, it lays upon all things
I can fool myself I am part of it for a week
The way the sun chases the clouds is obvious, and still
profound
I’m grateful as I – I owe it all to you.

All my cunning words I left them on the shore to dry
I’ve got no shelter here for my poor fears to hide
Will I have trouble one day remembering you face?
I’ll question the sea, I’ll ask the stars:
How can I make this love last?

And oh my monster, I swear I’ll do my best
I’ll gather the forces of the universe
I won’t let the Century put a lead on me
Let real life begin

If I piled up all the beds I slept in
I guess I’d reach the sky or at least the highest of these
hills
And if I lined up all the roads I’ve travelled on
Would that be enough to follow you wherever you go?

A million houses and still I have no home
For only a family can shield you from the cold
But all my troubles fade away as I recall your face
I’ll question the sea, I’ll ask the stars:
How will I make this love last?

And oh my monster, I swear I’ll do my best
I’ll gather the forces of the universe
I won’t let the Century put a lead on me
Let real life begin
