01. The Slide

Music by Kingcrow
Lyrics by Diego Cafolla & Mauro Gelsomini
Invisible
A figure lying unseen
On those eternal waves
The saddest death
The distance filling me with fear
The sea cliff being the lonely watcher of the fall
The only death
That could get rid of all my pain
Time has come to turn off all the lights

02. Timeshift Box

Music by Kingcrow
Instrumental

03. Islands

Music by Kingcrow
Lyrics by Diego Cafolla & Mauro Gelsomini
Closed in a dark embrace
We'll act against adversity
Blurting our minds and souls
The fate allowed to lay aside

Ashes of broken limbs
Remain from our cinder
Rest in the fireplace before
The sight of awareness
(Strained)

Down in the deep
Of a dying heart's believer
Something that crawls
And rise up again
When the lambs cry
It's time for the reason
Glimmers of hope
That only outstand

Scenes from a remote past
Can live down the corner
Turning the page of life somehow
Can be your strength of will
Strength

Down in the deep
Of a dying heart's believer
Something that crawls
And rise up again
When the lambs cry
It's time for the reason
Glimmers of hope
That only outstand

Down in the deep
Of a dying heart's believer
Something that crawls
And rise up again
When the lambs cry
It's time for the reason
Glimmers of hope
That only outstand

04. The Great Silence

Music by Kingcrow
Lyrics by Diego Cafolla & Mauro Gelsomini
On towards things
Here and there
Threats are posing
Everywhere

How can each one
Face the blow?
Maybe, somehow
You don't know

Hide, behind a veil of still
So the cause can't be revealed
Is a defense or a shroud
If won't never cry aloud?
Now moreover of your hush
Even tears are coldly brushed

05. Lullaby for an Innocent

Music by Kingcrow
Lyrics by Ivan Nastasi & Mauro Gelsomini
Lay down and sleep
Peaceful and quiet
Look upon you
There's someone who cares
Lights on the wall
Dispel the shades
So close your eyes
Let the dream go

Here on your bed
Singing a song
Follow my rhymes
They'll let you dream

I'm next to you
(Lay down and sleep)
(Peaceful and quiet)
Watching you smiling
(Look upon you)
And nuzzling up to me
(There's someone who cares)
I tuck you in
(Lights on the wall)
The candle is burning out
(Dispel the shades)
(So close your eyes)
Can you hear me breathe?
(Let the dream go)
(Hoo-ooh)
(Hoo-ooh)

"Goodnight"

Silently
All your toys
Lie around on the floor
Dancing dolls
Have their rest
Near the half-opened door
Lullaby
As sunflowers
Your sweet smile will bloom
Close your eyes
Dreams are hidden
In this silent night

06. Evasion

Music by Kingcrow
Lyrics by Diego Cafolla & Mauro Gelsomini
When you are stuck inside
By your own decision
When you're closest again
To a dead-end street
Well, the time has arrived
For abrupt occasions
Can you still see a chance
As it will appear?

It discloses sometimes
With a darkened shining
Maybe time and again
You will oversleep
And a breath gaping now
As you've been proceeding
When it's late to evade
From a certain slip

"Take a look inside your vision
One mission, one aim
Lift filters from your eyes
Illusion are shattered by your own will"

Oh

Yes, I'm wondering why an escape
Can seduce a simple occasion
In a moment when I hesitate
Gives the way for mental evasion

Yes, I'm wondering why an escape
Can seduce a simple occasion
In a moment when I hesitate
Gives the way for mental evasion

Yes, I'm wondering why an escape
Can seduce a simple occasion
In a moment when I hesitate
Gives the way for mental evasion

Yes, I'm wondering why an escape
Can seduce a simple occasion
In a moment when I hesitate
Gives the way for mental evasion

Yes, I'm wondering why an escape
Can seduce a simple occasion
In a moment when I hesitate
(Yes, I'm wondering)
Gives the way for mental evasion

07. Numb (Incipit, Climax & Coda)

Music by Kingcrow
Lyrics by Diego Cafolla & Mauro Gelsomini
An evil passion
Remaining hidden
Until a runaway spark
Begins the action
A chain reaction
Unleashes what lies beyond

(Oh-oh, ah-ah, oh-oh)

A growing cancer
That slowly increases
Is greedily eating inside
A scary truth
That's creeping hidden
Sure you'd be curious to know?

Drive is rising
As we get closer
Dark desire
Behind sweetheart

Longing for you
I'm eager, I'm impatient
Can't wait to see your smile
Your silhouette again
Longing for you
I'm eager, I'm impatient
Can't wait to see your cry
Your silhouette in pain

Feel my hugs, so intense and strong
Cry in low voice if I hold too much
Overlie your emotions now
Please forgive me if I roughly act

Take me as I am
And let yourself go deep

Longing for you
I'm eager, I'm impatient
Can't wait to see your cry
Your silhouette in pain

Drift away
Feel too much
While we were feeding the flesh
You and I
Right below the surface
While we were feeding the flesh

Can't hear the sound
Won't see the scars
Your pillow softens all the blows
Can't hear the sound
Won't feel the tears
As they are drawn on our sheets

Can't hear the sound
Won't see the scars
Your pillow softens all the blows
Can't hear the sound
Won't feel the tears
As they are drawn on our sheets

Can't hear the sound

08. Washing Out Memories

Music by Kingcrow
Lyrics by Diego Cafolla & Mauro Gelsomini
Resting on my laurels
One more time of calmness and I'll wake
Second thoughts keep waiting
Now my will is called to prevail

Take up all my duties
Put aside a while by your fancy
I can't skirt them again
This should be the end of the game

Something's claiming wildly its right of way

Thanks for all the days and nights
Your vanilla kisses still rolling
Cover mind and spirit
Hiding the outer side as a cream

Washing out the memories
To forgive your face and your taste
I know it can be painful
So I'll make-believe I don't care

Just another mark into my brain

Though it's not time to turn the page
Love can burn, burn, burn
Till the heart
Is not too tired to keep it safe
Maybe I'll cry, cry, cry
Washing out memories

Though it's not time to turn the page
Love can burn, burn, burn
Till the heart
Is not too tired to keep it safe
Maybe I'll cry, cry, cry
Till the heart
Is not too tired to keep it safe
Maybe I'll cry, cry, cry
Washing out memories

09. A New Life

Music by Kingcrow
Lyrics by Ivan Nastasi
The sun is rising up today
I can see it through the leaden sky
I can feel a warm embrace
That fills my aching soul
Now life is calling you
Listen to these magic sounds
I'm no longer alone
I'll never be afraid again

You're coming to life
My love will soon fill your heart
Holding you in my arms
Waiting for your cry
My whole life is you
Oh-oh-oh

10. Lovocaine

Music by Kingcrow
Lyrics by Diego Cafolla
A growing understanding
Summers fade into the darkest fall
My brief thoughtless youth
Slowly walked off

Like the Cotard's syndrome
Beauty of life spilled out of me
After all those years
So faithful to you

A growing understanding
Summers fade into the darkest fall
My brief thoughtless youth
Slowly walked off, no more regrets

I'm drowning in this pain

How did this happen?
I mean, life seems to be so wrong
Which is the meaning
When you feel all hope is gone?
(Hope is gone)
How did this happen?
You turned your gaze away from me
That howling silence
That still echoes in my head
(Echoes in my head)

Falling behind the events' horizon
Of the black hole that replaced my painful heart
There is no way to retrace my footsteps
I feel so empty inside, anesthetized

Falling behind the events' horizon
Of the black hole that replaced my painful heart
There is no way to retrace my footsteps
I feel so empty inside, anesthetized

A growing understanding
Summers fade into the darkest fall
My brief thoughtless youth
Slowly walked off, no more regrets

11. Fading Out Pt. III

Music by Kingcrow
Lyrics by Diego Cafolla
I remember
That winter was so cold
Holding my breath while
I was walking down the stairs

Oh, that was so strange

His hands were moving
Under her young teen clothes
I could feel the smell
Of true profanity

Oh, that was so insane

(Scars on me)

Out of the understanding
One soul in misery
Her eyes aglow with tear drops
The face of fear itself

(Scars)
(Screams)
(My world turned gray)
(Used)
(A big mistake)
(Pain)
(Never again)
(Lust)
(Will be his grave)

He has sold her dreams for his desire
But desire has turned his own life to rust
Withered heart and cold, tormented eyes
Is this the love that should make us more thick?

He has sold her dreams for his desire
(He was always)
But desire has turned his own life to rust
(Much less human)
Withered heart and cold, tormented eyes
(Than we wished for)
Is this the love that should make us more thick?
(He will be no more)

12. Phlegethon

Music by Kingcrow
Lyrics by Diego Cafolla & Mauro Gelsomini
"Ah, again, a fall
For the one who betrays
My dear
Ah"

Praying and mourning
The story is not going to change
The grand final
The floodlights have risen again
(Again)

Soaring in silence
Floating in fire
Soaring in silence
Floating in fire
(Oh)

Now go back and think of
All our days of joy
Smiles that were to leave to a silent fall

Bringing again to surface
What you did forget
What caused all your nightly dreams to fail

And my hands desired
To hush up the boasts
Of who cherished as he said:
"A shameful teaching
I am charged to correct, father"

Alone
There he stands
Eyes cast down
On the water
She lays
Full of grace
On those waves
Eyes wide open

Alone
There he stands
Eyes cast down
On the water
She lays
Full of grace
On those waves
Eyes wide open

Seems like yesterday
(Alone)
(There he stands)
(Eyes cast down)
(On the water)
(She lays)
(Full of grace)
Us and them
(On those waves)
(Eyes wide open)
But life draws our paths
(Alone)
(There he stands)
(Eyes cast down)
(On the water)
(She lays)
(Full of grace)
Some we would not choose
(On those waves)
(Eyes wide open)

Blind and greedy
Oh, wrath made me insane
Spurs me onward
In my endless pain
Some emotions
Can be deeply scary
But we cannot
Shut them up, that voice

If I can't be
The one who possess
No one else will
Ever be with her

Alone
There he stands
Eyes cast down
On the water
She lays
Full of grace
On those waves
Eyes wide open

Alone
There he stands
Eyes cast down
On the water
She lays
Full of grace
On those waves
Eyes wide open

Seems like yesterday
(Alone)
(There he stands)
(Eyes cast down)
(On the water)
(She lays)
(Full of grace)
Us and them
(On those waves)
(Eyes wide open)
But life draws our paths
(Alone)
(There he stands)
(Eyes cast down)
(On the water)
(She lays)
(Full of grace)
Some we would not choose
(On those waves)
(Eyes wide open)

Soaring in silence
Floating in fire
Soaring in silence
Floating in fire
Soaring in silence
Floating in fire
Soaring in silence
Floating in fire
Soaring in silence
Floating in fire
