01. The Dawning

Music by The Foreshadowing
Lyrics by Francesco Sosto
Beyond the walls the world has swallowed its revenge,
We're safe at dark and fate has given us a chance.
We're sleeping for now, who knows if we'll wake up at dawn
And I've seen with my eyes the sorrow of who wore a crown of thorns.

The world explodes and shows the tragedy of fools
Who chose the war and turned to ashes and ruins
No might or command to obey in the poisoned land
And I keep death inside, just sleeping with corpses at night.
At night...

Before the dawn we'll cross the line
We're living to be free, behold an ancient time
The soldier now, he stands around
And all that has been written on the path has some meaning.

Unchained and bold we walk towards the sun
We're sleeping for now, who knows if we'll wake up at dawn
Down there we'll set the time and find a place, for it's too late.

No might or command to obey in the poisoned land
We're sleeping for now, who knows if we'll wake up at dawn


02. Outsiders

Music by The Foreshadowing
Lyrics by Francesco Sosto
The only ones that I remember, the outsiders
They called me on a winter day
And told me they just had been wandering, the outsiders
And came in for a change.

Once we had the right
To spend the days and fight
Showing photographs, now
We will need another train.

Once we were the night
And watched in black and white
Showing hurricanes, now
We will creep across the street.

And all of our thoughts in the water, the outsiders
Are lost in the ignorance
And all the seasons always changing, for the outsiders
It all remains unchanged.

Once we had the right
To spend the days and fight
Showing photographs, now
We will need another train.

Once we were the night
And watched in black and white
Showing hurricanes, now
We will creep across the street.


03. Oionos

Music by The Foreshadowing
Lyrics by Marco Benevento & Francesco Sosto
Here we hear over our silence
"Remember, if you sleep, nightmares will end"
Pray for me, you'll be remembered
For what you've been revealed all has been done.

Erase your shadows, the black is there
A storm of vultures coming closer for the end
Remind your sorrow back through the light
The night that follows is our promise to be in the right.

Down the hill, over the barren land
I hear you call my name begging for death.

Erase your shadows, the black is there
A storm of vultures coming closer for the end
Remind your sorrow back through the light
The night that follows is our promise to be in the right.

Beyond the world, shattering our silence
And scattering the vultures that revealed
The morning tide, the secure hide for the sleepers
And drifting in the air we'll meet the great warlord.


04. Fallen Reign

Music by The Foreshadowing
Lyrics by Francesco Sosto
"One day you'll see the light",
The old man said to me.
In a faceless life,
Light of hypocrisy.

I'll see the darkness brighter,
Life will not succeed my memories
And in the mortal past
I've seen a holocaust.

Fallen reign in the distance
Fallen reign in your eyes
We're never satisfied
And the world disappeared.

What's the world with this light
That you guarantee?
What remains of this life,
Is it life?

And I remember
A crowd of voices out of the range
And stranger faces
With no expressions to exchange.

The pool of silver
Prepared us to some promised land
And deep the water
The light brought us farther.

Strangled land
We'll never stop and wondering why
Sacred fire
You'll never stop to burn.

What's the world with this light
That you guarantee?
What remains of this life,
Is it life?

Fallen reign in the distance
Fallen reign in your eyes

Instrumental


06. Lost Humanity

Music by The Foreshadowing
Lyrics by Marco Benevento
I'll be back at sunrise even farther tonight
Waiting for them to put up a fight.
I hope I won't be afraid when they will come forward
Someone will hide, someone will not.

Once again I am waiting here for them
Hoping, showing them humanity that once they were
Everyday I wait, everyday I live
To meet another man.

I've never felt so alone, it would be enough for one
Winning a war to convert a soul.

Once again I am waiting here for them
Once again to show humanity that once they were.
Every day I pray, I want to be for them
Just another man.

I do not have mercy on me
I do not want to admit
I should swallow all of this hate
And become the very prey.

Once again I am here, in front of them,
Trying to show the enemy all I am is just a man
Everyday I wait, everyday I live,
To meet another friend or meet another enemy.

Once again I wait, once again I see
The failure in their hunger, in their blood, over my hopes.
Every day I'm wrong, everyday I get,
Just another dead.


07. Survivors Sleep

Music by The Foreshadowing
Lyrics by Francesco Sosto
Here we are soldiers of fortune and glory
Saw the earth breaking in two
Wondering what could we get from this half life
Will we damn the days we set in our way?

Our souls of unbelievers
Will call the rage of Christ
Disturb survivors' sleep
And the desert world will cry.

Here we are walking the red and grey district
Saw a man sewing his mouth.
We were preached to find some comfort in waiting
And the common man is able to shout.

The secrets of unholy
Will prevent us from praying
Survivors for the glory
Here where the orphans play.

Our souls of unbelievers
Will call the rage of Christ
Disturb survivors' sleep
And the entire world will cry.

The secrets of unholy
Will prevent us from praying
Survivors for the glory
Here where the orphans play.


08. Chant Of Widows

Music by The Foreshadowing
Lyrics by Francesco Sosto
Burning sun, if you hear me
Burn those roses in the sand
They can sing their litany
They can suffer in my tears.

Land of communion, burn inside.

Rushing blood into my eyes
Chant of widows on the streets
Warriors coming right on their way
But no enemies to fight.

Land of confusion, cast me aside.

Out in the garden, sleeping, pleading
Behind the doorway, begging, starving
Around the corner mourners, murders
We're just survivors in the city.

Thoughts of death in words and knives
Chant of widows in my mind
They can sing my revenge
And evoke the lord of fire.

Land of communion, burn inside.
Land of confusion, cast me aside.


09. Hope She's In The Water

Music by The Foreshadowing
Lyrics by Francesco Sosto
My hope.
She's in the water.
I swear I saw at night when she left me.
My hope.
I read her lines, then left me drown as guilty.
My hope.
And through the window spied on me.
My hope.
My hope...

And she possessed me, she laid down the law.
I worked, she refused me.
I swear, the more I worked, the more I felt she'd leave me.
My hope.
I've thrown my mind and future.
Makes me worry, I know.
Now please, just let me mesmerize the world...

I don't know what time will be when light will break the silence
I just know that sound is near when knives will stab our hearts.
I don't know my dynasty and fear will keep the distance
I just know my tragedy but I'm a man of war.


10. Russians

[Sting cover]

In Europe and in America
There's a growing feeling of hysteria
Conditioned to respond to all the threats
In the rhetorical speeches of the Soviets.

Mister Krushchev says, "We will bury you!".
I don't subscribe to this point of view.
It'd be such an ignorant thing to do
If the Russians love their children too.

How can I save my little boy
From Oppenheimer's deadly toy?
There is no monopoly on common sense
On either side of the political fence.

We share the same biology
Regardless of ideology.
Believe me when I say to you
I hope the Russians love their children too.

There is no historical precedent
To put the words in the mouth of the president.
There's no such thing as a winnable war
It's a lie we don't believe anymore.

Mister Reagan says, "We will protect you".
I don't subscribe to this point of view.
Believe me when I say to you
I hope the Russians love their children too.

We share the same biology
Regardless of ideology
But what might save us, me and you,
Is if the Russians love their children too.
