Track Name: Voglio solo mezza luna
Now that everything is gone
I am finally expressing my wishes
You are thinking too much fast
I'm not the person that probably I seem to be


Maybe you should trust to me
oh no don't say that I'm hard to please
I will bring you with me
but don't worry, I don't want the whole moon


You must leave out your indifference
then it will become so different
if you want we'll go beyond the sky
not so far cause I want only half moon

Leave out indifference...


Now everything is gone
I can express my wishes
You are thinking too much fast
I'm not the person...
Track Name: Predatore
This time I'm looking for you, the hunting is begun
You'll never be in safe while I'm seeking you
You should begin to running, I'll give you some seconds
It's only the beginning, I'm the predator


Looking for you from the rooftop of the buildings
I see your face, you can try to hide yourself
I will always find your face into the crowd
and I will always hear your heart into the sounds


I will be on you as fast as light
I won't have mercy and you don't have a chance to escape
I will find you in every town
I have to kill you, this is the nature, I'm the predator
Track Name: Eclissi totale
When these people are here I know that sun have changed
Something was put in the road, it doesn't works

Now it is between them, I'm seeing a very big shell
Darkness is coming in town and it's not a band

People are stealing to me my only light
I have been walking for miles only to shine

Shadows are now all around, that's what we get on this side
But if I were in the mean I would be immersed in light
Track Name: Non puoi farlo
Smile outside, yes you can do it
Smile inside, no no you can't do that
Run away and scream, no no you can't do that
Jump off from the bridge, no no you can't do that

Why the others always have all they want ?
Why the sun is never shining on me ?
Purple rain is falling down on my head


See my skin, no no you can't do that
Take my heart, no no you can't do that
Have a sunny day, no no you can't do that
Get in bed relaxed, no no you can't do that

Why the others always have all they want ?
Why the sun is never shining on me ?
Purple rain is falling down on my head


Smile outside, yes you can do it
Smile inside, no no you can't do that
Run away and scream, no no you can't do that
Jump off from the bridge...
Track Name: Caduta libera
Leave out your fears
show your valor
Don't change idea
now it's too late

Take a deep breath
close your eyes
Don't look down
jump from the helicopter


Watch the other people falling from the sky
All you have to do is to jump above the clouds


You are not like a blackbird
you are just an heavyweight
Track Name: Incontro ravvicinato del terzo tipo
The story started around midnight
I was playing not my guitar
when a sound called me downstairs
a small spaceship was landed there

Hey man tell me: who you are?
where are you from and how do you feel?
With all the planets that of sure you know
this is not a good place to live


Then he told me: “Please to meet you, I am here to save your planet”
So I said: “You are too late, you could get up your ass before !!”

Hey man tell me: who you are?
where are you from and how do you feel?
With all the planets that of sure you know
this is not a good place to live


Many problems here
not a good idea
maybe you was near
coming on the earth

Many troubles here
maybe you was near
coming on the earth
Track Name: Albionics
New York is not our city
we want to be someone
in next future maybe we'll go there
and we'll become a bigger band

Playing into the desert
people will come for us
to enjoy electro-acoustic sound
in Las Vegas we will be the stars

Albionics, it's our nature
Albionics, the thing we are
Albionics, this is our body
Albionic it's our immortal soul
Track Name: Pretending to be British
Keep on walking under the sea
just to reach the promise land
British people they can't see
how much lucky they are

You can debate about our style
our syntax is not fair
I am sorry, realize
this way we write
this way we write now


We are just pretending
to be like a British
we can stay in London
this is not our city


We are just pretending
to be like a British
we can go to Liverpool
this is not our city
Track Name: Jim
Are you listening to me?
I think you don’t want to hear this
I’ve been talking for a while
now I’m feeling not so quiet

You are right when you say that
many times I talk too much
but this time is not like that
I will end before you bet


We are good for nothing and capable of everything
We are good for nothing and capable of everything
Track Name: Nuotando contro le onde
I am seeing only blue around
and the sounds are disappearing
I am feeling myself away and alone
and a wave is now on me

and it's cold
I'm swimming against the waves
swimming against the waves
it's hard

This is a battle with the nature
I really think that I can win

Maybe the wind will throw me out of here
Maybe I’ll be drowned at morning end


But I'm sure that I can win
yes I'm sure that I can win
Track Name: Pendolare (demo 2011)
Fermo con gli occhi chiusi in mezzo alla campagna
bloccato su questo pezzo di ferraglia
Vorrei potermi liberare
da questa trappola infernale

I've got the vision of me out of here
trying to fly in the sky
I need to be out of this metal trap
maybe this will be my coffin yeah


Ma so che prima o poi finirà la sua corsa
e mi libererà dalla sua morsa
Vorrei soltanto volare via
librarmi sopra la ferrovia

I've got the vision of me out of here
trying to fly in the sky
I need to be out of this metal trap
maybe this will be my coffin yeah


Qui non si va mai avanti
siam come ostaggi paganti

Si può soltanto sperare
se vivi da pendolare
