Lyrics

WALK

Written By: Francesco Epiro

“I buried the emptiness stifling me behind a wall
but the dreams of Icaro look at the sun then they fall (down)
and if in the mirrors of your mind you can’t find your soul
over the ruins of your ego wake up and walk!

You run away from your weakness when I walk
You hide your pain in the darkness, in the Light I walk
Smoking crack, drinking hard, driving fast, I walk
Shooting your school friends with your dad’s gun, I walk

I walk through the days, I walk through the nights
I walk through the thousand shadows of my inner Light
I walk…so Walk!....

You shout your disappointment with the army in your back, I talk
You fight your enemies pumping hate in your veins, I Love
You tell one truth with thousand lies, I sing my song
You spread your ism through the fear, I just Breathe and Walk

I walk through the Desert, I walk through the Bombs
I walk through the tears vanishing in the flood
I walk through the days, I walk through the nights
I walk through the thousand shadows of my inner Light
I walk…so Walk!....

And if the Sun is a Pearl in your Heart
And if your dreams cross over the border
And if God is the Hope in your eyes
Never stop to shine.......

My childhood is burned by the illusions of a honest soul
Over the years, so much defeat...still I walk....

I Walk through the voices, an endless pray
I Walk along the silence cherish the first beat of the day
I walk through the days, I walk through the nights
I walk through the thousand shadows of my inner Light
I walk…so Walk!...., yes I Walk.......so Walk!”

ANIMAL

Written By: Francesco Epiro

“ Hey, this is my jungle now
different trees in the same road
Do you know what I am talking about?
It's time to follow your soul
They have shut us up among cement walls
they think they've won, 'cause they don't know
there's no wall we can't knock down
Wild, this is how I feel now
instinct, rage, freedom and Love
Forgive, Mr., my smile when you say, that soon we should fall
There's no gun, no bomb, no politician at all,
no Swiss bank that can stop power of Nature, power of GOD

Living like a wild animal, I'm gonna show you the heat of my Love
Living like a wild animal, I'm gonna show you the heat of my Love, baby

You have no way to go, no place called home
you think you are alone
You have lost your Faith, they've persuade you that
submitting to them is the only way
Open your heart, be yourself anyway
break the bonds and back to ride

Living like a wild animal, I'm gonna show you the heat of my Love
Living like a wild animal, I'm gonna show you the heat of my Love, baby

C'mon my baby, show me now baby, c'mon my baby, do it little baby

Hey, you've got a friend in me, we're rays of the same sun
I'm an emotional wave, a maverick, I'm the storm, I'm the sea
Don't care if they treat you as a mad, they are afraid
We are animals out of control, we're gonna shake this old, boring world

Living like a wild animal, I'm gonna show you the heat of my Love
Living like a wild animal, I'm gonna show you the heat of my Love, baby
...like a wild animal....”

ALWAYS ON THE ROAD

Written By: Francesco Epiro

“Lost in a sky of tender whispers with Gressan on my mind
through trees of joy and warm lights
the sky reflected in my eyes
A naked dance under the rain
an heart that lonely lonely goes
following the shadow of Livingstone
feeling the freedom in my blood

The scent of an ancient lake
wild storms before the Dawn
Mama let it shine on me
it’s a long run to my way home
No doubts can stop my thoughts
my soul is always on the road
but I’ll never walk alone, ‘cause God is always on my side….

…Come baby to sunshine, and fly with me in a sky of love
break now the chains of your life, free your heart and let it go…….
…Come baby to sunshine, open your mind and fly away
run with me through the waves of freedom, unchain your love and let it go….

A bridge over eternity to remember who you are
In everywhere the river flows my heart will lonely lonely go
Behind millions of words, the silence of your dreams
will show you the right way, so fuck it all and fly away

…Come baby to sunshine, and fly with me in a sky of love
break now the chains of your life, free your heart and let it go….
…Come baby to sunshine, open your mind and fly away
run with me through the waves of freedom, unchain your love and let it go….
…Come baby to sunshine, there is a light for you and me
leave your greyness for a rising rainbow, take your heart and let it free….
…Come baby to sunshine, the freedom has knocked at your door
free your mind, free your heart and soul, free your love and let it go….
…so let it go….Always on the road…so let it go….Always on the road…….”

VELVET DREAMS

Written By: Francesco Epiro

“I’m Standing on the cradle of your heart
Looking through your mirror
I’m floating through the silences of your heart
I wonder if you there

Sleep and leave all behind
Your Velvet Dreams…
Your Velvet Dreams….

All the words fading in your breath
Take my thoughts with you

Away….just like memories in the rain…
So Far away…….

The Wind & the Sand
Your Prints, My Chant
And you’re a Dolphin swimming through the waves of my Love

For you I’ll be the ocean
I’ll be the cure for your disease
I’ve always been the angel walking with you
In your Velvet Dreams…
Your Velvet Dreams….”

HURT ME

Written By: Francesco Epiro

“So here we are, dressed in dark
how could we go so far?
I even don’t remember the tension of my heart
Now here we are, will we stand?
We’ve lost the need to understand
We’ve lost the wish to fight till the end
Losing the direction, inured to repression
Tired of this fake search of perfection
I feel completely numb, a puppet who surrenders to all these lies
I need to fill this hole in my mind

C’mon hurt me, c’mon scare me, c’mon beat me
‘cause I need to feel
C’mon smash me, honey thrill me, try to kill me
‘cause I need to feel

Closed in the silence of this room, just give me something for the pain
Poison my soul to forget the remorse and the blame
Getting mad before a phone, I hear you cry, I watch the wall
Will my car run fast enough to hide myself at all?
I need to sleep, I can’t stop crying, I try to breathe, I need a knife
Don’t wake me up before the end of this long night
And all is black around me, a putrid torment is digging
in the balance of this long waiting
I need to get out, I need to burn, I cross the limit, there’s no return

C’mon hurt me, c’mon scare me, c’mon beat me
‘cause I need to feel
C’mon smash me, honey thrill me, try to kill me
‘cause I need to feel

C’mon hurt me, c’mon smash me, c’mon beat me, baby shock me
C’mon hurt me, baby thrill me, try to kill me...so get in the ring....
C’mon hurt me, c’mon shock me, c’mon beat me ‘cause I need to feel
C’mon smash me, baby thrill me, try to kill me ‘cause I need to feel
something…….anything…….something…….anything…….”
