Fair White Lies
Info
Year: 2014
Album: CMYK - EP#4 Key Black (2014)
Language: English
Meaning
Love, in terms of high affection and care, justifies sometimes the use of lies. Basically, if you are scared of telling the “rude” and “raw” truth, fair lies could help you to avoid slashing a beloved person’s sensitivity.
Obviously it depends on the persons and on the subjects, but in general the “truth” means “care”. You can’t crush or hurt anybody with the truth. In case of delicate personality and perceiving skill the truth can stimulate an accepting phase, or a great respect, in case of a strong personality.
But this is rarely followed. Because telling the truth is a speaker’s fear, most of the time, and not a listener’s fear. Moreover there is also a “funny” pride to take care of someone beloved, by omitting true facts or lying for them.
A stranger, that surely does not care about you or your fate, would have no problems telling you the truth, in comparison to a beloved person.
I love the truth, whatever it is. And, in this song, I beg a stranger, whoever he is, to help me live this life with truth not influenced by love and affection. The raw and the cruel truth.
The paradox is completed if I think that a stranger who has no regrets and limits by telling you the truth would show and realize one of the most important aspects of true love.
Lyrics
I don’t know when
I had a chance to talk with you before
And I don’t know why
It’s so easy to trust in your plain and fair words more
Than the sweet things said by love
Than the suppositories given behind the scenes

Friends and kin
I’ve nothing to blame for
and nothing to claim against their fair belief
That the aid I need
Is morphine to veil aches quelling
Telling smooth lies in lieu of the truth
I deserve to see

I rely on your unconsciousness
I trust in your indifference
Because love sometimes pretends to shield
From pain by using fair white lies
An innocent lie
Said to enlighten darkness untold
It is meant to be a cure
A way to smooth a biting fact or the coarse truth
What I need is the bitter taste
What I deserve now is someone beyond the scenes

Friends and kin
I’ve nothing to blame for
and nothing to claim against their fair belief
That the aid I need
Is morphine to veil aches quelling
Telling smooth lies in lieu of the truth
I need to face

I rely on your unconsciousness
I trust in your indifference
Because love sometimes pretends to shield
From pain by using sweet and fair white lies
Oh stranger I, oh stranger
I rely on you to know if I should cry, if I should cry
Then I trust in you to face my life and chase the time
When I’ll be able to build myself
And deny that shell
Where I feel so safe by love
Instead of being afraid of my own fair white lies

Forever Like Asleep
Info
Year: 2013
Album: CMYK - EP#1 Cyan (2014)
Language: English
Meaning
Sometimes I wonder what will happen to us after death.
If I were a catholic, probably I would find the answer in the Bible and in the Faith.
Or, if I were a invincible Mechanism disciple, I would find the answer in the nothing's echoes or in the cruel but democratic Chaos.
I wish or I really love to think that, when I die, my last dream remains in my mind, as a picture frozen for eternity… Oh, this should be a really nice paradise… depending on the dream, obviously! It’s understood it must be a nice one!
So… Forever into a dream. Forever like asleep. Wow…
At the beginning, when this idea touched my mind, I thought that I would love this kind of afterlife.
So I started writing this song
But when i reached the time to write the chorus, I was no longer so enthusiastic about my original idea… because a dream is a mixture of memories and fantasies, fears and regrets. Surely, The End of our life story it is certainly cruel, but enhances the value of life, the real life.
So, I would prefer to live a real moment for a minute, than a dream for eternity. And, if you knew that your dreams will be your afterlife paradise, what kind of value you would give to your life? And what kind of value shall be given to love?
Lyrics
Mmm... Last night i was a King
Crimson velvet gold and green
The jester's trying to make me laugh
By kidding my heart so lonely and weak
Too deep into my wars to seek my Queen

I’ve got to dream
To enjoy my life for real
Like once when I was in prison
Able to escape and once outside on my knees
Surprised to feel
How much the smell of freedom can be sweet

I wonder if when my life one day will end
and everything will turn to nothing
I will keep on living within my dreams
Forever like asleep

Your smile will shine in a timeless night
You’ll be close to me and we’ll live
Forever like asleep
You’ll never die enjoying this life
Afraid of nothing forever like a dream
Although our Lord denied the joy for life
An Eternal dream should be a right prize
to pay back his fun to leave us
Limping and gasping until our last throw of die
Just leave me, please just leave me my last wish

I wonder if when this world one day will end
and everything will turn to nothing
I will keep on dreaming to be in love with you
Forever like asleep

Your smile will shine in a timeless night
You’ll be close to me and we’ll live
Forever like asleep
You’ll never die enjoying this lie
Afraid of nothing forever like unreal
‘Cause this won’t light
As much as every moment we’ll share for real
Every single fear we’ll face and win
If you’ll love me and steal my soul
I swear I’ll give you my heart
Till death do us part
I wonder if when this world one day will end
and everything will turn to nothing
I will keep on dreaming to be in love with you
Forever like asleep

Your smile will shine in a timeless night
You’ll be close to me and well live
Forever like asleep

You’ll never die enjoying this lie
Afraid of nothing forever like unreal
‘Cause this won’t light
As much as every moment we’ll share for real
Every single fear we’ll face and win
If you’ll love me and steal my soul
I swear I’ll give you my heart
Oh i swear I’ll give you my heart
Till death do us part

Info
Year: 2005
Album: CMYK - EP#4 Key Black (2014)
Language: English
Meaning
In 2005 I made a road trip through California, Arizona and Nevada, from SanFra to grand Canyon and back to SanFra passing through San Diego and LA. In LA I visited Hollywood. Once there, I met the sign “Hollywood Boulevard”, and the movie “Pretty Woman” came into my mind when everything started, with Richard Gere asking Julia Roberts for directions. It was a movie I had seen some weeks earlier. During that visit, I wondered if such a story could be possible in the real world.
So I started writing this song without knowing what the answer would be.
A man decided to stop and meet a girl that everyday waits for customers at a traffic lights crossing. Every time this man sees her, on the way back home. Sometimes he has a chat with her. Sometimes he looks into her eyes or he only imagines to have a chat with her. Oh, he is so attracted by her. But obviously he knows her job. For some kind of reason he cannot stop thinking about her face and voice. Not for a sex desire, but simply because the fragments of her personality and soul he has received, were sufficient to chain his mind and heart. He knows that feeling. That is love.
Now, everything in this world suggests that love can do anything. Love yields to nothing and to no one. But are we really sure that in this case love is really strong enough to carry on the story?
One day he decided to stop, and let her get in like a normal customer, but he is really interested in other feelings, that he needs to confirm or justify. But all the firm beliefs he had before she got in are now crumbling in front of his shame of going with a prostitute. On the other hand, she recognized in his eyes a sort of “tender look”, so common to hundreds of customers she met.
At the end of the day he cannot act like a normal customer and he doesn’t accept to have sex with her, ‘cause he loves her. Then, she refuses this theory, ‘cause she cannot see a customer joining her private and intimate sphere as a lover. Everything ends with no romance, no fairy tale ending, but just with a normal human social ending. He gets only her name.
In my opinion this would be how this story would end 100% of the time.
My question is why can love not face in this case a “social mass opinion”. Every story is possible, in this world. Priests who renounce their vocation for love, or good girls with criminals, rich with poor. Everything crumbles in front of love. Except this.
Lyrics
The same lady on the street, she’s always on my way
Beside the traffic lights
Five miles to an empty home I don’t
Feel like staying alone
Hey you how much is your night?
Just a love for rent
Her scent, devil’s essence that
On money he uses to dance

Sense of light, thin on sight, that slides
Heavy right on my heart
Sweet dart on me flashing deep, oh dear
There’s much more than a deal…
Hey you how much is your love?
Priceless shame
Your words in a while passed me by

Because of love
Tonight
I will not hide
I cannot dim the light inside
With that cage built on lies
Titanic for love should I stop running after you
As there’s no one by my side?
I see, you treat me as a fish who wants to breathe
Out of his own sea
Do you believe it could be real?
Me and you, a whore…
Am I ready to lie for the rest of my life
Like dancing on a wire

For this love
Tonight I cannot hide
I cannot bear such voices outside
Full of rules empty fool society
Titanic for love should I stop running after you
As there’s no one by my…

Hey now, hey now, you tell me
There’s no hope to exchange my love but
Hey now, hey now, my heart shakes
You have got to be mine, baby
Hey now, hey now, madness
Hold me so tight and
Hey you what do you think I’m gonna do
With no one by my side…?
So.. how is it going? Honey..
I don’t know how this story is gonna end
What is simple gets so hard and I pretend
To let my heart be free, to be a real man
But echoes bend space and time and my hand
Is under rules of fools… and I loose… again….again
And the only thing, tonight, I want
Is the only thing, tonight, I’ll get
is your name… your name… Helena

Hidden God
Info
Year: 2003
Album: CMYK - EP#4 Key Black (2014); On Air (BASH, 2009)
Language: English
Meaning
This song it’s not easy to explain in a few words.
I have imagined myself to be an alien who travels across the universe, seeking traces and proofs of any kind of evidence of God. Because life ends everywhere in the universe, and this fear I believe is the one we could share with all creatures, wherever they are.
Anyway. He lands on the Earth. He starts studying humans using the only method he knows: Living with them and being part of them.
The first impression is great. Here, he’s sure to find what he is looking for, because humans are definitely our Lord’s masterpiece.
Months after months, he sees the same horrible things life produces everywhere. War, hatred, betrayal, egoism. Here, Life produces its antidote, like everywhere.
Is it coherent with the existence of God, creator of life and architect of our nature?
The Alien is ready to go back, convinced that life was an error due to the random chaos.
But, in the days before leaving, something happens. He meets a woman. He is not able yet to define her beautiful or not, according to the human criteria he has never understood, but he was entranced by this person. The way she looks at him and the way his blood reacts by touching lightly her hair and skin surprises him. Is it the love humans talk about?
The fact is that he didn’t find a trace that life is not a joke of time, and the only divine evidence he was able to find was the shivers that went through his veins like a flood, when she just looked at him.
He renounced leaving. He destroyed his ship and decided to live with her, considering his quest ended and being certain that they are alone against fate, like everyone in the universe.
Lyrics
Knocking on your planet’s door
Sure to find what I’m looking for…
Maybe an evidence you’ve missed,
Or a whisper you perceive
Here I’ll meet the lord’s masterpiece…
The human being

Walking through a five billion crowd
A golden path straight to the answers’ house
Where nothing is known and everything is shown
But the truth seems to be too high

Land and Sky are untied
Like Pain an Pleasure in your life
Only Love fights to stay alive
Between wars and tears should I give up to

Seek?
Hidden god
Why believe in a
Hidden god?
Oh, why the Faith and no trace?
But within me I feel
The truth is not too high
So tired to touch the crafts of our Mother’s art
I realize there’s no sound of our Father’s harp
But when my heart melts away
And a moment fills a day
Just because of you…
I must say, that’s the wake of light to follow tonight

Land and Sky in your eyes
So I passed the door which divides
The natural origin and the divine
I have found the one thing that lets me give up to

Seek,
Hidden god…
Why believe in a
Hidden God?
Why believe in a
Hidden God?
Oh, why that Faith?
Light years I’ve crossed to get awake and see
there’s no trace that life is not a fake
Or the love is the dogma we may need
To unveil the Scene we wish to see… here…
Within me I feel
We are alone tonight

Gargantua
Info
Year: 2004
Album: On Air (BASH, 2009)
Language: Italian
Meaning
C'è una lettera, scritta da Gargantua al figlio, Pantagruele, nel secondo libro che Rebelais scrisse sui racconti di Gargantua.
"Gargantua scrive una lettera a Pantagruele. Nella lettera, Gargantua sostiene che il più eccellente regalo elargito all'uomo dal Creatore è la capacità di renderci immortali attraverso la nostra progenie. Tuttavia, Gargantua incoraggia Pantagruele a nutrire sia l'immagine del corpo di Gargantua e la più eccellente caratteristica di Gargantua, ossia la sua intelligenza. Egli dà una litania di consigli, e quindi chiede che Pantagruele faccia ritorno da lui prima di morire in modo che egli possa vedere cosa ha fatto e dargli la sua benedizione. Questa lettera ha effettivamente motivato Pantagruel nello studiare diligentemente ".
Ho letto questa lettera. Si tratta di una sorta di manifesto dell’umanesimo. Fondamentalmente, Gargantua spiega al figlio come ottenere la sua benedizione. Pantagruele deve studiare tutto. Poi, egli sarà in grado di soddisfare il padre.
Ho messo questo significato in parallelo con i nostri giorni.
Sembra un padre dei giorni d'oggi che costringe il figlio o la figlia a studiare e studiare e studiare. Ma non gli ha mai chiesto cosa gli piace e, ancora più importante, non ha mai controllato in quale argomento o attività sono davvero portati. Così ho deciso di rispondere a Gargantua, e questa canzone è risposta di pantagruele alla sua lettera.

PS: Sono stato molto fortunato nella mia vita. Questa canzone non è un rimpianto personale o una protesta contro i miei genitori, che sono stati perfetti con me, lasciandomi qualsiasi tipo di libertà di scegliere tutto ciò che desideravo per me e per il mio futuro.
Lyrics
Ho letto già
La tua lettera
e ora consentimi
Una melodia
più dolce, lenta e malinconica
Del fiume di pensieri
Che una foce rivendica

Gelidi più dei mari del nord
I tuoi intenti di ruggine
Dottrine per
Presentarmi da te
E ora sono parte di me,
Sono tutte dentro di me
Ma sono vuoto per metà

Idiota il pensiero che,
La felicità
Sia figlia dell’onniscienza
Dell’humanitas
La ragione no, non colmerà
Questa triste metà
Ciò che amo io sarò,
Per voce dell’anima.
Unico verso del cuor
D’arte genesi
E tu non hai avuto mai
Il coraggio di chiedermi
La mia identità
La mia verità,
Nella mia anima…

Idiota il pensiero che
La mia realtà
Sia scudo e spada
Della tua viltà
Oh padre no, non incarnerò
La tua verità
Perché ciò che amo io sarò
Per l’eternità…
E se morirai vedendo me in una lacrima?
E se vivrai vedendo me senz’anima?
E se io morirò vestendo te?
E se io morirò vivendo me?
Non più sale sul mio cuor
Da oggi niente fuorché l’amore

Gargantua

Giorni Così
Info
Year: 2017
Album: Oltre le Quinte
Language: Italian
Meaning
Un paradosso, che ha la pretesa di dimostrare per assurdo.
Di sera, dopo lavoro, nella sua casa vuota. Apre il PC, sul suo Social Network preferito, a vedere chi c’è nell’agorà del nuovo millennio. Scrive un post e, passando da una pagina all’altra, monitora i relativi likes, commenti, magari condivisioni. E’ strana la felicità di vedere i cenni e gli apprezzamenti, i pareri e le battute… e sente che manca qualcosa. Allora chiede chi c’è per una birra… ma tutti hanno da fare. Un gran buon motivo per dire “no, grazie”. E si stupisce del pensiero di cosa darebbe, in realtà, per una sana sbronza con un amico, pazzo come lui.
Lyrics
Giorni così, di quella sana voglia
Di scambiare giusto un'idea
O chiacchierare un poco
E aprendo il web posti come stai
Sia figo e vero il modo e vedrai
Che così solo non sei
Connesso a questa rete come me

Beh, sei li che speri che
La tua immagine
Valga almeno un si
E in fondo speri che
Ci sia più di un like
A convincerti
Che sei parte di un 'noi'

Ti sentirai
Al caldo di un abbraccio
Inutile
Per quanto prova che c'è forse un 'noi'
Ma quel che vuoi
È solo un sorso di empatia
Da una banale e
Fottuta birra in compagnia
Sono giorni in cui urleresti 'Ehi, sono vivo!'
O 'Sono qui!', magari 'Abbracciami!'
Ma è freddo questo mondo
Oltre il PC... e posti come stai
Sia falso e avverso il senso scritto e certo
Qualcuno ti chiamerà... magari astemio, o forse fatto ma
Non capirai
I migliaia di occhi attenti nel capire melodie
Mentre quanto cerchi
È un verso che non c'è

Beh, sei lì che credi che
La tua immagine
Valga più di un si
E in fondo pensi che
Non saranno i like
A convincerti
Che sei parte di un 'noi'
Ti sentirai
Dinanzi ad un abbraccio
Inutile
Per quanto prova che c'è forse un 'noi'
Ma quel che vuoi
È solo un sorso di empatia
Da una banale e
Fottuta birra in compagnia

E tu ti sentirai
Dinanzi ad un abbraccio
Inutile
Per quanto prova che c'è forse un 'noi'
Ma quel che vuoi
È solo un po' di compagnia
Sincera e inerme, vera e strana come
Me che cerco il cuore
In una fottuta sbronza in mezzo a voi
Come se poi ci fosse solo un noi
