Over mountains and plains Sun seems to have disappeared Sweet is the cold breath of the wind Blowing a well-known melody A ship sailing on the horizon Reminds me of my stormy childhood I was born in a place Where skies and earth make only one Passing over the foaming rivers in my torn red pants I used to sing this sweet melody Far from your sun I stand x4 Winded by our runs through the moor We laid in the tall grass The wind swept our hair The rain washed our muddy faces Under the wrath of a raging sky We watch waves breaking on cliffs In a dark moonless night We were the guardians of this land Far from your sun I stand x4 Over mountains and plains Sun seems to have disappeared Sweet is the cold breath of the wind Blowing a well-known melody A ship sailing on the horizon Reminds me of my stormy childhood I was born in a place Where skies and earth make only one Under the wrath of a raging sky We watch waves breaking on cliffs In a dark moonless night I am the guardian of this land

I know you went through a bad time Guess the words you have never said I know the bitterness of your dreams See the scars of time deep in your mind You left on the roads of life with the urge to live You were beautiful you were strong Scared to be what you are now Ordinary man alone face to himself Remember the time when you were young and proud Remember the days when you were strong There is something wrong in your eyes There is something wrong in your smile Nothing to erase the pain A feeling of sorrow inside I remember the day when you are gone I remember those days when I cried Now you are back but the years of glory are gone Now you are back but I don’t see you anymore Remember the time when you were young and proud Remember the days when you were strong Remember the time when you were young and proud Remember the days when you were strong Silence and weakness were your worst enemies Better dying than living on knees Have you forgotten all your promises Who put these chains around your neck I cannot stand to see you creeping On the trace of your past All these roads you wanted to hit You lost your soul you lost your faith Where are your dreams now Where are your hopes now Where are your dreams now Where are your hopes now Face of stony soldiers you broke your hands Faced with cold illusions you burnt your eyes Face of stony soldiers you broke your hands Faced with cold illusions you burnt your eyes Where are your dreams now Where are your hopes now Remember the time when you were young and proud Remember the days when you were strong Remember the time when you were young and proud Remember the days when you were strong Remember the time x3 Remember this time

It was many and many a year ago In a kingdom by the sea That a maiden there lived, whom you may know By the name of Annabel Lee And this maiden she lived with no other thought Than to love and be loved by me And this maiden she lived with no other thought Than to love and be loved by me I was a child and she was a child In this kingdom by the sea But we loved with a love that was more than love I and my Annabel Lee With a love that the winged seraphs of Heaven Coveted her and me With a love that the winged seraphs of Heaven Coveted her and me This was the reason that, long ago In this kingdom by the sea The winds blew out of a cloud, chilling My beautiful Annabel Lee So that her highborn kinsmen came And bore her away from me, To shut her up in a sepulchre In this kingdom by the sea The Angels, not half so happy in Heaven, Went envying her and me Yes! That was the reason (as all men know In this kingdom by the sea) That the wind came out of a cloud by night Chilling and killing my Annabel Lee. Annabel Lee The wind came out of a cloud by night Annabel Lee Chilling and killing my Annabel Lee Annabel Lee The wind came out of a cloud by night Annabel Lee But our love, it was stronger by far than the love Of those who were older than we, Of many far wiser than we And neither the Angels in Heaven above Nor the demons down under the sea Can ever dissever my soul from the soul Of the beautiful Annabel Lee. Annabel Lee The wind came out of a cloud by night Annabel Lee Chilling and killing my Annabel Lee Annabel Lee The wind came out of a cloud by night Annabel Lee Chilling and killing my Annabel Lee For the moon never beams without bringing me dreams Of the beautiful Annabel Lee And the stars never rise, but I feel the bright eyes Of my beautiful Annabel Lee. And so, all the nighttide, I lie down by the side Of my darling! My darling, my life and my bride. In her sepulchre, there by the sea, In her tomb, by the side of the sea. And so, all the nighttide, I lie down by the side Of my darling! My darling, my life and my bride. In her sepulchre, there by the sea, In her tomb, by the side of the sea.

Life is an illusion Made of flowers and perfumes Life is an illusion Made of very small things Leading us to unknown shores Into an uncertain future Life is an illusion Made of thorns and poisons Life is an illusion Made of very small things Blowing our hopes and desires away Into an uncertain future There is the silver rain falling down on the cobblestones The dazzling colors of an autumn garden There is a pearl of dew shimmering with a thousand reflections The flapping of a butterfly's wings There is the teasing wind painting up misty figures in the sky The final dance of the reddish-brown leaves There is the ghostly light of the moon on the stony walls The endless promises of the horizon There is the roaring thunder of the unsatisfied anger The toxic verses of an indecent poet There is a ghost walking on the ledge of the blighted hopes bridge The silence of a baby, a mother’s cries There is the teasing wind painting up misty figures in the sky The final dance of the reddish-brown leaves There is the ghostly light of the moon on the stony walls The endless promises of the horizon Do we sail on the stream of our destiny Does it mean no merit no guilt There is the roaring thunder of the unsatisfied anger The toxic verses of an indecent poet/poem There is a ghost walking on the ledge of the blighted hopes bridge The silence of a baby, a mother’s cries There is the teasing wind painting (up) misty figures in the sky The final dance of the reddish-brown leaves There is the ghostly light of the moon on the stony walls The endless promises of the horizon Life is an illusion Made of flowers and perfumes Life is an illusion There is the silver rain falling down on the cobblestones The dazzling colors of an autumn garden There is a pearl of dew shimmering with a thousand reflections There is you... Perhaps

They put chains on me To keep me away from you They danced around me To save me from your spell They played their damn songs To make me forget about you To make me forget about you They put chains on me To keep me away from you They danced around me To save me from your spell They played their damn songs To make me forget about you To make me forget about you They wanted me to drink the wine of euphoria to give me a hope I did not claim Offered me drugs to make me feel like an addict on the nod They drew me their garden of Eden, exposed my thirst to the lustful rumps of livid whores Threw their notes at my feet, promised me happiness pleasure and love They raised up golden temples and silver bridges, nearly burnt my eyes by their vain sun Told me the codes and rules of a world without codes and rules They've taken one of my breaths away But eternity is ours They've stolen one of my breaths away But eternity is ours I've tripped over on the trail leading to your soul I've slept in the burning arms of corruption They put chains on me To keep me away from you They danced around me To save from your spell They played their damn songs To make me forget about you To make me forget about you They've taken one of my breaths away But eternity is ours They've stolen one of my breaths away But eternity is ours

I know a place Behind your dreams Where you can fly Up to the stars I know a song Beyond your smile That will lead you High in the sky I know a place Behind your tears Where you can fly Up to the stars I know a time Beyond your cries When you will live A thousand lives

The black shadows of the tortured bodies Hang tirelessly on the branches of dishonor Condemned to the silence, to the silence of the weak Cursed keepers of the path of the hanged men Here stands the thin line between life and death Here stands the frontiere between glory and pain See the men Who left their dreams to others stronger To others stronger than them See the men For whom the reality Cursed the name for eternity Walking to the rhythm of the vultures screams Mutilated by the vicious appetite of crows Obscene exposition of an endless lost quest I penetrate the circle of the damned Frightened by this vision of horror I continue under this fence of suffering Attracted by the calls of abandon Are my ambitions too strong for me The road to hell is paved with good intentions The road to hell is paved with good intentions On the path of the hanged men I touched the face of desperation On the path of the hanged men I learnt the weakness of dreams On the path On the path I danced with the shadows of the damned I heard the loud silence of oblivion I touched the face of desperation I learnt the weakness of our dreams See the men Who left their dreams to others stronger To others stronger than them See the men For whom the reality Cursed the name for eternity See the men Who left their dreams to others stronger To others stronger than them See the men Who left their dreams to others stronger To others stronger than them See the men

As the sun fades away And the city falls asleep Under a blood red sky I’m looking around for a smile And see nothing but desperate eyes I’ve got nowhere to go No one to love My head is my shelter and stars my only friends But don’t shed tears for me Cause the only thing I’ve got Is more than all you could own What are we waiting for What are we looking for You and I don’ know Forget and dream x2 I’ve got nowhere to go No one to love My head is my shelter and stars my only friends But don’t shed tears for me Cause the only thing I’ve got Is more than all you could own What are we waiting for What are we looking for You and I don’ know Forget and dream x2 My eyes scan an endless sea Lost in this blue vision Silently my fears fly away And despair disappears My hands draw on the ground The lines of an imaginary shore Slowly I cross the edge of reality And penetrate the kingdom of beyond Sailing on an ocean of calm Flying through clouds and sliding on rainbows Is it a dream? Is it heaven? God only knows My eyes scan an endless sea Lost in this blue vision Silently my fears fly away And despair disappears My hands draw on the ground The lines of an imaginary shore Slowly I cross the edge of reality And penetrate the kingdom of beyond Sailing on an ocean of calm Flying through clouds and sliding on rainbows Is it a dream? Is it heaven? God only knows But does knowing really matter?

about

"In the beginning.. was the emotion" is a collection of 8 singles reunited as a full-length album.
Borrowing from romanticism and poetry, which can be sometimes dark or troubling, each piece is the illustration of an experience, a moment in time, where both humans and nature are the main protagonists.
