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.

Track Name: Far from your sun
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
Track Name: Under the hands of time
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
Track Name: Annabel Lee
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.
Track Name: Life
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
Track Name: The eightfold path
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
Track Name: A thousand lives
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
Track Name: On the path (of the hanged men)
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
Track Name: F.A.D.
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?
