Laskeutui Tähän käsiini Väsyneenä Ja pettyneenä Niin raskaana Taivaalta Kuin lehti Lehdet laskeutuu Raskaasti maahan Maa vetää Niin raskaasti Puoleensa Laskeutuu Ja laskeutuu Maa vetää Puoleensa ------------------------- Descending Into my arms Tired Disappointed So heavy Like a falling leaf Falling Down To the ground Leaves descending Heavy on the ground The earth is pulling Heavily descending and descending the earth is pulling
I am feeling like a lion Just let me sing my story What about my head in the dark Like a sparrow I’ll find Something way behind The dusty nutty town None of us is a homeless I can’t get out of my head Can’t get out of this melting spread Can’t get out Can’t get out of my head Oh oh oh Truthiness Can’t get out of my head Bubbles come in and I can get them Even with all my means
I didn’t ask to be here Actually I’m not in this wide room You can’t hear me, but I overhear you all My senses are fed up of your voices No window is big enough to watch the outside world I’m a daily ghost A walking spirit But my mind is far from these walls It runs through waves of particles and ohms Bewildered by ignorance While this hollow body grows old among the plastic weeds Go. Go home for another pint of laughter Forget this shallowness Pee on the ground, wear your hat and gloves That’s what I tell to myself At the sixth tick of the clock
有一个故事是关于两把椅子的 先是一把椅子 然后是另一把 在那之前还有一个梯子 是真正的梯子 上面放着一瓶气泡水 一只母狗注视着气泡 直到它们消失 当时天还没亮 一些鸡蛋在冰箱里发光 是橘色的光,就像冰箱正在溶解 但同时也在结晶 我想,这是一个明亮的世界 但我想错了,我们都错了 我只想日我的母狗 她已经不是我的母狗 There is a story about two chairs One chair first Then another There was a ladder as well, before A real ladder A bottle of sparkling water was on it A bitch was gazing the babbles Till they all disappeared It was before the dawn Some eggs were shining in the fridge It was orange light, as if the fridge was dissolving And crystalizing at same time I thought it's a bright world But I was wrong, we were all wrong I just want to fuck my bitch She is no more my bitch
Facing the waves With the survivors, It's time now To start again. I walk down to the water, Come find me on this horizon. It's my life Of storms and sunlight. The skies here, They overwhelm me. Facing the waves With the survivors. Time now To start again. Time now To start again. Time now To start again. ...
Timidi cristalli di ghiaccio cadono forte, l'uno sull'altro. Vicino a un piede gonfio di tutti i passi che non ha fatto. Lontano, un razzo in letargo. Smemorate dee senza veli danzano su un lago di ghiaccio. Una vecchia arranca controvento con un gioiello di brina sugli occhi. Passi d’orco che fanno bum bum. Una porta che si apre e si chiude. Un vestito giallo spiegazzato da un ballo, dimenticato dietro un vetro appannato. Chissà quanto dura la telefonata di sciarpe, che parlano di notti dai piedi freddi e di impronte di fango su marmo. Un tutù di piume di pavone e una partita a tennis con le ghiande. Segreti, scarpette, stivali, pozioni, parità. Poi, il disgelo, un girotondo di gemme e un tuffo nel verde. Shy frozen crystals fall down loud, one on each other. Very close, a big foot full of all the steps it hasn't made. Far, a rocket in hibernation. Forgetful goddesses dance barefoot on a frozen lake. An old woman walks against the wind with a frost jewel on her eyes. Ogre steps make boom boom. An open door. A closed door after a short while. Yellow wrinkled dancing gown, forgotten behind the glass of a steamy window. Whoever knows how long will last the phone call between scarves, speaking of nights with cold feet and mud prints on marble floor. A peacock feather tutu and a tennis match with acorns. Secrets, shoes, boots, potions, deuce. Then, the thaw, a ring-around-the-rosey of gems and a dive into green.


This album is the second collaboration between Enrico Coniglio and Matteo Uggeri, now joined under the band name of Open to the Sea.

In the attempt of moving more and more into melodic forms of musical experimentation, this time Coniglio (that cares of most of the instrumentation, playing guitars, piano, synths and the Armenian flute duduk) and Uggeri (in charge of the whole production and providing samples, field recordings and any other weird sound) have enlarged the team of collaborators, including several singers.

Among them, we find an exceptional featuring by Dominic Appleton, of This Mortal Coil and Breathless, providing lyrics and voice for “Facing the Waves”. Beside him, here's the Chinese most known experimental musician, Yan Jun, and beautiful female voices such as the Finnish Lau Nau and the Swiss Romina Kalsi/Animor.

The British actor John Guilor (voice of the Doctor Who BBC radio drama) add variety to a really hard-to-classify album, while other fellows provide trumpet, cello and drums.

The pictures included in the artwork are from the British painter Graham Crowley.
