Track Name: Make the Iguana (2011)
MAKE THE IGUANA

Asking for
answers that won’t be given
‘Why do we live?’
‘How we came here?’

Pick some water and
put it into a
big, strange glass thing, add a fire under
First you have to set
the atmosphere:
add two electrodes then
get ready for the show

People chattin’ without
knowin’ what they’re saying
‘Where is the truth?’
‘Why is so hard to find?’

Make the iguana!

‘Why is life so
hard to understand?’
‘Is the answer
hidden in science?’
Track Name: Starway's End (2011)
STARWAY'S END

End is near but I’m not scared
From darkness new light will rise.

I know that between stars hand of angels they hide

Their tears will mark my path
And on soft wings I’ll land there,

Where nothing is created, nothing is lost

Ancient black hole will tear flesh away to open the eyes of the
Ancient black hole will tear flesh away to open the eyes of the
Ancient black hole will tear flesh away to open the eyes of the
Ancient black hole will tear flesh away to open the eyes of the soul.

Protect me, astral strength
In your hand you will carry

The deadly destiny of the world

And with your eyes you’ve seen
The story of wandering spirits

Like me roaming to reach the starway’s end.

Ancient black hole will tear flesh away to open the eyes of the
Ancient black hole will tear flesh away to open the eyes of the
Ancient black hole will tear flesh away to open the eyes of the
Ancient black hole will tear flesh away to open the eyes of the soul.

End is near but I’m not scared
From darkness new light will rise.
Track Name: Wind of Truth (2011)
WIND OF TRUTH

The glory of hunt turns
Into revenge
When the slaughter shows us
The village's end

Everything's destroyed

Our thirst of blood will follow
These sacred wind of truth
And in the end
We'll free our hearts from hell

Wind of truth

Following ancient holy words
That wind's offering us,
We'll go to search the cowards
That ransacked our home

They will die
Track Name: La Vergine e il Lupo (2011)
LA VERGINE E IL LUPO

Giungo dalle steppe mie care
Stanotte, del buio col favore.
Com’ella, dall’arido mio cuore
Nessuna sì mi fu dato amare

Così meditando andava il lupo
Guidato dal chiaro della luna
E come s’appressava alla padrona
L’animo via via si fea men cupo


Mio diletto, la tua bocca sa di sangue
Ed è questo un mesto tratto tuo avito
Ma un barlume di purezza pur sopito
Nel tuo petto gramo e fiero giace e langue


Madama, tal è la mia natura
Io certo non scelsi d’esser fiera
E supplice, in questa notte nera
Asilo chiedo appo la tua verzura

E dimmi, orsù, che posso fare,
S’il mio cuor davvero può esser puro?
Dimmi se può il mio animo oscuro
Alfin divenir degno del tuo amore.


Mio diletto, qui riposa il petto stanco:
Non temere per la tua triste sorte
Ma rifuggi la paura della morte,
Giaci finalmente qui al mio fianco.
