She's going to take us in the deeper blacker silence of the night She still lives in our thoughts, she's everywhere we would call for the fight She's crying but she won't die, she's stronger than the drugs in all their creeds She will remind us that sometimes a breeze foretells a stormy wind What a beautiful thing to wake up early in the morning What a beautiful thing to hear the sound of our brains What a beautiful thing to say "I'm only bleeding" We're the bees, we're the beast We're the bees in the beast We're the beast and the bees We're the beast in the bees She's going to take us in the deeper blacker silence of the night She's going to take us in the deeper blacker silence of the night We're the bees in the beast We're the beast in the bees

Outside 03:26
Be sweet Be shy Be still Be quiet Be blue Be fun Be cool Be warm But when you're outside just be alert And call the things by their real name A war is a war, a foe is a foe You're not here to do nothing Be sad Be tired Be frail Don't mind Be weak Be sore Just when You're home But when you're outside just be alert And call the things by their real name A war is a war, a foe is a foe You're not here to be nothing Be quiet Be slow 'cause now You're home

Kissing Bye 03:19
Wake Gimme a smile Don't be afraid Take your time Stay I've to go Just a few days I'll come home Wouldn't see you cry Wouldn't see you cry I want to see you grow Take What you need To keep playing In your sleep Save Some of your smiles To make the world It takes a while Wouldn't see you cry Wouldn't see you cry I want to see you grow Wouldn't see you cry Wouldn't see you cry I want to see you fall and go Fall and go

Rose is a cat She will find a way Is dangerous for you For her is ok Rose is the crumb You don't even see She can save your life She can make you weep She got everything She needs to survive She doesn't give up She's one of a kind Rose is a cat She doesn't fear war She didn't fear peace It's all about control Rose is a leaf She looks for the sun She's there by the lake 'though summer is gone She got everything She needs to survive She doesn't give up She's one of a kind She's everywhere She doesn't miss a thing You abandon the match She's there on the ring She's there on the ring She's one of a kind

What kind of man you see? What kind of man you adore? What kind of man you like? That is the man you are What kind of man you hate? What kind of man deplore? What kind of man you oppress? That's the man at the door What a pity, you were king in the morning You'll be dead by tonight What kind of man you love? What kind of man you admire? What kind of man you dread? That is the man you are What kind of man you thrash? What kind of man you ignore? What kind of man you shoo? That's the man at the door What a pity, you were king in the morning You'll be dead by tonight Dead by tonight You'll be dead by tonight

November 03:02
Kingdoms fall like leaves Servants don't feel cold No one can buy you if you can not be sold Warriors fall like leaves Rulers now get cold No one can rescue you if you want to be alone When I go to fight I just look for your embrace And your eyes When I go to fight And I fear the death, I know I will die Kingdoms fall like leaves Warriors fall like leaves But you're still there at your place With our love I will go to fight Will look not for your embrace And I'll die I will go to fight Will look not for your embrace And I'll die All alone Yes I'll die All alone Kingdoms fall like leaves Warriors fall like leaves But you're still there at your place With our love Yes you're still at your place With your love

Cruel 04:42
Here there was a girl Someone loved her eyes Now nobody's here And you've never heard about her Here there was a man And he shook his head He said he was wrong And you've never heard about him Here there was my boy He was hungry and cold Mercy died with him I will sing before I kill you No names on our graves No thrones in our rooms No jewels on our necks Didn't need them, didn't dream them No name on your grave Don't need any more No one to mourn you I will sing after I kill you And I will sing before I And I will sing before I And I will sing before I kill you I will sing And I will cry after I And I will cry after I And I will cry after I kill you I will cry

about

I composed these songs between the end of October and the beginning of November 2017, in the same order as you can listen to them.
I was thinking about the Russian Revolution of 1917 and, in general, about the people who fight. About the children, the women and the men who die or survive during a revolution.
No one of the warriors in this album wanted to be a soldier.
They fight, they die, they kill just to be ordinary guys, with an ordinary life.
It can be a strange thing to consider, in an era in which everyone and everything pretend to be special.
It's a 31-minute rough album for voice and electric guitar.
