Cheap pop

Escaped the ruins of my country
(my whole life I will defend)
invader in despair

Sailed the seas of shame to soothe my aches
(from this mob with my own hands)
in hope of a dignity

And under nervous eyes I’m being judged
(They’re a treat for what I gained)
the foreigner from the east
(They came to conquer and destroy
They have no rules nor god to pray)

And while you scour your seas
in order to preserve
I am ready to protect
they won’t have for me respect

And your ships deny the needs
everyone should deserve
I am ready to protect
they won’t have for me respect

A cheap pop puts the tents
on another cheap pop’s land
I am ready to protect

Just a stone
that’s my home
not enough
I want more

Centuries
gazing up
at the stars
and the gods

Find a place
a new home
boundaries
I’ll break free

Because of you I’m here
a mother I don’t fear
it’s now the time to go
outside my little word

To rule the time and space
without your saving grace
trespassing the limits
defeat ’em bit by bit

Because of you I’m here
the surface of your sphere
will I don’t miss at all
or will I come back home?

Sometimes i feel you don’t perceive
all the things i’ve done to let you live fulfilled

It seems we talk a different speech
and both of us unsure how will it the other reach

One day you’ll maybe see the truth
that I’ve been tryin’ to do for us the best I could

And every single night I pray
this stalemate we find won’t let us go far away

We hang over the same
as we expect the others be the first to change

We hang over the same
as we expect the others be the first to change

With a different eye I’ll see
looking backwards at my past
I will feel the difference

All the evils I went through
because life is a game you play
learning on time the rules

And you try not to go wrong
and to mend the mistakes you made
better remember them all

Sometimes suffering comes for free
Some days all of the joys you got
don’t seem enough
they’re not enough

Scross the seasons of our years
we dance with eyes but full of tears
sometimes crying for delights
others weeping for the pains

You’ll never really will be free
while you live in your golden cage
filled by material things

A flock of swallows in the air
recalls you millions of thoughts you passed
the swears disobeyed

All the dreams you’ll realize
have a bittersweet taste on ’em
you will too late understand

While flows this river of deceit
life is only the big fraud
where you’ll never win
you can never win

Across the seasons of our years
we dance with eyes but full of tears
sometimes crying for delights
others weeping for the pains

Try to fill your empty soul
life’s a too uneasy burden
if you can’t make it on your own
take a walk into the garden

Bliss your body and your mind
just don’t care about the nightmares
once they came they will remain
until you’ll walk again the garden

Dive the waters for you came
pleasure will be back again

The sun rises again
above our guilty heads
its light that marks the land

You should have gone
I could have done

The sense you never had
The nerve you always showed
The change you never made
The loss of all what you had

You should have done
I could have done
now we’re apart

Recensioni

Rockit

Lo stato di tensione creato dalla melodia alienante del synth unita alle profonde linee di basso e ad una chitarra ruvida e martellante ripercorre lo scenario di un blockbuster hollywoodiano degli anni ’90.

 

Ver Sacrum

La musica di Mattatoio5 ha spesso l’ampiezza di respiro del post-rock, ma le sue atmosfere appaiono più dark che ‘cosmiche’ e talvolta le note intense della chitarra spalancono visioni dense di malinconia.

 

MeMagazine – Mattatoio5 tra arte visiva e sonora

Ossessiva, incalzante, a tratti ipnotica, astratta da se stessa e dai soliti schemi; combinano sonorità anti-convenzionali a immagini, effetti visivi e coreografie live che puntano a coinvolgere udito e vista in un’esperienza proiettata oltre il mero ascoltare.
