Track Name: Battering Ram [Inside Oni]
Ehy ehy, scrivila prima che sia tardi.
Vorresti fare il rap, ma non sai come pigliarti?
Guarda intorno, vedi un po’ in giro
Bastasse forse trattenere il respiro.
Nella testa va forte il delirio,
Mille strofe un antico martirio
…e Boom! Quando parto dalle storie mie
Potrei andare avanti più veloce delle mie poesie?
Egocialtronismo, egocentrismo,
La folla è la gente dall’occhio già vinto
Butta su una strumentale
Che sono un animale,
Faccio rime solo per compiacermi uguale.
Come volare su un futuro tetro,
Cantando nel blu con tinte di nero

Chorus
Benvenuti a tutti dentro la catarsi
Non c’è bene o male, ascolti per ipnotizzarti
Disegno di coerenza,viaggio a più voci
Hypnagogic, bionicamente veloci

Questa non è fase REM, illusione ipnagogica
Quando vedo mostri da società distopica.
Strade infinite per addormentarsi
Guidando soli in macchine, pazzi…
Sogni d’impiccio, conti alla fine,
Velocizzare consensi e partite.
Regole umane, il profitto che uccide,
Tu rendi moderno il concetto a seguire.
Esseri umani, gli eventi del tempo,
La tecnologia avrà i sopravvento?

Benvenuti a tutti dentro alla catarsi
Non c’è bene o male, ascolti per ipnotizzarti
Disegno di coerenza,viaggio a più voci
Hypnagogic, bionicamente veloci

Scrivila, scrivila presto
Prima che il virus faccia effetto,
Software nel cervello, umani con il preconcetto.
Il mio hardware vi ha abbandonato da tempo
Questo viaggio nei meandri del rispetto.
Questione di radici, qui conta quel che dici,
L’esperienza è nuova ma non porta nuovi amici.
Amplia l’orizzonte e i tuoi punti di vista
Questo rap non si dà arie da artista.
Falsa modestia, ti prendi sul serio?
Faccio sul serio, non vedo dinero.
Una macchina atroce l’artificio della mia voce,
Collegami all’istinto di sputarvi due parole.
Quando parli è strano, esplosione imminente,
Tecnologicamente, idiozia latente.

Benvenuti a tutti dentro alla catarsi
Non c’è bene o male, ascolti per ipnotizzarti
Disegno di coerenza,viaggio a più voci
Hypnagogic, bionicamente veloci

Las raíces ...

Sentado baho un cedro,
serrado dentro su madera,
sim del hambre mordera en el mundo de la sordera.
Serrado en la filosofia en esta cavidad oscura,
perdido todo el mundo en este verde profundo.

en su raices (x4)
en su ramas
en su tierra
en su sal
en su ramas
en su sangre (x3)

Serrado en esta madera toda la vida,
dise mi alma esta toda perdida,
estoy seco y la mente arida,
en esta madera toda la vida...

en sus raises,
en sus ramas,
en sus tierra,
en sus sal
en sus sangre (x3)
en su tierra,
en su sal

yo puedo vencer a todos
Track Name: C 99
Cast aside the Dreams
This coal shall be a grave of our destiny
Genocides are easy to see and feel

Cast aside Reality
Man always fall through their doubts
Parallyzed skills
Are always suspicious

A glint of space
Is falling from the sky
We’re everywhere
Spanned by our will

Cast aside the Fears
There’s nothing that spreads in our agony
Hypnagogic tears (taste like Evil)
Are Heaven’s jests of pleasure

Marrying Simmetry
All the time eclypses and falls
Morning falls and dreams
To crown me like I’m God
Track Name: SP Massive Grunt
Verse 1 (the first penguin reads)
A lightning breaks this ice, it shines in my eyes
Everything make me see there’s a willpower expression,
Inside our mind, where we’re out of time,
That’s the life, that’s the fight, we need to stay here and dance in line.

We’ll grab the sky
With this blue light,
From the flame, from the fire.
In this frozen temple.

We’ll melt this walls,
We’ll go away with the flow,
But now we can’t fly,
‘cause we are concentrated to.

Feel the cold outside
And I see the energy flowing away,
We will get it only if we try

Chorus
Beyond the mist there’s a new world order
We’re frozen in time and in frozen lines crystallized
But how shall we go carrying pain and sorrow?
Our eagerness awaits the wind

Verse 2 (the second penguin reads)
Bad dreams about isolations
My mind is running ambitions
This led just called meditation (That teach me!)

Watch out! The world is so wide, the sun is rising,
Don’t waste your time…go on!
And take of your flyes (Yes take of your flies!)
Let’s sort the rave...right now!!!

Chorus
Beyond the mist there’s a new world order
We’re frozen in time and in frozen lines crystallized
But how shall we go carrying pain and sorrow?
Our eagerness awaits the wind

Verse 3 (the priest)
We are gathered toghether in this dolmen of faith
Celebration of souls, one body, one mind
Our path will be enlightened by blue flame
Sliding on bellys we will fertilaze the world
The mouth of madness is in your eyes
We need to hear our sickness
Swallowing your eyes as pils
Flating opur brain like an ice cream cup

[Behind the scenes:
He raws now!
Are you in?
What the hell is happening now??
Look at the wheel!
To what??
The colour wheel is changing!!

SHHHH...SHUT UP!!!]

and we say…goodbye!!!

Chorus
Beyond the mist there’s a new world order
We’re frozen in time and in frozen lines crystallized
But how shall we go carrying pain and sorrow?
Our eagerness has reached the wind

(all the participants)
Our eagerness has reached the wind
