about

The idea of this compilation came to me when I was about to leave for Australia: a few cd-r to leave in some aussie music shops to give a taste of what we're doing in north eastern Italy. But having it limited to a couple of burnt cds is a bit of a waste, because the selection is pretty good. It's not history in the making, just a memory of what's happening now in the northeastern italian underground. I would like to thank all the bands that gave me a song for this compilation. It's on free download (name your price, but you all know how it works), no profit intended. Just a way to spread this music as more as possible. Maybe one day I'll put this onto tape, for the moment it's just a digital sampler.

Track Name: Danny Trejo - Memories Vs Goals
A hammer straight to the teeth
reminds me in what world we live
every time I think this shit means something
there's a stain covering my dreams
how many times I thought "I'll give up"
sleepless night trying to figure a true meaning out
but you know what?
I'll not give you this pleasure
because you know what?
I've got goals
you've got only memories.
All this means a lot to me
I still believe in a change
I don't know if things will improve
time will tell
for sure it's not thanks to people like you
or thanks to your brainless attitude
Track Name: Regarde - Knots
you didn’t mean it
what would i have done?
you rather lock the door
of your house
than fall apart

untie your knots:
your hands
will flutter again

shut out your thoughts:
your eyes
will see again
the things that you’ve lost
few years ago

but you just can’t get enough
feeling concern while you are waiting
set it off!
is not that you want to,
is that you need to

you didn’t mean it
what would have done?
you rather lock the door
of your house
than fall apart
Track Name: Snow Animal - Golden Ashtray
Sound of sirens all around, another kid is dead in town.
people taking photographs, no one call the ambulance.

Come the first car with the pigs, claim there's nothing to see here
everyone is just waiting for the superstar of every crime scene.

When he get out of his car with is golden smile all the crowd just forget that a kid is dead.

They call him Golden Ashtray, his mouth is made of gold. Nobody really know what has he done to end like this but the people love him anyway because he make them feel so safe.

Now as long as everyone will cooperate with us we'll be able to take out all the scum from the old town. I will not allow these kids to bring their discomfort in here. Citizens you can trust me. This kid belongs to the other side of the town.

Someone said the only witness walked away, he cannot be that far from here I guess or maybe is just too scared to show himself because he might be involved but I got other shit going on.
Track Name: MOS - Apatia
Avanzano decisi
Pronti a sconfiggere il loro rivale
Incappucciati e plasmati per distruggere
È così che l'essere umano si ostina a cambiare
La vendetta è quello che gli rimane
E ancora lacrime sui volti
Questi sogni quasi distrutti
Dall'orgoglio di queste persone
Non provano nessun rancore, nessun rancore
No, no, no, no, no, NO
È quello che voglio sentire
È quello che voglio farti sapere
È quello che cerco di ricordare
È quello che cerco di dimostrare
Apatia, apatia
Schizza cervello portami via!
Apatia, apatia
Schizza cervello portami via!
Non ce la faccio, non ce la faccio
Non ce la faccio più!
Track Name: The Mild - Convicted
You're seeing us tied here
Pleased of your view you're mocking us.
Our flesh overly nourished,
It's long been eaten and rotten.

The rain has drained and washed us.
The sun has dried and blackened us.

Crows have carved out our eyes,
Torn off our beards and eyebrows.

The rain has drained and washed us.
The sun has dried and blackened us.

Now here as the wind changes,
It tosses us around as its pleasure.
Waitin' us passing.
Track Name: Confine - Bestia
Dove pensi di stare?
Qui non c'è posto per te
Allontanati e abbassa lo sguardo
Cammina veloce
Passo dopo passo vai via di qui
Grazie per il tempo...che hai sprecato con me
Track Name: Slander - Give All
Talk, talk, talk
but nobody give a fuck
walk, walk, walk
but never far enough
standing still got me kicked in the jaws
so put the pedal to the metal, fuck the law!

Fuck plans just do what you do
and don't get stuck in the same ol'goo
What "if is?", it keep us back
fuck that shit, it's just another trap

Give a fuck about the buck
time to self destruct
give a fuck about your sins
we about to go all-in!

Talk, talk, talk
but nobody give a fuck
walk, walk, walk
but never far enough
standing still got me kicked in the jaws
so put the pedal to the metal, fuck the law!

I gotta run as fast as I can
it's either sins or regrets so fuck you man!
You Think i'm back but i am
overtaking by a lap

Gotta give all!
Gotta give no fucks!
Be who you are!
('cause only suckaz...)
only suckaz give up!

Only suckaz give up
and that's a fact
if you show up
be built to last x2

Give a fuck about the buck
time to self destruct
give a fuck about your sins
we about to go all-in! x2
Track Name: Misery For A Living - Hang 'Em Up
Drowning in the schematics of social values
the paranoia of being born as a failure
The stereotypes that define modern society
are poisoning the basic roots of humanity

And you struggle for your existence
closing your eyes and keeping the distance
But in the end you're scared to find
that God left you behind

I've dealt with my insecurities
And though they got the best of me
I never felt to bow or kneel
to find a reason to feel real

So light up
the fire inside you
There's no sword
swingin' above you

Grab your demons by the throat
and fucking hang 'em up
Track Name: Oltrezona - Undergrounds Of The Mind
All together as it was something to celebrate or maybe it’s a big funeral
But something has gone wrong because even the priest has stopped praying and he hold the holy bible in his hands
The sky becomes dark like a painting that hides mystery
And everything around freezes and horrifies, so the priest start to pray again

dumb shouts asleep from the wall of thousands lives
Now they wake up to get back what has been stolen from them
Something is changing, but it won’t change ourselves
I hope that all the things that i wish won’t bury me
I hope that all the things around me won’t kill me
I made some mistakes and a lot are still to make
It doesn’t bother me what you say
Be what your fear must
The time of the prayers is finished by now
I see the fear painted in your eyes
i will not die buried here
i will rise from the fall
Track Name: Angler - Trevor
Fuck yourself of dog piss
your annoyance is going to be the death of you
the dark disease will take you in your sleep
cut glass falls in place of rain

WITH NO RESPECT FOR LIFE ITSELF
YOU'RE NOT HERE TO ENTERTAIN US
THERE ARE OTHER WAYS TO GET HIGH
WORTHLESS FUCKING WALKIND DEAD

I don't wanna pay for drugs
Fuck It
I don't wanna pay
Fuck It
Trevor
Fuck It

I'll be waiting for you at the gigs
to look upon as you're truly alive
enough with the bullshits, enough with theese lies
Stop suffering , do not spoil yourself

I don't wanna pay for drugs
Fuck It
I don't wanna pay
Fuck It
Trevor
Fuck It
Track Name: Saudade - Nightbirds
Searching God staring at a bunch of urban lights.
I'm crowding empty streets with the ghosts of who I'm expecting to be.
Tonight they'll soon fade with darkness,
they'll soon fade with darkness.
Not sure if I'm watching a safe landscape or its opposite, in other words me.
I'm surrounded by roars of cars fading away,
I'm overwhelmed by my integrity which screams:
"A bucket can't be filled with the whole oceans water, middle class revolutions are getting older. Conscious and dead's what you deserve, are you leaving home for a fucking lost bet?"

Open sails and black clouds! x2

We're silly corpses laughing at their death, products of caged acknowledgements.
What else? I can't feel my head, barely dead, I can't fill my head full and sad.

Open sails and black clouds!
Track Name: Blankets - Losses
Nothing could save the sacrifices done;
now that confidence has fallen apart;
All is gone, another friendship's broken,
better late than ever after your backstab;

Obstinate to jeer at me despite you're clearly wrong,
It's not the right way to fix the mistakes done for so long,
hearing your firm belief to be right regardless
I'm just pissed off, you're the description of sadness.

You're destined to stay alone.
You're destined to covet someone.

Nothing could save the sacrifices done;
now that confidence has fallen apart;
All is gone, the chances you gambled
better late than ever after your backstab;

It's not easy to forget, it's so hard to let go.
after a disillusion, it smashes up all my decisions.
It's not easy to forget, It's so hard to let go,
How I can forgive? It's a fucking selfdistruction!

you're destined to stay alone. You're destined to covet someone.

and covet someone!
Track Name: On A Ship - Castle Of Cards
Please sir may i have another drink? I can feel the rage growing up, inside of me
Please sir may i have another drink? There’s a man who try to drown his mind, in front of me
Please sir may i have another drink? There’s a story that I have to tell, about him
Please sir may i have another drink? I can’t stay calm seeing this

You stupid piece of crap
You have no right to sob
All of your woes are caused by you
Now you have no right to complain
money was always what your wanted
you never cared who you friends were
even your family was irrelevant for you
and now you are alone, and you deserve it all
do you remember when you were just a child looking at the sky? Staring at the moon, pointing at the stars telling yourself that one day you'd leave all of that shit you did it at the end but that was not enough for you, no you crave more money, more power, more women, more drugs
your wife and children became useless

now you wake up in a cold bed the gray light of the city is your only friend
only sadness live in your heart you are alone in your castle of cards

this is nothing but It’s all you have
Track Name: Noël - Positano
veramente non credevo d'aver lasciato così tante cose nello zaino di scuola / rimasto chiuso per troppo tempo / non c'ho più tempo per sentire i tuoi lamenti / neanche fossi un cane bastonato
Track Name: Storm{O} - D'Istanti
Mi restano addosso i pezzi del tuo odore,
le schegge delle tue dita.

Dal mio letto sento il peso dei tuoi capelli sullo sterno.
Da ognuno di loro una minuscola crepa.

Diminuisce la distanza tra me e te,
aumenta la distanza tra me e l’aria.
Track Name: Zeit - The Walls Of The World
The only thing we can say is
what we're not,
what we don't want.
The impossible is unperceivable
and what we have been building is nothing but its image
raised by the illusion born from the absence.
A further has passed, the other fade away.
The walls of the world I can't grip are drew by the flow.
They really don't care about all this because
when the moment of the third further will come,
of the fourth, of the fifth, of those following
they will watch them fall

as soon as I drop them.

Of the fourth, of the fifth, of those following
they will watch them fall.
"Is not", and all the conceivable negations.
And the only thing left
Is that I'm able to tell.
Track Name: Discomfort - MCCCXIII
To protect and to serve
it is a noble "cause"
Protect who's in need
in this delusion
where everything is upside down
using your head
siding with us
you could make the difference
Too bad that you act exactly
the opposite
Slaves of your master
lobotomized from a fake justice
You protect those who don't need to be protected
You've chosen the enemy side
The easiest side
Track Name: Trent - Nothing
Stillness in my head
Says I'm now ready to die
Seclusion as a choice of life
Means that struggles have no sense

Crammed with expectations
Time flies burning all our hopes
Victims of this needless state
That is not gonna help

-

Nothing is going to help you
No one is going to help you
Nothing I guess no one
