Giulio Rossi Victims Of The Past

LYRICS by Max Evangelisti


 

THE SUN ALSO RISES

Wonder where do we go from here, all this bloody waste
That’s no way to go on, we’ve got to stand for
The life we used to face

Wonder what do they have in mind, all those bloody fools
They keep pushing too far and don’t think they’re wrong
Now this can’t go on

But the time is ripe for change
And I’ll walk on wider space
Meaningful embrace
From the powers that I gaze
Watching the wild doing for us
Like the Sun, like the Stars
They keep burning
Rise, they will rise
From their orbits

Now our very life is at stake, don’t hide from the truth
Where the wild makes the rule, no evil, just good
Draw your conclusions

‘Coz the time is ripe for change
I will walk a wider space
Meaningful embrace
From the powers that I gaze
Watching the wild doing for us
Like the Sun, like the Stars
They keep burning
Rise, they will rise
From their orbits

We wonder ‘bout demons, we wonder ‘bout gods
But that’s on Earth we made a shock
We fill it with venom, we fill it with gall
And we feel no shame at all

Watch the Sun, watch the Stars
They keep burning
Rise, they will rise
From their orbits (ad lib)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Victims Of The Past

Some other day
And the story’s just the same
Seems like I’m under a spell, I can’t break these chains

Ain’t nothing new
I’m still burning here for you
Your empty words resound and give the show away

But now I had enough
Of your pushing me down
I once gave you my world
Got to take up my life’s thread

Victim now
Victim of a past I turn around
I had enough of your lies

Save your love
Save it for somebody else you know
When I’ll be gone you’ll feel down, foolin’

This quiet room
Ain’t nothing good for you
You’re not at ease when you face someone to clear up

It’s such a foolish game
As you keep coming back
The only thing we share
Is coming from the human race

Victim now
Victim of a past that turns around
I had enough of your lies

Save your love
Spare me of your tricks, they wear me out
If I am wrong, prove it now, or get out 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

STREETS OF PAIN

You caught me with your eyes
As brilliant as the sky
I was to skip away
You challenged me to stay

You spent your biggest words
And led me where the rainbows end
I couldn’t say a word
Amazed at all that glow

----------------------------------------------

I - like the fool I’ve always been
Believed your eyes like in a dream
But you let me down and I could hardly pick myself up

And I - started thinking that’s alright
And roamed around like in a dream
the face of despair, I walked the streets of pain

-------------------------------------------------

A gloomy day at home
You reached me with your news
Your feelings made me stay
The day you went away

Shivers went down my spine
As I realised that you were gone
I was feverish inside...
delirious outside

---------------------------------------------

I - never felt that way before
I went out roaming through the night
Vague and confused, despised and alone

I - fought the terror of you gone
How could you tear it all apart?
You let me down, the way the losers do

--------------------------------------------

SOLO

----------------------------------------------

I - never felt that way before
How could you tear it all apart?
You let me down and I could hardly pick myself up

And I - could not get out from this pain
It was too hard to face again
This is no game, but then again
I'll play the same

---------------------------------------------

You caught me with your eyes
You never meant to stay
It was a gloomy day

 

 

 

 

 

WASTING ALL

You came across the big lake
full of your pompous glory
escaping from misery and pain
your old world was burning down

You tried to cheat from the start
and treat us inferior
ignoring all our history and past

Wasting all, you reached your aim
and seized your new found land
And now you are
the rulers of our world
that you keep wasting

Two hundred and eighty years
full of ignoble deeds
merciless till the end
"the only good indian's dead"

You kept on cheating us and
you confined our people
brought us to nowhere
then you let us there

Wasting all, you reached your aim
and seized your new found land
And now you are
the rulers of our world
that you keep wasting all
keep wasting

You treat us inferior
ignoring all our history and past

Wasting all, you reached your aim
and seized your new found land
And now you are
the rulers of our world
that you keep wasting, you keep wasting, you keep wasting
Wasting all
