Ti ho visto piangere mio Dio Nei ruscelli avidi di mare Nei torrenti impetuosi d'amare Nelle cascate plananti petali di pesco Nelle pozzanghere di luridi vicoli Nelle fogne ove i sogni finiscono Ma ora non piangere ti offro la mia spalla amica Finché il tempo lo vorra' Perché tu che non puoi morire Soffri per me in eterno

I haven't slept since you've been gone And every day I do something wrong Waiting for your scolding Without results You should be proud of all the tears I cried You always tried to be that sort of brand new Jesus Condemned to live You've introduced me to a different world Where guitar weeps and noise is law It really impressed me But then you passed away Our family was too ordinary I always tried to be the wild child of the wind To blow against your face No matter what you said All the time we spent there In our private sanctuary is what I'm trying to forget I would try to rehab From those memories The rock & roll Is the only thing I've got The more it hurts The more I like to spin in that whirl That brings me pain Now I'm living with my twisted mind Because only to surprise me You thrown me away Nevermore your prey
3.
Nevermore 03:13
I Just want to be alone I don't care about the world All your lies sound the same to me Try to walk here in my shoes Try to be the one who'll lose try to spend a day like me and you will see All my family passed away I remember them no more and I don't even know myself, oh no Years are running without me The only thing I care to see Is this empty box full of memories Nevermore is what you told me Nevermore is what you gave me Nevermore and now I'm feeling Nevermore so sick and lonely You load me, you load me down All the words you say bring me deeper down You raise me up to put me down Everything you say just makes me frown Just one thing I know for sure No one will write songs like I do that gonna shake your world through and through if my dreams have been maimed I'm not the only one to blame Fame's what I deserve, for all this pain I know I have to find a way I can’t stop knocking at your door Somebody show me the direction home If you don’t know where to go You’ll never ever reach your goal Stuck forever, waiting in this hole
4.
I Hate to watch your TV show Where you play shit that they call gold And everything tastes so old I'm pretty sure that I won't fail My songs are better than this shame I really have to find a way To show the world who I really am If only I could have a chance I'm sure that I would kick some ass An artist sees and an artist does But There's no art inside of you You are on TV and I feel blue I Found a way to reach success It's what the show kindly suggests I have to scare to be the best I guess the only way I have to prove to the world who I really am is going out to kill a man Yes this will be my goddamn chance I'll reach success killing a man and from the jail I'll kick some ass I'm pretty sure that I won't fail The goddamn show is my own aim Let's go out and kill for fame!
5.
Work hurts and doesn't make any sense Sometimes people work just to be cooler My work is to kill someone but I don't know how to commence Why do you insist and keep running? I just want to be funny I've taken from the wardrobe my best leather jacket I've put some pins on it just to be cooler I'm Waiting at the bus stop for the right one to kill Why do you insist and keep running? I just want to be funny I will cut your pretty throat in two Looking for a victim for my success plan I've found this rich girl that makes me feel cooler I don't have to kill cause she's got money to spend Tell me why do you say that you love me? Now I feel a bit fuzzy How do you know I'm a great artist too? Yeah Now I feel a bit fuzzy
6.
An Horizon Another bird is falling Will you catch me if I fall? A forest another worm is crawling Will you feed me if I crawl? A black hole another planet's dying Will you save me if I explode? A baby another soul is living Will you kill him for our love? I Know I Know there's something wrong, with me I Know There will be something wrong, forever And It will break you A Dying man Another soul is leaving Will you save me if I choke? A Fire Useless things are burning Will you use me if I shall burn? A body Another woman kisses me will you suffer if I'll be wrong? A Dumb man a million lies unspoken will you accept me if I won't talk?
7.
There is something I still don't know If a cut throat is better than a stab If it would be better to kill my girl Or it would be better to kill myself Too many choices, too many roads and I'm a pro at choosing the wrong turn being caster of my own disaster Please master let my life go faster She's my baby Be my baby Be my bloody baby and maybe I will be your man Time passes, that's no good if there's someone who decides for you No more lessons every day No more worries, on my case I've only tried to express myself but she annihilates with no regrets She's the one but not the one that I want when I'm with her It's like being on my own She's my baby Be my baby Be my bloody baby and maybe I will be your man

Become You 03:40
Living for tomorrow Trying to be an Artist searching for the mainline Hiding being a fascist Looking for tomorrow Barking at the moon The girl I wanted to kill Will help me to get through Destroy yourself for somebody Won't ever be something good I offered to all of you all my best I suffered and now I have become you Being so sensitive Never helped anybody that's the way she loves me I'm trapped inside her heart She planned everything I'm pretty useless now She will promote my music She has bought my art
10.
Space 03:40
Space Space Space Did I need all this space? No more sun shines on my face Face Face Face I'm obsessed by your face Don't know how It's in every place Now I've learned that I must not wish and I mustn't adore something that I don't know I don't want to spend my life with you An artificial love with artificial screws Grace Grace Grace All I need is some grace from this life that spits in my face Brace Brace Brace I can't move with this brace this Filthy ring freezes all my days Ti ho visto piangere mio Dio Nei ruscelli avidi di mare Nei torrenti impetuosi d'amare Nelle cascate plananti petali di pesco Nelle pozzanghere di luridi vicoli Nelle fogne ove i sogni finiscono Ma ora non piangere ti offro la mia spalla amica Finché il tempo lo vorra' Perché tu che non puoi morire Soffri per me in eterno Now I know that I was fine before when I was waiting for the joy of the world I hardly tried to be fine with you but I don't like your scent and your silly look I hate your face I hate the way you move Your breath stench and I hate our children too
11.
Let Me Feed 03:20
The lion of the grey plumage is shitting on me The lion of the red plumage is eating with me Big Nose is telling me to change direction The suffocation won't let me feed I Hope to be the winner With the golden frog The frog will be the runner with the holy toast He lives inside my pillow and in his neighbourhood The food that I eat from him is always good I need food to live And poison to kill Emotions to feel Lies to hide tears to cry for someone who dies The cook with the Chinese eyes is bringing me down Don't think that an ant cannot find his sound The spirit of the ancient sweat is talking for me Letters made of ink tonight let me feed I need food to live And poison to kill Emotions to feel Lies to hide tears to cry for someone who dies
12.
Tired 04:38
Now I feel so empty Now I feel confused If only I could say I love you too You took me from your wardrobe You put on your best shoes I'm just a puppet that does what you do If happiness is gold And sadness for you is cool Within this empty space I lie for you Once I was a genius You threw me among the stars The light that I reflect is what you are Every little baby Is beautiful I know But when they grow up Where do they go? You chose to be a mom I chose to be alone The loss of death is like the gain of birth If I could find someone who won't believe in me Will I be a new man? Will something be wrong with me? If I could find a way out To leave you and set me free Will I walk again On the path of destiny? All you have to do is hope to be lucky fingers crossed and then you plan your next move An overrated thing in life is being lucky People hope that God could choose for them too I Never gave a damn about being lucky And now I stand and I don’t know what to do Although people say that I’ve been born lucky I'm desperate now and I don’t know what to… DO! If I could find someone who won't believe in me Will I be a new man? Will something be wrong with me? If I could find a way out To leave you and set me free Will I walk again On the path of destiny?

Falling 06:31
Darling do you know the news from today, you will feel good Tomorrow I will be don't know where maybe this, could leave you scared Your perfection in disguise could find a new love you know, it works sometimes ‘Cause Now I know what it is to be engaged with my own disease You were afraid for our children afraid for all my sins afraid for all the voices that scream inside of me I'm afraid of our children Afraid of all your pills If I stay for one more day I guess I'll break your fucking head in two Do you really wanna know the truth? It's that now I'm falling and no one can hear me calling I really don't know how to get through 'Cause now I'm falling and no one could try to save me The only thing I know is that you bet on the wrong horse Now I'm really afraid to live with you to be with you Now I should really go don't stop sleeping and let me flow Good bye and remember me as the biggest mistake that you ever loved You were afraid for our children afraid for all my sins afraid for all the voices that scream inside of me I'm afraid of our children Afraid of all your pills Don't blame me if you stopped taking care of me You were afraid for our children afraid for all my sins afraid for all the voices that scream inside of me I'm afraid of our children Afraid of all your pills If I stay for one more day I guess I'll break your fucking head in two Do you really wanna know the truth? It's that now I'm falling and no one can hear me calling I really don't know how to get through 'cause now I'm falling and no one could try to save me Do you really wanna know the truth? It's that now I'm falling and no one can hear me calling The only thing that I know is that you bet on the wrong horse now I'm really afraid to live with you to be with you

This Album is dedicated to Lou Reed

CRIMSON WITHIN – The Concept
Once upon a time there was Reality. Then people realized that it was too horrifying and started to live in an imagination. Country yokels began to entertain everyone with their philosophy, and elders began to suck the life out of the lips of young celebrity-seeking maidens. No matter if the clothes weren’t clean or well made, the most important thing was to parade, day after day. Businessmen got a grip on the rules of the game and started to raise fake rebellions, fake needs, fake awards and fake ranks. Everyone started to believe they had something interesting to say and everyone was fascinated by other people’s lives. Yet, not all people had the right to have a say and in the name of freedom a chaos of useless thoughts, filled with sex, violence and silicone, finally arose.I was one of the few who could afford the luxury of speaking my mind, but I was not allowed to. Or at least, not the way I wanted to. ‘Cause when my parents died I saw their blood and I realized that it was not red, but crimson. I had the crimson within. I was different, not just like anyone else who had red blood. My blood was slightly different, it was crimson. I knew for sure, although I couldn’t see it.
Everything slowly changed when I realized that my parents left me alone. Nevermore shall I see them? I was scared; I was too extraordinary for this world. I was an artist. The goddamn shows on TV made ​me realize that even though I was a great artist, I had to come up with something shocking in order to become famous. That was when, as I was feeling fuzzy, I realized that I had to kill someone. A “killer artist” was exactly what I needed to become known. I ran into so many show-offs; they made me sick, they were so pathetic I couldn’t even kill them. But one of them, a woman I met, gave me what I was looking for. She was rich! But by then, nothing made any sense anymore. I did my best to get rid of her,but it was too late. She swore eternal loyalty, and. When I asked if she could kill our children for our sake, she said “yes”. I started to feel like a crawling worm. As if I no longer had a purpose in life. My bloody baby had become the woman of my downfall! I had become you, my beloved! Every piece of my art was like her. We had a family, we had a big house, I had finally reached success. But I felt alone. Did I really need all that space for myself? I hated that damn woman, but I pretended to love her. ‘Cause as long as I was with her, I could be a star. I was trapped in a vicious circle, the more I loved her the more success I had, but the less my art made sense to me. I was going mad. I realized I was unable to feed myself because she didn’t let me feed! I felt like crying and I started to freak out. I was tired, I was spoiled, I needed to disappear and be forgotten. Falling into nothingness.

metibla Roma, Italy

METIBLA is a one-man project set up in 2003 by video maker Riccardo Ponis (author, among others, of music videos for bands, such as KARDIA, INFERNO, V FISIK HALL OF SHAME) who, basking in his existential sadness and in the signs of a sociopathy that would worsen in the years to come, creates compositions that are hard to define. ... more
