Canzoni Sparse

Nicola Pisu, 2018

Monsieur il mago

A floating cloak from the sidewalk told us 
"a mask don't laugh but yells you the truth" 
in a carnival of light in june 

we crowned our heads with a eight shaped garland 
we're stepped out the porch and the man raised his hand 

in a carnival of light in june 
we've been turned to stone 
smiles sculpted like two wounds 
just like ruins 
from the golden age 


behind the sound of a silver trumpet 
and a snare drum and a flute made of bone 
in a carnival of light in june 

we've been turned to stone 
smiles sculpted like two wounds 
just like ruins 
from the golden age

Pianura di sale

First floor where you always lived 
not strived too far from your roots 
don’t you dare turn around 
now you’re barefoot where your boots? 
Press for illusion 

Second floor the door is open 
fingers crossed until your room 
on the desk now graze a zoo 
horses runnin' in the hallway 
Press for illusion 

On the last floor no one too 
just a fishbowl in the roof 
red fishes swim in the ceiling 
aiming to where they belong 
Press for illusion

Tanche brulle + Abacrasta

Drips the chocolate from your ice cream cone 
while an airplane fly behind you and breaks your tale 
erasing your past of what you’ve been told 
or was a ship that docked and snorted like a whale? 

A marble moon make a ring of the sun upon the horizon 
right between mercury and mars 
seagulls are on their routes and we wait for the stars 
the daylight fade and overwhelm the past 

You’re a shimmering distant star 
just an almost blasting endless song 
So light and darkness are always built anew 
and so are me and you 
* Minnaloushe creeps through the grass Alone and wise, 
And lifts to the changing moon His changing eyes * 

You’re a shimmering distant star 
just an almost blasting endless song 
that’s not written in your past 
in abiding flow the world in you collapse 
just a phase that it won't last

Toro Capovolto

The stains are no more so don't regret for what is worth 
the passing of days with at least a little happy song 
I know the lawn where you've been led, Veronica 

that remedy worked, and all of the crows are gone 
you’ve left windows open wide to watch if they were dreams or not 
to know if there's a bond between you and them, Veronica 

your cloths soaked in rain so all of the stains are gone 
and swirling like soft rushes they slipped downwards in the pond 
I know there's a bed where no one sleeps, Veronica

Il professore

Little thin Japanese baby 
with worn skirt and green long coat 
Little thin Japanese baby 
you can talk not sayin' a word 
and those words I can't translate 
those words are still in my heart 

And are miles and miles between us and are monsters in the sea
and they lurk and they deceive us, while they wait they sharp their teeth 

Little thin Japanese baby 
you ain't japanese at all 
Little thin Japanese baby 
storing pictures in your drawer 
and those pictures don't mean nothing 
all those faces tell us lies of what we wanted to be 

And are miles and miles between us and are monsters in the sea
and they lurk and they deceive us, while they wait they sharp their teeth 
and if all I missed were you I would haved just followed you some more 
in my DeChirico sundays, empty squares where I got lost 

Little thin Japanese baby 
storing pictures in your drawer 
you ain't japanese at all

Novembre + Tema Girotondo

Please free me from the old constraint fore the cold season they will return 
they've locked my hands but I free my eyes, in this route are not posts telling lies 
"save your friends" says the priestess and hold the clouds with both arms 

now I can see what the images mean: all our outpost are ruined by the fire 
by all those strangers who came from out the town 
with their sermons and crosses and knives 
"leave this path, there's no way, they won’t come out alive" 


clouds all gather round 
leaves will fall down eventually

La strega della guerra

Rumble cat on rainy days 
put your trust in what i say 
Rumble cat my friend, so let’s pretend 

Hunting in the dusk 
Stray cats just like us 
Challenging the strong ones an crawling in the dust 
Rumble cat my friend, so let’s pretend 

Torned blue jean 
and sunken cheek 
in the hour where noone meet 
neither you or me Rumble cat my friend

Nel cielo sia

Friends and shadows in the end 
come together hand in hand 
and now you can talk to me and say "hey how are you?" 
I'm fine thanks, it's just the flu 
and now I just have some headaches 
and now I just have... 

Friends and shadows I've been led astray 
bargaining for freedom, pledgin' to find a way 
to find a new vision of you 
the way you make me feel 
and we shall apart in order to find a cure 
and now I just have some headaches 
and now I just have some headaches 
and now I just have... 

Friends and shadows in the end 
come together hand in hand 
and now you can talk to me and say "hey how are you?" 
"I'm fine thanks, it's just the flu"

Il gallo canta

Well, what about me? I discovered the truth that it still exist 
free from your circle and your sight 
that I learnt to despise 

I play fool to catch wise 
once bitten twice shy 
Now I don't have to think twice, 
because that's all well and good 
but not so kind from you 

Show some respect for the shadow 

I searched for a heaven in earth for you to kiss from me 
where I built a tower and a pit 
I choosen each stone and I sculpted a statue of you relying just on memories 
pullin you out from your disguise and discovering that only bones remain 

Well, what about the gifts, all that boxes from you, they're all made of what you put inside 
well there's something old and new always coming from you 

Show some respect for the shadow

Mirabilis

You hold your breath and count to ten, just do like in the past 
cos there's a means to an end and there's nothin here at hand 

Down in the park, we playin' cards 
and if night comes too soon 
just wait for me and give me another clue to find you 

Only birch stand all around, and you play with a stick 
your scent is different now and I fear what this mean 

Down in the park, we playin' cards 
and if night comes too soon 
another hint of you, another clue
