lyrics

I've been sinking down with the ship I used to lead, deeper that the Marianas Trench,
while something lacked within me:
a scope. After the rain, the calm, a gap in the clouds,
the light of the sun that enshrouds me.

Once, I
dreamed
to be carried away by a man, who found my body, dead, hanged to the
mast.
A violent epilogue, to me the most peaceful end.

Back then,

I saw Polaris fade through the mist
and lost the landmarks to draw the route,
so I sat, lowered motion, for I remembered: "If the bottle does not break, ..."

Oh, sometimes I still wonder if
it's real, all I eye,
and answers, something I can not find.

While the tissues white were waving wistfully to consecrate the sailing, I was not sure whether I would reach the subsequent port, so I made a solemn pledge to myself:
to remember, the night before, the soothing words of a friend, who said:
"... guarda il cielo."

I've cast it with strenght, it
did not break.
The tide rises and I
start to shake.

To someone the worst of latter ends, to me, in retrospect, the most blissful event.
In the eye of the storm is where I am

right now.

But as Polaris fades through the mist,
the compass stings paper and draws the route
so I stand on the ocean, beholding my whole world, facing it again.
The squall led to shipwreck
but I've been Robinson Crusoe.
