Luminal – “Io Non Credo” – English Lyrics

LUMINAL  – “IO NON CREDO” – LYRICS TRANSLATED IN ENGLISH

Ladies and gentlemen from the prosecution (Signore e Signori dell’Accusa)

I tried to break free and freedom brought me back to myself

i tried to accuse myself and the prosecution brought me back to myself

but there’s nothing different, nothing different and therefore

nothing is more different, nothing is more different than this

there’s something inside my body it moves my hands

and it only ends when I die

I don’t know what it is, you stay away from me

stay away from me, but there it stays

and it’s been so long since I had a desire

that I don’t know if I ever had one

and it’s been so long since I had a desire

I don’t know if I ever had one

My revolution is more unreal than me

My revolution is more unreal than me

and any other man is more unreal than me

and you, you, you are more unreal than me too

My lawyer told me, my love

lower your tone

you ain’t got nothing to prove, my love

lower your tone

I know it’s true

but I don’t believe it

“I have lived my life”

is just an expression: try again and again not to go mad

I know it’s true

but I don’t believe it

I don’t believe (Io Non Credo)

I don’t believe

in reality I don’t believe

in words I don’t believe

in your closed eyes I don’t believe

I don’t believe

in the father and the mother I don’t believe

in the holy ghost I don’t believe

in secession I don’t believe

the only thing I expect

is to live through the desert

is for my thought to be steady

and for my life to step an instant back

I believe

In abandonment I believe

in shame I believe

in absence I believe

I believe

in lack I believe

in guilt I believe

in misunderstanding I believe

I don’t believe

I have nothing and I don’t believe

I can’t talk and I don’t believe

I can’t sing and I don’t believe

We can live (Si Può Vivere)

You were never mad

said the man following me

he never had eyes

he was just red in the face

he constantly watched my back

and spoke without shouting

he never had anything

he always agreed with me

he’ll live on

if I live on

You were never crazy

said the man and he was serious

he never made any noise

I didn’t hear him coming

he would talk in my head

and beg me everyday

don’t ever let me go

I have only you to feel

he’ll live on

if I live on

It’s not over yet, babybule (Non E’ Ancora Finita, Babyblue)

The things I said to you and I didn’t mean to say

those I did to you and I shouldn’t have done

they stay still and listen

they stay still and wait

hours spent not to forget, time holds still

i don’t know what to say anymore

I live in hell not to forget

that the wrong I did might never die

It’s not over yet, babyblue

I know that pain and evil are one

and that evil is the offspring of my desire

I can’t stop

I don’t want to stop

and I won’t stop

The day on the hill (The Day On The Hill)

The day has begun, you don’t know that we die

you don’t know that light stays light

even in a shaky dawn

even in a deserted road

Can’t you see? They are leaving, together

The voice tells: is the man that doesn’t exist

he changes a thousand times (and only one)

if he happens to read his own palm he drops dead with envy at once

he is left alone

and runs on

Nothing special (Niente Di Speciale)

I should have known that who has no will won’t live

but I had fears and no dreams, I had fears and no dreams

I should have known, it’s not bad if I have nothing to say

I have said everything in my sleep already

I remember saying very little

does anyone here know what’s wrong with me?

I feel like I’m falling, what’s wrong with me?

I feel like drinking, what’s wrong with me?

it’s nothing special

I’m nothing special

it’s nothing special

it’s nothing special

I have nothing special

it’s nothing special

I have nothing special

nothing special

I should have known

“yesterday” is just an expression

but I lost track of “today”

it’s odd to talk about “today”

I saw myself leave,

turn back, look at me and not utter:

I had fears and no dreams, I had fears and no dream

Alle gegen alle

Who gives life gets a voice in return

who is alone knows no peace

down the shore the corpse talks

its role dies, the man never does

evil is only allowed to a very good friend

who knows the right time to go and to wait

All against all: it’s the masses who lost, it’s the Man who won

god slows down, stops and spies on him

the voice sounds pained but the Man schemes,

hides himself but he still doesn’t leave

evil is only allowed to that very friend

that knows when to choose

and then go back

The last night (L’Ultima Notte)

Night lived in a ditch

she told me: stay still and learn

don’t you know I can look

into the sun with my eyes open

I asked her one day

I’m a step away, but I feel I’m falling back

She answered I’m cold, I can’t wait

I don’t know if it’s true, but it’s how I feel

I don’t believe in anything but the air around me

the mother, the sky, the overtake

I would shout time is a duty

but she would swallow the wind

and watch the world happen

At the end of the day I asked her

why do they all talk at the same time

she answered I’m cold

I can’t listen

And now she turns back to herself

form is the only pain

Everybody cries it’s over (Tutti Gridano E’ Finita)

She already knows what not to do, she knows it’s not going to be easy

and she quit and learnt a hundred a thousand times already

what not to do when you’re lost and it’s not funny

what to do if you stop and watch god leave

everybody cries it’s over

everybody laughs you’re over

everybody cries it’s over

I have changed the prayer, now it’s a curse

I have forgotten the words, now it’s a curse

but the hours are not endless, we have already forgotten the name

all songs written by Alessandra Perna & Carlo Martinelli
