NOT EVEN A BIKE

Another day (I’m too tired for this), another night Another bill (I’m too tired for this), another fight Another chance (I’m too tired for this), another fail Another step (I’m too tired for this), another fall While I could fly across the sky and while I wish I was alive Another climb (I’m too tired for this), another hope Another way (I’m too tired for this), another light I just hope I’ll make it through the night, I just hope I’ll make it through the night... How long will the fire burn before it rains again? How far will I have to walk with broken knees? While I could fly across the sky and while I wish I was alive Another day (I’m too tired for this), another night Another bill (I’m too tired for this), another fight Another chance (I’m too tired for this), another fail Another step (I’m too tired for this), another fall I just hope I’ll make it through the night, I just hope I’ll make it through the night... ---------- MEANING: Life can be very hard at times, you feel you’ll never be able to face yet another problem, yet another difficulty... All you can do is take one step at a time, one day at a time, one problem at a time. Somehow, you always make it, eventually

Why do we fight? Why do we say all those nasty things? What do we feel? Why don’t we just say what we feel? Our egos are always in our way It’s our fears that make us fight Why don’t you just talk? Why don’t you open to my soul? Why don’t we use this gift we were given and turn our souls into words that we can understand? What do we think? We can’t find peace within such hate The words you say are the only way to understand you Whatever you’re trying to defend, are you sure I want to attack? Why can’t we just merge through the words that we can use and learn about each other? You can’t hate what you know! Just give your words to me and who cares who’s right or wrong... ---------- MEANING: Fights only happen when there is lack of communication, or when an error in communication occurs. If we just open ourselves, explain our reasons with the sole purpose of understanding each other, if we listen to the other person’s reasons without judging, but only trying to truly understand their reasons, there can’t be any conflict. It might not be an easy process, but if our intentions are honest and what we really want is peace, then we can get it. We just have to learn to use words, this wonderful gift we have been given. However, way too often people just use it to hurt, as opposed to trying to understand each other. I feel very sad when I see that most people are still trapped by their egos in trying to prove they are “right” and the others are “wrong,” like hysterical children only driven by their fears and insecurity. Being right or being wrong is totally irrelevant, we should only focus on finding solutions, and peace. That is all that counts. Don’t attack, don’t hurt, use the gift of speech to explain what you think and feel, and listen carefully and open-mindedly when others do the same. God, the Universe, Evolution or whatever you believe in have given us this gift so we can touch one another’s soul and become one. Don’t be afraid to be hurt. Don’t use this gift to hurt: if you do, you will be spitting on it and on the Entity that gave it to you.

Now that western angels have fallen down wings are broken Now that fear is faster than any hope, nothing left to save No discussion and no fight could ever turn the tide The tower now is crumbling down Nothing to save, nothing but hurts and chains Nothing to save, slaves to our own disgrace Now that eastern clouds’ radioactive rain falls on ruins of what used to be castles made of sand Tidal waves of grief sweep the planet and fill the eyes of those who still can see, beyond the clouds, what could have been Nothing to save, nothing but hurts and chains Nothing to save, slaves to our own disgrace Nothing to save, your wings are broken now Nothing to save, angels are falling down ---------- MEANING: Humanity has been pushing it too far and for too long. While a part of me still dares to hope, the rest of me believes that it’s too late and even if humanity understood its errors and finally evolved to what it should have been for millennia now, it would be too late to turn things around. Everything we could have had is gone now, there is nothing left to save...

Nothing more and nothing less Useless words, but I digress Couldn’t see your eyes and reasons why you gave me all this light, and I... I’ll keep on crawling along the road that is my own till I find you Now that lands are drifting by and the sky’s no longer blue I feel the ground is getting drier It’s the end of this strange story, and I... I’ll keep on crawling along the road that is my own till I find you (x2) Diving, diving into light... While the gas was catching fire and the house was crashing down it’s your words that kept it standing, brick by brick you made it solid, and... I shouldn’t forget that, on the road that is my own when I find you I’ll keep on crawling along the road that is my own till I find you I’ll keep on walking along the road that is my own till I find you I’ll keep on running along the road that is my own till I find you Diving, diving into light... --------- MEANING: We all lose people along the way. We have fights, different opinions, choices that separate us. Sometimes we even think that people we respected are actually worthless fools and what we felt and thought before was all a blunder. We’ll never meet some of them again, while others might even come back into our lives. However, it is very important not to forget what they did for us. Don’t let hate or rage or any other negative feeling you might have make you forget the things – even the small ones – you should be grateful for. Gratitude is a fundamental and very noble emotion we should all cherish and cultivate. Even when you are angry with someone, think of what they did for you and be genuinely grateful for it: you’ll find out hate becomes harder, maybe even impossible, and you’ll be clear-minded enough to see that the other person is just a human being. At that point, you will be able to forgive and you will feel much better, without negative thoughts polluting your existence. Be grateful.

(please refer to this page for notes about this series macofbionight.bandcamp.com/track/introduction-to-the-just-music-series )

What's an empty bicycle path got to do with some vocal, more or less 80's-sounding music? I don't know and I couldn't explain, but then that's what happens every time my uncle and personal photography teacher Domenico "Sem" Semeraro sends me one of his photos and says "this is for one of your albums". I look at it and it instantly turns into music in my head. Every time I know exactly what I have to do, what music I will record, and every time it's an amazing journey, guided by his incredible pictures.
Check out his website and his great photos here domenicosemerarofoto.jimdo.com if you like what you see, leave him a message in the "contacts" section.

TOO TIRED FOR THIS

Life can be very hard at times, you feel you’ll never be able to face yet another problem, yet another difficulty... All you can do is take one step at a time, one day at a time, one problem at a time. Somehow, you always make it, eventually.


WORDS AND FIGHTS

Fights only happen when there is lack of communication, or when an error in communication occurs. If we just open ourselves, explain our reasons with the sole purpose of understanding each other, if we listen to the other person’s reasons without judging, but only trying to truly understand their reasons, there can’t be any conflict. It might not be an easy process, but if our intentions are honest and what we really want is peace, then we can get it. We just have to learn to use words, this wonderful gift we have been given. However, way too often people just use it to hurt, as opposed to trying to understand each other. I feel very sad when I see that most people are still trapped by their egos in trying to prove they are “right” and the others are “wrong,” like hysterical children only driven by their fears and insecurity. Being right or being wrong is totally irrelevant, we should only focus on finding solutions, and peace. That is all that counts. Don’t attack, don’t hurt, use the gift of speech to explain what you think and feel, and listen carefully and open-mindedly when others do the same.
God, the Universe, Evolution or whatever you believe in have given us this gift so we can touch one another’s soul and become one. Don’t be afraid to be hurt, and don’t use this gift to hurt: if you do, you will be spitting on it and on the Entity that gave it to you.


NOTHING TO SAVE

Humanity has been pushing it too far and for too long. While a part of me still dares to hope, the rest of me believes that it’s too late and even if humanity understood its errors and finally evolved to what it should have been for millennia now, it would be too late to turn things around. Everything we could have had is gone now, there is nothing left to save....





DIVING INTO LIGHT (gratitude)

We all lose people along the way. We have fights, different opinions, choices that separate us. Sometimes we even think that people we respected are actually worthless fools and what we felt and thought before was all a blunder. We’ll never meet some of them again, while others might even come back into our lives. However, it is very important not to forget what they did for us. Don’t let hate or rage or any other negative feeling you might have make you forget the things – even the small ones – you should be grateful for. Gratitude is a fundamental and very noble emotion we should all cherish and cultivate. Even when you are angry with someone, think of what they did for you and be genuinely grateful for it: you’ll find out hate becomes harder, maybe even impossible, and you’ll be clear-minded enough to see that the other person is just a human being. At that point, you will be able to forgive and you will feel much better, without negative thoughts polluting your existence. Be grateful.

Mac of BIOnighT Italy

I was one half of BIOnighT (a Berlin School duo that split in 2011) for twelve years. I've always recorded my own stuff, though, lots of it and in no one genre. So make sure to check out all of my albums on Bandcamp, at least one is bound to belong in a genre you like!
You can also find plenty more on my website. My music is also available for licensing, just contact me macnight@inwind.it
