Demo: song

Lyrics: Dorit Weintal. Composition: Simone Giacomini. Singer: Cristina Grifone.

This body has left

its coat
its skin
its mischievous

identity

behind lies

an old entity

the residue of this body

remains
unpolished
a disturbing insistence

a primal

lust
for life
for the fear
for the exuberance

that cannot be

demolished

a shed skin
much longer than the snake that sheds it

a shed skin
of a snake
that turns bluish just before it sheds and

its eyes opaque, blocking the view
I see myself
I see myself
a primal
lust
for life
for the fear
for the exuberance
that cannot be
demolished
...
