about

"Fundus Uterus, in Latin is a terminology used in Anatomy. With this work I wanted to describe the violent feeling of severance from the mother's placenta, the exhaustion from the brutality of being, the wounds of love. At the same time, it is an hymn to the womb of the universe , to the nostalgia of returning there, to the redemption from barbarity, to the memories of a unique planet called ZRSHA, an existential revelation on the parallel worlds, that is to say, that you are sitting here, while multiple versions of you could exist in the same room. Some lyrics are in the language of Zarshian. The whole album clearly presents an emotional testimony that has deep references to the work of my beloved writer Virginia Woolf. This is the core of creating my new album.”

Track Name: Asana/Metamorphosis (remastered)
Lyrics in Zarshian language
Track Name: We promised to come back to Earth
I never had this before
it's a solar system far away
a glass sphere aching my eyes
i never had this before
I only go to places of longing eyes
These are the eyes i long to see
clear as the aching glass sphere green as the unripe honey bee
what a delight of sparkling children
monuments of destructed souls, all built with foolishness
and burried with nothingness
i never had this before recognising the end
before it comes
you never had this before until you know that it ends
you never had this before until you know that it ends
you never had this before until you know that it ends
you never had this before until you know that it ends
Track Name: Wounds and Water
your love is like the ocean
it wraps me and rolls me in endless time as if i'm the wound of a dying fsh falling asleep in the water
Track Name: Solaroid
I have a photo of You
deep down in my stomach
your hair
your lips
your eyes
holes of the universe
“you got me fres like you wouldn't , sun
you got me fires like you wouldn't, son
you got me fres like you wouldn't , sun
you got me fres like you wouldn't, son”
Track Name: Satellites
I gaze those fres in the night sky
is it a war or a celebration?
Who can paint the children with blood
or is it a fag on their cheeks
as they 're running?
Who can give me a kiss
that won't be hurting my aching heart as i'm running?
Who can paint the children with blood or is it a fag on their cheeks
as they 're running?
Moment by moment
you return in the core of the mental seed
Moment by moment
you explode in the fault of the mortal sin
Track Name: Eros
(lyrics in Zarshian language)
Track Name: The years, the days, the hours (feat. Theodore)
There can be no more emptiness in empty rooms
never a memory whatever she etches burns the fauces
burns the eyes
strives without oxygen
i can't remember all of my children all of my children
i can't remember all of my children all of my children
No names
no words with warm color i feed them with years you feed me with knives
and we never speak about time no need to speak anymore
i can't remember all of my children all of my children
i can't remember all of my children all of my children
Track Name: Into the waves
The place we called it home
it was a cage
our love that wasn't wrong
it was engaged
the songs , the smiles, all sink into the waves i lose , i fall , i'm nothing,
a voice that failed
These eyes
they looked at me as if i was a mother i'm tied as a rank
the birds are here to smother
the songs , the smiles, all sink into the waves i lose , i fall , i'm nothing,
a voice that failed
the songs , the smiles, all sink into the waves i lose , i fall , i'm nothing,
a voice that failed
Track Name: Yellow Roses
Sunny sunny day what is up today
you call me Mrs Hyde but you burn it all behind
and i can't go through
if this is what you do
you ruin me all the time
i don't want you to be mine
Sunny sunny day
what is up today
you bring me yellow roses then you drop me worst of poses
and now that i'm sure
that this is what you do
though you keep turning in my mind
i can't love you like you're mine
Sunny sunny day what is up today
you call me Mrs Hyde but you burn it all behind
and i can't go through
if this is what you do you ruin me all the time
i don't want you to be mine
Track Name: So long
You, my darling
you never showed me
that you 're always going to be mine
And when i see you
with those other girls
i pretend that it's fne
But i dream of you all the time
with your bitter sweet smile
loving me like i do

So long, my darling
you tried to heal me
but you killed me
with your adorable lie
So long, my darling
a love like this is
will never ever die
