... But Looking Behind Me
A Figure Is Staring At Me
A Demon, Waiting To Twist The Knife?

The Shadow Of Myself?
A Vision From The Future?
Or From A Dark Past Which I Never Lived?

An Unknown Past
But Written In All Of Our Memory

I Consider The Achievements Of Humanity
So Huge And Magnificent
So Great And Impressive
And Beautiful! WHY?
What Are All This around Me?
God Is Unfair, Or I' m Telling Nonsense?
But How Can I Explain This, Which Doesn’t Leave Me open my eyes?
And stare at the beauty that surrounds me
To hear the sounds of the sea
Or taste the sweetfull love?

But Again!
Always Something Stops Me
Tears Me… Only A Thought...

One Thought
One Moment
One Life... And Unique

A Fake Hope, Never Be Real
Illusions Of Humanity
Everything Is Inanimate

Could Everything Be A Lie?
Imaginations Of The Desperate Humanity
And If I Never See The Sun Again?
If I Never See It Again Throwing its Sunshine Over Your Hair?

I' ll Know I lived, I’ ll know I loved

Just A Moment
Just A Thought
To Understand...

One Thought
One Moment
Just One Life... And Unique!
