Can one of our distinguished Italian members or anyone fluent in the language please tell me what is the meaning of this song title - La Mente Vola? And if you know the song, do you know what does it talk about and what the chorus says? I suspect Andrea Cortese could answer this one. your replies are much appreciated.

BTW, it is a great song and a wonderful album as is their second - Dietro L'uragano

I'm keeping this thread alive in case someone does know the answer to this and just did not see it initially.

Anyone?

I have no idea, but the two sample tracks are exactly what I like, I guess I beter investigate Museo Rosenbach and other similar stuff then.  Are these albums easy to find?

You can find the Museo cd's online (I wouldn't count on stores unless it specifies in the genre). Alphataurus is a bit harder to come by but still can be found on ebay and amazon. I had the luck to find it in a small prog music store.

Found it!

Peccato d'orgoglio / Sin of arrogance

You go toward the void without goals by now
don't be afraid, come back with us
you experimented everything, a whole life
in a fake light you created your reality.

Look behind you, who had you been till now?
Make a choice: think about that once more
sin of arrogance has been you know
remember you are a man, you can still exist.

Somebody will help you to restart anew
for whom comes back there's no shame
you believed you had the world in a handful
but a handful of seeds cannot give you the reality.

Look behind you, who had you been till now?
Make a choice: think about that once more.
Sin of arrogance has been you know
remember you are a man, you can still exist.

Dopo l'uragano / After the storm

The Sun lights the shadow
the storm has already passed
I come back to my country
lonely and suffering.

I don't see my people
the streets are desert
I look around me
I feel life going away.

Windmill by now destroyed
you seem to me and old crow
with broken wings
and very eager
to die.

I remain alone
I remain alone alone alone.

The echo of a song
talks about a flower and a stone
and on that stone
another life will be born.

I remain alone
I remain alone alone alone.

Croma / Eighth note

La mente vola / The mind flies

Suddenly you see the Sun.
You breathe the air, you pick a flower
what were you, you don't know anymore
A long avenue, in front of you
immense trees on your walk
There is a reason of living.

The mind flies, you don't know anymore yourself.
Now you know what the wish of praying is
Now you know what the force of hoping is
Over there there is somebody
You look at yourself in a brook, it's really you!

Another winter that goes
your recalls are far away
What's the snow you don't know anymore
A door opens in front of you
The Sun is high, come with us
There is a reason of living.

Ombra muta / Dumb shadow

Like every night
here in my bed
I fall asleep
and your shape comes again
You move your leaps, but you don't speak
Just tell me if you want something from me.

Dumb shadow! ...Speak... Who are you?
Just tell me if God sent you!
But you don't speak... No, you don't say anything
who knows if you live or you already lived.

Suddenly then, I awoke
I had your voice in my mind
"I'm one step far between the shore and the sea
looking at the way to restart again!"

Thanks for that, I shall try and get some Museo Rosenbach and Alphataurus, I was lucky enough to find some MP3s for them, but I'd like the original albums.

Do you perchance have the original Italian lyrics as well?

Sadly no, but I'll see what I can do.

here is the link to this site where there are more translations:

http://www.arlequins.it/translations/translations.asp

Here is the translation of: MUSEO ROSENBACH - Zarathustra

L’ultimo uomo / The last man

Face of light, the told me about you, your story is in the echo of the mountains, too high to descend in us.
In your eternal walk there isn't what you're chasing; without a goal life can exist. It completes itself in one day.
Shabby shadow, empty glare of the ego you don't need to understand the force pushing me to seek in the World.
Bright divine essence already is hiding inside whom is living the game of the time in wait of a different dawn.

Il re di ieri / Yesterday king

No, don't continue the walk in neverending roads; you already see in me what my father, God, learnt to you.
Maybe neither you believe to the one who never created you. Love your land, in her womb God will form.

Al di là del bene e del male / Beyond the good and the evil

Ancient boards, divine wills already divided in time the good and the evil.
The man alone far from God cannot build his own moral. Run away from your will.
Under these veils, fake wisdom, the truth is insulted. From the moral that you created nothing will boost.
Blind in the dogma of your faith you lose the choice of freedom. Grey sunset of ancient lights will have the last man.

Superuomo / Super-man

But too many answers confuse an ancient life. Thousand traditions built a wall around me.
Alone and without forces I get lost in my words and perhaps whom I'm looking for always walked behind me...
Here he's born in me, I live the Super-man.

Il tempo delle clessidre / The time of the hourglasses

Degli uomini / About men

Blood, commands, flags, cities, screams of joy, pain... Why?
Like the Autumn the World wants to wither, it offers swords to the sky overriding the loyalty.
It grows up and in time kills its humanity.

Della natura / About nature

Quietness falls over the night, virgin in its mantle.
The World keeps silent and in it anxiety lives again and the fear that the silence with its void reignites,
suspicious and treacherous in the dark.
Terror, pregnant of magic as it is, makes Death's face come back in mind.
I live alone on the contrary in this reality which pulses strong in the race of a star,
sure to be able to set in a sea of tired fountains, in peace.
I believe and I feel: this is freedom, a river, the wind and this life.
Silence is the sung of real poetry. A child will be born tonight: it's me.
My eyes are tired, I feel by now that I will sleep.
The dawn comes from quietness, virgin in its own mantle, it lives and already thrills.

Dell'eterno ritorno / About the eternal return

Strange omens light my never placed doubts. Do I tie my name to life, to death, to glory?
Unfortunately it's destiny that I don't receive any reply, if I really believe in me.
Life you ask me if I served you faithful; in front of death I didn't recline my head.
Neither for glory I made my face scornful or lordly.
I closed with dignity a day.
But in this space where I set down and another day will be born
and Zarathustra will be able to find the same things here.
But how many times again will the same Sun heat myself?
But how many nights again will I sing the same Moon?
I can't anymore look for a way since the same one I will trace.
I die, without hoping that something then will be born something will change.
By now my future is already there,
the road I will know takes where the man stops and where the Eternal Return reigns.

It's only so I can attempt to sing along to them!  I'm sad.  I shall find some Museo Rosenbach somewhere, I think I know where I can find some...

I know what you mean, I also want to find the lyrics in Italian, because for example La Mente Vola has a very catchy chorus that just makes you want to sing. And such lovely music. My lasr resort would be that I approach my mother in law who speaks Italian. I think I'll make her listen to it and have her teach me the lyrics.

Probably not your thing, but do you know where I can get lyrics for After Crying - De Profundis (this has a catchy chorus too) as well as Alamaailman Vasarat lyrics?  I can't speak Hungarian or Finnish.

I love them both. Never tried to find their lyrics though. Maybe in their official websites.
