about

The first Orient Express release is an emotional trip full of suggestion, which combines hypnotic moments to obsessive and cutting accelerations, straight riffs and inspired melodies, in a clear Motorpsycho, God Machine mood, with strong references to psychedelic 70’s Rock scene. The sound of the band, dragged by the rhythmic section, is getting more kaleidoscopic since the introduction of the synthesizers, that enriches the expectant and dark atmospheres, and emphasizes the emotional, expanded and chasing progressions. Have a nice trip!

“People are becoming deaf because the music is played ever louder, but because of they’re becoming deaf, the music have to be played ever louder“ (Milan Kundera)

Track Name: Eternal Child
ETERNAL CHILD
(music by Orient Express / lyrics by Paolo Ormas)

Tracks of memories
Remaind me of better time
When i was a child
The world was right for me
Everything i made
Experience for my life
Writing a destiny
Running on the past
And i’m running all the time
And i’m running all the time
My eyes reveal a deep desire
Inside me a child that lives
And i’m running all the time
Running all the time
Track Name: Madness
MADNESS
(music & lyrics by Orient Express)

Madness side
Your great delight
Catch the shadows of your rage, passin' trought the walls of pain unhurt

Fire walks with me
Fire walks with me

Know your rights and kill your past
Forget the time before this life, listen to the voice inside your head

Fire walks with me
Fire walks with me
Track Name: Illusion
ILLUSION
(music by Luigi Doronzo / lyrics by Paolo Ormas)

Did you see, my skin is blamed
Ride on me, consume my flame
Come and flow, It's fast and strong
It's my choice with pride and tears
All this faith
Illusion
Feed my needs
Confusion
Show me how forgive the fear
What it seems cannot be true
Just a phase to wish this test
Gallery without way out
All this faith
Illusion
Feed my needs
Confusion
Can see the light at the end of way
See the light
Track Name: Prison Head
PRISON HEAD
(music by Orient Express / lyrics by Paolo Ormas)

A forced smile upon this face
This think so real is sadness feel
My head's prison kept me to think
I saw my dreams begin to die

When i’ve seen you in front of me
My shorth breath stops is work
This frozen heart resume is beat
I saw my mind fallen in love.

Tell me now, tell me why, we can’t hope tonight
Track Name: Rats Know
RATS KNOW
(music by Luigi Doronzo / lyrics by Luigi Doronzo, Beppe Massara)

So many times
across the bridge
i ask to myself
when I'll see her again
Drive and drive
trough the legs
houses and statues
i was lookin' at them
hungry hungry hungry
and my thoughts were part of the buildings
my thoughts were part of the paints
rats know my dreams
rats know my wishes
and my thoughts were part of the buildings
my thoughts were part of the paints
rats know my dreams
rats know my wishes
you can't find me at all anywhere
you can't find me at all anywhere
and my thoughts were part of the buildings
my thoughts were part of the paints
rats know my dreams
rats know my wishes
Track Name: Ten Drops
TEN DROPS
(music by Luigi Doronzo / lyrics by Paolo Ormas, Luigi Doronzo, Beppe Massara)

Time, master of my mind
Tyrant of my thoughts
Sign upon my face
Reason of my shame

Will you cry for your past?
When you're tired for your life
Leave all the things fall
Can you see the horse?

Land time is not a land
The lake where i drown
Echo of ten drops
I' m not that guy

Will you cry for your past?
When you're tired for your life
Leave all the things fall
Can you ride the horse?
Such a shame
Track Name: First Dawn
FIRST DAWN
(music by Orient Express / lyrics by Vito Digiovanni, Paolo Ormas)

I've been looking for you in the land of tears
I've said many lies for you

I used to live without fear climbing up the walls
I refused the truth for you
Now I kiss my self
Lickin' all my scars
Walking in the dark, through the shadows of the past
Thinking of my faults for you

I've gone back on my steps stumbled on my shit
One more chance is what I've lost
Now I kiss my self
Lickin' all my scars
Stone by stone until
I'll reach my first dawn

I've swallowed bitter words, forgetting of the taste
I've drunk judah's blood for you
Acting like a mask, smell of gin around
I've swept away my better days
Now I kiss myself
Lickin' all my scars
Stone by stone untill
I'll reach my first dawn
Track Name: Hidden Man
HIDDEN MAN
(music by Orient Express / lyrics by Paolo Ormas)

Like an hidden man
Want to disappear
Too many secrets, feel the pain
Want another life
Nothin' to save
No more lies, no place for us
Let me slide away
Let me slide away
Fallin' to pieces, forget to be a man
Far away from here
Let me live alone

Nothin' to do
Let me show you what i want

Let me slide away
Let me slide away
Track Name: Today
TODAY
(music by Luigi Doronzo / lyrics by Paolo Ormas)

I was bored of this life
all the troubles in my mind
Lazy hours, winter time
And I'm thinkin' i'd better go away
Waiting for someone or something
Trying to become wiser and maybe tomorrow

Choose happiness or drink alone
Simply waiting for a sign
To spend the rest of my life

Now. today. I know. Everyday I steal my time,
just for a trespass, hide this crime
but I'm doing alright
I'm loosing my soul, day by day
I know the people, i can see them
But I don't listen to their words
And I'm thinkin' I'd better go away
Waiting for someone or something
Trying to become a wiser and maybe tomorrow

Choose hapiness or drink alone
Simply waiting for a sign
To spend the rest of my life

Now. today. I know. Everyday I steal my time,
just for a trespass, hide this crime

but I'm doing alright
Now. today. I know
Now. Today
Track Name: Euphoria
EUPHORIA
(music by Orient Express / lyrics by Vito Digiovanni, Paolo Ormas)

Touch me, deceive me
Soiled with my blood
Steals me in my soul what no there inside

Look at me, dip yourself
Want escape the truth
Face that have a strange feeling
Let me understand

Object of your madness ecstatic euphoria
Around me in the air music i dont care

You can face me again today
I think this life is cruel
A brand new day begins

You convince me when you want
Will not get tired myself
There’s still a little fire

You can break my hearth today
Your violence think so cool
Can make a little smile.......
