Open my eyes I see the light for the first time, down on my knees staring the ground cutted strings dangle from my body. I feel my self and try to recognize me The air is full of bizzarre sound Look around you are in a grottesque musical many puppets dancing drived by tense strings Those puppets resemble me but their gaze seems lifeless I woke upon a stage and don't know why but I want to run away from here The air is full of bizzarre sound Looks ahead an huge crowd are enjoying the show Their looks don't seem brighter than puppets Woke up why? On this stage I need to escape from this puppets theater Woke up why? On this stage I need to escape from this puppets theater Am I part of this act? I don't know nothing about myself lost and confuse trying to sneake away from the stage I want to burn I want to burn Scented slavery, decorated prison Want to cut I want to cut strings and hands SET ME FREE! Keep on dancing, keep on acting, keep on dancing Woke up why? On this stage I need to escape from this puppets theater Keep on dancing, keep on acting, keep on dancing Woke up why? On this stage I need to escape from this puppets theater

Outside 05:00
First step just out of the nest a river of people almost drag me away world is in motion, continuous motion in a vortex of needs, whishes and tasks Drag everyone inside No one cares about you! Outside I am confused! Dubbed ones soon will become mute escaping from the dubbers to the silence Everyone strolling to nowhere without cares about the voiceless puppet! No one notice this voiceless puppet A lost homeless puppet No one notice this voiceless puppet A lost homeless puppet Try to clying to someone in this river of faces but I’m afraid to go beyond their frozen looks Try to clying to someone in this river of faces but I’m afraid to go beyond their frozen looks Metallic howls by mechanical beasts persecute me in this forest of concrete oooooh no one cares about you! oooooh outside I am confused! Driven ones are prone to get lost just after the lack of their driver. Searching for reference point is so hard in the busy ones chaos Everyone bump the stumbling puppet Climbing on the top of this place, I need to find calm and to breathe No one notice this voiceless puppet I didn’t wake up to succumb Well, I’m here and I want to stay From on high I try to fight my fears contempling the living mosaic below me This world both scare and fascinate Moving in a weird dance to whom I behold From on high I try to fight my fears contempling the living mosaic below me This world both scare and fascinate Moving in a weird dance to whom I behold

Shaped Water 05:59
We can feed your mind I have hunger for knowledge We will choose your feeding But my hunger is total We can feed your mind I have hunger for knowledge We will choose your feeding But my hunger is total and my curiosity rumble Going classic, classic, classic, classic Ancient knowledge gives wisdom and brillance Going technic, technic, technic, technic Technic knowledge gives skills and utility But I wanna shape myself how I want But I wanna shape myself how I want We take our children and put them in this breeding where they shape them how society want Prevent them to create for fun, for create to sell teaching just to make perfect social gears Young minds are like mass of water that flowing and try to expand Breeding make the water get freeze in fixed and squared shapes. Nothing is useless to know Go and find out the world Legions of shaped minds march to the future breeded without way of choose Legions of leaded children march to the future without leaving from the formation

Eternal prize, lure for the lucky ones a comfortably illusion if your life has been damn Damn you, scare you Hell awaits who not pay attention to us Damn you, plague you Hell awaits who deny our laws The white collar BDSM man pleased by the fearful attention of his scared children The white collar BDSM man pleased by the fearful attention of his scared children That can't see the filth Stop burning who resemble me You perverts burns all that's went out of your control The white collar BDSM man pleased by the fearful attention of his scared children The white collar BDSM man pleased by the fearful attention of his scared children That can't see the Hidden filth. Stay docile children! Under the gaze of that crucified scarecrow Stay docile children! Under the gaze of that crucified scarecrow

Tar Nectar 03:54
Near to a gate like worker bees Stare their workday Ready to march, on the allarm ring, In its place A grey beehive covered by smokestock and drainpipe Work! Get busy! And work! Hurry up! And work! Don't stop! Let me breath! Task! Your burden! By task! Don't disappoint! By task! You have a chance! This seems like a blackmail Hidden in a spot there's a crocked man The senior worker Blackened is skin, eyes and lungs Why he still working? Love for his family and his dignity Work! Get busy! And work! Hurry up! And work! Dont stop! Let me breath! Task! Your burden! By task! Don't disappoint! By task! You have a chance! This seems like a blackmail

Enough scenes of world passed through this wooden eyes I ask, someone can listen me?! Folks! I have some ideas to fix this broken opera. A smiling face painted everywhere: "We will build a better future" Standing in the main square a waiting crowd Divide in two sides like the red sea Fluttering their own flags Seems is near a war Plastic smile people climb on the stage The crowd go frenzy cheers but for what? Cheers but for what? Cheers but for what? Our leader, our float we will always trail our leader, our float has a bigger cock than yours Everyone right here asking for their ownright shout from left to right Folks! They have some ideas let listen the lawyers: You will have the right to born, work, breed and age, born, work, breed and age, born, work, breed and fucking die. Standing in the main square a waiting crowd Divide in two sides like the red sea Fluttering their own flags, seems is near a war Plastic smile people climb on the stage The crowd go frenzy cheers but for what? Cheers but for what? Cheers but for what? Our leader, our float we will always trail our leader, our float has a bigger cock than your Crowd, masked with shit by the carnival of pigs Porks with human features in the carnival of pigs

Climbing towards the top without fear for the height of the truth Hard is to rise above the crowd's noise that shake your mind A tangle of wills float in the air hidden from the people sight Bilions strings are coming and going to form the master/slave knot Bilions strings are coming and going to form the master/slave knot We are all bounded to the strings of our wills We are all masters, everyone make the strings We are all bounded to the strings of our wills We are all masters, everyone make the strings The knot collect everyone will Casually mixing them until none of the original strings is equal to those that send to us All our act changing something influencing the knot in minimal part virtue and guilt, blended togheter, all us identity lost virtue and guilt, blended togheter, all us identity lost in equality We are all bounded to the strings of our wills We are all masters, everyone make the strings We are all bounded to the strings of our wills We are all masters, everyone make the strings

about

A Strings' Dramedy is a concept album characterized by an allegorical, and at times grotesque critique of society. It tells the story of a puppet coming to life in the middle of the theatrical act he was used for. Suddenly all the strings it was tied to tear off and, from a situation of slavery and unconsciousness, the puppet is tossed in the absolute freedom; all that will influence its perception of the world it sees. Starting from its first steps in this unknown world, to end up with its wish to be a part of such a lively and dynamic world. All this will push it to experience the various stages of growth and integration within the society, thing that will be impossible to achive for the character because of its tendency to see the reality through distorted eyes, in its view social structures appears to be wiked and populated by grotesque characters, whose behavior is unintelligible and irrational.

The puppet's allucinated vision of society will push it on brink of insanity, tha will almost make it wish to go back on stage, tied and unconscious.
But is it truely it's vision the distorted one? Or maybe it's point of view, totally pure and free, is able to see the true intents of people?!
The musical inspirations for A Strings' Dramedy is a Folk / Death Metal with strong symphonic components, that is alternated to violent rhythms, epical-like choirs, folk phrasing and many other influences.
