about

Troppo spesso non abbiamo alcuna consapevolezza dei fili che ci legano, vincolandoci senza far rumore.
Partono dal nostro corpo ed esplodono intorno, ancorandosi a una persona, un ricordo, un impegno o un lavoro, altre volte a uno sbaglio, un sorriso, una ferita, uno stato mentale.
WIRES, il secondo album dei 7 TRAINING DAYS, parla di tutto questo, ma soprattutto racconta come distruggere questi fili, per liberarsi e guardare avanti, vivendo nel presente, aderenti a ciò che si è davvero, nel profondo.
WIRES è la forbice tra le tue mani, è il coltello affilato che brandisci sorridendo, è la decisione che ti girava in testa da una vita, quella che non avevi la forza di prendere.
WIRES è, soprattutto, il fuoco che incenerisce quei fili. E il calore necessario, oltre che dalle parole, viene sprigionato dal suono vivo, sfacciato, forgiato appositamente ai VDSS Recording
Studio da Filippo Strang.
WIRES, registrato in una manciata di settimane e mixato totalmente in analogico, è un muro di suono organico, pulsante, che fa rivivere l’approccio del genuino rock anni ’70 ma trova la sua perfetta collocazione ai giorni nostri. In 12 tracce si prenderà un biglietto di sola andata che condurrà dai Led Zeppelin ai Black Keys, passando per Wilco e The National.
“I fili su braccia e gambe sono rotti, li vedi mentre volano via…”
Non resta che incamminarsi.

Recorded and mixed by Filippo Strang at VDSS Recording Studio, Morolo (Fr)

Track Name: Gone
At the end what do you see?
Like an endless ocean
The stardust over the sea
Neon lights blinking around us
Nonsense talk of fading illusions
Hiding, slipping, waiting, breathing, falling, laughing

Hours ticking away
Doors open wide
So close to us
Nothing matters

You’d better go
It’s getting late
Where has the time gone?
Track Name: You are not me
You will never know how a good friend should be
You will never look past the mirror of the queen
You will never speak the language of the sea
You are not me

You will never share the shit inside my head
You will never stand the scary eyes inside my well
You will never dream beside the elf in my bad
You are not me

Girl,
Please, wait before talkin’ about
The good and evil of life,
Start breathing and laughing
The weight of the world is not yours
And stop searching for yourself
In fate, in another man
‘cause he’s not you, girl
Like you are not me

You will never walk my dog as well as me
You will never smile in front a gloomy scene
You will never weep watching “Field of dreams”
You are not me

You will never understand my “I don’t care”
You will never jump down with your arms up in the air
You will never tolerate the meals of Bear
You are not me

Girl,
Don’t try to say you’re more sensitive,
Don’t try to say you’re not fake
And who’s calculating?
I saw the abacus in your hand
The details are not real life,
Where’s the heart you had somewhere inside you?
Oh, how many troubles,
In your crowded brain!
You are not me
Track Name: Life
Can you hear this?
It’s anything but a song
It’s a laugh I use to ask for more

I have my knife now
I made my choice

What do you mean
When you talk about space?
What do you mean
When you talk about growth?

I have my knife now
I made my choice

My freedom ran
So far away from my hopes
I left my nest of wires
Fleeing to my life
My long awaited life

Can you hear this?
It’s anything but a song,
it’s a weapon I use to ask for more
Track Name: Wires
The air has changed
You wake up far from the old world
The wires on the arms and legs are broken
You see them while
They fly away
Defying gravity
Defying you
One by one
Swinging in play
They hover in the room

And tears go down
Wetting a stranger’s face

- “This is your face”
- “No, it’s not”
- “Liar Mirror”
- “These are your eyes”
- “No, they’re not”
- “Oh, stupid man… you saw the broken wires”
The road appears in front of you
You close your eyes and take a breath
The first step’s in your mind

And tears go down
Wetting a stranger’s face

Now face this brand new day
You’re strong enough
You’ll see the northern sky
Somebody told you it’s the great-one
How precious is your simplicity
Walk, walk, walk on
Track Name: Pocket Venus
Pocket Venus dance with me
In the field behind my house
There, down in the glade, we’ll be
One only shimmer, one only sound

You can burn all the faces
I can just wait for time
You turn stones into jewels
I can dream by your side

Near two eyes… two

Strange, discovering I’m not sick
The same interests are hiding-places
Our bodies speak for us
Please, please, keep smiling like this
You are mocking time

You can burn all the faces
I can just wait for time
You turn stones into jewels
I can dream by your side
You can show me the Fire
I can talk to you about Trust
You can learn you’re not cold
I can discover my real Home
Track Name: Down by the river
Folk,
Come down by the river
We’ll sing all together
“That’s Amore”

Folk,
The water is pleasant
The wind is a sweet caress
We can dance naked in a circle

We’ll play the mandolin forever
We’ll eat pizza until the sun goes down
We’ll go out of bounds
We will use up all the water
We will use up all the food
We’ll choke
With a smile on our faces

So now you try to take
A deep breath of clean air
The treat is hidden
In the lush ground

Come,
Coffee gushes out of the rocks,
We’ll suck from the same source ‘cause
There’s no end to our intensive thirst, so…

We’ll play the mandolin forever
We’ll eat pizza until the sun goes down
We’ll go out of bounds
Over, on and on
We will use up all the water
We will use up all the food
We’ll choke
With a smile on our faces

Take a look at the sky
The sun will draw a boot of light

The relatives will nod
How many brilliant smiles
The family tree will wave so happily
The leaves will dance on the branches.
Then one day
You’ll fall
On the ground
Beside this river
Track Name: I will
Words that last a burning season
Days that bring you far from here
Not a way to go back home
Not a rope to escape from fear

I will try to erase the look of your eyes
I will keep your ghost out in the dark
I will never stay here
Track Name: Something more clear
Sleep today
Or try to count the waves
Memory is a coin
With many faces

Breathe the air
Like strawberries it smells
Find the name of God
Inside a bed

I would show you what it means
To believe in every thing
That makes this life
Something more clear

Sleep today
Or find another way
To break this boring
Equilibrium

Try to explode
Like space moving this song
Whisper is not the way
To say hello

I would show you what it means
To believe in every thing
That makes this life
Something more clear

I really don’t know if this
Is the only way to hope
Maybe we will find an answer
When we will not need it more
Track Name: To climb
What we feel
When the sun is high?
And the wind is warm
And smiles are bright?

What we think
When eyes burn?
And words are sweet
As if god is speaking?

In the happiest time
Could we have a doubt?
Truly we’ll realize
After this moment
The best passes by
And we might as well die

Are you hearing
His burning words?
Are you feeling
His trembling hands?

Are you perceiving
That nettle hurts?
But he doesn’t complain
To enjoy the moment

In the happiest time
Madeline has a doubt
Then I realize
How ephemeral
Dreams, desires
Hopes and faith are
Track Name: Eggplant is the color
'Cause nothing really ends
She said: "Stay with me"
'Cause nothing really ends
He said: "Stay with me"
Your eyes are like broken promises
Your eyes are like broken promises

Eggplant is the color

Like endless railroad tracks
She said: "Don't wait for me"
Like endless railroad tracks
He said: "I'll stay here"
Your arms are like broken promises
Your arms are like broken promises

Eggplant is the color

You trying to tell me that it was... was all right
You trying to tell me we could win... together
These little precious things
Make her feel safe
These little precious things
Make him full of hope
Your hips are like broken promises
Your hips are like broken promises

Eggplant is the color

You trying to tell me that it was... was all right
You trying to tell me we could fly... together
Nothing seems different... nothing changes
Time after time after time after time after time after time…
Track Name: The greater good
Hold on ‘cause the best is not enough
We are always closer to the wrong way
Hold on ‘cause you can’t get what you want
We will meet in an open empty space

The greater good
Like fog in your eyes
Like a beast in disguise
Like brilliant dark lies

Think about the good-good-good-good times
And never take a look behind you
Everybody’s got something to hide
Everybody counts on a thousand hopes
Track Name: Random heart
Hey you
Forget the blue sea
A boy is man
When he stops thinkin’ freely
Have you ever seen me
Cryin’ like this time
A boy is man
When he drowns in his own mind

Simply…
Outside something’s broken
…circumstances
Inside a voice spoke to you
About consequences

It’s dangerous a random heart
It’s not worth keeping a dream apart
It’s better, now, building lives around a lie
Around your corner

Simply…
Outside something’s broken
…circumstances
Inside a voice spoke to you
About consequences

So, face in the sun, true love dies
And day after day you buy the sky
But c’mon
Without nights, without the polar star

This is growing

Simply…
Outside something’s broken
…circumstances
Inside a voice spoke to you
about consequences

Outside someone else
Whispers the next page
A book already written
From your first wet cry
