Center of gravity (Franco Battiato)

Cancionero

 

 

Narcissistic chansonier fighting delusional poetry

With electric demons and spiritual fumes

 

Smilin’ girls in Ginza style

Are bowing to the powdered queen and her clever dandy

 

Stars aligning, renaissance, everything is making sense,

I was finding enlightenment, impeccable data,

And now I’m losing control…

 

(I’m) looking for a perpetual center of gravity

That doesn’t let me think about people and all the world that spins around me

Nothing that matters more…

 

(I’m) looking for a perpetual center of gravity

So I don’t have to think about people and all the world that spins around me

Over and over again

 

Mystical and majestic the air in Moscow Cathedral a cold winter day,

I’m fading away

 

Alienated coats and ties are walking the City with falke strength to fulfil

their mission in living agreement, but they don’t know what is for

 

I’m still searching for a permanent center of gravity

Within an overdose of information in a world that spins around me

Nothing that matters more…

 

I’m still searching for a permanent center of gravity

Within an overdose of information in a world that spins around me

Over and over again
