Making miracles Searching for the oracles Making miracles Jumping over obstacles I’ve been trying to fix things alright I’ve been striving 'n' slowly frying my mind much power is running out everybody still twists and shout you tell me to shut my mouth well hell I'm just so tired of Making miracles Searching for the oracles Making miracles Jumping over obstacles I’ve been fighting to be beaten down so enlighted I rise back to the ground when u know there's nothing left to say there's nobody left to save giving up my prayer warming survival Making miracles Searching for the oracles Making miracles Asking for the horoscopes

MESSAGE IN THE BOTTLENECK lyrics by FDF For the socks option and our shaving thieves For the acid smile of the wireless queen For judges acts and their dirty hands And the silence conspiracy of the press Message in the bottleneck Message in the bottleneck Blogging it to debt For the Chinese soldier's monkies execution For the Singapore organs sale revolution For the parmesan cows soy OGM And the hidden face of the nuclear plan Message in the bottleneck Message in the bottleneck Blogging it to death Send another SMS Send another messenger S M S Save my soul

Emergency 03:37
EMERGENCY (F.De Fazi) What are we up to in this time and age The World is tumbling over the hardest rage It seems just troubles will quake tomorrow Rather than hope, we need a pray for sorrow Home is a marshland of muddy waters and sand Here’s the stars’ dust of the commercial trust Help me more to keep my feet back on the ground I wanna fly, the sky ain’t tumbling down Emergency policy wait and see Earth is crying She’s mad at us Can’t forgive us Emergency silly humanity Earth is tired She is killing us To survive Stop the clock pace and watch my face busy trying to emerge while others just submerge stress out my mind with projectiles shooting a lie I almost commit a crime Emergency seek a true remedy Earth is sick And sucking to us To stay alive

Pacific trash vortex Sail in the sea big garbage island It grows spiral slow in this plastic gyre chemical fish in the web flowing of marine torture to the magnetic death CHORUS pacific trash vortex ocean obscenity pacific trash vortex ocean obscenity so many tears restore the salted water an army of cleaners fight pelagic monster cannibal fisherman eating each other synthetic synthesis of money debris CHORUS (life is slowly melting)

"DANUBIO" BLUES F. De Fazi You may lie to yourself, letting the time go by leave the reason behind trapped in chains playing the game Over Danubio Blues And I may find myself playing your baby doll, digging the scene dragging your thing shame as it never was Over Danubio Blues Over Danubio Blues Angel make me cry Angel make me fly And I went through Gotta be true You may hide to yourself, wasting your precious time faking this game face to face, missing your ace Over Danubio Blues trapped in chains playing the game Over Danubio Blues And I may lose myself Going for lady gold Fucking the scene Sucking that thang Crazy like never was Over Danubio Blues Over Danubio Blues Angel make me cry Angel make me fly Angel make me cry Angel make me fly And I went through Gotta be true Over Danubio Blues Over Danubio Blues Over Danubio Blues Over Danubio Blues Over and over and over

POST PARTUM BLUES I got from the station Straight to your bed Tonight we’re gonna have fun But please don’t make me stay Tomorrow I’ll be confused You know I’ll rather have a Post Partum Blues You say you love me And wanna marry me But baby can’t you see what our lives are gonna be Holding a family If I could choose I know I’d rather have a postpartum blues The choice that I’ve been living with Makes it harder on the road You know I’ve been uncomfortably far away from home Wrong or right I’m so confused You know I’d better have a Post Partum Blues The choice that I’ve been living with Makes it harder on the road You know I’ve been uncomfortably far away from home Wrong or right Oh so confused You know I’d better have a post partum blues You say need me And want my kids And changing naps rather than guitar strings Maybe it’s late Maybe it’s true You know I’d better off a Post Partum Blues

AT THE BOTTOM OF A GLASS F. De Fazi I feel so lazy but my mind is crazy many strange cases chasing on me well I just don’t care whether hold on or letting go Somebody shake me Shall I dare or hesitate? Why do I struggle... to be myself? Pour me a drink if you please I’ m drowning in my delusion Oh lord I’m living At the bottom of a glass It may be right to be wrong What can I do to undo? I’ m never big enough for my limits I slip from tomorrow to yesterday Why do I struggle... to be myself! Pour me a drink if you please I’ m drowning in my confusion Oh lord I’m living At the bottom of a glass Chill me a drink be kind, please! Going Higher with degrees of all of my dreams Deep down I am living At the bottom of a glass Yeah at bottom oooh at the bottom of a glass

Heaven Pie 05:46
HEAVEN PIE F. De Fazi Alone Finally you are free to fly where u want To the special places u have left behind For the lack of time Out of mind u travel back on the road U search for traces deep inside your heart Where u are coming from Goooooooooooo Fatal flow Have a try Heaven pie Soooooooooooo Stop the glow Burn the light Heaven pie U are lost Don’t know who u are captured in fear Running so fast turning every way you see A direction sign Sound these words together and make nonsense Another cloud is shaping you will melt above And cake delicious dreams

HEART IN MIND (F.De Fazi) Heart in mind Mind in the heart I got my heart in mind, the mind is in the heart Right place right time Back to the start Like in a dream I followed you up Now you are back in town With your crown I didn’t understand What makes you a man Now I just can’t resist you After all, this time that I missed you I promised you my love And I gave it away But this time I’ll stay And make you mine Heart in mind Mind in the heart Yeah the sound is grooving Baby don’t be strange Gotta keep on moving Have to re-arrange Cause I can’t go down down down down down to the ground Gotta keep on pushing And it’s not the same Time is right for shooting Well I can’t contain gotta go up up up up up up up to the sky Heart in mind Mind in the heart You know me baby something changed me But I couldn’t realize, no, I wouldn’t recognize you I forgot about your smile, It turned into notes and rhymes you become my inspiration but it’s such a frustration! Heart in mind Mind in the heart Now he’s back in town with his crown well I can’t go down

White Lies 03:28
WHITE LIES (F. De Fazi) Turn off the lights Imagination is taking us high After all beyond these bedroom walls A hidden voice is telling things you wouldn’t here Just a dirty sense of lying White Lies loving us Dry eyes sweet and sour White lies pleasing us Dry eyes pay the price Cover me of gold and affection effects Always reflex purple of sorrow Spread me of love from my feet to my heart Hold me tight pull me in your mental embrace White Lies loving us Dry eyes sweet and sour White lies pleasing us Dry eyes pay the price Stop stop crying stop snots stop crying stop sobbing (x2) Stop stop crynig stop snots stop snots stop sobbing (x2) White Lies loving us Dry eyes sweet and sour White lies pleasing us Dry eyes pay the price

BARBECUE BLUES (Francesca De Fazi) I’ve got a barbecue blues When I’m bothering you To take me out for dinner to a veggie restaurant I’ve got the barbecue blues When I seat next to you starving to eat that big share of steak Well, Sausages and lamb Ain’t really in my plan And I just can’t eat beef you now it make me sick It’s true! I’ve got the barbecue blues uuh uuh uuh uuh uuh I’ve got the barbecue blues I don’t need to justify I love cows pigs and veals But I don’t fancy their meat I don’t taste but I trust All those lovely animals I can’t trust the human race Either can’t bite their face Sausages and lamb Ain’t really in my plan And I just can’t eat beef you now it make me sick It’s true! I’ve got the barbecue blues uuh uuh uuh uuh uuh Hot dogs and Big Macs With me ain’t no success I just can’t come for lunch Unless it’s a veggie brunch It’s true! I got the barbecue blues uuh uuh uuh uuh uuh

about

Francesca describes the 11 tracks of "Craft Songs" as being “tied together with water, tears, sea, whiskey, rain, blood and amniotic fluid.” Even if the blues come to mind while first listening to the album, the music is much more than that. The album combines experimentations, research, ideas matured on the road and in Francesca’s dreams.
The lyrics are about timeless topics, “I am still very angry, civilly speaking, like all of us after all, forced to live in a society that no longer holds the confrontation with human reality,” Francesca says.
