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.

Track Name: Making Miracles
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
Track Name: Message in the Bottleneck
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 messenger

Save my soul
Track Name: Emergency
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
Track Name: Pacific Trash Vortex
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)
Track Name: Danubio Blues
"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
Track Name: Post Partum Blues
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
Track Name: At the Bottom of a glass
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
Track Name: Heaven Pie
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
Track Name: Heart in Mind
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
Track Name: White Lies
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
Track Name: Barbecue Blues
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
