Aufidena – Under The Cathedral lyrics

(words/music by Francesca Ortolani)

Under the Cathedral
The frozen Kцln sleeps
The large square's dogs' teeth
Pursue my flesh that bleeds
Until that day, until that day
I had been always shuffling my eyes down
In the attitude of postrating myself and shame!
The wind had been forcing my face on the ground

Under the Cathedral
My climb upwards begins
The edges' blades scratch my ivy
But they don't reach my skin
And when I get on the highest place I'll spread my wings out and I'll ride the sky
In the liquid space I will give a shape
Every man that rules is the man that wants to fly

Under der Domkirche
Die Stadt von Kцln schlief
Und ich begann den Flug
Auf Luftzьgen lief
Ich wusste nicht, ich wusste nicht
Dass hier I'm Himmel die Sonne noch scheint
Und dort auf Erde fand ich schlicht
Dass Finsternis die ganze Zeit bleibt
Aber durch jene Dunkelheit
Habe ich gelernt zu fliegen, zu fliegen

But through that darkness I have learned how to fly
But through that darkness I have learned how to fly
Goodbye Jesus Christ oh oh oh
Today I'm famous and blas-famous
Join me to the dark side
