Tool Silence – Life Gone By lyrics

An amorous look at the window
The landscape that rushes by outside
How fast my life has gone by so quick
As if I got on yesterday
And yet how many changes have happened,
How many times I was sure I had got there
Settled down but then I had to leave again.

Now the only thing I'm waiting for is to get to my last station
From which you do not leave
But tell me: and if I was wrong?

How many dreams, how many hopes experiences to be lived,
The worry of leaving, starting to build your own life
Plans, intentions, a lot of hard work, little responsibility
A longing to discover the world.

What will I find? Eternity? Or not? How will it be?

I've found during the journey that my time hasn't been sufficient
That only half my dreams didn't come true
It isn't because of my duties and I'd do it one more time
A satisfied smile appears when a pleasant memory comes back in my mind.

What will I find? Eternity? Or not? How will it be?

The train I've left behind, I can hear it to leave for a new journey
The station is crowded, all these people like me will they be happy?
I see women, men, young people and children.

My life has gone by, my baggage now is in my hand.

Vita Trascorsa

Un languido sguardo al finestrino, il paesaggio che corre
Come? Corso il tempo della mia vita, cosi in fretta, cosi veloce
Tanto che mi pare d'essere salito ieri, eppure quanti cambiamenti sono avvenuti
Quante volte sono stato convinto d'essere arrivato, sistemato,
Ma sono dovuto ripartire da capo
Ora aspetto solo di arrivare alla mia ultima stazione, quella da cui non si riparte pi?.

Ma dimmi, e se avessi sbagliato?

Quanti sogni, quante speranze, esperienze da vivere, ansia di partire,
Cominciare a costruirsi la propria vita, progetti, intenzioni, tanta buona volont?
Poca responsabilit?, voglia di scoprire il mondo.

Che trover?? L'eternit? Oppure no? Come sar??

Ho scoperto durante il viaggio che il mio tempo non? Stato sufficiente,
Che I miei sogni sono rimasti a met?, non do la colpa ai miei doveri,
E ancora una volta lo rifarei.
Un sorriso soddisfatto appare quando un piacevole ricordo mi torna in mente.

Che trover?? L'eternit? Oppure no? Come sar??

Con il treno alle spalle, lo sento ripartire per un nuovo viaggio,
La stazione? Affollata, tutta questa gente come me, loro saranno contenti?
Vedo donne, uomini, giovani e bambini.
La mia vita? Passata, il mio bagaglio in mano.
