I heard the voice of my friend last night He was crying I heard him whispering in the dark He was wailing Eli, Eli Lama sabachtani Ahaha, Eli In my morning prayers I pray for you my friend I pray for you to understand You never suffer in vain In my morning prayers I pray for you my friend I pray for you to find treasures In each one of your tears I heard the voice of my friend last night He was crying I heard him whispering and then shout He was bawling Eli, Eli Lama sabachtani Ahaha, Eli May you be strong enough to realise That everything you live
comes for a greater good Whether you can see it or not May you be strong enough to love your destiny No matter in pain or joy No matter in tears or laughter Don’t ever feel no shame For you’re not the only one To drop tears at night You’re not the only one Don’t ever feel no shame For even the greatest man Sometimes loses all hope And curses the life he’s living Don’t ever feel no shame I heard the voice of my friend last night He was crying I heard him calling your name out loud He was dying Eli, Eli Lama sabachtani Ahaha, Eli

Never felt more alive than when approaching death And on that day Jah gave me a whole new breath And if I had to rewrite my life
 I wouldn’t change a single line Jah saved me once
 But will she save me twice? Jah saved me once But shall he save me twice? Jah strengthened my faith that day When I was losing my way What more can I say? She gave me a second chance And made my life be so intense What a gift so immense Life strengthened my faith that day When I was leading astray What more can I say? Can’t say nothing but thank you I’ve got so many unanswered questions Tell me, why me? Why not him? Why not her? Why not my neighbour? Tell me, why me?

Father, I pray Thee You’ve got to hear my plea Father, I pray Thee Oh please listen to me Protect our family And bless the baby A child was born today We’re all gathered around him Let us join our hands and pray Give him love and affection Father you know it’s true We will give him So much love Father, I pray Thee You’ve got to hear my plea Father, I pray Thee Oh please listen to me Protect our shelter And bless the cradle When he faces tribulation Let him stand right In front of all the temptations Make him stand right This world is crazy, it has no pity Please guide his steps Oh my forefathers please You’ve got to be his guiding light May your wisdom be with him Lead his way in this world But I beg you never to let your pains haunt His days and night

Don’t hide your scars Because they’re part of who you are Don’t hide your scars Because they remind you you’re alive Don’t hide your scars Because they’re part of who you are Don’t hide your scars Because they remind you you survived First it’s hurting Or maybe even bleeding Life has taken its toll on you But you got over it Yes, you made it through Your wound turned into a scar Now it’s part of who you are No need to show off But nothing to be ashamed of You’ve experienced pain You’ve grown and you’ve learnt throughout time That’s what they’re here to remind Your scars are beautiful Because they’re the proof you healed once and for all Don’t you try to evade the memory Accept it, deal with it, live with it Because your scars are your history inscribed in your skin And your blood and tears served as the divine ink Don’t you try to hide your scars Your scars are beautiful Your history’s beautiful You are beautiful Remember you’ve got over it

Poor are those who live too long Until they feel nothing but pain Who live until there’s no more light in their eyes Until there’s no more will in their soul One day when your work is over When you have enough of living One day when you want to longer To wake up tomorrow morning I hope you’ll leave this world Without, without a cry I hope you’ll leave this world Smiling at it Why to live, to live in vain With an everlasting pain Your mind lost in a maze Your body decaying and hurtful I hope that one day I’ll sit against a great tree My bare feet in the soil My hands in the autumn leaves Breathe slower and slower Until my time is over Close my eyes A forest as my last vision

How do you think
 You can buy fancy your phone so cheap? Do you think it’s magic? I bet you don’t 
Is it hypocrisy? Is it stupidity? You’re anyway far away from reality Far, far away Modern slavery Can’t pretend you don’t see Modern slaves straining in the shadow Can’t pretend you don’t know Now you tell me “it’s so far away What can I do anyway?” What can you do? But oh, your resignation Your passive position Make me sick What a cowardice! The clothes you wear The sweets you eat The phones you buy Hide the sweat and tears of modern slavery Don’t act as you’re surprised Don’t pretend you’re horrified Because I know it’s easier for you to shut your eyes Open your eyes!
8.
Oh, brothers of the street If I don’t look at you It is not that I don’t care It is not to cry Oh, brothers of the street If my tears
 Could rip you out of you misery I’d spread them like rivers Walkin’ in the street, the other day Wrapped in warm clothes Enjoying the cool breeze I was full of hopes A smile on my face When I saw you brother Lying on the cold concrete Homeless and hungry How come I’m here? How come you’re there? What did you do to deserve this life? What did I do for mine? How come I’m here? How come you’re there? The ways of the Father, I can’t understand Freedom is a prison As long as one man is shackled

Deregulating everything You say “Let markets be free” But that ain’t no liberty for me Not for me Because I don’t care About being free to consume I am a citizen, not a consumer Why should capital
be freer than the people? Why should capital
be freer than us? Let the people be free Free to move and free to live There is a goddamn alternative You think you’re free Because your life was made easier Cheaper, sweeter But that ain’t nothing but an illusion Behind the smokescreen of economic liberty Hides the reality of soul slavery It’s all about trade, money and profit They say that’s for the people’s benefit But I don’t buy it People are nothing but simple pawns Down there markets rule over the nations And the sun never seems to set on the empire Of multinational corporations Now we got to resist I don’t want your so-called freedom You can keep it And you can even burn it down
10.
What have you done in the name of my Father God of Abraham, God of Isaac, God of Jacob What have you done in the name of the one who is, who was And ever will be, God Abraham Abraham followed the commandments of the Almighty He took his son Isaac to the mountain He tied him up and started the fire He took his knife, ready to give his son as holocaust But god made his hand weak He tested the faith of his servant But he would never let the blood Of the innocent be shed in vain Simeo and Levi were two sons in the house of Jacob They left to avenge their sister Dina They took their sword, they took their anger And killed the people of their enemies Jacob told them “my sons What have you done you fools? You set war amongst the people You set war against our host” You put my pardon to test How can I bless you anymore?
11.
Who’s the dreamer now? Who’s living in a world of fantasy? Disconnected from reality? Certainly not me, ‘cause I see We’re in a state of emergency We need a massive change, now Who’s ignoring ecological crisis? Who’s holding on to fake promises? Promises, promises, promises Of eternal abundance Promises, promises, promises Of man’s almightiness Annihilating barriers Of time, space and nature This is ancient history Your big dream is over Now we got to face reality Simple living is a must I’m not saying it will be easy Just that it’ll be necessary Because I want a different future You say I’m a dreamer But thinking we can go on headlong This is the genuine utopia Our backs are against the wall We’ve already heard the last call Now whose vision is utopistic? And whose vision is realistic?

It was a nice night of June With little drops of rain It was a warm night of June With lightings in the air And the cool breeze Bearing smells of lime trees We’re standing face to face I’m looking into your eyes You’re looking into mine Your smile makes me weak What shall I do? Should I kiss you? It was a cold morning of December The land covered with snow
 It was a bright morning of December The land drowned in the mist And everything was still Not a move, nor even a breath We’re lying face to face Our voices sound so damp in this white world Our hearts beat so strong Should I be true and tell you I love you? It was a dry day of August The land covered with straw It was a burning day of August The land slowly dying There was a crow in the sky Coming from the left to our sight We’re sitting face to face My voice has gone so grave She feels the truth that is coming My heart beats so slow How shall I tell her it’s over?

Going for a walk outside The sun shines bright in the blue sky The smell of lime trees lingers in the air Primroses have bloomed everywhere Birds wooing one another Nature’s risen from slumber Sweet sight, sweet smell, sweet melody Sweet season make me so lively I’m gonna pick a primrose for my mother While I’m singing, singing What a joy to behold this beautiful nature I know it’s so common It’s just an ordinary cycle But like the birth of a new-born It’s such a miracle It’s light taking over darkness It’s life taking over death It’s the promise of a new start Renewing our hopes and warming up the heart I’m gonna listen to the sweet bird singing And I’m smiling, smiling I can finally say “here comes the spring” Happiness is at hand No need to look for the unreachable Happiness is at hand If we can be satisfied with little Happiness is in an exchange of smiles with a stranger In the spectacle of nature It’s when you share all this with your beloved ones So let us all sing together as one I’m gonna wander near the still blue waters Enjoying the morning I’m gonna watch the majestic swan swimming

about

“The Master Plan” refers to a spiritual concept, according to which everything happening in our lives follows a sort of divine, mysterious and ungraspable plan, but fundamentally good. In some events that we experience, we can perceive signs implying that this was meant to be. At times the plan seems beautiful to us, at times incomprehensible and spiteful.
Why do we say that? For whether we are right or wrong, whether this is a reality or a fantasy, we believe that this vision can enable us to live a more serene life and comprehend our tribulations with philosophy: even though reality may seem revolting to us, accepting it and having faith in life will always give us more positive perspectives and more strength to change what is wrong and unjust, and fight for a better living, for ourselves and for others.
Are violence, war, hatred, misery, injustice, greed, inequality part of this plan? If so, why? Or is it humans who distort a plan which was originally good? No one knows. But to us, this conception of life can make us not only humbler, but also better equipped to be actors of the change.
This is the main idea of the album and that can be found in most of the songs, whether they deal with our relationship to pain, death, important shocks of our lives or love relationships.
