about

The Singers Roma, Italy

The Singers is an indie rock band born in Rome at the beginning of 2010. Because Italy was missing something elegant, because acid guitar riffs went AWOL, because there weren’t enough charming melodies out there. On record, as in live concerts, the stinging guitars and the clenched rhythmics go hand in hand with a taste for melody and the respect for songwriting. ... more

Track Name: The Road
AS I WALK ON THE EDGE OF THE STREET ORPHAN, DARK AND WASTED
AS YOU SEE GOD IS NOT WALKING HERE NOTHING TO DO BUT WAITING
MOTIONLESS, UPRIGHT I THINK DEGRADING, CRUMBLING, FADING
MOTIONLESS, UPRIGHT I THINK NOTHING TO DO BUT WAITING

THROW YOUR SHARP RAYS AND RIP THESE BLACK CLOUDS
BLACK AS HYPOCRISY AND MY HAND IS UP AND WAITING FOR THE SUN

AS I WALK ON THE EDGE OF THE STREET HUNGRY COMES A FACELESS
AS YOU SEE GOD IS NOT WALKING HERE IT'S MY LIFE YOU'VE BEEN CHASING
MOTIONLESS, UPRIGHT I THINK DEGRADING, CRUMBLING, FADING
MOTIONLESS, UPRIGHT I THINK NOTHING TO DO BUT WAITING
Track Name: Dance! Dance! Dance! (Hit The Floor)
tonight i'm restless can't do a thing but one
can't do a thing but one this night i'm helpless
can't think of anything can't think of anything
just you and me bittersweet in the evening

knock down
hit the floor
nothing matters anymore
stand up

when you were here everything felt different
when you were here would you please dear
give an answer so I can fall asleep
and you can disappear
just you and me silly things in the evening

it doesn't matter if i can't dance
dance with me
please come dance with me
Track Name: 18:18
if all the things i have done if all the people i have known
if all the days i have lived could tell at least one thing about me
if all the tears i cried if all the lies i said
if all the love i felt could tell at least one thing about me
it would be you i tell you why i'm scared
of all the things you tried to teach me
that’s why i'm scared of you
if all the things i have done if all the people i have known
Track Name: Gods To Surrender
Too distant too far to realize
too close too soon too silent
one hit one shot one stroke one tear
that's what I need not what I see
this damage is not too bad but
my time runs out I'm too slow
plants and birds and rocks and things
count on my commitment that's why I'm here

then something struck the ship
no, it can't be real
sun is about to rise
now it's time for me to surrender

Too fast too quick to make it right
too slow too dull too careless
one chance one take one run one deed
that's what I tried not what I did
this light is too deep and white and
my life dries out I'm too worn
space and stars and black deep sky
that's what I will see until I die
Track Name: Piña Colada Experience
This twitchy feeling won't leave me alone
Crooked, she said, and the room went black
Out of thoughts, my revolving mind is gone
I guess nothing's ever coming back

And I wonder who can save me from this
Knowing that all I had was bliss

This scratchy melody is waiting for me
Come on, she sang and I can't turn back
This night I just want to sleep
I guess now I know how you feel

This moody singer can't wait for too long
Hello? I ask, but there's nobody out there
The stage is empty, maybe it's time to go home
Wait! I guess I saw someone I care

SAY YOU DON’T LIKE IT
Track Name: Red Snow
RED SNOW YOU'VE GOT IT ALL WRONG
THESE WORDS ARE CLEAR BUT NOT AS STRONG

HOW CAN IT BE? THINGS ARE NOT
NOT WHAT THEY SEEM IN YOUR DREAM

LET ME BE SAD IN A SAD SONG
MAYBE YOU CAN SING THIS ALONG
AND UNDERSTAND THINGS ARE NOT
WHAT THEY SEEM

IT'S ME, IT'S JUST ME AND ONLY ME
A LIAR, A COWARD, A THIEF
MAY I CONFESS? MAY I COME CLEAN?
DARLING YOU KNOW IT'S JUST ME
Track Name: Medication (Ode To The Gun)
They got answers They got nothing They seem human I'm sure I am
I’m talking of facing them Just before they walk like me They already seem too nice
They speak as they conspire A gun is what I need A gun is what

I took the gun to kill the man standing at my door Then came a shot And you're gone
Nothing but the light of my fire The dust on your hair The light of my fire I shot my belle

My door is still open And he stands knowing what I did Now put it down slowly
Just think how to mend A gun is what I need A gun is what
Track Name: Shamrock
Tell me about a teacher in the morning at six
Tell me about a father in the morning he's sick
Tell me about a schoolboy in the morning he's late
Ways are empty but it's always fate

... 'bout a teacher he's not checking the brakes
Tell me about a father he's not looking at waves
Tell me about a schoolboy he won't see other days
Ways are empty but it's always fate

They found a place that exists in their souls
they found a place to call home

... 'bout a teacher going out of his mind
Tell me about a father now he's drunk all the time
Tell me about a schoolboy he never felt like this way
Ways are empty but it's always fate
Track Name: I Bet Ya (Chakka-Chakka)
I bet you think you are always right
I bet you think you are facing a stupid jerk
I bet you could never be faithful
I bet you were never happy
and that you'll never be
I bet life will not punish you enough
I bet you finally understood you're nobody
I bet everybody told you are perfetctly normal
I bet you really believe
that you are better than me

BECAUSE OF THIS I HATE YOU
LIKE THE VERY FIRST DAY OF THIS LIFE
YOU WROTE JUST FOR ME

No matter you think you are always right
No matter you think you are facing a stupid jerk
No matter you could never be faithful
No matter you were never happy
and that you'll never be
No matter life will not punish you enough
No matter you understood you're nobody
No matter they told you are perfetctly normal
No matter that you believe
that you are better than me
Track Name: The Continuing Story Of Robert J. Finch
I WAS ROBERT FINCH BELOVED HUSBAND
AND BROTHER THEY KILLED ME
I met a lot of people most of them tried to hurt me
Brompton what a nice place to rest in peace
I'd like to leave
Crows and rabbits they could talk
but they are restive
Got time to kill but the more I see the less I feel
No, I'm not done Even if the end has passed
Beatrix eccentric writer
She wrote magic stories about animals
Brompton was her place her inspiration
She made Finch live
Track Name: English Strawberry
Don't mind like you've never been chosen like you've never been cheated on no matter what you are
I'm tellin' you I know what it means when you cry loud what it means when you drive so fast
I really can't get you
I know you know things I don't know if I could let you in I know things you know me
They say It's a matter of patience It's a matter of who you are and why things are going badly
I'm tellin you I know I can't even look closer can't even look my eyes are close and my heart is lazy
you know it's true
Track Name: Lights On, Detective Blondie
Cold never felt like this before and maybe it's you
It's you that I can't control
seeping in my skin and bones
Bold thought I was someone I ain't but maybe It's you
You make feel so so small
Son I hope you'll never feel this way
but I know it's me
It's me that you can't abide
seeking love and trust
One just one little sign and I will know it's me
It's me that can't see a thing
I'M ON MY WAY I'M AFRAID
TURN THE LIGHTS ON I'M INSANE
Now I know You'll never change
You can't be the one you were
It's me that can't live a thing
YOU'RE ON YOUR WAY YOU'RE AFRAID
TURN THE LIGHTS OFF BEFORE YOU GO
