SteamBoyz: Italian Leviathan

"Mooring at Hyde Park"
Leviathan art by Keith Thompson

On the Italian front, Giada has discovered a Leviathan Rap.

Quite a funky beat! Jane exclaims as she snaps her fingers.



English translation...

Artist: Mondo Marcio (Rotten World)
Song: Leviatano (Leviathan)

Believe me, we are in a fork
if I look to the horizon
a war is coming
the sky is so dark
I want another future
Don’t you see that you are running on a yarn?
bro, sometime we should have an alternative past
because the sky is so dark
I want another future
I can bring you
back into the years
and make you fly
like a leviathan
I can tell you
all about my dramas
we can run
away from Milan
Maybe you didn’t notice
that the life is a jungle
it’s like a performance
every time more absurd
by now it’s natural
to make a selection
there is nothing we can do
Darwin was right
we are only people
but so complicated
a lot of different stories
but, at the end, all are the same
I haven’t more an S
printed on the chest
I tried to fly
but I found a cold land
I can bring you
back into the years
when, maybe, the sky wasn’t so dark
I can tell you about heroes and deceives
but can you give me another future?
I can bring you
back into the years
and make you fly
like a leviathan
I can tell you
all about my dramas
we can run
away from Milan
I see machines, monsters, bro I’m going crazy
good boy, stay away from me or I catch you with a lazo
I haven’t space
I jump from the terrace
before making an herb tea and going in space
I stood
I stood alone
look at the mixture
but leave that argoument
I’m not a rising star
I am a shining sun
a storyteller about terrible stories
the thing that the first piece of shit push you to buy
2010, it’s hard to think
It’s true that I have closed the curtains
I read and I can travel
In the first world war, I was there
in another future
this one isn’t so dark
I don’t know if my name is so resistant to don’t go crazy
we need another world
not another rotten world
I can bring you
back into the years
and make you fly
like a leviathan
I can tell you
all about my drama
we can run
away from Milan
Because
Believe me, we are in a fork
if I look to the horizon
there is a war coming
the sky is so dark
I want another future
Don’t you see that you are running on a yarn?
we need an alternative past
because the sky is so dark
I want another future
I can bring you
back into the years
and make you fly
like a leviathan
I can tell you
all about my dramas
we can run
away from Milan
I can bring you
back into the years
and make you fly
like a leviathan
I can tell you
all about my dramas
we can run
away from Milan
I can bring you
back into the years
and make you fly
like a leviathan
I can tell you
all about my dramas
we can run
away from Milan

  5. Can't believe my ears, either! Ah, the publicity stunts of the YA book market... because apparently, in Italy, teens and young adults are the people who buy more books.

    I like the song, though. I've always had a thing for MondoMarcio.
