Miracolo sotto le stelle d’occidente…   “WESTERN STARS”   I wake up in the morning, just glad my boots are on Instead of empty in the whispering grasses, Down the Five at Forest Lawn On the set, the makeup girl brings me two raw eggs and a shot of gin When I give it all up for that little blue pill That promises to bring it all back to you again   Ride me down easy, ride me down easy friend Tonight the western stars are shining bright again   Here in the canyons above Sunset, the desert don’t …

PIETRE MILIARI   “The Court of the Crimson King”   The rusted chains of prison moons Are shattered by the sun I walk a road, horizons change The tournament’s begun The purple piper plays his tune, The choir softly sing; Three lullabies in an ancient tongue, For the court of the crimson king The keeper of the city keys Put shutters on the dreams I wait outside the pilgrim’s door With insufficient schemes The black queen chants The funeral march, The cracked brass bells will ring; To summon back the fire witch To the court of the crimson king …

EDITORIALE   “L’anno che verrà”   Caro amico ti scrivo Così mi distraggo un po’ E siccome sei molto lontano Più forte ti scriverò Da quando sei partito C’è una grossa novità L’anno vecchio è finito ormai Ma qualcosa ancora qui non va Si esce poco la sera Compreso quando è festa E c’è chi ha messo dei sacchi di sabbia vicino alla finestra E si sta senza parlare per intere settimane E a quelli che hanno niente da dire del tempo ne rimane Ma la televisione ha detto che il nuovo anno Porterà una trasformazione E tutti quanti …

UN MINUTO DI SILENZIO…   CANDLE IN THE WIND   Goodbye Norma Jean Though I never knew you at all You had the grace to hold yourself While those around you crawled They crawled out of the woodwork And they whispered into your brain They set you on the treadmill And they made you change your name And it seems to me you lived your life Like a candle in the wind Never knowing who to cling to When the rain set in And I would have liked to have known you But I was just a kid Your …
