Stay Untamed

Lyrics and music: Silvano Ancellotti
Tune: The Hourglass Void (Luca Crespi)

We wake up, we go to work, we go to bed and we constantly dream of running away. Then we are too afraid of making a bad decision, stepping into a risk or losing the little square meter we have built around us so we just let the days go by taking our future as an already written plot when, in fact, it is not.

The phone rang nine times this morning
And the alarm did the same
Cracked back ’cause you’re on stress
since you don’t remember when
The doctor says you need a diet
A new pillow and a cure
Traffic jam, screaming lads:
Nothing comes up right today

Just run away
Don’t look back again

So stay untamed,
we’re born on a leash,
you really want to die the same?
Do we live to grow gaunt and grumpy on a chair
or will we dare to fail and start again?

Did you check the mails, did you pay the bills,
Did you count the minutes, the hours and the days
you spend oiling the machine?

Now look out your window,
now look out there my friend,
Do you see the world is turning
and you’re stuck in your life-lasting routine
So run away, don’t turn back again

So stay untamed,
we’re born on a leash,
you really want to die the same?
Do we live to grow gaunt and grumpy on a chair
or will we dare to fail and start again?

So stay untamed
against the strain of life
against these strangling times
Breath, get a pint, roll away and take your time
There’s always a better way to go

Off the leash, off the leash
There’s a plenty of world to see
Out of this cage, away from here
Off the leash, off the leash
Off these safe rails trying to live free
