about

We Were Never Being Boring Collective Italy

We want music to never turn into something boring for us. It would mean that we have become boring. Because music does not die with mp3′s or copyright: boredom is what brings it down, when it becomes a habit. All we need is a small do-it-yourself collective, as tiny as a simple smile. ... more

Track Name: Lovesong for the geek
Who do you want to be?

Do you want to listen to the girls who say you are worthless?

Who do you want to be?

What's your favourite thing to do when you're all alone?

And who says it isn't cool

Reading all the books at school

Knowing the names of all the planets and the stars?

And who says it isn't cool

To know all about world war two

And read about dinosaurs all night long?

Do you still not see?

There's no need to fear a heartless crowd with just copies of ideas

Do you still not see?

There's no need to hide, they will try to take you anyway

And who says it isn't cool

Dancing every afternoon

Go fishing with your dad, or play piano or harmonica?

And who says it isn't cool

To figure skate in winter time

Read too much of ancient crime, and love statistics?

And this is a love song for the geek

For the boy who knew he was ugly and no good

And oh, for the kids who knew too much

And still too little, and yet too little

After all...

And this is a love song for the geek

For the girl who was narrow minded and annoying

For the kids who knew too much

And still too little, and yet too little

After all...
Track Name: Extra Life
There's a killer on the loose

And we all wanna hide

He is dangerous as hell

He might come after us

There's a drunk man driving fast

He is angry and lonely

He's tired of his life

And goes the same way as me

But I don't care

I've got an extra life

Tonight I got an extra life

No matter what goes wrong now

I'm gonna be all right

There's a woman going mad

Making poisonous drinks

And she's working late at night

In my favourite bar

There's a girl running fast

With her mother’s machine gun

Now she's hiding in the woods

Near my favourite park
Track Name: I sit and wait for what?
Well, I'm a clown now

Oh, I'm a fool!

I followed the rules

But took the wrong path

Was it a choice?

I sit and wait for what?

Sit and wait for what?

I sit and wait for what?

Sit and wait for what?

If I knew where to look...

I really want to leave

Please tell me I can go!

I've relived all my past

The future doesn't show

And I do care!

But no-one tells me how, and why, and where to go

I'm staring at the sun

The clouds are far away

Why do I feel the rain

I close the door behind

But I do care

But no-one tells me how!

I seem OK now?

I never know when to smile

What to say

Laugh with the others

Then turn away
Track Name: Oh Oh
The story goes like stories go

Like worms crawl in the rain

And I'm scared of you

I'm scared of me

And you could be insane

Still I look you in the eyes

We meet so often on the bridge

When I turn my head

You turn your head

What does it mean?

It's so

Oh-oh!

I'm running more these days

Than I have ever run before

I'm scared of eating

Scared of leaving footprints on the floor

And I know that I'm imagining

The interest I see

Still it keeps me running laps

So I can retrace you and me!

Come and take my hand!

I don't care where you are coming from

I don't care where you're off to

Come and dive through the rain

Come and take my hand!

I don't care why you are out so late

You're running on a Friday night

That's all I can know

Come and take my hand!

Take me far away 'cause I can't stay

Behind this time

You're running by...

I try...
Track Name: Pretty Girls Make Mojitos
I know you work all night, and the whole day too

But listen to me please, there's something I wanna do

I wanna take you out for a snack or a meal

Will you agree, do we have a deal?

I wanna hug you forever!

Whisper sweet things in your ear

I could tell you my secrets

I'll tell you all you wanna hear!

I know you work all day and the whole night too

But won't you come with me, there's lots of things we could do

We could watch a movie, or go for a walk

We could hang out all night and talk!

Be my girl, my one love!

Be my girl, it would be all right!

If you say yes you won't regret

I'll hold you all through the night
Track Name: And then What?
Touch me! Then wake me up slowly

and psychologically save me from today

Touch me! Then stroke my hand gently

Make sure I get home safely

But never stay...

And then what? I say, I said it now

And then nothing! you reply

Untie me, untangle me gently

Then close the door forever

Throw the key

Hold me! Then lift me and move me

Take care of me forever

Throw the key

Forget the past, build a castle made of straw

Then wait a while, let it fall down

Forget the straw, build a castle made of wood

Then wait a while, let it fall down

Forget your home, build a castle made of stone

Then wait a while, let it fall down

Forget your past, go get out, you win at last

Then wait a while, let it fall

In a while, I'll wait, I'll say it then

Now there's something, you'll reply
Track Name: It Fell Apart
Some months had passed

I moved away to another place

Another pace

And I tried to make it go away

But then we were broken

I didn't eat

I wish I could get the time to stop

To turn it back

And I disappeared and never saw

The ghost I became

But the island, the grass, and the water

The ferry, the cat, and the cows

And R and K and Y and K and T kept me safe from the

Dark thoughts and the endless cold silence

The holes and the years

All the years that vanished fast

And left a vast

Desert of nothing

I didn't vanish, though I tried so hard

And I'm still around, 'cause I try so hard

But a big part died

I think I cried

It out in the soil

Where some flowers grow

The silent kind

And the endless nights

The stars that shine

And I start to see another me

Not broken and shallow

There are days where nights used to be

There are mornings fair and aimless

There's a hand that's searching for me

Will you lift me out of darkness?

There are moons where wounds used to be

There are craters, plumes, and fountains

There are worlds just waiting for me

There are rivers, paths, and mountains

There are roads I've never yet seen

There are deserts, forests, waters

There's a hand that's searching for me

Will you lift me out of darkness?
