Track 10: Pozzanghera


After making long drawn-out tracks like ‘Engage’ and ‘Comfortably Unknown’, I felt it was time for some light relief.  I didn’t see why I couldn’t sneak in a quirky little punk number to add to the unpredictability of the final quarter of the album.  While writing the lyrics, the only words that seemed to fit were in Italian (my second language), so that’s how it ended up being.  A rough English translation would go something like this…

“I go out one evening, the darkness captivates me.  I can’t see anything, but I’m not worried.  I go running in the rain, but I don’t care if I get lost or fall in the water.  Then there’s a puddle, exclusively mine.  I can spend the night down here in my puddle.  It’s just my size, exclusively mine.  Nobody can disturb me down here in my puddle”

The song is about those times when you detach yourself from reality and immerse yourself in your own thoughts.  Those times when you feel nervous and vulnerable while at the same time strangely enjoying it.  It’s not a favourable state to stay in for long, but one none of us should fear falling into from time to time.
