about

After just four months since their first release, the SYNCAGE project are back with a breath-taking production: ITALIOTA EP.
This opus ranges from the melancholic soundscapes of "Anxiety" to the sneering might of "Leash and Necks" and features Syncage's first suite, their very own theatrical metal manifesto, "Italiota's Journey no.2".

Track Name: Leash and Necks
I’d like to tell you something, despite the things you want to see
I’d like you to get what I say, as I won’t repeat no more
you thought I’m like the others: some kind of dog locked in your jail
well, let me tell you I’m not in there ‘cause I’m freer than the air (yes I am!)

You look like a hunter, you’re too used to victory
now the wind blows by my side, I’ll be glad to make you sink
I am mostly gentle, I don’t like the ones who hide
you got out the asshole of me, who’s been away for a long time

Let me out of your game, I’m no puppet to play
you can grab the rope but I won’t help in binding it around my neck
you’re so sure you want to play with fire, well,
in your shoes I would not!

Oh, how pitiful! You’re trying to trap in a bag the sunlight (you should refine)
oh, how merciful was I to get fooled by your innocent smile (willing to tie)
dare to look at me and face the reality stuck in my eyes
who’s the wizard here? It looks like the roles were reverted in time

You’re spinning down into whirlpools of rainbows
while someone’s magic is bringing me high
beneath foundations and beyond your kingdom
hail to the minstrel who won’t sing your tune

Let me out of your game, I’m no puppet to play
you can grab the rope but I won’t help in binding it around my neck
you’re so sure you want to play with fire, well,
in your shoes I would not!
Track Name: Anxiety
Red lipstick
is falling of your untold will to get rid of those idiot flies around your chin
you want to get the stink out of your bed
beg mercy
the gossipmonger’s takin’ over any other word you wanted to speak out
it doesn’t really matter what you say
hangover
to feel you need the wine to keep on
don’t bother
‘cause we don’t need you to know who you are

That white slime
is gliding on a face who had enough and yet who cannot stop what she started
there’s a long queue, they’re waiting for their time
no one cares
about the things you keep inside, they simply wanna get what you had callled them for
a selfish moment of void ecstasy
I’m not there
it’s all about the things I was told
no further
but I can’t help I feel some sympathy

Fly over lies
where you won’t need to hide
it’s hard, it hurts to turn the bolt and make the engine cry
but that’s the only way to break the tie
Over the words
which were proclaimed to harm
get out, get off, you shall be tough
to lift the weight you loaded on your spine, on your spine
Track Name: Italiota's Journey no. 2
Ladies and gentlemen, please, take a seat
Don’t think of what upsets you out of here
We all know how much society hurts
Forget it all with this rigmarole

Look at your faces, look at your eyes
Looks like you’ve forgotten all but to cry
Learn from the Master, he who ever smiles
Glorify hollowness, aim to be tied!

We’re puppets, no will by our side
An army of boneless warcry
Command us, oh Lord of the flies
We raised you, you’ll erase our minds

It’s so soft to bounce on your brains
Diving into the gain I get through my shallow refrains
Mass of shapeless conscience you are
You belong to the cage you built and I do own the key

Constitutionally part of your daily routine, I dwell
Twisted tunnels leading to a truer fellowship, to tame
Glowing, wearing classy clothing with a stable grin, so fake
Can’t you see I pull the ropes which govern your disease, your pain

The second-born is fairer copy than the first
Perpetual child, you must absolve all of his faults
A sharper mind will lead him where the first one failed
The sharper teeth will better fit his witty fleer

He sucked blood out of his own elder brother’s chest (no regret)
He rose in strength, we’re all awaiting his command (rule our faith)
The blackest suite is wrapping any hope we had (how can you)
We trust in you, like any parents would have done

We’re puppets, no will by our side
An army of boneless warcry
Command us, oh Lord of the flies
We raised you, you’ll erase our minds
