Traces of Humanity

by Andrea Baroni

Hello World 02:24
Nothing to hear The air now is clear Of all the hums They used to make All words like toys Crack in your throat Their voices are Silent signals Trace of life here Nothing but the wind Or just a voice inside A thought that Breaks through silence Without trace of life There’s nothing to be found here And all words like toys Crack in your throat Their voices are Silent Signals Life Love Ruin Lost All This Noise We Grave Inside Our World Which Dies Now Falls Within Your eyes And no more
All Your Lies I Follow Preaching for those who bleed So spread your lies Your own disease We close our eyes to what is real Blind new machines in disbelief All your lies and all your sorrow You command And I will follow
Build-a-truth (free) 01:36
They had suffered For all our mistakes And who may know If it's not too late To change this world Who may know Now the lights have gone A black curtain falls And the earth lies in silence As it was before We lost control In the hours of darkness We sealed this world in our hearts of darkness Please hold my hand In this hour of darkness A world that falls In the hours of darkness We will never Ever be afraid We have been hardened We are stronger We will never Ever fall again We have been tested We are forever We will never Ever be afraid When the night Has begun...
Across 05:37
There is silence, here In the wasteland A strange stillness Enshrouds everything A collapsed church A desolate school Factories of rust The ruins of a city And no religion No politics Made the difference No one Ever made the difference This barren earth Humanity Broken toy Now a wretched place Of solitude And no ghost Left to mourn Across the waste I walk alone A land no one will ever call home Future here is just a word As time conceals Will never be a life to seize Only dust To lay As time conceals It's just a word This is all that remains Only solitude And silence Here Only the void remains Of the actions with no future Across a land With no name Anymore Across the waste I walk alone A land no one will ever call home Future here is just a word As time conceals Will never be a life to seize Only dust To lay
We used to live here Once there was woods Lakes and empty skies Once there was fields Once there was lifes Bring me to ruin Conglomerate ruins We used to smell poisons We used to breathe fog We used to eat concrete To build and reach the core We used to endanger everything That wasn't in our plans We used to ignore the effects We are like the worst disease We used to die here
The Spire 02:02
Buried deep within me Only birds now can behold The remains and all the hopes Of a mankind long consumed I am built to last With the essence of an altar And a wretched heart of dirt I'm here to stay forever As a trace of humanity I am the Spire Touching the sky Feeling eternal I am the Spire Bitter Illusion
Dreams in the night to Fulfill bro|ken hours Time eating time All that grows are Electric Flowers Faint wisp of light in The land of the waste and wi|re Life hiding life All that grows are Electric Flowers Wasting Wasting Spoiling To share with all the void And no Seeding Rising Rising Replacing life with nothing Time will heal the damage Can you do the same? Not the same for you We are deranged
Now we plumbed the surface No more hope to see mankind Only white eyes To stare into the sun Water under the ground Where life used to hide Something here has happened Evolving life itself


Set in a “not so distant” future the album is an imaginary journey through the wasteland, a devastated Earth, where only a few traces of the extinguished humanity are left. So, in this journey, we will encounter some of these traces: stories, images and audio findings, that sketch out some of the causes that led to this final scenery.
