Shock In My Town - Lyrics by Battiato Franco

Shock in my town velvet underground
Shock in my town velvet underground
Ho sentito urla di furoredi generazioni, senza piu
` passato, di neo-primitivirozzi cibernetici signori degli anelli orgoglio dei manicomi.
Ho incontrato allucinazioni.
Stiamo diventando come degli insetti; simili agli insetti.
Nelle mie orbite si scontrano tribu
` di sub-urbani, di aminoacidi.
Latenti shock addizionali, shock addizionalisveglia, sveglia kundalini, sveglia kundaliniper scappare via dalla paranoiacome dopo un viaggio con la mescalinache finisce male nel ritorno.
