      The man was paralyzed and  would  appear on stage in his wheelchair...RIP
      And now what will  I do, I do not know what to say
      it's  cold just alike when I was alone
      I've always written the verses with the pen
       not Strict  work orders .
      I always hated  pigs and pimps
      And those who stole a salary
      The fakes  making a  career
      With certain services out of hours
      I will sing my songs along the road
      And will address  life  hard-facedly
      A warrior without a country and without a sword
      With one foot in the past
      And the look straight ahead and open in the future.

      I spent four centuries of life
      And I made many travels in the deserts
      Because I wanted to say what I think
      I wanted to go ahead with open eyes
      Now I should make songs
      With the exact dosages of experts
      Maybe then dress like a fool
      To look like a  moron in  concerts.
      I will sing my songs along the road
      And will address  life hard-facedly
      A warrior without a country and without a sword
      With one foot in the past
      And the look straight ahead and open in the future.

      I do not know if I was ever poet
      And I do not care to know
      I'll fill the glasses with my wine
      I do not know how it tastes  but I invite you to drink it
      And the  mental masturbations
      I leave them to those who are mature  at  the right point
       I want to tell my songs to those
      Who know how to masturbate for the taste.
      I will sing my songs to the road
      And will address  life  hard-facedly
      A warrior without a country and without a sword
      With one foot in the past
      And the look straight ahead and open in the future.
      And I do not know if I will have friends to  supply  me  with a  chorus
      Or if I will only have  unfamiliar faces
      I will sing my songs to all of them
      And at the end of the road
      I 'll be able to  say that  I have lived my days

      Ok yeah....Allright
      Tonight I'm staying with you
      Ok Yeah... You'll see
      Tonight You'll die!
      Take all you want
      Tonight we won't ever leave each other
      It's your lips making me cry by now
      Sometimes when you kiss me I believe I'd die
      If you weren't around I could not live
      My life is only yours and you know this
      Ok Yeah
      Take whatever you want
      Tonight we won't ever leave each other
      Ok Yeah
      Just do whatever you want to me
      But remember that you'll cry afterwards
      Ok Yeah......Allright
            Original Italian Lyrics   Ok sì... va beh!
      Questa notte sto con te.
      Ok sì... vedrai...
      Questa notte morirai!
      Ok Ok Ok sì... Ok sì!
      Prendi tutto quel che vuoi!
      Questa notte non ci lasceremo mai!
      Sono le labbra tue che mi fan piangere oramai.
      Quando mi baci a volte credo che io morirei.
      Se non ci fossi tu io non potrei vivere.
      La mia vita è solo tua e tu lo sai.
      Ok sì... va beh!
      Ok... sì... va beh! beh! ... va beh!
      Ok sì!!
      Prendi tutto ciò che vuoi!
      Questa notte non ci lasceremo mai!!
      Ok sì!
      Fammi tutto quel che vuoi!
      Ma ricordati che dopo piangerai!!
      Ok sì!!
      Ok sì!!     They used to be  singer Vasco Rossi's first band...This song would  have been just perfect for Vasco's style imho......

      Review by loserboy
       Now here is a great recording that will please all fans of Italian Prog. Sophisticated yet delicately beautiful tension building prog with a touch of the ol' psycho - bizarre. This is in my opinion BANCO's finest hour with amazing keyboard work. "Non Mi Rompete" is one of my all time favorite progressive rock tracks as it reaches out with a very sweet spirtual element. This is pure classic prog of the highest intelligence which will please all fans of PFM and Le ORME. "Io Sono nato libero" is a complete recording and offers a wide range from the organ drenched materpiece "Canto Nomande Per Un Prigioniero Politico" the acoustic guitar Soliloquy "Non Mi Rompete". Once again all the lyrics are in Italian so be warned for those who are linguistic-centric! For the rest this will be an album of choice. What always stands out for me on this album is the amount of classical piano used and how well it mixes witht eh rest of the instruments. Fabulous music.....It is essential!  
      umb's note: Saw them twice......Great Concerts .....Talented musicians....One of their secrets is the 2 keyboards players ( Nocenzi Bros.)
      Canto nomade...Nomad chant for a political prisoner
      What are you, city non-city? Lyrics start of " Subtle city"
      Non mi rompete ( leave me alone)
      Dopo ..Niente e' piu' lo stesso  ( afterwards..Nothing is the same anymore)

      Strage di Reggio Emilia [Reggio Emilia Massacre]: Five Trade Unionists, including three Italian Partisan veterans, are shot by police in Reggio Emilia, Italy. Following the announcement in June 1960 by the fascist MSI party that its national conference will be held in Genoa, a city famous for its resistance to Fascism, workers in Genoa organised a series of wildcat strikes.
      In clashes with police, one anti-Fascist trade unionist is killed. In response, the Italian General Confederation of Labour calls a national strike. In the city of Reggio Emilia, 20,000 workers take to the streets. The only 'official' space allowed - the Verdi Hall which has 600 seats - is too small to contain the crowd, so a group of 300 workers from the Officine Meccaniche Reggiane (Reggiane Mechanical Workshops) gather in front of the War memorial, singing anti-Fascist songs.
      The police charge and attack the crowd with tear gas and water canon. Workers man barricades and fight back. Dejected by the resistance of the protesters, the police take out their guns and start shooting. Five are killed and sixteen are wounded.

      Those killed:
      · Lauro Farioli (b. 1938), aged 22, married father of one.
      · Ovidio Franchi (b. 1941), aged 22, the youngest of the fallen.
      · Marino Serri (b. 1919), aged 41, a veteran of the 76th Partisan Brigade (Squadre di azione patriottica).
      · Afro Tondelli (b. 1924), aged 36, also a veteran of the 76th Partisan Brigade (Squadre di azione patriottica).
      · Emilio Reverberi (b. 1921), aged 39 years, a veteran of the 144a Brigata Garibaldi.

      The dead were imortalised in the famous song by Fausto Amodei entitled 'Per i morti di Reggio Emilia' (To the Dead of Reggio Emilia).

      "Compagno Ovidio Franchi, compagno Afro Tondelli, / e voi Marino Serri, Reverberi e Farioli / dovremo tutti quanti aver d'ora in avanti / voialtri al nostro fianco per non sentirci soli" (Comrade Ovidio Franchi, comrade Afro Tondelli / and you, Marino Serri, Reverberi and Farioli / from now on, we'll act as if you were beside us / by our side forever, so not to feel alone.)
      You comrade and citizen, you brother partisan
      let's hold all by the hand in these saddest days:
      again in Reggio Emilia, again down there in Sicily
      some comrades have fallen by the hand of the fascists

      And again like in the past days all Italy is swept
      by raging winds and the storm is blowing

      Ovidio Franchi died at the age of nineteen
      for those who feel tired or are prey to doubt.
      Lauro Farioli died so to remedy your fault
      if you've already forgotten Duccio Galimberti.

      They all died about twenty, they died for our future,
      they all died like old partisans.

      Marino Serri died, so did Afro Tondelli,
      but all our brothers have kept their eyes dry.
      Comrades, never forger that this bitter blood
      shed in Reggio Emilia is our own blood.

      Blood of our own blood, nerves of our own nerves
      just like the blood of the Cervi brothers (seven brothers killed by the fascists).

      The only true friend staying beside us now
      is always the same who was with us on the mountains,
      and the enemy is always and will always be the same
      as that we fought against on the mountains and in Spain

      And it's the same song that we have to sing:
      We got worn shoes, and yet we've to go on.

      Comrade Ovidio Franchi, comrade Afro Tondelli,
      and you, Marino Serri, Reverberi and Farioli,
      from now on, we'll act as if you were beside us,
      by our side forever, so not to feel alone.

      Fallen of Reggio Emilia, get out from your grave,
      get out and sing with us Bandiera Rossa (red flag),
      get out and sing with us Bandiera Rossa!
      Cervi brothers ( mentioned in song) massacre
