Insonnia chimica

Piccola confessione: ho sofferto di insonnia e sono stato costretto a ricorrere ai sonniferi. Ora sto bene.
"Chemical Insomnia", ottava traccia dell'album The Quantum Enigma degli Epica, parla della dipendenza da sonniferi, dell'insonnia da astinenza e delle allucinazioni ad essa collegate. Musicalmente si tratta di una delle canzoni migliori dell'album, se non proprio la migliore. Da notare, tra l'altro, che nel ritornello riprende la melodia simil-cinese dell'intro strumentale "The Fifth Guardian"
Per un'analisi dettagliata, vi rimando alla mia recensione dell'album.

Ecco "The Fifth Guardian" + "Chemical Insomnia" (da 3:04):


Musica di "The Fifth Guardian": Isaac Delahaye, Coen Janssen, Miro Rodenberg.
Musica di "Chemical Insomnia": Isaac Delahaye & Epica.
Testo di "Chemical Insomnia": Simone Simons.

Proseguite per leggere il bellissimo testo.

Everlasting nights leave all views behind, 
Limits will become less clear and
A misty memory played out in a dream.
This endeavor is causing fear.
That's why I can't explain this stabbing pain!
Come undone in nightly rhyming, 
It's time for me to roll the dice.

Absent sanctity is shifting gravity!

Addiction's growing faster, making you go insane.
Ivory fangs are smiling, you'll have to break the habit.
Imprisonment's appraoching, catching the savages.
The mirror's magic showing chemical insomnia.

Don't give in to all of this, dive into ecstatic bliss!
Tame the lion that's hiding the need to be free!

Waking sunset finds, making restless minds.
Wistful moments need enclosure.
A new hysteria is fading gravity
Which is slowly taking over.
That's why I can't unwind all thoughts aligned!
Floating on rivers that are drying, 
I fear the beast is rising high!

Your intuition's fading, a thumping sound impedes.
The daybreak is awaking chemical insomnia.

Don't give in to all of this, dive into ecstatic bliss!
Don't you believe what the sands of time see?
Tame the lion that's hiding the need to be free
And the monsters that consume your energy!

Your barbaric puppets live between the cracks of lies from hate revived.
Silver secrets shining through the night.
An enslaved fool in search of burning light from medicine contrived.
Golden treasures turning off the lights.

Forbidden fruit tastes better when it can numb the bran.
The outcome of the future is looking quite insane.
White bricks and darkened stones are building the fundament.
The silence's calling out for chemical insomnia.

Don't give in to all of this, dive into ecstatic bliss!
Tame the lion that's hiding the need to be free!
And you should not believe what the sands of time see.
Free the lion that's hiding your identity!
Fight the monsters that consume your entity!
