about

Maria Messina Torino, Italy

Le sue ballate, tenere e drammatiche, sono costellate di suoni evocativi fiabe gotiche, richiami folk con echi celtici, misticismi dark: Maria Messina impara a ipnotizzare l’ascoltatore attraverso un pop onirico ed etereo, come gli incantesimi delle streghe. ... more

Track Name: Dulcimer
You never stop telling me that I hurt my self when I burn inside
(I just want to say: “You’ll see”)
And you don’t have to expect anything from me because my hand are tied
(I just want to say: “You’ll see”)

I want to know the reason why I wanna make you mine
Don’t you know it’s better if you go away to cry
I wanna die,I wanna die,I wanna die


I know that you hate the way I keep on eating when I seems to be useless
(I just want to say: “You’ll see”)
But tomorrow you’ll be nice and you will force me to forget my sadness

I want to know the reason why I wanna make you mine
Don’t you know it’s better if you go
I wanna die,I wanna die,I wanna make you mine
So please stay with me another time
I wanna tell you-You’ll be just mine
My power is your fear of remaining solo

I know there will be no why
One day you will be mine
Don’t you know it’s better if you go
I wanna die,I wanna die,I wanna die,I wanna die
Track Name: Just Dust
I would have paid for our home
I would have done anything not to let you go
But because of fucking money I have not
Our life is made of dots
Pull of the spiderwebs on my face
I’m busy eating my nails

I’ll pay for what I’ve done
I don’t mind ‘cause I get used not to have fun
When I’m really happy to stay
I know I will regret of what I’ll say
And you will never understand me
‘cause I tell you too many things

Why aren’t we fool?
Why do we love each other deeply?
Why am I so fool?
Why am I not able to stop me
On this side, the sweet side
Not that side, the suicide

I would have paid for new clothes
I would have done it toasting “many happy returns”
Even if I grow fond of the things
You all know what it means
Memories of day come to an end
Some keep-fake of a friend

Why aren’t we good?
Why do we hate each other easly?
Why am I so fool?
Why am I not able to stop me
On this side, the sweet side
Not that side, the suicide
Track Name: Thora
Thora realized that pray would never change her situation
In nothing she did or she said she never felt some satisfaction

Thora decided “there’s nothing to try”
She wasn’t able to live this life
She destroyed inside the love she received
She was waiting her time

Thora realized that cry would just made her eyes more green that she had
And nothing she did or she said would never made her feel less stupid or sad

Thora decided “there’s nothing to try”
She wasn’t able to live this life
The love she received, the love she had inside were full of fucking lies
She could just kill or die

Thora realized that she was just taking herself for a ride
She deceived herself about her cruel spite and her real goodness to fuck up her inner might

But Thora decided “there’s nothing to try”
She wasn’t able to live this life
She destroyed inside the gave she received
She was waiting her time
Track Name: It isn't true
Tell me about the weakness in me
Is this the only thing you see?
It’s easy to ask a question and wait
Especially if you think I’m tardy

Tell me about the grace you had
When you said to me I’ve got nothing in my hand
I’m sorry but I’m happy to laugh

To laugh
Without explanations to your way to survive
So what can I do?
If I’m a looser too
But you make me feel better than you

I cry, I cry
‘cause I don’t know what is wrong and what is right
So what can I do?
Am I really unable to do?
And I don’t need nobody to tell me
It isn’t true
Track Name: Your mother's crying
I’m falling in a fix I failed my plans
Where is my personal jesus now that I’m his lamb?

It’s like I’ve lost myself assurance
Please put me in chains, again
It’s like I’ve eaten my brain
Keeping on thinking “strange”

Now every shadow looks like a cat
And my old dresses don’t work ‘cause I’m fat
I try to divert my attention
But I am past redemption
And when I’m talking Out of the blue
I look at me I’m doing a monologue

I’ m falling in a fix I’m on the line
Tell everyone you will marry me while your mother’s crying

It’s like I’ve lost myself assurance
Please put me in chains, again
It’s like I’ve lost my brain
Keeping on thinking “strange”

Now every blue light looks like the police
And less and less people believe in peace
And when I’m talking Out of the blue
I look at me I’m a monologue

Ah
People pretend to hate me but they love me
Track Name: The prize is mine
I was in time
The prize is mine
Or I will not appease my fury tonight

The prize is mine
What a clear mind
Be quiet I’m just defending my pride

5 are fingers in one’s hand
4 my eyes and 3 my troops
2 are ears of someone’s head
1 my brain and zero my rules
Track Name: I'm boring
It depends on your point of view
I am still young but I am old too
There are a lot of things I can’t do anymore
And sometimes I feel stupid doing things that I adore

I make myself think positive
I fall asleep just watching the tv
And then I wake up in the middle of the night
I can’t breath, I can’t move and my eyes are fucking wide

Oh I, I could learn to play my violin
Oh I, I’m sitting in a shoe that will never walk
Oh I feel you’re afraid of my speechless speech
Oh I’m boring..

Maybe I am on the loose
I think about too many things so I can’t choose
Meantime time goes by and I
I’m getting old as I’m going out of my mind

It depends on your point of view
I am still young but I am old too
I won and I collected a lot of skills
But I’ve got no job or at least someone who pays my bills!

Oh I, I could learn to play my violin
Oh I, I’m sitting in a shoe that will never walk
Oh I feel you’re afraid of my speechless speech
Oh I’m boring..
Track Name: Clean
It’s always hard to have a clear head
When too many things rely on you
And I feel sad, I get upset
about the one I love being so cold

Time goes by
And I keep still
And I keep on thinking
what is stuff?
There’s too much stuff shutting out my view

It’s time to clear everything out

I set about washing
I set about sweeping
I set about cleaning, about throwing out

You aren’t even able to make
My smallest dream come true
But maybe like anybody else
I’m never satisfied
Everything around me seems very useless
And I am sure, yes I am sure
I’ve never asked for any of this
Track Name: Proud
Desire let me fall
Yellow paper on the wall
You don’t know how I feel
You don’t know how I feel

Damn hate!
You’re always wrong so wrong so wrong so
Why have you chosen me?
Should I be proud of it?

Desire let me fall
Yellow paper on the wall
My nails grow up inside out
You don’t know how I feel
You don’t know how I feel

Damn hate!
You’re always wrong so wrong so wrong so
Why have you chosen me?
Should I be proud of it?


How can I change the best of me?
I’ve never met anyone so altruistic
But this time I wanna be able to grow up
Track Name: What's a lie
You don’t know anything about me, I don’t give a damn
That is my chance to show you who I really am
I will not tell you that I’m full of fucking problem
I’m sure I’ll find something to say shaking your hand

I’m happy to be here
And I am of good cheer
I’m everything but shy
But these are all lies

When do I understand that no one cares about the real truth of my mind?
When do I understand my paranoias make seem unkind?
I don’t need to feed this hell
But what else can I do? I’m still talking about myself

It’s too hard to pretend
Because I don’t feel glad
I just want to be quiet
This is not a lie

Oh nobody loves you as nobody loves me
But there’s no feeling
I carry on wondering when I learn to lie

If I say I’m fine
Will everything start shining?
Will I believe I’m kind
Will you really be mine?
So what’s a lie?
Track Name: Note alla notte
Ho atteso tutto il tempo che hai voluto per farti contento
e ho distratto l'ansia regalandomi pace che invento
Pensieri che raduno e poi sputo in anelli di fumo
La pelle è profumata ma non voglio vedere nessuno

Così aspetto il film, aspetto qui le parole che voglio sentire da te
Le parole che sono carezze ma ignorano che
Mio malgrado la notte è più affascinante di te

Ho sonno e mi addormento, per un attimo ancora ti sento
Poi ogni suono è immagine e confondo il respiro col vento
Mi credi, mi dispiace
Apro gli occhi ma ormai tutto tace
La porta è lì davanti ma di entrare non sono capace.
