"Before The Apes Came" as written by and Stefano Tappari....
At the foot of the high mountain
There's a land where you can speak with your mind
Along the streets a multitude of temples, consecrated to
grotesque idols, burn incenses to celebrate the time
The time of forgiveness

Creatures living in this place
can teach you how to read dreams
Rivers flowing through this ground
carry the purity of silver

Androgynous beings card an innumerable variety of precious silks,
used to dry tears of joy
Used to dry tears of joy...

I can perceive the majestic presence
of the bull-man, who reigned here for centuries,
before the apes came, before the apes came
before the apes came, the apes... apes...

He was adored by legions of half-fish beings,
later absorbed by the sea bed and sunk into the sweet wool
Now he's sleeping forever in the red house,
near the magnificent stream

The gong rings to remind
the interrupted rhythm of his noble breathing
The gong rings to remind
the interrupted rhythm of his breathing
