about

There is a precise, EPIC, definite moment in everybody's life, in which we realize - we really and deeply realize, internalize and accept - that we are not immortal.

Maybe vanity is just the condition of arrogance before the complete realization of our mortality? Is there an antidote to the dismay of this discovery? Maybe loneliness and isolation, or maybe falling in love is an answer...

..or maybe this commentary is getting too complicated and longer than the song itself!! ;-)

lyrics

Fountain of youth

Verse:
Time is flying
Dreams are rising
I'm realizing I stare at the horizon
all day

I'm a lion
On an island
In this silence I am my own tyrant
I obey

Chorus:
Looking for you
As winters go by
But I'm hiding the truth
Inside of my mind

Flowing through life
we don’t even realize it’s a short, short ride

Verse:
Love’s a liar
Makes me higher
Steals my time as I’m lost in the deep of
your eyes

All these moments
That are flowing
Will be frozen in my memory
Unredeemed

Chorus:
Looking for you
As winters go by
But I'm hiding the truth
Inside of my mind

Flowing through life
we don’t even realize it’s a short, short ride

Post chorus:
Life crusader
I’m a sailor
Always in search for the truth

From the valleys
to the mountains
I'll search for the fountain of youth

about

Highspeeddirt Milano, Italy

Formed in 2001, after years playing live covers of the biggest hard rock bands, we finally started recording own songs.
'Playing Hard', was published 2012.
After 4 years, 3 marriages and a total of 7 sons from the 4 band members, our passion for music made us win laziness and find the time to write and record our new EP. Definitely more fecund than musically prolific ;-) But we don’t give up!
