about

Since the 19th century countless wars have been following one another up to these days.
And many civilians have been oppressed, crushed and overcome.

Each verse is made by 2 Haiku - a very short poem found in japanese literature, made by 3 sentences and 17 sound units (known as "on" or morae), usually distributed in three phrases of five, seven and five "on" respectively, with nature and seasonal references.

lyrics

Yellow Leaves

Verse:
Wet shoes at sunset
Remembering the good days
-Soldiers are marching

Raging winds of hate
The whipping branches shake us
-From the tree of life

Chorus:
Yellow Leaves
From the trees we’re falling down
one by one over the ground

Yellow Leaves
Boots are walking over, walking over us
and the summer’s far to come

Verse:
Mist in the morning
Hiding colours of the soul
-my wounds are burning

Thundering loud guns
Your voice is getting thinner
-Six feet below the ground

Chorus:
Yellow Leaves
From the trees we’re falling down
one by one over the ground

Yellow Leaves
Boots are walking over, walking over us
and the summer’s far to come


Bridge:
Raging winds of hate
The whipping branches shake us
From the tree of life
As my wounds are burning

Soldiers marching on
Your voice is getting thinner
As we're falling one by one over the ground

And the summer is still so far too come
And the summer is still so far to come ...


Chorus:
Yellow Leaves
From the trees we’re falling down
one by one over the ground

Yellow Leaves
Boots are walking over, walking over us
and the summer’s far to come

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!
