Blank Forest Udine, Italy

Blank Forest is a prog group formed in 2012 by Luca Moreale (guitar/vocals) and Valerio Simonini (keyboards) who wanted to create new inspiring tracks, trying to blend different genres.
They started working on their pieces on their own (like a studio project) then they called Michele Di Gleria (drums) and Carlo De Biaggio (bass) and definitively decided to form the band.

Track Name: Drawing Lines
Sometimes I ask myself: “Why do I have to fight?”
Every time that I try to make an effort to keep hard
I feel I am losing my time, without going on.
But I don’t want to keep staring at the world, not anymore, not on my own.

Do you remember where is the place where it all began?
The place where all seemed in perfection and without pain.
What happened then? Who was the amazing liar?
I really don’t understand, so now would you tell me

I don’t think that searching I will find
Try to free me from this clutch!

I am waking from this deranged night and I feel ashamed,
I saw the pain inside your eyes looking at him!
I don’t know how you can be without tension and anxiety.
I think your mind will not stand, so please tell me

I don’t think I deserve this state of mind!
you’re supposed to be a messiah?

…and I fall again
In this life the thing I long for is a reason why!

In this game I’m acting as a blind?
You are chosen to fight against my world?

Every second that I waste is lost,
But it’s the only way to keep in control.
If I look behind the door of your soul
Your heart is bleeding out of pain.
Track Name: Passion Brings The Energy
Looking at the past,
Longing for the next day,
Life appears something different
From the other ones.
Every single action
Evolves from a small bud,
If you seek from
The height of humanity.

I can feel the fire in me
Burning from the inside,
But I can’t pretend to love
Without an exhausting fight!
I saw you in your light
But if I came it won’t shine!
Come to me, my friend
Bring me energy to rise again!

All the scenery
Set on fire but
You didn’t know that
I have risen up!

What I thought and
What it meant to be...
Now I think I’ve been
Scarred in my eyes.

“I have risen up/I think I’ve been scarred in my eyes
Come to me my friend/All the scenery set on fire
I can feel the fire in me/Every action evolves from a small bud
I saw you in your light/Life appears different”
Track Name: Falling Stars
When I fell at your feet
Honored by your statement
Everything became much
Clearer to me

And I thought at the meaning
Of the entire life
Hoping one day I'll be
Wise enough to speak

But even if you're gone
Your presence still remains
I can't go on alone
Because outside still rains
I feel your soul behind
Showing me the way
Allowing me to find
What I’m looking for each day

And I stared at your grave
Praying for a change
What I needed was
The brave to face my aim

And memories returned to me
As a falling star
So I could see what you’ve
Left me

But even if you're gone
Your presence still remains
I can't go on alone
Because outside still rains
I feel your soul behind
Showing me the way
Allowing me to find
What I’m looking for each day

(ohohoh ohohoh…)

Every story
Has to end
What we’d (should) do is
To stand

So go outside
Go ahead
Take a breath and
Don't cry
Track Name: Landslip
In the calm of persuasion
Dreams deep in your heart
Seems to be peaceable
It’s like a fairy paradise

But what would happen
If I shouted out loud?
All is consequence of lies,
The truth is no more visible.

Just keep it in your hands
Hear its weak beating
Synchronizing with your heart
Creating a powerful stroke

Now the ground is shaking
The horizon changes height
I don’t really know
How long I can stand

Run, dodge the stones
Before someone becomes your grave
Look, there’s a man
I have to rescue him, he looks like me
Why, he doesn’t turn?
I am calling with my lungs in throat
Wait, hurl the truth away
Maybe it’s the only way… to stay

Now the ground is shaking
The horizon changes height
I don’t really know
How long I can stay… alone

Maybe I don’t want the truth
If it makes someone hurt
The ground isn’t shaking now
My soul can fly away
Track Name: Crystal Eyes
Wind, stroking my face
Is the affection that I ever needed
The air dries my eyes
But I can still look at the skyline.

How many times you have to decide?
Between what's good or bad
Maybe good is not sweet,
Sometimes good is hard to deal with.

We try to make choices with wisdom
Taking care from the past
But sometimes it holds you
And you just don't know what to do.

This time I want to get free,
Free from people, enemies, world...
Is it worth doing? Free from life…
I don't want to waste it, not anymore.

I just can't forget my family
They gave me everything
I was keen on living life
It was a discover to me

They taught me how to live
How to keep going on
Without leaving back anything
Respecting the world

(III-The Break)
Now I can see the mistake,
I lived with no fears
Without troubles on mind
Growing life became scary.

And I still remember
The day my mother died
We were so frightened,
At the mercy of the time!

Emotions got the upper hand
Over our uncontrolled acts
My dad got out of mind
I remember his hands on me

But I was still a child,
Just started to grow
I'd like to react to him
I had to wait more.

Years were passing
Hate was rising
I was growing with a mad
Who made me sad

Sometimes I would
Just have killed him.
Maybe now I would not be
What I hate so much!

[The darkest hour is just before the dawn]

But my mother taught me
To respect each life
I just can't understand
Why she loved him

I had to split my soul from
present and my desires.
My only aim is her,
I just can't let her go!

Years and years I've tried
Now I'm a man, don't forget
I want to start again
And share all my life with her

There's a new life in front of me
I won't do what my father did
She’s so perfect to me
I'm honest, that's what I wish.

One day of our life together
I heard her crying
She came to me
With her vest in her blood

She said she betrayed me
But regret was so hard
That she couldn't go on
And stabbed herself

I held her in my arms,
I stared her in the eyes
While heart was stopping.
It took a lot to be consumed.

I didn't call the aid
We didn't want to

What can you do more
If you've given all you have?

Life has no meaning to me.
I don't want to go on
Hoping in something
That never comes.

There's no light
At the end of my path.
Try to find yours,
Mine's just ended.

[When your strength becomes your weakness,
your efforts to survive will lead you to death.
We're only lip reading life without hearing
the lullaby of groans that come from the deepest abyss.]
Track Name: Crucial
Once more fading
Standing by the wind

Sorrow, hate and
finding words to explain

'Cause I'm
facing shadows in the night
healing scars inside my mind
So watch the haze between our eyes
thinking to what I've
