The Mother Code

(2020)

"The Mother Code" è un album che ha uno stile apparentemente più scanzonato rispetto ai precedenti, di matrice rock con moltissime influenze e sperimentazioni blues e rap.
Silversnake si diverte a giocare con le parole e simbolismi. I testi rimangono sempre molto criptici e metaforici e anche quando toccano argomenti delicati e pesanti sono abbinati a melodie morbide.
In questo album vi è un forte richiamo verso l'infanzia. Quasi un voler tornare indietro in un periodo più sereno e leggero (ma è mai stato effettivamente così?). Forse un tornare indietro per soffocare taluni rimpianti di cose non fatte e sogni distrutti, per non aver dato fiducia e ascolto alla voce del proprio cuore.
Per difendersi mette in atto comportamenti autodistruttivi per annullare sentimenti ed emozioni. Si cerca di riempire un vuoto, ma Il cuore diventa freddo e pesante quasi a non voler "sentire" più nulla. Una condizione di pre- morte.
Silversnake sente il tempo scandire sempre più ferocemente e inesorabilmente i suoi passi. I giorni sempre più corti e veloci che ci schiacciano voluttuosamente e si vede sempre più vicina alla porta oltre la quale c'è l'ignoto. Qui traspare la forte paura di morire, la paura di non potere più nulla.
Il Codice è la chiave con cui percepire la fluttuante prospettiva del Tempo, ma Her Snakeness la seppellisce, rendendo l'Universo una inespressiva e irreale proiezione olografica di un punto che si espande all'infinito. E' un riverbero . Una burla della luce che ci fa percepire tridimensionalmente una realtà bidimensionale . Esattamente come in uno schermo televisivo. E quindi continueremo ancora a vedere il tempo in modo sfocato con una direzione irreversibile.
La copertina rappresenta lo scollamento dalla bidimensionalità per diventare tridimensionali . E anche la ribellione di una parte di Silversnake, rabbiosa contro se stessa, per essere arrivata a essere imperturbabile e insensibile come la dura pietra.
Ogni album è strettamente interconnesso all'altro. L'insieme dei titoli di tutti gli album formano una frase che si completerà al termine di un percorso personale condiviso.

TESTI e IMMAGINI

The Empty Fullness

Silversnake Michelle The Empty FullnessGray rain in my thoughts
in the silence of my room
and all the books are singing
I believed it was you

There's wind in my hair
and fog in my own lies,
smell of seduction of wine
and cigarettes
to spite myself.
This is the world of the snakes
I know how I felt,
words in lake

So please what is your name?
I worry about my blame
no one really used to care
about me
no! Do not eat!
I'm insane

Plastic

Silversnake Michelle PlasticWe're all together here
dreamy lights cross my way
New lines on my face
with each step I take,

Why 're you running now?
if you get wrong, it throws you off your feet
Life is not a race
Where're you gonna go?

I wanna change the world
But something went wrong with me
All I want is to hurl
all the wars against the sea

Dancing on my past
I see my actions back to me
I wasn't the last
To know it's time to change street

Achievable or irretrievable?
I'll never come back
In plastic way
I don't wanna live.
Don't call me!! I don't regret

Irreversible and impersonal?
I'm kinda sick of this place!!
In plastic way, in plastic world
I don't wanna stay anyway

Your song in talent show
It's not my cup of tea, you know it!
I can't sing, I sense unease
as hiding camel toe

Don't do plastic art
the world deserve truth you know
you're not an artist now
you will be when pigs fly

The deepest part of me
suggests we are not on the same page
I follow my true art
Go goodbye

Blue Glue

Silversnake Michelle Blue GlueI feel November is loving you
I saw the candle, and you blew
A Guilty Moon told me truth
My heart plays music in Blue glue

When your string is on blue mood
And when the words are only blew
when your thoughts are far from you
My heart drowns music in Blue glue

When you wear a pull with a stain
Don’t be so shy and fuck the shame
You wash ice-cream and will be clean
Blue glue has melted in your brain

Every night and every day
I was thinking how I stayed
Every day and every night
I became a woman and I say goodbye

Every sun and every moon
We stay together with blue glue
Every moon and every sun
I said goodbye to this old man

I feel September rains on you
I broke the handle with a glove
A guilty Sun told me:“ fool !!”
My heart plays music in Blue glue

When your world is on blue mood
Put your emotions in groove
I change the street far from you
My heart closes music in Blue glue

When you wear a pull with stain
Don’t be so shy and do it again
Lick chocolate and will be clean
Blue glue inside washing machine

When you think that all is sloshed by rain
You fall in love and fall in life again
It’s time to close your eyes and will snow the fame
You see life is not still the same

And when the planes are ready to fly
You go away without wondering why
You must be proud and strong of your light
It blinds the wrong and always brights the right

Irreversible And Massive Necrosis

Silversnake Michelle Irreversible And Massive NecrosisAnother pip against stars today
It depends to the guest and the mess just out of the day
It’s hot and I don’t know how do I stay
Joy steals a slice of time to save her sick mom and wind is praying
And your life flows normally in a boring way (boring way)
And the ants grow in your season, so your winters are never the same.

Stinking love made troubles out of the dance
Strange clouds make shadows darking white town’s fence
Suddenly metal creatures rain down today
Sick, smelly snow falls in flakes, Don’t touch, ooh it’s too late
Verve to the night, Still you cry
So virtuality grow in your brain, and the Earth couldn’t be the same.

They crush the pressure
Irreversible and massive necrosis of primes
Picture of Escher
Where space is inside the time

They threaten with flesher
universe loses control of the chain of pain
They prance on the grime
Irreversible and massive necrosis of primes

Disordered sequences of numbers are banned
And that creatures wanna kill us stealing the sun
It’s cold and grey and I don’t know how do I stay
Joy steals a picture of life to save herself and wind is not fair
And your life it’s not normal, you fly away
Tinny mantis raids your season, cause you never catch the prey

My absent presence made me lose
the now of my days;
you broke away what’s in your eyes,
cause you never saw the way;
Hey now I feel I wanna cry
Oh no, no no
I feel I wanna kiss the life
Stop think it’s dangerous to breakthru doors

They crush the pressure
Irreversible and massive necrosis of primes
Picture of Esher
Where space is inside the time

They threaten with flesher
universe loses control of the chain of pain
They prance on the grime
Irreversible and massive necrosis of primes

They put a bounty on me
Cause I never lost my faith, so they can’t win
Pilgrim of years
kingdom of tears
victim of smears of gears of fears (they lose again)
wisdom of prayers
million of chairs
reptilian on the hares again (they lose again)

(so I can feel loneliness of twins)

Eukaryotes

Silversnake Michelle EukaryotesYou talk to me but
I don't understan'it
you serve the mighty
I don't understan'it
you want me do it
I don't understand why

I'm mad at Nature
but you don't understand it
I feel She's faker
you don't understand why
a strange behavior
the daily war has begun

Faith is fake illogical
but you don't understand it
I say we are animals
but you don't understand it
you think I'm snarky
and I feel your fear

Why you feel so nervous?
I don't understan'it
you touch the surface
I don't understand why
I've still to learn that
you don't want find the truth

The secret of life is inside of us
but too hidden and too black to see it
we are eukaryotes, nothing more
but then why do I feel...? (how?)

Do you ever
wonder what's life?
and how was born the Sun?
who is your God and where He comes from?
surreal picture of your mind? or don't?

Do you ever wonder
why in a purple twilight
we are just a lonely shade?
Maybe we’re just unreal
games of light
the truth is set in the frame

Do you really settle
for being a brushstroke
of a painting you'll never see
and whose meaning you'll never know?
made by another invisible self

When I was a child, I saw the dew turn black.
why don't you dig in-
-to the mud with me?
it will eat us , we'll rot to feed the leaves
(I let my nightmare come to the surface)

The Earth orbits the lie
you have a distorted view
as when you look in
the back of the spoon
try to imagine
a sky without moon

You think I'm loser
cause I talk about the Death
you try to abuse Her
but what scares you?
why can't you see the goal?
I don't understand

I look in the mirror
I see Time mocking us
obsession to get old
wrinkles eat my skin
do you really think that
botox takes you back in time?
(your twenty years old are now faded images)

32 December

Silversnake Michelle 32 DecemberA sunny night of a spring squalls
I built a music-life
I see a cloud made of flowers that falls
I'm looking at the moon and she smiles?

I see the world that turns on pink
and mountains of scented skunks
and river-horses skate and wink
I wonder what I have drunk

So in my mind will shine Silversnake,
my insanity painted this fake
So in my mind will broke Silversnake,
32 December red wine will rain

I frolic on my mistakes
I wanna marry Silversnake
she stumbles upon her days
she said "I do" and after she fainted

Dancing on my mistakes
I see rainbow where swims an hake
Don't want me kill again
I do mush with your brain

I flow the space in time today
I bend my life like a game
to shiver sliver of slippery slimy snake
It's 32 December again

ItAlien

Silversnake Michelle ItAlienMercury, Venus and Earth
their dimensions erode
Mars alone in its hell

Jupiter and Saturn so cruel
Uranus and Neptune
give blue to the dark

My sex dries up and I disappear
in the shade of the shade of the shade but in the shade
The universe is painted

One , two , three
what's your name?
my throat you squeeze
I'm falling down , I wanna see the world through all the appearances
"Solve et coagula" it's not a concept wrong
cause speech catches its own momentum sick and cursed.
I play with your words
theatre of absurd
you feel the structure of birds?
Not human on board
my cells and new vibe
my it-alien and dumb eyes

"You don't have The Voice or X-factor!"...but who are you?
who are you to judge me and my art? Fuck you!
just a loser geek on his way to slur land
I shall save myself-self from your venomous tongue
copycats' world in devil's dung
you're such useless assholes that
you don't even serve as manure.
mankind no more demure
it's hint .
All the monsters around,
it's the Evil inside
all the shady and sticky souls
you've got no temper at all
spare me your platitudes
with a no sense choice in all issues
a new mitosis.

Turn off the light......!

Just A Name

Silversnake Michelle Just A NameA new chapter of story of my life
It's a book full of emotions as a goldmine
with Greg and Daniel and red wine
and rock music comes with us tonight
around and around and I write.

While they talk about everyday life
Dire Straits make me fly out of all my strife
and I float in my thoughts and the room is white
and I feel my hungry, angry life
it seems so far away....my dreams on Milky way

Roger Waters' bass spell out "Hey you"
he brings me back to reality with my crew
And so I start to talk out of the blue
about the power of number number two
that's just my point of view

In their eyes there is a quizzical look
they gaze at me without having understood
I say they must keep the secret or they will die
they joke at me and say I seem Cleopatra tonight
So erotic and cruel liar...
It's better don't ask why

What's left of us?
what we're discussing? (you know I'm right)
we are just a name, nomen
nominis, nomini
life is a gruesome game/ life is a mysterious tale
just a nomen, nominis, nomini
nomen, nomen ,nomine (again)

I listen to our laughter that echo in the room
I wanna suck intense pleasure of "life perfume"
and ephemeral music gets twisted around
a bit of sadness make my heart grey and wounded
around around around
Emotional breakdown

While I get lost behind my working mind
Red Hot Chili Peppers play for all the night
" Of the beauty and color and scent of a rose
when it withers, only one thing remains"
no hell, no smell, no pain
when we die, we are just a name

What's left of us?
what we're discussing? (you know I'm right)
we are just a name, nomen
nominis, nomini
life is a gruesome game/ life is a mysterious tale
just a nomen, nominis, nomini
nomen, nomen ,nomine (again)

Silversnake

Silversnake Michelle SilversnakeStarry night of lazy fall
I’ll tell myself deepest lie
You know, I see you though if you’re only ghost
Slender moon in the sky
I implored the rain to melt my hardened heart
I prayed for the wind to kidnap me
All my life I‘ve stopped at the start line
Now I've fallen into a black and thick sea

So in my mind, was born SilverSnake
Chasing the dragon now, you lick my brain

I felt the cold stone whisper to me
Trapped in a smell of flowers
I don’t see colors and sounds of history
my sweaty skin and wheezing hours
A nightmare screamed at me 4 and 48
I feel your time is over
your shadow flies away beyond the clouds
I can’t feel your essence anywhere

So in my mind, was born SilverSnake
Your insanity sucked my brain

And walking on my mistakes
I’ll see a new life on the horizon.
And breaking this golden cage
I feel the lie of my freedom
And walking on my mistakes
I scratched the walls of darkness
And breaking this golden cage
I feel the night in brightness

A bird deceives me and steals away my soul
My emotions are lost in time
tears of rain slip away from my cold face
This is the finish line

You know I know you’re praying for Silversnake
Your insanity turned off my brain.

Gray rain in my thoughts

in the silence of my room

and all the books are singing

I believed it was you


There's wind in my hair

and fog in my own lies,

smell of seduction of wine

and cigarettes

to spite myself.

This is the world of the snakes

I know how I felt,

words in lake


So please what is your name?

I worry about my blame

no one really used to care

about me

no! Do not eat!

I'm insane

We're all together here

dreamy lights cross my way

New lines on my face

with each step I take,


Why 're you running now?

if you get wrong, it throws you off your feet

Life is not a race

Where're you gonna go?


I wanna change the world

But something went wrong with me

All I want is to hurl

all the wars against the sea


Dancing on my past

I see my actions back to me

I wasn't the last

To know it's time to change street


Achievable or irretrievable?

I'll never come back

In plastic way

I don't wanna live.

Don't call me!! I don't regret


Irreversible and impersonal?

I'm kinda sick of this place!!

In plastic way, in plastic world

I don't wanna stay anyway


Your song in talent show

It's not my cup of tea, you know it!

I can't sing, I sense unease

as hiding camel toe


Don't do plastic art

the world deserve truth you know

you're not an artist now

you will be when pigs fly


The deepest part of me

suggests we are not on the same page

I follow my true art

Go goodbye

I feel November is loving you

I saw the candle, and you blew

A Guilty Moon told me truth

My heart plays music in Blue glue


When your string is on blue mood

And when the words are only blew

when your thoughts are far from you

My heart drowns music in Blue glue


When you wear a pull with a stain

Don’t be so shy and fuck the shame

You wash ice-cream and will be clean

Blue glue has melted in your brain


Every night and every day

I was thinking how I stayed

Every day and every night

I became a woman and I say goodbye


Every sun and every moon

We stay together with blue glue

Every moon and every sun

I said goodbye to this old man


I feel September rains on you

I broke the handle with a glove

A guilty Sun told me:“ fool !!”

My heart plays music in Blue glue


When your world is on blue mood

Put your emotions in groove

I change the street far from you

My heart closes music in Blue glue


When you wear a pull with stain

Don’t be so shy and do it again

Lick chocolate and will be clean

Blue glue inside washing machine


When you think that all is sloshed by rain

You fall in love and fall in life again

It’s time to close your eyes and will snow the fame

You see life is not still the same


And when the planes are ready to fly

You go away without wondering why

You must be proud and strong of your light

It blinds the wrong and always brights the right

Another pip against stars today

It depends to the guest and the mess just out of the day

It’s hot and I don’t know how do I stay

Joy steals a slice of time to save her sick mom and wind is praying

And your life flows normally in a boring way (boring way)

And the ants grow in your season, so your winters are never the same.


Stinking love made troubles out of the dance

Strange clouds make shadows darking white town’s fence

Suddenly metal creatures rain down today

Sick, smelly snow falls in flakes, Don’t touch, ooh it’s too late

Verve to the night, Still you cry

So virtuality grow in your brain, and the Earth couldn’t be the same.


They crush the pressure

Irreversible and massive necrosis of primes

Picture of Escher

Where space is inside the time


They threaten with flesher

universe loses control of the chain of pain

They prance on the grime

Irreversible and massive necrosis of primes


Disordered sequences of numbers are banned

And that creatures wanna kill us stealing the sun

It’s cold and grey and I don’t know how do I stay

Joy steals a picture of life to save herself and wind is not fair

And your life it’s not normal, you fly away

Tinny mantis raids your season, cause you never catch the prey


My absent presence made me lose

the now of my days;

you broke away what’s in your eyes,

cause you never saw the way;

Hey now I feel I wanna cry

Oh no, no no

I feel I wanna kiss the life

Stop think it’s dangerous to breakthru doors


They crush the pressure

Irreversible and massive necrosis of primes

Picture of Esher

Where space is inside the time


They threaten with flesher

universe loses control of the chain of pain

They prance on the grime

Irreversible and massive necrosis of primes


They put a bounty on me

Cause I never lost my faith, so they can’t win

Pilgrim of years

kingdom of tears

victim of smears of gears of fears (they lose again)

wisdom of prayers

million of chairs

reptilian on the hares again (they lose again)


(so I can feel loneliness of twins)
