Music and lyrics composed by Ersilia Prosperi. Additional lyrics by Amy Denio. Produced by Amy Denio. Recorded at Litho Studios in Seattle by Floyd Reitsma in October, 2013. Mastered by Chris Hanzsek.


Once upon a time there was a man blown back behind (C'era una volta c'era un uomo saltato dietro)
by winds of greed; the devil's need for once upon a time (da venti di avidità, il bisogno del diavolo per 'C'era una volta')

Pisces crises (crisi pesci)
pricey slices (fette costosi)
fleece the sheep (al vello della pecora)
take more and keep in stasis (prendere più e mantenere in stasi)
and the basis of these cases... (e' la base di questi casi ...)

Watch the faces, loose the laces (guarda le facce, sciogliere i lacci)
that bind us blind (che si legano a noi ciechi)
and hold us tight (e tenerci stretti)
we can stop this craziness with roses (siamo in grado di fermare questa follia con le rose)

OU is amongst us. Spotted at the circus, in a jazz club, in line at a mall during Christmastime, singing and laughing with a group of pygmies, partaking in a Thai cooking class. OU waits with psychedelic calm to show its contents, sound and motion. It's here, still floating in its simple form, full of energy and ready for a deep conversation with all beings on this planet. ... more
