    So after eurovision I (together with like half of europe apparently) became obsessed with Måneskin and I gotta say, the lyrics are just *chef's kiss*. There's this topic that draws through their songs that reminds me of that one speach from black sails.

    "They paint the world full of shadows and then tell their children to stay close to the light. Their light. Their reasons. Their judgements. Because in the darkness there be dragons. But it isn't true. We can prove that it isn't true. In the dark there is discovery. There is possibility. There is freedom in the dark, once someone has illuminated it."

    Sidenote, I don't speak italian, so my understanding of the lyrics is completely reliant on translations.

    Their lyrics resonate that same thought to me, of being angry at the limits other people impose on you based on their fears. The complete unwillingness to accept those limits, to be scared and judgemental - both of yourself and others.

    "E quindi prendimi, mordimi, toglimi tutto
    And so take me, bite me, strip me of everything
    Continuerò a non avere la paura del buio
    I still won't be afraid of the dark
    Ed anche quando sarò giù per terra distrutto
    When I'll be on the ground, shattered
    Continuerò a non avere la paura del buio
    I still won't be afraid of the dark
    E quindi sputami, strappami i vestititi di dosso
    And so spit on me, tear my clothes off of me
    Continuerò a non avere la paura del buio
    I still won't be afraid of the dark
    E quindi comprami, vendimi, fammi di tutto
    And so buy me, sell me, do everything to me
    Sei soltanto tu ad avere la paura del buio, noi no
    You're the only one afraid of the dark, not us
    Noi no, io no, io
    Not us, not me, me"
    - La paura del buio

    "She" here means Marlena, their muse, the personifications of the message of their band, of freedom, creativity, art, acceptance. This verse especially carries such a shameless hope and ambition. Climbing to unseen peaks, illuminating people's weaknesses, isn't that just like running straight into the dark with open arms? Of illuminating it to find possibility and freedom?

    "E il cielo piano piano qua diventa trasparente
    And the sky is slowly becoming transparent here
    Il sole illumina le debolezze della gente
    The sun is illuminating the people's weaknesses
    Una lacrima salata bagna la mia guancia mentre
    A salty tear wets my cheek, while
    Lei con la mano mi accarezza in viso dolcemente
    She sweetly caresses my face with her hand
    Col sangue sulle mani scalerò tutte le vette
    With blood on my hands I'll climb all the peaks
    Voglio arrivare dove l'occhio umano si interrompe
    I want to get where the human eye stops
    Per imparare a perdonare tutte le mie colpe
    In order to learn to forgive all of my sins
    Perché anche gli angeli, a volte, han paura della morte
    Because sometimes even angels are afraid of death
    Che mi è rimasto un foglio in mano e mezza sigaretta
    Just a paper sheet and half a cigarette are left in my hand
    Corriamo via da chi c'ha troppa sete di vendetta
    Let's run away from those who are too thirsty for revenge
    Da questa Terra ferma perché ormai la sento stretta
    From this motionless land, because I'm feeling it stifling now
    Ieri ero quiete perché oggi sarò la tempesta
    Yesterday I was quiet because today I'll be the storm"
    - Torna a casa

    Where the verse in torna a casa already carries that imagery of illuminating the dark, the chorus of vent'anni doesn't only do that but asks you to do the same. It's been described as having ambitions to be a generational manifesto and I honestly feel that to my chore. Being in my twenties, full of fears and frustrations, believing that the best way to make it work is to simply keep going, being true to myself, being kind. Why tf to bother with all the trouble of being judgemental and unkind when you can simply ~not~

    "E andare un passo più avanti, essere sempre vero
    And to always go one step further, to stay true to yourself
    Spiegare cos'è il colore a chi vede bianco e nero
    to describe colours to those who see only black and white
    E andare un passo più avanti, essere sempre vero
    And to always go one step further, to stay true to yourself
    E prometti domani a tutti parlerai di me
    And promise that tomorrow you'll tell everyone about me
    E anche se ho solo vent'anni dovrò correre
    Even though I'm only twenty, I must run"
    - Vent'anni

    Anyway, just my thoughts on how Måneskin lyrics mirror the speach of my favourite queer pirate fighting against england and I for one think that is not only very punk but also very sexy of them.

    #Måneskin#black sails#long post #la paura del buio #torna a casa #vent'anni #sorry but I had to add the videos #like they are pieces of art in themselves #the lyrics alone just don't do it #seriously I am obsessed #their talent #and they are literally all younger than me #Youtube#maneskin#damiano david#punk

    love being a black sails and a cobra kai fan at the same time, it means that whenever someone writes anything about “silver” I have to guess from the context whether it’s a flawed, bisexual, traumatised, well-spoken pirate or a manipulative, gay, well-spoken karate-billionaire

    #sometimes it takes a couple of lines im not gonna lie #they're both good at making other people do what they want what can I say #black sails#cobra kai#john silver#terry silver
