I went on my rooftop to call on my bird طلعت فوق السطوح انده علي طيري I found my bird drinking from someone else’s pot لقيت طيري بيشرب من انا غيري I screamed my heart out and said: come, my bird صرخت من عزم ما بي ، و قلت يا طيري It replied: your time has gone, find another. قاللي زمانك مضي ، دور علي غيري The bird here culturally resembles anyone she was faithful to and gave lots of care to. I had a friend for years, but time is a cheat كان ليا صاحب عاشرته و الزمن خوان He turned out to be unreliable, just like time اتاريه قليل التني زي الزمن خوان

Now it’s just a vintage alien touch And it doesn’t annoy me that much If the relic of so many adventures Is only good for costume parties Those greenish pointed ears Oh, for so many light years Not a faun nor an elf on a rock It could only be me as Dr. Spock Now that I’m old and with my feet on the ground I often wonder as I have a beer Who knows what this world would sound like Through Vulcanian ears? The Enterprise flying in outer space The stillness of void I want to embrace A Vulcanian heart with no emotion Doesn’t miss a beat for an explosion Shouldn’t be worried by this buzzing pain That I tried and I tried to stop in vain But fearing I could lose this battle I explored the space inside the bottle [refrain] I wouldn’t mind waiting seven years To have a go at my next pon farr Nor to eat as a veggy every day And keep them tasty drinks away Humans may get it, as Captain Kirk And other spacemen of that ilk But I knew that alien physiology Does not contemplate Tinnitus for me [refrain]

about

This is the first single ever from Sparkle in Grey, and features two other great artists: the Egyptian singer Reem Soliman on one side, and the legendary experimental Italian band Le Forbici di Manitù on the other one.

Both provide vocals for two songs that are likely to be some of the most accessible tracks ever done by "the paladins of non-genre", as Sparkle in Grey have been defined in the past.

Mevlanian Ears is a welcoming gesture. To the unknown, to strangers, to different languages, to aimless wanderers persecuted by something, by themselves, by their own troubles, by conflicts.
A welcome to anyone, being her or him orange, black, white, yellow, Italian, Arabic, American, Chinese, Mexican, Austrian, Martian or Vulcanian.

This single anticipates the release of Sparkle in Grey new full-length CD, “Milano”, that will be out on ADN/Stella Nera/Moving Records/Grey Sparkle.
