Song #1 05:37
Este cuarto es mi reino Son dos por dos como una montaña Porque salir? Porque salir? Si cruzo la puerta que puede pasar? Quisiera volar Arráncame tu peso de mis pies Quisiera no estar Arráncame el recuerdo de tu ser Míra como estoy Entre los escombros de lo que fue y ya no será Míra como soy Entre el aire que dejas de respirar Y Sin amor, porque salir? Son dos por dos, mis dos por dos Porque salir? Porque salir? Si cruzo la puerta que puede pasar Míra como estoy Entre los escombros de lo que fue y ya no será Míra como soy Entre el aire que dejas de respirar Quisiera volar Porque salir? Porque salir? Quisiera no estar Si cruzo la puerta un paso a la vez

Song #2 02:34
Non mi guardare con quegli occhi mentre me ne vado via sono passati due giorni riempiti dai tuoi ricordi con quello sguardo mi controlli domini le mie emozioni hai capito le mie intenzioni voglio andarmene via Lasciami correre lasciami andare non piangere non farmi altro male Lasciami correre lasciami andare lo sai che mi piace se mi fai del male non farmi altro male non voglio vederti piangere Ti prego, non farmi più del male perché ogni volta che me ne fai io mi rinnamoro di te e per te, io, non voglio provare più nulla Non farmi altro male non voglio vederti piangere lasciami correre lasciami andare lo sai che mi piace se mi fai del male

Song #3 05:10
En la distancia, se entrelazan pensamientos Se entrelazan voces y deseos. Atraviesa mi alma, yo saltaré los muros caminas con mis pies, veo con tus ojos. Grita, escucha mi voz, Duerme, yo sueño, pienso, tú me oyes, Respiro y sientes el aroma. Los balcones se Convierten en ideas Las ideas se convierten En razones y las razones En nuestros latidos. Y un día, navegaremos Recorreremos caminos que andamos Las cercas, cortaremos. Por fin sentirás mis manos Sentiré tus abrazos. Sin fronteras, sin miedos. Sin fronteras, sin miedos.

Song #4 04:51
Cleave the body was lying sunset still in another room. Now that Divide's living is gone from his body it sinks, infinitesimally slowly deliquesces into the horizon of the examiners' table. We will move him whilst he is still mostly solid. We will take Loss's cum and bile and spit and mirth from his body and no one will question the strange cocktail of his being, he will be dried out before his matter changes form. There like a glacier lying in a stark medical room, they will take his melting impetus until they decide the reason three fifths of him is beneath, is that the water is a bullet hole in his upper sternum, they decide he is to be avoided because he is a biohazard, because they have decided to imprison who he was in as small a place as they can manage. If only they had realised these things before he passed away. If only they had known Injury's true weight before he was gone. Alles was jetzt brennt Häuser, Lungen, Autos, Straßen, Mensch(en) Ein Knie im Genick Fast 9 Minuten gleich dem Strick dem Strick E tale meccanismo eternamente in moto in questo sistema di ambiguità le autorità che abusano dell’innocenza. Dovrebbero tutti guardar nel vuoto come chi lo ha fatto nella propria solitudine senza speranza. Silenzi nascosti dentro mille pupille si infrangono, esplodono.

Song #5 06:54
Праздные дома и замерзшие руки, Тлеют излишки, но голодные души Сходят с ума, сходят с ума. Кто это рассчитал? Кто это просчитал? Смотри мне в глаза Ты мне не враг Скажи мне, ты хочешь жить в темноте? Как грустно, смешно и ужасно, Что причины завернуты в цветную бумагу Я тоже боюсь завтра Мне страшно проснуться в сладком удушье апатии, не чувствовать дна и не слышать криков о помощи Я тоже боюсь. Я тоже боюсь. Мы смотрели, как стена за стеной Выросли в наших дворах, И одна за другой рушились стены в сердцах И умах Покажи мне лицо хоть одно, которому не все равно, которому не все равно Maybe our voices are gone From screaming so loud for so long Or maybe you were just born deaf No matter how few or how many words we use Our reasons never seem to be enough for you How come our reasons are never enough? It’s okay to repair things that are broken But what if they were made to be broken in the first place? Shut it down

Song #6 03:39
Just covered with a sheet on a meadow of sin was building up a fence to see what's beyond I was chewing on grass what made me puke to read the future outta raging seas raging seas raging seas raging seas I was climbing a tree touching the sky melting the sun catching a cold and a bird to keep me in a cage not knowing the rage of fake plastic flowers surrounding me drowning in the sea of whiskey you rip my heart and you shape my life you tear me down to build me up I stand amazed and I'm blind-eyed I'm drooling blood and I'm tongue-tied and even in this comatose I walk the way the threat shows even in this comatose I walk the way the threat shows as I catch flesh behind fences I see through with big eyes but they're not mine as the wind gently strikes my cheek and as I lay down in sun to sleep traded my wings long time ago for a cheap buzz and a one way ticket to hell I prefered your smell and since you're gone I swim with a stone as a heart think I was smart to choose the path I'm following which doesn't exist to anyone but me fishes avoiding me cause I'm floating with time passing by whenever

about

In April 2020, in what seemed to be the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic but was just its beginning, Italian screamo band Øjne decided to start a project to fight the alienation caused by lockdown and self-isolation.

We uploaded some guitar and bass tracks online. We then asked whoever wanted to turn them into a real song to contribute by recording whatever instrument they played or screaming, singing, or speaking over them. Some of these songs were tracks we wrote just a few days before the project was launched, while others were the skeletons of songs we never finished writing years ago. We have created a Facebook group to manage the whole project. Several people from different countries started to join, each bringing their style and music taste to the songs. Over the spring, everyone in the group discussed how to structure the songs, what the topic of the lyrics should be, or what unusual instruments could be added. Slowly, everyone recorded their instrument or vocals, and by the end of the summer, the project was completed.

The final result is a series of screamo and post-hardcore tracks in Italian, Spanish, English, Russian and German. They are full of different influences but share the same need to fight our fears and alienation by creating something together, even if from a distance, in these trying times.

All the profits from digital and cassette sales will go to Mediterranea Saving Humans, an Italian platform bringing together different NGOs with the goal of saving lives in the Mediterranean Sea.
