|apocalyptic rider, stanza di compensazione|
the apocalyptic rider´s real name is piero. mr piero lost his job. he was a public line bus driver in the city of palermo. from that day on he wasn´t able to go home to his wife, because no money, no food, no love anymore. thats why he climbed up to the roof of one palace of the 4 canti and he cried in a megaphone for all the people in the city, that he wanted jump down. his wife and a lot of other sicilian women were running by quickly. they cried: stop piero, don´t jump! piero! piero! no! the firefighters up on the electric ladder ready to catched him, while mr piero cried to the firefighters: stop! don´t come too close to me! if you come, i´ve to jump into death! they answered: ok piero, we don´t come too close, but piero listen, don´t jump! the time was passing and suddenly the women started to cry: jump piero jump! but the firefighters cried against: no piero don´t jump! the melody how the women were crying, i put inside of my painting, the faces of rhythm from left to right, half-half-quater with echo-half-big-half-big-half-quater with echo-half-half and loop it. the angels up in the sky are two half-half stop and go chorus. mr piero was falling backwards into blackout. the only thing that the people saw, were his shoes on the roof. the firefighters put him on the roof and brought him down in the arms of his wife. his wife took him at home and i swear that the first thing what they did, was making love.
