Thematic Elements

Collini's lyrics are filled with references to people and places from the past, mostly from the Italian years of lead. Among the political figures mentioned on the album are Enver Hoxha, Georgi Dimitrov, Rosa Luxemburg, Malcom X, Antonio Gramsci, Alexander Dubček, Maximilien Robespierre, Enrico Berlinguer, Marco Pannella, Ronald Reagan, Karl Marx, Ho Chi Minh, Che Guevara, Dolores Ibárruri, Josip Broz Tito, Kim Il Sung and Vladimir Lenin. A range of confectionery products, including Cinnamon-flavoured bubblegum and Tatranky wafers, is also mentioned, carrying several political metaphors: the commercial disappearance of these products is compared to the decadence of communism. Collini cites several musicians, including Mark Lanegan and his band Screaming Trees, the punk band Dead Kennedys, the hard rock band Van Halen and several new wave and synthpop acts such as Depeche Mode, Modern Talking and Nik Kershaw. Actual life happenings are also translated into lyrics in several songs.
