My Blackened Name (Il mio nome infangato)

Andrew Mecoli and Anita Lorenzotti helped me with the translation of these lyrics into Italian. Sadly, I left Italy before we could get an Italian vocalist to record the track.


And I'm not sure how Allison was able to make her voice sound so much like a theremin.


Listen here:


Please don’t speak my blackened name Please don’t think that things could stay the same Well I don’t want to cause any pain So please don’t speak my blackened name

Please don’t cross that river tonight You stay on your side and I will stay on mine Well I don’t want to cause any shame So please don’t speak my blackened name

My blackened name is known around All the worst parts of town My blackened name is on the tip of your tongue And I don’t want us to do what can’t be undone

The smallest step from here and there It gets much shorter when I see them things you wear And I don’t want to take any blame So please don’t speak my blackened name Please don’t speak my blackened name

(Italian version)

Ti prego non dire Il mio nome infangato Per favore non credere Che le cose rimarranno uguali

Io non vorrei Causare dolore Ti prego non dire Il mio nome infangato

Ti prego non attraversare Quel fiume stanotte Resta sulla tua sponda e restero' sulla mia

Io non vorrei Causare dolore Ti prego non dire Il mio nome infangato

Il mio nome infangato è conosciuto nei peggiori posti della città

Il mio nome infangato è sulla punta della tua lingua e non voglio che facciamo ciò che non poi rimarra'

Il più piccolo passo da qui a lì diventa molto più piccolo quando vedo le cose che porti

E non voglio Prendermi la colpa Ti prego non dire Il mio nome infangato

Ti prego non dire Il mio nome infangato
