“Out of the loop” is desire for freedom, “City” sees it turned into pain, “Forty” is temptation, “Magdalene” is that sweetness which dies in “Keep me by the stars”, failure of the human feeling. “Uneasy” is trust, “Toccata” does not speak with words, “Fear” is passion and terror, “Phariseum” is rage and hypocrisy.
“Human Divine” is the keystone of the disc, it supports and concludes it. It’ s the clear discovery of the need for God, passing through the human loneliness. The other songs live in this suite, and are turned into a medley composed of 72 measures, the number of the names of God in the cabbalistic tradition, which -overcomes- nature, in order to show that only in what is sublime, in Him, we can find a meaning for the human experience.
