about

Dystopian Society Firenze, Italy

Dystopian Society is a dark post-punk project born in Florence at the end of 2010.

Since then they played several gigs and released a s/t EP (2011), “Cages” LP (2012) and "Violations" EP (2013).

The second album, “Overturned Reality” (2015), is a continuation of the concept: a gloomy sonic landscape with bursts of rage describing the dystopia we are living in, with a strong vein of mysticism.

Track Name: The Buzzer
Endless broadcast, signal unknown
Military codes, switching of tones

Tracking down the buzzer is no easy task
No indications, tricky to unmask

Where is the Buzzer nobody knows
Where is the station nobody knows

Distorted voices of numbers and names
Then the buzzing noise again

Conspiration of worldwide spies
Nuclear attack, defense device

Where is the Buzzer nobody knows
Where is the station nobody knows
The more we try we can’t find the source
Where is the buzzer nobody knows

40 years old lasting transmission
A new cold war, some secret mission

Hidden in the bunker, lost in the snow
Broadcast goes on and mystery grows

Where is the Buzzer nobody knows
Where is the station nobody knows
The more we try we can’t find the source
Where is the Buzzer nobody knows

Where’s the Buzzer?
Where’s the Buzzer?
Track Name: Altars
I see the end of this world is coming today
You’ll raise our beating hearts to the shimmering sky
The sun will shine on our corpses in decay

Our blood will curse all your altars
Altars
Altars

In this unholy forest we walk free
Lost creatures from an endless-captive past
We will be back to slay your progeny

Our blood will curse all your altars
Altars
Altars
Track Name: Violations
Listen to the silent cry
Listen to the world that dies
Don't choose to wait for next
Violation
Violation

Bodies deformation
Nature violation
There's no place to hide
Radiations fill the sky

Fixed extermination
Violations
Violations
No mercy, no salvation
Violations
Violations
Ceaseless intoxication
Violations
Violations
Victims of programmed violations

Listen to the silent cry
Listen to the world that dies
Don't choose to wait for next
Violation
Violation

Next step will be privation
Last one will be annihilation
Cause we are getting used to
Violations
Violations
Track Name: Overturned Reality
Welcome all to the brand new future
Where deception becomes so real
Where the roles are the same ones forever
Where you all lose the game

Everything is upside down
Everything is upside down

Welcome folks to the brand new future
Where they make you believe what they say
Where you pay for a false freedom
Where you are glad to obey

Everything is upside down
Everything is upside down
Everything is upside down
Everything is upside down
Track Name: Discarded
Inside the spoiled rooms of black memories
Another life to build from scratch
While shadows on the wall are dancing
Red bleeding eyes calling for us again

Outside the world is falling into ruins
Grey skies vanish into a dead sea

There is nothing left
Feeding on emptiness
Discarded and wasted
There is nothing left
Wounded hearts, dirty hands
Discarded and wasted
Again

Dancing on fire, sleeping on ice
Sweet poison running through our veins
For every chance we pay a mortal price
For every cure, a bigger pain

There is nothing left
Feeding on emptiness
Discarded and wasted
There is nothing left
Wounded hearts, dirty hands
Discarded and wasted
Again
Track Name: The City's Breath
In the dead of night we’re walking on
Bleak alleys, dark corners

Figures in background perform their rites
Eternal decline

Haunted buildings with painted walls
Concealing the sky

Shadows at your side
There’s no escape
Feeling in the air
The city’s breath

Castaways arise
Set fears aside
All around you hear
The city’s breath

In the dead of night we’re wandering
We are sleepless and savage

Rotten children of misery
Reclaiming redemption

Shadows at your side
There’s no escape
Feeling in the air
The city’s breath

Castaways arise
Set fears aside
All around you hear
The city’s breath
Track Name: Resist
Another day in a hell like this
Psychotic monkeys in search of bliss
Ambition slaves mass production
Empty feelings in a chain reaction

Mind corruption in disguise
Bound to believe their fucking lies
Pseudo-heroes falling in disgrace
Where consciousness is out of place

You know the truth is inside your resistance
You know the truth hides inside your resistance
You know it does
Resist! Resist!

The only means to survive
Striving between thousand knives

A clearance sale of ideals
Where coherence is not a big deal
Swamped by their greediness
Swallowed by their confidence

Another swindle, another sham
While no one here is giving a damn
A dull state of mind won’t set you free
Open your eyes and you will see

You know the truth is inside your resistance
You know the truth hides inside your resistance
You know it does
Resist! Resist!
Track Name: No Deliverance
Living in a void
A journey to the deep
Where dreams are shattered
Reality is mean
Corrosive feeling
A deadly embrace
Feeding my limbs
With flawless hate

What is the sickness
That binds me here?
Praying for the next day
To be released

Living in a void
Nowhere to hide
Empty eyes staring
At the poisonous sky
Forgotten tales
Of love and peace
Back against the wall
You're down on your knees

What is the sickness
That binds me here?
There is no answer
There's no deliverance for me
