The lyrics of "Moving" deal with journeys trying to get some meaning, without minding the goal.
Only the departure and its probable reasoning, the act of "going" photographed in its essence of motion. The arrival is excluded, it doesn't exist, just because it represents the end, the result of the journey. And the journey has no result, because its aim is just the motion. The journey can never end because symbolizes the inner walk of the man and makes the sense of life.
"Moving" refers to the journey as rebellion, as declaration of independence.
Journey as statement of autonomy. As the way to knowledge of our soul, of our aspiration, of our relationship with the world.
To leave means to turn our back on something that is not part of us, to rebel against mind and body wait-and-see policy, that chokes the natural human bent for curiosity, discovery and dreaming.
The departure as breaking point.
The motion as incessant mean of experimenting, eternal source of emotions.
The motion as search of new meetings, but also as a way to look for loneliness and separation.
As escape and as meditation.
Visions, reflection and moods often opposite and contradictory, often incomprehensible.
Many questions and no answer fit for all: everyone has his own one.
The journey as escape but not as reatreat.
Escape as refusal of imposed models by who holds the power and adulerates reality through falsification of information, deceptive creation of induced needs and projection of an illusory world, dissolutely given up to satisfy fictitious necessity, prefabricated and planned just to generate new unsatisfaction, in a perverse vicious circle that leads to the loss of human values.
Motion begins in mind, and body becomes a mean of transport that accompanies the man on the road, allowing him to go out from his shell, bringing him into contact with new and always enlightening situations.
But journey is not necessarily physical. The mind is the one that must live moving and the one that has to keep on moving forever. Because if it stops, it dies.
