Here's a little art song, I guess. It's just me and some piano accompaniment. It's repeated twice with a tiny bit of vocal variation the second time around.

Lyrics:

Piedistallo di nostro fallimento;
Come posso raggiungere prosperit√°?
Piedistallo di vero amore,
Rotto e grigio con sincerit√°.
I pilastri e le colonne di Roma,
Possono crollare nel tempo.
Se non aggiustiamo noi stessi,
Saremo lo stesso, saremo lo stesso.

Translation:

Pedestal of our failure;
How can I reach prosperity?
Pedestal of true love,
Broken and grey with sincerity.
The pillars and columns of Rome,
They may crumble in time.
If we do not fix ourselves,
We will be the same, we will be the same.

I've never heard a good art song since Akiko Shikata's "Sorriso" -- beautiful chords, expressive piano, and equally expressive voice. The only thing I would recommend apart from everything you've done, is to drag the ends of "prosperita," "sincerita" a little bit -- not too much, just a little bit more than already is the case in the song now -- just to give it that bit more gravitas.

I've not been the best at dissonance but can recognise when it's well done -- and this is one of the best cases of it that I've ever heard.

Thoroughly enjoyed this one. Giving this a well-deserved 5.
