Track Name: One by One
Would you get something new for me but hurry
I may be getting closer and make you tired
Open up your gift and walk away
Say you aren't the cause of this fire

How many times you'd give yourself ?
Trying to take it home with you
One by one you would rescue
But I still get to keep you

It's what you get now
You won't know what's missing
Follow the rails to get your chance
While your pride will be waiting

Everybody gets what they need for tomorrow
Some do more than what's asked
Everybody gets what they need for tomorrow

You saw me as I grew older
But you won't notice
When I'll melt everything down to
Something you won't expect
I'll put you under
Don't you dare to complain
You don't have another
Way for you to sustain

How many times you'd give yourself ?
Trying to take it home with you
One by one you would rescue
But I still get to keep you
Track Name: Open Up
Open up, open up and see
They won't stay for long
I might even think that
They don't belong

Show me
The way you've been looking for
Waste me
Cause I don't make sense to you anymore

You do own everything
But still you're so frightened
Shoot a stranger
That's what makes you delighted

Yeah I know that I'm the only one
But that's because I try the best I can

Drop that
It hasn't gotten this far
I'm here to sort this out
But you just started a war

Show me
The way you've been looking for
Waste me
Cause I don't make sense to you anymore
Track Name: For Us
They hide to stay out of range
And everything stays out of view
Sober, awake and all senses fine
But they won't care about what's new

No, no, it's not about it's age
They can't wait to look so separate
And all I could hear is their denial
All I could hear is their denial

No, no, it's not about it's age
They can't wait to look so separate
And all I could hear is their denial
All I could hear is their denial

You just have to give it a chance
It might not seem like it
But after all, you're doing this
For us, for us
Track Name: Pink Card
Completely tested and just bought
I'd stay in line while they'd walk
I look pretty, pretty old for the obstacle
Pink cards, shiny mats, here comes another one

Oh another one
Here comes another one
Oh another one

I'd show you that I can hold myself
Port to city, car to car, get used to be abused
I'd steal a crown for this green beauty
It's no dinner but here comes another one

Oh another one
Here comes another one
Oh another one

And I already know that I'll stop only when I'll drop to the floor
That's when I realize that everything goes so slow
With every drop, that gets me close to what I need
And I already know, already know

I'll just fall, I'll collapse but you can go
We'll get out, we'll move out, we'll have a fight or two
Be careful of what is in the glass
You might think it's all you need, but it's all you didn't ask

And I already know that I'll stop only when I'll drop to the floor
That's when I realize that everything goes so slow
With every drop, that gets me close to what I need
And I already know, already know

Here comes another one
Oh another one
Here comes another one
Oh another one
Here comes another one
Oh another one
Here comes another one
Oh another one
Track Name: Less is More
Leave, leave this town tomorrow
On something better than what we have
For once, take a look around
Might seem strange to you but we always ask to borrow

The less you have the more you're in control
The less you have the more you'll live for
Need to be seen, need to be found
Somehow it's you that we'd surround
If you came in another time
You wouldn't be here in your prime
The less you have the more you're in control
The less you have the more you'll live for

Rule, rule on your land
Forget about your escape
You'll need a long, long holiday
For what we have planned

The less you have the more you're in control
The less you have the more you'll live for
Need to be seen, need to be found
Somehow it's you that we'd surround
If you came in another time
You wouldn't be here in your prime
The less you have the more you're in control
The less you have the more you'll live for

No, no, no, no don't refuse
Time to take off that little crown
Could you do it by yourself ?
Or we'll help you get it down

No, no, no, no don't refuse
No, no, no, no don't refuse
No, no, no, no don't refuse
Or we'll help you get it down

The less you have the more you're in control
The less you have the more you'll live for
Need to be seen, need to be found
Somehow it's you that we'd surround
If you came in another time
You wouldn't be here in your prime
The less you have the more you're in control
The less you have the more you'll fight for
Track Name: Atoms
Pull me out of my contrast and make me the same as them
In a home they can't control, their thoughts go to you

Who's the most faithful person in the world to tell me what went wrong ?
Who's the most faithful person in the world to tell me ?

Habits corrupt new ideas so don't feel too stuffed
Face to face and useless they kept me bluffed

Who's the most faithful person in the world to tell me what went wrong ?
Who's the most faithful person in the world to tell me ?

I need somewhere to go
A place that I can show
I need somewhere to go
A sea in which I'll float

I need somewhere to go
A place that I can show
I need somewhere to go
A sea in which I'll float

Who's the most faithful person in the world to tell me what went wrong ?
Who's the most faithful person in the world to tell me ?
Track Name: Old Days
Have you got time to hear all about my long words ?
Even though there's no rewards
It only took me two looks to feel like I'm being ignored
But I'll make sure that I'll be on board

Let my old days be gone
My old days be gone

Never caught a slight glimpse into what you could've had
Never guessed that things were this bad

Let my old days be gone
My old days be gone
Let my old days be gone
My old days be gone

Night is falling and I hope your dreamcatcher's gonna be enough
And you'll get what you asked for
By now all I can see is our footprints in the snow
But you looked back before

Let my old days be gone
My old days be gone
Let my old days be gone
My old days be gone
Let my old days be gone
My old days be gone
Let my old days be gone
My old days be gone
Track Name: Warning
Everything is moving faster
I'm losing patience waiting for the disaster
I got a taste now in my mouth
It's your smoke and I'll keep it somehow

And it's your turn now
This fire won't hurt you
Well, I can't promise
At least I won't let you down

Breathe in and feel my lungs
Before I could ask for more
Pass out on the floor
After I got your warning

And it's your turn now
This fire won't hurt you
Well, I can't promise
At least I won't let you down

And it's your turn now
This fire won't hurt you
Well, I can't promise
At least I won't let you down
Track Name: Living Town
I found myself getting laid down and tied up to the tracks
Just as when the morning's trying to catch up
I'll listen to the living town and what's above
To all the parts that we're trying to get rid of
And I'll move, but you'd stay, and mention all the facts
Right up to my face, oh yes I'm still awake

Will all of this take such a long time to take off ?
And I know I'm landing on what could be all new
My head feels light and it's all because of you
It may be harsh but no mistakes can get through

Try to be on time but still I somehow can't get up
Cause I'd rather stay home and waste this holiday
But I can't, you see, this isn't what I planned
For all of this year, or rather all my life
Track Name: Spanish Kid
You need to show him the final setup
After that let him know how not to screw up
Finger crossed he says he gets it on his own

He repeats it again and again
"I'm in the kind of trouble that requires you to please me,
to kindly appease me and just tightly squeeze me"

Spanish kid get out of the road
Before another one of your joys gives up
They'll make you take the wrong turn

Everyone heard his shouting and said
Let him wait for a while to see if he gives up
He'll realize that there's no one waiting there

This might be his only solution
His wild ride and candies and plenty more
He'll tell you that this is all part of his plan

Spanish kid get out of the road
Before another one of your joys gives up
They'll make you take the wrong turn
Spanish kid get out of the road



("La peur de l'art" by Amina Smaoui)

Il y a de ces actes sombres,
Accomplissant de ces grandes choses
Que l'on n'ose prononcer sans fondre
Dans la peur d'un jour, rencontrer ces virtuoses.

Car ce sont eux, oui, eux, les artistes
De ce monde mélodieusement corrompu
Par les races aryennes, posant leurs étiquettes
Sur les esprits de ceux rêvant au bienvenu.

Ces artistes qui dansent, chantent et tuent nos vies
Au grès de leurs humeurs de stars à un sou
Déversant leurs couleurs sur les notes de la vie,
Ils créent et peignent, le portrait d'un monde absolu.

En quoi ces herbes, ces feuilles, ces amants,
Ce sol, ces oiseaux, ces eaux pures,
Ces coqs, ces insectes ou ces flamboyants flamants,
Correspondraient à leurs dessins impurs ?

Ils blasphèment, mentent et jouissent de l'innocence.
Exploitent les pauvres cervelles d'êtres dégarnis,
Qui ont préféré s’émerveiller face à l’insouciance,
Que d'espérer prétendre connaître tout de l'esprit.



Spanish kid get out of the road
Before another one of your joys gives up
They'll make you take the wrong turn

Spanish kid get out of the road
Before another one of your joys gives up
They'll make you take the wrong turn
