Track Name: Amour métastasé
AMOUR MÉTASTASÉ

Déroutant
Je me laisse surprendre
Par tout ce que tu sembles vouloir m'apprendre
Car tu propages tout

Immédiatement
Je réponds à ta contagion
En te laissant respirer mon air, sans soupçon
Car tu provoques tout

Intensément
J'aime me débattre
Contre le bien que tu me fais, même si c'est sans effet
Car tu t'accapares tout

Fatalement
J'apprends à vivre
Avec cette rage de l'instant qui me délivre
Car tu consumes tout

Amour Métastasé
Mon corps t'explore
Sans jamais t'apprivoiser
Track Name: Build it
BUILD IT

I’ve been told
I’ve always deeply known
What I wanted, needed
To accomplish my quest

I’ve been told
That when you want something
The universe conspires
Helping you achieve it

I’ve been told
That playing it safe
Is often more threatening
to freedom, than risk taking

Don’t just live a life
Fight one
Dream one
Build one

I’ve been told
Those who don’t understand
Will fail to comprehend
Its teachings, its treasures

I’ve been told
A gift should not be refused
Cause life may be listening
And next time be less giving

I’ve been told
That true love never seems
To get in someone’s way
Of fulfilling its dreams

Don’t just live a life
Fight one
Dream one
Build one
Track Name: Control
CONTROL

Control.

To exercise authoritative influence over; Direct.
To adjust to a requirement; Regulate.
To hold in restraint; Dominate.
To reduce the spread of. Prevent.
to prevent the flourishing of; Care.
lessen the intensity of; Handle.

A spirit presumed to speak or act through a medium.
A relation of constraint of one entity by another.

Control.

It's hard to free the fool, from the chains he reveres.
Freedom only rings, when opinions clash. Clash.
Set me free.

The only freedom you truly have is in your mind.
Cause a man is free at the moment he wishes to be.
Let it go, let it go, let it go

No one is free until everyone is free.
Track Name: One of those
ONE OF THOSE

Had one of those nights
One of those nights with you
You were one of those guys
One of those that shine through

Had one of those nights
One of those nights alone
It was one of those downs
One of those that kills you

I wish I could come home to you
To someone, to someone like you
Don’t you see they’ve picked up on our sparks?
Can’t we just stop pretend, stop pretend

Had one of those days
One of those days with you
You were one of those obsessions
One of those that break through

Had one of those days
One of those days alone
I was one of those fools
One of those that fights you

I wish I could come home to you
To someone, to someone like you
Don’t you see they’ve picked up on our sparks?
Can’t we just stop pretend, stop pretend

I wish I could come home to you
To someone, to someone like you
Don’t you see they’ve picked up on our sparks?
Can’t we just stop pretend, stop pretend
Track Name: Et demain
ET DEMAIN

Chemin vers l’exil sur l’autoroute du ciel
L’atlantique mon géant, barrière frêle
Je suis chez moi partout et nulle part, surtout ailleurs
Et pourtant famille adoptive vous avez mon cœur
Et demain ?

J’ai mis des étoiles sur l’un de mes plafonds
J’ai crée mon propre univers, c’est si simple dans le fond
Slalomant entre rencontres, choix et déceptions
De mes plus grands voyages, celui de la vie, vous êtes mon exception

Et demain ? Acquis ?
Et demain ? Indécis.

J’avance pas à pas dans la mélancolie
Je meurs de toi et tant pis si ça fait mal, tu m’es indispensable
Je m’enfuis pardonne-moi, je t’en pris ne sois pas triste
Toi mon ange tu me dis que je suis ta plus belle cicatrice
Et demain ?

Plus jamais seule, où que j’aille
Orphelin, sera le dernier de mes damnes
Je ne deviendrai pas un fantôme aux couleurs aquarelles
Car je suis noir ou blanc et que tu es mon arc-en-ciel

Loin des yeux, loin du cœur, ce proverbe est menteur
Un amour viscéral qui m’empêche d’avoir peur
Le yin et le yang d’un monde sans attaches
Se venteront-ils d’avoir effleuré ce qu’on partage ?

Et demain ? Démolit ?
Et demain ? Interdit.

C’est lorsque les « aux revoirs » m’étranglent jusqu’aux larmes
Que j’en apprends encore sur moi-même, sur comme je t’aime

Et demain ?
Et demain ?
Et demain ?

Hypnotisée par cette prolifération
Sans contrefaçon vous êtes ma seule raison

Et demain ?
Et demain ?
Et demain ?

Rien.
