Track Name: Hourglass
Waiting for our time to come
Hiding behind shams
Pretending nothing’s wrong when nothing’s right
Watching the sand flowing
Wondering how long we’ll be waiting

I’ll break the hourglass and start to tell you
I’ll break the chains that I’ve made mine
That nothing’s gonna make me corrupt you
But I’m losing control sometimes

There are so many things I kept inside
Frustration and sadness turned to hate
I can’t help blaming you for your mistakes when I feel I am kept aside
Time made this feeling intensify
The hopes I had came down and down
I’m watching the sand flowing and I keep on going round and round

Time made this feeling intensify
The hopes I had came down and down
I’m watching the sand flowing and I keep on going round and round
I’ll break the hourglass and start to tell you
I’ll break the chains that I’ve made mine
That nothing’s gonna make me corrupt you
But I’ m losing control sometimes
Track Name: A Contre Jour
Un masque blanc une étoffe noire
Pour le théâtre des vivants
Ils pensent pouvoir ouvrir les yeux
Mais il n’y a plus rien à voir
Lorsqu’ils bougent ils synchronisent leurs mouvements
Ils seront détruits par les soldats du temps

Leurs espoirs à contre jour
Nos espoirs à contre jour

Si tu n’es pas comme eux tu ne pourras pas vivre
Certains pensent même qu’on ne peut pas fuir
Tu dois choisir tu ne remonteras pas le temps
Tu feras partie du théâtre des vivants

Leurs espoirs à contre jour
Nos espoirs à contre jour
Track Name: The Chosen One
He’s the chosen one the only one
How can I call you
He never touched the ground
How can I call you
He made men of clay
How can I call you
They’re so weak inside...
A terrible curse for this he had to accept
For a gift that made us shine
The sky may burn or fall on us, on us
Nothing could repair such a curse
Play and try such madness
There’s nothing worse than emptiness
A terrible curse for this he had to accept
For a gift that made us shine
He’s the chosen one the only one
Play and try such madness
He never touched the ground
There’s nothing worse than emptiness
He made men of clay
Play and try such madness
They’re so weak inside...
Track Name: Grey House
Looking back a few years ago
I haven’t really changed my mind
The absence made me feel bitter
And I’m still left behind
You let me out in some way
With little place for affection
Even if it’s not the case you’d say
That’ s how I analysed

And all the things I’ve never been able to say
Will keep on rotting inside unless I throw them away

Looking at the terrible eyes
That were looking for help in me
Fear and lack of understanding
Are still overwhelming me
Shame and mercy
Shame and mercy
My head’s burning
I want no compassion at all
Please stay away
Stay away from me
Track Name: Vladilen
Si seulement tu avais su garder en silence
Tous tes faibles penchants, tes excès tes démences
Mais tu cherches bien plus, mets le cœur à l’ouvrage
Pour me perdre à raison, par tes mauvais présages

Et pour toi ce tourbillon qui t’appelle
Je te vois bouger
Entrevois cet orage qui sommeille
Je te sens pleurer

Tes paroles blessantes dispersées sans remords
Mensonge et Rancœur sont devenus tes devises

Et pour toi ce tourbillon qui t’appelle
Je te vois bouger
Entrevois cet orage qui sommeille
Je te sens pleurer
Un deux trois, tourne, tourne et retourne toi
Je te vois changer
Entrevois cet orage qui sommeille
Je te sens pleurer
Track Name: Lies
When I saw your face I guessed something was wrong
You couldn’t hide the embarrassment in your grin
You got yourself into trouble brother
Try to find the answer, I guessed something was on
Was it wrong?

Lies
It’s just lies
When you talk I can’t see the sparkles anymore
The ancient brightness faded away in your hands

What have you done? Talk now
I’m waiting
Don’t be a coward please, that’s so repulsive
Little creature full of remorse come and face the facts
Poor wreck it’s time to wake up and bear your choice
Track Name: Tension
Can’t sleep at night
My blood let me down
I fall apart
I try to do the best I can
But this is not enough again

Tension, Under pressure

Can’t sleep at night
My blood let me down
I fall apart
When I think I suffocate
I try to find another way
Hope we’ll find a way to live
Track Name: This Feeling
Looking for pleasures and delight
That was like an obsession
We were kind but blind
Smiling at your sarcastic remarks

There are bad news today
In the place where we used to stay
We’ve lost our way
Nothing changes we used to say, we used to say
But from the truth we turned away
All we need is to fly away
All we want now is to fly away

When even the friends disappoint us
And when the lights turn to grey
It’s like a veil upon our faces
Let’s grab it and see trough our eyes
Track Name: Decay
Look at his ugly face
When he smiles
When his smallest wrinkles
Show his vice

He’s the kind of plague you’d better stay clear from
An anthology of crimes, the embodiement of sin
And he says he’s proud, and he says he’s proud ,
And he says he’s always proud
To play this role in his life To play this role in his life and to be
Always proud

Consider the damage done
When he acts
Please cover up his eyes
When he dies
His attractive disguise is nothing but an illusion

Decay, Fragments, Rubbles
Faces, Rotten faces
Track Name: Recklessness
You told us your story but is it right?
The things that come from your mouth seem so great even unreal
You miss the past the time when you were at the top
But your excess of pride will lead you to nothing real.

Recklessness of your mind
Waiting for new sensations
Ready to die
for the only glimpse of power.

Your eyes are shining when you talk about that
Moment of so called fame that made you as you are
You’d like to be an undying icon
For the people around who don’t see your colours anymore.
Track Name: The Travelling
The picture of a stranger lies on the floor
As the moonlight gently glows

She came closer step by step
And tried to take the strange object
The reflection of the star in her gaze
Full of glittering craving

A surprising appearance in the sky
Made her briskly turn aside
As she watched the shiny star
She saw the figure of a man
Travelling over the moon

Suddenly the moon disappeared
And everything was dark
She seemed to have run for her life
Afraid of her strange inhabitant
Then she woke up slowly
Taken from the enchantment
The wanderer put on her
