Track Name: The Fall
We were united for me
It was a kind of lie
One single star that might be
It blew up from the inside

It should not have turned like that
You should not have been so quiet
Go as the wind blows
Go as your pride glows

We found passion and fall
We are passion and fall

We act like strangers for me
As time goes by

It should not have turned like that
You should not have been so quiet
Go as the wind blows
Go as your pride glows

We found passion and fall
We are passion and fall
Track Name: Nonsense
Push, move forward,
Try to erase traps around you
Stirred by a senseless charm
That makes you feel a need to breathe
Suffer, it’s the way it begins,
But is it the way it will end
Cry, howl and cry as you don’t know yet
Why you’ve been here

The creature’s reached a more perfect form
When it thinks but what we think is unbearable

Nonsense of life
Nonsense of the livings
Who create aims in life
With unforgiving endings
We all want to go higher,
Blindfolded will be better
We all want to see further,
Blindfolded will be better

Speak, behave and think
Be sure before you open your mouth
Work, don’t stop before long,
Time is money don’t forget it
Suffer, again and again,
This is the only way to reach happiness
Sleep, sleep awake,
Do not think of what’s coming next
Track Name: A Step Forward
A place where all the people would have a chance to be another kind of man

Subservience, obedience, our disease
Rebellion, conviction are the key
Tonight, we shall break the walls that compress us
Alienate us, that confine us, that delude us

We waited, we waited we waited too long
Now we have to, we have to, to act for our fate
We waited, we waited we waited too long
Now it’s time to, it’s time to, save our lives our rights the light

A place where everyone would choose to share I still hope it could be real

Wake up tonight, stand upright, Turn on the light, for which you fight

Subservience, obedience, our disease
Rebellion, conviction are the key
Tonight, we shall break the walls that compress us
Alienate us, that confine us, that delude us

We waited, we waited we waited too long
Now we have to, we have to, to act for our fate
We waited, we waited we waited too long
Now it’s time to, it’s time to, save our lives our rights the light
Track Name: 85
Shut the door, try to breath,
Keep control, walk straight
Heart beats, don't panic,
Try not to think, walk straight
They are 85, you are 85
We are exhausted, we are tired

When people's gaze assails him
It makes him feel like to run and look ahead
Nevermind the time it takes
He only wants to run and look ahead
They are 85, you are 85
We are exhausted, we are tired

Clammy hands, feel annoyed,
Too much noise, hold on
So many men, too much voices,
Too much trouble, hold on

When people's gaze assails him
It makes him feel like to run and look ahead
Nevermind the time it takes
He only wants to run and look ahead
Track Name: Enfance
Rain is falling down as our bodies have grown

Maybe we should just apologize
But we tried so hard not to be a child
We'd rather like to fit in your eyes
But actually I try not to stay a child

Minds are still the same forgotten in the game
Deny yourself joy for your rise little boy

I thought we'd never grow up but world has us in it's ropes

Maybe we should just apologize
But we tried so hard not to be a child
We'd rather like to fit in your eyes
But actually I try not to stay a child

I've come to see that, we're just part of ourselves,
Part of ourselves now, as long as we forget not
To surrender, it won't be over no it won't

I thought we'd never grow up but world has us in it's ropes
Track Name: Understanding
That’s not a question of being afraid of something or someone
How do you say you’re not considering you’re part of a whole

On the way as if by magic, on the way of understanding
There’s no way no for some logic, on the way of understanding

We’re gonna take all this time for leaving
We wanna see what’s around among the living
Put your coat on your shoulders ‘cause it’s freezing
But there we shall renew the old air we’re breathing

A little bitter drop slipped into the brew we drank for long
When we’re aware of all, facing backwards we won’t do it wrong

On the way as if by magic, on the way of understanding
There’s no way no for some logic, in the way of understanding

Understanding the meaning of all that
Understanding when some play a part
We’re gonna take all this time for leaving
We wanna see what’s around among the living
Track Name: Les Appelés
Depuis l'aube des temps
Déchirures et tremblements

A quoi bon se faire souffrir
Pour un idéal qui sans cesse
Nous consume et nous déchire
A quoi bon anéantir
L'absolu n'est sage
Que pour ceux qui osent voir ce qu'il divise

A chacun son apogée
Pour l'écrasante majesté

A quoi bon se faire souffrir
Pour un idéal qui sans cesse
Nous consume et nous déchire
A quoi bon anéantir
L'absolu n'est sage
Que pour ceux qui osent voir ce qu'il divise

S'achèvera-t-elle jamais
La lutte des appelés
Track Name: Mirage
Instrumental
Track Name: Diseased
The light is gleaming beyond a broken window
People walk together but fear their fellow
The poor are gathered outside the old station’s doors
The stranger is passing by but sees nothing at all

We are living in a real diseased town
Walls are falling down

The young drink and laugh but they still close their eyes
A smell of disquiet fills the hearts and minds
The madman’s yelling at someone only he sees
A gentle wind blows and whispers a will

We are living in a real diseased town
Walls are falling down
Track Name: Rosalia
Ci-gît beauté ensommeillée,
Cet éternel enfant muet
Des Capucins dernier joyaux,
L'ultime passerelle vers le très haut.

Son lit de verre tel un miroir,
Irradie ce monde illusoire
De la lumière des angelots,
Où nous te rejoindrons bientôt...
Track Name: Old Age
Hey you - Is it me, are you sleeping
Your eyes - What eyes, I see, are empty
Come back to old memories when time made us laugh
You turn around and you turn again thinking of what’s waiting out there

Hear me, shake me, make me understand why fate is so natural
Hold me, touch me, make me understand why fate is so natural

Say goodbye old age, I feel I’m already gone, I don’t care anymore

Talking for nothing, watching for nothing
Laughing for nothing, faking for nothing
I turn around and a turn again wondering what I could do for you
But you keep shouting and you cry again “leave me I’m done it is true”

Hear me, shake me, make me understand why fate is so natural
Hold me, touch me, make me understand why fate is so natural
Hear me, shake me, make me understand why fate is so natural

Say goodbye old age, I feel I’m already gone, I don’t care anymore

I’m so afraid...
Track Name: Our Medicine
Our medicine has many faces
Many colors, several shapes

Her medicine makes her fly
She feels she knows all that’s around
Her medicine makes her cry
She feels the weight of its desire

His medicine keeps him alive
A price to pay for him to survive

Her medicine makes her fly
She feels she knows all that’s around
Her medicine makes her cry
She feels the weight of its desire

Many reasons, many lies
Make our medicine so divine

A day, an impression of sublime
But nature’s strength tears us apart

She feels the chains gripping her mind
Being slave of her own kind
Track Name: Wild
I am the dew on a wild grass
I am the picture of a distant lake
I am the wind that blows strongly on a face
I am a wanderer in the Amazonian forest

Into a deep torpor
Stuck in a state you are so far
But present everywhere
Stroking the slightest grain of sand
To live in a dream world
A strange meaning of life

I am the rocks on which you carve
I am a whisper in the quiet cave
I am a stick in an old man’s hand playing drums
I am the sound that you hear when it’s silent

Into a deep torpor
Stuck in a state you are so far
But present everywhere
You’re the dust flying here and there
To live in a dream world
A strange meaning of life
Track Name: Bittersweet
You seem fawning from the outside in a very wry way
So loving, so tender, but so bitter anyway
So understanding though critical, radical
Embodied serenity with hysterical abilities

Someday, somehow, you had intuition,
Someday, somehow
You stayed, you spied, to dump your frustration
You stayed, you tried

Far-sighted most of the time but childish in many ways
So confident at first sight as you put yourself down
You seem so happy though feeling sad, going mad
Embodied lightness with physical boundaries

The color of your gleaming eye
Flavor of an inner lie

Someday, somehow, you had intuition,
Someday, somehow
You stayed, you spied, to dump your frustration
You stayed, you tried
