Track Name: ABÎME
A travers une fissure
Aperçu des blessures
Qui ne datent pas d’hier
On ne peut s’en défaire

Quand les rêves s’effondrent encore une fois
Quand la douleur s’imprègne et chasse ta voix
La haine empoigne et déchire
Le jour se lève, tout empire
Je n’ai plus rien à faire
Oh non je n’ai plus rien à perdre

Et subir la distance
Maintenir le silence
Souvenir de mes songes
Doux sourire qui me ronge

Quand les rêves s’effondrent encore une fois
Quand la douleur s’imprègne et chasse ta voix
La haine empoigne et déchire
Le jour se lève, tout empire
Je n’ai plus rien à faire
Oh non je n’ai plus rien à perdre
Track Name: MASCARADE
Ces désirs d’intégrité
T’éloignent aveuglément
De ta véritable personne
Têtu et ignorant

Il n’y a plus rien à faire
Malgré tous ces efforts
Ma frustration se renforce
Je n’ose plus rien dire

Pourquoi cette mascarade
Montre-nous ton vrai visage
Débarrasse-toi de ces obstacles
Qui t’emprisonnent de jour en jour

Le doute s’installe en moi
Cet égo que je hais tant
Cette prétention décevante
Finira par tout détruire

Il n’y a plus rien à faire
Malgré tous ces efforts
Ma frustration se renforce
Je n’ose plus rien dire

Pourquoi cette mascarade
Montre-nous ton vrai visage
Débarrasse-toi de ces obstacles
Qui t’emprisonnent de jour en jour
Track Name: NOCTURNE
Le jour se lève,
le décor s'effondre
La peur s’éveille
Et les masques tombent

Nocturne fortune rappelle toi
L'aube ne te reconnaît pas

Asphyxie, inertie, immobilisme
La torpeur, son emprise, te paralyse

La nuit tu ensorcelles
Le jour on ne te voit pas
Nuit candeur immortelle
Jour glisse entre tes doigts

Le jour se lève
Le décor s'effondre

Nocturne fortune rappelle toi
L'aube ne te reconnaît pas

Ces pantins, ces furies nous méprisent
Laisse les là sans supplice aux abysses

La nuit tu ensorcelles
Le jour on ne te voit pas
Nuit candeur immortelle
Jour glisse entre tes doigts
Track Name: VISION D'AVENIR
D’un silence dans le bruit tous tes rêves évanouis
Oui ça tue tes envies car ta vie est salie
Si toi enfant de cette heure que le doute a saisi là
Tu avances triste dans la nuit, crois-tu seulement au bonheur

Mais toi enfant du malheur que le monde a proscrit là
Ta vie n’a-t-elle aucun sens que tu attendes l’échéance
Pouvoir mourir demain n’embellit pas ce jour
Dans ton esprit malsain n’y a-t-il plus d’amour

Fais confiance à la vie et retrouve le sourire
Entends-tu l’amertume qui hurle contre ces lois
Le monde et ses coutumes t’ont dérobé ta foi
Ta lâche hypocrisie détruira ton avenir

Notre temps est compté notre cas est fini
Tombent ces masques frivoles et sans épanouissement
Ton esprit égaré a reconnu l’ennui
Tous mes mots s’envolent à la lisière du néant
Track Name: THEY LIED TO US
Instrumental
Track Name: PARIS 2052
Another day rises from the dead
Always the same music in their head
Men are lying on the ground
They lost their mind
Into the shabby light

Under the sun this tragedy
Seems to be light and far
People are detached and blind,
They tear and tear apart

Oooho they tear they tear apart
Into the red into the red light
They fall down they fall down
They tear apart

The air turned into a sickening way
Smoke and the soft smell of burn
You can even touch fear and desperation
All over the town the looks are black

Under the sun this tragedy
Seems to be light and far
People are detached and blind,
They tear and tear apart
Track Name: ILLUSIONS
Yet, I've lost my temper
‘Cause of feelings you can't handle...
Seeking for a lover?
For each one I light a candle
How many rules you've transgressed
Reasoning with you is hopeless
Lies upon lies upon lies
Yet, illusions glow in your eyes

Illusion, misperception
Every desire will keep it glowing
Addiction to delusion
Everyday you'll end up crying
'Till you're remain steady and serene
Tears will flow just like everyday
'Till you're ready to hear what I say
Peace of mind awaits your heart to be clean

No angels, nor demons
Will help you in such a tight spot
So quit misleading questions
And stop yelling at god and devil
Will you understand there's no plot?
It came to your head ‘cause you were fragile
Please believe me when I talk to you
And gradually it might help you through

Your meandering fate
Dancing on the dust
It's almost too late
But you're not at all cursed

Illusion, misperception
Every desire will keep it glowing
Addiction to delusion
Everyday you'll end up crying

React and start fighting through
Can't you see you're in command?
In the sweet palm of your hand
Lies the power you need to

Lost for words in this alley
No matter who I might be
Lover, father or buddy
The rain falls and you're smiley
Track Name: LE CODE (AN OTHER WORLD REMIX)
