Lyrics

After 3 years without making Rock music, here is my new album: Next.

Once again, I wrote, composed, recorded and mixed myself all of the songs. I'm thus responsible for both qualities and flaws in the album. Hopefully, the qualities will surpass the flaws and you will enjoy listening to it!

Many thanks to Elham Mottahed-Asdaghi (Canadian), Amy McGirr (Irish), Robbie Stone and Elliot Shekell (English) for lending me their voices in the song Gossip!!!

GHOSTS

Oh I hear voices again
Oh they're expressing their pain
Oh they're shadows in my realm
Oh outlines of the damned

They spawn, they spawn
they spawn they spawn
I see them all
and soon they're gone

They spawn, they spawn
they spawn they spawn
I see them all
and soon they're gone

Oh they're gathering again
Oh in and out of the shade
Oh will they leave or remain
Oh will they blossom or fade

They spawn, they spawn
they spawn they spawn
I see them all
and soon they're gone

They spawn, they spawn
they spawn they spawn
I see them all
and soon they're gone

CAN'T SEE THROUGH MY EYES

I know when you burst in tears
you will never overcome your fears in front of me
You've seen the worst of me
and yet you forgive everything you see

I've seen you drown into my lies
hold out your arms, cling to my side
reach out, reach out for me
No matter how hard you try
the fact remains, you can't see through my eyes
reach out, reach out for me

I love the way you took my pawn and bishop and my rook
but haven't noticed in between, I killed your pieces with my queen
You'd like to be but never can
the servant of my whole domain

I've seen you drown into my lies
hold out your arms, cling to my side
reach out, reach out for me
No matter how hard you try
the fact remains, you can't see through my eyes
reach out, reach out for me

It's the occasion
It's not an option
Go back to where you're from
and give yourself some freedom
na na na na na na
na na na na na na
na na na na na na
na na na na na na

It's the occasion
It's not an option
Go back to where you're from
and give yourself some freedom
na na na na na na
na na na na na na
na na na na na na
na na na na na na

I've seen you drown into my lies
hold out your arms, cling to my side
reach out, reach out for me
No matter how hard you try
the fact remains, you can't see through my eyes
reach out, reach out for me

GROOM AND BRIDE

The bride is watching the white dress
still laying on the bed
The groom is smoking outside
and talking to a friend

They're both very anxious
They're both smiling to the angels
to the commitment they make in common
the life they now choose
is gonna be theirs to live

The crescent moon illuminates the track
that leads to the altar
where a pagan ritual will take place
to bind them together

They look very gracious
They look at the starry night sky
far into the future that awaits them
They're facing the life
that is gonna be theirs to live

GOSSIP

Oh my God, do you know what she did?
He's got the personality of an amoeba
That girl is ugly, pure and simple
The guy is lousy, don't waste your time
She put on some weight
Do you know what he told me?

In the land of certainty
Prejudice is a law
You are what others will see
And not what you're longing to be

She's a bitch, everyone knows that
He must have some kind of skin disease
Her whole life is one big mistake
You won't believe what I heard
Thinking is not her strong point
I told that lazy bastard to get lost

In the land of certainty
Prejudice is a law
You are what others will see
And not what you're longing to be

And the world goes round and round
and round and round and round
They come and disappear
They give in to their fear

In the land of certainty
Prejudice is a law
You are what others will see
And not what you're longing to be

And the world goes round and round
and round and round and round
They come and disappear
They give in to their fear

And the world goes round and round
and round and round and round
They come and disappear
They give in to their fear

CASTAWAYS

In this magical, crazy, cynical life that is burning us all
I see predators, I see conquerors, empires that rise and fall
Empty gazes are looking in the far reaches of the undone
And they're castaways, victims of a betrayal that washed them ashore

And they're watching the sun rise
stunning view of the blood-red sky
Joy is no longer in their eyes
and yet they're standing firm and proud
And they know what lies ahead of them
a life of sacrifice and courage
Get away to the promised land
and build their lives again

Trapped into a swirl, spinning in a whirl
that makes no sense at all
They're lost in their world, keep moving forward,
end up facing a wall

LIFE

Do we owe anything to children we do not have?
do we owe anything
Do we have to give birth as we once were given life?
Oh we're alive
We all consider that it's only fair to breed away
away, away, away, away
But I am one of those who express best their selfishness

Yes we're alive
Enjoy, the end is near

LET IT ROCK

Baby you set my world on fire
I play your strings and teach you some manners
Ain't many things that get me much higher
This feeling I'll call it desire

Every morning, every night
Every day you're by my side
When I hold you I'm alright
You got me thrilled, it's quite a ride

Let it rock
Let it rock
Let it rock

You've got a friend with very big strings
another one that's banging and beating
Without them the rhythm is missing
but when they're here the music's a blessing

You've got a twin sister and you're proud
to twist and shout before the crowd
Your aim is just to get them wowed
So come on now and play it loud

Let it rock
Let it rock
Let it rock

Let it rock
Let it rock
Let it rock

DARKNESS

Everything is dark around me
No window, no shadow, no sorrow nor tomorrow
If only I'd remember how I got in here
I need some answers though I don't feel any fear

What is this place supposed to be
What happened to reality
How long have I been dreaming
What have I missed, just tell me

What is this all supposed to mean
Am I dead or am I sleeping
Is it worth waking up and see
There's nothing out there for me

What is this place supposed to be
What happened to reality
How long have I been dreaming
What have I missed, just tell me

What is this all supposed to mean
Am I dead or am I sleeping
Is it worth waking up and see
There's nothing out there for me

Remember, remember, there's nothing
nothing out there for me
Remember, remember, there's nothing
nothing out there for me
Remember, remember, there's nothing
nothing out there for me
Remember, remember, there's nothing
nothing out there for me

RENEGADES

Sit in a train by the window pane
you see the rain, all right yeah!
A razor blade and you start to shave
you see the rainbow colors fade
You know your friends won't wait in vain for pretty Jane
They're in no mood for being cool, by now you know the rule

A bunch of renegades I would advise you to simply avoid
They feel no pride or shame, their future has already been destroyed

The train arrives, it's right on time
You take your bag and get off
You rent a car and drive all night
You sure enjoy the ride
By now your friends are making plans and wait for you to join them
It's gonna be a hell of a time if you put danger aside

A bunch of renegades I would advise you to simply avoid
They feel no pride or shame, their future has already been destroyed

They dress up well, costumes and ties,
Expensive shoes, they're ready
Jane walks up to the handsome bloke,
witting victim of her joke
They draw their guns and scare the guy, he gives them all he's got
The brotherhood escapes the neighborhood, like modern Robin Hoods

A bunch of renegades I would advise you to simply avoid
They feel no pride or shame, their future has already been destroyed

A bunch of renegades I would advise you to simply avoid
They feel no pride or shame, their future has already been destroyed

SUMMER SOLSTICE

They're in a ring of rocky-greyish standing stones and greenish grass
They've gathered for a burial
The summer solstice is today

This is a celebration day
a mournful, traditional rite
From everywhere clans will arrive
and wail their prayers to the skies

Their voices yell then whisper supplication words
They help their deceased king to find his way homewards

A ray of sunlight hits the crowd
and makes everyone quiet down
The world seems to be slowing down
as rise the calls of a newborn

They're in a ring of rocky-greyish standing stones and greenish grass
They've gathered for a burial
The summer solstice is today

WAVES

Just a little tune to say
That I still think of you
And me on the dunes
When we were younger then
And yet the waves
Have long gone in the shade
Just a little tune to say
That I still think of you
