LYRICS

 

NEIL IN BOREDOMLAND

Standing next to your horse
You have a look at this golden railing
With a steady pace you crossed it
But your faithful companion refuses to follow you
Leave the green meadows,
the caresses under your feet become scratches.
The tiny train is waiting for you, you don't know it
It will take you there.


Carry on, Carry on, Fly straight away
Carry on,
No need for maps or compass.
Carry on, Carry on, Fly straight away
Carry on,
Time over there doesn't exist.
Carry on, Carry on, Carry on, Carry on,
Fly straight away.


The train stopped
At the bottom of the big wheel
Follow the white rabbit
The Tea time you'll forget
Leave the farandole
The railing changed, its roots wrap around you
The dead rats burst out laughing,

you don't know it, they take you there


Carry on, Carry on, Fly straight away
Carry on,
The cold and some puffs of smoke.
Carry on, Carry on, Fly straight away
Carry on,
Mind over there doesn't exist.
Carry on, Carry on, Carry on, Carry on,
Fly straight away.

SKIPPING STONES

Here is an old wooden lodge

At the heart of a deep dark forest

Full of tears I’ve cried for you my love

Full of dreams I've had about you my love

 

Taking this track for one last time

I won’t come back, not again

With one’s arms folded I go barefoot my love

To forget the dreams I had about you my love

When I go for a walk beside the lake

The skipping stones I make sound like hearts beating

Faster and stronger; like hearts beating

When you come next

All the things I’ve built for you

All the things you meant for me

All the things I did for you

Lost in dark blue

I feel so scared without you

You where the only one who knew

In my glass I can see you

You’re fading, moving away

 

My memories are going in the air

I dry my tears and start smiling

One last skipping stone

One last skipping stones to say goodbye

And start forgetting my past

When I go for a walk beside the lake

The skipping stones I make sound like hearts beating

Faster and stronger; like hearts beating

When you come next

All the things I’ve built for you

All the things you meant for me

All the things I did for you

Lost in dark blue

Here was an old wooden lodge

At the heart of a deep dark forest

Full of tears I forgot, my friend

Full of dreams I lost, my friend...

A DARK SECRET

They'll never have seen the starry sky.
Shining, glittering, no wishes, no falling stars.
It's a dark night...
A single light...flashes, such violent memories.
It's a dark night, they're rooted to the spot.
It's a dark night...
Darkness seems to always have been there.
It's a dark night...



In the whole silence of the plain, we sometimes hear rustles...carried by the wind.
A secret...A dark secret...
When the dark side of the moon comes out...
The Unfortunate Animals Company, ghosts or survivors, about a long gone story...



They'll never know the heat of a woodfire.
Scars speak for themselves.
The only flames, those dancing in the eyes of their torturers...
Burning their small wounded bodies...
It's a cold night, they're rooted to the spot.
It's a cold night...
The pain seems to always have been there.
It's a cold night...


In the whole silence of the plain, we sometimes hear rustles...carried by the wind.
A secret...A dark secret...
When the dark side of the moon comes out...
The Unfortunates Animals Company, ghosts or survivors, about a long gone story...


It's a quiet night, just a last breath...
It's a quiet night...
A blast...and finally the release...
It's a quiet night...

THE STRANGER

Dawn slowly caressed my eyelids.

A weak glow seemed to flicker in the twilight;

The flame of a lantern into the heavy mist.

Intrigued by the shape, I also rushed,

Furtively, into the forest.

Steps pounding in my head.

Earlier, this morning…Earlier...

What is on your mind,

before this cold night? 

Is there any hope & joy, or only heartache?

What is on your mind,

before this cold night?

Does November's wind bring us some sadness?

At the top of the trees, the majestic bird glided.

As a light breeze, he came to settle on the stranger’s arm.

The stranger with an owl…

«Get out of your hiding place. Your steps are light as feathers.

But the pine needles betrayed you.»

And he told me this nightmare.

Earlier, this morning…Earlier...


What is on your mind,

before this cold night? 

Is there any hope & joy, or only heartache?

What is on your mind,

before this cold night?

Does November's wind bring us some sadness?

I dived inside the big owl’s eyes…

Children with an empty look...

LOST FALLING LEAF


Fell from her tree at the end of automn
Brought by fresh wind from her tree, the brown one
Nightfall’s coming, nightfall’s calling
This little leaf is running.


Running alone, swirling in an ocean of colours
Orange, yellow and brown,
Running alone, swirling in an ocean of colours
Lost falling leaf’s falling down.


No matter where she is
Who is she to criticize the freedom he offers to her?
Her colours are moving, from the inside, she’s dying.

Running alone, swirling in an ocean of despair
Grey, black and brown,
Running alone, swirling in an ocean of despair
Lost falling leaf’s falling down.

How to feel happy just...One more time?
Then she landed on the floor, on the grass
Full of flowers, green leaves and colours
Her last gaze she gave it to him.

Dying alone, swirling in an ocean of contents
Orange, yellow and brown,
Dying alone, swirling in an ocean of contents
Lost falling leaf is gone.

SLEEPLESS NIGHT

Lost in the middle of nowhere
She grasped an old cardboard piece in her hand
So hard that the sentence imprinted itself in
Deep inside herself, she'd never been able to get rid of it.


It was only a sentence,

It was only a sentence, on a cardboard piece
A last saved sentence
A treasure for her heart, before the failure to understand.
Sorrows and tears, after the revelation...

An old yellowed picture, sat on the fireplace
A vacant look, she stared at the clock's pendulum
Still clenching her cardboard piece, with her tense and frozen fingers,
Waiting for an unhoped return

 

It was only a sentence,

It was only a sentence, on a cardboard piece.
A last saved sentence
A treasure for her heart, before the failure to understand.
Sorrows and tears, after the revelation...


A tear drop along her cheek
Drop by drop, her solitude had never stopped to increase
Exhausted of waiting
The small cardboad piece disappeared in the flames

BEYOND YOUR WILDEST DREAMS

That the music follows your way,
on the most flowery paths,
As on the most difficult trails
And know that there will always be,
a kindly and lonely soul,
The one who you taught,
that a rythm might be louder than words.

 

His eyes are colour of Ireland
with the green of her meadows
with the blue of her rivers.

His spirit wishes you happiness
He found his rest in the past, where is living the sweetness
But his soul is at peace for ever
It's his chance to carry on
for this woman with the enchanting voice
He wishes her voice to go through every paths in the world
touching the heavy hearts of every single good man
And remains carved in the mind
of the thousand people who understand that pleasure goes
with folk, peace, love and nature.

FOGGY SONG

The hail was falling,
hitting the chimney.
The wind blowed so hard,
almost like a destructive storm.
After having been fixing the dancing shadows,
she had finally fallen asleep.
Silvery's reflections dazzled her,
the fish woman appeared.
The place didn't seem unknow to her,
like a feeling of déja vu
« Be careful in the foggy swamp.
Be careful, be careful,
Don't venture there!»


We are the Toxic Kids.
Welcome to our kingdom!
No way to escape
the golden fire dance.
We are the Toxic Kids.
Welcome to our kingdom!
We're slowly dying with
the bowels of the Earth.



What did they do to deserve this destiny?
This destiny...


She woke up with a start,
with a sharp pain in her tummy.
The storm was slowly calming down.
The wax poured along the candle...
She didn't remember anymore
about the dream she just had.
Her husband got up and joined her.
He embraced her tenderly.
The smell of coffee and grilled toast
was still flingering in the lodge.
« Be careful in the foggy swamp.
Be careful, be careful,
Don't venture there ! »


We are the Toxic Kids.
Welcome to our kingdom!
No way to escape
the golden fire dance.
We are the Toxic Kids.
Welcome to our kingdom!
We're slowly dying with
the bowels of the Earth.


We are the Toxic Kids.
Welcome to our kingdom!
No way to escape
the golden fire dance.
We are the Toxic Kids.
Welcome to our kingdom!
We're slowly dying with
the bowels of the Earth.
We're slowly sinking
in the foggy swamp waters.

BREAKING BAD

Remember the time

Innocent, young, no monsters

Just before tears in your eyes

You lived from day to day.

You were...you were...

Everything was still possible.

Imagine the life you dreamed of.

You were...breaking bad...

Everything was still possible.

Being what you wanted to be.

You were...breaking bad...

I can’t read between the lines.

What are you waiting for, since a while?…

I can’t read between the lines.

Time and tide wait for no man

Day in day out

Obsessed by lots of things

Totally consumed with

Poison in your veins

You were...you were...

Everything seems impossible.

Far away is the life you dreamed of.

You were...breaking bad...

Everything seems impossible.

Forgot what you wanted to be

You were...breaking bad...

 

I can’t read between the lines.

What are you waiting for, since a while?…

I can’t read between the lines.

Time and tide wait for no man

It’s time to turn the page.

It’s really time!…

Stop this masquerade, this evil beverage!

It’s time!...

UNDER THE BIG TREE

Boots and soaked feet, we went there,

Fast walk under the falling rain,

Reaching our little shed under the big tree.

Primroses bloomed...

Tell me why do you look so serious?

Your eyes are dark grey and hide something mysterious.

You know how I am, very curious.

Don't try to lie...

Daisies bloomed...

Tell me why do you look so serious?

Are you still able to do something delirious?

You know how I could become very furious,

If your child heart never comes back.

Mallow and blooming, your fragrance overwhelmed us.

Dew’s droplets, a path of beautiful pearls

Reaching the little owl sheltering under the big mushroom.

Primroses bloomed...

Tell me why do you look so serious?

Your eyes are dark grey and hide something mysterious.

You know how I am, very curious.

Don't try to lie...

Daisies bloomed...

Tell me why do you look so serious?

Are you still able to do something delirious?

You know how I could become very furious,

If your child heart never comes back.


Some sand in our pockets, we went there,

Escorted by the black and red soldiers,

Reaching the small fortress under the big trees.
