Track Name: Archives de la Vie
Qu’est-ce que la vie si ce n’est une perpétuelle erreur qui nous sert d’apprentissage.

Nous nous trompons pour apprendre. Un essai, une erreur...

Et que pourrais-je t’expliquer sur l’amour?
L’amour est le refuge de nos peurs.

Je t’aimerai tout en apprenant à te détester. Je te détesterai pour t’avoir aimé. Mais ne t’en fais pas, je resterai avec toi jusqu’à ce que tu trouves quelque chose de mieux.

Et ensuite, quand j’aurai réussi à extraire le peu de sang qui reste dans ton coeur, je continuerai à décorer mon intérieur tout en créant mon macro-univers où je serai le seul astre qui illuminera vos têtes programmées en série.

Mon ego, mon doux et tendre ego... Ne le touche pas! Il est en verre.

Et que puis t’expliquer sur l’amour? Oh, l’amour... ce grand trou noir où habitent nos peurs.

C’est comme ça, tout simplement.
Track Name: With You
Ils se sont connus à distance...
Ils se sont séparés à distance...

Et pendant ce temps, il continuait à pleuvoir

Et que pourrais-je t’expliquer sur l’amour?
L’amour est le refuge de nos peurs


Have you ever missed the train?
The wrong time and the wrong place
Lonely boy leading his way
Will I ever see it rain with you?
With you

Ils se sont dévêtus à distance...
Ils se sont réfugiés dans la distance...

Et pendant ce temps, il continuait à pleuvoir

Avec toi,

L’amour est le refuge de nos peurs

Broken hearts in broken frames
Getting old is just a game
Go ahead and drain my brain
´Cause I will never see it rain with you
With you
Track Name: Jester With No Jokes (feat. Marta Domingo)
Farewell, so long, goodbye... look who´s getting closer
But who cares? You obviously don´t.
Each one has to find their own way back home.
And the day we sang along I stopped sinking like a stone

I can feel the rain running down my hair
I still feel her eyes staring into my past
But I guess I have to let it go
She´s the Queen and I´m the Jester with no jokes, once again, once again

Farewell, so long, long walk...my boots are getting smaller
But who prays? I do not
You died and left a trail of dust going down my throat
And the day we sang along I stopped sinking like a stone

I can feel the rain running down my hair
I still feel her eyes staring into my past
But I guess I have to let it go
She´s the Queen and I´m the Jester with no jokes, once again

But I guess you have to let me go
I´m the Queen and you are the Jester with no jokes, once again, once again, once again

But I guess I have to let it go
She´s the Queen and I´m the Jester with no jokes, once again
Track Name: Concrete Feet
We were not made to be walkers on concrete feet
There´s nothing left to do but lose myself in you

Go put yourself to bed
Wait for a brand new day
I´m reading your book again
´Cause I didn´t get the end

So, could you comfort me?
´Cause I don´t wanna be hanging around if there´s nothing left to talk about

Why did you change your clothes?
Naked you look the same
No one has set the rules for this stupid game

So, could you comfort me?
´Cause I don´t wanna be hanging around if there´s nothing left to talk about
So, could you comfort me?
´Cause I don´t wanna be hanging around if there´s nothing left to worry about
If there is something I can do for you
Please pay me back by not leaving so soon
I´ve got the feeling that nothing is fine
I can´t close the door to the things left behind
Track Name: Colors Of The Sky (feat. Chlöe´s Clue)
Has anyone realized that we live too fast?
The present is gone
The future is past
It looks like we are running out of time

I remember the days when love was real
Money was tight but people still smiled by looking at the colors of the sky

Don´t you know that I don´t want fame?. I don´t play games
I just wanna enjoy the colors of the sky
Don´t you know that I´m not crazy?. Maybe I´m lazy
I just wanna enjoy the colors of the sky

I´ve been wondering why I´m always late and why do people I know keep so much hate
I´m suffering from certain lack of faith
I remember the days when we hung out walking around, enjoying the sun, smoking some weed and drinking as much as we could.

Don´t you know that I don´t want fame?. I don´t play games
I just wanna enjoy the colors of the sky.
Don´t you know that I´m not crazy?. Maybe I´m lazy
I just wanna enjoy the colors of the sky
and find out the reason why I feel so lone
Track Name: A Place Called Nowhere
I live in a place called "Nowhere"
Between the "Hopeless Street" and the "Failure Square"
With pedestrians looking down trying to hide their faces
No one smiles here

I can feel the wind blowing on my nape
And just three blocks away someone´s calling my name
Why don´t we burn some cash just to ease the pain?
No one smiles here

I guess I should move out to find another nest
But I won´t take the pictures
I´m taking only the frames
To start all over again

Instead of supermarkets we´ve got garbage cans
Where people try to buy some respect for themselves
We have kids playing on the swings covered in spiders web
No one smiles here

I guess I should move out to find another nest
But I won´t take the pictures
I´m taking only the frames
Somebody stole my wings I need to fly away
But I won´t take the pictures
I´m taking only the frames
Track Name: Haze
Following the line, skipping the cold
Trying to tear apart a black blindfold
After many nights and many days
Now I can conclude there´s no safe place

Keep your eyes closed
Keep your mouth shut
Don´t make any noise
Lock your memories under the bed
The Haze has come to your home

Rejection to the smiles we can afford
´Cause when we get them near we let them go
And then we just cheer up with worthless words
Trying to enjoy a ride through dead end roads

Keep your eyes closed
Keep your mouth shut
Don´t make any noise
Lock your memories under the bed
The Haze has come to your home
Track Name: Sleepwalker
I took my time to learn your name so that you couldn´t let me down
Expecting is what people do even though they don´t offer too much

This is going to take me a while
Will I disappear if I settle down?
Forget about those things I wanted to say
I hardly can remember your face
Could we please talk about what´s real now?

It takes some time to find your place so that nobody gets hurt
Blaming is what people do even though they don´t offer too much

This is going to take me a while
Will I disappear if I settle down?
Forget about those things I wanted to say
I hardly can remember your face
Could we please talk about what´s real now?
Track Name: Much More Than We Need
Wake up, It´s about time to go through things we´ve done wrong
Always trying to find dreams that do not last for too long
Taking much more than we really need
The richest are the poor because they cannot buy love

Wake me up when all this shit is over
Maybe then we will rebuild this world
If we keep on taking much more than we really need some angels will just come to destroy all things we´ve known

And I´ll be in peace with that
I will die all alone lying down on my own
Knowing that I once had you

Greed is God, when God just means nothing
And here we are feeding all this nonsense
We just keep on digging when the hole is big enough
Big enough to bury us all ´cause our time is gonna come

And I´ll be in peace with that
I will die all alone lying down on my own
Knowing that I once had you
Track Name: There Is More Room In My Bed
I wonder how you live
I wonder how you flow
´Cause since the day that I died it seems the light has turned off
So I thought you could help ´cause I think I´m lost
I feel I´m going down ´cause I have seen my own ghost

My girl please bring me back my happiness although there´s more room in my bed since you ain´t here.
Girl please bring me back the days I´ve lost
no, there´s no pain ´cause there´s no love and you ain´t here

People you know are people who deceive you
So I think it´s better to burn out than fade away
And watch out your words, the way you hang out in your own world
I´ll plant a tree, I´ll write a book and I´ll have a child
And you know that I am serious when I say:

Babe please bring me back my happiness although there´s more room in my bed since you ain´t here.
Girl please bring me back the days I´ve lost
no, there´s no pain ´cause there´s no love and you ain´t here
Track Name: Break My Soul
Soon I will enjoy one thousand lifes
Someday I´ll show my best smile
I´ll be your shadow for just one night
And after that I´ll step aside
Oh Lord, I think I should go now
´Cause I feel I´m getting sick of hearing you baby

Old, I´m just too old to move away
But I´m to young to say "I´ll stay"
Maybe one day I´ll wonder "what, what have I won in my whole life?"
So Lord, don´t you hear me screaming now?
´Cause I think I´m getting sick of hearing you baby

It´s not time, time to break my soul
Just to please my own desires I´ll go my own way
It´s not time, time to break my soul
Just to please my own desires I´ll go my own way
Yes, yes,yes,yes!!

I´ve been waiting for this moment my whole life
Thinking I was wrong when I was really right
Now I´m turning crazy ´cause my lady is gone
I´m tired of this city
I´m tired of this world

So Lord, could you have some mercy now?
´Cause I feel I´m getting tired of praying to you old man

It´s not time, time to break my soul
Just to please my own desires I´ll go my own way
It´s not time, time to break my soul
Just to please my own desires I´ll go my own way

Please don´t go breaking my heart now, honey you know I´ll go on my way
Please don´t go breaking my heart now, honey you know I´ll go on my way

And I´m sure that nothing´s gonna change now
So if you really wanna know where my pain has gone you should better buy some flowers and take them to my grave
(go and find my memories)
In my grave I feel safe but I also feel so alone
How could I be so foolish to wish my own death
