It’s a little town from here Where there voices change but the people stay the same But it’s not clear if everyone is here Or locked inside the dirty side of evening out the finer points of your fulfilling years So I could say If I would play Would I end up even understanding? I’d have no way That’s it’s not for me Cause I’ll never see See the beauty inside it All the times we could take? Eventually everything will break Watch the people come now gone Walk around from time to time And whisper almost anything at all Relax my friend You can pretend We should be holding something so much bigger But You call me when I could fill in I still can’t win Or even see the outcome But I still change Just like the rain Even roses wilt with too much sunlight It should feel real It should be great If we only knew how to hold this upright Gotta keep this upright
Haven’t always been the best for you We call bullshit on the times you knew This window closes on an empty view And you move on saying there’s nothing new But keep these lights on When we get better Can you still believe It’s not the weather That makes it easy And I lost the letters And times forgets The things we had and the empty breaths I’m holding on to the pieces left It’s different now amongst your new best friends But not so easy to forget I’d hang around only to get upset And wake up instantly to this nice mess But I can’t If it was easy We’d fall apart I’d get so distant And you wouldn’t start But I can’t see it See through the dark It seems so simple Falling apart
So you spend your time Looking for the answers Another blurry line When all the while it leads to questions Do you believe ? Can you tell the future? Is it me? Why would I pretend to see When all you do is make believe But it’s no different Holding on to the same old strings It’s makes you feel bent But I can’t feel the same So I can’t stay Even if I should It’s not supposed to Change Change the way I walk Just to hear you say Itll never be It’ll never be ok So I spent some time And I lost some time It’s a piece of mind That makes the minutes last a mile You can look away And I can’t hear a thing Seems we say the same things Everyday in every way Forget about the little things
If you see the sign And fallback into place We believe these things that make us feel So appreciated But I fall And I stall Stumble down and never wanna call It’s all wrong I can’t tell if what you said would ever make sense So even the realest ones Go on and on and on Till I feel numb And I can’t tell right now Who’s the one who’s faking So I fall so down Ever wonder how the ground has grown I can’t tell. I’ll be well It’s just wishful thinking It’s just wishful thinking So you make you bed But you never make amends I try hard to hide But I just can’t pretend Small talks and long walks And we’re right back to the start It’s all wrong But not gone And I can see the light on
You think new words will make it easier That you have a lot on your plate That somehow it will get clearer The movement may have a new name But the pain’s still called the same
 We keep signing on Worn out with hollow bones Burying the sunrises to come Digging our graves for a loan This cage has no key We got to tear down the walls
 Social status, rewards, ambition, Awful rythms and dedication Sacrifices, moral violation Our rotting cities take their last breath at dawn, When our wit and limbs start to recover from their numb, When we have nothing to trade
 When the last wavering echoes of the buildings start to fade away
 Warm up our hands, flesh & hearts We worth better than this We have way better things to be We keep signing on Worn out with hollow bones Burying the sunrises to come Digging our graves for a loan This cage has no key We got to tear down the walls We’ll choose how we’ll explode The summer grows in us Let's shine and hurt ourselves for real, Reclaim what belongs to us, making some space for a thrill, Only our flames can burn our candles, We’re on the right side of the fire
Will it be the same The next time I come home? Will we meet again And find who we used to know? Does your voice shake Saying these « I should have… » All over again? Because mine always does These years felt like they would never end But now it feels like they never happened Never found a proper way to say goodbye Have we traced the lines drawn on our palms? It’s hard to think our lives someday intertwined: Mixtapes we’ve made, And all our friends who crashed into nameless silhouettes Faces, names & places Inside jokes & laughs All wrapped in blurred memories Like a far-distant light
Cernés nos yeux puis nos vies Rongées, nos silhouettes ivres Usés par le vieux monde Jusqu’à la corde, jusqu’à la lie Déchirons la trame uniforme des jours Poings contre poings, liesse et bravoure Lions nos coeurs fauves Lions nos coeurs fauves Percer les dédales, à l’abri des promesses Et des effroyables certitudes du quotidien, Prolonger l’enfance et devancer la sagesse Déserter le lieu des formes qui dépérissent
