Track Name: Come To El-h
Let's take a chance
Don't hesitate one sec, take a plane
Come to El-h

When your life was a mess
When your girlfriend left, let's breathe the air
Come to El-h

We know you'll love our girls and
You know we'll enjoy your stay
Seashore, concerts and good bands
What else could you ask for hell
Skaters here are all around

Riviera sucks to death
Come to the north of France
The place where we used to play

It's a rainy, windy, coldy country
Don't even think of having a swim
Bring umbrellas and your warmest sweat
If normandy has ever been the eden of your dreams

We know you'll love our girls and
You know we'll enjoy your stay
Seashore, concerts and good bands
What else could you ask for hell
Punkers here are all around

Try yourself to figure out
A stony sandless beach
Mutant fishes with shark sized teeth
The way city's designed
Leaves you wondering how it can last
When storms breaks out
Well you can't list all urban ills
But life in here is weirdly hectic
Rest is nonsense, such a mess ...
____
Track Name: Dead Only
Hey father
Life's so scary
I could hardly live without you

Hey father
Light source's scary
Life's so moronic when strength is out of range

And i know
That you'd be furious
And i know you'd tell me once more about those lies and paradise
Why did you leave me
Why should I live, it's more than I can fight

That was almost a perfect day
But I'm dead
Tell carolina she'll remain my princess

Dead only, dead only, dead only dead
____
Track Name: Tom Medlin
Do not stand at my grave and weep
I'm not there I don't sleep

I'm a thousand wind that blows
Diamond glints on snow

I'm the sunlight on ripened grain
I'm the gentle automn rain

When you awaken in the morning hush
I'm the swift up lifting rush

Of quiet birds in circled flights
I'm the soft star that shines art high

Do not stand at my grave and weep
I'm not there, I don't sleep
____
Track Name: Parapsychopathetistically Story
Is she blonde ? I don't know
Can't recall but one good time
Did we meet at a party? I don't know
Did we enjoy all night long? I don't know
What's the point ? The truth is I don't know

I can't call
Can't recall but one good time
The only living part of me
Most of people talk and turn
That's what i should have learnt

Yes she's blonde, all I know
She's still lying in bed with me
Why the fuck are sheets stained with blood?
Why can't i feel her breath at all?
Such a mess the truth is I don't know
____
Track Name: Faster Than Danger
Caroline has been longing for years
Bothering her parents 'til she got it
Her first flight, she'll do it next september
That's what she'd get for her 9th year

The take-off gave her adrenalin
But not so much as endorphin
She didn't understand the thing
She just witnessed people turning livid

She'd heard about those ones
Raping kingdoms and freedom
She thought they were nothing but unreal
She thought they were part of a story
Invented to frighten naughty kids

She wished she'd have fallen in love
Not only in dreams
She wished for a quiet nice growing
Not a last trip
Not that way, not that day
Sharing our earth atmosphere
That was her will
Feeling herself living
A human being with desires and tears

Spending time in negociations
Extending conflicts, not the peace
Caroline didn't perished
It's just a way to tell you thing
What if we could react faster than danger ?

Track Name: A Pray She Hate
Happened to be a real good life
Do i have now a cryptic clue of what we lived?
I perhaps missed the true meaning of your ideals

Happened to be a fairy life
As if time suspended its dirty flow
As if nothing hasn't really evolved
Cryogenics of our left spoken sincere

Now the time has come
Reinforce the core
Scrap the plan and be done with too much agony
Our hearts are crumbling
So damned conforming, where are we going?
Worst is rejected
Those things i forgive
Pulsing and rushing thru my body
Times we were buddies

Now I swear you can count me out
That was a self-fulfilling relationship
R.I.P. my being weak, that opaque mist
Now we're like two wires short-circuiting

Now the time has come
Reinforce the core
Scrap the plan and be done with too much agony
Our hearts are crumbling
So damned conforming, where are we going?
Worst is rejected
Those things i forgive
Pulsing and rushing thru my body
Times we were buddies

It's so weird when the magic
Meets our limits
It's so weird, it's just like falling in love
I promise to live a better way
I will appreciate

Now the time has come
Reinforce the core
Scrap the plan and be done with too much agony
Our hearts are crumbling
So damned conforming, where are we going?
Worst is rejected
Those things i forgive
Pulsing and rushing thru my body
I miss these times we were buddies

Track Name: Feeding Frenzy
Blasting economy
Networks are spreading underneath
Future's in agony
Welcome to 21st Century

Options and services we don't need definitely
Some of us caught that fucking modern gold frenzy
We're slowly moulting into cyber organics
D'you think we could feel virtual sufferings?

Tell me facism will disappear
Tell me violence is just a myth
Tell me human nature will soon be friendly
Tell me nuclear shits will cease
All I can see, is your quest for glory

Emotion's void and then we're surfing and burning
Ignoring we're just another .com on your list
Alienated we're abused, alienated we're used to
Stakes & greeds are way stronger than we

Tell me facism will disappear
Tell me violence is just a myth
Tell me human nature will soon be friendly
Tell me nuclear shits will cease
All I can see, is your quest for glory

Track Name: Operation Overlord
Seahore wrecks, silent plains, i'm mourning dazed
Hearts shed ultimate tears so red
Automn slices end of day
Pouring on an acid rain
Painful screams gave way to cold tainted waves

Chances were zero, we were already dead
I've never seen so much rage
Thousand people shot dead, deserted nameless
I'll stay 'til nightmare ends, not a personal cause, not even

Some undefineable thought, just the smell of blood
Burning corpses, dancing black clouds
Consuming what could be called souls

I miss my land
Shrillness of the D.C.A., it's like dying everyday
When nights fade away
Close the curtains, end of game
See you closer to my pains

We were nothing more nor less than targets
Like children used to play at fun fairs
Great disorder
Remember forever
What happened in June on its 6th day

When duty's on the benefit of human race
Eradicate man's madness
Where the fuck did we make mistakes ?

Please free my head
Those explosions I can't bear
Traumatize me everyday
See the damage
See what a brain can create
That's a thing I can't explain

And despite all shellshocked times
The big wheel keeps on turning
Still poles apart of our life plans
Then years of desolation
Why should we keep on turning ?
Never ending, desperately
Dreams outside in, death is smiling
Why should we keep
I'm rather sick, my only wish
To come back home ...
