Nicolas RESSOT Allez savoir si ce n'est pas le démon de midi !? Alors que tout allait pour le mieux avec Anneke, voilà que je me suis entiché bien malgré moi, bien entendu, d'une chanteuse à la voix de sirène. Comment vais-je sauver mon couple à présent ? Pardon Anneke ; pardonne-moi... Favorite track: Synthesised Happiness.

Track Name: Music
Music doesn’t speak anymore
It doesn’t whisper in your ear
And tell you what your searching for

Music doesn’t dance anymore
It doesn’t sparkle in the distance
Like it did before

Music doesn’t touch anymore
It doesn’t take you in its arms
And pull you down to the floor

Music doesn’t answer anymore
That once solid of connections
Eludes me

It doesn’t speak to me
It doesn’t speak to me
It doesn’t speak to me
I speak to it.
Track Name: A Body
You don't have a soul
You are a soul
What you have is a body

Night things bump
We stumble from depth to height
Focus lost, we fumble try as we might
To keep some distance
From the deeper truth
That at the greatest depth there is
Nothing inside of you

Down and out
Full and empty
We long and long
Silence to machinations
Going on and on and on
You're complete
You don't know it yet
Don't know yourself
Track Name: Shards
There used to be a lamplight in your eyes
A microscopic floodlight
Now what do I find
Nothing but the shards she left behind

There used to be a flavour on your tongue
An enigmatic backbite
Now you’ve lost that spice
And nothing seems to spark or reignite

As you rake the cobwebs from your face
And clear the film that stuck your lids
You’ll feel a sentimental bliss
When you’re returned your senses
I’ve been watching, waiting, wondering
Is there a fusilin for this
Unyielding, unsuspecting
Eradicate her and her polluted lips

When you find your own way back home
There’s a light on always
When you find your way back home
There’s a future she can’t erase
I used to see a floodlight
Now what do I find
Nothing but the shards she left behind
Track Name: Waves
It’s not my only language
The water speaks to me
It fills my soul with whispers
Longing for ocean sweeps
I want to feel the rush around me
Feel its power crushing on me

Thank you to the fire
It’s not like I’m controlling any flames
Thank you to the fire
That burns so deep
I’m running through the waves

Some put stones in their pockets
Some lace up concrete shoes
For peace to fold around me
Sing the Translucent Blues
I need the soothing cool on my skin
I feel it wash the darkness within
Track Name: Things Your Eyes Have Seen
Ghostly thoughts evade you
And your conscience enslaves
You must slip out the corners of the frame
You let form
Question why you care, did you ever
Who, or what is the form that oversees
The edges of your mind

Cause we should keep a close eye
On the patterns forming
When we are not looking
Flee into the cream vignette and float away
But you only dream
The things your eyes have seen

When your minds adrift where’s it go
Pay attention
To the places that your body can’t follow
Be watchful of the shadows
And characters that play out
All the horrors that you’re rushing to forget
Track Name: Something New
Oh, lets run to the riverside
By the dawn when the distance hides
In the mist we are paused in time
Oh, come with me

Here where the light filtered through
We’d given up on feeling something new
Take us to where they serve desire
We want to be forever dissatisfied

Oh, and here we revive our thirst
Apathy it has done it’s worst
Light to use and heights to seek
Oh, come with me
Track Name: Synthesised Happiness
It’s a game, she plays herself
She’s got one of everything
But it eats her up inside to
Know she never has

It’s a game he plays to feel
Something, anything that’s real
Cuts and long-sleeves
Laboured heartbeats
Soaking in his sorrow

It’s a game we play to freak
Out with what we should’ve done
In each circumstance another
Path we wish we’d taken

In a game we know is play
We believe it anyway
Breaking rules we made so fragile
Lost and found control

It’s the curse of our age to be unhappy
Our biggest fights against ourselves
With no enemies our thirst prevails
To synthesise the joy we hope
Somewhere, someone has
Track Name: Weighted Light
Where you go you are, so go
You are my shining star, so shine
Our hearts are never far apart

Weighted light leans through your window

You packed up all your dreams and left
Come back too soon I’ll kick your ass
You’ve got so much to prove, so start

Weighted light leans through your window
Track Name: Sails
The distant light held in the fog
And nothing ever could go wrong
We knew, we knew, we knew
We knew our own strength would hold us

We couldn’t wait to get away
We deftly tied our dreams to sails
It blew, it blew, it blew
It blew our boat over oceans

Tie your dreams to sails
Tie them down

Beneath the canopy of stars
We slip between the deepest darks
The hope we held reflected in our eyes
Never blinking

An empty vessel with much to trade
A waking vision never fades
The thunder beats
But beating stronger still
The drumming of our will

The night air beckons
Tie your dreams to sails
The winds are changing
Tie them down
The water rises
Tie your dreams to sails
The winds are changing
Tie them down

We lost an awful lot
We lost enough to sink us down
But clinging to the rocks
It was a mountain that we found
