Track Name: For Ariane
Be well little Ariane
Sleep well Little Ariane

Break your cell
escape from this hell
live outside, not in your head

Be well
Be well
Track Name: Oh baby, baby!
So here we are, it s just you and I
Just like that night where our love made no doubt
Now i m behind the stearing wheel
You on the passenger side with your hand on my tigh


I had braught you lunch so that both of you don t crave
It wasn t just you and I, it was now us
I m anxious, nervous, name it just as we arrive
where you give your name, then they take a life

They are taking you away
I can t follow but I stay
I m shaking as I wait
I m doubting, I don t pray

Well firsts things first Oh baby you were OK
Second thing first Baby you were happy
Third thing first, how can this be meaning nothing
Oh baby have you forgotten to tell me something

So here we are, it s not just you and I
It s my family, my friends and everyone who cares
I ve always wondered why my mother cried
when i told her that you were my bride

It s like she knew everything by experience
She felt it inside and it only took her stare
i was confused but now everything makes sense
Oh baby, baby....who are you.....you never told me.
Track Name: Curse
Everything is crumbing around here
And i m watching with interest because i am the artist
Like a puzzle that makes no sense
You fit in the right piece, the image is not matching

Oh curse these choices...

If it doesn t work, find another way
It used to be clear and i ve let it fade away
All my favorite songs are too sad anyways
When the time will come, i ll be ready

If i had just one wish
I would start it over back in the time when i wasn t scared
And these words woudldn t exist
And i wouldn t have tried to right down any shit like this

Oh curse these choices...

If it doesn t work, find another way
It used to be clear and i ve let it fade away
All my favorite songs are too sad anyways
If my time is come, I am ready
Track Name: Little dancer
Dance little lyier, Dance for me
Lie little Dancer, Lie to me
Cry Little lyier, cry for me
Dance little Lyier, Lay with me

Little dancer your love is cold
Little Lyier your heart is stone
Track Name: When later means never
Is this a waste of time, are we trough yet. I wonder
What number do i have in your lovers line. I wonder
Is this a waste of time, is it worthy of the efforts
It s pilling up in my head, yet i dont know the answer

She is always running left and right, no one can ever catch her
well she can stop for a night. breakfast is like an Adieu
Is this a waste of time, it s just smileys and letters
Its such a waste of time when later means never

Sometimes Angels fly by
They dont even know you were waiting all this time
Track Name: People do what they do
The pain is yours.
You can't share it but you can numb it with pills
But you won't
You want to live through, you want to live it true

Since she's been gone
Everything around you as been changing for the best
Or the worst
You don't know it's too soon to tell

In the end people do what they do
And they all have their reasons
Just stay true

And don't trust her words, you know better what they do
Now its the end of your secret rendez-vous
Don't try to hang on, she's letting you loose
In the end people just do what they do

Sitting on the edge of your day
Trying to slow down that train inside
You got stoned, high above the highway

A simple math divided your heart in half
And to keep faith and no hate
You've simply let it go and slowly walked away

In the end people do what they do
And they all have their reasons
Just stay true
Track Name: Contemplating the empty
Dig deep, dig deep as you can
And see if you can find a treasure
Don't sleep, empty up those cans
Lay down, wait up for medical measures

Pass out, and when you wake you're alone
The bottom of the well is now your home
The echoes is nice, but no one is hearing your songs
Take a good look around, this mess is your own

"Hell NO! it's not me! This mirror must be broken or reflecting wrong!"
Truth is it is real. How could i've been knocked out for so long
It's scary to leave this. It's a long climb. just don't look down
I'm staring anyways, comtemplating the empty

Every second that pass is writing down your story
Take what you need. What is done is done
No need to shovel and bury
And sitting alone, refusing any help
is like burning these pages away
Don't stop writing your story
Don't stop writing your story
No need to shovel and bury
Track Name: What are you searching
What are you searching?
What are you aspiring to?
What can you build?
What can you create?
What makes you proud?
How hard you want it?

Just take your time,everything's fine
Just take a step closer if you can't reach
Just lay your hand right into mine
Sometimes we learn, somotimes we teach
Track Name: Shareholders
You are string puppet actioned by egos driven by their pockets
You're a pawn, a number since you wore their crest on your chest
Failure or succes, you're still a name on paper, their marionette
Everyday starts at dawn and it ends at sunset
And if you speak too loud they will get upset
Then they will shut you down before you make a mess
Shareholders just care about their wallets

While you are sharing the rent with spiders
While you are sharing your bed with bed bugs and spiders

You are a string puppet actioned yo provide more profits
You have a voice of your own but you spit what they wnat you to speak
And it's just prechewed shit and people are eating it and loving it
Will they pay for all our coffins?
Or will they sell our corpes and ashes...
Track Name: Thank you
Inside these walls
No sound, no light. Just a pounding heart
Inside these walls
No love, at least, not anymore
Inside these walls
No cooking smells, no smiles
Just a mind set at fast foward
Inside these walls
There was once love, now there's nothing at all

But thank you

We were two, we were one, we were once and now strangers
We were blue, we were red, we were white but transparente, never
We were two, we were one, we were once and now strangers
Still thank you

Together we killed the sun
Then i was alone tearing to the moon
I never beleived it was forever
but why did you screw it so soon
I was down on my knees
But you helped me stood
Inside these walls
There was once love, now it's dust on the floor

But thank you
