Track Name: The Day of Raymond Ray
It’ s morning and he’s lying on his brand new bed
But there’s no roof above his head
It’s just another day he has to walk around
He wishes for a meal to be found

He finds the right place and waits in the line
Thinks ‘bout the days when he was fine
The line is huge, he has a doubt he’ll have his share
To starve again would be unfair

Just think that this poor fellow could be one of us
That we don’t look around and spend our lives in rush
And feel annoyed by his smell
Think we know him well
From the star in which we dwell

He’s heading to the park to find a bench
He hopes to meet some of his friends
A couple hours later he’s had enough
Next stop of his ramble is a public bath

It’s evening and he’s strolling through the mall
To seem normal is his goal
This vapid day is not about to end
But he’s about to built another brand new bed

Just think that this poor fellow could be one of us
That we don’t look around and spend our lives in rush
And feel annoyed by his smell
Think we know him well
From the star in which we dwell

The sound of his name is fading away
He tries to recall… who was Raymond Ray…..

Just think that this poor fellow could be one of us
That we don’t look around and spend our lives in rush
And feel annoyed by his smell
Think we know him well
From the star in which we dwell
Track Name: Marianne Loup
This is my only sin babe
That I’m in love with all my heart
With a strange pussy-cat
She is……Marianne Loup!

She always has a crab-smile
Her nose souffle like exhaust
Her teeth tremble like a dog’s
She is……Marianne Loup!

Call her! I want her only for a smile
A little scratching in my mind
Make me! Marianne Loup!

Find her! I wanna dream with her eyes
Dance in other side
Play me! Marianne Loup!

Who is the best player in Michigan, I am
But who is the best player in Michigan...?
Who is the best player in Michigan, I am
But who is the best player in Michigan...?

We are the best players in Michigan
We are the best players in Michigan
We are the best players in Michigan
We are the...

This is my only wish babe
To spend a night avec toi
To make my thoughts imaginaires
Whisper! Marianne Loup!
Let her! I want her running through my veins
I wanna feel intoxicated
Take me! Together with you!

Dancing! We’ll cross the bridge together babe
We’ll meet the sun that always shines
Take me! Together with you!

Dress me! This is my last repertoire
Between the tiers of the past
Kill me! Marianne Loup!
Kill me! Marianne Loup!
Track Name: Incorporeal
Just pretending not to care
I keep walking through the air
‘till I crash into your breathtaking face

My feet hit suddenly the ground
My heart falls in my stomach with a sound
And I stay still, quietly considering the case

Is it because I carry you always with me?
Or some god wants to remind me of my mistakes
Is it because your smell was poured all over me?
And I feel drunk each time I wonder what it takes to be alive

I wouldn’t see you anymore
Since I’ve seen you pass the invisible door
But you appeared in my eyes shocking slightly my mind

You were standing in a frame
You asked insidiously my name
And I smiled to your owner but I noticed he was blind

Is it because I carry you always with me?
Or some god wants to remind me of my mistakes
Is it because your smell was poured all over me?
And I feel drunk each time I wonder what it takes to be alive

It’s been a thousand years since you’ve gone
And for a thousand years I go on
Looking for an endless road to get me there

You thought that I would come there too
In your incorporeal world for two
‘cause that would be the perfect end for our divine affair

Is it because I carry you always with me?
Or some god wants to remind me of my mistakes
Is it because your smell was poured all over me?
And I feel drunk each time I wonder what it takes...
Track Name: Even Worse
I close my windows every morning
The curtains of my tiny room have always been black
Since I was born I’ve been in a state of mourning
I push the light of sun away, I never want it back
People keep describing me as gloomy
They think there is a problem in my mind and heart
I’m just a pretty, healthy, normal girl, poor me
So why do I try so hard to keep my soul and life apart?
I’m not as weird as you think, I’ m even worse!
I carry on my back the biggest guilt, just like a horse
The guilt of being human, not a spot
Of feeling different than you all, while I’m not!

My lovely little home is almost naked
There’s just a huge red pillow to keep it in my lap
There was a mirror too, but I decided to break it
Instead of watching me I find it easier to watch the coffee grains in my cup

Perhaps I wasn’t meant to change the world, but who is?
Who would negotiate their life more definitely than me?
Who would be ashamed enough and blame themself for all this?
And this person who says I’m useless; could it be that this person is me...?

I’m not as weird as you think, I’ m even worse!
I carry on my back the biggest guilt, just like a horse
The guilt of being human, not a spot
Of feeling different than you all, while I’m not!
Track Name: Anticipating
Anticipating that something
Boring pace
I feel collapsed all over the place
Trying to figure out the cause

Your look was promising me something
I had to know
How far my ego was ready to go
Should I resist or should I fall?

Tempt me just a little more
My mind is craving the art of sensation
Leave me lying on the floor
My heart is longing for some desperation

Making room for my new romance
Love and fear
Here is my hunt for a blossoming tear
My senses force me to let go

My mood was never so peculiar
Heat and cold
My morals struggle to be sold

Tempt me just a little more
My mind is craving the art of sensation
Leave me lying on the floor
My heart is longing for some desperation
Track Name: Parade
Anticipating that something
Boring pace
I feel collapsed all over the place
Trying to figure out the cause

Your look was promising me something
I had to know
How far my ego was ready to go
Should I resist or should I fall?

Tempt me just a little more
My mind is craving the art of sensation
Leave me lying on the floor
My heart is longing for some desperation

Making room for my new romance
Love and fear
Here is my hunt for a blossoming tear
My senses force me to let go

My mood was never so peculiar
Heat and cold
My morals struggle to be sold

Tempt me just a little more
My mind is craving the art of sensation
Leave me lying on the floor
My heart is longing for some desperation
Track Name: Buy Me
Sitting by the window
Looking at the wall
Trying to console myself

Orange on my curtains
Purple on my floor
Impossible to think of something else

And I see through the wall
The net that stops my fall
Your fingers grab my heart
But you don’t have it all…

You have to buy me
Oh, baby just buy me
I want you to try, try, try, try, try to buy me

Waiting for your signal
Fighting against the door
I fall in love with my worst fear

All you need to have me
Is to give a little more
More than just your breath in my ear

And I see through the wall
The net that stops my fall
Your fingers grab my heart
But you don’t have it all…

You have to buy me
Oh, baby just buy me
I want you to try, try, try, try, try to buy me
Track Name: Sphere in the Sky
Now I'm coming back
With memories of you
Your face and your voice alive
Reflect only truth
In front of your photo
I share only fears

Blank pages of a book
Written with tears
Flowers decorating you
Remind me of truth
In front of your new home
I bring only pain

I hear you, I hear you
A voice from the past
For moments and memories
I give a cry

I hear you, I hear you
Like a sphere in the sky
Rolling and rolling
Return upon me

Now I'm coming back
With memories of you
Your face and your voice alive
Reflect only truth
In front of your photo
I share only fears

I hear you, I hear you
A voice from the grave
For moments and memories
I give all my thoughts

I hear you, I hear you
Like a sphere in the sky
Rolling and taking me
Up to the sky

Now I'm coming back together with you
An eternal valse, invite me to dance
Like a sphere in the sky
Together we die
And roll
Track Name: Miles to Walk
She wakes up in the morning unable to speak
Her breath evaporates the life she’s chosen
The words she tries to swallow are still too thick
But soon her throat will be wide open

Growing old and getting tired was a piece of cake
Resisting to herself was a huge mistake
She lives where she stands, forgets the rest
She loved the East but she went West

Don’t be overwhelmed(Keep safe your pride)
Your dreams were false, your eyes were blind (Then look inside)
But you were given miles to walk (What for and why) (
) Miles to live and miles to die (As years go by...)
Pretend you’re brave, you’re strong
Prepare yourself to say goodbye...

She feels uninspired, she fights in vain
She starts to understand that kind of freedom
It seems to be a pleasure, not a pain
She doesn’t have to build another kingdom

Growing old and letting go is not a piece of cake
Trying to stop the time is a huge mistake
She lives where she stands, forgets the rest
She reaches East by heading West...

Don’t be overwhelmed(Keep safe your pride)
Your dreams were false, your eyes were blind (Then look inside)
But you were given miles to walk (What for and why?) (
) Miles to live and miles to die (As years go by...)
Pretend you’re brave, you’re strong
Prepare yourself to say goodbye...
Track Name: The Train Never Stops
This is the most amazing sequence of scenes
Looks like a silent movie, directed by the speed
Everything is spread out there dreadfully close, but doesn’t last
Every little moment belongs - already - in the past

While travelling so fast, the world is nothing but a blur
Yet the colors through the window frame have never been so bright
The meadows glow a shiny green, under a sun that’s bloody red
And after dark the deep blue shadows come to life

But the road is so much longer, and this train will never stop
And the landscape will be always left behind

While travelling so fast, the world is nothing but a blur
Yet the colors through the window frame have never been so bright
The meadows glow a shiny green, under a sun that’s bloody red
And after dark the deep blue shadows come to life

But the road is so much longer, and this train will never stop
And the landscape will be always left behind
