Track Name: White Fires
See the sun already high
We are running out of time
If you're not fast you will never survive

See the sunset ready to die
Still running out of time
And it's not water that reflects in your eyes
It's stone

If by the end you're alive
The whole world, is all yours
If by the end you're alive
It's all yours to take

See the white fires in the sky
Your time is running dry
And this light in the back of your eyes
It's stone

If by the end you're alive
The whole world, is all yours
If by the end you're alive
It's all yours to take

It's not water that reflects in your eyes

If by the end you're alive
The whole world, is all yours
If by the end you're alive
It's all yours to take
Track Name: Horizon
Je me perds dans les détails
Et prétends ne pas savoir
Qu'au travers des écrans
Le monde est moins décevant

Pour des années entières
A des années lumières
Redessiner, revivre
Abandonner l'avenir

J'ai contemplé le vide avec espoir
Déconnecté ma vie de mon histoire

Avant de tomber
Nous aurons vu l'horizon

De la lumière à l'ombre
J'avance et je succombe
Sans parole à tenir
Sans écho, sans souvenir

J'ai contemplé le vide avec espoir
Déconnecté ma vie de mon histoire

Avant de tomber
Nous aurons vu l'horizon

Monde à l'arrêt
Regarde, et disparaît
Astres et lueurs
Plus vivant que jamais
Je meurs

Avant de tomber
Nous aurons vu l'horizon
Track Name: Judging Hand
My eyes inside of everyone
I refuse to be blind
I decide if weak is the one
Who refuses to fight
When in need I spark the rumors
That will set things right
Do not think you can love another
0ut of your own mind.

We are men, we are men
I am the judging hand

My eyes inside of every mind
There is nothing I cannot find
When belief and reason collide
Bury it, let it die

We are men, we are men
I am the judging hand
Track Name: Cyclop
Le Cyclop me regarde
Et ses yeux brillent un peu
Immobile sous les arbres
Il m'observe un peu mieux

Pour oublier la ville
Où tu ne m'attends pas
La forêt comme exil

Toi tu perds la raison
Moi je n'arrive plus à suivre
Et si je ne suis pas encore fou
Je souhaite le devenir

Le cyclop te regarde
Et tes yeux brillent aussi
Quand tu vois en miroir
Le reflet de ta folie

Dis adieu à la ville
Tu n'y reviendras pas
La forêt nous unit

Toi tu perds la raison
Moi je n'arrive plus à suivre
Et si je ne suis pas encore fou
Je souhaite le devenir

Toi tu perds la raison
Moi je n'arrive plus à suivre
Et si je ne suis pas encore fou
Je souhaite le devenir

Niki oh reste là, ce que j'ai est à toi
Track Name: Control
Learned the lessons of an infinite life
Took me further out than ever before
What's on my mind is you've got to be lying
Control is so
Out of reach

Learned the lessons of an infinite life
Got me looking for more
It passed me by
Got on my mind a stream of infinite lies
Got all the time
Still control is so
Out of reach

Out of reach you were
Out of touch you're gone
I'd give up forever
for a second of before
I'd be wise and old
When I'm just tired and worn
Track Name: Stories In Reverse
I know how the city feels
Alone at night it never looks like this
Just give it a little time
If you're not real then how could you be mine
I know what you really fear
you were many, you were never here
Hear the voice inside your head:
«Love isn't real, you can kill instead»

You cut me open
Deep till I bleed
You cut me open
Did you hear me beg you «please»
You cut me open
Even took from me
The eyes I thought I'd use to see the world as you see

You don't know what you should really fear
To be forgotten, not to disappear
If you'd given it a little time
You'd have seen how real the feeling was
I tell stories in reverse
I could have learnt, expected worse
Hear the voice going on again:
«Love isn't real, you can kill instead»

You cut me open
Deep till I bleed
You cut me open
Did you hear me beg you «please»
You cut me open
Even took from me
The eyes I thought I'd use to see the world as you see

Is it over?
Are we even?

You cut me open
Deep till I bleed
You cut me open
Did you hear me beg you «please»
You cut me open
Even took from me
The eyes I thought I'd use to see the world as you see
Track Name: Les Angles Morts
A contre-sens et dans les angles morts
On se distingue, on ne se croise pas encore
Allez

En marge des manoeuvres nos chances s'amenuisent
Visages glacés aux lèvres qui sourient à peine

Et après tout
C'est l'hiver
Que nos forces nous lâchent
Que nos veines s'encrassent
Que nos forces nous lâchent

Les rues glacées ou filent nos volontés
La pluie salée
Mais qui donc en ressort entier ?

En marge des manoeuvres nos chances s'amenuisent
Presque vrai, presque
Il n'y aurait qu'à le dire

Et après tout
C'est l'hiver
Que nos forces nous lâchent
Que nos âmes s'encrassent
Que nos forces nous lâchent

A contre-sens et dans les angles morts
Si on s’arrête les autres gagnent encore
Track Name: En Silencio (feat. Helena Miquel)
Jamais je n'aurais cru pouvoir oublier
Maintenant je m'en rappelle à peine
Sur mes yeux se posent des milliers de mains aveugles
Le monde s'écroule pour un rien

Cerré mis ojos con aquel susurro
Metí tu voz en un cajón sin fondo
¿Quién habla de olvidar?
Deseo que encuentres el lugar

En silencio, en silencio
Sólo quiero recordar
En silencio

Le temps de savoir ce qu'on voulait
On avait détruit le peu qu'il nous restait
J'ai ouvert grand les bras aux secrets invisibles
Comme si plus rien n'existait

Guardé el recuerdo de saber quién era
En aquel pedazo de papel brillante
Sonrío sin hablar
¿Quién sabe callar sin olvidar?

En silencio, en silencio
Sólo quiero recordar
En silencio

Ya ves, ya ves
Si hay algo que olvidar
¿Qué más debo olvidar?

Je n'ai rien dit
Je n'ai rien dit
Mais je voulais m'en rappeler
Est-ce qu'on peut vraiment oublier ?
Track Name: Walls
Walls getting weaker
And all your skin getting thinner
You know
Your voice is getting sick
And it shows
Your skin getting thinner
You know

Walls are not standing
High enough
The water is flooding us all
Walls are not standing
High enough
The water

I don't get any signal at all
Your voice is getting lost and it's only noise now
The more I fight, the sooner I'll be gone
Long is the wait until I'm done

Walls are not standing
High enough
The water is flooding us all
Walls are not standing
High enough
The water

The water is tearing everything we ever owned
Track Name: Beyond Repair
Words often could have meant more
The world laughing at your door

It's all beyond, beyond repair

Lights taking over your heart
Walking out takes out your part

It's all beyond, beyond repair

What remains is standing tall
Who can tell if it will fall?

Is it all beyond, beyond repair?

It has to be more than we see
It used to not be hard for me
The climb is hard but the fall is free
The climb is hard but the fall is free

It has to be more than we see

I know nothing but I know this
The climb is hard but the fall is free
The climb is hard but the fall is free
Track Name: The Reckoning
Oh love I know I've been untrue
Oh love I know I've been untrue
To everything
You've been trying to teach me

Oh love I know we're on to something
Oh love I know we're on to something
So good, how I need to believe

Nobody's coming, no one will save us all
No one can tell you what you're standing for
Nothing inspires anyone anymore
I should be laughing, I'm not laughing at all
