Les Ami-e-s

for all these moment I've never had

for all this times that i should have spent
for all my friends that I should have seen
you make your choices and your compromises like you can
what is there left of your thoughts, that you had before?
I can never go back, still you think, that nothing have changed, that nothing is real
was is all just a game for you, was it all just a a game?
is it really me that have changed, is it really me the bore?
i am not asking you to live like i do, i am asking you to be honest
your apathy makes me sick, your t.v. makes me blind
give me a smile, spend some time
i can never go back, still you think
that nothing has changed that nothing is real
was it all just a game to you, was it all just a game
you stay where you are, accepting your lives
stay where you are

Allumettes

You, I am talking to you

You, you had a band you had everything
and you had peoples respect because of what you've done
and you, you use it, and you don't care about anyone
look at you now, see what you are like
look what you do, see how I react
You, you don't care, clearly there is no choice
not going to take your crap, just because you help us out

i will help my friends any time they need it
but understand me clearly, you are not one of them
look at you now, see what you are like
look what you do, see how I react
look at me, respect my choice
look at yourself, you will end up fucked up and alone
i am positive that i don't need to do what you do
i am positive that i don't need to step on other people
(i am positive that this scene can live without people like you)

Bobo$

wasted lands surrounded by holes in the ground
another eviction to leave an empty space
caterpillars digging and carving in muddy sands
split and divide, see what you will get
split and divide, see what you will get
build this crap, change this block
build this crap and let the yuppies decide
money stinks everywhere i go
i can see that you are putting it out to show
it's in your clothes, it's in your cars
it's in your food, it's in your attitude
between blocks and prisons, there is no difference
i never want to be a part of your world
i never want to be a part of your world
so get out of yours fucking yuppie-scum
so get out of yours fucking yuppie-scum

Citoyen

you function is to do your job, your job is to fill a function
your function is to protect rigid principles
you say you are just doing your job
you say you don't want to cause problems
but it's exactly what you mean to do
you step on other people who already have enough problems
you say i have to follow your laws and regulations
what kind of moral principle is it to follow your laws
another excuse to chase and suppress

cop in your heart, cop in your head
just looking for another excuse
just looking for another reason
to make sure
you are making sure, it's for your own safety
you are making sure, it's for everyone's safety
you say you are just doing your job
you say you don't want to cause problems
but it's exactly what you mean to do

Lost

tell me do you still believe in your ideas

is it really what you think, before you said like this
like that, believe in this and believe me
but you have changed, you don't believe in anything any more
you spoiled everything trust me
you always told me that you would be there
you always told me you would be there
shit you are not, you are lost
in your face, my old worn out shoes
you should wear life, not be worn out by it
i would never abandon my ideas like that
this rotten world will never feed on my struggles and ideas
feel the pressure, the system is against us
feel the pressure, see the fear in peoples eyes
some people would like to forget that we are here
they would like to push us down in normality
we should stay together and talk about ideas
talk abut our lives, avoiding to be alone
i will not be silent for anything or for anyone
affection and respect wont make me silent either
no regrets for those who got swallowed by the system
no regrets for those who got swallowed by the system
you're lost

Boy

when i pushed you i didn't mean to

my patience was lost again and i can be sorry a hundred times
my voice is far more dangerous than my hands
i was talking when i should have been listening to you
i continue to do whatever it was we where supposed to do together
i was acting when i should have been letting you finish
i never cared to count or to wait for a while
i was restless when i should have been biting my tongue
what was obvious to me is not obvious at all
the silence of your voice tell me that something is wrong
making sure never hurt anyone
constructing confidence is something we do together
communication and honesty is what we rely on
making sure is what we rely on

Talking to a wall

what a waste of words, wasted again

did you ever take the time to listen to yourself
i am wasting my words, i am talking to a wall
everyone wants to stop drinking, i wonder why
wanted to hear what you said, please say it again
wasted again, are you doing what you wanted
what did you say, i never understood the point
wanted to spend a good time with you
i am wasting my time, i am talking to a wall
we are all disillusioned
this society is covered in obscure rituals
for you to decide,
what are the rituals
you want to embrace
what do you want to embrace?

La Télé

How long did it take, before you accepted these lies
How long did it take, before your filter died?
How long since you've lived in this acceptance?
You live in acceptance, but you can feel that something is wrong
You live in acceptance
You will learn to be clever, you will learn all the trends
You will learn good morals, and how to have opinions
Something to talk about
How long since you've felt that something is wrong
How long since you've lived in this acceptance
Looking into a box, six hours a day
Are you relaxing or wasting your time
Looking into a box, manipulated truth
Are you accepting it now?
Are you relaxing or are you wasting your time
You will learn to be clever, you will learn all the trends
You will learn good morals, and how to have opinions


Avoid

I was trying to look you in the eyes
But you refuse to see what's in front of you
It seems to me that you are caught up
In a never-ending circle of running sheep
Did you ever stop to take a better look
I hear doors clicking, you lock yourself in
If you met my look, maybe you wouldn't be so scared
you wouldn't be so scared, no you wouldn't be so scared
I hear car doors clicking while I bike between you
You avoid contact, you avoid to smile
You look away and you nourish your fears
I can see your imaginary fear
Did you ever stop to take a better look
Avoid contact, avoid to smile
You look away and you nourish your fears
Did you ever stop to take a better look


Les Poubelles / Refusal

I try to live with as little as I can
There's a thousand people dying of hunger
There's a thousand kilos of food in the trash
I try to live doing what I can
Take what you want, take what you need
I'm not letting money dictate the rhythm of my life
Sorry I wont buy all the shit that you sell
I am sorry I can't approve of your business
Sorry I can't contribute to your exploiting stores
I am sorry but your fairtrade can't be serious
Take what you want, take what you need
I'm not letting money dictate the rhythm of my life
I'm trying to live doing what I ca
