Track Name: The Rivers King
La vie est belle au bord de l’eau...
Track Name: Broke Her Peter
Going to Manhattan, taking the Brooklyn Bridge
Going to see the docks, and see Gabart winning
Going back to Brooklyn, taking the Brooklyn Bridge

Going to Manhattan, taking the Brooklyn Bridge
Maybe take an ice-cream, ‘cause it’s sunday morning
Going back to Brooklyn, taking the Brooklyn Bridge

We are the giants birds
Mer, swell

Going to Manhattan, taking the Brooklyn Bridge
It’s black on the river, the sun is still setting
Going back to Brooklyn, taking the Brooklyn Bridge
Track Name: The Chaos
Whitney has a dream and she la la la, Whitney has a dream
She’s upstair with the minotaur, all together in the corridor
We, we can try, we, we can try again
Got to believe, got to believe, got to believe, is it true ?
Track Name: Is in Train
Maybe she is just a girl to know
Maybe she loves the god Zeus
Maybe she wants to live by her own
But maybe she’s interest in the power

Maybe she prefer the long island
With the sun, the birds and the ships
Maybe she would like to cross the sea
To run away from the god Zeus, and be free
Track Name: Year
I’ve got a fake fridge, and I want you to know
I’ve got a fake door, with no more wrist
I’ve got a fake floor, and that’s my ashtray
I’ve got a fake sink, but the water tastes good

So much trouble in my house
It’s getting dark and getting wet
So much trouble in my house
Please call for help !

Listen to my voice
Don’t understand your choice
Can you pick up clothes
You got to get dressed good for your mom !

I’ve got a fake bath, and a vacuum cleaner
I’ve got a fake table, looks good with my chair
I’ve got a fake furnace, no more vacuum cleaner
I’ve got a fake house, and it’s burning inside

So much trouble in my house
It’s getting dark and getting wet
So much trouble in my house
Please call for help !

Listen to my voice
Don’t understand your choice
Can you pick up some clothes
You got to get dressed good for your mom !
Track Name: In Shot
Come see with me, where they can hide
‘Cause the garden is super wide
And behind the branches, they’re not seeking for us, for us

We’re on our day, let’s take our time
This is my game, my only one
And for the next turn, I swear they won’t find us, find us

Riddles riddles

There is Ms Pickington
And everyday she cooks for her sons
Now she’s waiting for them
She starts to think « where are they ? »
Maybe missing in the park

So have you seen, some place to hide ?
And did you noticed all the disguises
To win the party, we need to buy for us, for us

Riddles riddles

So now she’s in the game
Hunting the children like a wolf
She’s angry and the kids are lame
Hope they will never get caught
Or they will regrets it forever
Track Name: The Mount
Le soleil se couchait et le vent hurlait
La tempête les poursuivait
Un nuage de fumée grise rampait derrière leur course
La poignée de malfrat s’enfuyait

Le tonnerre des sabots grondait
Leur cavale foudroyait l’horizon
Ils étaient exténués
Leurs montures s'essoufflaient

La catharsis approchait
Les formes s’estompaient
Ils riaient au désert mais leur fin approchait
Un vent chaud sifflait à leurs oreilles

Maintenant ils courent vers la broussaille
Et là ils suent dans la grisaille
Maintenant ils fuient de la tenaille
De la mitraille, et des balles !

Ils caltent vers la pénombre
Alors ils craignent leurs propres ombres
Mais avant que tout ne s’obombre
Ce sera la rencontre, fatale !
Track Name: Two
All my friends they are dead inside
Too much drinks and no money
Rats for food and no place to sleep
And I guess

3, 5, 6, 9 everybody’s just so freak
1, 7, 3, 4, everybody’s just so freak

Everybody is just so freak
They won’t listen to my story
Everybody’s just so freak
Just take a look at you

1, 4, 7, 9, everybody’s just so freak
1, 9, 6, 8, everybody’s just so freak

One day they will understand what I say And I’ll be gone at this moment
Cause the truth is that I’m dead inside Like all my friends in the bewkee
Track Name: You Alone Can
We don’t know what is he talking about
But he’s got something in his head, something in his head
We don’t know what is he talking about
But he’s got something in his head, something in his head

We don’t know what is he talking about
But he’s got something in his head, something in his head

We don’t know what is he talking about
But in his mind, all is clear, and all is right
Track Name: Us Save
The tree and you are the fruit of desire
The tree and you are the fruit

The tree and you are the fruit of desire
The tree and you are gone

Everything I write to be listened to (be listen)
Cold and lonely (cold and lonely)
I wonder if you’re here
Track Name: There Is
This is a song about a superhero named Matéo Aillet !

I’m a fighter bakk, gonna punch your face
Gonna hit the ground ‘cause, I’m a fighter bakk
Can you tell me more Matéo !
I’m a fighter bakk, gonna kick your ass
Gonna spread the blood ‘cause, I’m a fighter bakk

And now ladies and gentlemen let’s take a break, this is Advertising Time !
Ladies and gentlemen we’re back with Matéo Aillet !

I’m a fighter bakk, gonna punch your face
Looking for your death ‘cause, I’m a fighter bakk
What’s your objective Matéo ?
I’m a fighter bakk, gonna kick your ass
Looking for the Grail ‘cause, I’m a fighter bakk

This is Advertising Time !

Do you feel oppressed just like people in magazine ?
Don’t understand the question

Do you feel oppressed just like people in magazine ?
Can you repeat the question ?

Thank you Matéo and now let’s take a few moments for a young guitar player named Arnaud Mahu, come on !
Track Name: No Weather
She got to stay away
She got to say a way
She got to say a word
She got to save the world

But when the people from Berlin are torn apart

She got to stay away
She got to say a way
She got to say a word
She got to save the world

But when the people from Praha are so drunk
It’s bad, oh my god it’s bad

She got to stay away
She got to say a way
She got to say a word
She got to save the world

But when the people from Japan get bombed
It’s sad, oh my god it’s sad

She got to stay away
She got to say a way
She got to say a word
She got to save the world

But when the people from China are so poor

She got to stay away
She got to say a way
She got to say a word
She got to save the world

But when the people from New York are so cool
Everywhere in the world, people stayed away
Behind close doors and behind walls

That’s it
Track Name: At Lose
Everybody
Everybody wants to be at home
In the sofa
Yeah you know it
Yeah you want it

Everybody wants to be at home
Watching Simpsons and having good time
Everybody wants to be at home
Chilling with friends and having good time

Everybody
Everybody want to be at home
In the sofa
Yeah you know it
Yeah you want it
Track Name: Re - Find Milk
It’s a waste of time, to hang out
Sitting on that green grass, near the river
Hours of the past looking by
But when you stare at me like that

It’s a waste of time, but we sat
Then we have that long walk, now we’re old
Paris’ roofs are smoking, ‘keep silence
But when, you smile and start to dance

It’s a waste of time, but we laughed
We should not look back, and remind
We would see flowers, full of wine
But watch..

We are the giant birds,
Mer, swell

It’s a pleasant dream that we built
But now I‘m the past, far away day
It’s a sad vision, when love goes
But still I’ll keep these days alive
Track Name: Others Sovereigns
An american boy walking in paris
He thought he’ll have a bad day
Under the spell of the french capital
He plans to settle there
He has heard about midnight in Paris
He thoughts wow I’ll wait there

When the bells of midnight rang away
He was looking at the road
A dinosaur happy walking down the street
He told to him “come on boy”
He was now sixty millions years in the past
Dead crushed by a dinosaur
Track Name: Water Plus
Managua !
On the beach
Smoking a cigarette oh
Oh yeah, and having a good time
In South America yeah

You check his mind, you check his mind
You check his mind and find nothing in it !
You check his mind, you check his mind
You check his mind and find nothing in it !

Getting drunk
You know it
I got you baby

You check his mind, you check his mind
You check his mind and find nothing in it !

You check his mind, you check his mind
You check his mind and find nothing in it !
Track Name: Quick and Party
Come on and get a ride, Sally
We’re going to Crematie
Where the sun is bright, shiny
And you can hear the sea

There is butter for breakfast, Sally
Oyster and lemons for diner

You’ll be in love with everything
And have good time in the blue blue sea
But be careful of the jellyfish
And we’re sailing, heading to Crematie

I hope you like what I say, Sally
There is more to discover
Join us on the island, it’s easy
A boat is waiting for you

And we’re sailing, heading to Crematie
Track Name: Re - Coming

But you are not, you have to believe me
And if you are I’m already sorry
So please come back and be loved
