Metro Expo I (2015)

1. What is going on ?   

What is going on ?                         
I can’t feel a thing.
But I’m still shaking
What is going on ?                    
The river now seems frozen
And the wind is dead
 
In isolation and perpetual mutism
Stands the answer to the suffered sadism
I must close the gates of the park
Avoid amusements
And put out the sparks

What is going on ?
Does this world get smaller
While the lights shut down
What is going on ?
Seasons look like winters
Sad as leaves on the ground

Mesmerized by an unreal messiah
To reconstruct an unexistant future
Forever stuck in boring hotel corridors
Banging like a madman on all the closed doors

What is going on ?

Why can’t I get no sleep ?

Smash the window
Confirm inutility

I can feel you hidden behind the window
I can feel your will to make me fall
When will I see you ?
When will I fight you ?
Is there one day I’ll be sure enough to know...

What is going on ?
I want you to tell me what is going wrong
I must be going insane, going insane   

Crossing the desert mustn’t be an affliction
It’s surely better than develop any addiction
I must take this road now
This is the right time, and I’ll finally find out

What is going on ?
I want you to tell me what have I done wrong
I must be going insane, going insane.

Confirm the inutility of the understudy’s wishes
Ignore all the gratitude from those who’ll create messes
No more ghosts to try to satisfy
They’ll come back haunting you the day you’ll die.

What is going on ?
I want you to tell me where did it go wrong
I’m sure I’m going insane, going insane.

From now, you’re mine
I steal your mind
No, I won’t be kind
This will be fine
This is just a beginning
This is just a beginning
You can start whining
Start whining !!

Nothing’s going on
I smashed the window, nothing’s going wrong
For sure, I’ll drive you insane
Drive you insane

This is just the beginning.

 

2.You’ve stolen millions

                                                                                                        
Seven days a week
I’ve undergone the sight of your hanging balls
The sight of you in sleeveless camisoles
I’ve made my way now
A good as it could ever really be
And never one day off

For years you’ve been weak
You were stupid up to tune down the song
And most of all, you were headstrong

You blew your last chance again years ago
And you kicked me out of your hell
I should’ve been thanking you and understand
No I can’t, now think by yourself

I can feel it
I can feel it coming

You’ve stolen millions
You’ve stolen my goal

When you turned the TV on
It was always for watching bad porn
Or even worse, German pop shows
Had so many plays, and no buffer memory
Between fits of anger

Your child now lives in a mirror
He’s got nowhere else to hide
You don’t care at all
Don’t care ‘bout that wasted time
I don’t care at all

 

 

3. Waiting for a war

I’m sitting here, watching the clock, its ticking
I have that feeling I’ve been here before                           
In a cave, I love to hide in
Silently waiting
Waiting for a war

I’m sitting here, watching children playing
I have that feeling I’ve been here before
In the cave, I love to hide in
Silently waiting
Waiting for a war

You’ll trip on the way out
And you will bleed tears
The eyes on the watch, the head in the helmet.
You’ll trip on the way out
And you will bleed tears
Eyes on the watch and head in the helmet !

In a cave, I love to hide in
Silently waiting
Waiting for a war

I’m sitting here, watching the sad remainings
I have that feeling I’ve seen this before
In a cave, I love to hide in
Silently waiting
Waiting for a war

Yet in the cave evil’s been walled in
I’m still waiting
Waiting for a war.

 

 

4. Out of sight             

I walk down the alleys of my private park                          
With a gun in my hand, ready to shoot those dogs who bark
And leave no mark
Then I’ll fix the holes they made in the fence
And prevent the next attack with bricks and sand
I’m right

Hey, can’t you see I’ve drawn an invisible line ?
And a bell would ring if someone’s walking by
So let’s spend this whole day
Remaining secret
And keep out of sight

All your science won’t affect me anymore
I decide that two plus three makes four
That’s my score
Lazy birds really can’t have wings
They’re just moving on broken strings
That I sawed
Yes I sawed ‘em

Hey, what’s this army of Elvis look alikes ?
They want to grab me and force to break the strike
It’s too late I’m afraid
I’ll remain secret
I keep out of sight
Yes, I’m right !

 

 

5. Nothing here’s real                      

I don’t wanna have fun
Out of this dream, nothing here’s real
Take me
So take me away

Out of this dream, nothing here’s real
Nothing
Out of this dream, nothing here’s real
Nothing here’s real

So take me away !!
Away !!

 

 

6. Come to me    

Behind the curtain a shadow lounges around
Gazing at me while I lie on the ground
I can’t explain why I just feel so lost
I want to touch, no matter what it costs

Would you come to me ?
Please come to me
I’ll let the sun shine through
So, will you come to me ?                            
Will you come to me ?
‘cos I won’t come to you

Will you lead me to the fire ?

When will you lead me to the fire ?

So, will you come to me ?
Please come to me
And let the sun shine through
So, will you come to me ?
Please come to me
‘cos I can’t come to you.

 

 

7. While you look away.

Have you seen that silicon doll ?
Will you spread her words ?
Have you filled that football poll                          
On the newspaper ?
Have you yet chosen your next car
Or the fast-food for tonight ?
May you be the next empty star
That we make shine bright

While you look away
You look away
You miss the real show
The screen of smoke is now so close
But the breath’s too short to blow
And do deny you’re compromized
It’s for your own well
While look away, you look away
You damp that stupid bell

Have you booked your own paradize ?
Where you’ll experiment being paralized
Wet T-shirts contests by the pool
And a purge on some bitches you fooled
Have you paid all your fees ?
Have you finished climbing on trees ?
Good ! Now, repeat after me : “Well, I’m free”.

Why do you look away ?
You look away
You miss the real show
The screen of smoke is now so close
But the breath’s too short to blow
Now do deny you’re compromized
It’s for your own well
While look away, you look away
Damp that stupid bell !

 

 

8. The Shore

My work here is done
Enough creepy memories
I have to leave you now that I used you
You have nothing left to give

You’ll feel empty
You’ll feel sorry
You’ll feel ugly
You’ll feel hazy
You’ll feel guilty
You’ll feel lonely
You’ll feel crazy
All this without me

Soon you will slowly reach the shore (Like for a goodbye sex, there will be nothing next)
Soon you will slowly reach the shore

Old and weak, you can barely speak
About the soul I’ve occupied
Can you feel the poisoned stream
Flowing out of your mind ?

Soon you will slowly reach the shore (Just like a goodbye sex, expect nothing next)
Soon you will slowly reach the shore
And you’ll be alone (off:Sucker !)

You’ll reach the shore

Confirm the inutility of the understudy’s wishes
Ignore all the gratitude from those who’ll create messes
No more ghosts to try to satisfy
They’ll come back haunting you the day you’ll die

 

 

9. Inertia      

The train of thoughts stopped rolling down the hill
By the power of inertia
Many walkers have been killed
So, bless the power of inertia

Out of the cave where evil’s buried
I can’t still be waiting anymore                   

The frozen river now gently flows
By the power of inertia
Winters pass, and seasons go
Bless the power of inertia

Don’t be scared of your last journey
Don’t be afraid
Wait no more

Nothingness will float above the wind
You’re so welcome, inertia
Nothingness still can’t be thinned
Despite the power of inertia

May this wheelchair stand the weight of an empty shell
And bring it to the lake
Hope for a sandy shore and draw there happy faces
They’ll come through the hazes of inertia

 

 

10. The Swan lullaby

I
I wish it never happened
But it happened anyway
I... I’m not sure this really happened

It’s been quite a long road
That I finally made
I just passed the last crossroad
It’s now straight ahead
Just follow the guiding light
And walk away

My eyes, remain open
For another while
I remind this pretty song
And give it a smile
Just follow the guiding light
And fly away

I waited my whole life for the Swan Lullaby
And the enchanted light tells me I feel alright
I feel fine

I... I wish it never happened

You, my sweet angel, are waiting for me
Please come to me
I’m ready to share my eternity
Please come to me
So my beliefs finally come true
I will come to you
I really cant’ wait to join you
I will come to you
I will come to you

The theme’s getting clear
That’s what I want to hear
I can figure it out, and wait for the shout : “You can fly”
I’m sure it will be worthy, and the ghosts will arrive
Sing this so pretty Swan Lullaby
‘cos I die... Yes I die

“You can fly...”
Good bye
