It's crossroads time and my feet are sore, I don't wanna think about what I came here for
My dreams are grey, my insides are dead, I'm staring at the void ahead
You had a choice but you threw it awayI was left with my voice, but nothing to say
An ice-cold emptiness is filling my head, I'm staring at the void ahead

The pain, the lies, the truth, the cries, the tears
Watching the life I had planned for myself disappear
The guilt, the shame, the dreams, the sweat, the fear
Seeing you shattering everything we held dear...

...and now I’m bleeding.

Say, say say / it all came out of the blue / one day we were fine, the next we were through / suddenly expelled / watching you undo / everything we held, everything that was true / didn’t see it coming / didn’t see you hurting / tried to apologize but it was too late / and then came the crying / the trying / denying / but i had to realize / that i’d lost my fate

Condemned to talk to a goddamn wall / useless to beg, it was useless to crawl / no answer as if you were dead / nothing but endless feedbacks in my head / the way you looked down on me / everyday the same / like breaking up over and over again / but I’ll live / I’ll breathe / and no one can take that away from me

The strenght, the force, the return of the pride Feeling again my blood pumping inside
The peace, the love, the hope, the will to live Finding at last the power to forgive
It's closure time and the sky is clear, I feel the pain inside starting to disappear
Feels somehow like peace of mind, feels like leaving the void behind
I’ve made my choice, and I’m walking away, found a use for my voice, said what I had to say Never again will I be so blind, forever I'm leaving the void behind...

Un genre de truc hybride. Effrayant. Qui se complaît dans des plaisirs pervers, comme partir d’une base métal / hip-hop qui fait jumper ta soeur et y rajouter des trucs impies… On parle de mélodies post-rock, de textes en français et en anglais, de breaks reggae, de beatdowns dissonants, d’un double chant rappé / hurlé / chanté et Dieu sait quoi encore. ... more
