1. Les Temps Changent (3:27)
Les temps changent. Notre histoire se termine, nos chemins se séparent et la vie reprend son cours tranquillement. Je m'envole enfin librement. La main fracturée par un bris de confiance, la guérison entravée par la méfiance, je prends mes distances. Sagement, j'avance lentement mais sûrement, marchant d'un regard méfiant. Ça recommence encore et encore et encore. Notre conflit s'éternise. Chaque fois, je perds la maîtrise. Ça recommence encore et encore et encore. Tes mots me découragent. Assez, je n'en peux plus. Je n'abandonnerai jamais. Nos liens se sont effacés. La vérité se digère avec difficulté. Sans pitié, j'ai l'appétit pour la destruction. Je n'abandonnerai jamais. Malgré la colère et la peine, les murs troués et les semaines, une partie de toi résidera toujours en moi. Nous avons grandi ensemble. C'est la fin d'un si beau récit. Dommage qu'il en soit ainsi. Ces belles années demeureront éternelles. La main fracturée par un bris de confiance, la guérison entravée par la méfiance, je prends mes distances. Sagement, j'avance lentement mais sûrement, marchant d'un regard méfiant. Ça recommence encore et encore et encore. Notre conflit s'éternise. Chaque fois, je perds la maîtrise. Ça recommence encore et encore et encore. Tes mots me découragent. Assez, je n'en peux plus.
2. Day of Mourning (3:02)
A startling phone call led to a night of little sleep, Counting blessings
instead of sheep. We gathered the next morning. Renewing a bond weakened by
years of separation and though our worlds had slowly drifted apart. The early
memories we shared still remained timeless in our hearts. There was a time when
we closely followed each others footsteps, dreaming of endless summers and
becoming drummers. Those days are gone. We mourn the loss of a childhood friend
rapped in a mans fading intellect. So long, let these tears wash away the
blood on your hands. So long, youre forgiven for easing her pain. I can still
picture the apartment where it took place. We used to play hours downstairs,
beating drums and hitting snares. Embrace those times to endure. That day felt
like your funeral. Until we meet again, you will never be forgotten.
3. MVP (3:24)
Welcome to my team.
The game is on.
Play by the rules or you're gone.
I'm aiming for gold.

I'll pursue my goal and see how our night will finally unfold.
Stay cold or you'll get caught in this deceiving old game.
Extinguish that flame.

The road drew my muse away from me.
I gave up on us to live free.

Cursed with the appetite of a shark.
I'm looking out for the catch of the day.
All it takes is a clever remark and a smile to lure my prey.
Looks can betray.

I must fill the void.
Your bedroom, I enjoyed.
Please dont take this wrong.
For you, I wrote this song.
So long.

Oh yeah!
The game is on.
Play by the rules or you're gone.
Make way for this years MVP.

Oh, baby don't you know this partys picking up.
You be a classy looking hoe.
Girl, I promise that I'll be gentle and take it slow.
Put this thick member in your mouth and start to blow.

I'm the smouldering underdog you all dread,
plaguing your dreams with visions of the dead.
A violent pervert;
psycho-narcissistic scum of loathsome nature.

One more shot then let me aim for your weak spot.
One last key, now lets hit the parking lot.
You don't know my name, you don't know my game.
Ecstasy won't ever be the same.

It's hunting season.
An unsuspecting victim is in my sight.
Despite our slight conversation,
tonight we'll dance and end it in romance.
4. All for Nothing (3:14)
All for nothing. Getting better was just an option I didn't believe in. Fuck no! Until you came and lured me with a blurred vision of hope, my impenetrable mind was practically to be declared dead. For so many months, I wandered in the cold abyss of your confusion. I anticipated that when I came back you'd finally be mine. But every time, you disappointed me with distant silence. I saw someone for whom I would have kept my pledge. La montagne russe que je suis n'est que le fruit de ton indécision. L'homme qui tenait à renaître est mort née. De ses cendres, la calamité jaillira pour te tourmenter. Je t'ai abandonné. All for nothing. Getting better was just an option I didn't believe in. Fuck no! Until you came and lured me with a blurred vision of hope, my impenetrable mind was practically to be declared dead. For so many months, I wandered in the cold abyss of your confusion.
5. Eulogy (3:28)
The embittered smell emanating from your lifeless form is as bitter as the reeking lies I've heard and trusted. From now on, the only bed you'll be able to roll on will be within mother earth's guts. As I'm lying down with closed eyes, I think of what you made me commit. My fingertips caress your feminine curve for one last memorable moment. This is a eulogy for my sweetheart. Nothing will break us apart. The mark around your neck is so seducing. This is a eulogy for my sweetheart. Nothing will break us apart. The mark around your neck is so seducing. Your disfigured face is marked by its agonizing grin. As I hung up the phone to report my sin, I shed one last tear for our memories, kissed your pale lips and took my gun.
6. Made of Glass (3:16)
It merely took a year for your pledge to disappear. Farewell friend, our ties no longer mend. This tale has come to an end. It wasn't meant to last. You came and left so fast. Your promises are part of the past. You said we'd speak again, but that moment never came. Silence is a close cousin of shame. A man of glass carries the flame. Burn. May the desert bring you comfort. Burn. Enjoy your precious game of cowboys and indians. I hope it's what you envisioned. Black eyes and secret trips slowly revealed your true nature. I should have known better. A new dawn has come. The good times we had turned to bitter souvenirs. The rest of us will persevere. It wasn't meant to last. You came and left so fast. Your promises are part of the past. Carry on. We've grown stronger with your sudden departure. More determined than ever, we'll carry on. We've grown stronger with your sudden departure. Dedicated, we carry on.
7. Black Lungs (3:01)
My thoughts are turning black. Here comes a panic attack. Every day is a struggle to stay on track. I've had enough of being consumed by your poison. These are my words of distress. I must confess. It's getting harder to see through a thick layer of green smoke. The deeper I inhale, the harder I choke. I'm a slave to the habit, slowly becoming a zombie. The higher I go, the bigger the fall. The closer we get, the less I need you all. The higher I go, the bigger the fall. It's time to stand tall. Take control. From summer nights at the park to laying low in the dark, temptation led to isolation. I'm gasping for air, visiting despair. My thoughts are turning black. Here comes a panic attack. Every day is a struggle to stay on track. I've had enough of being consumed by your poison.
8. Diva of Disgust (3:25)
Like a drug, you asphyxiated me with fulfilment. Your eyes, like needles, fed my brain with addictive enhancement. Are you that long awaited ray of hope or is this another twisted side of the same tale? You traded your wings for horns and I replaced you with a sharper solution. I went deeper than you ever will. Your reign didn't last for long. You were wrong all along. The diva took her outfit off. An egocentric drama queen now stood in front of my eyes. You traded your wings for horns and I replaced you with a sharper solution. I went deeper than you ever will. You lost your grasp once and for all. Karma will get you back. I won't hold any grudges. She simply vanished and if that goody Christian girl was right. Karma will get her back
9. Entre Le Bien Et Le Mal (3:56)
ous ma carapace se cache un enfant, parfois craintif mais souvent insouciant. Plus le temps me glisse entre les doigts, plus ma foi se livre au désarroi. La loi du plus fort ne dictera pas mon sort. Œil pour Œil, dent pour dent. Je combats le mal par le mal. Prenez garde. Nul ne m'arrêtera, ce choix est ma voie. Loin des conventions, je garde la raison. Tous ceux qui oseront m'opposer seront soigneusement décapités dans l'imaginaire de mes pensées les plus malsaines. À mi-chemin entre le mal et le bien, un gentil regard recèle un cauchemar. Tous ceux qui oseront dénigrer le rêve d'un homme par simple cruauté seront châtiés par l'immensité de ma rage. Prenez garde. Attiré doucement par le vice, je m'approche lentement du précipice. Dorénavant, vous me laisserez tous indifférent. Œil pour Œil, dent pour dent. Je combats le mal par le mal. Ma désensibilisation à la bêtise humaine fut lente mais nécessaire. Je regarde désormais tout droit devant. Vos paroles ne m'atteignent plus.
10. Sleepless (4:46)
Another morning when I feel more rotten than alive. The reflection in the mirror across the room shows that I'm just another useless being, head down in a tobacco haze with a bottle of broken dreams in my hand. I wonder if I was just gone, would anyone miss me?
