about

At the waking threshold, dreams muddle up. It appears the dreamer is everybody… at the same time. Well, schyzophrenia isn't such a bad thing. At least we're never alone. And we're having so much fun together !

----

Sur le fil du réveil, les rêves s'embrouillent et s'estompent. L'identité du dormeur se trouble... La schizophrénie n'est pas une si mauvaise chose après tout! Au moins, nous ne sommes jamais seuls. Et plus on est de fous plus on rit !

lyrics

-- Therapy for the Unanimated and the Headless --

YOU
ARE
A
TOY!

Much dark, very silence
Such still, many peaceful Wow !

Hiding in this old blue box
He could never find me again
I'm tired, I'm drenched
In fear, in sweat
(We don’t sweat, moron…)
Oh no, there's steps

It's back, its feet stomping the ground
Light's overflowing, blinding my sight
Its grasp takes my breath away
(…and we don’t breathe)
My head starts to spin
But, like, for real

A red nose
A cream pie
This is time for you to die/smile
Some balloons
And big shoes
It seems I am it right now

GET OFF ME
(They all float down here)
LEAVE ME BE

(What am I?
What am I?
What am I this time?)

It's back, its feet stomping the ground
Light's overflowing, blinding my sight
Its grasp takes my breath away
My head starts to spin
What am I this time?

(What am I?
What am I?
What am I?
What?)

Why did this blue bitch bring me to life ?
She didn't even finish her fracking job
It's alive if it grows, it breathes, it eats
All I can do is think about the serenity she robbed

I'm a four-legged jolly lad
I'm rainbow-dressed, I'm horned -- that's pretty rad !
The grassland opened to me
The sky maybe, but…
(You still got arms you know ?)

I remember when I was a viking
My daily routine was freedom and drinking
Ok it did last only one hour
Will I ever get to live it some more ?
NO !

Too many spins, I'm gonna throw up
(Nope, no stomach)
What am I this... WHAT THE F-

Nuts ! Nuts !! Nuts !!! Nuts !!!!
I've got an unquenchable urge to get some-
-Spaaaaaace ! Spaaaaaace !
I found the one place where
I must be-
-Nuts ! Nuts ! It keeps on eluding me
But I'm not one to give up-
-Spaaaace ! Without a spaceship
Lacks paaaaaace
LEAVE ME IN PEACE

That's it ! A spaceship !
I need a spaceship !
I CRAVE FOR A SPACESHIP !

Why did this blue bitch bring me to life ?
She didn't even finish her fracking job
But it's allright now I've got a way out
I'm gonna retrieve the serenity she robbed

I know who you are...
We know who I am

In a white bottle smelling weird
An ounce of this, a bounce of that (licence poétique),
The magic sauce, shaken, not stirred
If it can fly, I'll chew a hat

Powered by the mixture
The atoms' fusion has begun
Inside the bottle once empty
Conciousness arises

In a spurt of life, it bounces
I'm ejected, I fly, I fall
Crap, not this sandbox again

*Piano!*

about

Lampray Lyon, France

We’re a… patchwork metal band (hard to be more precise about the genre since we’re not very sure ourselves), telling absurd stories that take their roots in science, video games, and fantastic literature.
