Seven years after my album Next, here is a new album, with less Rock songs and more diverse pieces: Lack of Time.

Of course, you will find Rock songs, but also orchestral pieces and some electronic music. There are also more instrumental songs.

LACK OF TIME

LYRICS

Fire -- The flow of time -- Derrière la colline -- Astray -- The lightbearer -- Time to wake -- Hear my call

FIRE

I started off a revolution
and the fire burnt the skies
Should there be no one to move on
I'll stand alone on the front line
I'm afraid that our current foes
were allies for another cause
but the fire has to catch on
and we'll sacrifice our sons
but the fire has to catch on
and we'll sacrifice our sons

No matter that the fight is just
if we fail they will bury us
Our oath will be forever lost
with hope, will and combativeness
I wanna lead the revolution
that'll free us from our bonds
and make mistakes of our own
the next revolt will overcome
and make mistakes of our own
the next revolt will overcome

Keep dreaming,
it's the only thing
that makes you who you are
(and keep on fighting
because you must win this war)
Keep dreaming,
it's the only thing
that makes you who you are
(On to the war)

I saw injustice face to face
and felt the weight of oppression
I started gazing into space
and quickly drowned in oblivion
I'm now sure no help will come
no matter how much we pray
the only way to gain our freedom
is to make our stand and stay
the only way to gain our freedom
is to make our stand and stay

We won't be slaves we won't be dolls
we won't be victims anymore
We'll crush them under our soles
until they're left a weeping sore
and when their blood covers our lands
we'll get rid of dictatorship
The future will be in our hands
we'll hold our grip or let it slip
The future will be in our hands
we'll hold our grip or let it slip

Keep dreaming,
it's the only thing
that makes you who you are
(and keep on fighting
because you must win this war)
Keep dreaming,
it's the only thing
that makes you who you are
(On to the war)

THE FLOW OF TIME

A shroud of silence from the skies is coming down
down to the ground
and then it bends until it shatters our minds

The flow of time is made of slime to make us cry
whine like a child
it waits and waits and then it kills us in our prime

It's time
the rivers of our lives move and unwind
we're sad and deaf and mute and blind, confined
It's time
our doom lies way ahead of us in time
We'll find, remind

DERRIÈRE LA COLLINE
translation

On aimerait tous voir ce qu'il y a derrière la colline
Notre ADN nous pousse à bâtir sur les ruines
d'un monde hérité de Huxley et George Orwell
qui n'épargne que ceux qui se plient aux rituels

I'd like to think that wisdom is a winning game
that there is something bigger than fortune and fame
But the truth is nobody shares
Yes the truth is nobody cares

Die Hoffnung ist quasi der Strohhalm unserer Zeit
Wird die Menschheit in der Zukunft irgendwann gescheit?
Ich fürchte nur, ich kann’s nicht so optimistisch seh’n.
Die Technik schreitet fort, doch unser Geist bleibt steh’n.

ASTRAY

Not so long ago
I went away on a sad day
Decided that I couldn't stay
No longer will I go astray
Skies of blue and grey
flowers scattered along the way
these landscapes they far outweigh
all I could fathom anyway

If only I could fly
I would race throughout the sky
and allow myself to cry
thinking what I left behind
I am well aware
should I mention I don't care
that no god will ever ever dare
reveal themselves here or there

It all started with a sour smile
(but) I feel OK, I feel alright
Now it's time to get back on line
feel the wind close your eyes
It all started with a sour smile
(but) I feel OK, I feel alright
Time to fly to a higher sky
Come on come on come fly

Some will find it strange
one may need to keep out of range
noboby likes standing in the rain
nobody likes to feel the pain
Someday I'll excuse
all your misdeed and abuse
and if you ever make the news
I shall be nothing but amused

THE LIGHTBEARER

I am the snake
The favorite son
You know who I am
Don't you?

I am legion
I am the light
the lightbearer

TIME TO WAKE

The cities breathe and spit their unsuspecting populace
It's pretty clear nobody sees the threat is ominous
Endangered species die because of us
The cities live and breathe and keep on being oblivious

No time for a break, it's time to wake

War hawks, deploy your deadly toys without a second thought
Search and destroy, fully enjoy the profit that it brought

We know what's at stake, it's time to wake

Continents drift and spread the rift, rain forests turn to sand
Some day the ice will melt and floods will cover all the land
Fasten your seatbelt, watch, things go as planned
our sons will wonder how we could let it get out of hand

No more give and take, it's time to wake

HEAR MY CALL

I'll travel the world endlessly
to seek the tracks you left behind
I wanna touch the sky and sea
and find a little peace of mind

Hear my call
Come back to me or leave it all
I'm so alone
Please help me find back my way home

I'm no longer what I used to be
I messed up and I don't know why
I can't go back in time you see
I cannot erase and rewind

Hear my call
Come back to me or leave it all
I'm so alone
Please help me find back my way home

LYRICS TRANSLATION

Derrière la colline

BEYOND THE HILLS
original lyrics

We'd all like to see what's beyond the hills
Our DNA urges us to build over the ruins
of a world inherited from Huxley and George Orwell
a world that doesn't spare those who follow the rules

I'd like to think that wisdom is a winning game
that there is something bigger than fortune and fame
But the truth is nobody shares
Yes the truth is nobody cares

Hope is but a lifebuoy
Will mankind end up becoming clever?
I fear we shouldn't be optimistic
as technology improves while our mind stagnates
