Track Name: Me Gusta Monkeys
ME GUSTA MONKEYS

This is the story of a boy

Who grew up really really fast

In a village, near a town

Yeah near a town, that's where he was

He used to work all day

While the sun was shining high

High above upon his neck

Yeah it was burning on his neck

And you could hear him sing

The songs he heard once in the fields

REFRAIN

Wo-oh-oh-oh-oh Lord let me go (Wo-oh-oh-oh-oh)

Wo-oh-oh-oh-oh I can't work no more (Wo-oh-oh-oh-oh)

Wo-oh-oh-oh-oh Lord let me go (Wo-oh-oh-oh-oh)

Oh Lord, I can't work no more (Wo-oh-oh-oh-oh)

One day his dad sent him in town

A place he'd never been or seen

Not used to traffic signs or lights

So you can read between the lines

He kept his head high up above

Looking right up at the sky

Nothing would bring him down today

At least that's what he used to say

He didn't see the car

That brought him right into his gra-ave

SOLO (couplet)

CODA

Eh, eh, eh [...]

Lord let me go, Lord let me go x5

Lord let me go

REFRAIN

So no one to sing in the fields

Only workers in the dust

Burning up from dawn till dusk

Missing that poor little boy's songs

One day his dad came up around

Starting to sing like his son

All workers followed full of joy

Singing and burning in the sun

And you could hear them sing

The songs they heard once in the fields

REFRAIN x2
Track Name: N°1
N°1

I just got up, nobody the-e-ere

To cheer me up, and who can tell

How long will these grey walls be my-y-y

My only sight, yeah my only sight

They've got ears and dozens of eyes

Another day, yeah I'll try

REFRAIN

And all the lights they turn green for me-e

I know this world it isn't real

But I always take for granted

All of the things my mind has cre-a-ted

Look I'm not as I see-e-em

Because you see, in my dreams

I am a king, you know watch me-e-e

The fanciest you've ever seen

I've heard that love's divine

But I see you're still not mine

REFRAIN

And all the lights they turn green for me-e

I know this world it isn't real

But I always take for granted

All of the things my mind has cre-a-ted

BRIDGE

We live in a world whe-e-e-e-ere

The elders have time to kill

And the young reasons to di-ie

In the end, it's the winner who wri-i-i-i-i-i-ites

It's the winner who writes, the sto-ory

You might think that I am crazy

I know it's hard to believe me

But things are not how they used to be-e-e

I'm the one said the lonely tree

They've got ears and dozens of eyes

Another day, yeah I'll try

REFRAIN

And all the lights they turn green for me-e

I know this world it isn't real

But I always take for granted

All of the things my mind has cre-a-teeed
Track Name: Gotta Get Out My Way
GOTTA GET OUT MY WAY

I know, You know, I won't come back no more

No fear, No doubt, I just gotta get out

Baby, Don't cry, I'm leaving you tonight

Just let me be, there's nothing here for me

I won't stay

I'm walking away

REFRAIN

I'm not coming back, coming back

Gotta get out my way (Gotta get out my way)

Gotta get out my way (Gotta get out my way)

Wo-o-o-oh (Wo-o-o-oh)

You can't stop me now (Wo-oh-oh)

Wo-o-o-oh (Wo-o-o-oh)

I'm not looking back (Wo-oh-oh)

Wo-o-o-oh (Wo-o-o-oh)

You can't pull me down (Wo-oh-oh)

Wo-o-o-oh (Wo-o-o-oh)

I'm not coming back (Wo-oh-oh)

Don't fight, No more, I'm walking out the door

Don't track me down, I don't want to be found

No time, No time, Yeah I've made up my mind

Just let me live, there's nothing here to grieve

I don't want to stay another day

I just wanna leave and walk away

I just wanna leave and walk away

REFRAIN

FORDIC STATION

Les étoiles filent

Lumières défilent

Et les ombres se faufilent

Par la fenêtre

De la voiture

Les panneaux passent à toute allure

Ma vie ne tient

Plus qu'à un fil

Je ne suis qu'un golem d'argile

Enfermée,

Insensée,

Je suis seule sous cette armure

REFRAIN

En panne de sens

Rien n'a de sens

Ma vie ne carbure qu'à l'idéal

Autour de moi

Tout se noie

Une nature morte, la beauté dans le mal

Tout autour change

Je reste figée

Je me perds dans mes pensées

Je ne m'a

-ppartiens plus

Sur mon coeur il a trop plu

Puis-je bouger ?

Trop fatiguée

C'est un cauchemar éveillé

Je ne suis

Plus personne

Dans mon esprit tout résonne

REFRAIN

BRIDGE

Paralysée dans mes pensées, éveillée, je veux dormir, je veux m'enfuir

Immobile idéal, je m'échappe du cauchemar du banal, monde fatal

SOLO

Sur la route

et sa houle

Dans mon siège je m'écroule

Un malêtre

dans le paraître

Je suis le groupe sans en être

La voiture roule

et je coule

Un jour je casserai le moule

C'est le vide

Dans ma tête

Et pourtant rien ne m'arrête
Track Name: 6/8

You, you put fairies into my eyes

When really it was dust

Got water in my lungs

Trying to swim beyond

Alone with the sharks

You did not dig in and break the crust

Around my burning heart

Soon you'll hear the drums

Raging on and on

Out of your sad act

REFRAIN

I'm grasping for air

In an ocean of lies

The theater of our lives

I wish someone was there

I won't drown under

I'm in trouble water

I won't ever put myself on top

But I'll stop pushing you up

Once the puppeteer

Now I cut the strings

I'm gonna go and be free

Even if it means I have to fall

My path has not to be traced

I won't walk no more

I won't be crawling

I am in a race

REFRAIN

Alone in the crowd I feel the knife

Your thumbs keep on pushing harder

In a deadly silence now

I come back to life

Under pressure I won't burst

My body might give up once or twice

My face might put on a smile

But it's just a clown

It is of no trust

Under the mask a soldier

REFRAIN

BRIDGE

Oh~ There's a weight, over my head

Hand around my neck

Under water, cannot see

Under pressure, cannot breathe

SOLO

CODA

Now you hear the sound of the drums rage out and x4

Now you hear the sound of the drums rage out and run
Track Name: Celui-là
CELUI-LA

I'm not so sure where this will lead

Still, there is something

I know I wouldn't want to be

Anywhere else dear

PREREFRAIN

Come on (Come one)

Come down (Come down)

The road (The road)

There's no need to cry

We'll soon be alright

No rush to arrive

Before the sunlight

Where are we going (Wo-oh)

I don't know my dear (Wo-oh)

Stop asking (Wo-oh)

Worrying (Wo-oh)

Some questions don't have (Wo-oh)

Answers already (Wo-oh)

But trust me and just (Wo-oh)

Come away with me (Wo-oh)

REFRAIN

This is a road to nowhere

Come on I'll take you there

We'll run through miles and miles

Follow me till daylight

We've only got the night

Darling don't be scared

I'll take you there

And even though we lose our minds

Don't worry we'll be just fine

No need to watch the time

I won't be afraid, don't run away

This is a long way

Give me a reason to go back home

Till then we will roam

PREREFRAIN

Come on (Come one)

Come down (Come down)

The road (The road)

There's no need to cry

We'll soon be alright

No rush to arrive

Before the sunlight

Where are we going (Wo-oh)

You don't care my dear (Wo-oh)

We are simply (Wo-oh)

Driving (Wo-oh)

Some questions don't have (Wo-oh)

Answers already (Wo-oh)

But who cares anymore (Wo-oh)

About knowing (Wo-oh)

REFRAIN

This is a road to nowhere

Come on I'll take you there

We'll run through miles and miles

Stop playing in the playground

We've only got the night

Don't be scared

I'll take you there

And even though we lose our minds

Don't worry we'll be just fine

No need to watch the time

BRIDGE

Time to go rogue

No light on the road

I'll take you there

SOLO

PREREFRAIN

Come on (Come one)

Come down (Come down)

The road (The road)

There's no need to cry

We'll soon be alright

No rush to arrive

You can have what you want, what you wish, what you greed

But nothing really matters 'cause it's everything that you need

You don't seem to understand you're missing something

Someone around, human warmth is clearly out of the scene

No one's in sight to see what you don't have to give

No more faces around to watch, the mirrors make you live

No eyes, just you, they've left you for some lonely days

No use for your pearls if they don't shine bright in others' eyes

REFRAIN

You push them down

Only to realize

That high up above

You're left alone with a crown

You won't bow

Consumed all by your pride

Can't touch them with a glove

Your kingdom is a ghost town

Don't you ever have enough, don't you ever be

A materialistic one, you have, well therefore you exist

You thought you could shut the hunger still screaming loud

To have or not to have, you chose the throne over the crowd

You can't have what you want, what you wish, what you greed

'Cause all that really matters is now long gone and out of reach

You don't see that between you and me there's a breach

Your stone cold heart might in fact hide that behind the mask you bleed

REFRAIN

BRIDGE

You can't be happy

If you haven't felt sad

To rise in flames you'll

Have to start from the ash

You'll be hurt again

You'll fall back on your knees

But after some time then

You'll use it as your fuel

SOLO

You gotta get outta here, try to live again

Your castle of loneliness, it might have kept you 'way from pain

But you'll soon realize that from this life there's no gain

Move on move out, they're waiting, it was not your life back then

REFRAIN

Don't let them down

You will finally see

There's higher than above

The sun so rose in your town

Don't give up

You can finally be

So take off your glove

A new world lies ahead now

They'll push you up

Only to let you down...

The sun goes down

I am leaving town

Need to speak tonight

I need to go tonight

The moon's rising

It's all quiet and still

No more clouds in the sky

I'm coming back to life

REFRAIN

There's something strange, about the night

The moon and its li-i-i-i-ight

I'm howling it's, you I might bite

Getting ready, for another fight

BRIDGE

No eyes above me

No use lying about it

I can think, I can see

Clearly there's no boundary

No more roads, no more paths

To follow or to track without

Any limit, do the math

Nothing to live up to in the dark

No more shadows

Following me 'round

No double, I am one

No doubt, I am free

Not afraid to feel

I won't be judged, I'm done

Not bound to solid ground

Away from your sorrows

REFRAIN

BRIDGE

If I should, if I would

In the day I cannot choose

No more rules, no more lies

Speak the words I kept inside

Feeling good, I'm feeling strong

It feels right and it's so wrong

Darkness is a lonely friend

It will stay until the end

I'm feeling alive

I'm where I'm supposed to be

I can hide in plain sight

Finally I can see

True natures come out

No one to shut it down

We still have time till dawn

The moon is not yet gone

REFRAIN x2

There's something strange, about the night

The moon and its li-i-i-i-ight

I'm howling it's, you I might bite

Getting ready, for another fight

I'm not the same, I'm changing sight

The moon and its li-i-i-i-ight

I'm howling it's, my own dark side

Getting ready for another ride

BRIDGE

Oh~

REFRAIN

I'm not the same, I'm changing sight

The moon and its li-i-i-i-ight

I'm howling it's, you I might bite

Getting ready for another fight
