Wandering Dreams


Rivers of silence in a dumb conversation
You may say I'm afraid of your love

Just for a moment I am free from all problems
Then again I'm groping, groping in the dark

I saw the wandering dreams
They didn't seem unreal
Frightned by their shadows
Waiting for no saviour
In the kingdom of illusion
Led by no Lord or ruler
They spent their time in peace
In endless tea parties

Seventh Wave


Say our lines
Can't tell the truth from the lies
I always feel so insecure

Reign of shadows
Here I'm wasting my time
So hard to live just like a man

Save your life
It'd be better to pack all your bags
Away from this wasted land

Guilty, I know I'm so guilty
'cause I can't hate these men
Godforsaken men
I'm tortured by hope
Visited by despair
And these animals affairs are not for me
Sadness is my only malady

Change your life
You're throwing your time away
So sad to act the same old play

In the bazaar of fantasy
I saw the demons made by God
And led to earth by a woman
You were so envious
Now we're together
I'm the victim of your acts

I have the right to be wrong
Don't want advice from now on
It's so sweet to loose control

Half Human Town


Weary shadows, moving under this old sun
Silent ghosts crawling on a rainy day
Playing songs of solitude
That I heard in the street today
Thinking about the things that I dreamt
When I used to dream

Needing oh so much the comfort
Of a friendly face
There is no communication
With the world outside my room
Thinking about the things that I dreamt
When I used to dream

I can see the world only through a veil of ashes
I'm the actor who decided to leave his stage
And now I just want to be forgotten
By the world...



My friend I'd like to play my song in front of you
I hope you'll listen carefully to my tunes
I'm shaking like a leaf singing my experience on this stage
I don't know how to find the right words to speak straight to your heart

All through the night I'll be honest with myself
And I'm not selling emotions to anyone
All through the night I'll just try to prove myself
Someone can sometimes hear my call

I really don't want to deceive you
Only the fools believe that a song can change the world
It's such a strange way to dabble in politics by the tunes
So I can't promise you any better world
I'll not tell you the things you have to do
My only advice is: never mind the ravens on the papers
Who never stop of writing ridiculous lies

I know that I can hardly win my game
And I know that hardly my voice can reach to your ears
My only hope is you pay attention
'cause silence hurts me much more then wrongs

I don't want to be another slave of swing
I can only listen to the rhythm of my heart
And nothing can change my mind
I don't care for the false smiles and false applause of tv people
I can't trust a word that they say
I have no time to lose for bleeding hearts
I found my way through anguish and tears.

Screaming Cassandra in the Desert


Light as a shadow I'll glide out of my picture
Advancing blindfold through the crossfire of your tongues

I'll be the hero who courts death
While a ride of shadows will fill my mind

I'll fight my war against all
After the defeat I will go to my exile

Another journey 'round my room
Maybe I'll find myself confiding in a stranger
And he will be bored with this tale without lies

Oh, sure I maybe lost the sight all those things
Which you call respect, never, never forget
Senses of guilt suggest the best moves to my enemies

Sometimes I feel like I couldn't dream anymore,
other times I'm prisoner of my day-dream
maybe "it all depend on sex"
and I'm entrapped by emotions

But you just won't hear my passion
Eyes lost in an invisible distance
And so I'm back to my picture
I'll become a recollection of familiar face

I'm safe only in my ivory tower
Locked in the dead man's dream

A living statue which once lived a life of his own...

Like the Wind


Some nights stars seem to drown in the sky
And we search in vain for a guiding light
Then we paint our pain with the darkest colours
And let the nightmares dwell our dreams
Alone in the realm of our rooms we dare to glance at our vanities

I often think that we don’t want avoid our frailties
Always searching for that guiding light
So events turn upside down our existence

...'till we are reduced to a shadow
a trembling spectre who begs for help
I know where all loves end...

Lumieres Dans La Nuit


In this life full of sorrow
I'm becoming a living martyr of my faith
Covered by the silence of remorse
I've reached the point of indolence
We're like the calm of dust…

No emotion can disturb me
They passed me by like the clouds
On the surface of a lake
As i meet people with no hope, no fear

Among the shadows of this Nosferatu life
I'm frightened to be frightened in front of this ordinary people
I can only read the frost in their minds
And I'm lost in the labyrinth of doubt

Spied by people who can't understand
What the hell I'm doing in this hopeless country
No escape from this sorrow

In this life full of sorrow
I'm becoming a living martyr of my faith
Covered by the silence o f remorse
I've reached the point of indolence
We're like the calm of dust....

No emotion can disturb me
They passed me by like the clouds
On the surface of a lake
As I meet people with no hope, no fear

In the city of the lights
We let the shadows rise from the ruins of our illusion
And our regret become tears on the past
Now I'm wondering what I'll do next
But it's like I'm living a kind of deja-vu…..

The Hiding Place


My hiding place: loneliness is our tireless ruler
It walks invisible at our side
It joins our words
It edges the margins of our eyelids
It lights with sadness the fires of our soul
We feed on its mysterious shadow
Its bewitcher shadow
Recognizing the absence of limits
For its inexplicable presence
Today I feel in my heart
A vague tenderness
I try to catch it and to bring into the light
I try to wring it from the darkness
To the depths
But I can't reach my goal
It slips from my hands
And it's shattered at the grounds of my thought

To One in Paradise


I saw your picture on the papers
You were the talk of the town
I heard about a dreadful crime
I found it hard to believe

I saw your picture on the TV
There was a man who looked like you
Someone I met long time before
Someone who was close to me

I read your words on the paper
And they didn’t mean much to me
And I couldn’t bear
That wild joy in your eyes

One day I saw you in the street
You were free at last
Your wife, a star with no light
No need of words between us

I really didn’t know who you were
I remember I thought
Here is a man who lives in a land
Ruled by a wrong sense of honour

And now you’re respectable in the eyes of your world
There was a strange light
In your eyes I have noticed before

Fool of the Town


A song no one can hear
Pure as a child
Glad to live
Even with those monsters of normality
Waving on a lake of placidity

Among the troubles
Of this mad roundabout
Withdrawn from this world
In trance while you're looking the film of your life

Wandering in the street of your town
You see busy little men
Running after their dreams
You have to bear cruel tricks
From their children
Their children

So strange, so different
So glad, so close to God

Lost every trace if respectability
Since from the cradle or during their lives
Patient witness in our comedy of errors
How cruel we are to these human beings
