Track Name: Quitter ceux qui étaient déjà partis
I'm just biding my time in this world
motionless, without emotions to spare
this poem has been a long time coming
and in my thoughts only emptiness

as my hand begins to move
the ink smears away
what was meant to be is already forgotten
the walls are closing in and I have nothing

an empty shell contemplating on existence
and the insignificance of it all
whatever the truth in these lies
there is no value in emotions

I rose up from my soft bed
only to fall on this concrete floor
I struggled to get up
only to fall down again

I forgot where I was headed
and I forgot where I came from
I didn't see anything meant for me
and I didn't see anything...

everyone and everything I had to leave behind
for the sake of my own sanity
if only to prolong this pointless existence
I choose to forget

I have only a memory left
a single connection to this universe
how to break these chains
and transcend above this pestilence

however torn I were to become
with you leaving before me
I would still see a glimmer of hope
emptiness has always been there for me

there I could see a sign of life
here but a drop of reality
is it better to carry death
or the burdens of existence

tragedy strikes at the hearts of the frail
and the strong-willed just walk by
coldness strikes at the heart of my soul
and the passion is taken over by apathy
fear of whatever the future holds for me
and I'm afraid to take another step
the anger towards the betrayal of my person
and I find my home forever in solitude

despite of it all, I am not ready
to leave those behind who came before
although I try to stand strong and tall
pale as death is my face

tavoittamattomiin hukkuneet
ovat nämä olemattomat tunteet
miksi edes yrittää eteenpäin
kaikki on jätetty taakse

ja taivas valuu mustaa
vuodet putoavat päälleni
paljon on taakkani kantaa
on matka vasta aluillaan
Track Name: S'éclipser
for ages I have watched
millions of souls passing by
I have seen the face of lies
and the truths screaming in captivity

I guide humanity into the waters
and as mankind plunders
I sit by the river
weeping for all that is lost

humanity is trailing steps backwards
competing for its own ending
as time keeps winding forward
they embrace their fate

I am a branch
cut from a tree of ash
by the men that I fed
and I fell into the waters
the lake guided me into a river
and by that river
I was found in the ocean

and this branch hit the rocks on the shore
waiting to be carried back into the sea
but the waves forced me inland
and I cracked
this lonely branch sat motionless
ja minä jäin leijumaan
vailla merkitystä

and all I now see
is trees sheltered by trees
the lonely guardians
lost their purpose
and I slept under this great grey sky
and I slept...

two thousand things I left behind and
two thousand things I never saw and
two thousand things were without me
Track Name: Et après... le néant
I've forgotten what life is like and I am drowning
I have not seen my purpose for years
I have been roaming forever
and will until the end of time

after all these years
I have nothing
after all is said
we become nothing

I wish I was as the ocean
always swept away by the winds
yet always where I was meant to be
never torn away from my purpose

I wish I had the strength
what's the purpose of carrying on
when all the promises of change
are as shallow as this reality

I am still roaming these lands
I only find struggle and chaos
there's never the certainty of home
only the uncertainty of life

I fall

like I had fallen before
yet I never hit the ground
I am floating
in this everlasting state

time cycles forever
I had been there before
this damned solitude
this cursed existence

I was not ready
to leave all this behind
to leave life

I never could
however I tried
however I struggled

I saw no light
no hope
no way out
