shall we go now no motivation or purpose to move what may happen my creation with your help we'll call it art let us go then on vas creer un simple passage [we will create a simple passage] we go forgetting but never forget lifetimes we're passing we'll never regret inspired by nothing with no explanation like parling francais sans soustitres [frenglish: like speaking french without subtitles] when it is done with boldness of beauty and passionate speech what words will fit on the palate of the tongue i am human cannot be an excuse leave back your social grief let us go and let us shine it's time to leave back these foolish regrets social conforms and fears and blockades we met you may accept this you may just listen mais je parles francais sans soustitres [but i speak french without subtitles] wondering who will why shouldn't i be the one je vais gagner [i will win] il y'aura plus d'autres au passee [there will be no more in the past] after lifetimes i've achieved the final one maintenant c'est moi [right now it's me] j'irais jus qu'au fin du monde [i'll go all the way to the end of the world] entier [entire, meaning "whole world"] this time we go with all our passion we exist quite simply for purpose of self i am alone now but not without my self my actions will have no soustitres [..no subtitles] i'll make my way sans soustitres [..way without subtitles] i am the man sans soustitres [..man without subtitles] soustitres [subtitles]

Eb B Bb 05:14
talk to your friends about it i won't listen to you anymore too proud to laugh about it le pouvoir d'etres will be no more [the power to be will be no more] your mind is like a pad sitting on a mat unused it seldom with no pen pennance comes in many forms this time Eb B Bb repeats again lock up your door without it let it out within the cage must i fear that i'll destroy it what everything meant by being there a dark mass which appears to be me smothering the atmosphere until everything is gone crash course in love has got me killed a collision of the heart and the mind and the soul as for your fucking gore feed me more forever abhor i was not meant to see your face it was your twin i would embrace i could not be sure you said you would not find me here besides the pedalistic [meant pedastalistic?] truth in time we could let go ourselves to find ourselves where we once were one if you thought that i'd forget then you remember why shouldn't i you said let go let go ourselves to find ourselves where we once were one talk to your friends about it i won't listen to you anymore

Reign Song 04:32
when i couldn't find myself j'avais froid [i was cold] when i had to trust myself je pouvais pas [i could not] all these thoughts i pondered so often so useless i tried to be human but i'm only human and i don't mind the rain as long as it helps me grow and i i don't mind the pain as long as it helps me know i wanted to know that i couldn't find a way j'me disais [i told myself ca passerai [it would pass] plus rien pour moi [nothing more for me] moi [me] So I'll just go peacefully clinging on to my eternal chain all whilst the rain keeps falling on my head in my eternal solitude ca alors [how about that] sacre bleu [sacred blue] c'est triste et etrange dans ce grand lieu [it's sad and strange in this big place] why I cannot be so tout parce que le monde [all because the world] ce moques de moi [make fun of me] moi [me] and i don't mind the rain as long as it helps me grow and i i don't mind the pain as long as it helps me know peacefully in this mad world we call life all whilst the rain keeps falling on my head in my eternal solitude so i'll just go peacefully in this mad world we call life all whilst the rain keeps falling on my head in my eternal solitude

everytime i think about it desultory thoughts come in my head like scattered pictures in a parking lot after a week or so i return to some place that i recall c'est pas trops simple ni complex [it's not too simple or complex] time passes by while i question me at home interrogating my sensual memory for purpose of me (i believe) i wish i could remember the satin shining of you but i cannot place myself back i'll try again in some place where i'll be warm i did forget to mention that i could be the one if we had that marriage just remind me of your name again please one last request from the bar they said we must leave today i couldn't make this stuff up time passes by while i wait for you at home (i believe) i want to let my heart pour out in words but i don't know if i know enough words to write perhaps someday i'll recall when i'm not trying but i won't remember that i wanted to know it now infatuated by the thoughts and feelings for you

i can't stand the pain that i felt yesterday there was so much to say now it won't go away we've gotten so old all expect for the cold of the winter we met senses i can't forget can you speak my name without being ashamed the investment in you was a miserable coup de coeur [..crush] was too sincere and now you are not here can i hold back my tear til the next winter comes peut etre ca peut pas se faire [maybe it cannot be done] maybe this cold affair yeah it wasn't so fair for me how was it for you the winter air used to be clean maintenant c'est pourri [now it's rotten] et je peut pas m'enfuir [and i cannot escape] and i cannot be free. cannot will not let me be free i'm leaving but i'm not there's a girl in the world outside there's snow and to not be sad by this and the water from the fall i recall i recall to be loved

oh j'ai une envie [oh i have a want] je peut pas le dire mais j'espere que la melodie peut [i cannot say it but i hope that the melody can] je le pourrai le dire mais ca pourrai faire un peut peur [i could try to say it but it could be a little frightening] j'ai envies [i want] quelqun sache [someone to know] ce que je veut faire [what i want to do] depuit [ever since] que jetais un enfant [i was a child] j'ai l'idee [i have the idea] de ne pas faire peur aux oiseau [to not scare the birds] pour la simple raison quel m'apprene a voler [for the simple reason that they teach me to fly/steal] mais je pourrais le faire sans aile sans bateau [but i could do it without wing without boat] sans bateau [without boat] je volerais au point que la tomber serai bonne [i would fly/steal to the point that the fall would be good] ca passerais le temp [it would pass the time] la guitar acoustic et la guitare francaise et la guitar american electric se parle [the acoustic guitar and the french guitar and the american electric guitar talk to each other] et qu'est ce quel dise? [and what do they say?] elle se dise que ce con n'eut peut pas jouer pour sa vie [they say that this asshole can't play to save his life] il peut juste [he can just] dire des mensonge [tell lies] mentir pour ses mensonges [lie for his lies] il ment pour donner ses mensonge la vie [he lies to give his lies life] ca fait un peut peur que penser qu'un acteur peut mentir comme ca [it's a little scary that an actor can lie like that] a demain mon papier [see you tomorrow my paper] je te pardonerais [i will forgive you] je neux peuts pas le dire mais je peut le faire [i cannot say it but i can do it] comme je dits que je suis un enfant [like i say that i am a child] je suis un enfant [i am a child] j'irais voir demain [i will go see tomorrow] demain [tomorrow]

Cat's Cradle 02:54
what could this mean we all have some place to go to when the party's through and done but can't you see our whole lives have been summed up by some tied up messy strings oh no i'm by myself i shouldn't have shared so much so quickly i guess i'll go to the others who're forsaken not forseeing the final day i don't believe i'll have to go to work today the others they're all wrong 'cause we'll all die soon anyway even so i can't help but think that i'm wrong with nostradamus by my side don't you know? the world will end in '97 there's no point to run and hide don't leave me by myself i'd rather die fulfilled than foolish come and dance with this mess of man called human and it's time to have some fun i do believe i'll have some bacon with my eggs i'll relish in the bad stuff people put off for today so don't be scared enjoy the song while there's still time tell all your peeps you meet to quote me on this coolie rhyme even so i can't help but think that i'm wrong with nostradamus by my side don't you know? the world will end in '97 there's no point to run and hide don't leave me by myself i'd rather die fulfilled than foolish come and dance with this mess of man called human and it's time to have some fun no cat no cradle

about

In the interest of the shows MORTIFIED and RAWKWARDNESS, here is my very first demo I recorded 20 years ago for a project while I was at Oberlin College. It is Frenglich, seminally emo, and has never seen the public light of day, until now...
