All Channels Off tracks

Lyrics

1. ALL CHANNELS OFF

I need some action
I wish I lost my faith
I'm full of white noise
I wish I knew who’s safe
There's no one here
Well the friends are gone
there’s just a TV
With all the programs off

Too late to think
About something else
All channels off

Each day I spend
I cherish as a grace
A handful of words
In-heart injection, just in case
I look around me
Haze has grown
I see that TV
With all the programs off

Too late to think
About something else
All channels off




2. LOADED

You wanna hurt me
And you don’t know why
You’re just frightened, lost & stubborn
You don’t want to think & dumb is your strength
You don’t want no cure cause gun is your health
So you keep it loaded

You have nothing to do here
You’re so scared, so angry
Violence and torture are rapture for vultures
And we don’t expect any respect
We’ve lost our rights cause you’ve spread lies

Poor in your land
Army was a chance
Money for your family
And respect in society
The things were easy
Then war exploded
Throwing you into sand and heat
So different from what you expected
So you keep it loaded

Your chief knows that you’re going to ask why
He knows your nightmares are made of blood and crimes
He gives credit to your evil wishes because they know what power and fear give...
They give what they need

The sand is silent as a grave
Dumb is a strength but nothing is safe
You’re looking for a redemption
But there’s nothing more but damnation
So you keep it loaded




3. SUBMARINE

This is how we feel
Looking for the deep
The siren’s ring for the silent dream

Leaving all we keep
This is the way to forgive
When tomorrow brings no more

One day we’ll dive away from here
One day we’ll dive into the black beneath
One day we’ll dive away from here
One day we’ll dive all in a submarine

We’ll leave where silent reigns
A place where light has left
Leaving the surface, leaving the race

Isolation
So-called redemption
I wanna dive away from sun




4. DUST AND RUST

Now you’re kissing the desert ground
You, who tried to turn me down
I see you walking miles of dust
It’s now your turn under the desert sun

You tried to turn me off, to turn me down
You played the tough, the rough, I’m pretty fine
And now the stand-off is over you walk aside
You can’t make a fool of me

You thought the world was turning around you
That we’ll follow whatever you do
I wrench myself free out of dust
But now my mouth is full of dust & rust

Now you walk alone
And all your dreams are gone
You know they’ll never come back




5. CRASH

Hey you
I’m out of there
So come on and smash the window
Sure it hurts but you know that it won’t kill you

So you could escape
Those white faces I can’t stand
And don’t be scared
I’ll be right beside you

Take a deep breath
This is your last chance
You’d better take it and
Rush out of here

You’d better take your chance

What would I do?
Is that a question or a prayer ?
My hands are hazy you got to do it on your own

Losing you
I see
You dive and disappear
Your hand is getting smaller
And night is swallowing your cries




6. DEAD LOSS

The air is cold
I’m lying on the ground
My eyes are closed
My head is spinning round
I hear some voices in a deep and dull rumble
I'm sick and tired and I don't want no trouble

Minutes seem like a lifetime
Pain and blood that'as all I feel
It's flowing cold under my skin

I try to yell but I can't make no call
I try to see but there's nothing at all
I’ve got my story and my fate is done
Sometimes a dead soul gets lost

I remember
The days I ruled my world
It seems so far away
And now I swallow mud
I wore a crown I was a king
I've lost my throne I'm now creeping

I try to yell but I can't make no call
I try to see but there's nothing at all
I’ve got my story and my fate is done
Sometimes a dead soul gets lost

A faceless loser like all of us afterall




7. THE WAIT

Lights are changing
So falls the day
Bodies are cruising
But never go away
The faces are tired
Under the dawn of lights
Glasses are empty
Kisses are bites

So come and wait
I’m soon leaving
Wait

Beyond the neon light
There must be something better
But there’s nowhere else in sight
That would make us feel stronger
I know I’ll run away from that
The day is close my friend
Why don’t we stay another night
I swear we’ll leave before the end

So come and wait
I’m soon leaving
Wait




8. ON THE RUN

My generation was a dream
A try of bliss a counterfeit
A time of making friends enemies
Surrounded by a wall of bricks
I tried to throw it all in spit
But I finally swallow it

I’m feeling like I keep on running through
But all I do is sink much more into
The ground is giving away so am I
I'm scared to look behind
Don't want to get back, back on tracks

I'm running for my life for my redemption
Cause I don't want to be caught on the run
I left the tracks I'll never reach the station
Cause I don't want to be caught on the run

I built a cross to hang my lies
And burried it away from people's sight
A second chance for a new life
Did I burry them deep enough?
I now see figures I had drowned in mud
In a secret place far and safe




9. WHISPER

you whisper at night the wolves at your door
Can your hear them yelling outside your window
Covering you with shame and blaming your sins
Shouting out the dirty shouting out to conceal their deeds

Whisper and dig the ground
Whisper until there's no sound
Whisper and dig the ground
Whisper until there's nothing more

Now they're gone the silence has come
Embraces you si tight as I switch off the light
I stand next to your bed, my time is my own
I sit and I wait our bodies turn to stone

Whisper cause nothing can change
Whisper cause nobody can help




10. 600 MILES

Maybe you could just play dead
And swear your heart has stopped beating
And then drive away

Eating asphalt, spitting dust out
In your mouth a taste of rust
And nothing left

Beating all your certitudes
Grab the wheel, don’t care for fools
And kiss your past goodbye

6 hundred miles rolling on your back
I guess you know what you do is right
No one beside you for your little ride
6 hundred miles rolling on your back

In my dreams I’m on the seat
And for that I just can’t sleep
I’m just a ghost

I ain’t waiting by the phone
I’d just like to know where you’ve gone
Gone for so long
