about

“Some birds are not meant to be caged, that's all. Their feathers are too bright, their songs too sweet and wild. So you let them go, or when you open the cage to feed them they somehow fly out past you. And the part of you that knows it was wrong to imprison them in the first place rejoices, but still, the place where you live is that much more drab and empty for their departure.”
- Stephen King, Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption: A Story from Different Seasons

Track Name: Adaptation
Life is short, I need to make the most of it.
Today is the first day of the rest of my life.

All I do is sit on my fat ass.
If my ass wasn't fat i'd be happier.
I wouldn't have to wear these shirts with the tails out all the time.
Like that's fooling anyone...Fat ass.
I should start jogging again.
Five miles a day.
Really do it this time.
Maybe rock climbing?
What do I need to do?
I need to fall in love.

I need to fall in love.
I need to have a girlfriend.

I need to read more, improve myself.
Just be real. Confident.
Isn't that what women are attracted to?
Men don't have to be attractive.
But that's not true, especially these days.
Almost as much pressure on men as there is on women these days.
Why should I be made to feel I have to apologize for my existence?
But i'll still be ugly though...
Nothing's gonna change that...

Shut up!
Adapt.

Maybe it's my brain chemistry?
Maybe that's what's wrong with me : bad chemistry.
All my problems and anxiety can be reduced to a chemical imbalance or some kind of misfiring synapses.
I need to get help for that.
But i'll still be ugly though...
Nothing's gonna change that...

Track Name: Careful Optimist
''You get what you deserve''.
It's an old saying.
One that survived the years, because it's true.
For the most part.
But not for everyone.
Some get more than they deserve.
Because they believe
they aren't like everyone else.
That the rules,
the ones people like me and you,
the people that work and struggle to live our lives,
just live,
don't apply to them.
That they can do anything
and live happily ever after,
while the rest of us suffer.

They do this from the shadows.
Shadows that we cast.
With our indifference.
With a pervasive lack of interest in anything that doesn't directly affect us,
we, in the here and now.
Or maybe it's just the shadow of weariness.
Of how tired we are,
struggling to claw our way back to a middle class that no longer exist,
because of those who take more than they deserve.
And they keep taking,
until all that's left for the rest of us
is a memory of how it used to be
before the corporations and the bottom line decided we didn't matter anymore.
But we do.
You and I,
the people of this city,
we still matter.

- Ben Urich, Daredevil Season 1, Episode 8.
Track Name: One Man Army At The Front Feat. Charlie Chaplin & Wade Anderson
I’m sorry,
but I don’t want to be an emperor,
that’s not my business.
I don’t want to rule or conquer anyone. (anyone)
I don’t want to rule or conquer anyone. (anyone)

I should like to help everyone if possible.
Jew, Gentile,
Black man, white.
We all want to help one another,
human beings are like that.
We want to live by each other’s happiness
not by each other’s misery.
We don’t want to hate and despise one another.
In this world there is room for everyone and the good earth is rich
and can provide for everyone.
The way of life can be free and beautiful,
free and beautiful,
but we have lost the way.
Greed has poisoned men’s souls,
has barricaded the world with hate,
has goose-stepped us into misery and bloodshed.
We have developed speed, but we have shut ourselves in.
Machinery that gives abundance has left us in want.
Our knowledge has made us cynical,
our cleverness, hard and unkind.
We think too much and feel too little.
More than machinery,
we need humanity.
More than cleverness,
we need kindness and gentleness.
Without these qualities life will be violent
and all will be lost....


To those who can hear me, I say :
''do not despair''.
''do not despair''.
''do not despair''.
The misery that is now upon us is but the passing of greed,
the bitterness of men who fear the way of human progress.
''do not despair''.
''do not despair''.
''do not despair''.
The hate of men will pass, and dictators die.
''do not despair''.
''do not despair''.
The power they took from the people will return to the people.
''do not despair''.
''do not despair''.
The power they took from the people will return to the people.
''do not despair''.
''do not despair''.
The power they took from the people will return to the people.
''do not despair''.
''do not despair''.
The power they took from the people will return to the people.
''do not despair''.
do not...

Soldiers!
Don’t give yourselves to brutes!
Men who despise you, enslave you!
Who regiment your lives!
Tell you what to do, what to think and what to feel!
Who drill you, diet you,
treat you like cattle,
use you as cannon fodder!
Don’t give yourselves to these unnatural men!
Machine men! Machine men!

Do you have
machine hearts?
Do you have
machine minds?
Do you have
machine hearts?
Do you have
machine minds?

You have to stop!
You are not machines!
You have to stop your
machine hearts!
You have to stop!
You are not machines!
You're not machines!
You are men!

You have the love of humanity in your hearts!
You don’t hate,
only the unloved hate,
the unloved and the unnatural.
Soldiers! Don’t fight for slavery! Fight for liberty!
In the 17th Chapter of St Luke it is written:
“the Kingdom of God is within man”
not one man nor a group of men,
but in all men!
In you!
You, the people have the power!
The power to create machines!
The power to create happiness!

You, the people, have the power!
To make this life free and beautiful!
To make this life a wonderful adventure!
Let us fight for a new world!
A decent world!
That will give men a chance to work,
that will give youth a future
and old age a security.
By the promise of these things,
brutes have risen to power!
But they lie!
They do not fulfil that promise.
They never will!

Do not despair.

Do you have have
machine hearts?
Do you have
machine minds?
Do you have
machine hearts?
Do you have
machine minds?

You have to stop!
You are not machines!
You have to stop your
machine hearts!
You have to stop!
You are not machines!
You're not machines!
You are men!

Dictators free themselves
but they enslave the people!
Now let us fight to fulfil that promise!
To do away with greed,
with hate and intolerance.
Let us fight for a world of reason.
Soldiers, let us all unite!

Track Name: La Mitrailleuse De Vie
Tout deux en cavale
Nous avons partagé
Nos souvenirs les plus douloureux
Et les plus sincères
Tout deux en cavale
Nous avons partagé

En rafale soirée après soirée
Elle m'a raconté les vices du quartier
Je n'aurais jamais cru
Que tant de gens pouvaient être
Si cruels, si tristes et méchants
Ce partage me mitrailla les entrailles

Sans fin, sans arrêt
Le rappel de ces mythes réels
Me donne foi en de jours meilleurs
Et le pire...c'est que j'y crois
J'y crois

Tout deux en cavale
Nous avons partagé
Nos souvenirs les plus douloureux
Et les plus sincères X2

Sans fin, sans arrêt
Le rappel de ces mythes réels
Me donne foi en de jours meilleurs
Et le pire...c'est que j'y crois
J'y crois
