On the road at night
In a couple hours I might
Just know wich way I'm heading in
Looking for the paradise
I found a time behind her eyes
But now I can't stare beyond her eyelids

How far can I fall
When I used to feel so tall
And I woke to find my seconds passing by
Like landing on a plane
And it wasn't supposed to rain
And you can no longer afford the right to fly

Shining by the lake
A diamond that nobody can take
And the ones who know it all have their back against the wall
Every jump is just a chance to fall

Ringing lullaby
Moaning like a crippled butterfly
It's the same ground beneath your shoes
Doesn't matter which road you choose
At the end everyone's gonna lose

Just a memory
Of a child I used to be
Did he figured things could turn so wrong ?
I still got no way
To escape and run away
And finally change the ryhmes in that old song

Anxiety creeps in
Thoughts of the man I could have been
But I have to keep my hands on the wheel
My plans I always defer
Waiting for times which don't occur
Wishing that somehow time could stand still

Nourris par la vie parisienne et leurs expériences d'élèves du supérieur, les GBs chantent une musique virile, sans détour, et pleine, ils l'espèrent, de surprises... en mode mineur.
