lyrics

Layin' on the sidewalk, awaken'd by your own voice
You think about the past, when you still had a choice
You try to reach a bottle, wrapped in yesterday's paper
You stumble then you fall, and you're left to wonder


How quick can things unravel
How shifty is the ground
How sad a joke can be
When you're the one playing the clown
How comfy is concrete
When you don't even want to stand
How fast you can get stuck in a dead end


There used to be a time when you could walk on the wire
When you could taste the sweetness, but now everything's gone sour
Before life was about more than waiting for its demise
Used to feel so strong but now you realize


How easy it is to steal
How hard it is to dance
How stupid you can feel
When you just wasted your last chance
How lonely life can be
When you can't count on a friend
How fast you can get stuck in a dead end


Better to reign in Hell than serve in Paradise
Cause those who got their wings aren't keen on sharing the prize
You wanted their kindness but all you get is their pity
And as you take the last beating, you close your eyes and see


How laughter can turn to cries
How even gold can turn to rust
How the phoenix will never rise
Leaving only ashes and dust
How cruel the world can seem
Where you're left to die in the rain
How fast you can get stuck in a dead end

about

Gentlemen Bastards Bois Colombes, France

L'amitié et la fête auraient pu suffire. Mais un jour de printemps 2010, les futurs Gentlemen Bastards se disent que ce Jam est celui de trop. Ils feront des chansons, leurs chansons. Ils seront un groupe.
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.
