about

This track was written for Audofanzine's "Compos inspirées" saison 11

lyrics

Stuck here, by the subway tracks
While the rumble slowly fades away
No thoughts to think, no fears to feel
My tainted soul has been torn apart

Waiting... (nothing to do but wait)
Waiting... (hanging out)
Waiting... (nothing to do but wait)
Waiting... (hanging out)
...in vain

Stood still, with a vacant look
Staring at the unseen
Hopeless, as waiting for something
Something that never comes

No more emotions, an empty vessel
In a shape of a man
No more regrets, a brand new illusion
Which is faking my mind

Waiting...

Il se tenait là, le regard froid, semblant attendre quelque chose qui ne venait pas. Sa présence ici paraissait incongrue tant son allure était hors du temps, figée.
Son ombre dansait sur les parois au passage des trains. Une nouvelle chorégraphie à chaque wagon. Elle passait d'une forme à l'autre, semblant prendre l'apparence de ses démons intérieurs.

Soudain, sans que rien ne laisse présager un quelconque changement d'attitude, il se leva, marcha doucement le long de la voie jusqu'à ne plus former qu'une ombre, puis, il disparut.

Sister, I was looking for you
Trying to heal my soul
Connect our spirits again
Just get off that train

No more emotions, an empty vessel
In a shape of a man
No more regrets, a brand new illusion
Which is faking my mind
