HER MAJESTY POVERTY

LYRICS

Popular -- Chacun défend son coin -- Boomerang -- Asleep -- Try again
Chrysalide -- Wasted prayers -- Forget my soul -- This moment

Driving around and go and speak with everyone we meet.
People around the world will take anything we can give.

We are so popular, popular, we are popular wannabes.
We are so popular, popular, we are popular wannabes.

We are the ones to make you smile and jump with all the crowd.
On the way home you'll still be singing in the underground.

We are so popular, popular, we are popular wannabes.
We are so popular, popular, we are popular wannabes.

Nothing can stop the passion that we put into our songs.
Money and fame and girls and champagne... the future's bright ahead!

We are so popular, popular, we are popular wannabes.
We are so popular, popular, we are popular wannabes.

CHACUN DÉFEND SON COIN
translation

J'ai cherché toute ma vie à être bien et en phase
avec mes amis, ma famille et tous les gens que je croise,
pour un résultat médiocre, il faut bien l'avouer,
La vie en société n'est pas ma tasse de thé.

J'ai parcouru le monde, j'ai appris mille et une choses
et les atermoiements d'autrui, j'en ai eu plus que ma dose,
des croissants, des croix, des faux cils et des marteaux,
Chacun défend son coin et moi je compte les points !

BOOMERANG

Our sound is going forth and back, like a boomerang!

ASLEEP

The thoughts I had when I saw you,
lying in this big white room,
made me shade a tear, a tear,
I haven't done that in a year.
There's people in the corridor,
walking by the opened door,
I see them but they don't exist,
I just can't let go off your wrist,

Will you wake, don't leave me here,
That's your breath I wanna hear,
Will you wake, don't leave me here.
Will you wake, don't leave me here,
That's your breath I wanna hear,
Will you wake, don't leave me here.

The lack of someone is just worse
than anything I've known before,
if I could ward off that evil curse
I'd live with you forever more.
It's funny how things become clear,
when you lose what you stand for,
don't you fade away my dear,
I cannot take it anymore.

Will you wake, don't leave me here,
That's your breath I wanna hear,
Will you wake, don't leave me here.
Will you wake, don't leave me here,
That's your breath I wanna hear,
Will you wake, don't leave me here.

TRY AGAIN

Just take the time to spawn a rhyme
to make the words shine and come alive.
You'll never find and never mind
the way that leads to this place of mine
A clever animal, does it walk, does it crawl?
And when I saw the jaw, I stared in awe,
If you don't understand, just ask a friend
to take you somewhere else and try again.

What is my crime? Show me the sign,
and I'll be king in the land of lies.
Don't say a word, follow the herd,
Freedom's absurd if it's not deserved.
Eternal slavery of social boundaries,
don't think you're on the loose,
there is no truce.
If you don't understand, just ask a friend
to take you somewhere else and try again.

CHRYSALIDE
translation

C'est pour ma culture musicale que j'ai ouvert la boîte de Pandore,
des trucs qui traînaient sur la toile, à la fin j'en demandais encore,
je me suis plongé dans tout un monde dont je ne connais que la surface,
j'ai entendu des trucs immondes mais surtout, j'ai pris quelques claques !

Des beats qui tapent, des mots qui frappent, gros !
Des beats qui tapent, des mots qui frappent, gros !

Alors je me suis dit pourquoi moi j'essaierais pas de m'y coller,
et si je me plante, qu'est-ce que ça fait, ce sera mauvais et puis voilà.
Faut que la musique dans ma peau éclose et se métamorphose,
je me dis qu'il est grand temps que j'ose vouloir composer d'autres choses.

Des beats qui tapent, des mots qui frappent, gros !
Des beats qui tapent, des mots qui frappent, gros !

Je ne veux que jeter les bases d'une nouvelle phase,
passer un nouveau cap, lancer un son qui tape,
faire la démonstration que quelque chose de neuf
se passe dans mon appart' à côté de mes grattes.
Vas-y lance-toi mon gars, le monde t'attendra pas!
Vas-y lance-toi mon gars, le monde t'attendra pas!

J'aimerais que mes synapses se connectent et s'éclatent
et puissent trouver leur place dans le rock et le rap
pour que les mots du flow se noient dans les accords
et se mélangent alors au rythme qui s'échappe.
Vas-y lance-toi mon gars, le monde t'attendra pas!
Vas-y lance-toi mon gars, le monde t'attendra pas!

Les références de mes oreilles sont pas I AM ou NTM,
ce serait plutôt la planète Rock qui me convainc qu'elle est suprême,
pourtant j'écoute aussi leurs mots et mes tympans à leur tempo
se déchaînent, s'agitent et s'excitent comme quand ils kiffent les riffs d'Hendrix

Des beats qui tapent, des mots qui frappent, gros !
Des beats qui tapent, des mots qui frappent, gros !

Le nouveau siècle a apporté des sons qui vont nous conforter
dans l'idée qu'il faut innover pour réussir à emporter
le suffrage d'un auditoire gavé à grand renfort de nouvelles stars
qui accaparent tous les pouvoirs... aurais-je ma place à l'abreuvoir ?

Des beats qui tapent, des mots qui frappent, gros !
Des beats qui tapent, des mots qui frappent, gros !

Je ne veux que jeter les bases d'une nouvelle phase,
passer un nouveau cap, lancer un son qui tape,
faire la démonstration que quelque chose de neuf
se passe dans mon appart' à côté de mes grattes.
Vas-y lance-toi mon gars, le monde t'attendra pas!
Vas-y lance-toi mon gars, le monde t'attendra pas!

J'aimerais que mes synapses se connectent et s'éclatent
et puissent trouver leur place dans le rock et le rap
pour que les mots du flow se noient dans les accords
et se mélangent alors au rythme qui s'échappe.
Vas-y lance-toi mon gars, le monde t'attendra pas!
Vas-y lance-toi mon gars, le monde t'attendra pas!

WASTED PRAYERS

Cry in my arms and leave your tears run down your chin, that's better
than give your soul to the devil and live in a grave of steel.
Take a deep breath and dive and swim and leave it all behind,
your charm will make me smile, don't be alarmed, there's more to find,

Another you, another eye keep on watching us from the skies,
a bit of truth, a pack of lies and prayers wasted to the shrines.
Another you, another eye keep on watching us from the skies,
a bit of truth, a pack of lies and prayers wasted to the shrines.

Smile to the stars and see how beautiful you are in the mirror,
the wish you made for me, I'll keep inside forever more.
You prayed and cried for help but no one ever heard you call,
'cause what you're looking for is right here, don't look for answers in the void.

Another you, another eye keep on watching us from the skies,
a bit of truth, a pack of lies and prayers wasted to the shrines.
Another you, another eye keep on watching us from the skies,
a bit of truth, a pack of lies and prayers wasted to the shrines.

They're watching us from the skies, they're watching us from the skies,
wasted prayers, wasted prayers, wasted prayers.
They're watching us from the skies, they're watching us from the skies,
wasted prayers, wasted prayers, wasted prayers.

FORGET MY SOUL

I will go where the birds have flown,
like elephants I'll die alone,
'cause of my fucking heart of stone,
the only thing I can call my own.

And the world will be yours to forget my soul,
time will even erase my name from the stone,
no one, no one will ever take me off that hole.

I made a promise that we would
be the kings of the neighborhood,
happiest of the happy few,
well, that was just my point of view.

And the world will be yours to forget my soul,
time will even erase my name from the stone,
no one, no one will ever take me off that hole.

THIS MOMENT

No one can tell you where to go or what to find in this life,
just wait for the moment, you'll know when it's time,
I am not sure we are alive but if we are, but if we are,
we will find each other in the dreams we have.

Now and forever I will look for the right time to ease my mind (time is flying by)
and if this quest becomes endless, I'll take no rest before I die (time is flying by)
Now and forever I will look for the right time to ease my mind (time is flying by)
and if this quest becomes endless, I'll take no rest before I die (time is flying by)

When this moment has passed and gone away and died in your mind,
will you still remember me the way I was?
When your chance is going to another place, leaving you blind,
will you keep on holding to this lie of mine?

Now and forever I will look for the right time to ease my mind (time is flying by)
and if this quest becomes endless, I'll take no rest before I die (time is flying by)
Now and forever I will look for the right time to ease my mind (time is flying by)
and if this quest becomes endless, I'll take no rest before I die (time is flying by)

LYRICS TRANSLATION

Chacun défend son coin -- Chrysalide

EVERYONE DEFEND THEIR TURF
original french lyrics

All my life I've been trying to be well and in tune
with my friends and relatives and all the people I met,
but I must admit I obtained mediocre results,
social life is not my cup of tea.

I traveled the world, I learned thousands of things
and I've had more than my fill of other people's indecisions,
Crescents, crosses, hammers and sickles,
everyone defend their turf and I am keeping score!

CHRYSALIDE
original french lyrics

For my music education, I opened Pandora's box,
stuff I found on the web, I could not stop asking for more,
I immersed myself in a world of which I only knew the surface,
I heard scurvy things but above all, I was pleasantly surprised!

Slapping beats, striking words, man !
Slapping beats, striking words, man !

So I said to myself, why wouldn't I try too,
and if I fail, why should I care, it will be bad and that is all.
The music within me must bloom and transform,
I think it is high time I dared composing other things.

Slapping beats, striking words, man !
Slapping beats, striking words, man !

I only wanna lay the foundations of a new era,
reach a new milestone, release a striking sound,
demonstrate that something new
is happening in my place next to my guitars.
Come on boy, go ahead, the world aint' gonna wait!
Come on boy, go ahead, the world aint' gonna wait!

I would like my synapses to connect and have a blast
and find their way in both Rock and Hip Hop
so that words drown into chords
and thus mix together with the rythm that's coming out.
Come on boy, go ahead, the world aint' gonna wait!
Come on boy, go ahead, the world aint' gonna wait!

Benchmarks for my ears are not Wu Tang or Cypress Hill,
I am very much convinced that Rock'n Roll is the best thing,
yet I also listen to their lyrics and my eardrums
burst and move about and get excited just like they do with Hendrix's riffs

Slapping beats, striking words, man !
Slapping beats, striking words, man !

The new century brought along new sounds that confirm
we must innovate to federate
an audience force-fed with new idols
that monopolize attention... Will I be invited to the party?

Slapping beats, striking words, man !
Slapping beats, striking words, man !

I only wanna lay the foundations of a new era,
reach a new milestone, release a striking sound,
demonstrate that something new
is happening in my place next to my guitars.
Come on boy, go ahead, the world aint' gonna wait!
Come on boy, go ahead, the world aint' gonna wait!

I would like my synapses to connect and have a blast
and find their way in both Rock and Hip Hop
so that words drown into chords
and thus mix together with the rythm that's coming out.
Come on boy, go ahead, the world aint' gonna wait!
Come on boy, go ahead, the world aint' gonna wait!
