An Ode to the vicious loop drug use causes to the mind of an addict. It's impossible resolution, permanent torment, ultimate abandonment to pure yet fake and short lived happiness. A story where the protagonist ends up happy and the story sad.

Singing performance & composition by Laure Le Prunenec
Musical composition & Lyrics by Stélian Derenne


Light rises up,
Turns (the)night to day,
I feel it coming up,
Drifting me away.

Coming up, coming up,...

Verse 1:
It's 6 o'clock in the morning,
And i walk straight,
My blood unfilthed by anything,
And it feels great.
Sun right in my face
People right in they're place
The city sings my song
Today can't go wrong,

BRK 1:
Today, to work,
The floor is shinning,
Reflects a jerk
That i ended up wiping,
But still,
The floor was blinding

Verse 2:
So I kept on wipping,
All day long,
Got tired of it from the beginning,
And still stayed strong,
And hardest thing,
There is among,
Was with the other ones,
To get along.

-False smiles,
-Forced talks,
-Tired up faces,
-Repeted jokes.

BRK 2:
It drove me mad,
and so sad,
Who knew life had,
To be so bad,
After i while i ran away,
After a while i had to get away,
So now,
I'm calming down the pain,
And now,
I feel it moving in my vein,
And reaching for my brain

Verse 3:
I know it's in vain,
I know it's insane,
I know it's the same,
I know it remains,
I know it's to blame,
I know it's a shame,
And I don't care,
No I don't care,
Coz despit it,
Sun's rising up,
It's 6 in the morning again,
My head's completely fucked,
But for once sings the sound of my brain.


And I know i'll be down again,
As the dawn cycle don't depend,
On my sa-ni-ty
