An Ode to the abstract relation of a drug addict to what remains of his life.

Singing performance & composition by Aurélien Barry
Musical composition & Lyrics by Stélian Derenne


Head's away
133 BPM

The ground withdrawn
My head's away,
When my mind is gone
My body plays

When my mind is gone
My feelings aside
That sweet taste left is a
A lie
My senses lives
A lie

Curious case
Of nothingness
The bassline curves
In emptiness
My mind is struggling for sanity
As vanity
Prices reality

No trip for remedy
Mine sells down the streets
I got the recepy
To be swept off my feets
to live this life,
And die,
And dive,
My innocence's alive,
My inner-self's a lie,

The ground withdrawn
My head's away,
When my mind is gone
My body plays

When my head's away
I head away,
When my head's away,
So far,
By the stars
