Night Train 05:04
No one knows what you see Waiting for the night train Looking for the right lane To leave Unknowns walking in line Waiting for salvation Waiting for the right time To die Listen to their cold voice Begging for the night train Coming now Is there a way to get out? Of this state of violence Is there a way to feel right? Again Let the wolf at your door You never meant to come back You never thought it could scratch Your back No one knows where you go Even you don’t you girl? But its rhythm comes slow And you burn It’s a strange way to get lost It’s a strange time for being a ghost And the widow’s waiting And the widow’s scared And the widow’s howling At the half-moon’s flare The blade and the virtue The anger and the cold The silence and the shame All are gathered in one The nakedness, the violence The madness and the bad patch The remorse and the defeat` All are gathered in one It’s a strange way to get lost It’s a strange time for being a ghost And the widow’s waiting And the widow’s scared And the widow’s howling At the half-moon’s flare No one knows what you see Waiting for the night train

Mad Season 03:47
I don’t want to get down Down in the doorway Don’t want to turn back Into your haze Don’t want to feel right Caught in your eloquence Don’t want a go astray Back in the daze Don’t want to show you The smell of decay Don’t want to see you Just want to break Don’t want to fall now Into your choking arms Don’t want to see the light Don’t want to dive Don’t need your Mercy It’s up to you to scream I’ve pushed your cold gift Out of my dreams Don’t want to show you The smell of decay Don’t want to see you Just want to break Your heart is jet black Your heart is jet black Your heart is jet black you killed its bright light you killed its bright light you killed its bright light Now it’s a new start Now comes a new world A land of promises A kind of spark Into this great slide No place for illusion No place for mirrors It’s time to rise Don’t want to show you The smell of decay Don’t want to see you Just want to break Your heart is jet black Your heart is jet black Your heart is jet black you killed its bright light you killed its bright light you killed its bright light I don’t want to get down Down in the doorway Don’t want to turn back Into your haze Don’t want to feel right Caught in your eloquence Don’t want a go astray Back in the daze

I know the distant smile Well hung on at the mirror of ghouls I see that you all may rise And walk where the river flows And I do answer the rain Come tomorrow and we’ll see I know the little black dust Lost in brilliant fortress I swear that you all will rise And walk where the river ends And I do answer the pain Come tomorrow and we’ll see Kill me twice You can kill me twice Come back tomorrow There comes another rainbow Another flame that you need I guess that you’ll love him too Another piece to your greed And all my answers are vain Cause we’re tomorrow and I see Kill me twice You can kill me twice Come back tomorrow

Black Swan 04:53
Black Swan You’re not like the others Your feathers are gold You’ll find in no river Black Swan Your eyes are like heavens As sweet as the light As cold as an arrow Black Swan Your color’s a gift As dark as the sea As deep as the ocean Black Swan You’re not like the others Your feathers are gold You’ll find in no river Black Swan Life is a promise You need to keep it safe Inside of your heart Black Swan Don’t believe in the fate Sometimes you’ll be god Sometimes you’ll be no one Black Swan It’s a strange ride Take care of your dreams Take care of your lover Black Swan I’m proud to call you son Cause the blood in your veins Is a kind like mine.

Summer Knows 03:37
I had no means to find The way that I came from I took a seat and watched The falling rain Some kids were playing free Like fairies with dead leaves I would have liked you Also to be here But days are not the same The devil took my chair and summer knows you can be anywhere Anywhere but there I laid down in the grass And Staring at the birds i drew a line between heaven and earth But days are not the same The devil took my chair and summer knows you can be anywhere Anywhere but there But days are not the same The devil took my chair and summer knows you can be anywhere Anywhere but there I had no means to find The way that I came from I took a seat and watched The falling rain

Back Home 02:54
All the words that have been told Run away into the dark All this lies I can’t ignore Now fade away into the past I’m on my way back home I’m on my way back home All this time I thought I could Teach a star how to be queen I was young and you were still Waiting for the morning feels I’m on my way back home I’m on my way back home I’m on my way back home All the words that have been told Run away into the dark All this lies I can’t ignore Now fade away into the past

Cold Rain 03:44
Back in the Streets where we grown All this goes back up to a long time You were the fool and I was the one hidden behind your back We knew that nothing was done That all the days would be perfect But now the town is like a swamp And I can say You’re a cold rain Stuck in my neck Whispering all the words I’ve never ever found You’re the cold wind Trapped in my head Blowing all the words I’ll never ever find They said you were all alone Lost in the woods up to the river They said that no one could have heard Your weeping shouts but I swear That every time I look back I see the man and the rifle I see me running far from you And from the hells But there’s a cold rain Stuck in my neck Whispering all the words I’ve never ever found There’s a cold wind Trapped in my head Blowing all the words I’ll never ever find Into the ground

My Own Gold 03:44
In your eyes, I can see the slogger, Like a stone, The good man of the year, I will let you down, No I don’t need you You’re in my light And I‘ve got my own gold When the rage Is getting huge on my face When you search, For The perfect explain, I will let you down, No I don’t need you I will say yeah yeah That you don’t have more time Like a clock The sound of your life Do you read me now? Cause It’s the last night That you really live And tomorrow You will see That I’ve got my own gold In your eyes, I see the slogger, Like a stone, The good man of year, I want let you down, Coz I don’t need you You’re in my light And I‘ve got my own gold And I‘ve got my own gold And I‘ve got my own gold And I‘ve got my own gold

White Tulip 03:48
Pouring rain on Memory lane Ocher leaves on the steps Seventy-eights on the phonograph Early Jazz you can dance to “My friends are not his friends” Says a voice from your heart “This world is not the worlds” Says the book in your backpack Hypertime may gather us Bunny, get your jetpack, fly to me From your far-off universe Whatever earth’s number it might be One six one o Two nine five ohhhhh Messy basement of the cottage Paperwall turned yellow Dusty pictures by your great uncle Of a man with funny hair “our pope is not their pope” Said your vicar to her flock “Life is a trefoil knot” Sings the ghost of your dad Hypertime may gather us Bunny, get your jetpack, fly to me From your far-off universe Whatever earth’s number it might be Two one four nine Nine two eight ohhhh Scribbled pi’s on a disused board Puzzled cat in a box White tulip in an envelope Return address unknown Hypertime may gather us Bunny, get your jetpack, fly to me From your far-off universe Whatever earth’s number it might be To six one six Six one six ohhhhh

All I want, is to drift into your dreams All I need, is to walk into your steps But I won’t even say hello No I won’t even say hello You’re like a light lost in the shadows A mystery box, suspended to my flesh But I won’t even say hello No I won’t even say hello Oh god tell me the truth, am I someone like you? I’m falling on my knees, since I’ve been watching through But I won’t even say hello No I won’t even say hello Do me wrong, let’s swallow the dead skins And tell the limbs, I’m lost into their dreams But I won’t even say hello No I won’t even say hello

Sweet heart see The world is on fire Give me all you’ve got I say give me all you troubles Cause, oh little sweety The world is like us Burning from the inside Exploding like a rocket Sweet heart lie I won’t give a fuck if you Say that I’m your lover Say that I am your man I mean nothing doesn’t matter The world is on fire Tell me you’re my lover Tell me I won’t give a fuck Stay little star The world is on fire I’m weeping like a dog Cause I can’t sleep in the dark I need you this time I need you forever I’m waiting for your call I’m waiting for your answer I’m shivering like a child Shivering like a leaf Waiting for your call Waiting for you breath Come little star The world is on fire Tell me you’re my lover Tell me I won’t give a fuck

July 04:36
I was lost in my nightmares Hung on at an angel of darkness, Blown out like a candle That’s never seen the day I followed the riverbanks And under the crown of the streetlights I heard the slow breath Of a forgotten time She called me back to life With a sweet and fragile voice And in a big flash of lightning While everything was so lost She disappeared, leaving behind her All the hopes and all the chances And for a moment I felt as If everything had changed Never felt so young Never felt so strong Walking on the water Running in the plains Waiting for the white birds Sliding on their wings I was trapped in a cold room Becoming more and more empty The devil had been changing the rules And there was no victory But July is the month Of the harvests of the light And the one you brought to me Was like a sign into the dark Never felt so young Never felt so strong Walking on the water Running in the plains Waiting for the white birds Sliding on their wings

about

The one armed man Strasbourg, France

"Il n'a pas de nom, juste un surnom, The one armed man.
Le manchot. Manchot, mais as du manche, musicien mystérieux tout droit sorti d' un film de David Lynch.

Fils spirituel de Tom Waits, il a préféré son âme à la gloire facile. Ami, si The one armed man passe par chez toi, prépare le whisky et les amplis, et laisse faire la magie."

Emmanuel Didierjean
