about

Rotters Damn Laval, France

Voilà le premier album pour le quatuor mayennais. Il fait jaillir de nouveaux joyaux de ces terres folk-rock arpentées en maîtres. Moins bruts, plus ciselés, truffés d’arrangements et de contre-chants, façon Bon Iver ou Other Lives. On entend ici une trompette morriconienne, là un piano entêtant, parfois encore des ascensions héritées du post-rock ou la fougue poétique d'un Bertrand Cantat habité. ... more

Track Name: Horses
The crowd is speaking loud
About life and about spies
And whisper I tame flies
In this world there are no lies

But you are lying to my face
Saying we’ll foresee everything
Then I search for stoned answers
Among strange bothersome scales

Tame the coming changes
There are flowers in my brain
Same old days run wild
Wild, horses in the hills

Now I'm lighter on my feet
I am younger than I was
Sure I left some things behind
And we weathered many a storm

This is time to blaze
About signs and blows
Let's be aware of
Days off are a bore and slow

If we all try and all try
Gonna make it alright
All acting in those thirsty deserts
Waiting for our fading world to end
Track Name: Dig
Digging a deep hole in the field
Where I could sleep and stay until
Another morning with no deals
Or maybe there’s another way

Desperately searching my thoughts and feelings
In antique dramas, in fog and dreams
By seeking Achilles through ashes
You get all blind and all deceived

If in everything I try
There ain't no words floating
A sign that time has come
To go on living like a child

Outside I hear some strong wind growling
And they said : “War was coming”
Someday they'll know how measly they were
Fallen leaves on the porch of ignorance

Yes, everyday that same old story
That we'll be glad and dead or gone and sorry
The news proclaim :
"Be a good boy son, go find a job, go and move on"
I guess they’d say, when it’ll all be a fury

If in everything I try
There ain't no words floating
A sign that time has come
To go on living like a child

When I woke up this morning
Oh, I felt old and all diseased
No reason to turn on the news
No reason to feel alive in these rooms

Shooting stars they're now my friends
They make me draw a world in my head
And with my friends we were shooting
Life on Mars, staring kinda ghostly to look-in
Track Name: Night & Day
Night and day
This light flickered and flashed
Over my head
Lying across my face

I’m afraid, now
I’m afraid, for a long time

It keeps me awake
Everyday fighting

I am just afraid
I’m afraid, for sure
With this sickness over my head

Can I give this lying light ?
Can I take all my time ?
Can I be not afraid by ?
Can I just live ?
Track Name: Calexicoco
Well, Honey, I didn’t write to you
You know, this letter I needed to give you
Grave, powerful and brilliant
All you deserved to

Hey, Girl, don’t even cry
I’m alone, now, against my stone
My rolling, blown and faded one
All I deserved to

In the middle of the fog
T-t-t-t-take off

I should have told you, my old devoted friend
I should have told you
I should have told you, old devoted friend of mine

Hey, a big beautiful blue sky
Went down through my eyes
Fibbing, disorientating and sarcastic
All I expected

Well, I have no joker anymore, no one
Even a magnificent “Hallelujah” could make nothing
I stay pale and half dead
Desperately blind in the sun

All I expected was
Really really really… disagreeable
As I blew my erased words

I should have told you
While the moon cried in our bed and was acting a parade to beauty and pain
Old devoted friend of mine
I should have told you that my head would be cut at midday
Track Name: We Won't Fall
Don’t let it fall, don’t let it fall
If you believe in this dream

Don’t let it fall, don’t let it fall
If you believe in our dream

Some will stand in our way
Bitching about us
But you will come though
Cause there’s no other option

Come away with us now
On this road full of pitfalls
Full of strangers and vultures

Come away with us all
Far from a burning city
Far from a screaming country
We’ll erase their tales

I wait outside
Come away with us all
With no fanfare at all
Think about it when you smile
There’re no objections
There is no pain but only gain
For a breath or projections
There is no objection
But all the stuff is out in the rain
Hope
I don’t know anymore who I am
And we don’t know ourselves better
Sweet hope
Side by side, we walk
Oh
To catch moments in spite of monologue curfews

We won’t fall
Even if our dreams are too tall
Even if they are

We won’t fall
Even if our plan is just foolhardy and lost before
Even beginning

Cowards are gone
And rush hour has come
We won’t fall…

We won’t fall
Track Name: Peaks & Valleys
We've been craving all the day
For the glow of our vacuum trust
I feel coming with the night
Vapors of lost consciousness
Red and yellow trees turn black
And so my insanity

And I want it fine
But I walk the line
Every time I lose my mind

I saw you lying to Death
With the Joshua tree
Next to the building and the fools
Between megalomania stripes
It's lonely, cold and blue
That we try to forget the past

Never ending
Peaks and valleys
I’m roaming alone at night

And I want it fine
But I walk the line
Every time I lose my mind

Maybe I just want you to sing more, now
And I wanna be free

Stay my dear
People are lost they make me feel cold
We are craving, now
Maybe I just want you to stay my dear
Track Name: Down The Line
I won’t be afraid anymore
I know you’re so full of substance
You opine, you blame and you lance
People who’re wrong in your eyes

Let me see, man, just what you can do
With running and a pole, yes
Let me know how you colonized my mind

They threw away infected words, down the line
When Kings and Queens were still in denial

Ah, tu la sens cette absence de lumières, prises et prisées ?
Tu la vois, cette absence d’atmosphère ? Félonne.
Laisse-moi te regarder mouver, dans le vide.
Pourtant, en ce lieu je suis bien là. Près des lois.
Proche d’en découdre avec les déconvenues.
Prêt à me battre avec les plus ardus.
Je suis à vous, mes amis, mes aïeuls, mes emmerdeurs.

Prenez-moi par la garde.
Donnez-moi cette envie, cette envie de panache !
Prenez garde ! Prenez garde !
On criera, par dehors, par-delà ces toits, ce que je ne suis pas.
Je m’en fous. Je ne veux plus être effrayé. Jamais !

“And I won’t be afraid anymore”
On me glisse ça dans l’oreille. Les yeux attentifs, les oreilles grandes ouvertes.
Qu’on ne me presse plus. Qu’on me garde de vous regarder.
Dans tes yeux, je ne remarque plus que ça. Une errance. Cette errance. Une errance.
Ah, on ne crèvera pas d’ennuis, non ! Mais crèvera-t-on l’abcès ? Non, par cause de vous.
Mais regarde-toi, porter si bas ceux qui ne te siéent pas.

Dans ma course, je ne te verrai même plus. Briser. Nous briser.
Brisé, tu perdras ta tristesse. Tu ambitionneras tout ce que tu ne défends pas.
Oh, laisse-nous voir ce que tu peux prêter de toi.
Laisse-nous voir ce que tu n’entends pas.
Laisse-moi voir ce que tu n’es même pas.
Laisse-nous. Moi, je ne perdrai plus, non. Laisse-nous.
Cause I won’t be afraid anymore

Go back and think about what you’ve done
Well, man, I’m pretty sure you got your money back

I won’t be afraid anymore
I know you’re so full of substance
You opine, you blame and you lance
People who are wrong in your eyes
Track Name: But My Friend
All that time we spent apart
I know that everything was true
I felt you living in my heart
I saw you knockin’ at my door
And you were freezing my bones

I’m not quite sure who you are
But my friend you know that I think I love you
And you were freezing my bones

In the deepness of your eyes
Maybe I truly saw your soul
Slowly coming for a ride
In the shallows of Neptune
And you were freezing my bones

I’m not quite sure who you are
But my friend you know that I think I love you
And you were freezing my bones
