lyrics

247 verse 1

for a moment i,
thought i was giving up and never turning back
an everyday struggle to cope
focusing on the wrong ability
music appeals to me
need to learn better how to live it
get out of the dead end job
and push my life more to the limit
money is secondary i can live with just enough
as a kid i had it rough
mom alone with four of us
running water and open oven to heat the house
nights alone with no fun to speak about
felt like i was in a hole kept away from any change
can’t expand the brain if the aim is just be the same
feeling deranged
surrounded by strange people
if i continue being different won’t remain equal
feeling depressed
dealing with stress,
nonetheless
trying to keep everyone going on a road to distress
what a hopeless mess
feeling like it’s all turning against me
my cup runneth over to a lost state of empty
falling simply
letting go and dove mentally
dark days ahead due to unstable chemistry
need to get out
but it’s hard to fathom in a darkened chasm
every corners covered in a hopeless anthem
in my head i wonder what i can do next
tired of wasting my life in a job for a loose checks
up to my neck in a mess
and it’s only getting worse
need to focus on myself
before i end up in the dirt
alert
but nobody is there to listen
till a family took me in and showed me how to live in fair conditions
how to be responsible and deal with inner self
if you dug a hole
how to raise a hand for help
things i never understood till it hit me
the dark side of the room is a place that stays empty
- but it’s also a place where i escape
staring off into the hour with thoughts to ventilate


hook

on this place to be
the time won’t wait for me
no time to wait and see
cause i can break repeat


break down written by Mathieu Maubert

French:
Le temps ah le temps c'est qqch d'immateriel, d'imperceptible. Il passe et passe et passe sans que l'on ne puisse rellement le stopper ou ralentir sa course effrené

English:
Time, oh time is something immaterial, imperceptible. It is going on and on and on without us being able to really stop it or even slow down its "unbridled" race
