Track Name: Our Last Shot
Things are looking pretty bad, but we’ve been down this road
I guess we’re ready for goodbyes, still it feels so awkward
And then, nobody can tell what really went wrong
But we won’t ever really care, ’cause I’m already gone

My tricks are getting really old, but I keep showing them off
And my eyes are turning pretty cold, but I’m still having fun
And I guess I’m always quite the same, shuffling right, left and back
I was never one for settling down, but we’ll see about that

And I know it’s our last shot
’Cause I won’t ever get caught again
And I know it’s our last shot
And I’m looking up, until I see something

Well, it seems like days are so much shorter from this half of summer
And my thoughts aren’t getting any clearer as your face is getting further
And I hate to say that I was wrong to say we’re better off alone
’Cause while I’m going round in circles I doubt that I got any wiser

And I know it’s our last shot
’Cause I won’t ever get caught again
And I know it’s our last shot
And I’m looking up, until I see something
Track Name: Superhero
Need to surround myself with
Beautiful things in the hope they help
I turn my good side to the sun
Its healing vibes, they burn inside out
I’m not quite ready yet since I remember and still forget

One year of slightly losing track
I wasted much I cannot get back
As frail as life between the trees
I’m grey as light sends its good deeds

I cannot think of a greater pain
If it had to be felt in one day
No witness standing to tell the story
I look at myself from outside my body
Out in the open my wound’s still hot
From when I remembered and then forgot

I cannot think of a greater pain
If it had to be felt in one day
No witness standing to tell the story
I look at myself from outside my body
Out in the open my wound’s still hot
That’s what you get when you’re trying too hard
I look at myself from outside my body
Out in the open my wound’s still hot
From when I remembered and then forgot
Track Name: 26 septembre
We’re going south
Because we know that winter
Will be hard on us and the others
We’ll change our names
And go by train, we’ll shut
The doors when it’s pouring rain

We’ll hit the road and we’ll be long gone
Before they know what’s been going on
And if we wait for the snow, we won’t be leaving
When the cold takes hold, our heart is failing

So they will say what they need to say
But they don’t know shit about me anyway
We’re going south because we know
That winter will be hard

We’ll hit the road and we’ll be long gone
Before they know what’s been going on
And if we wait for the snow, we won’t be leaving
When the cold takes hold, our heart is failing
Track Name: Immune
There’s something I didn’t get
There’s something I missed
Was it something I didn’t say
Or was it something I did

When I look into my precious mirror
Well it only shows my darkest features
I try to get a grip of the old me
But you take it away when you’re on the scene

And you make it all wrong
You make it all right
The minute you’re gone
The minute you’re back

I know it’s been a while since we talked
That doesn’t erase feelings
And since my pride went for a walk
I don’t answer to nothing

And there’s a thousand roles I could have played
And there’s a thousand words I could have said
And there’s a thousand rules that I never knew
And there’s a thousand fools that could be you

And you make it all wrong
You make it all right
The minute you’re gone
The minute you’re back

Do we stop here and reboot computers
Or do we linger still until it crashes later
I’ll shoot my brains out again if you come back around
But I won’t suffer the blame to watch us go down

You make it all wrong
You make it all right
The minute you’re gone
The minute you’re back

You know it ain’t right but you will be back
We might as well rest ’til dawn
We’re making the best of it all
Tonight we’re immune
Say we’re bulletproof
And no matter how hard we bleed
Doesn’t mean that I want to leave
Track Name: Criminals
Yesterday we created courage
In a place we underestimated
We are daughters and sons of perpetual guilt
And to be taught wrong is the only wrong we did
Wonder how long we can hold
We never had to be brave
How did we end up so old
I used to feel fairly safe

In the front row a man fell down
We got him back on his feet before he even touched the ground
I need your words to keep my heart clean
The more I learn, the more I urge myself to see

When your flag is coming down
And their fires are spreading around
That’s when we know there’s much to be done still
We can take you under our care
Underneath a coloured flare
We’ll collide like electrons in the sky

We hid like criminals in the back street
Quite a radical way for you and me to meet
The idea of us is stronger than we are
We wait the night away ’til morning do us part

When your flag is coming down
And their fires are spreading around
That’s when we know there’s much to be done still
We can take you under our care
Underneath a coloured flare
We’ll collide like electrons in the sky
Track Name: La pieuvre
I wouldn’t care if you’d go now
But I wouldn’t dare to say it out loud
Your eyes are mean, they’re scaring me
And I can’t keep it calm
From a thousand feet under the sea
You call

You spoke in tones I never heard before
Your words were songs that shook me to the core
I wish I’d known they’d bring me far from home

I swam ’til my feet could touch the seabed
I moved ’til my dreams weren’t better than dead
I came too close
I burnt my nose and moaned
But once I chose it I could never go back home

I lost my heart to a giant, purple octopus
And I sacrificed my life for a greater purpose

I felt your body and it gave me chills
I watched so closely it became surreal
My time is gone
I feel my lungs go numb
And now I know I can never go back home

I lost my heart to a giant, purple octopus
And I sacrificed my life for a greater purpose
Track Name: Daydreaming
With eyes open I was having a dream
And as real as it seemed
It wasn’t right

I saw you or was it somebody else
I remember your face
And your Converse shoes

I hope you know what it means to me
When I’m on my own and I wish I’d be
Right here, right here, right here

When I get my stuff and I’m ready to go
That’s when things get rough and I lose control
I can’t let go, let go, let go

I get lost in the haze of it all
And I keep chasing a ball
That’s spinning ’round, and ’round, and ’round
I get scared and I lie to your face
Being asleep or awake
I let you down

And I hope you know what it means to me
When I’m on my own and I wish I’d be
Right here, right here, right here

And when I get my stuff and I’m ready to go
That’s when things get rough and I lose control
I can’t let go, let go, let go
Track Name: The Things I've Done
I wonder ’bout the things I’ve done
Even though I am still so young
I fed my heart with so much junk
I’m scared to see what it’ll become

I wonder ’bout the things that last
When deceptions hurt like broken glass
I haven’t gotten here to lie
I haven’t watered trees to watch them die

I put myself behind the bars inside my mind
Apprehending the next sign I keep waiting in line
I’ll take good care of what I’ve got
I’ll stay awake to watch the sun come out

All the things that I’ve done
Got me wandering alone
All the things that I’ve done
They got me wandering alone

And now my eyes are looking down
I fear the night, I hate the sun
I wanna change the way I speak
I wanna play and feel the beat

All the things that I’ve done
Got me wandering alone
All the things that I’ve done
They got me wandering alone
Track Name: Our Hearts Like Gold
We tried to take off on time because we care
The animals were awfully kind to lead us there
They felt us near, the way was clear

Even when you think you know where you belong
How can you expect to grow when you stay home
Your feet are gold, get off the road

We saw a cloud of grey smoke rising from your yard
The world has got the strangest ways to work things out

And our hearts will never be the same
I wonder why I came but I did
And the things we thought we’d never see
We look up to the trees while they speak
I’m right where you are
I don’t need much more, for now

And our hearts will never be the same
I wonder why I came but I did
And the things we thought we’d never see
We look up to the trees while they speak
Track Name: The Chase
You may think that you are done with us
But it’s only just begun
You may think that you can get rid of us
We’re having too much fun

Your shoes are laced
And you put your pretty face on
You’re looking great
Let’s start the chase

And you keep waiting for your
Special golden moment
Let’s make it happen

You may think that you are done with us
But it’s only just begun
It’s only just begun
