MessageSujet: Welcome DOWN to Earth (Project Versus' 1st album lyrics)   Jeu 24 Avr - 18:01

(We've got copyright on this...)

1. Welcome DOWN to Earth

(The Oppressor)
Welcome down to Earth
We hope you enjoyed your birth
From now, you are not yours

We'll give you a number and
You'll work, we'll command
(The Prophet)
Reality's a fucking tragedy

You say that Earth is too small
You say you need to build walls
I say you're delusional

You say that war is good for
Science, economy and industry
Since when is death good for humanity?

We've all been born from the same seed
What makes you think you're over me?
We've all been born from a mother's womb
What makes you think you're over me?

Kneeling down before the ones to despise?
We've been down before, now it's time to rise

Hey, fuck you!

Are you yet another scar on the surface?
Will you join us in a war and face the faceless?

So rise!



2. Contrails

(The Prophet)
Distortion in the theatre
Some forgot how to act
They were taught the wrong lines

Raised to be oblivious
Some forgot how to play
They forgot just how to be

Raised to be narcissistic
Some forgot how to pay
They forgot just who to be

Contrails in the sky
Won't help you to fly
Contrails in the sky
Won't save those who've died

Some forgot the obvious
Some forgot how to rise
Some forgot how to sympathize

Some of us never realize
We've all got the same prize
We'll all pay the same price

Diseased mankind killing itself
Diseased by being its innate self

Naturally malfunctioning
Artistic disorder
We might reach the last hour

Distortion in the theatre
We forgot how to react
We might play the ending act



3. No Man's Land

(The Prophet)
From the wheel and fire
Came the bomb; the deity of our days
This ruling desire
Hence the sound of children crying today

The garden is fading
Consumed by the roots of its flowers
The prevalent victim
Mother Earth is bleeding

We're fools to give mankind a crown
To make the world our own
And be the first to burn it down

We're tools - bred to be alive
But raised to kill - or die
And to murder our own mother

We're blind - a plague to the mantle
We make it all crumble
Setting ablaze our own cradle

Mankind - Proud to be Earth's child
Civilized but gone wild
Evolution of destruction

Born on no man's land
Thorn down by men's hand
No one dares to stand
Earth will never mend

We will be the end of this wondrous sight



4. Eden's Curse

(The Soldier)
I've been given a one-way ticket to a cage

Just drifting away from myself, refusing to obey
Rust devastating the way to my shelf where only dirt remains

But I'm trapped

Eden's curse
Trapped in a nightmare
Foolish dream
Turned into nightmare

We've been given the Garden of Eden; the reward is living, the sentence is surviving

(The Brother)
No purpose to satisfy
The craving for a life

(The Soldier)
I've been driven away from my dreams; my own ideals

Just looking for a way to subsist; to give a sense to this
I will be sent away to resist for those who can't exist

Who are trapped

(The Brother)
No purpose; no eyes



5. Pandora

(The Brother)
His name means nothing for the ones he serves
But means everything for the ones he left

A lover for a day
A brother in a way
A soldier in the end
For one, a sweet legend

Behind each grave's a nameless star

On long cold nights; he can only dream
Of the warmth and softness of his Pandora

A lover for a day
A brother in a way
A soldier in the end
Sold himself to defend

The ones he loves; his only scars

A lover for a day
A brother in a way
A soldier in the end
His scars will never mend

So what's the point to win a war?

A lover for a day
A brother in a way
A soldier? - don't pretend
A man, a love, a friend

Behind each grave's a nameless star



6. THE(H)ATER

(The Oppressor)
Attention, soldier!

You've received a different skin and you've been trained to kill
All you have to do is surrender your own free will
You're sent to impose laws on other societies
People with different colors and different ideas

There's blood in your eyes; you are loosing your sanity
You can't really tell if he's a man or an enemy
It doesn't matter; you're the puppet of a man in a suit
He points the target; point the gun and shoot shoot shoot shoot

(The Prophet)
Psychotic solipsism
Homicidal egoism

(The Oppressor)
Now, for someone you can't see, it's like a game of chess
He just moves pieces and lets the pawns handle the rest
Orders; there is nothing else on which you can relate
Listen to the whip crack; end it in a checkmate

You can't really tell if he's a man or an enemy
What kind of life he lived or if he has a family
It doesn't matter now; you're the clown of a Sam in a suit
He points the target; you're the trigger shoot shoot shoot shoot

(The Prophet)
Introducing the masters of grotesque
Wishing for the world to be theirs
Pretending to work for mankind's interest
Only money gives; only money lives

Sacrificing billions for one
Then wonder which country won
Believe me when I say that flags are only sins
Why do you like tissue more than your own kin?

Every lost life is a whole world that dies
Probably a wife left to cry
Mindlessly discarding existence
But only money gives; only money lives

(The Oppressor)
Just close your eyes and forget you're a man
Be hypnotized; don't regret no man's land
Just close your eyes and forget no man's land
Be hypnotized; don't regret you're a man

(The Brother)
And somewhere inside you just can't forget
Your Pandora; your only regret

(The Soldier)
The whole world has always been a theatre of war



7. [Versus 1] - The Pawn

(The Prophet)
Contemplating life through a rifle scope
Only endings can be observed
Bullets as faith; men as scapegoats
Only endings can be offered

(The Soldier)
God is on my side
When the world collides
I'll follow my oath
Marching on your vault

Get out of my way
There's no need to pray
Only need’s to pay

No one is just
There's no one to trust
I'll kill if I must

You're my enemy
It's not hard to see
Your skin has told me

Don't ask me why
I can't justify
You're going to die

Moving forth along with the frontline
With support from mechanical siblings
We'll obliterate all signs of life
Or, at least, all that is standing

The more I kill, the more I get
In a world where living is greed
I am glad it’s the way we met
Your passing provides me with what I need

You are killed for your choice of god
You are killed for your voice so odd
You are killed for what WE call sin
You are killed 'cause we're told that's how we win

Contrails are followed by destruction
Rays of clouds to bring down a race
A work of art we call devastation
Fireworks of total disgrace

We are fighting for democracy
For a world of equality
It seems the only way to get freedom
Is for us to take arms and get rid of some

There isn't much of a difference
Between a frontline and a death row
I just need to shut down my conscience
I am paid to send you to the next zone

After all you are only insects
And your death will mean nothing
Your role is to be one with the mud
Lying; dead; rotting

God is on no side
When the world collides
I’ll forget my oath
Marching to my vault

Now ask me why
I can justify
I am going to die



8. [Versus 2] - The Human

(The Soldier)
Cold; lying down
I realize I was wrong

(The Brother)
His name means nothing for the ones he served

(The Soldier)
I’ve been to war; I miss my scars
The curtain falls on me now

I built a wall around a star
I could have been free; I should have been free

Alone; I lost my crown
I never got to apologize or say goodbye



9. After

(The Brother)
We've been through together
We've whispered together

You're lying down in white sheets
And I am the last to close your eyes

We've been through together, dear brother
We've whispered together

(The Soldier)
I'm falling -

(The Brother)
And I don't know how I could go on without you
Unlock a door to the void and just step through

Why you've gone away?
You've lost your mind
They don't care about you
They've disposed of you

We are still together, dear brother
And you will be the last to close my eyes

Remember what we've seen, brother
Tell me what will remain after
Remember what we've done, brother
Tell me what made a gun better

(The Soldier)
I'm flying -

(The Brother)
There's no hope, this is not my home
If I'm left alone, I'll rely on a rope (and break free)

What have you done?
Why have you gone?
You've killed us both
For a flag on your vault



10. Siblings

(The Prophet)
We've all been born from the same blood; the same seed
What made you think you could direct me?

Outroducing the masters of grotesque
Wished to be the world; wished to be its heir
Dared to bring men down to trivial interests
But only money takes; only money breaks

And there isn’t much of a difference
Between life and a death row
If you want a taste of your efforts
Stick a knife down your throat

I would sacrifice the one for the billions
If only I had such a god
You should consider ending this oppression
Before the enslaved wake and stand in your blood

We’ve all noticed our mistakes, but have we learned?

We've all been born from a mother's womb; ancestors' tombs
How does it feel to be just like me?

Every lost life’s a whole world that died
Trust me; there’s a man inside every soldier
What kind of a god is on your side when
Only money shakes, only money takes, only money breaks

Now; we've all noticed our mistakes; what have we learned?
Will we finally find peace or just surrender?

We've all been born - now, nothing else should change our ways
How does it feel to be just like us?
You're just like us...

:)
De la 4em chanson à la 9em, ça raconte l'histoire d'un homme qui part à la guerre. "The Soldier" est un personnage fictif que j'ai inventé en m'inspirant de mon meilleur ami présentement en entraînement militaire... "The Brother" serait moi qui, tant bien que mal, essaie de lui faire comprendre que ce n'est pas une bonne idée... "The Oppressor" est évidemment le rôle du gouvernement, ou encore un sosie de l'oncle Sam, a.k.a I want YOU to join the US army... et "The Prophet" est l'entité omniprésente qui s'oppose à "The Oppressor"; prônant donc la paix et la liberté.

Donc oui, c'est un album concept portant sur la guerre, inspiré et écrit entièrement pour mon ami qui, je l'espère, suivra une toute autre histoire...


Je suis content que ça te plaise :)

MessageSujet: "And the wind swept through Georgia..."   Lun 28 Avr - 0:37

Voici ce que j'ai relevé d'une première lecture:

I Anthem a écrit:
1. Welcome DOWN to Earth
We've all been born from the same seed
What makes you think you're over me?
We've all been born from a mother's womb
What makes you think you're over me?

Dans le contexte que tu décris, la bonne expression serait "above me", parce "over me", ça indiquerait que tu fréquentais la personne et qu'elle t'as planté là et qu'elle est passée à autre chose...

I Anthem a écrit:
3. No Man's Land
Born on no man's land
Thorn down by men's hand

Ça s'écrit sans H, parce qu'avec un H, ça veut dire "épine"...

I Anthem a écrit:
4. Eden's Curse
Just looking for a way to subsist; to give a sense to this

Meaning serait le mot exact, parce que "sense", c'est plus pour les 5 sens et pour les émotions que pour vouloir dire une signification, une direction...

J'aime bien le concept de The(h)ater et J'ai hâte d'entendre Pandora aussi.


I Anthem a écrit:
6. THE(H)ATER
Why do you like tissue more than your own kin?

Euhm, "tissue", c'est le mot pour des mouchoirs, je crois que tu voulais plus indiquer du tissus, qui serait "fabric", quoique dans un sens, tu pourrais aussi vouloir dire que le drapeau est un grand mouchoir... Ça peut aussi vouloir dire des tissus dans le sens biologique du terme, genre "scar tissue"...


I Anthem a écrit:
9. After
Remember what we've done, brother
Tell me what made a gun better

Je dirais plus "tell me what a gun made better" (Qu'est-ce qu'un fusil a-t'il bien pu améliorer" plutôt que "Qu'est-ce qui a bien pu améliorer un fusil"...



En gros, j'aime le concept des voix/visions qui sont en opposition tout au long. C'est vraiment bien écrit, tu as fait ça seul ou avec l'aide de ton band?

It's all by meself dear...

but...

a bit late for correction since everything's been recorded already...
Et de toute façon, les mots "corrects" sonneraient vraiment mal à mon avis :S

Mais merci beaucoup tout de même pour le coup de main!

Eh bien, tu ne cesses de m'impressionner, mon cher...


Je sais, parfois les mots qui conviennent au sens ne conviennent pas en chanson parce que ça brise le rhytme ou ça sonne étrange et dissonnant et ça ne rime pas... C'est tout un art, écrire des chansons... Et les rendre en est un autre... Mais tu as beaucoup de talent pour les deux, alors avec un peu de travail, tu vas devenir encore meilleur...

J'ai hâte d'entendre le résultat final... On peut pré-commander votre album bientôt, dis?Wink

De rien, ça me fait plaisir, si ça peut te rendre service d'une manière ou d'une autre... C'est pas grave si c'est tout enregistré... ça peut pas être pire que "Papa Lapped A Pap Lopped" , Et la toune de Gackt qui a supposément un titre en Anglais mais que personne n'a jamais compris, hormis lui-même... ou son "crew sees crying knees" dans Vanilla au lieu de "crucifying needs"... Et ça n'est certainement pas le seul à faire des erreurs du genre, mais c'est lui qui m'a le plus marqué avec ses erreurs à ce jour...
