Lyrics – La Fin Absolue Du Monde

la-fin

1. Close My Eyes

There’s gotta be something; there’s gotta be something that keeps everything from falling apart
Rather be dead, rather be dead, I’d rather be dead than say the words I’ve said
There’s gotta be some way out of here; there’s gotta be some way out of here
Rather be dead, rather be dead, you’d rather be dead than feel the hate I’ve fed
There’s gotta be some way out of here; there’s gotta be some way out of here
Close my eyes and wish for death
There’s gotta be some way out of here

2. New Life

This is what it feels like with a gun to your back, I realize my own fate and give it a new name
Turn the cards with the ace in your stack, nothing stops the pain, nothing stays the same
I am begging for new life, a new breath to end our unease
We all travel for new life, a new breath in a pity of existence
I walk this path alone, searching for a hint of understanding
I feel this fear in my bones, trying to ignore my sense of loss
The dead will talk; the dead bear witness
The dead will talk; the dead bear witness
Sacred is the breath that breathes new life
A simple touch to share our land
Sacred is the breath that breathes new life
A familiar face to take a stand
I am begging for new life, a new breath to end our unease
We all travel for new life, a new breath in a pity of existence
I walk this path alone, searching for a hint of understanding
I feel this fear in my bones, trying to ignore my sense of loss

3. Neglect

Let’s burn our home so there’s no place to go
No coming back with a fire in our eyes, no lies to hide behind
Prey up on the fragile and innocent, no respect for life but our own
We’ll be rewarded with wrath and vengeance
Can’t get the bullshit out of the way, can’t face our problems on our own
I’ll fight my battles with the words I write
There is no coming back from watching the world turn to ash
I’ll stick it out ‘til the very end
I wished for sleep and inner peace, but I can’t hide from what is real
If this is my time then I will meet you headstrong with a heart of steel
In this time of desperation, a few are living with ease
Grant my wish for separation from this living disease
No sense of purpose or security
Acting blind witness to hypocrisy
Nothing can stop the future from living in regret
Nothing can stop the future from living in neglect

4. I’ve Got a Bad Feeling About This

I feel imprisoned by the choices I have made
I feel betrayed by myself I used to trust
Locked into a future that I cannot escape
No matter who you are, we all share the same fate
This dead end path is no different from the other
Waiting for the end as soon as I’m awake
Never any sleep, no time away from each other
No matter who you are, we all share the same fate
God save us, we’re failing, we’re falling
Grant me the cure, we’re breeding with disease
Mother of fire grant me a kiss
To sterilize the world, to sanitize this place
When I got to where I was heading, I fell down
Swallowed whole by the ground, I refused to get up
I have no other choice, I refuse to give up
I have no other choice, it’s all or fucking nothing
No future, no fate – there’s nothing but the lies we make

5. Information Overload

What the fuck kind of legacy are we leaving behind?
Sulking in our selfishness alone
Stuck in a war for blood, we are our own worst enemy
Consume, contaminate and crash and burn – the beat of our hearts will never return
I can’t keep up with anything that’s ever fucking going on – Information overload
I can’t stop myself from staring at a goddamn screen – Information overload
We all needed someone to place the blame on
It could have been you, it could have been me
We’re all just too afraid to take a look at ourselves
Who fucked up, was it you, was it me?
I don’t know I think we’re all at fault
It’s too late so let’s suffer the loss together

6. Balance of Terror

“We all pay for life with death, so everything in between should be free”
I could never find the inner link, it’s everywhere and in between
We’re falling down onto the floor, old wounds to open sores
Suffer through the aftermath of everything and in between
I could never find inner peace where my wounds are open sores
“We all pay for life with death, so everything in between should be free”
I will always find pure nothingness and luxury in glass pipe dreams
Withering with emptiness, heart turns to ash, the hatred is poisoning
Nothing can stop the balance, the balance of terror
Everything is clean where everything is clearer
Look into the future, calm burns the fire
Ashes are the truth when we burn the liar
Nothing can stop the balance where peace brings us terror
Ashes are the truth when we burn the liar
We will burn the liar

7. World Sterilization

I could see through the bullshit a million miles away
Like a nest of hornets swallowing a thousand bees
I’d rather have your hate than nothing at all
I’d let you kill me so I don’t face death alone
Blood is what I came here for, you’re in my target I won’t fucking miss

8. The Exiles

Time stops, we think we’ll live forever one way or another
Humanity is without remorse
Raped and divided, our families torn apart
Burdened are the few left behind
Forgiveness forever denied

9. Prey

Run, run, run for your life because there are no lone wolves today
Run, run into tomorrow, the pack has come to hunt its prey
Your death is a key to the predator’s survival
Cowards will run and losers will fight, the pack will live to fight another day
Prey

10. Sickened by the Wake

Death came down to the center of peace
He wore a white face, covered in hate
No remorse for the innocent
His life was taken as a necessary loss
I’m sick
Why do you care about what doesn’t affect you?
You can live your own life free to have rest
But you carry such weight, you carry such hate
I can’t figure out how you’re so fucking stubborn
A wake up call to the population
Prejudice and division is something we can’t take
We carry such weight; we’re so full of hate
We hold on to worthless traditions, taking away our own human rights
I’m sick
I’m sick of living on stolen land
We are cursed from actions that are from another’s hand
Sickened by the wake, sickened by the wake
I’m sick of living with prejudice
We divide ourselves with no love for each other
Sickened by the wake, sickened by the wake

11. Rain Darkness

You’re children’s children will be made to slaves, you’re wives and daughters raped and sold
Money and fear have made their claim
Bring about the apocalypse, a better option than giving into fear
All will cease to exist
In a fight to the death the god of war will be raped of his immortality
Fight my way from the inside out, peace will exist when everything is gone
All hail the new god of war, worship with an unshakeable will
Confidence is gained by fear; I have no doubt in my disbelief
You’re waving the white flag, torn in the face of defeat but never can we retreat
The bells of war are ringing without an army to fight for our cause
My life will cease to exist
Darkness rains over the battlefield, my heart aches at the memories of those who I won’t see again
I know that this is my final breath and I will face it with all of my strength
Peace will exist when I am gone
I will not give into fear

12. Felony

We sacrificed everything because there’s nothing more that we can lose
Bliss through ignorance when there is everything that we can gain
My heart dropped when you opened your mouth, I need an antidote of goodwill
If this is all you stand for, this is all that I fucking have
And I swear to you that I’ll keep it true through the darkness of night
Lines after line, time after time, carry me on until the dawn breaks
Lives lost – My rent is payable on death
So cold – Feel the burn of my broken heart
Lives lost – You were robbed from us before your time was up
So cold – Feel the burn of my broken heart
I remember your apartment infested with flies, getting so fucked up we couldn’t walk
Making fun of your edge tattoos, this never should have happened
Don’t worry about the bike you lost, or my dad’s CSNY record
We should have shared the road like brothers, this wasn’t supposed to happen
I miss you more and more every day, you were freer than I’ll ever be
We should have shared the road like brothers, this wasn’t supposed to happen
“Hello my friend, it looks like I’ll never see you again
We lost touch so long ago; you never had a phone or a permanent address
You had a heart of gold, you’ll stay young forever, and you’ll never grow old
You’ll never hear this song, but know this song is my goodbye to you”

13. Linear Existence

Repeat a circle of defeat, no home to fall in retreat
Soldier on for a lost cause – no benefit, nothing to believe in
This song is a battleground, everyone speaks and no one listens
Bear your burdens on a confidant; expect a handout or a hefty reward
No thought for the children, no thought for the future
No care for a safety net, the lights go out and we lack reason
Let’s pretend like nothing happened
I don’t belong

14. Consequence

Nothing is sacred and nothing is free
Everyone is feared and no one is left to be
Suffering the truth of our hypocrisy
Some walk through life and never see the sea
Forced to live a stagnant life never living up to your dreams
The consequence will be what the consequence will be
Forced to live a stagnant life never living up to your dreams
The consequence will be what the consequence will be

15. Live Low (bonus track)

Fuck you, fuck you, fuck you forever
I don’t care who you are, what you’ve done or what you’re gonna do
Fuck you, fuck you, fuck you forever
You live by the label never lead by example
Live life low
Live life low
Live life low
Live life low
You ask me how I’m doing, you ask me where I’ve been
I fake a smile and tell you everything’s alright
What do you expect when you give up nothing and you work for nothing?
No hope, no hope, no fucking handouts, no hefty rewards
We choke, we choke, we choke on the live we make
No hope, no hope, no fucking handouts, no hefty rewards

16. Mortal Enemy (bonus track)

What is left to be said when everyone has said it before?
Originality is no excuse when I’ve already heard it before
What is left to be said when being yourself is a sin
There’s nothing left to lose, this race has a bitter end
I don’t see a reason to believe the lie
Alienation is the battle cry
I don’t need to be a different person to the people I love or to the people I loathe
False smiles and fake handshakes, is that all I deserve because that all I get
When we were kids we shared the same fate
But as adults life gets in the way
Your new life is my mortal enemy
Your new life is my mortal enemy
Mortal enemy
