Paroles

Glass

(Kristin Hersh)

is this witchy?
my thoughts are cloudy
this is weird: my mind is clear

in this hyper-chlorinated pool of humanity
you're very clean

i give up

is this hunger?
i can't remember
this is strange: we're just the same

in this insatiable, unstable subspecies
you're very sweet

i give up

flies woke up, confused
sprung to life
and spring all here and everything

sleeping on the kitchen couch
sun everywhere
you're very clear

i give up

why put the light on?
why put the light at all?

 

Around dusk

(Krsitin Hersh)

around dusk
you walk the seven blocks to paradise
and throw your arms around it
part of the cattle call to harmony
at dawn it breaks
but much too late to wreck the night
we spun a silken effort
wrapping the day in softer company
my favorite distant sadist
the acid test tangle
face to face
under the lights
whatever it takes to kill me off
and throw your arms around me
wrapping the night in ugly harmony
Around

Snow falling

(Texte "Bamboo" écrit par Kristin Hersh
Jamais enregistré officielement)

Snow flying
Bamboo dancing
You coughed up this month
The light changing
Undulating
Us all swell and born
It's extra ordinary
It's extra ordinary (it's extra ordinary)
It's extra ordinary (it's extra ordinary)
It's extra ordinary (it's extra ordinary)

 

Rubidoux

(Kristin Hersh)

the freeway’s freeway close
i laugh from the back
the race is over
headlights on your teeth
race down both your backs
in the dark blue car
a party
blue trash on the floor
i hope you find your hunger
in a hungry world

 

Flooding

(Kristin Hersh)

I can pinpoint the moment you closed your eyes
and said yes to the flooding

Like melting you shrugged off the clothes of your life and, well,
i hope you remind me it's here

At twice the speed hungering for someone who left in half the time

Fuzzy fumbling that thirst is gone we're alone

A parking lot plea begging for a future you need

Elizabeth June

(Kristin Hersh)

the ground’s on fire
the ground’s on fire
and so are you
god left you here, too

you could call for rain
you could call for rain
your new moguls: trees
some full
some lonely
both help you think

i’m sorry
and you were right
it was okay
to be scared

 

Morning birds

(Kristin Hersh)

(i couldn’t sleep anyway
the hole you left is full of rain)

morning birds screamed all night
if there was just a little light left
something to grow into panic

homeless
coming home
i could not stop moving
now i can’t move
i miss you
i bet i take this lying down

you know it’d be a justified sin
you know it’d be clean
you know it’d be purifying
you know it’d be clean

morning birds screamed all night
if there was just a little fright left
something to grow into panic

homeless
coming home
i could not stop moving
now i can’t move
i miss you

Crooked

(Kristin Hersh)

hold the flashlight under your chin
closer as the lights dim

you lonely doll
you lucky dog
you free fall
down to the living room
closer as the lights dim

spread the glitter on your pillow
count your blessings on your fingers
crawl your way back down the stairs
down to the living room
closer as the lights dim

glittering
in lazy boys and christmas lights
glittering
then found a dark body
to the right and crooked

Mississippi Kite

(Kristin Hersh)

you paint your own tv on the wall
carve out insects to feed us all
lights ash by and the fast world echoes your thoughts
your compass led you to the edge of a lake
you’ll singe your nuts down there if you take
such bad advice from the love gods of hate
you’ll get cold
you get burned, you get cold
on the plush green rug in the lime green light
eyes like white stones in black light
i promise you everything that you like
i go “mississippi kite”
gloss assails us then dims
comic book nights, la grim
the hollywood martians, lucky stiffs, fucking win
you told me enough times you can’t give me enough rope
to hang myself one time, but I can always hope
you come down on me so hard that I choke and go
you get burned, you get cold
meanwhile, I feed you boric acid and air
lemon drops, snow cream, speckled eggs
the sweat seeps in through a crack in your head
you go “mississippi kite”

Moan

(Kristin Hersh)

in the deep cold
you can’t be brave
in the deep cold
you can’t be safe
when the wind blows
you can’t be strong
when the wind blows
you won’t be strong
blows with a spine chilling
moan
let’s drink to each other
and drink each other half to death
i’m jumping out of my skin
i’m jumping out of my skin again

Coals

(Kristin Hersh)

shrug off this wretched event
stoic, detached, you relent
you wonder why
we crash but don't land

how a purring engine sputters
like these coals that never cooled
why we crash but don't land

you heated even the mist
around this mossy existence
we never found
cold, gray, calm, dead

it's how a purring engine sputters
like these coals that never cooled
why we crash but don't land

a ramble, a rant
a ramble, a rant
a fairy tale
remorseless and serene

 

Fortune

(Kristin Hersh)

i left you cracking up in the east river
like some river devil
both cruel and unusual
thick with gold and smoking
my friend
under the wire again
and by the way
you cost a fortune
and by the way
you cast a shadow today
i watched you crawling up through the leaf litter
you don't seem to need to breathe
unlike us oily, imsy, cheap
thick with wonder bread
my friend
under the weather again

2009 – Electric Stories

Franck Mouzon - 2008 - Electric Stories

Un album, pour lequel j'ai écarté les solutions toutes faites, j'ai donc programmé tous les sons de synthé (ou machines virtuelles), les rythmes, et inventé de nouveaux bidouillages sonores.

J'ai voulu aussi plus d'émotions, mais quoi de plus difficile à partager... avec seulement quelques notes.

Un album différent aussi, grâce à la voix formidable de "Kristin Hersh", chanteuse du groupe américain "The Throwing Muses".

La voix de Kristin Hersh sur les titres "Moan", "Fortune" et "Around Dusk" est publiée sous licence "Creative Commons Attribution Non commercial (3.0)".
