about

Shoefiti Paris

Inspired by the nineties indie rock scene, Shoefiti blends bright melodies and bursts of noisy harmonic frictions, adding a modern fuzzy sound to the whole. The live performance include people sweating on stage, a singer going down in the crowd to make it dance and a smiling drummer. ... more

Track Name: Complicated Minds
To all you complicated minds
The gap isn’t so wide
My nerves are blind
Mute for a second: “what side?”

To all you special souls
I am special too
Astonished by the pools
Taking pictures for you

No one's throwing stones at my window
I’m surrounded by my shadow
I’m just a poor guy down on my knees
Begging you, so easy to please

Some of your ears
Might bleed in fear
It’s your inside stabbing
Therefore blame me for nothing

I'll never hear the words sounding right
Cause I’m sinking failure
They might catch me up some night
When I hit the ground
I’ve just hit the ground
Track Name: Memories of the Attic
I remember the room in the attic
And the view on the streets
The lights of the factory amazing our sleep
Like kids with wide eyes
Surprised by what we did not know

You were naked in the corridor
Surprised, laughing with my grand-mother
Blushing, sneaking into my parents’ bed
"Warm up my feet." They’re cold, I don’t care: today is special

Once upon a boy, he became a man
But still had loads to understand
Once upon a boy, he became a man
But still had loads to understand

Fireworks were cracking in the warm summer streets
Night had come time to slip out music covering the sounds of my feet
Don’t walk on the rug ‘cause we never know
If someone’s awake in the silent shadow
Track Name: 1989
Looking down, nineteen eighty-nine
Was a kid with an empty pocket mind
Stripped shirts on my back
Making up the summer laws that made him ride my bike

I ain’t sleeping inside
I ain’t sleeping inside

The sounds of the playground
Now I’ve grown too old, they will never be found
The ears above four feet from the ground
Chewing on some gum, artificial smell when time was blond

I ain’t sleeping inside
I ain’t sleeping inside
I ain’t sleeping inside
I ain’t sleeping inside
Sleeping inside, sleeping inside…

Let me breath
Let me breath
Let me breath
Let me breath…
Track Name: Venice, it was Nothing
One day I woke up early, for my wedding
She was pregnant: what could I do? I offered her a ring
Her father was in the army: don’t mess with this Viking
But who cares? I was in love… until the next morning

“Travel around the world” they said
“For your honey moon”
Then I could only spell four words:
“Will this end soon?”

For glancing at a girl I got slapped in Tokyo
She ignored me until we got to Moscow
I was begging please in Tunisia and Morocco
And I thought the worst had past but compared to Venice it was nothing

On a hot and steamy night I woke up in the bed
I was alone: where could she be? I checked in the lobby
I must have opened the wrong door ‘cause I heard some sex noises
But suddenly: “horror!” My love was banging our host!

“Travel around the world” they said
“For your honey moon”
Then I could only spell four words:
“Will this end soon?”

For glancing at a girl I got slapped in Tokyo
She ignored me until we got to Moscow
I was begging please in Tunisia and Morocco
And I thought the worst had past but compared to Venice it was nothing
Compared to Venice it was nothing
Compared to Venice it was nothing
Track Name: Mr Sleeping Bag Man
Mister Sleeping Bag Man
I’ve got a sandwich and stew.
Why won’t you wake up
And smile at the meal I made for you.
I read you were begging out of hunger.

But my dad just puts you down
With a light laughter:
“Pop out a bottle of wine
Then he’ll wake up for sure”.
Mister Sleeping Bag Man
I’ll leave the food just here
So you can grab it
From your dreamy tipsy sleep

Nowadays, I remember when sometimes I think I’m in need and I'm begging
When all I need is sleep
When all I need is sleep
Track Name: Nothing Changes
When you look at the dog
More than the man
The coin you drop
In the old wrinkled hand

Nothing changes
Nothing changes
Everybody
Remains

Whoever you vote for
If one day you saved…
You might hold the door
For a prick with no name

Nothing changes
Nothing changes
Everybody
Remains the same
Nothing changes
Nothing changes
Everybody
Remains

And in the noise a silence is louder than the canon
Track Name: So Far
I’ll burn the flag
If I have to
I’ll sacrifice
If it’d change everything... at once

I’ll ruin my life
To blow it away
I’d give my heart
If not in vain… in vain

I’m losing my mind
Thinking about it
Unsatisfied
With what I’ve done… so far

So far, so far

I am nothing, I cannot trade my life for sins
Just awake, bloody alive, useless so far
No time to hide, hit and survive, I’m breaking loose
Just awake, bloody alive, useless so far
So far

I am nothing, I cannot trade my life for sins
Just awake, bloody alive, useless so far
No time to hide, hit and survive, I’m breaking loose
Just awake, bloody alive, useless so far
So far, so far, so far
