about

Shoefiti Paris, France

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 includes musicians sweating on stage, a singer that doesn't hesitate to go down in the crowd and shoes being flung accross the venue. ... more

Track Name: Complicated Minds (live Ozark Lake)
To all you complicated minds
The gap isn’t so wide.
My nerves are blind
Mute on 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 rocks at my window
I’m surrounded by my shadow.
I’m just a sucker down on my knees
Begging please 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 see the words falling right
Cause I’m falling 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 (live Grand Canyon)
I remember the room in the attic
And the view on the streets
Like kids with tiny 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 (live Castille Elementary School)
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, chimical 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: Mister Sleeping Bag Man (live Saint Louis)
Mister Sleeping Bag Man
I’ve got a sandwich and stew.
Why won’t you wake up
And smile to the meal I made for you.
I read you were begging from your hunger.

But my dad just mocks you down
With a slight 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
When you wake up

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 (live Monument Valley)
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 the same

And in the noise
A silence is louder than the canon
Track Name: Venice it was Nothing (live Route 66 Motel)
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 a glance to 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 a glance to 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: (Useless) So Far (live Palo Duro Canyon)
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…
