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

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

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…

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

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

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

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

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
