Solène BREYSSE The Great Riot: l'album qui correspond à mes attentes musicales ! Ce n'est pas un album commun, c'est un album créatif! aucune des pistes se ressemble avec comme support le souci - le plaisir - de la recherche musicale. Et puis il y a cette voix; un brin éraillée / un brin désenchantée qui vient comme une caresse ... je recommande. Favorite track: Frozen.

Track Name: City/Heart/Choir
City/Heart/Choir

Wild, we used to be so wild
Now it’s so quiet, quiet, quiet,
Nothing but an empty choir
A wall of memories on fire, fire, fire
A new set for the future, future, future
Somehow, we’ll make it easier, easier, easier
Dream of something better, better, better
That’s all we got now

Run to a place where the head of states
Won’t impact your state of mind
So you won’t impact mine, impact mine, impact mine
If this city ain’t good enough, good enough, good enough,
Then leave it, and fuck off, and fuck off, and fuck off,

Fine, you will be fine now,
You’re in safe hands, you’re in mine
Track Name: Young Brains
Young Brains


Baby brain, sucking your thumb
Have some rest now, you’re still too young
We’ll trade your dreams for factories
Erase and rewind your memories
Baby brain is growing old
He has been bought and has been sold
Believe in us in who are
Believe in us we’ll take you far

Everybody is running in circles
Spinning round and round
One by one we fall
So many and heavy on this same old ground

Baby brain, sucking your thumb
Have some rest now, you’re still too young
We’ll trade your dreams for factories
Erase and rewind your memories
Baby brain is out of the mold
He has forgotten what he’s been told
Believe in us in who are
Believe in us we’ll take you far

Everybody is running in circles
Spinning round and round
One by one we fall
So many and heavy on this same old ground

Everybody is running in circles
Spinning round and round
One by one we fall
So many and lonely on this same old ground

I guess we’re just growing old

Everybody’s doing what you should be doing too
Track Name: Pigeons & Rats
Pigeons & Rats


Cold, cold day in the city of love
I’m giving all I have but it’s not enough
Half asleep and out of touch
I’m feeling like a skinny fish in a tiny box

Caught between the pigeons and the rats
In the town of Vuitton and Coco Chanel
Lost within the pigeons and the rats
You don’t give a shit so fuck you Mademoiselle
Cold, cold day in the city of love
I’m giving all I have but it’s not enough
Half asleep and out of touch
I’m feeling like a skinny fish in a tiny box

Caught between the pigeons and the rats
In the town of Vuitton and Coco Chanel
Lost within the pigeons and the rats
You don’t give a shit so fuck you Mademoiselle

Cold, cold day in the fashion city
There’s a girl called Lily, she’s an indie mess
Those red red lips around her yellow teeth
Try to cover she’s a Café waitress

She went as grey as the sky
Grey as the city tile
Grey as the sky, grey, grey, grey, grey

Caught between the pigeons and the rats
In the town of Vuitton and Coco Chanel
Lost within the pigeons and the rats
You don’t give a shit so fuck you Mademoiselle
Track Name: Maryline
Maryline


Oh Maryline, I don’t know where you’ve been
During the last 3 years since we’ve last met
And mysteries, like some secrets in the sea
Are being revealed and scare my little heart

Runaway, don’t you run away from here
The world outside is full of battlefields
Your strawberry, strawberry marmelade taste
Is getting sour and going to waste

Thanks to you, I finally find the C
I still remember the way your fingers bleed
It’s the kind of things hard to say face to face,Maryline
The kind of words, better told with a bottle

Oh Maryline, I don’t know where you’ve been
During the last 3 years since we’ve last met
Track Name: Cigarette / WTF?
Cigarette / WTF?


The spark in the dark is the light of your cigarette

Quick love, quick sands, quick life, quicksands

Dishes, taxes, selfish selfie I say “What the fuck?”, “What the fuck?”,
Lonely blues, non stop news, I say “What the fuck?”, “What the fuck?”,
The love’s gone, the money’s gone, don’t know where, don’t know why, “Why the fuck?”, “Why the fuck?”
You’re not here, here come the fear, I say “What the fuck happened here?”,

The spark in the dark is the light of your cigarette

The spark in the park, the spark in your heart
Cigarette, Cigarette, Cigarette,
The spark in the house, The spark in the hall The spark in the night
Cigarette, Cigarette, Cigarette,
Track Name: Second Best
Second Best


Suffer well my darling
Suffer well my darling,
Till the next my darling
A second best my darling

Cause the moonlight cast no shadow
Yes the moonlight reveals and shows
All the bad plans behind your back
Well, I’m afraid they’re gonna crack

Suffer well my darling
Suffer well my darling,
Till the next my darling
A second best my darling

A spy in your bedroom, a spider on your spine
A spy in your bedroom, a spider on your spine
And we’re running out of time
And I’m afraid that yours has come
Yes we’re running out of time
And I’m afraid that yours has come to

Suffer well my darling
Suffer well my darling,
Till the next my darling
A second best my darling

Cause the moonlight cast no shadow
Track Name: Riot
Riot


There’s something in between
Between you and me
The storm is not over, let’s wake the monsters
Time’s running out, patience ‘s fading out
Let’s sing that song
It won’t take too long, It won’t take too long,

Things are not the same
Where’s your bloody smile now?
Come in unmasked
Open up your heart and talk

Cause the unpaid bills are waiting
I stand here, I keep on singing
I cannot wait for a brand new you
There’s nothing I or we could do
But I predict something bigger
Giant shows and perfect weather
No politics, no fashion freaks
If no one speaks then no one lies
This is the great riot baby
Come outside and don’t say maybe
Is there a place in your heart
Where love is blind and over pride?

There’s nothing in between
Track Name: Drones of love
Drones of love

Brave, that’s what you are
And you my superstar
I won’t heal your scars
Love is at the bar

The drones of love are on the way
The drones of love are here to stay

Why? Why do you look so sad?
I know your TV’s dead
But you shouldn’t be afraid
No one should ever be cause

The drones of love are on the way
The drones of love are here to stay
Track Name: Frozen
Frozen


Frozen, I’m frozen, I’m frozen tonight
Don’t worry oh Mary, I’m frozen tonight

Paralyzed on my side, I won’t bother you
Crystallized like the stars, I won’t stalk you too

Frozen, I’m frozen, I’m frozen tonight
Don’t worry oh Mary, I’m frozen tonight

Our secrets in a bottle in the sea
Track Name: Knives
Knives


Something for someone somewhere
I can feel it in the air
Like an alarm unused for years
You were too used to silence

Do we have to pay right now?
Is there something I should have known?
Maybe it’s too soon, maybe it’s too late
So keep the knives beneath your bed

How do you want to fight
When they kick you in the teeth?
How can you say it’s alright, where you’re always at their feet?

Do we have to pay right now?
Is there something I should have done?
Maybe it’s too soon, maybe it’s too late
So keep the knives beneath your bed

There’s a dragon in your garden
There’s a fire in the sky tonight
I wonder if I was dreaming
There’s a fire in the sky tonight
Track Name: Lettuce Heart
Lettuce Heart


Tell me, tell me that you laud me
Then let me go, let me go
It’s so hard, hard to believe that you could anything
And let me go

Sorry, don’t tell me that you’re sorry
You ate my lettuce heart, babe you got it all
