about

Produced, Composed, Recorded & Performed by
Nicolas "Traumatisme" Tifagne

THIS ALBUM IS TOTAL D.I.Y.
It was recorded at home with nothing more than a guitar,
a bass guitar, old keyboards, a computer
and inexperienced vocal chords with a bad French accent.
Please be very indulgent and open-minded while listening.
If not, please listen to something else and/or go to hell.
YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!

Track Name: Crown Of The Clown
Everybody needs a destination
Everybody has a private hell
Everybody's got a retribution
Everybody has a cross to bear

This is my wake-up call
I have my back to the wall
There's no alternative
It's me against the world

I’m not going down
I’m not going down, down
Got the crown of the clown
If I hit the ground
I won't let myself drown
Got the crown of the clown

Everyone is seeking recognition
Everyone is trying to survive
Everyone is facing isolation
But heavy is the head that wears the crown

And life goes on they say
War is over if you want it
But in the end we all live to die another day

I’m not going down
I’m not going down, down
Got the crown of the clown
If I hit the ground
I won't let myself drown
Because I got the crown of the clown

Open my eyes and free my mind
From the chains I myself tied
Heads I live
Tails I die
Life I give it one more try
Fall seven times and stand up eight
I still haven't sealed my fate
I'll do my best
I am not perfect
'Cause I'm only human
Track Name: Fun In Funeral
What a life it is to fight against the clock
All those years living under a rock
Disconnected and going through the motions

I admit I've been sleepwalking all the while
Feeling like I was buried alive
I just needed an internal commotion

And it was no morbid attraction
I'm not obsessed with the deceased
I had to overcome the fear of death so I begin to live

I put the fun in funeral
And the fun put the funeral in me
I put the fun in funeral
Before I put the nail in the coffin

Dig it up!

Still not settled on making the choice to fry
Or to be worm food deep under the ground
I'm not ready to take this grand decision

I'm sick and tired of watching every minute fly
Vegetating and paralyzed
I needed something to provoke a reaction

It was a required revelation
'Cause tomorrow is not promised
And I can't sacrifice my time in vain by waiting in the wings

I put the fun in funeral
And the fun put the funeral in me
I put the fun in funeral
Before I put the nail in the coffin
It took a while to realize we're all gonna die someday
While we still can in the meantime
Raise our glass and celebrate

It's a wonderful life
Don't waste precious time
We all only live once
And later won't wait
I don't wanna have regrets
Track Name: Ghoul Next Door
I am an alien
With a price on my head
The local aberration
I'm an anomaly
In the normality
A victim of perception
But I love what I see

And I won't listen when they say
I'm heading to the wrong direction
And I'm doing things my way
And I don't need their absolution
And when I'm feeling low
I try to remind myself
I'd better be alone than being with someone else

Now I am strong enough and you can't break me
Proud enough and you can't change me
Far enough and I won't turn back no more

They dismiss the unknown
But we're all flesh and bones
It's just misguided opinion
But I used to see me through their eyes
Taking my power away by sitting still and cry
I was not what I aimed to be

But I won't listen when they say
I'm heading to the wrong direction
And I'm doing things my way
And I don't need their absolution
And when I'm feeling low
I gotta remind myself
I'd better be my own than being like someone else

Now I am strong enough and you can't break me
Proud enough and you can't change me
Far enough and I won't turn back no more
Now I am wise enough and you can judge me
Dry enough and you can hate me
All in all I'm just the ghoul next door
And I love what I see

I am my own self creation
But you made me what I am
I'm making my own decisions
I don't have to make amends
I'd rather live in seclusion
And to live up to my name
I'm not in need of salvation
Track Name: Premature Burial
I forgive myself today
And all the things that I've done wrong
I let them flow

I have no regrets today
The memories that drag me down
I let them go

All I ever wanted was to be happy with myself
And all the broken pieces I lay them all down to rest

Loving myself is a daily trial when I see my reflection in the mirror

I accept my past today
And all the scars that made me strong
I let them show

I'm starting over today
And all the flaws that make me proud
I let them glow

All I ever wanted was to be happy with myself
And all the broken pieces I lay them all down to rest

Loving myself is a daily trial when I see my reflection in the mirror
Loving myself is my only salvation from a premature burial

I'm wide awake and I can't believe my eyes
It wasn't planned
it just came to me as a surprise
When all these years I was feeling dead inside
It was all up to me to think and realize
I wanna be alive
Track Name: Army Of Me
Beaten down, mocked and ignored
Humiliated to the core
I will never take this anymore
Feeling like I don't belong
I will show them they're all wrong
I hold my breath and put my helmet on

Better beware
Eyes everywhere

As I walk
I keep my head high
I feel like I'm conquering the world
I'm ready to fight
Ready to kill

Once I was invisible
Now I feel invincble
I just have to remember who I am
And I am
Now I'll move on with my life
I have other fish to fry
But I won't ever take no harm from them
Not again

Better beware
Eyes everywhere

As I walk
I keep my head high
I feel like I'm conquering the world
I'm ready to fight
Ready to kill
It's my war and it's do or die
I'll prove the world I'm a champion
Together as one
An army of me

Better beware
Dead bodies everywhere
Better beware
But why should, why should I care
Track Name: Doom Service
The sun is shining in my eye view
It makes me sad and blue
Looks like a pattern for the next day or two
It's no problem
Then comes unwanted introspection
Causing some confusion
Making me lose sight of all kinds of reason
It's unwelcome

Knock knock
Don't answer the door
The doom service's coming back for more
Knock knock
Don't answer the door
I will not take this anymore
I've been to hell before

A case of history repeating
The mind's a fragile thing
But I survived so far then again I will
It's my mantra
I faced my thoughts alone for so long
I'll tame them like lions
There is no way I let them cause more friction
No more drama

Knock knock
Don't answer the door
The doom service's coming back for more
Knock knocK
Don't answer the door
I will not take this anymore

And when the walls start to crumble
I gotta foresee the trouble
I won't let them pop my bubble
Track Name: Necessary Evil
Heavy heart and sore throat from the sorrow made me understand
It's impossible to make a rainbow without a little rain
Happiness is not a destination, it's a way of thinking
It's all up to me to find the wisdom to battle all my fears

When there is a will, there is a way
When there is no pain, there is no gain
Life is a game that I wanna play

I'm glad I've known the suffering
Now I can fight the chaos of the mind
And vainquish it with a smile

All the things that ever happened to me happened for a reason
It's not about what I want but what I need, no regrets just lessons
Those who hated, those who betrayed and those who brutalized
And the promises left unmet were blessings in disguise

I turn the negative into positive
I take my nightmares and I make them dreams
The planets align 'cause I chose to live

I'm glad I've known the suffering
Now I can fight the chaos of the mind
And vainquish it with a smile
Now I know there's a crack in everything
But this is how the light gets in
It's necessary evil

I'm down to earth with my mind on Mars
My feet on the ground and my head in the stars
Headed to the future without dragging my past
I used to be broken but I'm rebuilt at last
Now I am alone but I'm alive
I'm taking life one day at a time
I might walk slowly but I never look back
Track Name: Melody Magic
There was a time when my will had gone astray
The peace of mind seemed so far away
No desire left to stay
I was ready for the last ride of my life
To spread my wings towards the sky
Forever and always

But something inside me told me
I had so much more to give
I had to try and hold on to my one reason to live

When comes the sound of death knell
Is when the music casts its spell
When I get out of tune
I think of all I've been through
The only light I see is melody magic

On some days my mind gets caught in bitterness
All feels so futile and useless
Even my unfinished business
But I know whatever happens down the road
There is one thing that conforts my soul
A place I can call home

Something inside me tells me
I have so much more to give
I just have to try and hold on to my one reason to live

When comes the sound of death knell
Is when the music casts its spell
When I get out of tune
I think of all I've been through
I find the strenght to carry on
From the power of a song
And if it wasn't for this
I wouldn't want to exist

When life keeps changing
I go through uncertain times
At least I have one dream
One pride that makes me rise and shine
And this is my only lifeline

And when comes the time
To finally say goodbye
At least I know that I have lived
With something to believe in

But not today
No, not today
No I won't die today
