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: We Are What We Are
I was a teenage Frankenstein
I have been improvising since I came to life
I was always one of a kind
Pieces of my mind were found in an old garbage can

No no no!
I ain't got no brainstorming disorder
Yeah yeah yeah!
My head is a rollercoaster

They say weird is negative when you are on the inside
But we are what we are
I say weird is relative when you are on the outside
Because two heads are better than one

I have got spider webs inside my soul
Woven to both sides of my anxiety
It is all for me and one for all
Because I have many manes but many more identities

No no no!
The vicious circle never ends
Yeah yeah yeah!
Tonight I will be somebody else

They say weird is negative when you are on the inside
But we are what we are
I say weird is relative when you are on the outside
Because two heads are better than one

I eat phobia for breakfast
Paranoia for lunch
Schizophrenia for dinner
I keep my insanity fed
I throw it up and go to bed

No no no!
I'm not a raving lunatic
Yeah yeah yeah!
But if we are we are loving it
Track Name: Terror Vision
Hey! Have you ever dreamed of being the big next thing?
Hey! Don't you wanna be the king of the silver screen?
You wanna see the other side
So take a seat and watch
What you will see will blow your mind

Now here I am
Your brand new friend
Sit back and let me take command
Just be carefree
You can trust me
I will show you things you have never seen
It is the chance of your life
It won't happen twice
You can never have another slice

I am your terror vision
Blowing up your video
It's a sick world of zombies
You are my little puppet till I fade to black

Here today and gone tomorrow
Like a shooting star
Be careful what you wish for
You might go too far
You wanna be somebody too
Just let your body talk
And I will see what I can do

Come and turn me on
You have waited so long
I will penetrate your soul to the bone
You are down on your knees
You do what I please
And you never miss a drop of it
You are remote-controlled
You swallow me whole
And I fulfill your bottomless hole

I am your terror vision
Blowing up your video
It's a sick world of zombies
Welcome to my private show
I will take you somewhere beyond the rainbow
And you will drown among the pack
You are my little puppet till I fade to black

I will swallow you in and I will swallow you out
And when I'm done with you I will beat you to the ground
You're just one in a million I have marked with my wound
Do you remember hearing your one-day-old heroes on the radio?
It was a long time ago
Track Name: Prettiest Boy In The Morgue
Long-haired and pale white-skinned
With my horns up I'm dressed to kill
I'm gonna make my revolution
Last night I have sold my soul
To all the gods of rock and roll
I only want their absolution

Finally I will spread my wings
I will fly among my fallen kings
I am a loser but I will win
This is where it all begins

I will be the prettiest boy in the morgue
I'm gonna live my dreams
I will drown in dollar bills
I will be the prettiest boy in the morgue
I will be your lollipop
Someday I will make it to the top

All the kids on the streets
I will treat them all with all my tricks
They want nothing but a ghoul time
And when one day I will be rich
I will hold them all on a silver leash
And I won't give them a dime

When there is a will there is a way
Who dares wins - that is what they say
I will do anything it takes
Against the world I will stand

I will be the prettiest boy in the morgue
With mascara and lipstick
I will be the cream of the creep
I will be the prettiest boy in the morgue
All the rebels will yell
Until I give them a proper farewell

I will be your teenage poster boy
The angry youth will be my toy
I will sell them lots of hate
I know they just can't wait
Let's sing this anthem till we drop
Dead!

Remember what the wise man said
Rock and roll leads you straight to hell
But we will all bite the dust someday
The grim reaper is gonna wait
Track Name: The Jestermaster
It is just another day
My jingle bells are ringing all the way
The curtain falls
And I'm wearing a mask for everyone

I am the clown
I have learned to smile when my world is coming down
I will entertain
Life is nothing more than a good game

I have rolled the dice and could not roll it twice
And all the king's men scream my name in laughter
From the hereafter

I'm Comedy
When the tears are falling I am laughing
I'm Tragedy
When the horns are playing I am crying
Duality
Hand in hand together we are one
Heads I live tails I die
I have painted my heart and soul in black and white

My heart is a spade
I play my part in this theatre of pain
With all my lies
I became the master of disguise

I am the fool
You are the kings and I live up to your rules
But I'm not the mime
I am the wasp among the flies

I have dealt the cards
I will send you my regards
And all the king's men scream my name in laughter
From the hereafter

I'm Comedy
When the tears are falling I am laughing
I'm Tragedy
When the horns are playing I am crying
Duality
Hand in hand together we are one
Heads I live tails I die

I hold my hands up to the sky
Will I get an answer in time?

I sing the soundtrack of my soap opera
Half sitcom and half drama
When come the end credits
Will another season be broadcast on TV?
Is there a four-leaf clover in the hands of destiny?
Track Name: Redrum Asylum
Ever since I was a young man
I have locked myself far from the human hell
But there is something in the basement
The phantoms living there are on the hunt

Rolling over and playing dead
Wreaking havoc inside my head
There is a party deep down where there is no sun
And it is no fun without a gun

Redrum Asylum
I'm locked inside the Redrum Asylum
I can't get out of the Redrum Asylum
I'm breaking down
I'm quiet in my room tonight

In my dark place I stand alone
My jaded heart has turned into a stone
Wailing for the curtain to fall
I'm waiting in the wings
My time will come

I go mental inside these walls
No one listens to my silent calls
Buried alive in my tomb sweet tomb I age
Every prison is not a cage

Redrum Asylum
I'm locked inside the Redrum Asylum
I can't get out of the Redrum Asylum
I'm breaking down
I'm quiet in my room

I'm tired but I can't sleep
I can't eat
They have locked the only exit
I have the key but a demon is hiding underneath
Madness here madness there
There is madness everywhere
I don't fear but instead
I'd give my life to be dead

Everybody has left this place
And I am the only one left
They are so far now
They don't look back
They have found their way
And I can't reach them anymore

It's over there is not a thing I can do
I do what the little voices tell me to
There is no light coming through
This ain't no room with a view
And while I'm thinking of yore
I hear you banging on the door
The time you are there with the cure
I'm laying cold on the floor
Track Name: Creature Feature
I was alone and miserable
I was talking to my bedroom walls
I was under lock and key at home
I never had someone to call my own
Somebody in my head used to come up and tell
"If you can't have friends, make one"
Now here I am waiting for a strike of lightening
To bring this dead body to life

My own little monster
The one who holds me
My hand-made blood brother
You will forever be with me
My own little monster
You are my only friend
I am your creature feature
And we belong together till the world ends

With these hands i am making a hunk
Who will not run away from me
He will dance for me in underwear
Just like in my wildest fantasies
And when comes the night between his sewed arms
He will make me feel like a child
He will lay my body down between his decaying legs
Just to make me feel like a man

My own little monster
The one who holds me
My hand-made blood brother
You will forever be with me
My own little monster
You are my only friend
I am your creature feature
And we belong together till the world ends

All I ever wanted was to be loved by someone
To feel your cold hand in mine
But you are not awaking
You were just a dream

With my own eyes now you can see
Don't be afraid it is only me
Track Name: Glen Or Glenda?
Oh Mother Madness
How do I look through your eyes?
You pull the strings and I'm a monster in disguise
When I was seeking for a bit of tenderness
You kept me in the dark like a well-guarded secret

Oh Father Sadness
Am I meaty as you are?
Can't say myself since I am hiding behind the scars
You are the hand that feeds but you are scaring me to death
While you are drowning in the bottle
I am waiting for your last breath

And you say

(Mother Madness)
"Oh Glen, you have always been such a fright
All alone and dressed in black
You are misanthropic"

(Father Sadness)
"Oh Glenda, wipe that painting off your face
Your hair is such a disgrace
Shame on you my girl"

Pretty on pictures like a happy family
I hide my smile behind a row of broken teeth
You put some make-up on to cover up the spots
And always the show must go on no matter what

And I don't know what I am
A boy, a girl or a man?
I'd like to be all but I can't
And when I'm awake in my bed
I hear what you are saying

(Mother Madness)
"Oh Glen, there are names for boys like you
They are all gonna laugh at you
You sick little thing"

(Father Sadness)
"Oh Glenda, you are all wet and drenched in blood
You name is written in the mud
You ain't that pretty"

My toys are broken
My mind is shattered
I'm seeing red

I only wanted to be an eye candy
But the whole town is out hunting the black sheep
I'm in the death row
The flames are burning at my feet

(Mother Madness)
"Oh Glen, now you have swallowed your pride
And you will have nothing to hide
When you are six feet under"

(Father Sadness)
"Oh Glenda, you ate all your fingernails
Nailed on the cross in your dress
We are setting you on fire"
Track Name: Sunglasses At Midnight
Hey boy - you got the look that kills
You give everyone shaking chills
Walking in the streets with an evil grin
But something is missing

Are you having a bad hair day?
Why don't you put a smile on that face?
And again you disappear without a trace
Yeah something is missing

We don't know what your name is
We don't know what is your disease
You don't believe in fairy tales
And you are biting your own tail

Nobody knows what is on your mind
Nobody sees what is deep inside
Because you are hiding behind those sunglasses at midnight

The sun is shining in the sky
The light is burning your eyes
And like a vampire you lay in your grave
But look who is sneering

You show up and it is a merry-gore-round
But your brain is nowhere to be found
You are just a shadow among the glimmer slaves
Oh look who is sneering

We don't know what is the real you
We can't see what is going through
You don't face the world in the eyes
And now you have become blind

Nobody knows what is on your mind
Nobody sees what is deep inside
Because you are hiding behind those sunglasses at midnight
Nobody tries to break the shell
Nobody wants you as a friend
Because you are fading behind those sunglasses at midnight

And we don't care if you behave L.A.M.F.
And what does that spell?
Like a monster freak
You are just a faceless nightmare

Look what you have done to yourself
You can't rewind it is too late
We are all going to pass you by
But remember tears don't lie
Track Name: He Wolf
In the daylight he walks among us
But there is someone else deep inside
Who is just hiding in the closet
And hardly tries to keep his pride

When the mood rises up at midnight
The fever is starting to grow
But somehow things have never felt that right
Be careful you never know

His eyes get bigger than his stomach
His hair is growing
And he is breaking the chains that hold him back

The beast is unleashed on Saturday nights
The dance floor is his playground
He does not eat meat but that is what he bites
He wolf - hungry for blood

When the whole neighborhood sleeps tight
He dresses up in tight blue jeans
It is a dirty business but he can't help that
A little meal is what he needs

He smells the air and picks up his pray
A simple look into its eyes
He does not have a word to say
A scratch takes him to the sky

This is when he finally feels alive
And when he is done
You can hear him howl at the moon much to his delight

The beast is unleashed on Saturday nights
The dance floor is his playground
He does not eat meat but that is what he bites
He wolf

He lives undercover
He has got a passion for the chase
But when the sun comes up
He has to clean up every trace
Before he goes out for another taste

He is like an animal in cage hunting down some tender flesh
He is letting out all of the rage just to have a taste of little death
What the small game hide beneath is where is wildly sinks his teeth
The only way to heal the wounds is to run in the woods with the hounds
Track Name: Bare Bones
Please tell me Captain Howdy
If someday I will be a star
I'm ready to stay hungry
I will work that muscle and go to war

I have been waiting around the clock
Wondering about surrender
It is just a long way to the top
In the end the game is never over

Mirror my sweet mirror
How am I reflecting?
Am I too fat? Am I too big?
I wanna get rid of my chin
i wanna be scrawny and thin
Like famous people in magazines

I'm gonna be bare bones again
I'm gonna be beautiful for my audience
Yeah I will be bare bones again
As I'm wishing upon a star
I'm writing my memoirs

Mom and dad have always told me
That I need to feed to survive
It became a catastrophe
When suddenly I was twice my size

Now I don't care what people say
I'm taking my life back
I will run a million miles
To put my rib cage back on track

Screaming for an ice cream
I am not getting it
I say "troop on, put that skin down"
But once I have beaten my score
It comes back for more
And I have spare sets of it in store

I'm gonna be bare bones again
I'm gonna be beautiful for my audience
Yeah I will be bare bones again
I'm joining the skeleton army

I'm gonna be bare bones again
I'm gonna be beautiful for my audience
Yeah I will be bare bones again
My fans will wish they were like me
Depressed, empty and skinny
Like they all are on TV

I just wanted to be bare bones again
I hold my hands to the sky and say amen
I can't be bare bones again

I am running out of breath
I will find success in death
I'm bowing out with grace
I leave you a deadicace
Track Name: Ghost Highway
I'm here every night
I stay by your side
I am singing this lullaby
You can't hear me
Yet I'm so happy
When you finally close your eyes
While visiting Wonderland
You can catch me in your dreams
Because you can't put your arms around a memory

I'm high in the skies
Running out of time
I came to say one last goodbye
I was feeling weak
I am gone to sleep
I'm finally on the other side
I thought I heard someone cry
So I went upstairs just to see
Behind the door I found out that it was only me

Tonight I'm leaving home for the summer holidays
I will see my friends in no man's land
Don't be sad when I'm gone
I'm just fading away
We will meet again on the ghost highway

When the organ starts to play
The priest recites a prayer
They carry my wounded body in a black little casket
From above I see you all
At my own funeral
And there is nobody there but me
I was alone all along
Track Name: It's A Wonderful Afterlife
I'm on my way to Disgraceland
I have not been allowed to heaven
I have made a mistake once or twice
And I can't get to paradise

Halleluia
I have got a one way ticket down

I wear my best suit and my tie
The best damn hat money can't buy
Maybe this time i will steal the scene
I will celebrate like a rotting queen

Halleluia
There is a dead man's party down

When you are young and you need to bite
You spin around like a maniac
And when you are home alone
Everybody is gone
You know what is feeling right
Now I'm too dead to repent my sins
I start to dance on the devil's swing
Hell is in control
Madness takes its toll
It's a wonderful, wonderful afterlife

I had a meeting with the king
He told me: "Boy, let's make a deal
There is no room for the two of you
But looks like you are of easy virtue
It is all free so enter
Don't worry son, you will pay later
But once you are in remember
The chips are down"

When you are young and you need to bite
You spin around like a maniac
And when you are home alone
Everybody is gone
You know what is feeling right
Now I'm too dead to repent my sins
I start to dance on the devil's swing
Hell is in control
Madness takes its toll
It's a wonderful, wonderful afterlife

Mom and dad as I'm writing this
There is a feast I don't wanna miss
The weather is really well and I am doing swell
And I'm blowing you a kiss
Here they all treat me very good
Like every devil in the world should
I wish you were by my side to enjoy this crazy ride
Because it's a wonderful, wonderful afterlife
