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: All My Friends Are Dead
Happily ever after
Is not how we were meant to be
Hand in hand we walked together
But I have finally found the right key

So be gone and fly away
There are hundreds lost souls who wait
So be gone and go away
I don’t want this burden to bear

Please don’t darken my door
Don’t come back no more
I’m finally freed from my chains
I blow you one last kiss
You will not be missed
I hope we won’t meet again
In my new world that lies ahead
All my friends are dead

All those nights you were by my side
When nobody else was there for me
Thanks to you it helped while it lasted
But today it’s time to set you all free

So be gone and fly away
I am no longer sick at heart
So be gone and go away
The course of life has torn us apart

Please don’t darken my door
Don’t come back no more
I’m finally freed from my chains
I blow you one last kiss
You will not be missed
I hope we won’t meet again
So be gone
I don’t know what the future holds
There certainly will be tears to shed
But in my new world that lies ahead...

Through the looking glass
I looked at the man’s bright eyes
And fell in love with him
While waiting in the wings
I always knew that good things
Come to those who wait

Please don’t darken my door
Don’t come back no more
I’m finally freed from my chains
I blow you one last kiss
You will not be missed
I hope we won’t meet again
So be gone
I don’t know what the future holds
There certainly will be tears to shed
But in my new world that lies ahead
All my friends are dead

When I look back on yesterday
One thing I always wanted to say
Is that I never loved you anyway
Track Name: Superstar Fiend
Please ladies and gentlemen
Give a round of applause to me
Little starstruck fellow citizen
Raise your hands and get down on your knees
I breathe only to be glorified
You seem so small from my golden eyes
So I get up on my feet
And give the rabble what they need
As long as I get paid to live above my means

I'm the King of the murders by numbers
Slaying every wannabe on his way to the charts
From the top it feels so fine to be a puppet
Chainsaw Charlie is behind the scenes pulling the strings

I live for fame and entertain
Until the blood drops on the dance floor
So glamorous and fabulous
An infamous superstar fiend

Everybody loves me until the big next thing declares war
A glittery competition to be the sluttiest number one
Because you hung posters of me on your walls
But someday I will be gone beyond recall
So I will take my clothes off and shake my skinny tush
If that is what it takes I'm ready to show off

So be warned, I will give you something to remember
I will let the world witness the vestiges of my dignity
When I ride on the devil's rollercoaster
I won't stand it if you all turn your backs on me

I live for fame and entertain
Until the blood drops on the dance floor
So glamorous and fabulous
An infamous superstar fiend

You will have enough of my dubious escapades
You will throw rocks at me and spit on my face
And when I die unexpectedly
I will sit back on my throne
While I’m turning into a bag of bones
Track Name: Morgue Is Vogue
Every day when I watch television
I witness the world's latest collection
A parade brought to me to brighten my day

Hundreds of bodies dress up the pavement
Stains of blood on the walls are so current
Throwing bombs to each other and loving it

Death is the new normal
The air I breathe is lethal
I eat my breakfast watching breaking news
Those random tragedies have become so inspiring

All dressed up to the nines
I will meet you in the headlines tomorrow morning
Goodbye
I'm pouting on the catwalk that leads to my coffin
Tonight

Spending hours fitting in my dressing room
Looking for an outfit to highlight my gloom
Smileys and happy faces are so last year

I should also make use of my fingers
I must shed fifty pounds to look gore-geous
I will get rid of my skin to tempt the dead

Some fashionable freak on national TV
Guarantees record audience ratings
If I follow the trend will someone finally notice?

All dressed up to the nines
I will meet you in the headlines tomorrow morning
Goodbye
I'm pouting on the catwalk that leads to my coffin
I'm looking forward to look flawless
Every season of the year

I'm gonna share a selfie
Of myself cutting my wrists
For the whole world to retweet
And everyone will follow me to the grave
You all will be my friends

I'm hanging by a thread with this gun at my head
Watch me become the next cover fiend
I will stay relevant
You will remember my name
Track Name: Clockwork Lullaby
Don’t you mind us borrowing a few precious moments
From your meaningless existence?
Count on us to constantly remind you
To never forget your life belongs to us

The clock is ticking
You have to wake up early tomorrow
A man’s work is never ending
The sandman is coming
Start counting sheep and keep your eyes closed
Until your prisoned mind starts fainting

Pledge allegiance in obedience
Follow the rules you worthless little tool
Heads are rolling as time is fleeting
Singing with pride the clockwork lullaby

Wake up it is already three o’clock in the morning
Don’t be late you are expected
Don’t check your watch every second
You are needed all week
And minutes won’t fly any faster

Pledge allegiance in obedience
Follow the rules you worthless little tool
Heads are rolling as time is fleeting
Singing with pride the clockwork lullaby

You are just another number without a name
Roll up your sleeve because work is good for your health
Forget yourself and let your body command
Never say a word
You live to suffer
Track Name: Meat The Black Sheep
The price of being a wolf is loneliness
He is howling at the moon, hiding in distress
We feed him until he becomes useless
Then track him down for his differences

The price of being a sheep is boredom
We were raised to become lords of fascism
We were told that misfits do not deserve
The title of acceptance we once earned

Piggy is on the run, gonna hound him uptown
Cover your face or we will beat you to the ground
Piggy is on his last legs wearing a brown gown
Shrieking with pain is the jewel in the crown

Who cares to hear when a helpless lamb cries?
Our mission is to carve the thing with a smile
Oh what a tasty sight to hammer the knife
And to divide the waste into slices

Piggy is on the run, gonna hound him uptown
Cover your face or we will beat you to the ground
Piggy is on his last legs wearing a brown gown
Shrieking with pain is the jewel in the crown

The flyaway is on display
To God we pray for what is in our plate

We are gonna hunt down and chase him at a rhythmical pace
We are gonna meat the black sheep
We have a place to maintain at the top of the food chain
We are gonna meat the black sheep
We will bring him to the gallows just to please our own ego
We are gonna meat the black sheep
The punishment is supreme because he is not a human being
We are gonna meat the black sheep
We are gonna tear him to pieces and sell it to the masses
We are gonna meat the black sheep
We are gonna scalp his soiled skin and eat it with extra cheese
We are gonna meat the black sheep
We will devour his flesh, make a feast and ingest
We are gonna meat the black sheep

The scars on his face and the dirt on our hands
The law of the jungle prevails and you’re never too young
Track Name: Teenage Radio Hell
I really do think I’m getting old
Why would I listen to sounds without anything to hold
In my prime people used to socialize
And buy records at the local store
But today those do not even exist anymore

When the trendy kids go to a show
They watch the entire gig through their up-to-date telephones
Tell me why don’t they enjoy the moment
While it is happening before their eyes
Instead of saving it to watch it later in small size

Where is my generation
When we turned our stereo on
It is a whole new brand
Things got out of hand
I don’t understand this teenage radio hell

Let’s talk about record companies
One of the biggest conspiracies of the last century
They think they know what people like to hear
And the way it should be packaged
They treat our ears with disposable fast-food garbage

Now music has become digital
And it belongs to the thieves but more power to the people
It is worth a used handkerchief but in the meantime
It looks rad on their little screens
And may God prevent the day their machines all sink

Where is my generation
When we turned our stereo on
It is a whole new brand
Things got out of hand
I don’t understand this teenage radio hell

You cannot walk somewhere without being brainwashed by noises
Then they possess your head to never get out of it
Goddamn!

Turn it on, turn it up
Clap your hands and stomp your feet
Turn it on, turn it up
Just shake your hips to the beat

This masquerade has lasted far too long
All the fake rebels need to take an everlasting vacation
Their fifteen minutes of fame must come to an end
They finally have to be sacked
It is time to give the radio back to the maniacs
Track Name: Brain Drain
Those whom God has joined together
Let no man put asunder
And join hands to the only true things that matter
Much to our elders dismay
We wake up to a new day
To enter in our land of leisure

And we don't care about our world being an illusion
Trapped in a web we are on our holy mission
To sit at a desk and click

We need a brain drain
We are computer geeks
You know at one glance
We are playing hide-and-seek
If the living dead rule the earth
Then we will all survive
Because we are capsulized
Having a brain drain

We don't know about romance
And we don't have any friends
Except legions of virtual nameless
What is the point of socializing
When you can live in a dream
Made up of little dots on a screen?

And we don't care about our world being an illusion
Trapped in a web we are on our holy mission
To sit at a desk and click

We need a brain drain
We are computer geeks
You know at one glance
We are playing hide-and-seek
If the living dead rule the earth
Then we will all survive
Because we are capsulized

We need a brain drain
We are computer geeks
And our existence on this planet is somewhat bleak
If the living dead rule the earth
Then we will all survive
Because we are dehumanized
Having a brain drain

We don't have time to think about
The stuff that is happening outside
We fight for our little private wars instead
And we don't have nothing to say
But we are gonna do it anyway
So let us put our helmets on and have a drain
Track Name: Kitty In The Kitchen
The kitty in the kitchen walks around cautiously
Locked home alone and looking slovenly
She lives to please her master and purrs resignedly
When the touch of his skin fulfills her needs
She hides behind the sofa when he is angry red
She is at his disposal but not allowed in his bed
She fears those lonely nights
When she wishes she was someone else

One fateful day she woke up after a busy dream
Crawling along to do her daily tasks
A genie in the bottle appeared miraculously
With the promise to make out what she asked
“Just make three wishes“ he said
“I will make them all come true”
“Do you dream of a place where the sky is bright and blue?”
“So let your voice be heard if you deeply want to be rescued”

The kitty in the kitchen is wounded to the core
She is walking while relieved with a face you can’t ignore
All her hopes were not vain
As she found a home away from home
Track Name: Cold Blue Valentine
Remembering the blessed day
When you took my heart away
There is one lesson I have learned
Love can be a simple word
Or either a sentence

So with these hands I thee wed
Shall leave this word unsaid
Because every rose has its thorn
Fairy tales and unicorns
Always end up into shreds

You were the only one for me
I will miss you sincerely, my darling
My snow white Prince Charming
You are looking divine
Being my cold blue Valentine

Paranoia is awareness
Excessive I must confess
But I had to be a man
And do something to prevent
You to leave with someone else

You were the only one for me
I will miss you sincerely, my darling
My snow white Prince Charming
You are looking divine
Being my cold blue Valentine

Now I'm sure that you are mine
My freezer became your shrine
Now you will never get old
As your blood is running cold
While you are turning into gold
Track Name: High Spirits
It was a beautiful evening
Everyone was crying
The trumpets were playing with no other sound
When we nailed the coffin underneath the ground
This was rather unfortunate
But somewhat quite delicate
To say one last goodbye to our dear friend
When the cause is deliberate

Poor little diseased thing
High spirits took the core of his skin
We heard them serenade with other cancers within
Poor little deceased thing
What remains of him is gone for a spin
Far away in a land where all rotten lungs can win

As we laid him down to sleep
With empty faces allegedly brave
We all prayed the lord his soul to keep
Because there was not much else to save
We were all deluding ourselves
Well aware we were in denial
But some events should be left unspoken
Even if everyone knows what is to blame

A helpless need to take sustenance
For his ropey liver to dance
Such a guilty and sorry sight
To see him consume with delight

Poor little diseased thing
High spirits took the core of his skin
We heard them serenade with other cancers within
Poor little deceased thing
What remains of him is gone for a spin
Far away in a land where all rotten lungs can win

What a shame because we all knew
And we all saw the consequences
But we were all very careful
Not to put an end to this
It was none of our concern
There were many signs along the way
We assumed that they could wait
Just a thing he needed was someone
To hold out an hand to him
Before it is too late

But when he stroke just another match
Rumbles came out from his mouth
There was no time left for him to croak
As this stale air made him choke

Poor little diseased thing
High spirits took the core of his skin
We heard them serenade with other cancers within
Poor little deceased thing
What remains of him is gone for a spin
Far away in a land where all rotten lungs can win

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
His body has returned to earth
Now we mourn the loss of our beloved friend
From a lifelong battle he could never win
Nothing is all he ever earned
But the chance to sleep with worms
The moral of this story we all learned
That his journey to paradise
May never be authorized
Because drinking like a fish ain’t nice
Track Name: Humor Tumor
Hello? How are you doing?
Tell me your secrets
Are you just having a bad hair day
Or maybe you always look bored
Do you want a rope?
Maybe I can help with this

What is wrong? Why are you mourning?
Look in the mirror, what do you see?
You may not be responsible for the face you have
But you are guilty for the face that you are making

Humor must be a tumor
I look around me and all I see is unhappy faces
Maybe they are just hiding
Because when you are seen while laughing
They think you are nuts

Wake up, it’s a brand new dawn
Don’t be a sad clown
You are a blank canvas so take a pencil
Put some colors everywhere
I dare you to care about yourself
It is never too late

Oh come all you faithless
Be gentle and joyful
Cause life is delightful
So join our sect today
Together join hands
Do not be so morose
And put on your red nose
Before we hop the twig

Human nation is fueled by friction and devastation
Drowning in its delusions without any derision
People have no expectations, complaining in suffocation
This misconception of revolution is aberration

Human nation is fueled by friction and devastation
Its celebrations are driven by mind alterations
They are no more blinded by illusions
No more greatness aspirations
Trapped with endless reproduction
But where is the fun?

Oh come all you faithless
Be gentle and joyful
Cause life is delightful
So join our sect today
Together join hands
Do not be so morose
And put on your red nose
Before we hop the twig

Why so serious?
Have you been hit by a bus?
Let me paint a smile all over your face
Enjoy little things
Make yourself die laughing
You will never find happiness until you try

Life can be dreadful
But crack a smile
Surrounded by fools
But crack a smile
Don’t be so cynical
Just crack a smile
Your repressed hate inside left unsatisfied
Needs to burst out while being happy as a clam
