Firipu Kurokei Album acheté par erreur en croyant que c'était les versions Screamo, mais je n'ai rien à blâmer. Un album excellent malgré que ce n'est pas ce que je cherchais. Dommage.

Don Lolo Pas forcément fan de leurs albums plus "rock", j'ai apprécié cette relecture plus acoustique. Quelques morceaux très intenses. Favorite track: Red.

Keff A re-imaging on such violent yet beautiful songs. Favorite track: After You.

Track Name: Red
MY OWN PRIVATE ALASKA - Red
-----------------------------------------------------

Blue
The color was for you
Despite none of your eyes being blue
Just like the ocean

When it’s green
Full of gasoline

I saw you grin at me.
Your smiles I can’t believe in
Understand

The dress was white.
It needed to be white
And I hope you understand why
I needed sex and alcohol
Cause when I fell, I fell in

Black. A big black inner hole
I didn’t even see the sides
The light in the end was so far
And i twas

Red
All is red now
The sky is red, the water is red,
All is red now
The grass is red, the stone is red, the sand is red,
All is red now
My hands are red, my feet are red, my hair is red, my eyes are red,
All is red now

Yellow
Sweet and dangerous yellow
Did I wear the color of shame ?
Could I just swallow all this rain ?

Purple was the rain.
And what’s the purpose of this lane ?
Will I be insane again ?
And find our home empy ?

Empty like my brain.
Empty cause I’m the idiot of this train
Idiocy is my pride, cause I forgive

I forgive the unforgiven
I give more than I get
And with a single black pen, I paint in color
I paint in red

Red
All is red now
The sky is red, the water is red,
All is red now
The grass is red, the stone is red, the sand is red,
All is red now
My hands are red, my feet are red, my hair is red, my eyes are red,
All is red now


Now
We are travelling
Inside
Out of our minds
Now
We are travelling
So far
Away from home

The dress was white.
It needed to be white
Track Name: After You
MY OWN PRIVATE ALASKA - After You
--------------------------------------------------------------

After you
Criminals are saints
After you
Whores are nurses
After you
I’m not scared at all
After you
Now that I’ve seen evil

Could it be a life ?.. Never reminding...
Could it be my life ?.. Erase, erase...
Could it be a life ?.. Never rewinding...
Could it be ?...
Burying my own corpse

After you
Hangmen are friends
After you
Soldiers are tourists
After you
I’m not scared at all
After you
Dead and unbreakable

Let’s bury it, you’ll see your crime

How can I be alive after you ?

So wash my memory
Track Name: Where Did You Sleep Last Night
Huddie Ledbetter - Where Did You Sleep Last Night
--------------------------------------------------------

My girl, my girl, don't lie to me
Tell me where did you sleep last night

In the pines, in the pines
Where the sun don't ever shine
I would shiver the whole night through

My girl, my girl, where will you go
I'm going where the cold wind blows

In the pines, in the pines
Where the sun don't ever shine
I would shiver the whole night through

Her husband, was a hard working man
Just about a mile from here

My girl, my girl, don't lie to me
Tell me where did you sleep last night

In the pines, in the pines
Where the sun don't ever shine
I would shiver the whole night through

My girl, my girl, where will you go
I'm going where the cold wind blows

In the pines, in the pines
Where the sun don't ever shine
I would shiver the whole night through
Track Name: Die For Me
MY OWN PRIVATE ALASKA - Die for me
---------------------------------------------------------------

Would you die for me
If I said please ?
Would you sacrifice ?
Would you call my name ?

There’s no other way out to live with it
I will knock on your door every night to beg you
I will write your name on the wall everyday
To show you the way

I’ll never kill you
I’ll tell you to
I’ll tell you how
I’ll tell you how to do it

On the second day, I’ll bring you flowers
Cause you’re more beautiful than any woman I’ve seen
And the smell of the rose will be the last thing
You’ll recall when you will be dead

So read your name
Just once please

My hand, your blood
Track Name: Anchorage
MY OWN PRIVATE ALASKA - Anchorage
----------------------------------------------

Bye
Burn
Bold
Bored
Of watching the same movie
In my head

I remember me in that room, waiting for sleep to come, waiting for minutes, waiting for hours, waiting for days... Waiting for a miracle to wake up from this nightmare. Never stopping to say : it’s not possible, it’s not possible, it’s not my life. Please take it and give it to the garbage truck. Please take this life and flush it in the toilets. Throw it into the ocean. Burn it all. Bury it six feet under. Give it to your worst enemy. Give my life to your worst enemy. Oh no...

Give my life to your worst enemy.

I remember me under this public bench . Like a tramp. Like a motherfuckin’ tramp. Drinking alcohol and alcohol. Eating pills and pills. Mixing it. Feeling my mind going crazy. Just to forget. I remember the cold. I remember the piss. I just learned about your crimes and I just wanted to die. Not even to kill you... ... not yet. I just wanted to die, and you were laughing. Drinking for other reasons.

I remember what you never saw.
What you’ll never see.
What you’ll never remember.

Then I wanted to kill. I wanted to kill you. I wanted to kill them. I wanted to kill the Earth, and after to kill me. I got the picture of you naked. I got the picture of you sucking cocks. I got the picture of you with all theses bastards... I got the picture of you asking my friends to fuck. I got the picture of you lying to me.

I got no more pictures of you now...
No more pictures
No more
Oh no...

Bye
I know I didn’t say it
Burn
First and last goodbye
Bold
Of having wanted to kill you
Bored
Of watching the same movie
In my head

So now thank you
Thank you so much bastards
All the cum you sent on her face was the fuel I need to reach Anchorage

Reaching Anchorage...
Track Name: I Am An Island
MY OWN PRIVATE ALASKA - I am an Island
------------------------------------------------

Some people are sick, and other people pay to see.
The same starving children are singing for the president.
Some people are sad, and hang themselves on Christmas trees.
It’s time to answer by chaos
Have you seen the TV ? Have you seen it well ?
Have you read the news ? Do you know by heart ?
Did you know a man killed his own family ?
Have you seen what I don’t wanna see ?
No hope for some change to come
No truth to learn, just learn to lie
If I don’t kill myself, it’s cause I’ve already left
Elsewhere, anywhere, nowhere

I am an Island

Everybody hurts, and everybody cries
It’s not a song, it’s just fucking reality
Have you felt the tears you would like to lick ?
You’d like to fuck cause your fucking sexual life is dead
Would you like to rape ? Would you like to steal ?
Would you like to kill the guy who tells you what to to ?
Do you know the anger ? Do you know the hatred ?
Did you know the USA maintain the embargo ?
Nothing will change until we die
Have you seen the poles ? Have you seen Kyoto ?
Not even you can ever change
Have you seen their fate ? Have you seen...

I am an Island

That many have departed
Even me

My own private Alaska

I am an Island
Track Name: Amen
MY OWN PRIVATE ALASKA - Amen
--------------------------------------

Live on

Remember what we’re made of
Remember where we came from

Through every rainbow
I’ll see you rise
And don’t you dare touch my hair if you need to relieve the weight of this mother fuckin’ guilt

It’s so hard to sleep at night
It’s so hard to wake up every day

Through every rainbow
I’ll see you rise

And don’t you dare kiss my face
I will find a solution
Live on
Cause I need it

Pray the lord my soul to keep
In order to survive
In order just to breathe

This is all I can say
This is all I can save
Your fuckin’ memory
Cause it’ll never be the same

Amen
Track Name: Just Like You And I
MY OWN PRIVATE ALASKA - Just Like You And I
-----------------------------------------------------

Come back to me
I’m not that made of stones
I’m not the one
Who used to hit before
I will be wise
We will live joyfully
The other guys
Will never come for more

But don’t ask me where I got this blood...

I would have killed
Everyone on our road
We will be quiet
We will be all alone
Don’t cut your strings
It’s for your own good, you know
Outside the world
Is not a place for you

But don’t ask me where I got this blood...
But don’t ask me where I found this knife

Don’t be afraid
It’s me my love
You think I changed
But God is ours above

I will tie you on our bed
I will tie you on our floor
I will tie you on our walls
I will tie you on our grave

So we’ll be together isolated
So you’ll learn the word : isolate
So we’ll be together isolated
For love, for god : isolate

Just like you and I
Just like you
End
