about

- Motherland - Annecy, France

Sous l'influence d'une scène mancunienne (New Order, The Smiths, …) ou pop folk américaine (R.E.M., ...), MOTHERLAND ressuscite les fantômes des eighties pour en faire un mélange unique, la pop-song idéale en ligne de mire.

Track Name: Corporate
Corporate

I am now rich but this is not really what I wanted
My life is planned and I don’t know how to escape from it
Got a house, got a job, got to be corporate or leave it
Got a car, got a dog, and you say that I should be happy with it

But you’re wrong now

How do you know, do you understand
What is the meaning of my life
Have you ever read inside my brain
To discover I’m borderline

How do you know, do you understand
What does it mean to live my life
You never care if I am still sane
But don’t worry, babe, I’m fine

How could my rage be one day contained if I don’t speak about it
Just let me yell, let me cut the rope I have been attached with
Do I need to use your knife to cut my veins, if you haven’t succeeded yet
Let me shout, let me bite, can’t you feel that my head is now exploding

Help me now

How do you know, do you understand
What is the meaning of my life
Have you ever read inside my brain
To discover I’m borderline

How do you know, do you understand
What does it mean to live my life
You never care if I am still sane
But don’t worry, babe, I’m fine
Track Name: Love Your Motherland
Love Your Motherland

We were young and just ordinary men
Didn’t think about the reason or the cause
We were narrow-minded, looked straight ahead
Never imagined that the world could explode

Now we’re crying...

Open up your eyes if you love your motherland
Not the same as the one we lived in
What have we avoided in our motherland
For not loving the human being

Is it time to pretend that we don’t care
When a riot can give a chance to believe
Revolution is not a trench warfare
Give us your hand, there’s a freedom to retrieve

And we’re crying...

Open up your eyes if you love your motherland
Not the same as the one we lived in
What have we avoided in our motherland
For not loving the human being
Track Name: Golden Age
Golden Age

I don’t care whether the world comes to an end
Even if I’m dressed in black from head to toes
I can feel your heart, and the wind in your hair
I’m not dead, and that’s only the way it goes

Everything you heard is now becoming true
Everything you dreamt of is reality
Rise up in the sky or dive into the blue
I will love you from here to eternity

The golden age will still remain
Golden time, golden friends

Grab all the ones you love, don’t release their hands
Never let anybody crash on the ground
And if you might stay far from your motherland
You can always trust in all the love you’ve found

Are we the children of an ideal world
Do we still believe in our heroes from the past
Have we understood all the lessons we learned
When everyone around us is running too fast

The golden age will still remain
Golden time, golden friends

I don’t care whether the world comes to an end
Even if I’m dressed in black from head to toes
I can feel your heart, and the wind in your hair
I’m not dead, and that’s only the way it goes

The golden age will still remain
Golden time, golden friends
Track Name: Neither Do I
Neither Do I

Another rainy night
The party is over now
There’s noone around
And nowhere to go

I am getting lost
In the middle of this road
You don’t want to spend
More time on the phone

Neither do I …

I can feel the heat
It’s burning inside my head
I know that your heart
Is frozen for years

I may break the ice
If one day I should come back
You don’t remember
How sweet are my tears

Neither do I ….
