Track Name: The resistance archipelago
The guillotine or the razor
Illusion of choice is kept
Oppression is modernized
But we're resilient
Defiance is our way of thinking
City after city, state after state
The reaction grows up

Every day, is a new battle
Clenched fists, never drop your guard
All around the world, we are
The resistance archipelago

ALone or in a crew
Maybe small but numerous
Our daily acts of rebellion
Plant the seeds of Disobedience

Every day, is a new battle
Clenched fists, never drop your guard
All around the world, we are
The resistance archipelago

Never drop your guard
All around the world, we are
The resistance archipelago
Track Name: DIY or die
D.I.Y or die

It's starting with
A lack of solutions
An inner cry to liberate
Break down the barriers
And it becomes a way of life

No money but ideas
And willpower
No time to lose
D.I.Y or die

If you don't do it
For yourself no one will
No one believes in you
It's the best reason to go

Message from the heart
Energy from the passion
Action from the guts
Synergy from the crew

No money but ideas
And willpower
Nothing else to wait for
D.I.Y or die
Track Name: The common enemy
The world is sick, plagued by a deadly disease
A generalized cancer called : Corporation
Giant octopus in a metastatic state
Throws his tentacles to spread the tumor area
Across the oceans, throughout continents
Always looking for new places to feed the beast
Once he passed through, nothing's still livable
A scorched earth policy for an infinite growth
Planet's destuction is scheduled in his system

A Life grinder, a death eater,
All resources are sucked, For his own benefit
Damage on the Biosphere, Harming the animals
Rape of the human rights, Externalities

The darkness, is rising
We have to stay, in the light and fight
The common enemy

Day After day, biodiversity collapses when
Explodes the Climate refugees number
Do you hear the roar of the guns
Approaching to start a war for resources

The darkness, is rising
We have to stay, in the light and fight
The common enemy
Track Name: Birds of liberty
We may have lost our wings
But we're still flying
We have shed, tears of blood
But we still trust in our ideas
Never crawl In the shadow of a god
Never have A leash around the neck
No Pledge of allegience !!
Our Minds are free as the birds carried by the wind
Moving forward against fear, threats and traps
The harbingers of spring will bring the hope
We may have lost our wings
But we're still flying
L.I.B.E.R.T.Y
Birds of Liberty
Track Name: Millions of seeds
They're trying to bury us
But they don't know we are seeds
The memory of the past
A new basis for the future
Forgotten, into the sweet darkness of the underground
Seeds of rebellion, Seeds of revenge
Millions of seeds are taking roots
Sharing the air water and light
The weeds become powerful trees
They're trying to bury us
But they don't know we are seeds
They are sowing the pain and the sorrow
They will reap the fruits of anger
They're trying to bury us
But they don't know we are seeds
Track Name: Here and now
From the place i stand a place to begin
I've stopped consuming myself waiting for a change
Here and now
Fed up to face my future, as a spectator
It belongs to me master of my destiny
Here and now
No more heros, no more messiahs
There is no one to save us
No more bullshits, nor utopias
There is only you and me
Here and now, and what we have to do
From the place we stand, a place to begin
You and me here and now and what we have to do
From the place we stand something to believe in
You and me here and now and what we have to do
Track Name: Be one with the storm
Be one with the storm, unity takes its form
The violence of the gusts fed by the blast of a desperation bomb
Indignant people rise up to tear down your reign
The kings are dethroned, the kings are dethroned by the pawns

A tidal wave to overthrow
Your empires and make
A Clean break with the past , to start again from scratch
Start again from scratch

Sing the song of the storm, unity takes its form
Shockwaves resound, against the walls of your bastions
Fear's gone over to the other side

Unity takes its form - The crowns are thrown down - The kings are dethroned by the pawns - By the pawns

A Clean break with the past
To start again from scratch

Be one with the storm
Track Name: The ghost of Medusa's raft
Captain's first the rats desert the sinking ship
Forsaken ! on a makeshift raft the castaways drift at the swell's mercy

Minutes are hours, hours are days
The stupor turns into despair
Wanderers in a saltwater hell
Thirst and hunger meet the madness

Shaken by the waves, the cries of the crew, mingle with the noise of the billows
Howling for some help, into the void, Cursing, the heavens, gods and Men

Scanning the horizon for a glimmer of hope
Wishing for a sighting land or an approaching sail

The embrace of death tightens each day more

A Fratricidal fight break out for survival
The strongest eat the weak, Humanity has disappeared -

An other sunset, the hope has gone
The song of sirens as only answer to their calls

The ghost of Medusa's raft soars on us
Track Name: Dancing on your ruins
I'm ready for the fall of this modern era
I want to dance on its ruins ! on its ruins

I don't recognize myself in your competition system
Crush the others to be the best is a non sense for me ! For us

I hate your consumer society
Your indifference to the wastage and
Destruction of our only home

I don't want to adapt myself to your sick society
One by one ! I roll with your punches but i'll never kneel down
We'll never kneel down

We are all we have, to hold the line, side by side and defy your order

In your single way of thinking
we have seen a boot stamping a human face
We have seen a boot smashing the planet

We will never accept a new shape of slavery
One by one we roll with your punches but we'll never kneel down
we're working to your fall ! we'll be dancing on your ruins ! On your ruins
Track Name: Dust'n'ashes
The sky is red as a bloody backdrop
The horizon bleed, chimneys spit their poison
Black smokes rise like a paintbrush strokes
And draw the lines of a bad omen

Dust and ashes

Black clouds burst into a cinder rain
The landscape's filled of a fog of pain
The last sunbeam strikes a wasteland
A tear of light falls on a sea of sand

Dust and ashes,

Under the smog, days and nights, are only shades of gray
The factories give the rythm, run in full swing
Ghostly crowds are choking in a confusion state
Dust ! to blind their eyes ! Ashes ! to dry their mouths
Gone ! the wilderness colors ! Gone ! the blue of the pure water
Draw me a nightmare ! Draw me a nightmare of dust and ashes
Track Name: The way of dissent
They instil fear that's how their reign survives
They have painted shadows at the 4 corners of the world

Then they have told their children not to step away from the light
Their light ! Their way of thinking

Because hiding in the dark
Monsters are waiting for their preys
But they are just scarecrows
From darkness dawns the light
And from it possibilities can arise
A chance to be free

A chance to be free
All of this can be possible
If someone dispels the haze of their lies
Who better than us to succeed this bet

We'll not be servile puppets
Who merge into their tales

The only monsters that haunt these stories
Are the ones telling them

In the twilight glow that never stops diying
We break the moorings with their world

Carried by the breath of rebellion
We set sails to follow the way of dissent
We set sails to follow the way of dissent
Track Name: Don't want to play their game
I've always tried to do things the right way
To play the game
With respect for others and democracy
I grew up
thinking that every conflict had peaceful solutions

Then I realized that
The game rules don't apply
In the same way to everyone
Those who impose these rules
Don't play by them
Don't play by them

Something woke up
In the depths of my being
This deaf anger which was
Buried deep inside of me
I don't want to play the game anymore
I don't want to play the game anymore

I will not roll their loaded dices again,
I will not lay down a single card of their marked deck

Don't want to play their game anymore
Don't want to play their game anymore
Only want to destroy these cheaters, their system and their game

Destroy their system and their game
Track Name: Friends until death
Friends ! Until death !
We ! are ! one !

You're the lighthouse leading our steps between life pitfalls
He's the anchor preventing us from drifting away
She's the star to follow when no more lights are shining
They are the wind swelling our sails when it's time to move forward

We're one

We are
Friends ! Until death !
Friends ! Until death !

The we stonger than the I
United to survive
In these times called Peace...
Track Name: Revenge
Thousands of years of evolution have passed
A lot of knowledge has been acquired
Now, Man has become a geological force
who's breaking and remodeling the world as he pleases
But Man has stayed what he was
Brutal, selfish, greedy and competitive
Instead of cherishing the Nature that allowed him to flourish
He chose to declare war on her

To declare war on her

A war without battlefields
A war without enemies
An endless war which takes place everywhere
Into the roar of the machines
Into the clash of the arms
The Earthly paradise becomes hell

Becomes hell

This civilization was built from our defects
Sowing destruction for the welfare of our own species

Brutal, selfish, greedy and competitive

The emptiness in Man is like an insatiable hunger

For too long Mankind led the ostrich policy
Blinded by the dogma of an infinite growth
But any action has its consequences
and It's time for us It's time to pay the bill

The collapse is not coming
It's already here
Mother nature is taking revenge
It's only the beginning

Mother nature is taking revenge
Revenge - Revenge
Revenge - Revenge
