lyrics

poor boy doesn't feel right
he's sick and tired
small eyes, no smile,
dressed in rags.

since he was a child he's ashamed
and never accept to hold any other hand.
he believe he's forgotten and possessed,
that everyone's here for him to blame.
let's see,
let's see : buy him a bunch of poppies,
better bet he'll sniff the flowers.
look at them dry and dessicate !
you'll guess how stricken is the man
has not so much enemies nor friends
but likes to bash heads.
no smile.
rags.

poor boy doesn't feel right
he's sick and tired
small eyes, no smile
and dressed in rags.

he has pain in the chest, and scars on the flesh
he's so worn for his young age.
nothing he might be missing at this point
but so many things he'll feel very sorry for.
it's been 15 springs of loneliness,
being a mother for his sisters
15 springs trying to be clever
but torn in the end by several excesses
that's when he cowardly left them
and never confessed.
my poor boy is big and strong
and will stay strong, you'll be wrong
as long he's gonna keep heads up
and won't venture underwater.
my boy doesn't feel right , he's sick and tired
small eyes.
rags.

poor boy doesn't feel right
he's sick and tired
small eyes, no smile
and dressed in rags.

about

collection Lyon, France

Collection accumule les objets sonores glanés sur son chemin, les arrachant à leur utilité pour en susciter un sens nouveau. Dans son cabinet de curiosité, les merveilles fréquentent les monstres et l’abeille tutoie le loup. On tend alors l’oreille à ce que Collection veut bien nous dire de ses obsessions, à ce que la pudeur nous révèle de rugueux, à la sagesse d’un loup qui tutoie une abeille. ... more
