I. Situation

Opening my eyes
Eyes wide open
Why am I lying down?
Twenty-one grams heavier than I was intended to be
Who are you, white man?
Is this the figure of God?
Am I a jumping Jack, just the Devil's pawn?

You, me, two,
The disaster

Opening my eyes
Eyes wide shut
The pillbox is empty
Flashback, bright light, black flight
Inside my mind, I clearly see the battlefield
I am a jumping Jack, just the Devil's pawn

You, me, two
The disaster

II. Sanctification

Remembrance of this day…

'Til then going through life asleep, I was sitting on a bench
Lost in thought, I caught sight of red shoes
Raising my head, I witnessed my own birth
With the firm belief that you were the figure of mankind's salvation
The woman without a shadow killed the guy without a heart
Now paladin, knight in white satin

You, me… Us
And then
The disaster

III. Gravitation

The world is our village
City lights, shining stars
Street lamps are turning into spotlights, you're dancing in their beams

The harvest moon in full glow is looking at you, turning around
Spreading its light over the buildings of our Champs-Élysées
Red carpet to the horizon
She vexes the sun, jealous of this intimacy

Your hair is blowing in the wind
Marilyn is living again, dress fluttering up above an air vent

Tilting your head back, you send a laugh to the skyline
My heart is bigger than I am

IV. Disintegration

We've almost arrived, I should have taken your hand,
Why didn't I take your hand?
In the silent noise, I still hear the screeching tyres
Slow motion, silence, eternity
Who would have thought that a red shoe, flying in an arc, could make the world collapse?

V. Sedation

Closing my eyes
I am lying down, witnessing my own death
Through the window, I clearly see the skyline,
I'm coming to you, in pursuit of your laugh
The pillbox is empty
No more hands, just wings
No more lambs, just kings

VI. Elevation

Oooh sending away my love for you
Oooh running away from this world to you
Oooh blowing away my love for you
Oooh the earth is fading away, no more dirt on my shoe

VII. Resolution

VIII. Vortex
