D-I-f**kin-Y

Quelques précisions : si vous cherchez bien, vous vous rendrez compte que le prix du téléchargement est fixé à 1000 $. Je m'explique : on s'attend pas à ce que vous le téléchargiez à ce prix-là, on n’est pas si stupide. C'est plutôt une manière de jouer avec le format digital. Tu peux l’écouter, le voler, le pirater, le faire tourner à tes amis si tu l'aimes (ou même si tu l'aimes pas, c'est un peu ton problème). Mais pour le posséder dans son intégrité numérique, il te faudra débourser 1000 $. C'est comme ça. On ne dit pas qu'il s'agit de sa VALEUR. On affirme que si tu es comme nous, c'est-à-dire fauché comme les blés, et que tu as envie de l'avoir, tu te débrouilleras pour le voler, d'une manière ou d'une autre. ET C'EST TRÈS BIEN DE VOLER QUAND T’ES PAUVRE !!!
Mais si jamais y a quelqu'un qui perd la boule et qui nous offre le cash, ben on sortira un format physique. Un beau truc, pas cher, et que tu pourras presser sur ton cœur léger en te disant que tu possèdes le format physique de l’EP LE PLUS CHER DE BANDCAMP !
Pour ceux que ça choque, rassurez-vous, au début, on voulait l'afficher à 250 000 $, mais apparemment, avec 1000 $, on atteint la limite maximale de Bandcamp. Après, y a toujours l'option où tu peux mettre un prix plus élevé...

If you look carefully, you will see the price is 1000 $. We don’t expect you to pay THIS MUCH, we’re not totally stupid. This is more about to play with the digital format. You can stream it, steal it, share it if you like it (even if you don’t; this ain’t our business). But to own it in its digital integrity, you’ll have to pay 1000 $. Period. We don’t say it WORTH IT. We say if you’re like us, broke as f***, and you want to get it, you’ll probably manage to steal it, one way or another. AND IT’S ALL RIGHT TO STEAL WHEN YOU ARE POOR !!!
But if someone is crazy enough to buy it, then, we’re going to release a physical format. Something good looking, affordable, something you’d be proud to own : THE MOST EXPENSIVE EP FROM BANDCAMP !
For those who could be shocked, the first price settled was 250 000 $, but apparently, the highest we can set on Bandcamp is 1000 $. But you always have the option to give us more money, if you really want…

Track Name: Song for a Selkie
When your old ship will be sailin’
Through the silver sea you live for
When the storm will be rumblin’
In that golden heart you look for

In the sadness of the world
In the pain of your thorns
In the cries of the rain
Will you save my soul again ?

When the black streams will be slappin’
Against the side of the beast you ride
When there’s nothing left of the world
But the wind, the wave and the tide

In the mist of a new Dawn
In the glitters of your crown
In the cries of the Rain
Will you see my face again ?

When the sand will be turnin’
In a line of rocky shore
And your eyes will be starin’
At this world you used to stand for

In the eye of the storm
In the love that you mourn
In the cries of the rain
Will you hear my voice again ?
Track Name: I never died like this before
Watchin’ these ashes blowin’ in the wind
It takes the pain away
The floodin’ blood, the flesh and bones
I’m tryin’ to make it goes away

I never died like this before

Your shadow crawlin’ everywhere I go
In every step, in every fight
Pushin’ me up and dragin’ me down
Like there is nothin’ but the night

I never died like this before
Track Name: Five more pints and Six more miles
The wind is getting’ tired
Of blowin’ in the night
I still got this feelin’
Of loosin” the fight
So I miss you by my side
Holdin’ on and runnin’ wild
I’m a drink five more pints
And I’m a walk six more miles

When I’m feelin’ down and out
There’s no place where I can go
Well I spent so many nights
Tearin’ up my old banjo
And I miss you by my side
Holdin’ on and runnin’ wild
I’m a drink five more pints
And I’m a walk six more miles

I’ll never settle down
For I’m bound to ramblin’ on
Walkin’ on that ol’ railroad
Tryin’ hard to movin’ on
I followed every steps
And I gave my love back
With my shoes full of dirt
And my heart full of black
All I need is five more
And to walk these last miles

When I’m stone, when I’m hammered
When it knocks me off my feet
When I’m fightin’ like a dog
When I try a makin’ it
I miss you by my side
Holdin’ on and runnin’ wild
I’m a drink five more pints
And I’m a walk six more miles

When the day is fadin’ out
When there’s nothin’ I can do
For it’s when the night comes by
That I gotta push on through
I miss you by my side
Holdin’ on and runnin’ wild
I’m a drink five more pints
And I’m a walk six more miles

I’ll never settle down
For I’m bound to ramblin’ on
Walkin’ on that ol’ railroad
Tryin’ hard to movin’ on
I followed every steps
And I gave my love back
With my shoes full of dirt
And my heart full of black
All I need is five more
And to walk these last miles
Track Name: Come to me
Come to me, Oh sorrow
Chase the devil from my soul
Let it burn ‘til the end of my love

Come to me, Oh fellow
Come and stay by my side
To the land of the shade and the night

Let the devil crawling down, let him stay, let him stay
Let me fight it on my own, let me stay

Come to me, Oh angel
Let me walk the path with you
I’m a thousand miles away from the light

Come to me, Oh demons
With your mouths full of greed
Sing your song ‘cause it’s killing time again

Let the devil crawling down, let him stay, let him stay
Let me fight it on my own, let me stay

Come to me, Oh lover
Strike your blows in my heart
Let me burn and rise from my ashes

Come to me, Oh poor boy
Come and see what you’ve done
You’re the only one I’ve ever missed

Let the devil crawling down, let him stay, let him stay
Let me fight it on my own, let me stay
Track Name: Three Devils
Last night I rubbed three bottles of whiskey
I saw the faces of three devils laughin’ at me
Now my liver is a pity
And my body is shaky
For another night, three devils
Take my memories away

The first demon on the loose
Told me “You shouldn’t quit the booze
Never thirsty, never cold,
Or else you’ll burn another fuse

Now, listen to me closely
Do exactly what I say
Or I’ll rip off your chest
And I’ll take your soul away”

And my blood is on the floor
Of another dirty bar
I cannot die, die, die
But my soul is on fire
Three devils get me higher
I cannot cry, cry, cry

The second one was wild
Told me “You’ll never know your child
He’ll call another man his dad
Never forget how you’ve been bad

You left him growin’ up
With all the pain that he could take
But I will leave your soul soaked
With this boy who you forsake

And my blood is on the floor
Of another dirty bar
I cannot die, die, die
But my soul is on fire
Three devils get me higher
I cannot cry, cry, cry

The third stared right into my eyes
He said “I’m not gonna tell you lies
Your heart is broke since she’s been gone
And you’re not chiseled from stone

No need to cry, no need to wait
You’ve been here a hundred times
You need a drink, we pay the next round
You and the three devils all around”
Track Name: The curse of Ol' Jim
I’m not the best lover
And I’m not the best friend
I had some hard times
All my money was spent

In the booze, in the drugs
I found somethin’ real
But I lost your memory
It ain’t worth the deal

Now I spent thousand nights
And I spent thousand days
Drinkin’ my own blood
Ramblin’ my way

But the only road
I tried to get through
Is a sleep full of bad dreams
And of memories of you

The curse it is said and I’ll never come up
‘Cause the Bells are a ringin’ and I’m drunk as fuck
So leave me alone and I drink myself up
We’re more than a handful you see !

I’m a wild rover
For many a year
But this time my head’s down
And I’m full of despair

I saw countless beauties
In the South, in the North
Every time I went down
It’s your eyes I called forth

I was saving my heart
For there’s no room inside
‘Cept for my friends,
My son and my bride

But I went away
On a cold snowy night
Since this day I’m a mess
And I’m tore up inside

The curse it is said and I’ll never come up
‘Cause the Bells are a ringin’ and I’m drunk as fuck
So leave me alone and I drink myself up
We’re more than a handful you see !

I struggle and strive
To be a better man
But I’m soaked so high
And the tears never end

I headed to the east end
To bury my soul
With my dog and a nickel
And the Bell, and the toll

I went far from my home
I went far from my love
I’m a long gone rover
With no god above

With no ships full of gold
And no love for his own
A man sure dies
And never grow old

The curse it is said and I’ll never come up
‘Cause the Bells are a ringin’ and I’m drunk as fuck
So leave me alone and I drink myself up
We’re more than a handful you see !
