about

The Lost Meridian Bordeaux, France

4 garçons et 1 fille puisent dans les influences rock / triphop des années 90 pour créer leur univers propre, mêlant avec justesse la mélancolie des Rhodes et les saturations atmosphériques dignes de the XX. Une musique influencée par Morcheeba, Archive, Moloko et une voix enivrante parachèvent des mélodies qui nous transportent. ... more

Track Name: Incomplete Puzzle
Incomplete puzzle
Each missing piece is a lack
Memory imprisoned
Behind high bars, too solid bars
Good or bad grabbed together, lost for ever

Hurtle down the stairs in our fast racing mattress
Our spinal columns feel each step, cushion each bounce
The thrill of the fall through our decreed tomboy haircuts
Now it’s my turn I want to run to my freedom
And climb again, panting, trying to catch our breath
And climb again, climb again, climb again

I can’t bite la Madeleine
You left no crumb
I can’t read my unconsciousness
Against the walls
My voice rebounds in this bottomless pit
Endless quest and endless fall

Perched in the landing out of reach of the evil queen
When she comes running, her fetish slippers wearing
We’ll be hidden deep in our castle built with sheets
Would you like some tea? The cookies box you left empty
Imagining the show we next be producing
Imagining, imagining, imagining

I can’t bite la Madeleine
You left no crumb
I can’t read my unconsciousness
Against the walls
My voice rebounds in this bottomless pit
Endless quest is endless fall
Track Name: Fancied Shell
Fancied shell
You can smell the scent of an old dream failed
The bow cleaves the swell it covers your face with salty stains
Far glimpse of the coast, gleaming shore, craved rock
Far glimpse of the coast, the false notion of a harmless world
These blithe tiny creatures
Oh you’d better not sail closer

If you pitch and fall deep
Climb back up your ship
If you never fit in
Sail another sea

Siren’s song lures your righteous soul to the ocean floor
Don’t stare at the pond the mermaids are strong they will let you drown
Hold your course, the wind rose, bad omen shows
Hold your course to your gleaming shore, craved rock
This storm coming over
Oh you’d better sail much faster

If you pitch and fall deep
Climb back up your ship
If you never fit in
Sail another sea

Fancied shell the bow cleaves the swell
Slippery helm
Fancied shell the bow cleaves the swell
Slippery helm, violent waves

If you pitch and fall deep
Climb back up your ship
If you never fit in
Sail another sea
Track Name: Army of Rain
Drizzle doesn’t touch the floor
Fumble ethereal sparkling drops
See the army of rain
Colonize your damaged lungs
The mold spreads across
Your body and gains your brain
You’re becoming a wreck
Get ready to lose your name

Dreary day, unable to think
Dreary day, someone else’s faith
Dreary day, puppet manipulated
Dreary day, victim of ignorance

This storm with covered face brings a mess, brings a mess
This storm with covered face, erases trace, erases trace

Opaque curtain of drops
Obstructs your wide sight and your thoughts
Watch the army of rain
Take control of your voice
A thread is holding your life
Easy to cut easy to escape
The identity you lost
Sold to the highest bidder
Track Name: Wind Rider
Scattering crumbs in the path
Mislaid lonely compass
A crazy caper about to start
Breathless race against time
And I’m riding like a loon
I tilt crinkled eyes
And I’m riding like a loon
My feet are hypnotized

Grim reaper beckoning me, its bony body on the corner of the streets
Grim reaper smiling at me, reminds me sweetly my name is on its list
Grim reaper is winking me comforting uncertainty, no gambling will save me
Fate is sealed

A taste of freedom in my pores
Clutching my handlebars
I hurtle down the hill
High speed freezes my tears
And I’m riding like a loon
I tilt crinkled eyes
And I’m riding like a loon
My feet are hypnotized

Grim reaper beckoning me, its bony body on the corner of the streets
Grim reaper smiling at me, reminds me sweetly my name is on its list
Grim reaper is winking me comforting uncertainty, no gambling will save me
Fate is sealed

I will keep on cleaving the wind
I won’t let fear paralyze my feet
I know my name is on the list
I will go on
Track Name: Shovel Gang
False steps I get used to them
They saw my path waiting hidden
If I fall I shall lick the floor
Tasty view of a dangerous spot
You, you stare
You’re wondering why I’m naked
I hope you enjoy your day

You’re wondering why I’m naked
Among all these people standing
Will you throw the first stone?
You dirty wild soul
Will you throw the first stone?
You dirty wild soul
You’re staring
You’re staring

Hush hush whispers underground
Dig the grave of my dull fame
Shovel gang swooping in
Watch out! Eyes are everywhere
You, you stare
You’re wondering why I’m naked
I hope you enjoy your day

You’re wondering why I’m naked
Among all these people standing
Will you throw the first stone?
You dirty wild soul
You will throw the first stone
You dirty wild soul

I’m no longer naked
Who’s to blame? You
You won’t see all my shades
You don’t care, you
