Keep on running around While I am preparing myself to die Haven't you been Avoiding the question, thinking you'd get away When it comes I'm so gonna be ready you will be dancing to my burial
2.
I'm quite sure some will be overtaken But I don't get why people should Worship a god or another That's a rule phoney folks made Those who keep the power inside Those who made history become real I chose to fear all gods There is none I mess with You guys want it to shine And easy to be caught, harder to be found Don't be in a hurry, I'mma work on it You won't have a second thought It's bound to die off Like we give food to the pigs I've prep this shit, so you can eat it I'm not doing this for pride, but for lust Listen to it properly, this is my worst No work, no taste, there's nothing at all But the king is a fuckin' client And you wanna be part of it, You think that's a favor ? I think that's a privilege ! So be ready to get pleasure Deep down in mediocrity Your soul's gonna rise And I'mma crawl on the ground Like you'd crawl for food I've learned to admit it and play the rules But you didn't get anything, The client is King (Chorus) I fear all of you More than the gods I'm not messing up I fear all of you I fit the circumstances Selling my soul to the tallest Ready to bow at the first glimpse And claim my rights if needed Screaming, running, fighting, laughing There's one thing I won't forget I chose to fear all gods Christian, pagan, whatever
3.
My hands up high My legs well tied Trying to reach out But I'm so tired Too hard for me To pray and weep I'd live for now My Lord lean on me I'm calm stand still Resolved I am Now is the time My doubts fade in My strength arises My Lord lean on me Show me the guideline My Lord show me The guideline

Ain't no more motion, Your left leg isn't moving anymore Ain't no more heat or cold, you can’t feel anything in your right leg Went in this room the other day, Where you can't let your wishes grow Lost your self esteem, Put on weight, your hair's fallen Ain't no more abs now, You can't breathe, and you got sick You lost your head now, Asking me for a way out Ain't no more hope now, They put you into induced coma Ain't no God or justice You died on Christmas day
6.
Teach me how to live Preach to me what to think Whine when I disagree Deny when you're proven wrong Hide behind your hurt feelings Unable to breach the fence Unbiased perceptions Will make this ego yield Feel me changing now

about

PRESENTATION :

Elefent voulait écrire sur la renaissance. Oui mais voilà, pour renaître il faut d'abord faire son deuil. « Burials » : c'est cette préface universelle. Des inspirations traditionnelles aux sonorités actuelles, de la guitare Weissenborn aux percussions tribales, Elefent délivre, sur ce premier EP, un folk résolument singulier.

PRESSE :

« Elefent trace sa route dans le très riche paysage musical tourangeau avec un son folk, teinté d’influences de musiques urbaines subtiles et vibrantes. Elefent, ça vous prend aux tripes, on les suit les yeux fermés. » - LA NOUVELLE REPUBLIQUE (lc.cx/QJy3)

« Que ce soit en solo ou en formule à quatre, la musique d’Elefent invite à un voyage dans un ailleurs qui ne donne pas son nom et qui n’en a pas besoin. » - LE PROG (lc.cx/QJyk)

« Fascinant sur scène, Elefent convainc aussi sur ce premier disque : Burials » - 37 DEGRES (lc.cx/QJyN)

« Il y a une empreinte assez forte sur l'ensemble du disque, une vraie homogénéité et un vrai propos esthétique dans le son. On sent le mélange de toute la culture sonore ancienne dans le jeu de guitare, mais il y a aussi un côté actuel et brillant […] une vraie réussite sur les voix ! » - RADIO BETON (lc.cx/QJyY)

« En bref, Burials est un disque très cohérent et aussi une vraie réussite. Du blues comme on aimerait en entendre plus souvent. » - LA CHRONIQUE MUSIQUE (lc.cx/QJyQ)

« Somptueux ! 9/10 » - ROCK STATION (lc.cx/QJys)
