Track Name: Saved by the monster
You drop down in a crack, and you’re rocked by the stir.
Yet nobody comes around, but a woman-like monster...
She’d bring you a rope, then she’d help you to climb,
Only you’re not to ignore she may have done a lot of crimes.

She cries : “Don’t be afraid, I won’t ask for your soul...
But I need you to accept that a monster got your saviour’s role.”

All you can think is “fear not the monster !”
All you can try is live near the danger.

Now you’re someone in debt, could you help her the same ?
Will you deem she’s but a threat, or try to seize her without blame ?

She says :
“If you wish I’d never been real, then you wish I’d never saved you...
I may not be a guardian angel, but I was the one for your rescue.”

All you can think is “fear not the monster !”
All you can try is live near the danger.

“Fear not the monster, live with your danger”
Now you can’t deny she’s breathing in the same world.
“Fear not the monster, live with your danger”
You’ll never forget she’s walking on the same earth.

“Fear not the monster, live with the monster !”
Saved by the monster...
Track Name: Years and seconds (acoustic)
Time is made of seconds that will matter like years,
And time is made of years that should matter like seconds...

When I try to remember you as a few instants,
You’re always here like many years in my existence.

In two long minutes, you can live a great story.
With five more minutes, you may doom your destiny.

But if your life is wasted,
Maybe you can replace it...
And though you feel rejected
It doesn’t prove you can’t fit.

Time is made of years that should matter like seconds,
And time is made of seconds that will matter like years...

When I try to know the one who shared such good moments,
It always dwells like someone else in my remembrance.

Into your looking, I once read the whole story.
Now, through your looking, I still watch for a remedy.

But if your life is wasted,
Maybe you can replace it...
And though you feel rejected
It doesn’t prove you can’t fit.

Between your lies of despair
And your illusions of release,
Don’t make that while your nightmare.
Or you know it won’t ever cease...
