Ain't no other way

paroles

I went to the station
Planning some vacation
There was no one there
To show me where to go
I went to the station
I went to the station
Just say so

Went to see the doctor
To get some prescription
There was no one there
To give me what I wanted
went to see the doctor
Went to see the doctor
Just say so

Came across a copper and asked
How comes there was no one round here
He pat me on the head
Slapped me in the face
Kicked me in the belly
Pepper sprayed my eyes

Went to see the preacher
For I needed salvation
There was no one there
To tell me who to ask
Went to see the preacher
Went to see the preacher
Just say so

Went back to the station
Feeling kinda puzzled
there was no one there
To show me where to go
Went back to the station
Went back to the station
Just say so

Came across a copper and asked
How comes there was no one round here
He pat me on the head
Slapped me in the face
Kicked me in the belly
Pepper sprayed my eyes

God damned copper

Out ! (Song For Chelsea Manning)

Comes a time when time itself
Way too fast when way too slow
Comes a time when time itself
Time becomes part of the past

& I'm trying hard to understand
Just what it takes to be a man
I've read the books,seen the movies
& In the end,it ain't so groovy

For I wanna be
Just wanna be
The one I want me to be
Wanna be
Just wanna be
Wanna be
I wanna be
The one I want me to be
Wanna be
I wanna be
Wanna be
Wanna be

Out !
I want out !
I want out !
Out !

Comes a time on the other hand
When time & time & time again
Comes a time on the other hand
When time is right,right on time

& It's way too hard to understand
How to get rid of that kinda itch
When time like flies slips through your hands
Way too hard to understand

For I wanna be
Just wanna be
The one I want me to be
Wanna be
Just wanna be
Wanna be
I wanna be
The one I want me to be
Wanna be
Just wanna be
Wanna be
Wanna be

Out !
I want out !
I want out !
Out !

I've never been that good
At saying goodbye
There's so much on my mind
That don't pass through my mouth
It's like my teeth are acting like a gate
And that someone somewhere
Has got control over it
I've never been that good
At saying goodbye
There's so much on my mind
That don't pass through my mouth

What more can I do ?
I'm standing here in front of you
I can see it in your eyes
I can see what you're seeing ain't right

I ain't that good either
At staying in touch
I've never been as such
& I know that it hurts
Those who may care somehow
& Are wondering what
Went wrong,when & how
To finally come to that
I ain't that good either
At staying in touch
I've never been as such
& I know that it hurts

What more can I do ?
I'm standing here in front of you
I can see it in your eyes
I can see what you're seeing ain't right

Can you hear Lazarus coughing ?
A sound so odd,so peculiar
Your bones do seem to remember
Do they ?

Can you hear Lazarus coughing ?
You'd better keep your distance
It may not smell of roses
Does it ?

Have you heard Lazarus coughing ?
Have you heard Lazarus coughing ?
Seems like he caught
A nasty case of flu
Way down there
Way down when

Can you hear Lazarus coughing ?
Do you hear no birds are singing ?
Has it ever been like that ?
Has it ?

Maybe he'd like company
His distant eyes tell stories
Maybe he'd like to go back
To what he left behind

Have you heard Lazarus coughing ?
Have you heard Lazarus coughing ?
'seems like he caught
A nasty case of flu
Way down there
Way down when

(They hate us
We hate them
We can't win)

The voice on the radio
Said that it was not safe
For anyone breathing
To go out today

I didn't particularly feel like goin' out,anyway
Pacing up & down my apartment
checking my mobile phone
Just in case I missed a message or a call
It's been some time
I've stopped checking my home phone

Waiting
Waiting

Morning, noon, afternoon, night
The voice on the radio
Says that no one's safe

Same as yesterday
I don't particularly feel touched by it, anyway
There's a veil on my senses
Wrapping my feelings
Numbing everything
That's not connected to you

Waiting
Tied to the clock
Waiting
Tied to the clock
Tick tock goes my ticker
Tied to the clock
Tick tock goes my ticker
Tied to the clock

The voice on the radio
Said that it was not safe
For anyone breathing
To go out today

Waiting
Waiting
Tied to the clock
Waiting

If you know of any way
For a guy like me
Not to go astray
Please understand
Silence is no answer
& There ain't no other way
There ain't no other way
Silence is no answer
When all is said & done
There ain't no other way

I've got reds, whites & blues
But can't seem to remember
What function any of'em may have

I'm doin' my best
(Have you ever been tested ?)
The best that I can

I do have a problem
Don't know what it is
I'm so tired & worried
Don't know what it is
Silence is no answer
& There ain't no other way
There ain't no other way
Silence is no answer
When all is said & done
There ain't no other way

I've got reds, whites & blues
But can't seem to remember
What function any of'em may have

If you know of any way
For a guy like me
Not to go astray

Please understand
When all is said & done
There ain't no other way
Ain't no other way







Fondé en 2009, Dicktracy Lords joue un rock'n'roll énergique et personnel.

La première formation à 5 enregistre un cd 6 titres en 2011 puis un LP en 2013 "Mystery Needs Company".

La formation se regroupe à 4 et sort le Mini LP "Ain't no other way" chez Mauvaise Foi Records.

Les chansons, parfois sombres ou violentes, racontent le quotidien de leur protagonistes ou leur destin tragiques. Influencé par tout ce qu'ils aiment, musique comprise, les Dicktracy Lords n'ajoutent pas de drapeau à leur musique, ils la font le plus organiquement possible, en tension et en torsions.
