VinceS I don't know what it is, but I like every project (Kyunin, Fenndango, King Hiss, ...) where Jan Coudron is involved. "All Tongues of Babel" is again a strong release after their "White Coma Light" from 2008.

Track Name: La Mala Hora
I keep on thinking about the damage done
I keep on thinking: “what the hell have I done wrong?”
The devil dances in my hand
But god is on my side
It is a comfortable religion that eases my mind
Now, I feel your body, feel your body
yeah, I feel your body, feel your body, now

We’re on a ride, Justine
The signs are all clear
So I’m taking over here
We’re on a ride, Justine
One mustn’t be afraid
When the maniac comes out to play

Punishment is accepted. I smile and bow my head
I’m too weak to resist temptation, ‘cause you make me feel like a saint.
The devil dances in my hand
But god is on my side
It is a comfortable religion that eases my mind
Now, I feel your body, feel your body
Now, I feel your body, feel your body, now

We’re on a ride, Justine
The signs are all clear
So I’m taking over here
We’re on a ride, Justine
One mustn’t be afraid
When the maniac comes out to play

Something is black inside me
What’s going on?
Confession justifies the wrong
Something is black inside me
What’s going on?
Confession purifies the wrong

We’re on a ride, Justine
We’re on a ride, Justine
Now, I feel your body, feel your body
Now, I feel your body, feel your body, now

Come over here, I need some healing
Come over here, I will take care of you

We’re on a ride Justine
We’re on a ride Justine
Track Name: Jerk
I take whatever I want, whatever I need and do as I please
It sounds like a plan. At least for a while
And when I get bored. I’ll mess with somebody else

Now, You were meant to follow
And they were meant to lead
I just try to hold on and have my kicks before I leave
This burden I bear, is dragging me down
I just want some peace of mind inside of my head

Chorus:
Put your hands on my face
Put your hands on my - face
Put your hands on my face

I know, you’ve heard this before
But lies are so sweet like candy, you want more and more
While I just try to hold on to my ego and my dreams
This burden I bear, is dragging me down
I just want some peace of mind inside of my head

Chorus
Put your hands on my face
Put your hands on my - face
Put your hands on my face

Just have some patience with me
I know it’s hard to believe
I’ve been a jerk
But I’ll change, yeah. Change yeah

Put your hands on my face

Put your hands on my face
Track Name: The Box
There’s a man in this dark place
He’s the one who’s doing it
Every single day
They brought us here from where
It puzzles me again
Every single day
Like it’s all one big joke
I’m waiting for the punch line
So I can laugh to sleep
There’s a man in this dark place
He’s the one who knows
How this shit will end

Why!
Are we victims of this life
I’m walking in circles, in circles
And like an animal I am looking for a way out
I’m putting too much stress upon myself
Upsetting me
upsetting me

Pile up the boxes and put them against the wall
I’ve opened the first one, it makes no sense at all
Perhaps some exercise will do me good
So bring it on, bring it on, bring it on now


Why… are we victims of this life
I am wondering… Why… are we victimised
Why… are we victims of this life
I am wondering … Why… are we victimised
Now bring it, bring it on, now
Bring it on, bring it on, now
Bring it on , bring it on, now
Bring it on, bring it on, bring it on
Now

Look into my eye… shit inside my soul
Look into my eye… shit inside my soul

Look into my eye…
So, what do you think you see?
What do you think you see?
Shit inside my soul, shit inside my soul
Track Name: The Alchemist
Where can I find my own legend?
Is our universe well disposed?
Are these questions just part of
Me relating to a bigger soul?

Facing my own faults
I’m trying to make it right
Trying to learn of my faults
Faults
I’m trying to make it right
Trying to learn of my faults

Am I changing
this metal into gold
Or am I bound to disintegrate?

All these shadows are like vessels
send them out and hope they won’t come back
There is something they call freedom
what’s the point if you don’t make a choice

Facing my own faults
I’m trying to make it right
Trying to learn of my faults
Faults
I’m trying to make it right
Trying to learn of my faults

Am I changing
this metal into gold
Or am I bound to disintegrate?

Regeneration
It takes time to find a way
It takes time to find a recipe
Regeneration
It takes time to make it right
To turn this nightmare into a dream

Am I changing
this metal into gold
Or am I bound to disintegrate?
Track Name: Naked
Naked
I’m Naked
I’m laying with you
Tasting the sparks of your fire
Still I feel like I am lacking space
and lacking time
and question why
I lay Naked with you

Take me
Scratch me
Join me in my head
Your scent is making me high
I broke the looking glass and closed the door
It’s been so hard
But we’ve survived
I lay - Naked

Lay down
Lose yourself, we stand alone
What’s the use of being strong
Intoxicated we fall down
We all fall down
Don’t stop me now
No reasons to believe
I’m getting colder
Don’t stop me now

Wasted
I’m wasted
We’re falling to soon
I’m drowning our jewelry in paint
because their all fake
you still hold on to the memory
of all those yesterdays
But why should I care?
I die Naked with you

Lay down
Lose yourself, we stand alone
What’s the use of being strong
Intoxicated we fall down
We all fall down
Don’t stop me now
No reasons to believe
I’m getting colder
Don’t stop me now
Track Name: Walk
Walk away
I just walk away again,
I spend my days like a millionaire
Buy me a life! Give in to greed!
Lost, alone and I’m in need

I just walk away
I just walk away again,
Spit my brain, disciple of hate
Shouting loud at the barricades
Work and shake the hand that feeds
I just walk
I just walk

I’m not in the mood of facing my own reflection
We medicate ourselves to deal with all our fears

A stranger to my own
I’m trying but I always tend to fuck things up

Walk away
I just walk away again,
I spend my days like a millionaire
Buy me a knife! Pretend I’m free!
Scum and walk with other sheep
I just walk
I just walk

I’m not in the mood of facing my own reflection, yeah
We medicate ourselves to deal with all our fears

A stranger to my own
I’m trying but I always tend to fuck things up

Walk away
I just walk away again
Track Name: All Tongues of Babel
Sure my perspective
Is quite ineffective
twisted opinion,
pretentious reflections of life

Sick of these lies
Won’t lay my trust in the system
Your vote feeds the cancer

We all fight for ourselves
It’s the essence of life
The moment you crown yourself
It’s all done
And power is corrupting your senses

I know you would like to give me hand
Instead you are slapping my face
Don’t worry, it’s human nature

Sure my perspective
Is quite ineffective
twisted opinion,
pretentious reflections of life

Sick of these lies
Won’t lay my trust in the system
Your vote feeds the cancer

As soon as now, politics fail
Everyone is divided and opposed

As soon as now, the system breaks
Find yourself alone
Track Name: Indifferent
I’m waking up ‘cause the cabin is on fire
They all leave, but I’m so tired
I’d rather stay and watch the place burn down
Maybe one day you’ll understand

When shit goes down and sides are taken,
you find out soon who was fakin'
What’s left for me, are footprints in the sand
and ashes glowing in my hand
glowing in my hand

They don’t care if you care
They will treat you like a fool
They don’t care if you care
It makes no difference what we do
I wanna be indifferent

For us it’s prison everywhere
The guards are trained to be your friend
Their eyes are flat, their voice is calm
Maybe one day you’ll understand
When shit goes down and sides are taken,
you find out soon who was fakin'
What’s left for me, are walls around my head
and pills that keep me from going mad
I am going mad

They don’t care if you care
They will treat you like a fool
They don’t care if you care
It makes no difference what we do
I wanna be indifferent

There’s a man in this dark place
He’s the one who’s doing it
Every single day
They brought us here from where
It puzzles me again
Every single day

They don’t care if you care

They brought us here from where
It puzzles me again
Every single day
