Biography

Your Favorite Enemies' distinctive blend of dirty and polished type of sonic textures, along with their introspective poetry and symbolist type of lyrical approach gathered fanatics from all different musical backgrounds into a defining communion of high level noise, post-punk, psych, shoegaze and prog rock.
Well known for their old school DIY dedicated ethos, for being fierce human rights advocates and for their insanely unique scenic let go type of live performances, the six members of the band devote every aspect of their career based on their community values.
Sonically twisted, lyrically juxtaposed symbolistic and creative polemics are amongst the few aspects that make Your Favorite Enemies one of the most exciting, intriguing and artistically fascinating ventures to emerge on the musical front scene over the last couple of years.

Lyrics

Midnight's Crashing

Written By: Alex Foster

The streets are filled with lonely ghosts;
Millions of flares up in the air;
Colors I've learned to fear the most
Too beautiful for me stranger,

I've veiled my eyes a thousand times
Hiding secrets deep down inside
Gave up my soul to change the frame

Midnight's crashing, looks so empty
The lights are gone, my bones are dry
Need one more wish before goodbye
Midnight's crashing, look so empty
The lights are gone, my bones are dry
Need one more wish before goodbye

When dreams are filled with hopeless dawn
Millions of stars without a shine
I keep my head close to the ground
Waiting for God, whispering you're mine

I've veiled my eyes a thousand times
Hiding secrets deep down inside
Gave up my soul to change the frame

Midnight's crashing, looks so empty
The lights are gone, my bones are dry
Need one more wish before goodbye
Midnight's crashing, looks so empty
The lights are gone, my bones are dry
Need one more wish before goodbye

I use to pray, to believe
But it's all the same,
Love wasn't made to deceive
I use to pray, to believe
But it's all the same,
Love wasn't made to deceive

Midnight's crashing, looks so empty
The lights are gone, my bones are dry
Need one more wish before goodbye
Midnight's crashing, looks so empty
The lights are gone, my bones are dry
Need one more wish before goodbye

A single touch, a perfect score
A burning church with open doors

Open Your Eyes (Hit Single)

Written By: Your Favorite Enemies

Between suicide and all your dirty lies
Are you looking sad for girls
Are you looking bad for sympathy

It’s getting hard to say open your eyes
Needles haven’t fixed anything
It’s getting hard to say open your eyes

I guess we’re millions of faces
Waiting somewhere for somebody else’s place
To feel like home

I guess we’re millions of faces
Waiting somewhere for somebody else’s place
To feel like home

Love is a refuge with fears and doubts
It’s the Jesus on your necklace
Love is a silence to your cry outs
Sleepless hideouts

Love is a refuge with fears and doubts
It’s the Jesus on your necklace
Love is a silence to your cry outs
The cheapest the fabulous

Between suicide and secrets that you hide
Are you feeding pain like birds
Are you trading pearls for misery

It’s getting hard to say open your eyes
Needles haven’t fixed anything
It’s getting hard to say open your eyes

I guess we’re millions of faces
Waiting somewhere for somebody else’s place
To feel like home

Love is a refuge with fears and doubts
It’s the Jesus on your necklace
Love is a silence to your cry outs
Sleepless hideouts

Love is a refuge with fears and doubts
It’s the Jesus on your necklace
Love is a silence to your cry outs
The cheapest the fabulous

(Memory’s the same)
Are you looking sad for girls, are you
Are you looking bad for sympathy
(Memory’s the same)
Are you feeding pain like birds, are you
Are you trading pearls for misery

(Chorale)

We’re millions of faces
Waiting somewhere for somebody else’s place
To feel like home

Love is a refuge with fears and doubts
It’s the Jesus on your necklace
Love is a silence to your cry outs
Sleepless hideouts

Love is a refuge with fears and doubts
It’s the Jesus on your necklace
Love is a silence to your cry outs
The cheapest the fabulous

Between suicide and all your dirty lies
Are you feeding pain like birds
Are you trading pearls for misery
Open your eyes

Little Sister

Written By: Alex Foster - Ben Lemelin

Dressed with invisible pearls and lighted colors
She’s a broken flower in a huge wounded body
Traveling for years to find some place to stay
She loses herself in someone else’s, someone else’s tragedy

Spinning round like the gypsy fallen queen
Schizophrenic shining secretly
(Waiting sometimes)
For the man who used to say
(Waiting sometimes)
How wonderful she used to be

Tell me little sister is it warm and safe in there
Your face is like winter and your eyes seem so dry
Any words to fill the blanks, speak out little sister
(Any words to fill the blanks, speak out little sister)
Are you waiting for me somewhere deep inside
(Are you waiting deep inside)

Standing on the corner she’s trying sometimes
To touch my world, to reach my side of the wire
Walking the whole universe to cross the line

Spinning round like the gypsy fallen queen
Schizophrenic shining secretly
(Crying sometimes)
For the man who used to say
(Crying sometimes)
How wonderful she used to be

Tell me little sister is it warm and safe in there
Your face is like winter and your eyes seem so dry
Any words to fill the blanks, speak out little sister
(Any words to fill the blanks, speak out little sister)
Are you waiting for me somewhere deep inside
(Are you waiting deep inside)

Carousel has slowly stopped spinning around
(Spinning around)
Alice won’t be back this time, Wonderland’s fading
As she closes the lights and drops the bottle down
Wonderland’s fading, Wonderland’s fading


Tell me little sister is it warm and safe in there
Your face is like winter and your eyes seem so dry
Tell me little sister is it warm and safe in there
(Your face is like winter and your eyes seem so dry)
Your face is like winter and your eyes seem so dry
(Any words to fill the blanks)
Speak out little sister
(Speak out little sister)
Are you waiting for me somewhere deep inside
(Are you waiting deep inside)
Are you waiting

The Messenger (Dissidia - Final Fantasy)

Written By: Alex Foster

The Messenger is standing at the gate

Ready to let go, ready for the crush

Too late for whispers, too late for the blush

The past is Mercy when the future's glow

Kneeling journey dressed in a cloak of shadows

The hunting's grim for the innocent eyes

Communion's prey is a cup of sorrows

But faith is colours for the humbling cries

The Spirit's over town, waiting to hit the floor

Blooming white sky for the voice of one calling

- Tonight- fate's the red crown around your framed door

Time's scattering the seeds of the mourning daylight

The avenger is roaming through the land

Ready for the clash, for the lasting gash

Mothers kissing sons with a staff in hands

The bride is shining when the groom is gold

Shouting worship choked in a wave of silver

The offering's grief for Deceiver's pride,

Salvation man is a cup of fire

But hope is the star on a morning tide

The Spirit's over town, waiting to hit the floor

Blooming white sky for the voice of one calling

- Tonight- fate's the red crown around your framed door

Time's scattering the seeds of the mourning daylight

The Pilgrims are gathering and the marching band's howling

Home is a dream slowly disappearing under rogue

Compassion is the flag a righteous man will hold, cause

Tomorrow's written in the gospel dusk of his soul

The Spirit's over town, waiting to hit the floor

Blooming white sky for the voice of one calling

- Tonight- fate's the red crown around your framed door

Time's scattering the seeds of the mourning daylight

Would You Believe

Written By: Alex Foster - Ben Lemelin

WOULD YOU BELIEVE

I would have loved to be somebody else
(would you believe, would you believe)
I’ve cut myself, and prayed for death
(would you believe, would you believe)
This is unreal I realize, we’re too young for regrets
(would you believe, would you believe)
I gave it up, gave it up, hard to deny

I would have loved to feel merciful grace
(would you believe, would you believe)
I’ve drunk from the cup, feel on my knees
(would you believe, would you believe)
I’ve whipped myself, apologized, but we’re too young for regrets
I gave it up, gave it up, hard to deny

This is this time, I should say I’ve had enough
It’s better to dream than live and deny

Would you believe if I swear, if I swear
We’re spoiling hope bleedings the lies
We’re way too numb to feel alive

Would you believe if I swear, if I swear
Can’t you read between the lines
We’re screaming love without a cry

I would have loved to be somebody else
(would you believe, would you believe)
I’ve cut myself and prayed for death
(would you believe, would you believe)
After all the pills I realize, we’re too young for regrets
(would you believe, would you believe)
I gave it up, gave it up, hard to deny

It’s better to dream than live and deny

This is this time, I should say I’ve had enough
It’s better to dream than live and deny

Would you believe if I swear, if I swear
We’re spoiling hope bleedings the lies
We’re way too numb to feel alive

Would you believe if I swear, if I swear
Can’t you read between the lines
We’re screaming love without a cry

Would you believe if I swear, if I swear

Would you believe if I swear, if I swear
We’re spoiling hope bleedings the lies
We’re way too numb to feel alive

Would you believe if I swear, if I swear
Can’t you read between the lines
We’re screaming love without a cry

Speak out, speak out

Where Did We Lose Each Other

Written By: Alex Foster

It's been a while isn't it
Where did we lose each other
Is it somewhere between
Your skin, my grief and weakness

Where did we lose each other
It's strange somehow (illusions feeding memories)

There must be dreams I can breathe
Love’s long way gone (winter's crawling over me)

It's been a while, it's been too long
I should have told you everything,
Needed to keep it in, to keep the sorrows inside

Your eyes, your eyes, looking at me
Your blame, my shame, a thousand whispers

I'm falling down, I’m on my knees
Just like a soul who lost his way, away, away
The cut is deep, but ain't too late
Need salvation to light my way, away, away

I'm just a dream who's been fading away
A craving ghost that kept running way
Grace's out of sight, I won't give it away
Just give it away, can’t give it away…

It’s been a while isn’t it,
Glad to be back from despairs
I never thought it could
Be good to scream in laughter

Where did we lose each other
It’s strange somehow (I’ve been dressed up in your fears)

I’ve learned to lie in my grief
Tear’s long way gone (I’m not sleeping at your feet )

I'm falling down, I’m on my knees
Just like a soul who lost his way, away, away
The cut is deep, but ain't too late
Need salvation to light my way, away, away

I'm just a dream who's been fading away
A craving ghost that kept running way
Grace's out of sight, I won't give it away
Just give it away, can’t give it away…

Je suis l'hiver, je suis le vent
Une saison morte, cent fois trahie
Le coeur dupé, giffle du temps
Tout est perdu, je suis brisé
J'ai cru en toi, fardée de blanc,
Tu m'as menti, souillé dès l'aube,
Suivi tes pas, vertige d'âme
Je ne t'aime plus, je reprends vie

I'm falling down, I’m on my knees
Just like a soul who lost his way, away, away
The cut is deep, but ain't too late
Need salvation to light my way, away, away

I'm just a dream who's been fading away
A craving ghost that kept running way
Grace's out of sight, I won't give it away
Just give it away, can’t give it away…
