Lyrics

Casino

Written By: Dauphinais / Thomas

My life is a casino
And I’m supposed to go
Where the sense of life is
Struck down

My life is a casino
Illusions we grow
Support my empty sight
And it’s not right

Come out
Anywhere else
To win for what
Come out
Anywhere else
Do you still enjoy?

My life is a casino
And I’m supposed to know
Where the sense of life is
Struck down

My life is a casino
Stop to need it so
I thought you had chosen to go through
Don’t you?

Come out
Anywhere else
To win for what
Come out
Anywhere else
Do you still enjoy?

Cannot break away
No more we could say

We’re out of time

Cannot break away
No more we could say

Underground

Written By: J. Dauphinais / D. Thomas


Hello tell me why you’re still waiting
It seems like you’ve been lost enough

Come on no matter what we used to say
It seems like you’ve been pushed enough

And now give those words a secret place
It seems like you’ll have to keep faith

Underground will never let you down

You don’t need no excuses from the past
It seems like things are moving fast

So look through the windows attentively
Does it seem to set you free?

Underground will never let you down

For everything you should have done
Or anyone you might become
For all the times you felt unknown
Not to the world but to yourself

And now I’m here it has always been
And now you’re here it has always been
Now you have to return from where’s the underground

Underground will never let you down

Hello tell me why you’re still waiting
It seems like you’ve been lost enough

Come on no matter what we used to say
It seems like you can stop it all
