about

"An audacious album pulsing with rhythm, colour and, above all, sumptuous melody." - Chris Evans, Allmusic

"Revolutionary Son est aussi beau que le premier, la bande-son du paradis, chantée par un chœur d’anges déchus." - Stéphane Deschamps, Les Inrocks

(translation: His second self-produced album, Revolutionary Son, is as beautiful as the first, the soundtrack to paradise, sung by a choir of fallen angels.")

Track Name: Revolutionary Son
I shall return, I shall return
I shall return, the people cannot be more blind
I open wide, twist free their sighs
and they go bow-bow-bow-bom, bow-bow-bow-bom, bow...

I shall return, I shall return
I shall upturn the boats and battleships in stride
Run them aground, make trumpets sound
and they go bow-bow-bow-bom, bow-bow-bow-bom, bow...

In junior high you made me cry, you made me sob
Since then I've dreamt of flying high above you all
Now fortified, I'll level mountains to their cores
Why do I feel so sorry and so small?

Like the water that revives us, like the ether that unties
I shall return, I shall return

Sweet home, sweet home, sweet home, sweet home
Track Name: Brights Unbrightened
Our house, watching it fade away
Our house, watching it fade away

To find my way, into your heart, to find my way
I walk for days, to find the rolling ocean, I walk for days

Brights unbrightened and darks undraped
the pavement buckles, I'm in bed again
The taste and the smell of my own sweet life
all faces are swimming in the subway light

Sweet heart, please stay
without your gaze upon me, I fade away

Our house, watching it fade away
Our house, watching it fade away
Track Name: Supplicant's Song
Holding horses in their stalls
we bend and fold, we bend and we fold
Lights mirrored countlessly
through countless and mirrored walls
Straight to the bloom, rose-red inner life

Blind and restore us, blind and restore us
Blind and restore, blind and restore

Calling softly, calling low
we bend and flow, we bend and we flow
Hopes and horror shows
are all tangled and recomposed
Straight to my wound, rose-red inner life

Faithful to the core, but unsteady now
- I cannot know your face, but I can see it fall

What does this universal light show arouse?
- Now in the darkest space I feel along the wall

Hopes and horror shows
are all tangled and recomposed
Straight to my wound, rose-red inner life

Blind and restore us, blind and restore us
Blind and restore, blind and restore
Track Name: The Whites
I'm on my way, I won't let you stay
open my heart and soak it in
I know these eyes, they lie and disguise
furrowed and blind, I'm a newborn

I want all my wildest secrets told to children alone
They might light a fire inside their minds

There must be a hole inside his head, inside his heart,
inside his soul, his soul is perforated, flapping in the wind
Like a dove, or like a pigeon who is nervously intended
on the crumbs beneath your feet to find the nutrients he needs

Glowing inside, hallowed and alive
watching the whites of their wandering eyes
We must abide, even idolize
for all we know it's a new world

and I want all my wildest secrets told to children alone
They might light a fire inside their minds

There must be a hole inside his head, inside his heart,
inside his soul, his soul is perforated, flapping in the wind
Like a dove, or like a pigeon who is nervously intended
on the crumbs beneath your feet to find the nutrients he needs
Track Name: Wood Smoke
Riding my bike through roads that wind, flowing to you
I cannot find the way, lead me over, lead me over one last time

And we roll tonight, lose control, don't fight
follow wood smoke through shadows cold and wide
Forget me, I'm already gone

When I was a child with glowing eyes I feel for you
Rise, seasons! Ride the waves! They get bolder, so much bolder over time

And we roll tonight, lose control, don't fight
Follow wood smoke through shadows cold and wide
Forget me, I'm already gone

And at night we dream, a darkened stream
we all become make believe
Track Name: A New Adventure
It looks a lot like a new adventure
sailed across an invisible sea
Well I was always wondering where you went
when the bow of your ship hit me

You take a step in a new direction
take a choice from infinity
But when a voice cries, somebody's soul is spent
then we;ve lost our priorities

The big sky and the sky in your eyes
there's one for the ocean and one for the idolized
The big sky and the sky in your eyes
there's one for the mountains and one for the civilized

The big sky and the sky in your eyes
there's one for the ocean and one for the idolized
The big sky and the sky in your eyes
there's one for the mountains and one for the rich

It looks a lot like a new adventure
sailed across an invisible sea
Well I was always wondering where you went
when the bow burst through in a rowdy mess
making little children cry, and their mothers hide their eyes
Track Name: Ayres D'Cunha
It's nearly over, it's over, it's over
After the last song, the last song, the last song
Has left in silence, has left in silence, has left in silence
Some secret order, some secret order
is left behind it:

Ayres D'Cunha, D'Cunha, D'Cunha
Ayres D'Cunha, D'Cunha, D'Cunha
Ayres D'Cunha, D'Cunha, D'Cunha
Ayres D'Cunha, D'Cunha, D'Cunha
