Track Name: PERSONNAL
a l'ombre d'une grande Dame
a l'ombre de Sappho
de la pleine lune moins une

l'histoire personnelle est une archive dans laquelle on puise les couleurs de l'humeur, douces ou sombres
a l'orizon, sur le long ponton, les pietons se promenent dans l'autre pays -filoxenie
a l'orizon, sur le long ponton, les pietons se promenent en Turquie

tout l'monde en chasse
tout l'monde en proie
tout l'monde en bave
tout l'monde y croit
it's evolution Harry!
