about

"SOS HELP ME, I got to do something..." est une phrase tirée de la dernière séquence du film "Johnny got his Gun" (1971) par Dalton Trumbo.

lyrics

Mother, can you explain to me
Why I wasn't born with a gun
I spit bullet-words instead
I split my body in two selfish fuckers

Father, can you explain to me
Why I wasn't born with a grenade in my hand
I keep a time bomb instead
'Til the Tic Toc turn to BIG BANG

pre chorus

I throw a brick at my ennemies' heads
An eye for an eye, they bled my blood
A tooth for a tooth don't you want to hear
The best part of the truth ?

chorus

Long teeth, small tricks
Oh baby cry cry cry
Is that all you've got ?
You fucking coward
Don't you think it's time to act

And brother, can you explain to me
When we suddenly stop growing up
And the camera with its sad black eye
Shoots the marks on my face
Oh baby can you explain to me
Why I still have no idea
'Bout what I need
I'm still trying to kill something in me
But am I aiming at the right target ?

(pre chorus + chorus)

Outro :

Passion is still
Setting me on fire
Oh truth, still confusing
Past with future
Well I know, I know future is NOW

Well I got to do something with my arms, legs, mouth, ears
My face does reflect bad long nights with or without company
And there are so many things to say to my enemies,
My lovers, my shrink, my emplo-liars, ghosts, desires... wet dreams

Oh next step is the end, so I could start to live, I could start to live
SOS HELP ME
Got to do some-thing

Got to do, got to do, got to do some-thing
Got to do, got to do, got to do some-thing
I got to do some fucking thing !
