The Cat Empire - Cinema 2010 (Pochette)

Cinéma, sorti en 2010, comprenant 11 titres dont 'Falling', 'On My Way', 'Feelings Gone' et 'Only Light'. Au top 3 des ventes en Australie.

Selon moi, l'album le plus abouti du groupe ! Qui mêle des textes biens fondés à une musique enjouée, parfois plus dramatique, mais toujours harmonieuse. C'est un cocktail des plus réussis qui replace les Cat Empire au sommet de leur art. Enjoy !


PAROLES & TRADUCTIONS
01 - Waiting

This is the last time I will follow you
This is the last time I will follow you at all
Cos woman you're my trouble
And woman I've been trouble and despair
My only care
Is standing here waiting when you're out there

The wind comes down and all our youth is in loose pages
The wind appeared like you and left the place I'd known
Now words have lost their meaning
The words have lost their meaning and she's bored
And I am bored
I'm standing here waiting and you don't call

I'm standing here waiting and you don't call
I'm standing here waiting but you don't call
I'm standing here waiting
You took my time I still love you the same
But I fell down every time that you
Came, Came, Came
Every time that you came

The leaves fall gently and like autumn she brings sadness
The leaves are left behind and winter's in my bones
But I won't stand here crying
I won't stand here crying anymore
I'm off the floor
I'm standing here waiting for you that's all

I'm standing here waiting and you don't call
I'm standing here waiting but you don't call
I'm standing here waiting
You took my time I still love you the same
But I fell down every time that you
Came, Came, Came
Every time that you came

06 - Shoulders

I saw you walking up the wall
Like the exorcist
When you saw me there you called
Can you spare a fifth?
I used to know you when you were small
How's it come to this?
How does a happy, bright boy
Fall into the rift?

And you carry weight on your shoulders
Won't you see that you are not inside yourself
You put that evil back inside yourself

I saw your Ma the other day
She asked me how you were
Say, 'one day you you'll be fine
But now you do it worse'
She told as she cried that
'No one breaks the curse'
As I looked into her eyes
My heart it nearly burst

And you carry weight on your shoulders
Won't you see that you are not inside yourself
You put that evil back inside yourself

And what if you breathe and see you're good
And what if you reach out, knock on wood
I'm begging you please, won't you be understood
And won't you release, I believe you could

And if you ever wanna dream
I'll help you see the sky
And if you ever wanna scream
About some reason why
And if you ever break the seam
That cuts through your disguise
I love you when you're seen
And do my best to try

To carry weight off your shoulders
Won't you see that you are not here by yourself
Please don't put that evil back inside yourself

And what if you breathe and see you're good
And what if you reach out, knock on wood
I'm begging you please, won't you be understood
And won't you release, I believe you could

And what if you breathe and see you're good
And what if you reach out, knock on wood
I'm begging you please, won't you be understood
And won't you release, I believe you could

11 - Beyond All

Meet me. Underneath the neon light
We'll go wandering into the night
There's something underneath the beat of control
Something. A music that is beyond all
Something. A music that is beyond all

You go to sleep, you wake up, you do it again
And there's a beat, you make up inside of your head
And every street's a river. Be born or be dead
We are all singing this song, but nobody knows how
It's gonna end

Kiss me in the coolness of the night
Take me further from the fire-light
This jungle, no one really knows where to go
Searching for something that is beyond all
We're searching for something that is beyond all

You go to sleep, you wake up, you do it again
Then there's a beat, you make up inside of your head
And every street's a river. Be born or be dead
We are all singing this song, but nobody knows how
It's gonna end

Break me, up until I'm pieces of sand
Blow me up, and scatter me across the land
Our bodies, they're hairy and they're fat and they're old
I'm searching for something that is beyond all
Music, music that is beyond all.

You go to sleep, you wake up, you do it again
Then there's a beat, you make up inside of your head
And every street's a river. Be born or be dead
We are all singing this song, but nobody knows how
It's gonna end

02 - Falling

From the city to the world below
From the strangers to the ones I know
From the darkness to the holy glow
We burn so bright
Can we outlast the show?

From the island to the world of dreams
From the future to the times I've seen
From the righteous to the make believe
We all must leave
But I just want to breathe

Falling
My world's up and I'm almost
Falling
My hands over my shoulders
Falling
I'll dan, dance til I'm old and
Falling
Deep down, onward and

From the pilot to the golden sky
From the dash until the day we die
From the laughter to the lonely cry
We all deny
Lie and multiply

Falling
My world's up and I'm almost
Falling
My hands over my shoulders
Falling
I'll dan, dance til I'm old and
Falling
Deep down, onward and

Well I love you like a raging storm
And I miss you like I'm coming home
And I hold you like a fading song
You send me high, high, higher ... until I'm

Falling... [X2]

07 - The Heart Is A Cannibal

She hates you, then she loves you more
Underneath the shadows of her thoughts, shadows of her thoughts, she rings a bell for you
I wish that she was a statue made of gold and nobody could bring her down

Goodness knows I don't like sadness, she cries before she wakes
And so my friend, if you love her, don't turn away
Don't fight it
Don't run away
We're people, and we're animals
You're thunder, and the heart is a cannibal

I ask you do you love me more than all the men that have ever come before, come before
And when I'm a storm, kiss me, hurt me, heal me with your words, so nobody can ever bring me down

Goodness knows I don't like sadness, she cries before she wakes
And so my friend, if you love her, don't turn away
Don't fight it
Don't run away
We're people, and we're animals
You're thunder, and the heart is a cannibal

When love is gone, your thoughts are calm
Your words are holy, your days are long
Your blood gets older, and your face is old
And the days flow by like water
You miss the stormy weather
And she was gold

Goodness knows I don't like sadness, she cries before she wakes
And so my friend, if you love her, don't turn away
Don't fight it
Don't run away
We're people, and we're animals
You're thunder, and the heart is a cannibal

 
03 - Feeling's Gone

I used to ride up on the hill
And look down at the darkened
Silhouettes of tall black windowsills
And my heart jumped every ledge
Until one bright morning when I woke
I heard bells, girl she gently spoke and said
'Choice my man's to breath or choke
So go die, or learn to hope'
Get back on your way at the end of the day
Under the fire and the rain
The whole big bloody parade until that
That feeling, feeling's gone
You wake up on your own
Sometimes walls come caving in
Sometimes the world just hits your chin
And sometimes shadows haunt your back
And sometimes I feel so flat
Then like some rare eagle on the wind
Well it turns and life comes bursting in
And the earth you thought would beat you down
Lifts up and lights your ground
Get back on your way at the end of the day
Under the fire and the rain
The whole big bloody parade until that
That feeling, feeling's gone
You wake up on your own
Lifts up and sends you homeward bound
Lifts up and then you're found again
Lifts up and turns your world around
still scarred of love lived on the ledge
And the Earth you thought would eat you up
Well it lifts you high and fills your cup carries
And right then I learnt to hope
the point of hope
I knew the way ahead to go
lifts up and clears your hallowed ground
So scared that love lived on the edge
Scared of love lived on the ledge
Like love lived on the ledge
As if my love required a ledge

bring you down
Lifts up, your heart just leaves the ground
and how you love your ground
high above the ground

and the earth you thought would end your song 'song'
lifts up and now ... the feeling's gone feelings gone

And you wonder how on Earth you
When you're high

08 - Reasonably Fine

I lost my shoes I lost my wife
I lost my keys I lost my kite
And though I'm young at heart I'm so much older

Subway eyes and banked up skies
And violent towns and frozen pies
And all them football crowds who lost are cold now

But you're the same as you and I'm the same as me
And hopefully we can find ways to let us be reasonably fine
Reasonably fine, at least to beat my drums in time

Suddenly I've realized
That I won't be here when I die
And life upon this plain is somehow fleeting

Time and all it's precious wine
Is somehow primed to make us whine
And fret even then when we should be sleeping

But you're the same as you and I'm the same as me
And hopefully we can find ways to let us be reasonably fine,
Reasonably fine, at least to play my pretty chimes

Empty cries and hollow toots
And all the signs that have no use
And fingers point accusingly are sinning

Humourless hypocrisy
And all the crimes we didn't see
The sigh that knows the devil might be winning

But you're the same as you and I'm the same as me
And hopefully we can find ways to let us be reasonably fine,
Reasonably fine, at least to let my music shine

And maybe it's the greatest test
A man's surrounded by his death
But reaches out and tastes the sweetest honey

That's how you make me feel
I love you more than death is real
It's sad but in the end it might be funny

That you're the same as you and I'm the same as me
And hopefully we can find ways to let us be reasonably fine,
Reasonably fine, at least to leave an open mind

 
04 - Only Light

All along the street
They're holding signs that say
That I am lost
And that I do not know the way
I asked the rock
Sitting in a shade of grey
I asked the rock
He didn't have a thing to say

But you are the only light I see
You are the only light I need
When everybody else is sleeping
You come along and help me breathe

When I was a stone
No one knew that I was there
I'd sing my song and
No one ever really cared
I went to the mountain
Face all covered in tears
I wept but
Mountain didn't seem to hear

So you are the only light I see
You are the only light I need
When everybody else is sleeping
You come along and help me breathe

You are the only light I see [x2]

I love you
'Till the mountain starts to cry
I love you
If I don't know the reason why
I love you
Until I do not know my name
I ask you
Wouldn't you have done the same

Oh you are the only light I see
You are the only light I need
When everybody else is sleeping
You come along and help me breathe

You are the only light I see
You are the only light I need
When everybody else is sleeping
You bring the magic over me

You are the only light I see [x4]

09 - Call Me Home

Sometimes I feel like Karna
Has got over my skin
I put on my armour
Guarding me from outside in, but

At night I am woken by
Images of the flood oh oh
I'm living on the border
I'm living in the mud

You say there is no order
You say there is no cause
You say there is no reason to find
Happiness at all

Call me home
Is anybody out there at
Haul me home
Is anybody out there at all

Have we forgot our brothers
Have we forgot our kin
Have we forgot who loves us dearly
Have we forgot who'll sink or swim and

I went down to the water
Where my conscience flows oh oh
She told me to say Karna
We are and aren't alone

Call me home..

 
05 - All Hell

All hell's crashing down inside
The windows to the other side
Shimmering in rooms to quiet sighs of

'Oh well if it's happening there
It isn't here', and god appears to deal
A different hand to different tiers

But this play is not over yet
Hear the music of those marionettes
Beating drums down the quiet streets
Of ignorance and vain regrets

And all these fears swiftly come to pass
Presently she feels we're past
Cups of tea and optimistic prayers

Cos out there's our unholy mess
Gathering its long white dress
And marching down aisle to marry this

Matrimonial future bliss
Kiss the tide and hope it doesn't lift up your
Carpet woven from apathy and token frets
All Hell!

But this play is not over yet
Hear the music of those marionettes
Beating drums down the quiet streets
Of ignorance and vain regrets

10 - On My Way

Don't send me down the hole
Don't send me down the hole
Don't send me down the hole
Which way will it go go?

You never never know
You never never know
You never know the right way
Till you've been wrong, no

And if you want to shine
As your February clears
And would your March just dissappear?

You hear it on the left
You hear it on the left
You hear it on the left left left
And your right right

You're missing in the west
You're missing in the west
You're missing in the west
You follow the black kite

And even in your dreams
There are lights that can't be seen
And you're lost in where you've been

Well I'm on my way
To where I won't look back
I heard you say with dismay
That we're living on the tracks
I hear the train
Whoa oh oh oh oh oh oh
Whoa oh oh oh oh oh oh

You're living in a lie
You're living in a lie
You're living in a lie
Why do you deny?

We're swimming in the sky
We're swimming in the sky
We're swimming in the sky
So alone so high, high

And if you want to shine
As the sea looks to the stars
And well you're here but very far

And I'm on my way
To where I won't look back
I heard you say with dismay
That we're living on the tracks
I hear the train
Whoa oh oh oh oh oh oh
Whoa oh oh oh oh oh oh

As your February clears
would your March just dissappear?

Well I'm on my way
To where I won't look back
I heard you say with dismay
That we're living on the tracks
I hear the train
On my way
To where I won't look back
I heard you say with distain
That we're living on the tracks
I hear the train
Whoa oh oh oh oh oh oh
Whoa oh oh oh oh oh oh

And I'm on my way
On my way, whoa
And I'm on my way, whoa
And I hear the train
I hear the train, whoa
And I hear the train
We're on the tracks whoa

Whoa oh oh oh oh oh oh
