Nicolas RESSOT Bon, alors, j'ai une bonne et une mauvaise nouvelle : la mauvaise est que Tool n'a pas donné signe de vie depuis bien longtemps ; la bonne est qu'il y a des groupes comme DCF pour reprendre le flambeau...et autre bonne nouvelle, ils s'en inspirent beaucoup sans pour autant se livrer à l'imitation pure et dure. Sinon, quoi de neuf ? Favorite track: 08 Threnody.

Progmetalhero One of the most complete debuts in years. Very Toolish without being mere copycats, ... Favorite track: 06 The King and The Bishop.

Track Name: DEADLY CIRCUS FIRE - 01 Through the Soil: i.Born ii.Damned iii.Requiem
[Extending the passage of time
but this time we will not be saved]
Concious of such callousness
Aware of our own core chaos
Bearing our teeth as we reach
a new level of Gods
(I’m) Constantly telling myself that it’s
nothing getting myself into this
Chasing moments
We can find the time
The grinder is feeding the monkey
but now he is filled with the shame
Extending the passage of time
but this time we will not be saved
(I’m) Constantly fighting myself ‘cause it’s
something to make myself feel this. I’m-
Chasing moments
We Can’t find the time
My God please just keep us
Out of sight, out of mind
Feed the weak and hide the blind
(She’s still here. I breath in)
Tell the null, tell the sky
Preach her word, tell us why
(I need you)
Rise against the world that
set you with a soul
Dwell in darkness
we congress so flawlessly through the cold
You’re constantly begging me making me
Lifeless for the long way down
Chasing moments
We Can’t find the time
My God please just keep us
Out of sight, out of mind
Feed the weak and hide the blind
(She’s still here. I breath in)
Tell the null, tell the sky
Preach her word, tell us why
(I need you)
She dances with kings while he lays
through the soil he crawls
And she curses his name
like she spat on his face
like she stepped on his grave
Sometimes we crash and burn
little tin soldiers who can’t return
Selling mass murder with what we’ve learned
filling the holes with shovels that cannot turn
the earth
Earthquakes and pseudo-sextapes
Get inside the headaches as they try to escape
cremating satan watching re-runs roll on all the
ad breaks
Lady liberty cries as we whore her out
In the rain they say his soul remains
be ridden alone
and every now and then he’s seen below
There’s someone moving
fleeing light
the son who never shined
son without a shrine
THROUGH THE SOIL
I. BORN II. DAMNED III. REQUIEM

Track Name: 02 Her Epitaph: iv.The Return
Why do you pray
Born to put him in his place
erase the chance to feel at ease
You don’t deserve a moment
to focus on all the memories
With Heaven cent on devil’s dice
but no one needs to know
the dealer keeps on dealing
with a loaded pack, I’m feeling the squeeze
Just be. End of.
I feel the shallow rise
I think I hear your mother calling
telling you to quit your bawling
Crying. Flying into abyss
You’re a mistake with a kiss
This is lately
Bending ‘til it breaks me
Holding on
Yes, I’m holding on
Sit here and pray with me
Trying isn’t maybe
screaming like a baby
This is wrong
This is oh so wrong
Her waltz is not a false cry for attention
maybe I’ll mention this in her epitaph (x2)
Scaffold the old
mountains littered with spires (x2)
Til your knees go numb
Just remember
These four words and it is done
Forever
Christ is no more
Christ is no more
Pray with me (x4)
Sit here and pray with me
This is lately
Bending ‘til it breaks me
Holding on
Yes, I’m holding on
Trying isn’t maybe
screaming like a baby
This is wrong
This is oh so wrong

Track Name: 03 Nothing
A wife to be
Walks down the aisle
Adjust to see
That all the while
His face disgraced
but she takes it and she will
A man so kind
A damaged mind
They stop and stare
like he is blind
to see their hate
so he takes it and he will
Put it in a bag (x4)
You turn away
Until he’s done
You turn away
While he’s fucking
You turn away
Until it’s through
You turn away
While he’s fucking you
While he’s fucking you
You watch the news
A child abused
We all complain
Why is this world so sick
we do nothing
we do nothing
we just
Put it in a bag (x4)
You turn away
Until he’s done
You turn away
While he’s fucking
You turn away
Until it’s through
You turn away
While he’s fucking you
While he’s fucking you
While he’s fucking
Put it in a bag (repeated)
You turn away
Until he’s done
You turn away
While he’s fucking
You turn away
Until it’s through
You turn away
While he’s fucking you
While he’s fucking you
While he’s fucking
You

Track Name: 04 Blackout
If I don’t get outta here
I’m gonna bite my tongue
If I don’t get outta here
I’m gone cry
‘Cause your lips don’t speak the truth
only lies
these lies wont protect you
Is this how you get your kicks
‘Cause it makes me sick ‘til I’m blind
these lies wont protect you
If I don’t get outta here
I’m gonna bite my tongue
If I don’t get outta here
Then I’m done
Better off than me (x4)
Pretend your lights don’t blind the sky
Pretend you’re fine
It wont be missed
‘cause you’re better than this
and you bring me down
Pretend the sky don’t mind
If I don’t get outta here
You better bite your tongue
If I don’t get outta here
I’m gonna try
‘Cause your lips don’t speak the truth
only lies
these lies wont protect you
Is this how you get your kicks
‘Cause it makes me sick til I’m blind
these lies wont protect you
I feel so cold
I feel so cold here (x2)
Pretend your lights don’t blind the sky
Pretend you’re fine
It wont be missed
‘cause you’re better than this
and you bring me down
Pretend the sky don’t mind
Waste away your life
You want it, You want it
Waste away your life
You got it, You got it
Keep this all away from me
Just leave it alone and let it be
Waste away your life
You want it, You want it
Waste away your life
You got it, You got it
Keep this all away from me
Just leave this alone and let it be
I dont wanna see it
I dont wanna be it (x2)
no
Set this world ablaze
Like a firefly
Set this world ablaze my son
Black out the sun and the sky
Set this world ablaze
Like a firefly
Set this world ablaze my son
Black out the sun and the sky
Blackout the sun and the sky (x3)

Track Name: 06 The King and The Bishop
So I find a way to save my soul,
Until he finds another way in.
So I find a place to save us all,
I severe these ties.
I hide. Never.
Will he find the time to rise inside?
Will I keep the beast at bay?
Still it shakes me as I draw the line,
It’s just a matter of when I break.
Back in my head,
The demon screams inside again.
Back in my head,
What’s this you’re telling me?
Why can’t you leave it be?
They will play you like a puppet boy,
Try to fill you with the wires.
Let me out and I will help you, boy.
Remember these ties.
Find a place to hide,
Do you hear me?
Running out of time,
Leave me to ruin!
The city died in it’s sleep now it’s gone,
Pity that you wont see this is my beckon call.
Back in my head,
The demon screams inside again.
Back in my head,
What’s this you’re telling me?
Why can’t you leave it be?
Back in my head,
Back in my head,
Why don’t you let it be?
Release me!
I will find a way (repeated)
Is his heart not worth it’s weight in gold?
Will he ever know it’s worth it’s weight in -
Does it even matter? (repeated)
You wont take me alive,
You’ve got nowhere to hide.
Edges will fray,
No one will leave here alive.
Stray dogs cry,
Caught in the path of the headlights.
Pray!
Beg for the chance to survive.
Sickness and slaves,
All in the kingdom of flies.
Why wont you leave me alone?
‘Cause we’re bound by the seeds that they’ve
sewn.
Back in my head,
The demon screams inside again.
Back in my head,
What’s this you’re telling me?
Why can’t you leave it be?
Back in my head,
Back in my head,
Why don’t you let it be?
Why wont you leave me?
(whistles)

Track Name: 07 Black Mask
Strap me down
Flip the switch and fuck me
Do whatever you want
Cut me up
Bleed me dry and feed me
To your demon dogs
Hallelujah for condemnation
Tell me what you want to say and say it
Tell me what you need
A pigs head wearing a wig said
Let them all hang
Let them all swing in the trees
See ‘em swinging he says
See ‘em swinging he laughs
Put your baby in a black mask
Put your baby in a black mask
Build me up
Tear me down, deceive me
Bait me to the hook
Tell me all your lies
and I believe it
Raise me from the book
Hallelujah for condemnation
Tell me what you want to say and say it
Give me this disease
A pigs head wearing a wig said
Let them all hang
Let them all swing in the trees
See ‘em swinging he says
See ‘em swinging he laughs
Put your baby in a black mask
Put your baby in a black mask
I need you like a disease
I need you like a cancer
I need you like a rhetorical question
needs an answer
I need you like a disease
I need you like a cancer
I need you like a rhetorical question
needs an answer
Just give me an answer
[Latin] Pone tuum puerum in nigra persona (x3)
Put your baby in a
Put your baby in a mask of black
Put your baby in a
Put your baby in a black mask
Put your baby in a
Put your baby in a mask of black
Put your baby in a
Put your baby in a black mask
Black mask (x4)

Track Name: 08 Threnody
Sing me a song my dear,
Like a lullaby.
Sing me a song while I rest,
Don’t you cry.
Keep your head in the clouds,
Don’t look down,
Or you’ll fall on your face,
Lying in your on disgrace.
Keep your head
In the clouds! X3
Sweet dreams and farewell,
Keep your eyes closed.
Sweet dreams and farewell,
Time to let go.
(Sing me a song)
Sing you a song my dear,
Like you sang to me.
Sing you a song while you rest,
Threnody.
Keep your head
In the clouds! X3
Keep your head in the clouds,
Don’t look down,
Or you’ll fall on your face,
Lying in your on disgrace.
Keep your head
In the clouds! X3
Sweet dreams and farewell,
Keep your eyes closed.
Sweet dreams and farewell,
Time to let go.
Farwell, farewell,
Sweet dreams and farewell,
Keep your eyes closed.
Sweet dreams and farewell,
Time to let go.
(Sing me a song)
Sweet Dreams and Farewell x3

Track Name: 09 Leviathan
Believe and trust
crushed in intervals
her eyes are bitter
Before the fuss
lost in all of us
I feel much better
Believe and trust [x4]
And in the end
no silver line
you can’t pretend
betray your own mind
Right, passage
God walks away
Demand rapture
Vultures are coming to
pick all the meat from me
Between the lust
must’ve been mistrust
the lies are bigger
Poor man rusts
lies in ash and dust
he’s born to whither
Believe and trust [x3]
Believe and-
And in the end
no silver line
you can’t pretend
betray your own mind
Right, passage
God walks away
Demand rapture
Vultures are coming to
pick all the meat from me
You take away his smile
pick the meat from me
you pick the meat from me
You take away his smile
pick the meat from me
you pick the meat from me
Leviathan [x2]

Track Name: 10 The Light Within
The ship has run aground
it seems we’ve lost again
it’s cold, so dark
we call his name
To hold off the sharks
until we’re saved
I feel the warmth your white light
falls within my soul
Such a hopeless sight
It’s still my time
The sails uphold the sky
We swim for the shoreline
[for the shoreline]
The end seems endless
Yet we tell these stories
We’ll meet again
I Still feel your light in my hand
now it’s gone
You take all my words
and you read between the lines
You tell me how I think
and you tell me how I feel
I know what I want and
what I say
And I’ll say it anytime
and say it anyway
any day
And I will not stand for the world
that you take me through
And I will not whisper the words
that you tell me
I will not give you the chance to say it
And I will not tell you again
[I feel the warmth your white light falls within]
