about

A concept, experimental hybrid techno/blues album filled with computer and program generated noises, intermixed with acoustic instruments and electric guitars, with a dash of twisted vocals and deliciously insane lyrics... A journey into a place without reason...

about

Francis Voignier San Francisco, California

I started my first band in 1967 and never looked back. I moved from Eastern France to Paris and then London where I made my professional debut. I worked in NYC
as a sideman between 78 and 82 before heading for SF where I did 10 years in the trenches with more bands than I can remember. I now live in Arcata, California.

Track Name: Doubt
DOUBT

STAY WITH ME
OH PLEASE STAY WITH ME MY LOVE
DON’T GO AWAY
NO DON’T GO AWAY SWEET FRIEND

WHEN YOU’VE REACHED
BEYOND THE FENCE
WILL YOU LET ME KNOW IF THE GRASS IS RED
MY FRIEND
AND WHEN YOU’VE SEEN
IT ALL AGAIN
WILL YOU DARE TO COME OVER HERE NEXT TO ME
MY FRIEND
RIGHT OVER HERE
RIGHT OVER THERE

STAY WITH ME
OH PLEASE STAY WITH ME MY LOVE
DON’T GO AWAY
NO DON’T GO AWAY SWEET FRIEND

AFTER YOU SPIT
IN THE FACE OF WAR
KILL THE DRAGON IN THE DEN
WITH YOUR PAPER SWORD
DEAR FRIEND
WILL YOU BE BACK
ON THE CIRCUIT
TAKE IT TO THE OPEN ROAD
HAVE THEM SCREAM FOR MORE
MY LOVE

DON’T GO AWAY
NO DON’T GO AWAY MY FRIEND

FAR FROM ANYWHERE, LOST IN A PLACE HOSTILE TO MOST
THE DOORS THAT WERE OPEN ARE NOW CONCELED WITHIN THE WALLS
THE ONE AND LEADING HAND HAS NOW TURNED COLD
AND HARD AS STEEL
THE PATH HAD ONCE A PURPOSE BUT NOW IT SNAKES OUT OF REACH

DILEMMA
ETERNAL DILEMMA
DILEMMA
ETERNAL DILEMMA

WRONG RIGHT LEFT UP DOWN GOOD AND BAD
WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE WHEN YOU’RE DOWN
ON EITHER SIDE THE QUESTION’S LAID
THE PENDULUM FOREVER SWAYS
DILEMMA
GOT A FOOT IN HEAVEN
A FOOT IN HELL
IF YOU THINK THERE IS AN EASY WAY
OUT
BYE, BYE
BYE, BYE

DILEMMA

Track Name: The Dream
THE DREAM




WOULDN’T IT HELP THE SITUATION
IF ONE OF US DROPPED THE WEAPONS
TO TAKE THE TIME TO BRING THIS THING AROUND
BUT TRY TO THINK THROUGH THE THUNDER
WHEN LIGHTNING STRIKES LOGIC SURRENDERS
TO THE BEAT WITHIN THE MIND
WOULDN’T IT FEEL GOOD TO BE FREE
WOULDN’T IT FEEL JUST LIKE A DREAM

ON THE SMOOTH WATERS OF THIS OCEAN
RISES A LAND IN THE DISTANCE
OF REACHES UNKNOWN TO US ALL
THROUGH THE HAZE OF DOUBT AND TERROR
ONE MUST RISE TO THE RIGORS
OF SETTING ONE’S FOOT ON NEW GROUNDS
BUT DOESN’T IT FEEL GOOD TO BE FREE
EVEN IF FEAR SOURS THE DREAM

THINGS GET LOST IN TRANSLATION
IT’S BREATHING ROOM FOR DISTORTION
IT DOESN’T MEAN IT WASN’T HERE AT ALL
WHAT YOU’VE SEEN EXISTS FOREVER
INSIDE YOU HEAD OUTSIDE OF MATTER
IT DOESN’T MEAN YOU’RE JUST WILD AND GONE
WOULDN’T IT FEEL RIGHT TO BE FREE
WOULDN’T IT FEEL JUST LIKE A DREAM

Track Name: Resident Power
RESIDENT POWER

HAVEN’T WE BEEN IN THIS PLACE BEFORE
RIDERS AMID THE SPIRITS OF THESE SHORES
NEITHER STILL NOR LIVE
NEITHER MIND NOR FLESH
IT IS PICTURE PERFECT
BUT IT MUST BE LEFT BEHIND
AS BARELY A FIGMENT ON YOUR MIND
MERELY A BLUR ON THE SPECTRUM OF TIME
OR NOT…

LEAVE EVERY STONE IN ITS PROPER SPACE
UNTIL YOU FIND THE COURAGE TO COME FACE TO FACE
WITH THE UNBRIDLED POWERS THAT RESIDE WITHIN
TO MEET THE INSTIGATOR
BEHIND THIS UNRAVELING PARADE
WILL YOU JOIN THE MASQUERADE
WILL YOU SHED THE GUISE
RISE TO ASSESS
EVALUATE
THIS MESS

NEITHER STILL NOR LIVE
NEITHER MIND NOR FLESH
IT IS PICTURE PERFECT
BUT IT MUST BE LEFT BEHIND

WILL YOU JOIN THE MASQUERADE
OR WILL YOU SHED THE GUISE
RISE TO ASSESS
EVALUATE
THIS MESS
