Nicolas RESSOT Difficile de dire quel est mon morceau préféré sur cet LP ; chaque titre est un concentré de maîtrise et d'originalité. C'est dingue ! Opposite day réussi à chaque fois à monter la barre un peu plus haut. énorme ! Favorite track: Panda Formula.

Radar Face 03:06
She doesn’t mind the snow she can fly in silence with a radar face she has the science she’s a chick protector no empathy selected she’s a prey detector and you’ve been detected Hoo Hoo She will swallow whole She isn’t knowledgeable but she’s the perfect mother and a killing machine from inside the tree she feeds the babies she knows where you go she knows what you’re doing And now you know how things are going to go there’s more of you today than there will be tomorrow

it was supposed to kill mice, wasn’t supposed to be nice wasn’t supposed to chew bamboo what am I gonna do? I held in my hand the weight of the first adjustment couldn’t see straight had worked all night long chemicals crushed like dreams of coexistence I calculate great or so I thought Hold my breath and back away the formula is formulated Seal the room evacuate Panda formula is animated I’ve generated left in the lab to serve at the foot of the motherland I couldn’t think right and the powder had gone wrong it was supposed to kill mice, wasn’t supposed to be nice wasn’t supposed to chew bamboo what am I gonna do?

Noise Noise 03:55
I hear shouting within the murmering computer purring pencil clicks and windy wind squeeze water in a filter. give yourself a froth go forth and converse about Ray Kurzweil go ahead and laugh at your joke man Give me noise I can share it with the boys and the girls give me voice I can make it into memories if you please give me noise on your knees Give me noise noise I can make for the girls and the boys this old time rock and roll would soothe my soul if I had one pounding sounds prod us on grounding grounds liquid fizz plates collide. machines aren’t always motorized Tapping on the footsteps and closing doors I hear the beep over the ocean in my ear holes I see the people and their dog I touch it smell it taste the germs I sense the sound sometimes it’s not enough I hear whispering within the hollering electric rumble in the ground air and food beverages computer super crowded in your ear

rules are rude rudeness is the worst worse of course unless the rules are disturbed by thoughts and words I got the rude lifeforms surrounding politeness unroyal rightness being nice to break the rules I follow nothing so Im undefeated some rules are rude and that’s why i cheated The rig is gamed its the same if you’re big small rules ruin the biggest politenesses reading the justice’s rulings is grueling they are fooling benevolent citizens are tought to follow the rules because they don’t know it’s rude. (they don’t know it’s rude) I been refused unglued and confused about food the laws of chewing are relaxed and I rolled back the laws I once followed I swallowed the rules I eschewed

Sunrise chicken highs factory criticize make yourself a guest of the food that the fruit is So many people in the neighborhood feeling good make a money take a money if you think you should would you like the wood and the leaves of the trees it’s easy. backing into freeze of the winter loser proves that the winning boss lost for the last time I’m Going around the rock every day making tornadoes and hurricanes Planetary gravity antifreeze geysers emanate chemicals squirting out spectacles glasses masses gases passes through the aphelion with Guangdong song of the sometimes warm and the sometimes cold With the goldilocks keys of venus. whatever you mean is genius. The past and lends to the future time I’m

Civilization a lazy mistake it’s time to debate. it’s time to remake I’m going to miss it but destroy erase andimprove is what you gotta do Hope I don’t sound bleak. Hang around and speak with me Do over utopia. make it better. I care a lot so lets clean the slate and drain the lake gather the population enter the veil of ignorance decide what happens to everyone without knowing who you’ll be

Ready for preparation do you care about it Launch is survivable but the bow shock is unknown Take the front seat my dear I’ll take suspension and maps When the one police is too inefficient to stop us I’m your crew, I’m your friend I’m the start and I’m the end Crossing the desert because it was in our path We ate the food we drank the air. We consumed everything we packed It’s alright It’s OK. All of our mission is underway He’s got a mind of his own. Alcohol nebula we’re on a cruise now and we have a fistula

cleanliness security safety in your face its the place to be yourself unless yourself is a waste energizer candlelight. outside air cannot get in here we’re the dear people who can make your suffering disappear stick it all with a glue stick stick it with a glue stick it stick it with a post it. if you’re capable, staple it. careful with the hammer and nails. If you do it wrong it’s gonna hurt Make yourself more useful make less mess and disinfect detect distress. Protect your dress help people have the big success they will say yes when you ask them if they like you you want to be liked. you want to belong you ought to be nice. You can’t go wrong write this down, write this down don’t bite their elbows relax by the windows eat the food they give to you practice your murder on ribbons and lasers
