Fear is the enemy

MZTN 2010年前後、ネオクラストシーンにおいて当時シーンを牽引していたと言って過言ではないAlpinistと同レベルのバンドが遂に登場したと思ったのがこのフランスのGeranium。そんな彼らの新作レコードが到着。サウンドはデビュー当初からカッコよかったけれど活動10年目を迎えて今尚更新され続けているのが素晴らしいし、もはやネオクラスト文脈だけでは説明のつかない領域に達している。作品テーマもより深く、そして現在世界で進行している問題と対峙する問題提起がなされているし、ポリコレ過剰になっている流れに対しても彼らなりに別の答えを見出そうとしているようにも見える。 Favorite track: Debout les damnés de la terre.

Happy few 04:20
your wealth our daily labour your politics our daily lives your laws our pain enslaved by a system where justice is strong for the weak and weak for the strong where those who have will always have more where those who don't will always be held responsible on top of the pyramid blinded by power corrupt by greed but with blood and tears on your hands and a stone in your chest
you call yourself a friend with your hasty judgments and your behind the back bad-talk please stop pretending to do good when everything you've ever done is feed your ego with confessions from those who thought they could trust you and then chatter with your courtesan make your so called friends feel like they deserve to be ignored is the only thing you can do right start coming down from you pedestal before giving everyone lessons start cleaning your own mess before condemning others you passive-aggressive, self-centered fuck I don't want your rotten friendship
never feel overwhelmed by a foreign look what will you think if i do things that way if i do think this way why are your actions dictated by the appearences dictatorship i wanna be the way i want i wanna act the way i feel dont wanna think about how it will influence your judgment how it will impact our relationship human relations as my true-selfs prison me, locked up in a sham me
Interlude 04:34
one backs down another rises up just as spoilt just as rotten hammer its head another will pop up then the same again unstoppable like an endless whac-a-mole condemned but never guilty reproachable but never worry unrighteous puppets lying ostensibly with no justice calling them phony
those who suffered too long those who have been trampled on those whose voices has never been heard those who will never hear thank you those whose pain is considered nothing those who are frustrated by disparities those for whom justice is way too strong those judged too fast by ignorants those left apart because of their so-called differences wake up, rise and be proud you're more than enough to punch some sense into this worlds big fat ugly leaders
what are you without your friends ? where would you be without friendship ? only thing which lasts only thing which counts submerged by what you didn't choose overwhelmed with no control someone you can lean on life is worth living through them life is worth feelling with them with nobody else it always has been and will always be us versus the world
it cripples you when you wake up twists your guts when you go out makes your head turn when you think you chew, you swallow, you puke fear is the ghost flying above you fear is the mind wandering in the unknow fear is powerful enough to scare the living daylights out of anyone who yields to it no one can help you until they experience what it truly and deeply means to be terrified of feeling it again
what truth is there to claim to those who are nothing else that a personified forgery and a widespread lie their justice which day after day insults the condemed those who were never given the benefit of the doubt enjoyed by IMF director or a former president beyond those barriers imposed by states power ideas flow, boil and will never forget the lies of the crooked and opportunistic politicans
