about

Qwartz Album Award -Qwartz Electronic Music Awards 2011-
qwartz.fr/category/laureats-des-qwartz-7/
Enhanced and remastered version
With support from SACD

"Once manufactured, 'Army Of Dolls' finds the dolls march out of the toymakers' lab like Kraftwerk's show-room dummies - angular, jerky and focussed on something vaguely malevolent. In spite of consisting of little more than overlapping voices, a bassline and a steady beat, this sounds dirty and vaguely glam, like Iggy's 'Nightclubbing' for possessed Barbie dolls"

Track Name: Army Of Dolls
we are an army of lovely dolls
we’re not happy about the way films end
we are an army of lovely dolls
we’re not happy about the way loves end
you have no mercy for our request
we go to battle, appeal to arms
we have no mercy for “temper” boys
you’d better find a hidden place to shelter

take cover

we strive
we drop
we box
but we all crave you
we still love you

as the same words keep re-echoing , re-echoing, over and over
re-echoing, re-echoing over and over

take cover

we are an army of lovely dolls
we are a unit of comic dolls
we are an army of lovely dolls
we are a unit of scary dolls

take cover

we strive
we drop
we box
but we all crave you
we still love you
but we all crave you
we still love you

you gonna make me cry, you gonna make me cry, you gonna make me cry

Track Name: Crackle 2
je suis toute déglinguée
il faut me revisser
doucement
doucement doucement

et ne plus me briser
doucement
il n’y a que lui que lui que lui en moi enfoui
que lui en moi enfoui

ne pas se laisser surprendre
ne pas s’y laisser reprendre
doucement

en moi enfoui, que lui en moi enfoui

j’ai mis beaucoup de temps à m’extraire de moi même
Track Name: Mes Taches De Rousseur
je ne m’appartiens pas ou presque plus
le corps froissé la bouche repulpée
je chante pour quelques inconnus
jusqu’au bout jusqu’au bout jusqu’au bout de la nuit

de la nuit

il me faudra de la chance

une épaule où poser ma tête
la bouche repulpée
le coeur rouillé
le jouet est cassé

mes épaules sont la plus jolie partie de mon corps

il me faudra de la chance , elle le sait

de la chance

mes taches de rousseur sont autant de petites marques de douleur de douleur
mes taches de rousseur
de douleur de douleur
Track Name: I Wish I Could
I’m gently removing my make up
I can not be bothered undressing
I’m gently removing my make up
I can not be bothered unzipping

I wish I could lean on to somebody

I’m gently releasing my fury
you keep rehearsing the same story
I’m gently releasing my fury
you keep rehearsing the same story

I wish I could lean on to somebody
I wish I could lean on to somebody

I’m gently removing my make up
I can not be bothered undressing
can not make a stand against it
can not make my mind up about it

I wish I could lean on to somebody
I can not make my mind
I wish I could lean on to somebody
I can not make my mind
I
I
on to somebody
Track Name: Revert
eating an apricot
a crackle quirky crackle
a failure in our wonderland

I have to revert find a recess

emotions have to be recalled
as my steps can no longer fall, no longer fall

emotions have to be recalled as my steps can no longer fall, no longer fall

scattered thoughts
waiting for the fear to fall

I have to revert, find a recess

effusions have to be recalled
as my steps can no longer fall, no longer fall

recalled

swinging
dancing
smiling
eating
loving
thinking
being
just being
Track Name: O No More
My dear friends I say good bye
I say good night to all of you
I’m exhausted
no more torments
no more restraints
no more

no more let it go no more

My dear friends I say good bye
I say good night to all of you
I surrender
I will release
I’ll drive away
I will do anything

no more
no more
I’m off

I’ve said goodbye
I’ve said good night
no more no more pain

I’ve said goodbye
I’ve said good night
no more no more pain

no more no more no more
no more let it go no more
no more
I’m off
