* - I haven’t been honest with you, I’m sorry. - What’s going on ? - I’ve been having these dreams. I guess they’re more like nightmares. They always start with a kind of storm. - What was the dream, tonight ? - There’s always this dark, thick rain, like fresh motor oil, and then the things, people, it just makes them crazy. They attack me. Sometimes… It’s hard to explain, because it’s not just a dream.. it’s a feeling. I’m afraid something might be coming. Something that’s not right. I cannot describe it, I just need you to believe me. - You think I’m crazy ? Is that what he told you ? Well, listen up ! There is a storm coming ! Like nothing you have ever seen ! And not a one of you is prepared for it ! - Sleep well in your beds, because if this thing comes true, there ain’t gonna be anymore Take shelter (2011) written by Jeff Nichols

The cockroaches under my skin Have all climbed into my brain Shepherd, lead them unto my creed Whispering songs full of dreads Don't you ever crawl under my skin I'm mad when you visit me Cold bat, with your psalmodies of hate Black day that weighs on my head Seething, I can't control my shakes I watch the crowd around me I let them talk Let them cry I let them crawl Let them die Let them pay For their crime Of being CHORUS : Increase ferocity And release the fury The battle deep inside that you can't contain There's no morality No creed and no light In a world that you will never understand Sometimes I watch under my skin Hoping that I'll find no flesh Pure mind disturbed I have the skill To grasp the duality Drop of mercy that drips on my neck It has evaporated Anger inside has prepared the stake And condemned lucidity Brother, they tell me you're my brother But you're an actor to me I let you talk Let you cry I let you crawl Let you die Let you pay For your crime Of being CHORUS A drop of mercy That drips Along my neck Let me talk Let me cry You let me crawl You'll let me die I pay For my crime Distorted judgment I feel like I'm blind My eyes are bleeding Were they so tired to see ? Roaming in my head Incompatible with you And myself Out of humanity A drop A drop of mercy That drips Along my neck

The Collapse 08:10
CHORUS : My life is in a bottle Bottle deep in my head My head screams at my body Body which feels the pain (Mind) goes away My world's stuck in this ego Ego which splits and dies Another part of my face Faces that share the same lies (Mind) goes away – it goes away Wounded by cold When it burns Rage and ice inside me I scald myself In a tub Feelings kill my body I don’t know why this takes place But I think it’s time for the Collapse Cradles look like A small grave See the reaper in child School's improving The death rate Vision of a sick mind I can’t recognize my face But I think it’s time for the Collapse CHORUS Buildings look like Unreal cells Street, a cage that traps me Conditionned by Piercing bells Those guys won't set me free I can’t prove if it’s my fate But I know I’ll die for the Collapse Amid the crowd That I cross Can't stare anybody Electric chair Where I sit I'm sure won't work for me I don’t know if it’s too late But I’m sure I’ll die for the Collapse Wake me up and Leave my mind (Shut up) All you hear is a lie Stand up and Leave my soul (Fuck off) All you feel is a lie Wake me up Don't bring me down (Shut up) All your life is a lie Stand up and Let me see (Fuck off) All you see is a lie I don’t know if it’s my fate But I know it’s time for the Collapse Wounded by cold When it burns Rage and ice inside me I scald myself In a tub Feelings kill my body I can’t prove if it’s my fate But I’m sure I’ll die in the Collapse I can't stand alone with this I don't understand this feeling My head's gonna blow with me My body separates I can't stand alone with this I don't understand this feeling My head's gonna blow with me My body’s collapsing with you I should see People like me Locked inside Their poor body Why are you All white dressed and Try to heal My limitless wound ?

I often watched your face (I often watched your face) And often beheld your grace (Now you're gone) And your memory just stabs me (Crimson rose) Withered and gave her death My systemic hell Is your own hell (But I can't forgive) All I remember Burst of pictures all around Memories of you cause flash in my head My dreams are full of violence Deep inside Crimson silence I can't no longer contain hell You grab – tear apart You possess my soul CHORUS : Venom made with blind anger Flows inside my veins And I start to see all in red Desire of punishment The more you try escape The more I wanna hunt you Hide in hell my baby Cause even there I'll find you I lost myself When she killed herself You brought me In a systemic hell When you took Your own life I cried over your body With crimson tears My rage seemed limitless (A melt of love and hate that blows me up) Your face in captivity Is burning my brain Thoughts like a systemic hell Raise bars in my head Coward bitch you exited this world Coward bitch you left me alone If you had to die twice It would be my own hand CHORUS I lost myself When she killed herself No rest for me now Feel like my soul Is decomposing In drops of blood Involuntary I remember the time we passed Together - digging up Your unbearable corpse Crown of flowers That I put on your grave Is now a bunch of dust Crimson rose as you were Coward bitch you exited this world Coward bitch you left me alone If you had to die twice It would by my own hand Dig up. I'll exhume. Your body caus' I have to see you. Dig up. I'll exhume. Your body caus' I have to kill you. You left me alone Dig up – I’ll exhume your body

Staring at guilty ghosts That walked by my side I didn't notice how long We had walked together Like one man we traveled Through those empty places You were part of me My faults My doomed sisters CHORUS : And you were You were a part of me My faults, my doomed sisters And you dig You dig inside of me My curse, my soul keepers Every fault has been buried Cause finally time will forgive Sleeping in the bed of this Permanent voluptuous hate I didn't realise how often We had dreamed together Useful pain you inflicted And repentance you suggested You were part of me My sins My sad brothers CHORUS Every fault has been buried And you will bury me Looking back on my deep misery That black pit And time will forgive me That's oblivion’s law Every clock is full of mercy And I fall Time

Nabla² 06:11
Many years passed And I’ve learned That you can't trust Humans are the disgrace of God And soil this whole world Now it's time to delete This useless form of life And recreate a pure Origination Tell me I am insane But I have to find CHORUS : Watch my face And this place I spend my hours alone Killing time is not a problem For me On my board Ends this world Figures that sit on a throne Equations are The answer For Redemption Arithmetic Could it be The solution ? Mathematics I found a new Way of Annihilation Of Lord's abortion Annihilation Of Lord's abortion Analysis Could be The Absolution ? Bloody matrix I found a new Way of Annihilation Of Lord's abortion Annihilation Of Lord's abortion Annihilation of world I write on board pouring unknowns X equal Birth, Y equal Death Integrals rise like gallows pole Abstract spaces against evil CHORUS Down. Down. I shut myself away in my own head Down. Down. I can't understand why I stand there In this flimsy unordered Mental space Strewn with stains of death Mental spaces Strewn with stains of death Asphixiated I wait for my bloody God I wait for my bloody God

RISE He's chained in a dark cell - RISE Enslaved by the enemy - KNEEL Betrayal and felony - KILL Allied for the attack - DIE The King cannot fight back - RISE The shield is broken Cause I've fought in so many wars How can I win if I've been forsaken Judas knife you nail On the field is like a plague Come to snatch my guts If you want to steal my crown Give me Your best shot And bring this bleeding highness down Don’t you know that traitors enhance my toughness CHORUS : They sing no song for the hated heroes Misleading them all To an early fall That's where he goes The dead king will rise He'll rise again From the depths of the skies And again he will reign Stabbed and wounded The king crawled for shelter They sing no song for the hated heroes Misleading them all For a last amend RISE Alone in the castle - RISE Doomsday and agony - KNEEL That caused your perjury - KILL Decline as a cold queen - DIE The king is now bending - RISE The empire I built Is besieged - I clench my fist How long will last the downfall of Heaven ? Every plot you soil Vulture. Raven. Come to cut my throat If you want to rape my home Give me Your best shot And bring this bleeding highness down Don’t you know that traitors enhance my toughness CHORUS Decline of his pride Blackness of this antic crime He shall return From the death path Stories never end Our oath of allegiance Our kingdom Is full of disgrace Is full of disgrace Is full of disgrace CHORUS Our dead king will rise

One second of lucidity Among the depths Of space and time A spark of divine wisdom In my reptilian brain Leading my mind to its own Devastation Events I can't undo Randomness is surrounding my days Leading my world to its own Destruction Flood All the countries Burn Every damned trees Crush The world's cities And spread This mad disease CHORUS : This stupid man suit I'm not Aware of may it be Just a pleasant nightmare Don't know if God just hates us We’re devoted to roam Behind your mask you can't moan Till your death you will live In a pleasant nightmare Don't know if I just hate us You’re devoted to crawl Madness will be at my side You lie, you lie, you lie This lethal prophecy Flowing in my veins Cannot spread out It's my legacy of pain Again a chance To live another day Again a chance To live another day CHORUS Inside I wake up my mind No one, no one, no one to enslave You're crawling for a Single answer I'm not the one Who pulls the trigger It takes what it takes To dig another man's grave It takes what it takes To dig another man's grave CHORUS Wake me From my pleasant nightmare I Just Need to be awaken It's just a pleasant nightmare Wake me up Behind your mask there is no face Serial number marked on your skin You empty shell that roams in space You'll tie this noose till ends the dream

* Life's but a walking shadow A poor player that struts And frets his hour upon the stage And then is heard no more It is a tale, told by an idiot Full of sound and fury Signifying nothing --- Macbecth (Act 5, Scene 5) played by Patrick Stewart * This is what I mean when I'm talking about time and death and futility. But right there in the last instant it's an unmistakable relief. See, 'cause they where afraid and now they saw for the very first time... How easy it was to just let go. All your life, all your love, all your hate, all your memories, all your pain, it was all the same thing. It was all the same dream. A dream that you had inside a locked room. ---True Detective - the locked room (2014) written by Nic Pizzolatto

Dreams are burning Those eyes have seen A lonely place to live And this idea Of watch things die Slowly brings me down I can hear Wolves inside my head Sleeping ? Or time is coming I can see Wolves rallying themselves Dreaming ? Or time is running out Drowning my bleeding soul To this place where I don't feel any pain I drag this body down Alone (With wolves) Gloom is filling my mind With its ghoulish ideas Inside the burden weighs down Faults I can't pay off Gloom is filing my mind I hear the howlings Inside the burden weighs down Mind I can't rid of Got lost among the wolfpack Of ghoulish ideas I can't redeem myself Sinister mental state I feel the fangs in my back That tear my skin My pitiless wardens Wall me up in my head CHORUS : How I know If I'm all alone All alone In wolves' shelter Clenched and low In this jail of bones Jail of bones I won't crawl further Darkness grows Since I'm all alone All alone In wolves' shelter What I sow It will never grow Never grow With guilt as water Wild pack deadens my brain As a painful phobia Feel like I turn into them Sort of lycanthropia Strange thoughts wrap themselves up In a cold mist Trapped in deadly cycle I clench my fist Got lost among the wolfpack Of ghoulish ideas I can't redeem myself Sinister mental state I feel the fangs in my back That tear my skin My pitiless wardens Wall me up in my head CHORUS Wolves are my only mates And my only clan Remorse only thing I create

about

Synesthesia plays a tempered alternative metal in drop-D tuning with inspirations going from the rock/post-rock side to the heaviest side of metal. The band also originally includes bluesy, gipsy or symphonic melodies within their musical spectrum.
Worst Case Scenario is the achievement of this hybrid - however simple and efficient - kind of metal.
These album recurrent themes are bipolarity, madness, will or time. Some songs even tell short stories, potential scenarios happening on this theater of shadows that we call Humanity.
