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.

*
- 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
Track Name: Drop of Mercy
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
Track Name: The Collapse
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 ?
Track Name: Dedication
God that I defy
Can't just overcome my will
You can't deny
I am the one who wins
Son awake your pride
No right for you to kneel down
Be on my side
Toughness the only me

God that I defy
He can't just overcome my will

This toil
Is a delight
No gain
If you don't fight
The pain
Can't reach your mind
I am
The Dedication

CHORUS :
Day by day you will own
Your world my son
Your world my son
Defy the lord - do not moan
Carry your stone
Carry your stone
Dedication is the only me
Everything is just a matter of will
A matter of will
A matter of will
A matter of – matter of
Will inside never goes
Carry your stone
Carry your stone

Rough I'm never tired
There's no weakness for strong mind
No parasite
Sleep when you're dead you will
Breathe the Spartan sigh
Convictions lead you to death
But you still smile
You're not the king if you're not

Rough I'm never tired
There is no weakness for strong mind

This toil
Is a delight
No gain
If you don't fight
The pain
Can't reach your mind
I am
The Dedication

CHORUS

Dedication is the only me
Everything is just a matter of will

My
Dedication
Track Name: Systemic Hell
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
Track Name: Time will forgive
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
Track Name: Nabla²
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
Track Name: Dead King, Rise
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
Track Name: A Pleasant Nightmare
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
Track Name: 28 Days
*
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
Track Name: Wolve's Shelter
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
