Inspired among other things by the work of Jack Kerouac and the introspective wanderings of my own life, Introspection alternates instrumental dreamy passages, sometimes dark and melancholic, with soft, enchanting vocals melody. This first intimistic album transports you in different horizons, where your mind and memories are at source of the musical interpretation.

My first auto-product album, that I composed between 2009 and 2011, released with the french label "Musea".


released September 26, 2011

Music and lyrics written by Maxime Defrancq.

Track Name: My mind out of reach
Feel so high
I try to fly
Is this really hallucination ?
Am I really loosing perception ?

White rabbit I follow
I know my body' s going to answer the glow
My soul will leave the matter

Feel my mind out of reach
Set free from my body left behind
Feel my mind out of reach
Set free from my body left behind

Hello dear cocaine
Don't you fool me
I'm right there you can
Come inside me
Because of you
I'm in confusion
Won't you stop
This fucking illusion!

Feel my mind out of reach
Set free from my body left behind
Feel my mind out of reach
Set free from my body left behind

I don't know what's wrong with me
The rabbit makes me crazy
Don't pay attention to this
You just had an awesome bad trip

It's unreal
It's unreal
It's unreal
It's fucking real !
Track Name: The ink of my tears
All the memories we have lost
and the sorrow that it costs
Tonight i can't sleep
thinking of what we might have been

I remember your soft skin
and the smell of your hair
It will never feel, never feel this way again

So i wrote you a letter
with the ink of my tears
I sang you a song
we would have been forever

But tonight it's all gone
I don't know how,
I don't know to live without you
Track Name: Again & again...
I look at the sea and I think it's beautiful
No clouds in the horizon, I feel free but I'm full
Of pain and sorrow when these pictures come back
Now i'm low
There's no way to escape it

So let's try to be happy with friends Drug Alcohol
But you know you're still there in reality!

Then you're crying aloud and They start to smile...

There will be a reason
There will be a reason
Give me a reason
To forget again and again!

Insignificant handshakes
And the smile on your face
Hypocritically hiding disgust and weakness
Superficiality, Mediocrity, Egoism
Don't you realize you're so fucking
Lost in illusion!
Track Name: Empty Bottles
Help me, I feel so down
The bottle's empty
I drank all night
your photo's still here
It hurts inside
Thinking about
What i should have said

And everyday i wonder
How can't i remember
The day you left me out

All Alone in my bed
I still feel the pain
Why don't you?

I still try to reach you
But i know everything has changed...
