about

Slim Wild Boar Rennes

" Un folk blues ténébreux parsemé d’éclats western et rockabilly, qui revendique un son roots et défend sa dimension artisanale et bricolo. Des morceaux qui pourraient être issus du fin fond des Etats-Unis et joués par des allumés qui entretiendraient une tradition ancestrale à grand renfort de voix écorchée, guitares lumineuses et balades crépusculaires " Rock&Folk ... more

Track Name: Goldminers
We are gold miners working in the dark
While others rush in the sun
We never breathe the air caus' we're underground
And that's where we all belong

If it's sounds like iron
It's the noise of our picks
Hitting your dead cold hearts
We never see the light caus' we're underground
And that's where we all belong

Dust covering our tired faces
We are coughing out blood
Hot, black dust covering our tired faces
We are coughing out blood

But our hands are shining
From the gold we found
So we keep on marching in
And our eyes are sparkling
From the gold we found
So we may die digging here
Track Name: Perfect Dead Body
Eyes on the road
Hands in red blood
Cops in the rear view mirror
This highway has no end
I wanna know
Where did it all go wrong

He's digging a hole
To burry my body
A body that hurt me so much he said
This highway has no end
I wanna know
Where did it all go wrong

And a perfect dead body
On the passenger seat
Make up sliding slowly
Makes her face look sweet

And this perfect dead body will never hurt me nomore
Track Name: A Dead Heart Never Beats
Can a shadow still be loved
Can a memory still be kissed
Living eyes can't stop crying
But a dead heart never beats

I'm here my love,
Right here my love
I'm here but you don't see me my love

Everynight I sit
By the fire place
Waiting for the flames to die

Shadows are dancing on the walls
Like we used to do
Everynight in that room on the music
We would turn till we fall

I'm cold my love
So cold my love
You're missing to my life my love

Every night you stare
At the fire place
You don‘t see I'm standing there

Shadows are dancing on the walls
Like we used to do
Everynight in that room on the music
We would turn till we fall

Can a shadow still be loved ?
Can a memory still be kissed ?
Living eyes can't stop crying
But a dead heart never beats

First time we kissed
We both swore
That we'd never part
We didn't know
That death could break our hearts
Track Name: In That Car
Back from the start
That's where you wanna go
With a brand new heart
And an innocent soul
Behind you the city's getting smaller and smaller
And the lines on the road are swallowed faster and faster

You can drive as far as you can
You'll still be in that car
With yourself, your dirty past and no lucky star

The road is straight
But your life is winding
It's damn too late
Now The pain is growing
Back from the start
That's where you wanna go
With a brand new heart
And an innocent soul

You can drive as fast as you can
You'll still be in that car
With yourself, your dirty past and no lucky star
Track Name: Black Flag Outlaw
I'm outlaw they say, I'm outlaw they say
But who has made the law ?
A law made to protect the kings and the riches
Is not a law for me

I'm violent they say, I'm violent they say
But who said it was peace ?
Their peace is a war
And my fight is for justice
So tell me who is violent
Track Name: By My Side
Sirens are screaming in the distance
On the road I take evereyday
From the factory I work in to the poor outskirts
Where I live by your side

My girl we needed a new life
With a gun I went to the bank
I'm back without money and blood on my hands
And this blood is not mine

Hold me Hold Me Hold me tight
Hold my guilty hands
Only you made life worth living
Stay that last hour by my side

From that factory where I spent my young years
To the jail where I'll spend the next
My life could have been a total waste
But you were by my side

Hold me, Hold Me, Hold me tight
Hold my guilty hands
Only you made life worth living
Stay that last hour by my side
Track Name: Chasing Lies
We walk by the old railroad track
High hopes, breaking our backs
Our sweat is pouring
In our eyes so we can't see at all

None of us know how many miles we walked
We d'ont know how many are left
We can’t see the end
We are even to tired to scream


That land ?
Where is that promised land ?
What are we walking for ?
Are we chasing lies ?
Many tears have been shed
So many of us are now dead
The horizon's even further than 10 years ago

Our faith has been lost a long time ago
But we keep on walking in row
Pretending to dream
Of that promised land we'll never reach

That land ?
Where is that promised land ?
What are we walking for ?
Are we chasing lies ?
Many tears have been shed
So many of us are now dead
The horizon's even further than 10 years ago
Track Name: Junkyard
The Junkyard I live in
Is my dusty realm
Car wrecks around me
I'm talking to wind

That sheet metal kingdom
Only haunted by dogs
You shouldn't come here
Unless you need some drugs

Nothing's alive here
Everything's wrecked
Nothing is worth more here
Than the money I make

It is not safe here
But nowhere really is
Everything's wrecked here
Like your life surely is

That sheet metal kingdom
Only haunted by dogs
You shouldn't come here
Unless you need some drugs
Track Name: Wherever
I don't know where I was born
Don’t care where I’m gonna die
I'm on the run
Movement is my future
I have no home

I don’t know who are my friends
I'm ramblin' on my lonelyness
I had to go
People make me feel
I’ll never be one of them

Wherever I bring my lonesome blues
Is my lonesome home
Wherever a tear can touch the ground
Is where a new life starts

„Ride on, ride on, ride on
Ride on to a better place“
People feel great
When they see my back
Receding on the track

I don't know where I was born
Don’t care where I’m gonna die
I'm on the run
Movement is my future
I have no home
Track Name: Kill Me Twice
We met in the mist
Of an alcoholized kiss
We walk from that day
In a restless bliss
Your words sometimes bite
But our feelings never blights
A tender fight
Is better than cheating kiss

If you kiss me then kiss me twice
It’s never enough when it comes to touching you babe
If you leave me then you'll kill me twice
There are two hearts in my chest
Beating just for you

From that blur night
A dream is in sight
Open your eyes
We are gone
We will break all clocks,
And compasses then we'll walk
An unknow goal is safer that a boring life
