about

“El que halla su vida, la perderá…”. Con esta idea inagotable de fondo recibimos el nuevo EP de My Dear Flotsam. Desde la composición de este trabajo, un vivo campo de batalla personal, ideológico y emocional, hasta su sonido lleno de texturas y exploración interior, asistimos al crecimiento de la vida en los ámbitos más extremos del espíritu humano. Inner Wars admite y contiene, porque no hay por qué ocultarlos, las heridas, miedos y contradicciones a las que cualquier artista se enfrenta con cada paso en su carrera y búsqueda de una propia voz. Pero también, siguiendo la frase universal de Jesús de Nazaret, está presente una verdad que esta banda ha experimentado (dejando de lado la ambigüedad de una, a menudo aburrida, abstracción): cuando uno se abandona a sí mismo, descubre que ha sido encontrado, y no al contrario. El resultado de este “encontrarse”, como ocurre en toda gran historia clásica, termina en celebración y en una maravillosa y extraña libertad.

Daniel Jándula Martín, analista cultural.

INNER WARS

Watch out for Satan
He’ll promise gold
Will give you nothing
He’ll take it all.

Thought I was stronger
Thought I was stronger
But now I’m weaker
My pride is over.

We're in a war
We need a rescue
I'm in a war
I need a rescue.

We need help
We need help
I need help
I need help.

Give me a reason and I’ll trust you
Give me the answer cause I don’t know what to do
Give me a hand and I’ll love you
Give me a new car mine is broken down in two.

Noise!
Surrounding me
Turn down the volume
I cannot think.

I feel divided
Inside of me
Between my body
And eternity.

Been entertained with TV shit
Not being conscious
Of what I need.

We’re in a war
We need a rescue
I’m in a war
I need a rescue.

My feet are rooted
Down in the ground
And though i’m trying
I cannot run.

Jesus!
We need an exit
Jesus!
I need an exit.

And I’m driving
Into the wall
And I’m losing
All the control.

We’re in a war
We need a rescue
I’m in a war
I need a rescue.

Give me a reason and I’ll trust you
Give me the answer cause I don’t know what to do
Give me a hand and I'll love you
Give me a new car mine is broken down in two.

God are you waiting though I’m so far?
God loves his children though his child don’t wanna come
God throws a party when you return.
Devil won’t be happy when you wanna “waste” your life.

Track Name: Johnny
JOHNNY

You’re out of the standard
You feel strange everywhere
You don’t fit in the world
There’s a mess in your head.

This is not what you had been waiting
Is not what you want
This is not what you expected
You’re again on the floor.

You would like to suffer
Though you hate hospitals
If at least could feel something
To be sure you’re alive!

The monster appeared
At the foot of your bed
“if you don’t want to die
You’ll be a monster as well”

Johnny invisible
Wants to find his place
Johnny sceptical
Doesn’t think that he could really change!

//Couse you’re a miracle oh oh
A miracle
Couse you’re a miracle and you don’t know
Couse you’re a miracle oh oh
A miracle
Couse you’re the miracle you were looking for//

Look at the mirror
Tell me what can you see?
I see me searching inside
For some kind of release

You might feel abandoned
You look so resigned
When both of us know
It is you who decides.

You’re tired of trying
It’s quite hard to stand up
But the answer is closer
if you don’t expect it to come

You’re tired of of waiting
For a great miracle
But love doesn’t work
If you expect in return.

Johnny invisible
Wants to find its place
Johnny sceptical
Doesn’t think that he could really change!

//Couse you’re a miracle oh oh
A miracle
Couse you’re a miracle and you don’t know
Couse you’re a miracle oh oh
A miracle
Couse you’re the miracle you were looking for//

Awake from your coma
Runaway from your home
Leave your miseries behind
What HE offers is all.

You’re not forgotten
You’re not kept of the track
If you want to feel God
You’ve got to through your gods out.

Couse you’re a miracle oh oh
A miracle
Couse you’re a miracle and you don’t know
Couse you’re a miracle oh oh
A miracle
Couse you’re the miracle you were looking for.

//Johnny realize
Johnny you’re alive//.

My dear Flotsam 2016.
Track Name: You.
YOU.

When I look in your eyes I see
All the things that you have //for me//

When I look in your hands I feel
All the things that you have to give

Don’t lose all your fire!
Don’t listen to all the liars!
Though the enemies push hard
Can be battered but not drown!

Don’t turn all the lights off
Don’t lose time on the catwalk
Don’t hide all your treasures
Stay awake until sun comes!

When I look in your mouth I hear
All the songs that you have //to fill//

When I look in your heart I breathe
All the truth that you have to keep

Don’t lose all the fire!
Don’t listen to all the liars!

Though the enemies push hard!
Can be battered but not drown
When I look in your eyes I feel
Rock and roll

Don’t hide all your treasures please!
Stay awake until summer
Please!
My heart!
Ah! Ah!
Though the enemies shake //hard//
Be still and don’t lose heart!

I believe in someone higher
I believe in a higher fire hope.

Don’t let them tie your hands
With all their high handed threats

Don’t fall in their set trap
Won’t let you change their own maps

It’s time to light up brighter
When you’re losing your colours

All fashions will die young
But i’ll always be by your side.

///When I look in your eyes I see
When I look in your hands I feel
When I look in your mouth I hear ///
///When I look in your eyes I see///.

My dear Flotsam 2016.
