The first song Jacques wrote, partly inspired by the film Wild Side (Sebastien Liefshitz) and by the idea of watching a family film where you see your mother pregnant of you and then you see yourself playing with her in the next frame. It's a song about perceiving one's identity.


Holding back the stars
She left in my eyes
as the images unwound
on past life's surprises
I was watching on the telly
the growth of her belly
with me in it

Frames fell in cascades
her belly fell down
there's a baby in my shade
he climbs on his star in black gown
in the garden full of roses
they're striking the poses of gods.

Holding, holding,
all this time I've been
holding, leaving
all the memories behind.

as I walk out through the door
into the garden, now
I wear her black gown

It's here, lonely through the roses
I was born through her belly scar.
