Marquis de Sade - Air-tight cell
Air-Tight Cell RectoAir-Tight Cell Verso

 

Cindy, maugled child in the air-tight cell, set up in jail
Surrounded by switched off T.V.'s, no yell
You're living alone on a little scene
Miming your life. Tell me what does it mean ?
You'd better close / close your eyes
You'd better close / close your eyes
You'd better walk inside 
And travel through your mind
Find out the beast that sleeps deep inside of you.

Your body is shut in an endless nightmare
Betraid by the outside your wide opened eyes stare
At the poor girl crushed by mechanised demands
Choked by artificial desires to the end

There is no outside, it's just a lie
There is no outside, it's just a laid down dream
There is no outside, nothing except your mind...

Oh Henry ! I tell you it's no use trying to put out your eyes
You feel the stiffness invade your flesh and crawl to your mind
She shut you in a box and said : you must wait !
She shut you in a box but I'll teach you to hate
Hey Hey Hey Hey

Oh Henry ! 20 years old, it would seem that you are too old
A broken toy, you're just a kind of walking living deadman
She shut you in a box and tried to break you heart
She shut you in a box and she hoped you'd die

Oh Henry ! What will be your vision of this world ?
May be watch Henry what she'll allow you to watch
She shut you in a box and then she told you the words
Splashes of cold light that destroyed all your hopes

Oh come down here Henry
I won't leave you alone
Don't let yourself go Henry
Come on and watch TV at home

Is it a lie ? Is it a lie ?

Philippe Pascal
