Let me introduce you to Plujal… To do that, I may need some words. It all started a few years ago, when I was searching for a summer job, and, through an amazing grace from the universe, I ended up spending the five next summers as carer for a young man totally disabled, though keeping his mind clear; it's known as "locked-in syndrome". Each summers, I'd care for his daily needs for food and drinking, or help far better trained persons for his hygiene. But most of all I'd spend some of the best time, listening to music, watching series, trying not fall asleep during the long conferences about cosmology or quantum physics. I spent some of the stupidest laughs of my life with Mathieu, yet I never had the opportunity to hear any word from his mouth. Between us, it was more about what one would call telepathy. I wrote most of my first EP "Plujal" as well as my upcoming first album in Mathieu's place, which is called… Plujal, lost in some deserted southern french countryside. Inspiring house, great energies. The debut song "Mr Thumb" is dedicated to him, for he'd use his thumb to communicate. Mathieu passed away earlier this year 2014, after spending 12 years locked in his own body, he's now free to ride the comets, I can assure you he deserved it.

LYRICS
Mr Thumb
mr thumb were do you wander over ?
trapped in your body your mind flies somewhere
oh Mr thumb what are you talking about
'cannot speak but we can still understand, somehow
thumbs up thumbs up
one is no
twice is yes
oh mr thumb i wish sometimes you could tell
how you see the world through your funny eyes
oh r thumb you're no really human
but so better that any of us, really.
thumbs up thumbs up
one is no
twice is yes
locked in your own flesh
but somehow you're still fresh
the very little inch of your finger
shows us you're alive…
Last Minute
Deep sorrow, for unknown reasons
broke the wall, to win competition
but you didn't have the eraser
but you didn't have the eraser…
to take my name out of your head
to take my name out of your head
we remained the two of us in a room
in which nothing could tell we shared it for so long
i try my best, not to fall along,
what can we do ?
fucked up situation.
but you didn't have the eraser (fucked up situation)
but you didn't have the eraser (fucked up situation)
to take my name out of your head
to take my name out of your head
we feel like freezing under the sun
we feel like freezing under the sun
Upside Down
you cheer up when you get to drink with your friends
but when it's over and get back to your place
the feelings growing and you're not the only one
to think the world turns backward
the never ending story of this planet
with so misery it's upside down
you picture present, the future and past
but all you can see is the darkness around
what am i suppose to do around here ?
i try to hope for better tomorrows,
better tomorrow
the news on tv are not warming at all
they keep telling us "everything will fall "
little by little it's engraved in your mind
if they say it is sad, well, they must be right
what am i suppose to do around here ?
i try to hope for better tomorrows,
better tomorrow
We Thank You
close your eyes, they're so wide open
do not ever cry, you're no little girl
go to parties, erase your brain
with multicolor drinks, and funny smokes
we thank you for your cooperation
we thank you for your comprehension
well thank you for your cooperation
well thank you
please oh please, pretend to be happy
please oh please, pretend to feel glory
we thank you for your cooperation
we thank you for your comprehension
well thank you for your cooperation
well thank you
we thank you (please get back to work)
we thank you ( will you obey the rules ?)
well thank you ( will you follow the line)
well thank you (and act like someone good)
The Loner
the strangest dream experienced,
what if i was the last human of the earth
where're all the people ?
where have gone the animals ?
it's nothing but i cannot bare
to remain around
this emptiness, it's too much for me
i forgot how to use my tongue
i just can't be the loner
i just need any living creature
give me a tree, give me a shrimp
any something, to share with me
to share with me…
