about

Fast Lane France

Lancé dans la profondeur, Fast Lane débarque avec son punk rock rapide et mélodique. (Il paraît que si Zizou n'avait pas été au réal, il aurait joué dans Fast Lane)

A strong through pass for Fast Lane and it's a clinical, fast and melodic punk rock to come. (They say if Zidane didn't play for Real Madrid, he'd have played for Fast Lane)

Track Name: Here's Your Happy Fucking Ending
Here’s your fucking happy ending,
It’s not the way it is,
Or anyway not the way you expect it to be,

Reality’s not sad or fine, it’s just real
You act just like you’re not responsible
And I’m trying to explain to you, if you need,
Your substance to go through, like a daily feed,

You are missing the best way to love yourself,
You’re getting high on getting put on the shelf,

And i know you’re better than that,
Stronger than what you tryna escape from.
And i know you’re better than that,
Stronger than what you think of you is a mistake.
Track Name: Clench Your Fist Again
I wish I was wrong-and,
I wish you were strong-er,
And if I need a reason,
To clench my fist again.

It would be for you to stand-and,
It would be for make you grand-and,
From my helping hand,
Which clench its fists again.

And I know, that’s not the way it is,
At the end of the tunnel, you’ll see the light !

I know that it’s hard-and,
That you’re discouraging,
But please find a reason,
To your clench your fist again.

And in the end-you’ll see,
this fucking light, shining,
Here is your one reason,
To clench your fist again
Track Name: The Stars Were In Your Eyes
Is this the end of the darkness,
Lying on the ground, looking at the sky,
This moment in my head, A lifelong commitment,
The only thing above, Sincerity and love…

The stars were in your eyes
And I stare at your smile, like a last beer in the pack
The stars were in your eyes
I was wondering a little, take it now or wait to crack

Is this the end of the loneliness.
Someone who cares, that’s all fucking fair,
This moment in my heart,
A peacefull and warm feeling,
Only you in my sight,
The magic of the night

The stars were in your eyes
And I stare at your smile, like a last beer in the pack
The stars were in your eyes
I was wondering a little, take it now or wait to crack
Track Name: Points Of Agreement
I can get
the way that what you feel is strong and I ‘ve, No doubt about
your sincere,
but i guess you got a strong bias, you got a strong bias,

And I’m asking you to listen
to the reasonnable logic
of the way that you can’t,
say something’s true
cause you feel it when it’s,
obviously negatable.

And I know
you suffer from some hardships, but who does not, so stop dumbing anymore
So we would
got some points of agreements around a rational purpose.

And I’m asking you to listen
to the reasonnable logic
of the way that you can’t,
say something’s true
cause you feel it when it’s,
obviously negatable.

And that’s all
Track Name: It Has To Make Sense
Give it a sense, don’t give a fuck,
It’s all in your hands, you just have to work,
The pride you get, from what you’ve done,
And overall, share your passion !

It has to make sense, And it’s making it
I don’t wanna do something else, I’d die for it
Passion overall, New friends to meet
My only escape, my perfect exit

Now I figure it out,
Nothing left to fight,
Foundations are strong,
I know it’s not wrong.

And now, because of all, it’s perfectly fine,
And now,because of us, it’s the best way i’ve found,
And now, because of all, it’s perfectly fine,
And now, because of us, it’s the best way i’ve found,
Track Name: Last Week Before Fall
We were waiting for the call,
And the call came,
On the last week before Fall,
We get the beers in the van.

And so we packed our bags and took our beers,
Got amazed by the drive, blessed by the years,
We’re seeing double, before the night falls,
Dancing on the tables, because we guess we shall.

But when Jo finished the Rum,
It was so crucial, it’s irrational
I can’t find any reason,
And after all, he’s still a nice person
But tell me why
Why he put this stick in his butt.

But now i can tell you the story,
Because i did worse right after it,
Two guys don’t have the balls to be gay,
And you know, Life is always a challenge !

And so we packed our bags and took our beers,
Got amazed by the drive, blessed by the years,
We’re seeing double before the night falls,
Dancing on the tables, because we guess we shall.

But when Jo finished the Rum,
It was so crucial, it’s irrational
I can’t find any reason,
And after all, he’s still a nice person
But tell me why
Why he put this stick in his butt.
Track Name: Angels Are Free
There’s always a sun in the sky,
For I know, you smile from afar,
Feelings are blurry, Words are clumsy.

T’was clear at the beginning,
That we can’t stick forever.
T’was sad in the ending,
But that’s the way it is.

But angels are free,
And you’re more than an angel to me.
So do what you want,
Even if it’s not around me !

There’s always a sun in the sky,
For I know, you smile from afar,
Feelings are blurry, Words are clumsy.

Time’s flying by really fast,
My opinion about you won’t change,
You’re so special, and that’s so crucial !

T’was the worst idea we,
Could ever have in the while,
T’was the best moments I spent,
But that’s the way it is.

But angels are free,
And you’re more than an angel to me.
So do what you want,
Even if it’s not around me !
Track Name: Stop Bashing Society
You said,
All these things did not go according to plans,
but is there really a plan,
And i don’t know if it’s following,
To claim to go against the grain,
To shout than you are someone’s different,
Maybe it’s a way for you to stand
Beside the line as a gimmick,
While you’re just a piece of nothing,
But you will always make me laugh,
And I can tell you who you are,

Fuckin normal as I am

So stop bashing about society, and i’ll stop bashing you,
So stop bashing about society, and i’ll stop bashing you,

About you
Track Name: True North
I heard you were looking for something special,
Something that no one- else but you can be sure of,
A new way of living in this too perfect world,
Far from the same old- story to clone.

So you decide to take your back pack on,
and take the first flight to escape,
From this reality full of mediocre,
and turn the light out to escape,

Is this the way to find yourself, Is this the only way to live,
Is that your path to the true north, Ain’t it really worth it.

I heard everything’s going well for you,
And i’m glad you’re happy in each moment
A picture of you smiling is a sun
So please keep on doing this my friend

So you decide to take your back pack on,
and take the first flight to escape,
From this reality full of mediocre,
and turn the light out to escape,

Is this the way to find yourself, Is this the only way to live,
Is that your path to the true north, Ain’t it really worth it.
Track Name: Who's Not Here Ain't Always Wrong
It’s all about getting proud and strong,
And also how complaining’s wrong,
You know when everything’s absurd,
When all your world is fucking blurred again

And the stars are shining midly,
And the sun is there but cold,
You can feel the melancholy,
Nothing’s different but you’re gone !

I am not blaming anything,
But the void is clearly there,
And even if you’re missing,
I’ll stand for you in here.

Who’s not here ain’t always wrong,
Can just be dead,
Can just be dead.

The worst i see in every place
Is that you won’t be there with me
The best i got from anything
I will never share it with you

Who’s not here ain’t always wrong,
Can just be dead,
Can just be dead.

The worst i see in every place
Is that you won’t be there with me
The best i got from anything
I will never share it with you
Track Name: I'll Cherish Life For It
The only thing we have is Time, And that’s all
And I’ll cherish, Life for that and i’m not scared
Thanks for the sharings, the listennings, when you care,
And I will cherish Life for it again

Even when the waves surge towards the shore,
We’ll surf on them like we’re not feared at all,

And I’ll cherish Life for it that's makes me proud
Trials by fire always are the best !

Everyday brings its own surprises, And that’s how it works,
And I’ll cherish Life for it, Thanks for the support,
The laughters and when you’re here,
The best feel of comfort
But if i have to board a boat i'd sail alway to your port

Even when the waves surge towards the shore,
We’ll surf on them like we’re not feared at all,

And I’ll cherish Life for it !
Trials by fire always are the best !
Track Name: Saturday Cockfighting
I got a plan, you got a plan,
But I’m a man and
you’re a man, So I can’t stand
The way you stand,
I can drink even more than you,
I can run even faster than you,

Hey ! Oh ! Hey !

I need you to know that how much you’re a twat,
Compared to me, Or at least, to whom I think I am,
At least, I hope you won’t give a damn,
Cause i would be so frustrated,

Hey ! Oh ! Hey !

Saturday Cockfighting !
