Nicholas Palace is out of the cave he walked all the path, he forgot the days of the poetry boy who screamed from his heart “that one was demented”... and now he feels smart Nicholas Palace is perfectly all right with dynastic richness and class parasites he sits at the party, he toasts with the king on his Chris Kerr's suit there's no stain of ink Nicholas Palace is doing very well he's got porcelain and advice to sell his young demented self lies down in the sands after building the pulpit for the withered old man his young demented self lies down in the sands after building a pulpit for this withered old man

for him it's when wakes up and it's dark looks at his daughter sleeping, and he smiles for her it's when he opens the door gives her a kiss and says “have a lovely day” and she comes back for another one for them it's when stretch on the couch and there comes the dog, because she is the star for me it's when we're staying in bed alarm goes off and we become a nest and there's nothing else we need in our nest (except a coffee) there's nothing else we need in our nest (except a coffee)

I think people are more interesting than gods, and I believe we don't need gods or idols or any other superior entities any more. I don't even like people who believe that we still need gods. It seems to me they just don't want to feel responsible for what they do, so they always try to be part of a team, and on the top of this team (or church or country or religion or whatever) there's always a god telling them they are the best, the world is a bad place: "People are bad, you had to be bad. Now ask for forgiveness, and go to sleep”. I don't want this in my life. What I want is other human beings who inspire me and bring me to a place where I can ask myself what is right and what is wrong, and then I act and I am responsible for what I did. Do not put anyone in a frame, do not give anyone superpowers. Why should you need gods when you have John Peel or PJ Harvey or Meryl Streep and Stanley Kubrick and Kim Gordon? Fallible fantastic inspiring people – but just people, like you - trying to create and share beauty, not just looking for excuses to absolve themselves from having done bad things to other people because the world is a bad place. Why should you need gods when you have Kim Gordon?

L.'s in trouble knows it's all a big mistake T. keeps being late to be noticed now and then R. can just smile it is never time to hate B. still looks for new mind tricks to win for free and that's how we all can deny our pain P. gets drunk and asks himself “is this for real?” A. plays the game follows rules and fills the box S. is planning futures never-to-be-lived I am singing that's the way I better lose I am singing that's the way I better lose and that's how we all can deny our pain and that's why we'll give in to what we made and that's why we all can deny our pain and that's why we'll give in to what we made to what we made

this is the perfect pop song because it will go on the radio every day and you will sing it when you go the beach and have your best time this is the perfect pop song because it was written on the back of a wine shop invoice and for sure the people who drank that wine then made love this is the perfect pop song because it is short and simple and easy to understand but there is a line for Democritus and Leibniz that's cool, ah? this is the perfect pop song because it could have been “this is not the perfect pop song” but that would have been a lying title for the perfect pop song this is the perfect pop song because doesn't have a chorus, that's a waste of time doesn't have a verse, that's a waste of time doesn't tell sad stories it was made only to be whistled this is the perfect pop song because this is the perfect pop song

it was taking a long time many tears in our blood not to be scared of weekend trying to make some dreams true to put trust in a new friend to deserve my respect it was taking forever to get used to disease to forgive all the kisses and start loving the scars to accept there's as beauty as senselessness in us would have taken a lifetime no one would have believed that there is no resentment in our good-looking days you can't hide from your own thoughts you can't clean dirty loves

about

"not to be scared of weekend" was written and recorded at my place in Berlin, between May and November 2023.

I started composing these songs after spending one month in Montreal working at Hotel2Tango with Howard Bilerman and Shae Brossard, putting on tape an album (which will be released later this year) made of pictures of people about to reset their dreams and suitcases about to be closed.

Once in Berlin, I found myself writing the stories of why those dreams had to be reset and those suitcases filled.

To me, this album is a painting in which I am at my desk, surrounded by armies I know I have to confront, trying to finish a book of previous chapters for stories yet to be told.
