 Time to wake up:

How can I leave my lands away?

How did I jump over salt spray?

When I fail, I want the power to

empower my head

But now, it's time to wake up!

How could I leave my friends over war days?

How did I swim on my back under rain?

When I fail, I want the power to

empower my head

But now, it's time to wake up!

Petrichor :

 

I feel bristling

Between the static doors

Your stern wave

raises doubts

 

Stay calm,

Canon powder

Keep your mind

over and over

 

Bombarding cardamom seeds

Windows open

The house turn in a forest

The forest is my bed

 

I slip and melts

I sweep down

into mist and sun

Boundless  hyper-drunkenness

That I breathe over and over

 

the sea as a thread

sewn by pine niddle

Applying drips of

Resin pearls.

 

Stay calm,

Canon powder

Keep your mind

over and ove

No Fears

 

I drop my needs,

and my blood runs cold

I made a cycle

to sleep welll layer by layer

 

3 calls

Jump over the wall

Eat some berries

And look at the horizon

Who want to jump or sit down?

Collect the seasons?

count the time?

 

I woke up in your arms

I stretch out,

Lost 21 grams

Even the weight of my pain

escaped by my sweat

 

Alarms

Running in the night

And by the Windows

smell the rain outside

Sunbath

in our temple

Be with you,

All with you.

My Friend:


Hello my friend!
You must be clear and accurate
I sweat so much poison
I’ve lost the terms of conditions
my thoughts sucks obviously
May you have to believe me?


I’m not a warlord
Not the referee of the discord
You wear peoples like your shoes
It makes them stable like loose tooth
All of this are so useless
You just don’t want to believe it.


You bump my head as a response
You broke my broken heart
Please be sure to sign
The mess you left behind
You really don’t want to hear it my dear
You should trust and believe me


You better look down
And think simplicity
You better look down in your mind
And think simplicity
You better “go down”
And think simplicity
You better touch down
And think simplicity


You better look, look down
You better “go down”
You better touch down
And think simplicity!!!

Sceptre & Orb

 

I am Rockall

I'm solitary

I am Rockall

in the middle of your tears 

 

Sterilize my efforts !

It can't be decent !

 

My name's north pole

I'm solitary

I am name's Rockall

In the middle of your fears

 

Sterelize my efforts !

It can't be decent !  

Drunk:

I'm open to the dialogue,

Who don't want to getting older ?

I lock, I  block my stupid mind

Then, I feel better with my brain now!

I can’t do it before being sure that nothing overflows

I'm open to the dialogue,

Who don't want to getting older ?

 

 

Be a shark, be a men, be a mother fucker

You’ll have the whole world in your hands.

Grows up! Grows up! Be a big boy

Everyone will offer you the best toys

 

I'm open to the dialogue,

Who don't want to getting older ?

But for now I want lay down

Under a fountain of champagne or grenadine. 

I'm open to the dialogue,

Who don't want to getting older ?

Good

 

Here….Here we are

Letting the wind dry our hair

 

Here ! Here I am

An intense tast

Good view

 

Hey !! make it prouder

make it louder

here we go !

 We are founders

Make it louder !

Here we go

 

Now, you can do what you want

 

Hey !! make it prouder

make it louder

here we go !

Hey !! We are founders

Make it louder !

Here we go

MUD

 

Some clay of coal on the slippery pavements,

Mixture of hoarfrost and dirty cottons,

Delicious mud

Under my nails there is some hardened asphalt

Streaked with wear,

too much washes, too much wringing

Vile forgiveness, calcareous raid,

The fluorine which I chew,

the stone toothpaste.

Human mud

I’m tired to carry a so heavy skeleton

I ‘m a worm on the fishhook

I’m tired to carry you and your dusty skeleton

I’m the bait on the fishhook

Flight Desk:

 

It’s in your palms love,

The choice in your hands

It’s like you denied it

I’ll be far for long

I can’t leave the flight desk

But it’s a step for the best

It’s like you denied it

Well, I don’t go

 

It’s in your palms love

The choice burn your hands

It’s like yu denied it

I’ll be far !

So long !

I can’t leave your arms now

But I go build my nest

It’s like you denied it… well

I don’t go…

 

Wait….

 

Good bye my love.

RUN :

 

This storm as to come,

I run out, up my arms

I am resilient

You had to destroy all

You had to burn our houses

I am resilient now

 

Put your feet in my belly

Put your feet on my face

I stay resilient

You made a bridge this is a whole road

you offered me...

I make a wish, for your life

 

I'm scared, every single moves,

More I run, more I'm afraid

It's gorgeous!!

 

This storm as to come,

I run out, up my arms

I am resilient

 

Fall a kiss my belly

Put your lips in my cheeks

I melt

You made a bridge; this is a whole road

you offered me...

I make a wish, for our lives.

 

 

How long I have been here, and disolve your heart

I think I’ve been late to take the train

How long I have been here, and disolve your heart

I think I’ve been late to go

 

I fall apart, in random, and know I love you still

I fall apart, in random, and know I love you still

 Shy Sun :

 

I coming inside the room

Watching your head

I turning around the bed

Kissing your hairs

 

You had enough time to sleep

My shy sun

 

I coming inside the bed

Caress your hand

I snuggled against your back

Kissing your lips

 

You had enough time to sleep

My shy sun

 

Your light is turning on

My love

Your light is turning on

Enough !

 

You had enough time to sleep

My shy sun…

Welcome to the secret Rockall stream page !

Rockall is the top of a submarine volcano, situated in the middle of north atlantic, between America and Europe.

I choose this name for all the symbols this very small island inspires me: statelessness, solitary, and probably this dramatic geographic situation.

I wanted to create something exaggerated, excentric, as I can be very drama queen sometimes.

But also sensitive, lush and electric

When I started to record the first demos for this project, I found a blurry line who can be the subject :"being far"

I projected myself sitting on this small rock, surrounded by waves and winds... then progressively, the shells and rocks started to envelop me, the Rockall character was born.

I wanted to create a soundscape between synth-wave and baroque choir, something probably exaggeratedly kitsch and dramatic, like a shojo manga or a Sci-fi B movie.

Rockall starts on stage, with a 4 peoples choir band and my machines, so most of the album version have been experimented live. The songs took so many shapes, I have the feeling this is pretty similar than the erosion phenomena, water and wind ate the rock and made appear the mother of pearl.
