Lord Valkyria It's like listening a continuous concept and record even previous of "dans le oeil..." reminded the late 80s. None influence of this next century music

WotanAK This album represents the triumphant return of one of the most important pioneers of the dark wave/electro-goth rock genre, in the same league as legends like Clan of Xymox. Bands such as The Frozen Autumn, Hidden Place and so many others undoubtedly owe their very existence to the influence of Handful of Snowdrops. III is a masterpiece of an album from beginning to end, perfectly capturing their original sound while simultaneously progressive and infused with heartfelt emotion. Welcome back!

Dead City 05:37
Dead City (J.P Mercier/M. Mercier) Home is where your heart's confined You wear its shame, you wear its face Home's where you were left behind It's scars and memories time won't erase Home is where ignorance roams Home is where the bigots never sleep Where hatred goes down to the bone Where goes the promises you won't keep It's where winter sieges all year long Home is where you try and where you fail Home is where our names are carved in stone It's where our last breath will be exhaled Home is where they love their home Home is where their neighbours don't exist Home is walled up with a stack of stones And home will have you crushed if resist Where what you wished for in this life Missed every turn Where every bridge your raised Collapsed and burned Home is where you will find me My home is the dead city Home is where your heart's confined You wear its shame, you wear its face Home's where you were left behind It's scars and memories time won't erase Home's nothing like what we were told It doesn't get any worse than this It's much more than a heart can ever hold An exile I've turned down for a kiss
3.
The Man I Show The World (J.P Mercier/M. Mercier) I walk the line, dissembling Backward with my eyes closed It's not the same without you knowing I'm the devil you don't know In less time it took to say it They were beating down the door I'm just a coward and an hypocrite I'm rotten to the core But he's the man I show the world… How I hate the love you have for me Like November and it's skeletal trees (He's the man I show the world) May your curse fall on my enemies As vile as the man that no one sees (He's the man I show the world) The second I was born I started dying Made up my mind there and then To this day I still kill myself trying To kill myself once again
4.
The Kill 04:32
The Kill (J.P Mercier/M. Mercier) Shame won't keep you nice and warm I'm stupid, It's rooted Face lined and worn Discarded, excluded Things were always black or white I'm bad luck, It's clear cut Haven't got all night Fill your cup and drink up The wine… as dark as any starless night I'm scratching at the walls Dust raining from the ceiling This is my curtain call My patience wearing thin The right hand on my heart Not meant to stop the bleeding All's fair in love and war So I'm going in for the kill I might as well have passed you by I keep silent, no movement No tears were cried I couldn't, we're even Outside of the chalk outlines No reasons, are given No early signs Just broken sarcasm Two words… as dark as any starless night There's a time to born and a time to die
5.
Wreckage 07:20
Wreckage (J.P Mercier/M. Mercier) Where there is life there is no hope But one blank, tear stained, beaten face Feels like your heart creeps up your throat When your bitten tongue no longer tastes I don't know how many kicks and punches But it's a carnage I'm not sure how many lines or pages If there's a message No, I dont' know how many strides and pushes, threats or courage I'm not even sure if one could assess the damage Or find the wreckage Today's goat, good father knows. His fists clenched, spitting in my face
6.
Breaking Bones (J.P Mercier/M. Mercier) And through the valleys they come drumming Dragging whores of fears to come Wrapped in colors, pulling heartstrings Every man and woman strummed Gather all if you love magic You never seem to have enough Neons, glitters, pulling hat tricks Plowing hearts and seeding lust Digging holes will leave you breathless Dirty hands and aching arms They can use our backs as stepping stones They know we love the sound of breaking bones They will use our backs as stepping stones They know how much we love those breaking bones Here comes Midas' second coming They won't turn back, they're too far gone
7.
Fall In Line 04:15
Fall In Line (J.P Mercier/M. Mercier) Each and every lines were drawn Up until the break of dawn Where you spilled your heart to me You spilled your heart to me No nothing could've held in place The truth is a cold embrace So you're not what you claim to be No, you're not what you claim to be You're a shadow stretching in the twilight When the sun can finally let go of the sky To fall in line If what you want is peace of mind When comes the time Just fall in line It's simply cause/effect, that pain in your chest Is the last thing standing but for loneliness Venom slowly dripping drop by drop Remains of battles never fought
8.
Everything Is Number (J.P Mercier/M. Mercier) All came about like magic And lies between the lines That sweet smell of mystic Is nothing but a lie We can call it faith But its true name is denial Ignoring is your choice Oblivious but divine Still the Holy Spirit's voice Is nothing but a lie That you're calling faith But its true name is denial It's all just numbers… Perfectly ordered Breeding the answers Real, prime and whole There is no soul Some of us better Better than others Compiling numbers Even and odd There is no god Everything is number… Here in the hands of weakness All sheltered and confined No one feels the urge to confess We are nothing but a lie Because we still call it faith When its true name's still denial
9.
Forever It Goes (J.P Mercier/M. Mercier) When a heart falls in defeat There is no air it can breath Where a wound closes another one is open There's no you, there's no me And no stars that you can see Or reflexions from the surface of the ocean Children please behold What these arms once enfold One of these, or one of those To whoever wants it most It goes… it flows We came too close, And reeling from the blows Then to, whoever wants it most Forever it goes Shot full of holes, Still reeling from the blows Then to, whoever wants it most Forever it goes Old memories die so hard Not a slime chance passed my guard There are no blanks In the absence of motion For a single night could you Breath something back into Into a realm that's been drained of emotion
10.
It Can Only Mean One Thing (J.P. Mercier/ M.Mercier) Heavy bed sheets, Walking shadow play, Parading blank stares, So is it my heartrate? Will you have to operate? Spat out in a blast, In a dry but forgiving quick flare Sleep is everything We'll just give you something — We have a nice room with a view… I should listen to wisdom — In there we can take care of you… But my heart is still numb — Yes, but win a few, loose a few… I feel empty as they come — We tried everything get through… Get through to you Out of that oddly moving mouth All skin and creaky bones Comes a mantra That should beat your karma — We have a nice room with a view… I should listen to wisdom — In there we can take care of you… But my heart is still numb — Yes, but win a few, loose a few… I feel empty as they come — We tried everything get through… But if there's really nothing you can do This can only mean one thing, It can only mean one thing, Nothing that I loved has survived, It's already gone I mean everything and everyone, This can only mean one thing, It can only mean one thing, Nothing that I've done will survive Not even one Gone will be every note of every song Stop gazing down You walking blank page syndromes Don't let it in there Cut or rip it out of there — We have a nice room with a view… I should listen to wisdom — In there we can take care of you… But my heart is still numb — Yes, but win a few, loose a few… I feel empty as they come — We tried everything get through… — We have a nice room with a view… But there’s nothing there to see — In there we can take care of you… Please don’t bring me to my knees — Yes, but win a few, loose a few… This whole logic is failing me — We tried everything get through… But if there's really nothing you can do This can only mean one thing, It can only mean one thing, Nothing that I loved has survived, It's already gone I mean everything and everyone, This can only mean one thing, It can only mean one thing, Nothing that I've done will survive Not even one Gone will be every note of every song
