Story

The last music video for the french band Matmatah. The lyrics are talking about religion.

Details

It was a great experience for me because we made it with a very small team. Most part of the time, we were 3 on the set.


We are drifting on the surface,
Unaware what’s down below,
Candidates to be someone that no one ever knows,
There is so much going on, you don’t know what is right or wrong,
I don’t understand their aim, but we’re going all the same.

And so we burn until we learn, about the things we shouldn’t do,
Some people laugh while others cry, but you know that’s nothing new,
If there’s a God then what’s his name? Does he know what’s going on?
If love is the reason we are here where did it go?
I don’t really wanna know.

Come on don’t make me laugh, there’s no surprise around the bend,
They say that things are gonna change, but they never tell us when,
Work for all you’re worth there isn’t time to take a break,
We’re all alone, all in the race
To get the cherry on the cake.

We are fooled into believing, the words from books that Man has changed,
To make a system like today, where only imbeciles can play.
I refuse to stand and watch. I’m gonna fight until I die,
We’ve got everything we need, for everybody to get by,

All you merry silly guys remove the blinkers from your eyes,
You’re welcome to this world of mine, It’s time you realised.

If there is a god, then what’s his name? Does he know what’s going on?
I’ve read the books, they’re all the same, the same old song.
Here’s not where I belong.

Come on don’t make me laugh, there’s no surprise around the bend,
It’s sure that things are gonna change, but however will it end.
You can never win the game, ‘cos everyday they change the rules,
I’d sooner be the one I am than go dancing with the fools.
Be careful what you do today, you’ve got so much there at stake
And in the end it will be me
That gets the cherry on the cake
I’ll get the cherry on the cake.
