about

Flo Chmod Strasbourg, France

« After singing and playing in multiple punk rock bands, I wanted to express myself, alone, how I felt, my political ideas, my disappointments in life. Most of the themes evoked in my songs are very personnal, and I couldn’t allow someone else to say these words, or to define the melody. I wanted to be able to play it as if we were talking, evrywhere." ... more

Track Name: Colder and Colder


I would wait for hours and hours
To see the last teardrop hitting the ground
And I would walk a thousand miles
To see a smile which has been lost

Winter is cold as never before
As if time were standing still
Despite the cold wind and rain
I can't stop roaming the empty streets

When the first ray of the sun
Appears in the sky I will not be able
To forget the nearest clouds

I would cross oceans and seas
I'm not even sure if I can swim
But there is a smile that has been lost
And I can't think of anything else

Winter's getting colder and colder
As if time were standing still
Despite the cold wind and rain
I can't stop roaming the empty streets 

And the first ray of the sun
That appears in the sky
I swear I'll try to forget the nearest clouds
Track Name: It Was Just a Phase
Some things don’t last forever
It saved my life, in a way
But my feelings have changed
Feels like I’m a stranger to myself

When your favorite place becomes as boring as your living room
Sorry Mom, it was just a phase

Maybe nothing lasts forever
And maybe everything that dies does not come back
But that doesn’t make life meaningless
There’s an endless road
Surrounded by beautiful landscapes


When your favorite song sounds like an annoying noise
What if it was a phase afterall?
Sorry Mom, it was just a phase
Track Name: I Thought I Was Prepared
I wasn't there when she passed away
Just got a phone call from my mother
She'll never know how much I loved her
It's probably better in a way

Her hospital room was never empty
Her friends visited as much as they could
When you looked at us I understood
Images that will always comfort me

I hope there's a place high above
Where angels take care of you
I hope you're feeling loved
Until I drop my very last tear

Trying to keep things together
I thought I was prepared but I wasn't
Track Name: May The Road Rise To Leave You
We were both under the same sky
I had fire in my eyes
After winter must come spring
You can’t say I didn’t try 

Who has seen a flame that never dies?
It hurt but I didn’t say anything

You can call me a coward
You can call me whatever you want
In fact, I couldn’t care less
May the road rise to leave you
I’m not in your heart
And you’ll never be in mine
You’ve chosen your way
And I’ve chosen mine

The days were becoming longer
Dark circles under my eyes
I was wrong, winter never ends
You can’t say I didn’t try
Who has seen a flame that never dies?
It hurt and I had to say something

I felt stuck
Had no time for myself
Track Name: I Wish You The Worst
Uncertain times to face
Trying hard to find your place
Feeling that you’re running out of time
But what if all the mountains are too high to climb?
But you won’t be the one being handcuffed
And you won’t be the one crying in a jail cell
Time to go our separate ways
Goodbye, I wish you the worst

You had a decision to make
You left me when I needed you the most
And I don’t miss you anymore
I won’t shed a tear for a fallen soldier

Your dream is my nightmare
All the memories we once shared
Defending the prevailing order
For what reason? Economic pressure?
But you won’t be the one being handcuffed
And you won’t be the one crying in a jail cell
Everything has been said
Farewell, I wish you the worst

You had a decision to make
You left me when I needed you the most
And I don’t miss you anymore
I won’t shed a tear for a fallen soldier
Track Name: Nothing More To Say
Believe me, there's nothing more frightening
Than a ringing telephone in the middle of the night
Nothing less comforting
Than a story you can't write

Nothing more to say
Nothing more to do
Than write words that will fade away
And look for things to hold on to

And there are plenty of things I would like to dedicate to you
Each song, each tear, each smile
Each beer I won't drink
Each fucking rhyme of each fucking line
I'll be singing until I lose my voice

I'll sing Against Me! songs all night long
Out of tune but no one will pay attention
We all have to be strong
Dealing with facts, not fiction

Nothing more to say
Nothing more to do
Than write words that won't fade away
And find things to hold on to

And there are plenty of things I would like to dedicate to you
Each song, each tear, each smile
Each beer I won't drink
Each fucking rhyme of each fucking line
I'll be singing until I lose my voice
