Je crains le jour

Author Comments

I had had the idea for this song, loop, whatever, as early as 2008, fearing my own death -- either at the hands of my parents, or the state in which I grew up. The fear of times to come drove the creation of this song. I had one line, the starting one.

Fast forward eight years and today, I still have an immense fear of what the tides of the world spell. In fact, even more immense than before. I recorded this on a whim, in spite of my ongoing projects, motivated by fear. Fear was what could be heard in my voice, fear was what could be heard in the music.



Je crains le jour ou je m'enivre
Je crains la mort quand elle se lève
Ses yeux rougeâtres, qui brulent d'envie
De voir ma vie s'aspirer

Je crains le jour qui me rapproche
Et surtout l'ombre qui me couvre
Car toute richesse, toute trace de gloire,
Elle n'est enfin que la poussière


I fear the day where I inebriate myself
I fear the day when death rises
Her reddish eyes, which burn with desire
To see my life sucked away

I fear the day which approaches me
And especially the shadow which covers me
For every richness, every trace of glory
Is in the end nothing but dust


Very good song !

are you french ?

Troisnyx responds:

No, but I learned French in secondary school. I speak it fairly fluently as a result.


Very nice (and intriguing.) work, this is truly a good masterpiece.

Troisnyx responds:


This is haunting and beautiful, it is the type of music that I would expect to be in a final boss fight from Half-life. I love the general rhythm and how it flows together into what could be a loop. Fantastic job on this.

Oh my. Thank you~
I haven't investigated the OST of Half Life, but I will take a look now that you've mentioned it.

Great song
