lyrics

Lambeaux

On vient tous de la même mère
On est tous dans la même galère
On respire le même air
On finira dans la même poussière

J’compte les abeilles, les papillons
Les espèces en disparition
Où sont passés les moineaux
De mes rues en lambeaux

Les mers sombrent, la terre se meurt
Comment remonter le temps ?
Tout s’effondre le long du fleuve
De la source à l’océan

Que vaut la bravoure
Dans un cœur indifférent
Une ombre à contre-jour
Dans ce siècle en fragments

Qu’on déroule le tapis rouge
Ou les grillages de barbelés
Qu’on suive ou pas le discours
Tout est à vendre, tout à jeter

Les mers sombrent, la terre se meurt
Comment remonter le temps ?
Tout s’effondre le long du fleuve
De la source à l’océan

Les nuits grondent, les jours s’effleurent
Comment renverser le vent
On s’enfonce, le ciel se creuse
Qu’est-ce qu’on laisse à nos enfants ?



In Pieces

We are all of the same mother
We are all in the same boat
We breathe the same air
We will end up as the same dust

I count the bees, the butterflies
The endangered species
Where have the sparrows gone
From my crumbling streets

The seas are declining, the earth is dying
How can we go back in time?
Everything is collapsing along the river
From the source to the ocean

What is bravery worth
To an indifferent heart
A back-lit shadow
In this fragmented century

Whether we roll out the red carpet
Or the barbwire fence
Whether we agree with the rhetoric or not
Everything is for sale, everything is disposable

The seas are declining, the earth is dying
How can we go back in time?
Everything is collapsing along the river
From the source to the ocean

The nights are echoing, the days are skimming past each other
How can we turn the wind around?
We are digging ourselves in deeper, the sky is caving in
What are we leaving behind for our children?
