lyrics

Les Colombes

Quand hurle en moi la meute
Que tombent les remparts
Qu’aux murs de haine se heurte
La voix de ma rage

Je suis l’oiseau qui meurt
Dans l’indifférence
Je suis les larmes du fleuve
Qui coule en silence

Quand brûle en moi l’émeute
Que plus rien n’a de sens
Qu’à la foudre, les cris de guerre
Se mêlent à la tempête

Je suis l’oiseau qui meurt
Dans l’indifférence
Je suis les larmes du fleuve
Qui coule en silence

Quand pleurent les anges le sang
Des armes qui mitraillent
Quand tombent sans défense
Les colombes sous les balles

Je suis l’oiseau qui meurt
Dans l’indifférence
Je suis les larmes du fleuve
Qui coule en silence



The Doves

When the horde screams inside,
When the ramparts fall
And when the voice of my rage collides against the walls of hate

I am the bird that dies amidst indifference
I am the tears of the river that flows in silence

When riots burn me from the inside,
When nothing makes sense anymore,
When screams of war mix with the lightning and the storm

I am the bird that dies amidst indifference
I am the tears of the river that flows in silence

When angels cry blood,
When the doves fall defenseless under bullets of machine gun fire

I am the bird that dies amidst indifference
I am the tears of the river that flows in silence
