lyrics

Neither Hare, Nor Hound

I am slipping, I’m going under
I’m trapped, losing my ground
I’d rather starve than surrender
I can’t run with the hare and hunt with the hounds

I am sinking into the mud of the river
Holding onto a tree
I am sinking into cloudy waters
I’m drowning but I’m free

I feel worn, worn out and hollow
I’ve been running and running and running, lone as a dog
I was tracked, I was followed
My fate is in the lap of the gods

I am sinking into the mud of the river
Holding onto a tree
I am sinking into cloudy waters
I’m drowning but I’m free

I am sinking
Gasping
I am sinking
I’m drowning
I am sinking…



Ni Lièvre, ni Chien


Je glisse, je coule
Je suis piégée, je perds pieds
Je préfère mourir affamée que me soumettre
Je ne peux pas courir avec le lièvre et chasser avec les chiens

Je m’enfonce dans la boue de la rivière
Je me tiens à un arbre
Je m’enfonce dans l’eau trouble
Je me noie, mais je suis libre

Je me sens usée, usée et vide
J’ai couru, seule comme un chien
J’ai été traquée, j’ai été suivie
Mon sort est entre les mains des Dieux

Je m’enfonce dans la boue de la rivière
Je me tiens à un arbre
Je m’enfonce dans l’eau trouble
Je me noie, mais je suis libre

Je m’enfonce
Le souffle coupé
Je m’enfonce
Je me noie
Je m’enfonce…
