lyrics

Orange Sea

I feel the fire
Burning the trees
Burning desire
In an orange sea

I feel danger
I’m feeling grief
I feel a growing desert
Under my feet

Wild
Were the horses
Running in the field
White
Were the roses
Drying
On the street

Is it too late?
Are we heading for a wall?
Down with the buffaloes
We tumble and fall

Into the spinning wheel
Of a hopeless rat race
How might we heal
Be free of the maze

Wild
Were the horses
Running in the field
White
Were the roses
Drying
On the street

Plastic faces
Frozen and numb
What a masquerade
We have become

Toxic splendours
In a world of wounds
I miss the songbirds
The howl of the wolves



Mer de Braises

Je sens le feu
Qui brûle les arbres
Qui brûle le désir
Dans une mer de braises

Je sens le danger
La douleur
Je sens un désert qui croît
Sous mes pieds

Sauvages
Etaient les chevaux
Qui couraient dans le pré
Blanches
Etaient les roses
Qui sèchent sur la route

Est-ce trop tard ?
Allons-nous droit dans le mur ?
Nous dégringolons et tombons
Comme les bisons des falaises

Dans la roue
D’une course folle sans espoir
Comment guérir
Nous libérer du labyrinthe

Sauvages
Etaient les chevaux
Qui couraient dans le pré
Blanches
Etaient les roses
Qui sèchent sur la route

Des visages de cire
Figés et insensibles
Quelle mascarade
Nous sommes devenus

Des splendeurs toxiques
Dans un monde de blessures
Le chant des oiseaux
Le hurlement des loups me manquent
