OLV 26 Lyrics

Lyrics


Depuis le temps que c'est promis
nous irons tous au paradis
c'est un appel sourd une promesse
aveuglante qui noie la conscience
ce paradis me p╦se, son poids
incommensurable abruti
ancr╚e dans des strates profondes
une pulsion des plus ali╚nantes
telle une fausse lib╚ration
un ╚tat de pure d╚pendance
le paradis est derri╦re moi
dans le ventre de ma maman
unchallenged myths, they lie heavy
l'imaginaire is our worse enemy
the paradise, what an idea
a guardian still on duty
translation
Ever since it's been promised
we'll all go to heaven
it's a deaf summon
a blinding promise that drowns the conscience
this paradise weighs heavy
it's immeasureable weight stupefies
anchored in deep layers
a most alientating pulsation
and like a false liberation
a state of pure addiction
the paradise is behind me
in my mother's womb
unchallenged myths they lie heavy
the imaginary is our worst enemy
the paradise, what an idea
a guardian still on duty
