Let Your Body Die
Si t’as rien dans le ventre, t’es aussi niaiseux que les autres ?
[ Death is not the end ]
Life is boiling up and undulating
while oblivion covers up the world
not to cool or comfort but to level
the few remains of hope we still feel
Whispers and hums are heard here and there
witnesses of some event to come
every nerve is on edge and vibrating
throbbing before the break of the storm
Far away, loud and clear
I heard a voice cry in my ear
Remain chained to the matter
or let your body die
Not with you yet already abandoned
in the dismal silence of a slough
mankind is in the hands of a monster
an ogre gorging on this fallen despair
And the voices of those yearning for light
and their thoughts before becoming acts
get diverted, betrayed and distorted
get distracted, ignored and destroyed
Such is the state of this convulsing world
such is the fate of this body of christ
such are the days meant to wreck and deface
such is the weight of the burden to bear
Far away, loud and clear
I heard a voice cry in my ear
Remain chained to the matter
or let your body die
Your body has already done a lot of changes
that’s only the beginning
the beginning of the new flesh
All the twists and turns of our life
pull us back to the place we came from
there’s no faith in our hearts of stone
we have no torch to light up the trail
is it still time to make for the open
did we squander the talents we had
can we still awake and then revive them
are they still expecting our call
are they still expecting our call
