Allez-y Arlequins
Chants d’Arlequins
Alors que les portes sont grandes ouvertes
Sur l’âme du vide…

Cette marche dans la boue
Une peur historique encore et encore en criant
Gauche – droite – gauche

Snowflakes in Brussels, the angels warm up
Every day I drive on a silver motorway that runs till the
centre of your soul
There’s pleasure in each atom,
in each atom – the universe
