Le Pire

Maître GIMS

Lyrics (English translation) – Le Pire
The worst is not the wickedness of mankind
But the silence of people pretending to hesitate
And when children ask me :
“Why is the sea salty?”
I have to answer that fishes cried too much
Eh eh eh eh
So tell me what we have done
Eh eh eh eh
So tell me what we have done
I’m sitting down on my couch, watching the television
Explain me what is happening, as if I were ten years old
Darkened is my eyesight and yet the sun is here
Lecturing people wears bison jackets
Or maybe we have just lost our minds
Life is a slippery terrain, in which world do we live in?
Stop, indeed, the harm has been done
But stop, stop, stop because, indeed, the harm has been done
The worst is not the wickedness of mankind
But the silence of people pretending to hesitate
And when children ask me :
“Why is the sea salty?”
I have to answer that fishes cried too much
Eh eh eh eh
So tell me what we’ve done
Eh eh eh eh
So tell me what we’ve done
I sit down again on the couch, still watching the TV
Forced to squint, no changes forecasted
I’m going to share my problems to people who have a wealth life
They will only take me seriously if I spray myself with gas
Or maybe, quite simply, very few people are interested in me
I am maybe a market value in the eyes of some passers-by
Stop, indeed, the harm has been done
So stop, stop, stop because, indeed, the harm has been done
The worst is not the wickedness of mankind
But the silence of people pretending to hesitate
And when children ask me :
“Why is the sea salty?”
I have to answer that fishes cried too much
Eh eh eh eh
So tell me what we have done
Eh eh eh eh
So tell me what we have done
The worst is to not take advantage of the time we have left to live
The worst is to not admit all that’s happening to us
The worst is to not take advantage of the time we have left to live
The worst is to not admit all that’s happening to us
The worst is not the wickedness of mankind
But the silence of people pretending to hesitate
And when children ask me :
“Why is the sea salty?”
I have to answer that fishes cried too much
The worst is not the wickedness of mankind
But the silence of people pretending to hesitate
And when children ask me :
“Why is the sea salty?”
I have to answer that fishes cried too much
Eh eh eh eh
So tell me what we have done
Eh eh eh eh
So tell me what we have done
Eh eh eh eh
So tell me what we have done
Eh eh eh eh
So tell me what we have done
