Bagarre - Le gouffre (English translation)

English translation

The Chasm

(1st verse)
You think that your life
Is without any importance
That words coming to you
Don't have any sense
In your head, there are noises,
You feel like an animal
You stay in your bed
You hurt when you say "I"
You dive in stoop
Without seeming to
I don't know what's eating you away
It's not that clear
I don't know what's eating you away
But you're burying yourself away
 
(Chorus) x2
The chasm is calling you
You're rappelling down
Smelling the sulphur's smell,
You're the most beautiful to me
 
(2nd verse)
You were already so tired
The year I met you
You had knives in your head
Which skimmed your skin
You were holding your hate over your shoulder
Between you and the others, it was the war
 
(Chorus) x2
That chasm (is) calling you
You're rappelling down
Smelling the sulphur's smell,
You're the most beautiful to me
 
(3rd verse)
You didn't have taste for anything,
You were in your black gut
Your days always had the same ending
You were rusting behind a bar
Now you can lay to rest
Your razor and your suitcase
Your path doesn't go further
You must improvize
 
(Bridge) x7
That chasm (is) calling you
 
(Bridge 2) x4
The chasm
 
(4th verse)
Before our hour, yell at the track
Of yours, of mine, of those who are passing by
Before our hour, yell at the track
Of yours, of mine, of those who are passing by
Before the fear, before the breakage,
I see our lives getting a move on
 
(Chorus) x4
That chasm (is) calling you
You're rappelling down
Smelling the sulphur's smell,
You're the most beautiful to me
