Where is the world headed? (Où va le monde)

English translation

Where is the world headed?

Where is the world headed?
Please tell me?
Where is the world headed?
I ask myself where is the world headed
Where is the world headed, where is the world headed?
 
Chorus x2:
Where is the world headed? (Where is the world headed)
Please tell me? (Where is the world headed)
Where is the world headed? (Where is the world headed)
I ask myself (Where is the world headed)
 
Lying calmly under a tree
My eyes glued to the sky
I ask myself
What is time if I don't follow my heart
Is life a concert with death in the audience
Why do people fight wars with guns
When ever so often words are enough
Why does life make us cry so many tears
Does Man play the part of the good or evil?
I don't know, I ask myself questions
I can move forward but in what direction?
Reflection must come before action
Depending on the actions, its joys or disappointments
I expect answers and solutions
We are millions living on Earth
Along with Cancers and pollution
Are we allied with one another or adversaries?
 
Chorus x2:
Where is the world headed? (Where is the world headed)
Please tell me? (Where is the world headed)
Where is the world headed? (Where is the world headed)
I ask myself (Where is the world headed)
 
I walk calmly in my neighbourhood
I feel gazes upon me
Drunks, the scum of society
No one but Piaf sees life in shades of pink
11 p.m. amongst cops and drag queens
Young people smoke crack, apparently that's fashionable
Drugs have taken over the streets
I look for the remainders of an easy life
Ask the kids, their best friend is their iPod
We don't communicate anymore, our friends are forgotten
We repudiate our family but we chat with the entire globe
Internet, PSP, Nintendo Wii
 
I ask myself if there's anything to be done
Time goes by so slowly when we count the seconds
Satan is in the world and his cunning ways has deceived people
I ask myself where is the world headed?
 
Chorus x2:
Where is the world headed? (Where is the world headed)
Please tell me? (Where is the world headed)
Where is the world headed? (Where is the world headed)
I ask myself (Where is the world headed)
 
It's been hours since I sat down in front of my piece of paper
Looking for a subject but ideas escape me
I have trouble filling my white sheet
I think of everything, of nothing
Of the vastness
From my window I write about everything I see
The people from my area, the problems in my city
I'll redo the world with a few pieces of wood
While I wait, I'll redo it in my notebook
 
Chorus x4:
Where is the world headed? (Where is the world headed)
Please tell me? (Where is the world headed)
Where is the world headed? (Where is the world headed)
I ask myself (Where is the world headed)
