Desireless - Qui peut savoir (English translation)

English translation

Who can say?

Who are the chosen ones?
Who are the tramps?
Who are the gods, the dogs, who can say?
 
....
....
Amidst crowds, idols and churches
Who can say?
Amidst all these trains speeding
(woo) in the dark,
where are our regrets, where are our hopes?
Who can say?
And will you still love me when the rain will come?
Who can say?
 
...
...
Amidst the shadows
and thousands of whispers
Who can say? Who can say?
Amidst all the sleepwalkers
(woo) in the dark
Who are the doves, who are the crows,
who can say?
And wiull you still love me when the rain will come?
Who can say?
 
Amidst masks and silent passions
Who can say?
Amids all these clenched fists
(woo) in the dark
Who are the bastards?
Who are the saviours?
Who are the armless,
Who are the jugglers?
Who can say?
 
Inside the road dirt,
amidst murky waters,
who can say?
Amidst all there rolling stones
(woo) in the dark,
who are the monsters, who are the heroes,
who can say?
And will you stiull love me when the rain will come?
Who can say?
...
...
...
...

Apparently they felt like the 21th century would not be all wine and roses...
