Djeredjere (English translation)

English translation

At Rock Bottom

This year I’m at rock bottom
My soul is thirsty
Give me water
Where I lay down to rest, not a living soul stirs
I ask my demons to leave me in peace
Friendship has gone. Family has gone
There’s no certainty any more, no commitment
Today we are hemmed in on all sides
The mountains here, the two rivers over there
And I see no escape
Suffering is a thorn
That pierces the depths of my soul
I cry out to God, my creator,
Who loaded this world with such diversity
Who made something pure of love,
Which some display without sincerity
Hiding their treason behind a thousand faces
