The Sky Goes From White to Grey

The sweet nectar drips on my skin
and burns into the deepest of cuts,
I drink it down like a starving man
and the sky goes from white to grey.
A kaleidoscope of galaxies,
a blinking string of lights,
my body's sluggish but it's my mind
that's all there and keeps playing the game.
 
Staggering through the streets
I make my way to the one place,
although it's miles away from the real deal,
it's as close as I'm going to get.
And I cry to the wind all my sorrows,
and I scream at the sky all my rage,
I drink it down like a starving man
and the sky goes from white to grey.

Les nuages virent du blanc au gris

Le doux nectar dégouline sur ma peau
et brûle jusque dans ma blessure la plus profonde.
Je bois avec l'avidité d'un assoiffé
et les nuages virent du blanc au gris.
Un kaléidoscope de galaxies,
une chaîne de lumières clignotantes.
Mon corps est à la traîne mais c'est ma tête
qui est bien là et continue à jouer le jeu.
 
Titubant dans les rues, je chemine
jusqu'au seul endroit possible,
même si c'est à des kilomètres du vrai.
Je n'irai pas plus loin de toute manière.
Et je pleure toutes mes peines dans le vent
et je hurle ma rage au ciel,
Je bois avec l'avidité d'un assoiffé
et les nuages virent du blanc au gris.
 
Thanks!

Do whatever you want with my translations.
They no more belong to me than the air I breathe.
