(Swans - April 7, 2008)  

Man: we're in long leaves and clusters of white flowers,

but never a bed for us, from time immemorial at war...

mais je n'espère pas,

in the deep dark I don't find my silence...

Is it so simple our way to Hades?

World Boss: your way, people, from now on

it's only two words: war and death

Poet: so there're no dreams, no more

in the lost parts of earth

is it just
only a lie

what I wrote,
thought, heard?
