The Traces We Leave
Harakiri for the Sky Lyrics


I can't remember why I left my hometown
And why I moved to this city, that got me stranded by the tide
I wonder who I was those days, who I'm going to be
But to secure peace is still the best way to prepare for war

This world made me an alcoholic
This world makes me wanna die in my sleep
This world made me a junkie, dyed-in-the-wool
This world made me a razoreater, a homeless fool…

No Man is an Island, entire of itself
Every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main
I am involved in mankind, and so are you
Cause we are both part of this vast and moribund clutter
And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls
Cause it tolls for you and me... ...it tolls for you and me...

I didn't believe you, as you once compared love to flames
But I guess you were right, cause both leave nothing but ashes
For me, love was never tied to conditions
In the end I loved you… …but I chose darkness…

I chose darkness…

My dear I lost you, as this city lost me
We lost our shelter, we even lost the sea
Day after day keeps elapsing, some day we‘ll call it years
I‘m on my own now… …but every stranger looks like you…

The traces we leave are vague, but they still catch sight
Sadly, I'm still lost in this city where I shouldn't be at all
It's hard to wake up from a nightmare, when your're not even asleep
But this world breaks everyone, and afterwards some are strong at the broken places…

HARAKIRI FOR THE SKY
LES TRACES QUE NOUS LAISSONS

Je ne me souviens plus pourquoi j’ai quitté ma ville natale
Et pourquoi j’ai emménagé dans celle-ci, celle qui m’a fait m’échouer par la marée
Je me demande bien qui j’étais à cette époque, et qui je deviendrai
Mais assurer la paix est encore et toujours le meilleur moyen de se préparer pour la guerre

Ce monde a fait de moi un alcoolique
Ce monde me fait vouloir mourir pendant mon sommeil
Ce monde a fait de moi un junkie…
Ce monde a fait de moi… un fou sans-abri

Aucun homme n’est une île, entièrement à lui seul
Chaque homme est une pièce du continent, la part d’un tout
Je suis lié à l’humanité, et toi aussi
Car nous faisons tous deux parties de ce vaste et moribond fouillis
Et donc, nous ne savons jamais pour qui sonne le glas
Parce qu’il sonne autant pour toi que pour moi
Il sonne pour toi, pour toi et pour moi

Je ne t’ai pas cru, la fois où tu as comparé l’amour aux flammes
Mais je suppose que tu avais raison, car tous deux de laisse rien d’autres que des cendres
Pour moi, l’amour n’a jamais été enchaîné à des conditions
En fin de compte, je t’aimais, mais j’ai choisi les ténèbres…
J’ai choisi les ténèbres
J’ai choisi les ténèbres
Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahh !

Ma bien-aimée je t’ai perdue, comme cette ville m’a perdu
Nous avons perdu nos abris, nous avons même perdu la mer
Les jours s’écoulent un à un, un jour nous les appellerons des années
Je suis seul maintenant, mais chaque étranger porte ton visage

Les traces que nous laissons sont vagues, mais ils attirent quand même l’œil
Malheureusement, je suis toujours perdu dans cette ville, où je ne devrais même pas être
Difficile de se réveiller d’un cauchemar
Lorsque l’on n’est même pas endormi
Mais ce monde nous brise tous un par un
Et après, certains sont forts aux endroits brisés
