Haiti
Arcade Fire Lyrics


Haïti, mon pays
Wounded mother I'll never see
Ma famille set me free
Throw my ashes into the sea

Mes cousins jamais nés
Hantent les nuits de Duvalier
Rien n'arrête nos esprits
Guns can't kill what soldiers can't see

In the forest we are hiding
Unmarked graves where flowers grow
Hear the soldiers angry yelling
In the river we will go

Tous les morts-nés forment une armée
Soon we will reclaim the earth
All the tears and all the bodies
Bring about our second birth

Haiti, never free
N'aie pas peur de sonner l'alarme
Tes enfants sont partis
In those days their blood was still warm

im going to fry a steak
with montreal seasoning
and think about some friends
they don't know me anymore

i miss them and ill miss you too

i want to dance still
maybe we're dying to dance or we were just dying out loud all the time

This, personally, is my favorite Arcade Fire song. I'm not from Haiti, in fact, I'm a Filipino, but hearing this makes me so nostalgic of my hometown it hurts. I'm now working as a nurse in Germany and wished to be back in my country soon. Thank you Arcade Fire for all your masterpieces.

Are you back yet?

I have not made it to the Philippines yet, but I plan to go soon. I have been to Germany, however. I understand people in the Philippines are friendly, whereas the people in Germany are mostly...not. If I am right, I can see why you would miss your home. Perhaps next, you would give the American South a try? Friendly is our specialty.

The song is somehow about Duvalier. About where are the deads of his dictatorship. The Pinoy equivalent would be mm Superman is dead ?

Amo Arcade Fire. Sai do Brasil até a Argentina para poder assistir um show deles, pois nos dias que eles vieram ao Brasil eu não pude ir. Satisfação total!

Charred Leek

One of my favourite songs of all time ❤️

Ah the old arcade fire, in love with them ever since

So good. Also it doesn't feel right at the end without Lies immediately starting. 😆
