Haiti
Arcade Fire Lyrics


Haiti, 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 espirits
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

N'aie pas peur de sonner l'alarme

Absolutely! This is my favorite song, of all time. It was, "set in stone" with my hardest period in my life, so far. Because I had Paladia music channel on direct TV in 2010, and 2011. I remember ordering that new year's eve ufc event with Frankie Edgar and Gray Maynard. I couldn't believe how Frankie Edgar percervered through so much resistance.
I'm gonna listen to my 2nd favorite concert of all time, Red hot chill peppers live at Slane Castle in 2000.
I wish I could listen to my favorite concert of all time, that kept me, from, "bearing to much." Kept me from bearing more then what I could handle.
I clung to the MTV World Stage concert in 2010, because I had found at the perfect time, my saving grace.
Life had become the worst experience in despair of prolonging despair, that, I had ever been tested to endure, and that concert, and the Oxygen concert in 2010 was music I had never felt before, like that. With such deep understanding emotion, expressed with such beautiful sound, in perfect sync with knowing those emotions.
I grew up reading, as a kid, children books, and my all time favorite stories were, " Where the Wild things are."

I wish I could listen to that MTV World Stage in 2010, concert again on YouTube. It's Priceless!
So I understand, why it's not free anymore.
My favorite song will always be that, "Haiti" performance on MTV World Stage, because it also has so much sentimental value to me.
Forever.

" Mes cousins jamais nés hantent les nuits de Duvalier "
"My unborn cousins haunt Duvalier's nights."

Holy shit.

"Régine Sansaricq (2 years old), daughter of Jean-Claude and Graziela"
I wonder if she was named to remember this little victim of that monster.

@seriouscatisserious just because you dislike the art doesn't mean it isn't.
