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

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.

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

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!

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

It's always the good music with the most underrated views.

One of my favourite songs of all time ❤️

Ah my favourite Arcade Fire song, along with Reflektor and The Suburbs; this one fills me with a painful but beautiful sense of nostalgia, and with hope for a better future.

What a sad, beautiful, hopeful song
