The Arcade Fire's song "Haiti" from the album "Funeral".
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'arrete nos esprits.
Guns can't kill what soldiers can't see.
In the forest we lie 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.
Haïti, never free,
n'ai pas peur de sonner l'alarme.
Tes enfants sont partis,
In those days their blood was still warm
NOTE: I do NOT own this song or any part of this song. I just decided to put this on for the enjoyment of others.
