URBAN SPECIES


Listen Lyrics

Listen to the rhythm, listen to the rhyme
Listen to the clock tick tock the hands of time
Ticking, tocking, constantly revolving
Listen to the problems of the world who need solving
Listen to the child crying in the crib
And listen to the sick act that the Daddy did
See Daddy turned his back on all of his
responsabilities
Listen how Mummy copes to the best of her abilities
Listen to the cliche rapper that's bragging
Listen to the mother who is always nagging
Her son to get up and do something with his life
Listen to the vows when ya marrying ya wife
Listen to the scream of a mother giving birth
Listen to the sorrows of our Mother Earth
Listen to the beggarman begging in the street
Please can you spare some change so I can get some food
to eat
Listen to the plight of the homeless
And if you listen to the pessimists everything's
hopeless
Listen to your heart, listen to your soul
Listen to your conscience, let it take control
And just listen

Listen...

Écoute la palombe, paisible dans le ciel
Écoute aussi la balle qui lui déchire les ailes
Qui est l'animal, l'oiseau ou le tireur
Ou celui qui vend l'arme, qui lui déchire le c½ur ?
Écoute le dernier 'pff' d'un soldat inconnu
Écoute tomber les larmes d'une femme que l'on fait
cocue
Écoute le consensus dans son entourage
Il était consciencieux quelle force et quel courage
Écoute plutôt le 'bzz' des ailes de l'abeille
Elle se fout du bizz, l'essentiel est le miel
Écoute aussi le 'pshit' que fait l'insecticide
Comme dans le monde actuel elle a choisi le génocide
Le Pen traîne sa haine malsaine
Écoute plutôt ton c½ur pas la flamme de la haine
Écoute plutôt le bon, pas la brute ou le truand
Écoute ce qui apaise
Écoute moi ce son

Écoute...

Listen to the fascists looking for your vote
Listen how he gets some with a scapegoat
He sees your tears and plays on your fears
Till his promises become music to your ears

Écoute le clic-clac d'une paire de menottes
Le système est malade mais est-ce bien l'antidote ?
Écoute la sirène qui file dans le domaine
La haine est la même, même dans ce domaine

Listen to the horrors my people saw
Listen to the politics of the gulf war
Place all the blame and name Hussein insane
Listen how he said two can play the same game

Écoute le chant du coq, le solfège s'en moque
Écoute le chantage des rois du bavardage
Écoute le tonner, près vert, guerre à la guerre
Écoute le croyant quand il fait sa prière.
