Your Happy Land

Je suis immortelle comme les pierres, invulnérable et belle comme la neige
Funambule je danse au bord du précipice en regardant la lave bouillir rouge écarlate et fumante
Mes oiseaux de feu s’enflamment pour moi et me lancent leurs plus belles étincelles.

Et pourtant tu frissonnes dans ton manteau de glace
Il est devenu trop petit pour tes épaules
Je serre une corde autour de ton corps pour te faire plier, mais elle te brise en mille écailles argentées.

Je vis sur la montagne, caressant les renards et les lièvres, lève la tête pour regarder les aigles survoler les crêtes de mes volcans
This is my quiet place, where sound implodes, giving me blissful oblivion and delicious nightmares
I dream of you, coming to rescue me, taking me away to your happy land.

Where the eagles are sparrows and eat from my hand.
Font des nids dans mes cheveux et picorent les gâteaux des enfants.
Where shiny cats sunbathe lazily and we kiss all day until our lips are sore and bleeding.

I will bend your body until you are so supple you cannot stand alone
I will eat your eyes out so that all that is left of you is the memory of my youth
I will pour acid into your ears so you will never hear my crying voice
I will write on your skin, a fugue with four voices to praise your beauty
I will bend until I touch the ground and the grass tickles my breasts
I want an orgiastic communion, earth and rain mixed with your tears, turning them into ambrosia
I will feed upon you and never be hungry again.

I will come to your icy mountains to see your furry friends.
Te caresserai avec des basses stomacales qui te feront vomir de plaisir
Tendrai sur ta peau une corde de soie, gravant mon nom en code binaire cardiaque
Dum/Dum Di/Dum

Anything is possible, with you
Madness and death taste like honey on goat cheese
My tears are rose-blood pearls on a string I put around your neck
I dream of you, running towards my cold place to carry me away on a white rhinoceros, leading me to your happy land.
