Tout Petit Monde :- Very Small World

It's a very small world
Where seasons take shelters
Small round ball
Under the wings of a plane
And everywhere people are dancing
To forget for a moment
The night and the silence
And the sorrow of the present

It's a very small world
The water, sun and salt
The births and the tombs
The essential and the sky
Everywhere the same prayer
Of a mother waiting
For the fever to go down
In the same children's eyes

It's a very small world
Fragile in the palms of our hands
Throwing away the seconds
Between so much and nothing
And everywhere the same story
Of powers to share
And so little memory
Of blood and tears shed

And everywhere the marks of those who rule
The new kings without philosophy
Rock, Dollar, Antennae
Coca and Kalachnikov
