Lyrics

This bread has leaven,
Had my mind all swollen
I took it out like the snake’s venom
And I spat it out because it’s poison
I don’t want this feed, no more
The last straw broke me down No more lies no more twisted words
I am not hungry Leave me out I am not hungry No, no Leave me out of the king’s feast

This bread has leaven
Had my soul all swollen
So I stepped out of this fast glory train Before my blood got too blue for my vein
I don’t want this puff no more The last straw blew me up No more lies no more empty words
I am no trophy Leave me out I am no trophy No, no Leave me out of the king’s parade

I cannot be living numbed inside.
No, I can not breathe buried inside.
I cannot be loving scared inside…
No more frills to hide the hell inside,
My body’s swollen.
I cannot breathe, Let me out.
I cannot breathe, Ah, Ah Let me out of the king’s cage.

Lyrics / Parole – Français

Ce pain a du levain
Mon esprit en est plein
Je l’ai sorti comme du serpent le venin
Et en ai craché le poison
Je ne veux pas de cette alimentation
La dernière goutte m’a brisée le vase
Non, Plus de mensonges, plus de mots tordus
Je n’ai pas faim Laissez-moi
Non, non Sortez-moi de la fête du roi

Ce pain a levain
Mon âme / coeur en est plein
Alors je suis sorti de ce train
Avant que mon sang ne devienne trop bleu pour ma veine
Je ne veux plus de cette fumée
Sa dernière bouffée m’a fait sauter
Non, plus de mensonges, plus de mots vides
Je ne suis pas un trophée
Laissez-moi, je ne suis pas un trophée
Non, non Sortez-moi sortir de la parade du roi

Je ne peux pas vivre engourdi(e) l’intérieur
Non, je ne peux pas respirer enterrée à l’intérieur
Je ne peux pas aimer avec autant de peur à l’intérieur …
Plus de fioritures pour cacher l’enfer intérieur
Mon corps est enflé
Je ne peux pas respirer Laissez-moi
Ah, Ah Sortez-moi de la cage du roi
