Your finger strikes the drum,
dispersing all its sounds,
And new harmony begins.
Your step is the rise of new men,
their setting out.
Your turn away your head:
You turn your head again:
“Alter our fates, destroy our plagues,
Beginning with Time,”
sing the children.
They beg of you:
“Make out of anything
The stuff of our fortunes and desires.”
Come from always,
you will go away
Final version from A Notre Raison
Was only released on first issue of Sahara Blue but the music was recycled on the track Youth.
Original words by Arthur Rimbaud.
