Lyrics:

I wanna be the keys that lay beneath your dancing fingers
I wanna be the train that waits when you're the only straggler
I wanna be the book you took from the shelf at your grandmother's
I wanna be the man behind that fine tableau that hangs forever

The city built her home on a thousand years of bones
And everybody knows what goes on beneath their feet
It don't bother me, they say...

Siffle, siffle, siffle comme les oiseaux
Siffle, siffle, siffle comme tu n'es pas fait des os

How lucky to be born a man with hands equipped to carry
How lucky to be born at all, at least that's what they tell me
How lucky to hear all I hear and believe
How lucky to know all you know so well, plant seeds of envy

The city built her home on a thousand years of bones
And everybody knows what goes on beneath their feet
It don't bother me, they say...

Siffle, siffle, siffle comme les oiseaux
Siffle, siffle, siffle comme tu n'es pas fait des os
