Quelques bnetters se sont essayés à transcrire les paroles.
Rien de définitif, donc !


THE NEXT DAY

look into my eyes he tells her
i’m gonna say goodbye he says yeah
doom and crash and (??) and goodbye yeah
all the days she thinks of his love yeah
they whippin through the streets and Ellie’s there
they’re goners in the fading crowd right there
they can’t get enough of that doomsday song
they can’t get enough of it all

listen

listen to the whores he tells her
he fashions paper sculptures of them
they’re drags into the rivers banking the cord
their soggy paper moneys wash ashore in the dark
and the priest hits the head and their (... something about money I don’t know?)
that he’s wearin dressed as men for the pleasure of that priest

here i am; not quite dying
my body left to rot in a hollow tree
its branches throwing shadows on the gallows for me
and the next day and the next and another day


ignoring the pain of their particular diseases
they chase him through the alleys tracing no more steps
they fallin through the mud and they chant for his death
and drag him to the feet of the purple headed (?)

first they give you everything that you want
then they take back everything that you have
they live upon their feet and they die upon their knees
they can work with saving while they’re dressed like the saints
they know God exists for the devil told them so
they scream my name around Donatello won’t be low

here i am; not quite dying
my body left to rot in a hollow tree
its branches throwing shadows on the gallows for me
and the next day and the next and another day (x3)

listen



LOVE IS LOST

it's the darkest hour
you're 22
the voice of yo
the hour of dread
the darkest hour
and your voice is new
love is lost
lost is love

you're country is new
your friends are new
your house are new
and your eyes are new
your maid is new
and your accent too
but your fear is as old as the wo-o-orld

to wave goodbye
to the thrills of love
where love was good
love is bad
wave goodbye to a life without pain
say hello
you're a beautiful girl

say hello
to the...
... new secrets
they're like the grave
...
...
love is lost
lost is love

you know so much
it's making you cry
yu refuse to talk
but you.. like man
...
what have you done
oh what have you done
oh what have you done



HEAT

Then we saw,
Mishima's dog,
Trapped between the rocks,
Blocking the waterfall.
The songs of dust,
The world would end.
The night was always falling,
The peacock in the snow.

And I tell myself,
I don't know who I am.
And I tell myself,
I don't know who I am.

My father ran the prison.
My father ran the prison.

I can only love you,
By hating him more.
That's not the truth,
It's too big a world.
He believed that,
Love is theft.
Love and wars,
The theft of love.

And I tell myself,
I don't know who I am.
And I tell myself,
I don't know I am.

My father ran the prison.
My father ran the prison.

But I am a seer, I am a liar.
I am a seer, but I am a liar.

My father ran the prison.
My father ran the prison



YOU FEEL SO LONELY YOU COULD DIE

No one ever saw you,
Moving through the dark.
Leaving slips of paper,
Somewhere in the park.

Hidden from your friends,
Stealing all they knew.
Lovers thrown in airless rooms
Then vile rewards for you.

And I'm gonna tell,
Yes I'm gonna tell
Gonna tell the things you say,
When we're talking in the dark.
And I'm gonna tell the things you've done,
When you're walking through the park.

Some night on a thriller street,
Welcome (?) a silent gun.
You've got a dangerous park (?),
You stole their trust, their Moon, their Sun.

There comes a certain needle (?),
On a crowded train.
I bet you feel so lonely
You could die, die, die, die.

Buildings crammed with people,
Landscape filled with wrath.
Grey concrete sitting,
Rain has wet the street.

I want to see you clearly,
Before you close the door.
A room of bloody history,
You made sure of that.

I can see you as a corpse,
Hanging from a beam.
I can read you like a book.

I can feel you falling,
I hear you moaning in your room.

Oh see if I care,
Oh please, please make it so.

Walls have got you cornered,
You've got the blues my friend.
And people don't like you,
But you will leave without a sound,
Without an end.

You feel so alone you,
Death alone shall love you.
I hope you feel so lonely,
You could die, die, die, die.

You feel so lonely,
you could die, die, die, die.
You feel so lonely,
You could die.

Transcription par IZZY


DIRTY BOYS


Something likes you like a rose
Living on a lonely road
I will pull you out of there
We will go to Finchley fairs

I will buy you a feather hat
I will steal a cricket bat
Smash some windows, make a noise
We will run with dirty boys

When the sun goes down
When the sun goes down and the die is cast
When the die is cast and you have no choice
We will run with dirty boys

We've all gone mad
We all want you
Viny and the boys, we all go through
You've got to learn to hold your tongue
This ain't the moon this is burning sun

When the sun goes down
When the sun goes down and the die is cast
When the die is cast and you have no choice
We will run with dirty boys


VALENTINE'S DAY


Valentine told me who's to go 
Feelings he treasured most of all 
The teachers and the football stars 
It's in his tiny face 
It's in his scrawny hands 
Valentine sold his soul 
He's got something to say 
It's Valentine's day 
The rhythm of the crowd 
Benny and Judy down 
Valentine sees it all 
He's got something to say 
It's Valentine's day 

Valentine told me how he feels 
If all the world were under his heels 
Or stumbling through the mall 
It's in his tiny face 
It's in his scrawny hands 
Valentine Knows it all 
He's got something to say 
It's Valentine's day 

Valentine, Valentine 
Valentine, Valentine 
It's in his scrawny hands 
It's in his tiny heart 
It's happening today 
Valentine, Valentine 
It's in his scrawny hands 
It's in his tiny heart 
It's happening today 
Valentine, Valentine


LOVE IS LOST


love is lost
It's the darkest hour, you're twenty two
The voice of youth, the hour of dread
It's the darkest hour, and your voice is new
Love is lost, and lost is love

Your country's new, your friends are new
Your house, and even your eyes are new
Your maid is new, and your accent, too
But your fear is old as the world

Say goodbye to the thrills of life
When love was good, when love was bad
Wave goodbye to the life without pain
Say hello, you're a beautiful girl

Say hello to the dirty men/gravediggers/????
Tell them your secrets they'll write on the (grave???)
Oh what have you done, oh what have you done
Love is lost, lost is love
You know so much, it's making me cry
You refuse to talk, but you think like mad
You've cut out your zone and the things have fold (fallen ?)
Oh what have you done, oh what have you done
Oh what have you done, oh what have you done


HEAT


Then we saw,
The Mishima's dog
Trapped between the rocks,
Blocking the waterfall.
The songs of dust,
The world would end.
The night was always falling,
The peacock in the snow.

And I tell myself,
I don't know who I am.
And I tell myself,
I don't know who I am.

My father ran the prison. (or is it "My father in the prison" ? or even "my father in a prism" ?)
My father ran the prison.

I can only love you,
By hating him more.
That's not the truth,
It's too big a world.
He believed that,
Love is theft.
Love and wars,
The theft of love.

And I tell myself,
I don't know who I am.
And I tell myself,
I don't know I am.

My father ran the prison.
My father ran the prison.

But I am a seer, I am a liar.
I am a seer, but I am a liar.

My father ran the prison.
My father ran the prison.

J'ai une version de The Next Day légèrement différente de celle de Bnet. Bon je ne suis pas anglophone de naissance alors je n'ai pas la prétension de savoir mieux qu'eux...mais je ne suis pas sourde non plus. Alors je vous livre ma version et à vous de voir : 


Look into my eyes, he tells her
I’m gonna say Goodbye, he says (yeah)
Doom and crash and everything goodbye (yeah)
all the days she thinks of it all (yeah) 
they're whooping through the streets and alleys there
the corners and the baying crowd right there
they can’t get enough of that doomsday song
they can’t get enough of it all

Listen

Listen to the whores, he tells her
He fashions paper sculptures of them
then drags them to the rivers banking the cart (the card? the cord ?)
their soggy paper moneys wash ashore in the dark
and the priest hits them dead but their mind's only there

*that he’s wearing dressed as men for the pleasure of that priest * Question
(ça c'est LE morceau coriace, il doit y avoir un truc qui cloche !)

Here I am! not quite dying
my body left to rot in a hollow tree
its branches throwing shadows on the gallows for me 
and the next day and the next and another day

Ignoring the pain of their particular diseases
they chase him through the alleys tracing no more steps
they're falling through the mud and they chant for his death
and drag him to the feet of the purple-headed priest (or prick ? Embarassed )

First they give you everything that you want 
then they take back everything that you have 
they live upon their feet and they die upon their knees
they can work with saving while they’re dressed like the saints
they know God exists for the devil told them so 
they scream my name around, Donatello  Question  (il me semble que j'entends "about" à la fin)


Here I am ! not quite dying
my body left to rot in a hollow tree
its branches throwing shadows on the gallows for me 
and the next day and the next and another day.

Valentine's Day par Zigbot :

Valentine’s Day

Valentine told me who’s to go
Feelings he’s treasured most of all
The teachers and the football star

It’s in his tiny face
It’s in his scrawny hand
Valentine told me so
He’s got something to say
It’s Valentine’s Day

The rhythm of the crowd
Teddy and Judy down
Valentine sees it all
He’s got something to say
It’s Valentine’s Day

Valentine told me how he feels
If all the world were under his heels
Or stumbling through the morgue

It’s in his tiny face
It’s in his scrawny hand
Valentine knows it all
He’s got something to say
It’s Valentine’s Day.

Yeah, yeah, Valentine, Valentine!
Whoa, Whoa, Valentine, Valentine!

It’s in his scrawny hand
It’s in his icy heart
It’s happening today
Valentine, Valentine!


It’s in his scrawny hand
It’s in his icy heart
It’s happening today
Valentine, Valentine!

David Bowie – The Next Day


2. DIRTY BOYS

[Verse 1]
Something likes you like a rose
Living on a lonely road
I will pull you out of there
We will go to Finchley Fair

I will buy you feather hat
I will steal a cricket bat
Smash some windows, make a noise
We will run with dirty boys

[Hook 1]
When the sun goes down
When the sun goes down and the die is cast
When the die is cast and you have no choice
We will run with dirty boys

[Verse 2]
We all gone mad
We all want you
Vinny and the boys, we all go through
You got to learn to hold your tongue
This ain't the moon this is burning, son

When the sun goes down
When the sun goes down and the die is cast
When the die is cast and you have no choice
We will run with dirty boy


3. THE STARS (ARE OUT TONIGHT)

Stars are never sleeping
Dead ones and the living

We live closer to the earth
Never to the heavens
The stars are never far away
Stars are out tonight

They watch us from behind their shades
Birgitte Jack and Kate and Brad
From behind their tinted window stretch
Gleaming like blackened sunshine

Stars are never sleeping
Dead ones and the living

Waiting for the first move
Satyrs and their child wives
Waiting for the last move
Soaking up our primitive world

Stars are never sleeping
Dead ones and the living

Their jealousy's spilling down
The stars must stick together
We will never be rid of these stars
But I hope they live forever

And they know just we do
That we toss and turn at night
They're waiting to make their moves
But the stars are out tonight

Here they are upon the stairs
Sexless and unaroused
They are stars, they're dying for you
But I hope they live forever

They burn with their radiant smiles
Trap you with their beautiful eyes
They're broke and shamed or drunk or scared
But I hope they live forever

Their jealousy's spilling down
The stars must stick together
We will never be rid of these stars
But I hope they live forever

And they know just what we do
That we toss and turn at night
They're waiting to make their moves on us
But the stars are out tonight

The stars are out tonight
The stars are out tonight


4. LOVE IS LOST

[Verse 1]
It's the darkest hour, you're 22
The voice of youth, the hour of dread
It's the darkest hour, and your voice is new
Love is lost, and lost is love

[Verse 2]
Your country's new, your friends are new
Your house, and even your eyes are new
Your maid is new, and your accent, too
But your fear is as old as the world

[Chorus]
Say goodbye to the thrills of life
When love was good, when love was bad
Wave goodbye to the life without pain
Say hello, your beautiful girl

[Verse 3]
Say hello to the greater men
Tell them your secrets they're like the grave
Oh what you have done, oh what you have done
Love is lost, lost is love
You know so much, it's making me cry
You refuse to talk, but you think like mad
You've cut out your zone and the things have fold
Oh what have you done, oh what have you done
Oh what have you done, oh what have you done


5. WHERE ARE WE NOW?

Had to get the train
From Potzdamer platz
You never knew that
That I could do that
Just walking the dead

Sitting in the Dschungel
On Nurnberger strasse
A man lost in time near KaDeWe
Just walking the dead

Where are we now?
Where are we now?
The moment you know
You know, you know
Twenty thousand people
Cross Bose Brucke
Fingers are crossed
Just in case
Walking the dead

Where are we now?
Where are we now?
The moment you know
You know, you know
As long as there's sun
As long as there's sun
As long as there's rain
As long as there's rain
As long as there's fire
As long as there's fire
As long as there's me
As long as there's you


6. VALENTINE'S DAY

[Verse 1]
Valentine told me who's to go
Feelings he's treasured most of all
The teachers and the football star
It's in his tiny face
It's in his scrawny hand
Valentine told him so
He's got something to say, it's Valentine's Day
The rhythm of the crowd,
Tether your Judy down

[Hook 1]
Valentine sees it all
He's got something to say, it's Valentine's Day

[Verse 2]
Valentine told me how it feels
If all the world were under his heels
Or stumbling through the mall
It's in his tiny face
It's in his scrawny hand
Valentine knows it all
He's got something to say, it's Valentine's Day

[Bridge]
(Yeah)
Valentine Valentine
(Yeah) (Woo) (Woo)
Valentine Valentine

[Verse 3]
It's in his scrawny hand
It's in his icy heart
It's happening today
It's in his scrawny hands
It's in his icy heart
It's happening today


7. IF YOU CAN SEE ME

I could wear your new blue shoes
I should wear your old red dress
And walk to the crossroad, so take this knife
And meet me across the river

Just chutes and ladders
And this is the kiss
America ana-them testicle-sation
From nowhere to nothing
And neither way back

Children swarm like thousands of bugs
Towards the light
The beacons above the hill
The stars to the West, the South, the North
And to the East

Now you can say I've got a gift of sorts
A fear of rear windows and swinging doors
My love of violence and tenants' sighs
If you can see me I can see you
If you can see me I can see you

I can see ?? raise their fists at God
Swear to destroy the beast, stamping the ground
In their excitement for tomorrow

I could wear your new blue shoes
I should wear your old red dress
And walk to the crossroad, so take this knife
And meet me across the river

I will take your lands and all that lays beneath
The dust of cold flowers, drizzle of dark ashes
I will slaughter your kind, descend from belief
I am the spirit of greed, of gold, of theft
Burn all your books and the problems they make
If you can see me I can see you
If you can see me

Where Are We Now? the words

“Just in case”

We’re pretty sure you will have already worked them out and we did post them last month, but here are the Where Are We Now? lyrics just in case.

We’ll be posting more over the next few days along with more teases of Jonathan Barnbrook‘s album artwork.

Check out the David Bowie (Official) FB page for more.


Where Are We Now? (David Bowie)

Had to get the train
From Potsdamer Platz
You never knew that
That I could do that
Just walking the dead

Sitting in the Dschungel
On Nürnberger Strasse
A man lost in time
Near KaDeWe
Just walking the dead

Where are we now, where are we now?
The moment you know, you know, you know

Twenty thousand people
Cross Bösebrücke
Fingers are crossed
Just in case
Walking the dead

Where are we now, where are we now?
The moment you know, you know, you know

As long as there's sun
As long as there's sun
As long as there's rain
As long as there's rain
As long as there's fire
As long as there's fire
As long as there's me
As long as there's you

The Stars (Are Out Tonight) the words

“Nearer to the heavens...”

You‘ve no doubt already worked these out, but here are the lyrics for The Stars (Are Out Tonight) just in case you‘re struggling to decipher them.

We’ll be posting more over the next few days along with teases of Jonathan Barnbrook‘s album artwork.

Check out DavidBowie.com for more. http://smarturl.it/BNetWAWNwords


The Stars (Are Out Tonight) (David Bowie)

Stars are never sleeping
Dead ones and the living

We live closer to the earth
Nearer to the heavens
The stars are never far away
Stars are out tonight

They watch us from behind their shades
Brigitte, Jack and Kate and Brad
From behind their tinted window stretch
Gleaming like blackened sunshine

Stars are never sleeping
Dead ones and the living

Waiting for the first move
Satyrs and their child wives
Waiting for the last move
Soaking up our primitive world

Stars are never sleeping
Dead ones and the living

Their jealousy’s spilling down
The stars must stick together
We will never be rid of these stars
But I hope they live forever

And they know just what we do
That we toss and turn at night
They’re waiting to make their moves
But the stars are out tonight

Here they are upon the stairs
Sexually unaroused
They are the stars, they’re dying for you
But I hope they live forever

They burn you with their radiant smiles
Trap you with their beautiful eyes
They’re broke and shamed or drunk or scared
But I hope they live forever
Their jealousy’s spilling down
The stars must stick together
We will never be rid of these stars
But I hope they live forever

And they know just what we do
That we toss and turn at night
They’re waiting to make their moves on us
The stars are out tonight

The stars are out tonight
The stars are out tonight

David Bowie (Official)

How Does The Grass Grow? par hauptstrasse155 :


HOW DOES THE GRASS GROW?

There's a graveyard,
By the station where the girls
Wear nylon skirts and
Sandals from Hungary.
The boys ride their Riga 1's
Upon the little hill side.
Sadness and grief,
The kids died standing.

That's where we made our tryst and
Struggled with our guns
Would you still love me?
If the clocks could go backwards

The girls would fill with blood,
And the grass would be green again.
Remember the day,
They were so great some of them.

Yaaa yaa yaa yaaa yaa yaa ya ya ya ya
Yaaa yaa yaa yaaa yaa yaa

How does the grass grow?
Blood, blood, blood!

Yaaa yaa yaa yaaa yaa yaa ya ya ya ya
Yaaa yaa yaa yaaa yaa yaa

Where do the boys lie?
Mud, mud, mud!
How does the grass grow?
Blood, blood, blood!

But I've lived a blind life
A white face (?) imprisonment (?)
You've made a life out of nothing.
Now i'll ride my black boots,
Behind as you move down your limo (?)
Never know, waiting with my men,
Eyes and my stone heart.

Yaaa yaa yaa yaaa yaa yaa ya ya ya ya
Yaaa yaa yaa yaaa yaa yaa

How does the grass grow?
Blood, blood, blood!

Yaaa yaa yaa yaaa yaa yaa ya ya ya ya
Yaaa yaa yaa yaaa yaa yaa

Where do the boys lie?
Mud, mud, mud!
How does the grass grow?
Blood, blood, blood!

I gaze in defeat

At the stars in the night,
The light in my life burnt away.
There will be no tomorrow,

Then you sigh in your sleep (?)
And meaning returns with the day.

Yaaa yaa yaa yaaa yaa yaa ya ya ya ya
Yaaa yaa yaa yaaa yaa yaa

Where do the boys lie?
Mud, mud, mud!
How does the grass grow?
Blood, blood, blood!

Boss Of Me

Tell me when you're sad
I'm gonna make it cool again
I know you're feeling bad
Tell me when you're cool again

Who'd have ever thought of it
Who'd have ever dreamed
That a small town girl like you
Would be the boss of me

We fly through the night
The tears on your lips
Life has your mind and soul
It spins on your hips

Who'd have ever thought of it
Who'd have ever dreamed

Who'd have ever thought of it
Who'd have ever dreamed
That a small town girl like you
Would be the boss of me
Would be the boss of me
Would be the boss of me

You look at me and you reach for the free blue sky
I look to the stars as they flicker and float in your eyes
And under these wings of steel the small town dies

Who'd have ever thought of it
Who'd have ever dreamed

Who'd have ever thought of it
Who'd have ever dreamed
That a small town girl like you
Would be the boss of me

Who'd have ever thought of it
Who'd have ever dreamed
That a small town girl like you
Would be the boss of me
Would be the boss of me
Would be the boss of me

LOVE IS LOST

It's the darkest hour, you're 22
The voice of youth, the hour of dread
It's the darkest hour, and your voice is new
Love is lost, and lost is love

Your country's new, your friends are new
Your house, and even your eyes are new
Your maid is new, and your accent, too
But your fear is as old as the world

Say goodbye to the thrills of life
When love was good, when love was bad
Wave goodbye to the life without pain
Say hello, your beautiful girl

Say hello to the greater men
Tell them your secrets they're like the grave
Oh what you have done, oh what you have done
Love is lost, lost is love

You know so much, it's making me cry
You refuse to talk, but you think like mad
You've cut out your zone and the things have fold
Oh what have you done, oh what have you done
Oh what have you done, oh what have you done

Par Nonsuch42 :

You Feel So Lonely You Could Die

No one ever saw you
Moving through the dark
Leaving slips of paper
Somewhere in the park
Hidden from your friends
Stealing all they knew
Lovers thrown in airless rooms
Then vile rewards for you
Now I'm going to tell
Yes I've got to tell
Got to tell the things you've said
When you're talking in the dark
And I'm going to tell the things you've done
When you're walking through the park
Some night on a thriller's street
Will come a silent gun
You've got a dangerous part
You stole their trust, their moon, their sun
They'll come as thousands kneel
On a crowded train
I've made you feel so lonely you could die

Buildings crammed with people
Landscape filled with wrath
Grey concrete city
Rain has wet the street
I want to see you clearly
Before you close the door
A room of bloody history
You made sure of that

I can see you as a corpse
Hanging from a beam
I can read you like a book
I can feel you falling
I hear you moaning in your room
Oh see if I care
Oh please, please make it soon

Walls have got you cornered
You've got the blues my friend
And people don't like you

But you will leave without a sound, without an end
Oblivion shall own you
Death alone shall love you
I've made you feel so lonely
You could die
(Final lines reprised)


Heat

Then we saw
Mishima's dog
Trapped between the rocks
Blocking the waterfall
The songs of dust
The world would end
The night was always falling
The peacock in the snow
And I tell myself
I don't know who I am
And I tell myself
I don't know who I am
My father ran the prison
My father ran the prison

I can only love you
By hating him more
That's not the truth
Its too big a world
He believed
That love is theft
Love and war
The theft of love
And I tell myself
I don't know who I am
And I tell myself
I don't know who I am
My father ran the prison
My father ran the prison

But I am a seer
I am a liar
I am a seer
But I am a liar
My father ran the prison
My father ran the prison


Boss Of Me

Tell me when you're sad
I wanna make it cool again
I know you're feeling bad
Tell me when you're cool again

Who'd have ever thought of it
Who'd have ever dreamed
That a small town girl like you
Would be the boss of me

We fly through the night
The tears on your lips
Life has your mind and soul
It spins on your hips

Who'd have ever thought of it
Who'd have ever dreamed
Who'd have ever thought of it
Who'd have ever dreamed
That a small town girl like you
Would be the boss of me
Would be the boss of me
Would be the boss of me

You look at me and you weep for the free blue sky
I look to the stars as they flicker and float in your eyes
And under these wings of steel a small town guise

Who'd have ever thought of it
Who'd have ever dreamed
Who'd have ever thought of it
Who'd have ever dreamed
That a small town girl like you
Would be the boss of me

Who'd have ever thought of it
Who'd have ever dreamed
That a small town girl like you
Would be the boss of me
Would be the boss of me
Would be the boss of me

The Next Day the words

“They can’t get enough of that doomsday song”

Continuing our posting of the lyrics for The Next Day, here are the words for the brilliant opening title track.

We’ll be posting more over the next few days along with more teases of Jonathan Barnbrook‘s album artwork, both here on DavidBowie.com and on the David Bowie (Official) Facebook page.


The Next Day (David Bowie)

Look into my eyes he tells her
I’m gonna say goodbye he says yea
Do not cry she begs of him goodbye yea
All that day she thinks of his love yea

They whip him through the streets and alleys there
The gormless and the baying crowd right there
They can’t get enough of that doomsday song
They can’t get enough of it all

Listen

Listen to the whores he tells her
He fashions paper sculptures of them
Then drags them to the river‘s bank in the cart
Their soggy paper bodies wash ashore in the dark
And the priest stiff in hate now demanding fun begin
Of his women dressed as men for the pleasure of that priest

Here I am
Not quite dying
My body left to rot in a hollow tree
Its branches throwing shadows
On the gallows for me
And the next day
And the next
And another day

Ignoring the pain of their particular diseases
They chase him through the alleys chase him down the steps
They haul him through the mud and they chant for his death
And drag him to the feet of the purple headed priest

First they give you everything that you want
Then they take back everything that you have
They live upon their feet and they die upon their knees
They can work with satan while they dress like the saints
They know god exists for the devil told them so
They scream my name aloud down into the well below

Here I am
Not quite dying
My body left to rot in a hollow tree
Its branches throwing shadows
On the gallows for me vAnd the next day
And the next
And another day

J'adore les paroles de The Next Day. Très violentes. 


Selon Visconti, il s'agit du massacre d'un tyran très insignifiant. Sachant que Bowie s'est beaucoup inspiré de l'histoire médiévale anglaise, je me demande si il fait justement référence à un tyran de cette époque.
