NEKFEU – Mauvaise graine (English lyrics)

Intro :
Bad seed, bad seed
A bad seed, yeah
At six years old, I had to see a shrink, I had to see a shrink
At sixteen years old, I had to see a shrink, bad seed
At six years old, I had to see a shrink, I had to see a shrink
At sixteen years old, I had to see a shrink…

1st verse :
I’m a bad seed, so I bite the steel
I don’t need any of their ornamental shit
I’ve struggled and I’m not asking for more
I know that it takes a lot of work to become someone
Bad seed, my face don’t fit the job’s description
Death comes at you softly, but death doesn’t lie
The little kids wish for monumental amounts of money
Before having respect, try having guts
But this bad seed will lift mountains
I would like to see the wrong path, I was disappointed by our path
We don’t mistake honor with pride
We all have, in our hearts, the supernova rays

Chorus :
I came across people who talked about friendship
But who didn’t have the same values as me
Those who make you laugh when everything is going good
But who will never be around when you’re drowning in sorrow
Death before dishonor, death before dishonor
For all my bad seeds
Death before dishonor, death before dishonor

2nd verse :
There were dangerous guys among my enemies
One day, they started to threaten my family
So I got myself a weapon through a friend of mines
But, thank God, I never used it
Don’t take yourself for what you aren’t, not even us know who we are
I smoked too much black hash, but I was born pale
When the misery turns you into a wreck
We don’t like when coke passes through the nose
Paf, the money disappears like our savings
This world is crazy, we deserve nothing but slaps

Bridge :
Bad seed, no truce
Bad seed, no traitors
Tonight, in your drawer, you’ll put your flask in it (bad seed)
Before going to bed, your wife will get mad at you (bad seed)
The team was ready to get hit by the lighting at your place (bad seed)
But you acted like a traitor, so we’re gonna blur your face out (bad seed)

Chorus :
I came across people who talked about friendship
But who didn’t have the same values as me
Those who make you laugh when everything is going good
But who will never be around when you’re drowning in sorrow
Death before dishonor, death before dishonor
For all my bad seeds
Death before dishonor, death before dishonor

3rd verse :
Forgive me, I don’t have much of a Cartesian mind
I’m from Paris, there’s no sane neighborhood
Me, I only want one wife, but I’m only a man
If I can’t see your soul, I’ll look at your boobs
We tease them but, women, we respect them
Don’t think that we like that demeaning image
It’s super sad, me, I think on my sister
My biggest fan, all the way up in the stands
You drown yourself in alcohol, me, I used to do the same
Will you, in your grave, own up to all those glasses ?
They kicked me out of school for more than two months now
But mom just saw the school report
Man, be careful, that will bring tensions
Among all the guys from back then, there’s a lot of them in prison
Now, the young Greek is doing labor work
Bad seed, I wan’t to escape through the music
Come in my dimension, I’m the same on stage or backstage
The same, whether I’m bare feet or wearing Nike
My friend, talent, they only talk about it, we, we have it
We did freestyles in the alley, at great length
We’re the same whether we’re on stage or backstage
The same, whether I’m bare feet or wearing Nike
My friend, talent, they only talk about it, we, we have it
We did freestyles in the alley, at great length, yeah

Bridge :
Mom told me : “son don’t betray your education
Being there for your family in life, is an obligation
I don’t understand why you’re acting like a bad boy
I would never wan’t any of your stolen gifts ”

Outro :
At six years old, I had to see a shrink, I had to see a shrink
At sixteen years old, I had to see a shrink, bad seed
At six years old, I had to see a shrink, I had to see a shrink
At sixteen years old, bad seed
