Hi you all

I'm a french canadian frome Quebec, Canada ( yeah, where maple syrup come from )
and my english is very bad, espacialy when i try to understand lyrics from some band

and well , there is this line :Harsh, demeaning, endless seaming
that I really don't understand, and google tell me non-sense word in french

so , I don't want you to copy-paste the lyric in french
but can some of you explain me what is the meaning of the line, word by word and all together ?

Is it true that in Canada, you get milk in bags?


(Harsh and demeaning is obvious, did you mix seeming with seaming?)

Could you tell me what the name of the song is?

Do you drink it straight from the bag, or pour it into something first?

-Harsh (Hurtful)

-Demeaning (Something less than you, embarrassing)

-Endless Seaming (Sewing to infinity?)

sounds like the endless seaming is out of context like you need another line after that

seaming....I didn't know that was a word.

the milk is in the bag, that we put in a kind of 'case' if you want, allowing us to use it like a normal box of milk
and we use glasses

harsh=rough, gritty, uncomfortable or strict
ex: "crap, these new laws are so harsh on drug dealers" (yeah i know, terrible example)

demeaning= embarassing or degrading.
ex: "It's demeaning for someone to have to apologize for something they did not do"

Endless seaming= Seaming is a word that in this case, is being used to describe a fracture or something cracking. So this part of the lyric means that something is constantly cracking or shattering.

Keep in mind, all of what i said are the literal translations, i'm sure the lyrics are metaphorical and being used to describe a deeper subject than what the literal translation would suggest.

hoped that helped, i'm not too good at explaining this sort of thing. but i still try

sounds like you mixed up seaming and seeming, put that in the translator and it should make more sense

EDIT: also, that line doesn't make sense in english, there are no nouns only a ton of adjectives and a verb

no, the translator is right. here's the actual definition for "seaming" when used in the context of this lyric:
A line across a surface, as a crack, fissure, or wrinkle.

both seaming and seeming make sense in the translator in the context of the song

harsh sa veut dire comme vraiment méchant pis comme dur ou peut etre comme kelqu'un de vraiment comme bad-ass pis dur à cuire tsé?

demeaning sa veut dire dégradant, comme de dévaloriser kechose.

endless c'est infini, ou infiniment.

techniquement seaming sa veut dire comme une ptite fente ou ouverture, mais jpense que tu l'a mélangé aek seeming, qui veut dire ressemblant.

faique ta phrase voudrait dire comme; dégradant, dévalorisant, quasiment infiniment.

c'est pas mal dur de l'traduire exactement pis de quand même faire du sens avec. j'espère que sa t'aide.

woops lol jte lé mis en francais même si t'a dit de pas lfaire lol trop tard. tk lo jespere que tu comprends peut être un ti peu mieux lo.

Usually pour it into something. But sometimes a sub-intelligent Canadian will drink straight from the bag, sickening actually.

Oh also, when you say endless seaming do you mean sewing alot, or it seems endless?

Or is it a typo.

Also, french is my second language and you know english better then I know french
