"Alphabetical" as written by and Frederic Moulin Christian Mazzalai....
Everybody says I'm a lonesome kind of guy
I've been defeated by them all
If they can find me
I'm done

Everybody knows that it really doesn't matter at all
All the good things that I've done
I'm up against the wall
How come
My file has been deleted

If this is what they want
I can tell you that the order's alphabetical
Don't you get it, sooner or later
I'll be recruited by someone

Everybody knows that it really doesn't matter at all
Everybody says I shouldn't mess with you no more
If you see me on my own
Drive on

If I were dismissed I would've gotten much more
If I wasn't that kind I wouldn't care at all
Sooner or later
Sooner or later
Sooner or later
I'll change my whole perspective

If this is what they want
I can tell you that the order's alphabetical
Don't you get it, sooner or later
I'll be recruited by someone

Isn't it better?
Sooner or later
Sooner or later
Sooner or later
I'll change my whole perspective
I'll be recruited by someone

    General CommentI have to agree that it seems like something important has been lost in translation, but actually I quite like that, and I often find myself wondering what on earth it's all about.

    The only vaguely coherent theory I have is that it's some kind of matrix-style science fiction story, where the narrator has been cast out as a renegade: his file has been deleted. However he expects to be recruited to a band of rebels? Maybe ... or maybe not.

    Then again, maybe it's not supposed to be a story at all, but perhaps an expression of the more typical emotions of rejection, alienation, confusion, and embattled hope. The 'alphabetical' concept could perhaps be expressing the arbitrariness of life: success or failure in work and in love does not always seem deserved, but you have to keep hoping the next opportunity comes around soon.
