Vos vitres se perceront comme du papier et vos murs s’effondreront.
Les toits qui vous abritent partiront en fumée aussi rapidement qu’un fétus de paille.
Vos citadelles, vos châteaux, vos remparts, vos glorieux édifices érigés au nom de vos richesses fondront comme neige au soleil.
Nous assisterons au spectacle, nous arriverons probablement les premiers.
Encore faudrait-il vouloir à défaut de le dire, encore faudrait-il toujours y croire à défaut de l’écrire.

(We’ll tear your windows like paper, we’ll shatter your walls.
Every roof above your head will go up in smoke as fast as a wisp of the straw.
Your strongholds, your castles, all the glorious buildings raised in the name of your own wealth, will melt just like snow under the sun.
And we’ll watch the scene, first in line.
But we should want it first and not just say it.
But we should believe in it first and not just write it.)

    My InterpretationThis is honesty one of my all time favorite songs. This band is really underrated. Listening to the song gives an entire different meaning to the song rather than just reading the lyrics. I think this song is about people in the authors life that tore him down and have lived long and successful lives whereas his life appears to be torture. He fantasizes tearing his enemies' lives down as they have done to him.
