"Pâte Filo" as written by and Mathieu Cournoyer Thomas Augustin....
Pour contrôler mon impudicité
J'ai couvert mon coeur d'une pâte filo
Qui me protège de toi et de ta libido

Et pour contrôler ma mouillabilité
J'ai appliqué la nitro sur la pâte filo
Et je m'incline devant toi et ta libido

Pour contrôler ma sensibilité
J'ai couvert mon coeur d'une pâte filo
Qui me protège de toi et de ta libido

Pour contrôler ma sexualité
J'ai appliqué la nitro sur la pâte filo
Et je m'incline devant toi et ta libido

    General CommentThe man singing has a girlfriend with a sexdrive thats out of control, basically. He's trying to protect himself from her with pâte filo, a type of french dough, around his heart so he isnt affected by her. But he admits defeat with the line 'je m'incline devant toi et ta libido' and gives himself over to her libido.

    General Commentstijlintact , I never thought of it that way but I think it's about some guy who's afraid to hurt his girlfriend if he sleeps with her so he tries to control himself but in the end he just goves in.

    General CommentI actually think he's afraid of getting hurt himself. It's "Qui *me* protège", isn't it. If he was trying to protect the one with the libido he would have said it differently. But what does nitro mean?

    General CommentThe thing that makes it so nice is that pâte filo in French means "phylo pastry", which describes the lovely fragility of his heart's defense and how intentional he makes his vulnerability.
    It's also an awfully pretty image, isn't it?

    General CommentI don't think he gives in in the end, deciding everything will be fine. I think he decides to "go out with a bang," because he smears "nitro" on his pastry-wrapped heart first, then leans towards her...
    Nitro-glycerine? BOOM!
    Suicide lovebomgs!

    General Commentwell, you can probably make pretty much anything from those lyrics but Julien (the singer) said that the song was actually about anal fissures...

    (And no, I'm not making this up... he said it this week-end on national tv.. on the show "Tout le monde en parle"...)

    A lot of their songs are about diseases... "Montreal -40" is about common cold, "Le Crabe" is about cancer,
    "Jus de Canneberge" is about Unirary Tract Infections...etc

    Anyway... good song, from a great band!

    My InterpretationThe way I see it, the singer is in love with a girl with whom he doesn't want to sleep because he knows that she only wants him for sex and that he will end up getting hurt, but he gives in at the end... It's the opposite of what we usually see happening :P
