"Jus De Canneberges" as written by and Mathieu Cournoyer Virginie Parr....
La mal blanc
sur ma main noire
et le rire jaune
sur tes lèvres roses

Tu verses le sang
sur mes vers blanc (non-puricellulaires)

N'ivoire que du bleu
et pour tuer le ver
tu bois l'armée rouge

    General CommentThe song is talking about illness, while using words relating to colour:

    The first verse translates literally as:

    White pain on my black hands
    Yellow laughter on your pink lips

    mal blanc = a bacterial infection of the hands/feet (See: paronychia)
    rire jaune = forced laughter, sometimes associated with illness

    Second verse:

    You pour blood
    on my white (non-multicellular) worms
    (N'ivoire que du bleu) (?)
    And to kill the worm
    You drink the red army

    Ivoire = Ivory
    Bleu = Blue, connotations of "feeling blue", sadness, etc.
    Rouge = red. Red alludes to blood/war/bloodshed and the L'armee rouge to the red army of the sovet union
    Ver(s) = Worm(s), but is a play on words. It's homonym "vert" = green.
    So...to kill the green you drink the red army

    Research that shows that cranberry juice helps fight illness/infection. I assume that the song overall makes reference to this. Drinking the cranberry juice (the red army) would give you pink lips (levres roses) and kill the monocellular worms (bacteria) causing the mal blanc (bacterial infection).
