Rien ne manque au confort de l’ennui
A tous les mensonges
A toutes les familles
L'’or perdrait sa valeur
Et personne ne chercherait
Et ne pourrait servir a lui
Procurer un bien etre superieur
A celui des autres
Leur connaissance de la vie
Ne devait rien a leur presence
Episodique dans l’enceinte
Des facultes ni aux diplomes
Dont le projet indissoluble
Est d’empecher la vie des autres
Tout en organisant leur survie
L’’’’'argent est la cause
De toutes les discordes
De toutes les haines
Et de toutes les ambitions

    General CommentI'll translate it for you english folks.

    The Tower Of Money.

    Nothing is missing to the comfort of boredom
    To all the lies
    To all the families
    Gold would lose it's value
    And no one would search
    And it couldn't serve him
    Get a better well being
    Than the one of others
    Their knowledge of life
    Didn't owe to their presence
    Episodic in it's interiors
    Of faculties or diplomas
    Than the project insoluble (not sure how to translate indissoluble)
    Is to forbid the life of others
    All while organizing their survival
    Money is the cause
    Of all dischords
    Of all hates
    And of all ambitions

    Note that for the song, Argent in french means money and silver, so poetically it can mean both.
