Peste Noire – Maleiçon lyrics

[Introduction: extrait des Chants de Maldoror, йmission radiophonique de l'Atrabilaire M.:]
De la mкme maniиre que nous nous sentons en marge et au-dessus d'un monde que nous voulons annihiler, les anciens sorciers furent les rйvolutionnaires du passй.
Comme nous dйtestons nos congйnиres bйotiens et amйricanisйs eux aussi dйtestaient le prкtre, le roi, le riche.
Eux aussi, prйparaient en ces occultes cйrйmonies les bombes des malйfices.
Ils empoisonnaient surtout, dйtruisaient cependant avec plus d'ampleur, savaient rйpandre dans les campagnes la poudre qui tue les moissons, ensevelir sous les йrables, la charge magique don't les troupeaux dйpйrissent.
Et ils s'en prirent surtout а la tendre race des enfants, celle qui, ne gardant pas les crapauds а refusй l'initiation, dйcimиrent plus radicalement, plus religieusement que les anarchistes modernes, frappиrent la race avant tout, partout, sachant que, quoique fasse l'Homme, il sera toujours l'Homme, le vil, l'йgoпste, le dйprйdateur du patrimoine d'autrui, la honte du monde, la honte du monde.
Cela devenait pour eux un but mystique de dйbarrasser l'univers de cette lиpre humaine, gagnant la bonne nature, corrompant la Terre faite pour кtre libre et qui s'avilit d'кtre l'esclave nourrice.

Li leus nous mangent,
Qui nous йtranglent et nous tuent.
Et s'est si grands mortalitйs
En bourgs, en villes, en citйs
Et tout par tout le plat pays
Que chacun en est esbahis;
N'вme n'oy qui ne prophйtise
Pis pour le peuple et pour l'Йglise,
Si que trop serons accroupis;
Quand chascuns dit: "Vous arйs pis,
A cy doleur et meschлance,
Et cy meschief et pestilence",
Et qui porra endurer
Ne commenc porra on durer?
Certes les. X. Plaies d'Йgypte
Contre ce fu chose petite.

[Guillaume de Machant (1300-1377)
Le livre du voir dit, vv. 5454 - 5470]

[Translation of the intro:]
In the same way that we feel alienated from a world we look down upon and wish to eradicate, the ancient sorcerers were the anarchists of the past.
As much as we loathe our fellow Americanized boeotians, they also despised the aristocracy, the priest, the king.
They too would conjure the most nefarious of spells during their nocturnal rites.
Poison they did, yet with much more devastation, scattering in the fields the powder that decimates the harvest, burying under the maple trees the sacred seeds gradually wasting away the cattle.
And, above all, they tormented the young ones, who by not keeping the toads refused to take part in the initiation, decimated, yet with more extremism and religious fanaticism than modern day anarchists, assailed mankind especially, everywhere it could, knowing very well that regardless of what Man may do, he shall always be Man, a vile, egoistic creature, plunderer of his fellow man's heritage, the shame of the world... The disgrace of the world.
It became a mystical goal of theirs to rid the universe of this human leprosy which infests Mother Nature, contaminating the Earth, meant to be free and who debases itself by being the enslaved nurturer.

[Trad: Carnage]
