Elend – Borée lyrics

Hurle а travers toute la ville, а travers maints hurlements,
Hurle mort, ils sont tous morts!

Elle excerce son reigne sur une citй d'esclaves,
Car l'homme est l'animal le plus terrible.
Les guerres nous ensauvagent et -
Je le sais - en cйdant au coeur noir de la nuit,
Nous abandonnons la loi commune.

Ta vie sous la lance et l'вme sur l'йpйe;
Les traits de la fortune sont cruels.

Filaments de nuit йternelle
Dйrobйs а la ligne du temps,
Les vents brыlent les corps,
Effaзant toute trace,
Tout symbole et
Toute alliance.

Mais le froid n'йteindra pas les bыchers.
Et si je meurs, c'est d'accueillir Borйe dans mes veines.

[English translation:]

Scream across the city, scream dead through a thousand screams: they are dead!
It exerts it's will over a city of slaves,
Because man is the most terrible beast.
The wars poison us, and
I know that by yielding to the black heart of the night
We will give up the common law.
Life under the lance and the soul on the sword:
The ways of fortune are cruel.
Filaments of eternal night
Torn from the line of time,
The winds burn the bodies,
Erasing traces, symbols or
But the cold will not extinguish the pyres.
And if I die, it is to welcome Boreas in my veins.
