Re: Jenny Ondioline Lyrics?

Nice job and think I can help with a couple of gaps there. First though not sure there is any French as suggested elsewhere? And while I don't know if "brilliant crust' is actually correct (it certainly sounds like it) but it definitely sounds like a Laetitia idea, the juxtaposition of besuty and decay, spectacle and decadence, you know the score!

Anyway here goes:

2nd verse
...our dreams are let down IN IRONY
...once more it could be CULTURE INJURY

(tried getting that last one a LOT and don't honestly think it can be anything else)

Final verse (album)
Impressive malady, BEAUTY, A RUMOURED IDENTITY.

She also uses indubitable (and possibly, playfully, 'un'legitimate) instead of unbeatable/illegitimate in different versions.

Thanks a lot for the feedback. I actually hadn't heard of Eaten Horizons until you mentioned it, and so last night I downloaded a copy (it is fantastic!). I agree with mostly everything you added although there are a couple points of disagreement.

For instance, the line "I think the brilliant crust's hiding sad realities to come" doesn't really make sense. What exactly is the "brilliant crust"? I don't think Laetitia would write a line that had no clear meaning. However, after listening to the Eaten Horizons version of the song, I can't help but hear "crust" every time, so until I can think of something better I will accept that lyric.

Anyway, after listening to the song some more I was able to fill in a few more gaps, so here is the new draft. Happy to discuss any disagreements anyone has with some of these changes.

--------------------

Life on Earth is a bloody hazard it's a fact
As in the city the republic WAS collapsing away
I think the brilliant crust's hiding sad realities to come
And as a decisive matter of being armed, haven't we lost?

I don't care if the fascists have to win
I don't care democracy's being fucked
I don't care socialism's full of sin
THE UNBEATABLE system engenders rot

That what is exciting
The challenge, it's the new nation
BUT THE TENSIONS have to be created, there's no DOUBT

The absence of PROFOUNDER transformation in the country
Make their hopes turn sour if our dreams are let down...
Obviously once more we could be ... culturing (?)
A habit of love or don't you get to revolutionary

I don't care if the fascists have to win
I don't care democracy's being fucked
I don't care socialism's full of sin
THE ILLEGITIMATE system, so corrupt

That what is exciting
The challenge, it's the new nation
BUT THE TENSIONS have to be created there's no DOUBT

Life on Earth is a bloody hazard it's a fact
Oppressive malady ...
The horrors of the war were to be repeated anyway
It was like taking candy from a baby

We got to keep the lift, hope, and struggle
Where is the lift, the hope, and the struggle?
Give me the strength the lift, hope, and struggle
