Uncomprehensible Lyrics

Hello Everybody!
Seems like I'm finally okay with the way of singing of laetitia!
Check these lyrics from "Narco Martenot" and tell me if you agree withme or not:

Narco Martenot

When people will (when people will)
Seize no savior (see no savior)
When it's on the brink of collapse (brink of collapse)
With a deficit oh so harsh (oh oh so harsh)
When there?s official (there?s official)
And unofficials (unofficials)
Pretending to fight a war against (a war against)
The dirty money that it drives on

Tu pleures quand on murit (quand on murit)
Co?te beaucoup de vies (beaucoup de vies)

Narco Dollar, Narco Dollar
The world is nested of fresh money
Narco Dollar is a big supplier
Until they rebeal machinally
Narco Dollar, Narco Dollar
The world is nasty for your money
Narco Dollar is a good supplier
Until they rebeal machinally

Re: Uncomprehensible Lyrics

frankly i always sang along with the last part of this song.

"he's making a list, checking it twice, gonna find out who's naughty or nice"

I think this song might also be referring to when the economy goes down the drug trade money tends to increase. and the fall-out resulting from it.

Re: Uncomprehensible Lyrics

Hey! Remember the groop made "Wow & Flutter" in 1994, the Gulf War context and all!
This song is form me a way to show how people can be blind and how money make people get involved into a war!
And the lyrics, to you agree with my translation?

Re: Uncomprehensible Lyrics

Here's the very incomplete translation from koly's site:

When poeple will seize ?more? savior
When its...?populous?
With a deficit oh so high
When there's official
And all officials
Pretending to fight the war again
?with flags on.
Dites-vous qu'on?
Coute beaucoup de vies
Not our dollar
Not with our love
The world is tested?
But the dollar is a big supplier
To bear
