1914

Verdun

Baïonnettes aux canons (x7)
Pour la France,
En avant ! 1

Like scum of earth
Like dust on shoes
I see the walls of Fort Douaumont

Despair
Despond
Despair
Despond

The shrapnel rain wrapped me
It falls hard, washes me away
My world remained without light
The leaden clouds filled the sky

Got the light
And woke up dead
God of light

You will be exterminated
Don’t even try
Your life will be trampled down
In Verdun’s mud
Fairness does not exist
And you’re just a piece of meat
In the grinder of senseless war

Got the light
And woke up dead
God of light

Les échos des morts de la Meuse
Halte-là, on ne passe pas
Plus de morgue, plus d'arrogance
Fuyez barbares et laquais
C'est ici la porte de France
Et vous ne passerez jamais 2

  • 1. Fix bayonets / For France / Forward !
  • 2. Lyrics of the song 'Verdun, on ne passe pas' : The echos of the dead of Meuse / Halt, no one passes there / No more morgue, no more arrogance / Flee, barbarians and lackeys / Here it's the door of France / And you will never pass
