Mickey 3D - La trêve (English translation)

English translation

The break

We would have to be
Much stronger than this
In order to lift up
Our nails and then our fingers
We would have to bleed
And open our veins
So that we remember
When we use to eat pasta
Every day of the week
We stuffed ourselves with dreams
Every day of the week
Today is a break

It's about past social struggles I think, but the way it's said is really strange. As I understand it, we're too well fed to revolt nowadays, hence a lull in social conflicts.

Ah ok, that makes some sense. Eating pasta being eating poorly as it's cheap and filling.
It is quite oddly worded isn't it?

...yes, with a change to "we would have to...." in the translation it becomes a bit clearer. Regular smile
