Florence

English translation

Florence

[Frollo]:
Speak to me of Florence
And of the Renaissance
Speak to me of Bramante
And of Dante's Inferno
 
[Gringoire]:
In Florence it is said
That the earth is round
And that there is another
Continent in this world
 
Boats have already departed on the ocean
To find the gate of the passage to India
 
[Frollo]:
Luther is going to rewrite the New Testament
And we are at the dawn of a world that is splitting apart
 
[Gringoire]:
A man named Gutenberg
Has changed the face of the world
 
[Frollo]:
On the presses of Nuremberg
We are printing every second
 
[Gringoire]:
Poems on paper
Speeches and pamphlets
 
[Frollo and Gringoire]:
Of new ideas
That are going to sweep everything away
 
[Gringoire]:
The little things always triumph over the large
And literature will kill architecture
 
[Frollo]:
The scholarly books will kill the cathedrals
The Bible will kill the Church, and man will kill God
 
This will kill that
 
[Frollo and Gringoire]:
Boats have already departed on the ocean
To find the gate of the passage to India
Luther is going to rewrite the New Testament
And we are at the dawn of a world that is splitting apart
 
This will kill that
This will kill that
