Hypatia Lyrics by Christina Goh (translated): CHORUS Indélébile Indelible On l’a cru si fragile She was thought to be so fragile De l’oubli, elle triomphe, Raison jubile Over oblivion, she triumphs, Reason exults VERSE 1 Des myriades, elle déclinait le nombre Of the myriads she enumerated the flows Jusqu’aux étoiles, explorait les mondes Up to the stars, she explored the worlds L’esthétique devenu sonde Esthetics become a sonar De l’âme, de sa pénombre Of the soul, of its penumbra Poésie devenu sonde Poetry become a sonar De la lumière, de l’ombre Of light, of shade BRIDGE On l’a cru si fragile She was thought to be so fragile VERSE 2 Précieuse, l’encre coule de ses mains Precious, the ink flows from her hands Dans les archives, elle comptait nos voies In the archives, she counted our ways Dans l’Alexandrie des lois In the Alexandria of laws Seul un livre au creux des seins With only a book in the hollow of her breast Maïeutique comble de joie Maieutics makes her so happy L’intellect est mère Intellect is a mother CHORUS Indélébile, on l’a cru si fragile She was thought to be so fragile De l’oubli, elle triomphe, raison jubile Over oblivion, she triumphs, Reason exults VERSE 3 Des nébuleuses, elle dénombrait des lendemains Of the nebula she enumerated tomorrows Jusqu’aux étoiles, explorait les mondes Up to the stars, she explored the worlds La violence n’est pas la fin Violence is not the end Rien ne ceint la force de l’onde Nothing refrains the strength of the wave Le silence n’est pas la fin Silence is not the end On explore les mondes We explore the worlds On explore les mondes We explore the worlds On explore les mondes We explore the worlds Les mondes The worlds

Leizu Lyrics by Christina Goh (translated): VERSE 1 Rien que l’essence de l’être Only the essence of the being Sans apparences Without tyrany of appearances Sans dégoût Without disgust Soie si douce pour Leizu Silk so soft for Leizu CHORUS Leizu, Leizu, Leizu, Leizu VERSE 2 Car c’est un ver ! Austere, Because it is a worm ! Austere, Hasard des natures Chance of nature Sur le chemin des mûriers On the path of mulberry trees Le fil était long The thread was long Pour s’approcher de l’horizon To approach the horizon Mais Leizu a chaudement pleuré son nom But Leizu deeply wept over her name CHORUS Leizu, Leizu, Leizu, Leizu BRIDGE Tisser la vie comme lisser la soie Weave the life as smooth the silk Pour couvrir la peine jusqu’aux cimes de douleurs To cover the sorrow up to the tops of pains Tisser la vie comme lisser la soie Weave the life as smooth the silk Cocon pour les vies en demeure Cocoon for the lives silenced Mais Leizu a chaudement pleuré son nom But Leizu deeply wept over her name CHORUS Leizu, Leizu, Leizu, Leizu

Lyrics by Sophia Cacciola: You see me coming and you turn your head you see me coming, all I see is red look into my eyes white as bone every one ends up alone You hear me in the heart that breaks woman to man, I prefer the snakes look into my eyes do you feel alone everybody must get stoned Make your laws to try and bind me send your hunters out to find me give into the rage inside me weaponize this body Look into my eyes weaponize this body Never fold my wings and disappear venom stings the guilt and fear look into my eyes white as bone Everybody must get stoned Make your laws to try and bind me send your hunters out to find me give into the rage inside me weaponize this body Look into my eyes weaponize this body Make a cage just to confine me want to live then get behind me chop my head off it won’t stop me weaponize this body Look into my eyes weaponize this body Look into my eyes WEAPONIZE THIS BODY
