From New York to Tokyo
everywhere it's the same

We take the same train
to the same suburbs

Everyone in single file

At night, neon lights
replace the sunlight

And on every radio
it's the same disco

The day is gray,
the night is blue

In the cities of the year 2000

Life will be so much easier

We'll each have a number
on our backs

And a star on our skin

We'll blissfully follow the herd



In the cities of the year 2000

Monopolis

There won't be any more foreigners

We will all be strangers

In the streets of Monopolis

Who are these millions of people?

Alone in the middle of Monopolis?

There's something afoot in Monopolis

This city where nothing ever happened

Where we wouldn't call the police
unless someone lost their dog

There's something afoot in Monopolis

This newfangled city, this model city

With its air-conditioned tunnels

And light-filtering glass buildings



And suburbs heated with solar power

Where there's no more summer,
where there's no more winter.

There's something afoot in Monopolis

This city built for our happiness

Is now home to our terror

They can't go out after
dark in New York or Rome

When the sun goes down...

The Occident is spooked.

There's something afoot in Monopolis

There's something afoot in Monopolis

When the sun goes down...

The Occident is spooked.

When everyone is asleep
in their suburban dorms

You'll see the Black Stars
descending on the town

Who's been attacking girls
in parking lots at night?

Who's been torching buildings?
It's always the Black Stars

So there's panic in the boulevards

When we hit the town!

When we hit the town,
people cross the street

We don't look that manly,
but give everyone a fright

Seeing guys in makeup
makes passersby laugh

But when they see blood
on our razor blades

It's like a flash
of lightning in the fog

When we hit the town!

We just want to be happy

Be happy before we're old

We don't have time
to wait till we're thirty

We just want to be happy

Be happy before we're old

We take what we can
in the meantime

When we hit the town

We come out of nowhere

We live in the streets,
we sleep in warehouses

We're quiet during the day

We go incognito

At night we change our colors
and strike at random

So get ready for a fight

When we hit the town!

When the underground city
is plunged into darkness

Anyone out for a walk
will end up on a stretcher

We don't have a motive
I know that may seem strange

Maybe we are just stupid,
maybe we're desperate

At least, that is what
headlines always say

When we hit the town!

We just want to be happy

Be happy before we're old

We don't have time
to wait till we're thirty

We just want to be happy

Be happy before we're old

We take what we can
in the meantime

By the year 2000,
we'll be in our forties

If we don't live it up now,
tomorrow it'll be too late

What are we doing tonight?

Maybe smash everything up?

If you go out dancing
don't come home too late

In case that we scratch your Jaguars

Get ready for a fight!

There's panic in the boulevards!

When we hit the town!

From the capital of the
occidental hemisphere

This is Roger-Roger with a recap
of national and international news

Ladies and gents, good evening.

In the headlines tonight
again: the Black Stars.

These terrorists keep adding to the list
of their gratuitous crimes

In the cover of darkness last night

a hundred people nearly lost their lives

when the ventilation system

in an underground habitation

out in the industrial zone

was disrupted with criminal intent.

Elsewhere, a group of motorists

with black stars on their brows

and guns in their hands

attacked the sky rail this morning.

An armed convoy has been called

to the capital by local police

to contain these Black Stars

who want to weaken the power

during this election cycle.

For details, see our editorial.

Sometimes I turn down the volume
on the television

And listen in on conversations

It's wild what you can hear,
it's wild what you can see

When you spend your life behind a bar

In a press conference
that landed like a bomb

The richest man in the world,
Zéro Janvier

Famous for building skyscrapers

Announced his official candidacy
for the elections which will appoint

the President of the Occident.

As uncontested leader of

the Party Promising Political Progress

Zéro Janvier is vowing to

make the city great again.

Here's a little sample
of his campaign promises:

We will build the new atomic world

Where mankind won't be
a slave to nature anymore

Leave the past to the nostalgic few

Long live the adventurous future!

If we want to keep the world

From becoming one totalitarian state

The Occident
must build a border wall

To protect from foreign influence

This just in:
A message from the Black Stars

Taking credit for last night's attack

A man called Johnny Rockfort
is the muscle of these Black Stars

I could tell you something
about the Black Stars

We see them every night
at the Underground Café

This is where they plot
all of their attacks

Under the direction of a certain Sadia

A revolutionary

A daddy's girl

Whose word is always law

But from the looks of her

You would never know

She just got out of university

Look, here she is...

Sadia!

When I walk down the street

I hear men murmuring

Look at that woman, such allure!

You don't see women like that anymore!

Is she a fallen star?

Is she a rising star?

Take a look at that hair!

That azure blue hair

If you could see me wholly naked

Could see me beneath these clothes

Gentlemen, you wouldn't be disappointed

To find out what I'm really like

You'd sell your souls
to sleep in my arms

You'd leave your wives
to run away with me

Don't call me "Madam"

If you don't know who I am

I am not a woman:

I am a genderfuck!

Fucking with your bodies

Fucking with your souls

Fucking with your dreams

Fucking with your dramas

Fucking with your days

Fucking with your nights

Fucking with your loves

Fucking with your lives

You'd sell your souls
to sleep in my arms

You'd leave your wives
to run away with me

Don't call me "Madam"

If you don't know who I am

I am not a woman:

I'm a genderfuck!

Fucking with your bodies

Fucking with your souls

Fucking with your dreams

Fucking with your dramas

Fucking with your days

Fucking with your nights

Fucking with your loves

Fucking with your lives

I'm everything you want

I'm everything you think

I'm your wounded loves

Your stolen youth

I'm your secret desires

And your smothered hate

I'm sex demystified

I'm violence personified

Genderfuck!

Genderfuck!

Genderfuck!

Genderfuck!

Genderfuck!

The first time she came in

To the Underground Café

Everyone fell silent at once

And Johnny Rockfort stood up

She approached him
and introduced herself

They stood by the bar
and talked all night...

Flashback!

I've heard about you and
your little group of friends

You're making a lot of noise
but you could go further

What do you mean by that?

We have to break Zéro Janvier

He's the enemy number one

We have to do everything to stop him

From gaining even further ground

But I don't think like that!

You're exactly what I need
to reach my own ends

If you follow me, you'll be somebody

You'll be the leader of the Black Stars

And we'll seize power!

Why such a weird name?
"The Black Stars"?

Because in underground tunnels
starlight doesn't reach too far

Mr. Johnny Rockfort!

Because in underground tunnels
starlight doesn't reach too far

Mr. Johnny Rockfort!

There you go, that's how it all started

After that day Johnny
never left Sadia's side

And the Black Stars were on the
front page of every newspaper

Deep down, Johnny only wanted
to make people talk about him

You could say he succeeded

We all have to make the best of life

But I don't get involved in things
that aren't my business

I didn't ask to exist

I just want to be left in peace

I don't want to do
what everyone else does

But I have to pay my rent

I work at the Underground Café

I'm just a clockwork waitress

And that gives me time to dream

Even when I can't stay on my feet

I'm always ready to fly away

I work at the Underground Café

One day you'll see the clockwork
waitress get out of this place

And start a tomato garden in the sun

What will I do today?

What will I do tomorrow?

I ask myself every morning

What am I doing with my life?

I don't want anything in particular

I just want to be okay

I don't want to work just
for the sake of working

To earn my living, as they say

I just want to do something I enjoy

I don't know what I enjoy,
that's my problem

Sometimes I pick at the guitar

It's that all I can do with my hands

I never wanted to be a star

I just want to be myself

This life isn't me

I work at the Underground Café

It's been a long time
since I saw the sun

In this underground existence

Every day is the same here

My life has no meaning

I'm like a broken neon light

I work at the Underground Café

One day you'll see the clockwork
waitress get out of this place

And start a tomato garden in the sun.

What will I do today?

What will I do tomorrow?

I ask myself every morning

What am I doing with my life?

I don't ask for much

I just want to be okay

One day you'll see the clockwork
waitress get out of this place

And start a tomato garden in the sun

In the sun

In the sun

Now it's time for the favorite
show of kids of all ages!

The number one show in all the polls:

Starmania, presented by Cristal,
the smiling face of TeleCapital.

PRESENTED BY CRISTAL
Why is it him, and why not me?

Starmania!

What's he have that you don't have?

Starmania!

Would you like to play with me?

A game that is called "Starmania"?

Write to me,
and tell me all

About your life,
about your dreams

Tell me who you wish you were

And who knows? Maybe you could be

My star for a night!

Starmania!

Her guest today: Zéro Janvier,
head of the PPPP,

whom she met in his office
in the Golden Tower

Where he granted her a
passionate, impassioned interview.

Here are some of the highlights:

Zéro Janvier, you're a man of the future

What advice do you have to give

To all the kids who dream of success?

"Believe in yourself",
that's all I can say

Every morning I receive tons of mail

From kids asking me to give them a shot

Look at me, I came from nothing

We each forge our own paths

Ladies, Lords and Gentlemen

Tonight before me is a man
who every woman wants to know

For a moment, Zéro Janvier,
I'll ask you to forget

The rich and famous businessman

You know my question:
If you weren't who you are

Tell me who you would like to be?

I've been successful in business

I've been successful in love

I go through a lot of secretaries

My office is at the top of a tower

From which I see the town upside-down

From which I control my own world

I've spent half my life in the clouds

Between New York and Singapore

I always travel first class

I have vacation homes

In every Hilton on Earth

I can't tolerate misery

But are you happy?

I'm not happy, though I seem to be

I lost my sense of humor

When I got my business sense

I've been successful and I'm proud

Deep down I only have one regret

I'm not doing what I wanted

What do you want, old boy?

We do what we can in life,

Not what we want...

I would have liked to be an artist

So I could put on my big act

Whenever the plane touches down

In Rotterdam or in Rio

I would have liked to be a singer

So I could cry out who I am

I would have liked to be an author

So I could invent my life

So I could invent my life

I would have liked to be an actor

To change who I am each day

So I could think that I look good

On a giant color screen

On a giant color screen

I would have liked to be a artist

So I could recreate the world

So I could be an anarchist

And live like a millionaire

And live like a millionaire

I would have liked to be an artist

So I could say why I exist...

Would you like to play with me?

A game that is called "Starmania"?

Starmania!
Starmania!

Starmania, Starmania, that's not me

But I know a boy whose only goal

Is to be on that show

Ziggy, his name is Ziggy

I'm crazy about him

He's not like the other guys

But I can't help loving him

Even if I know

That he will never love me back

Ziggy, his name is Ziggy

I'm crazy about him

The first time I saw him

I threw myself at him in the street

And all that I told him

Was that I wanted him.

It was four o'clock in the morning

I was alone and I was in need

of talking to somebody

He told me "Let's go have a coffee"

and we shared the story of our lives

We laughed, and we cried

Ziggy, his name is Ziggy

He's my only friend

There's only music in his head

He sells records in a shop

It's like he exists

in another galaxy

Every night, he takes me out dancing

In places that are fun and gay

Where he has so many friends

Yes, I know he only likes guys

And I should be sensible

And try to forget him, but....

Ziggy, his name is Ziggy

I'm crazy about him

He's not like the other guys

And I can't help loving him

Even if I know

That he will never love me back.

I'm a guy born into pollution

Nose to the wind,
I take a deep breath

For me smog is like a drug,
I can't do without

But nature and clean air,
they tend to make me cough

Comfy in my own skin
like a fish in a stream!

I'm a maniac for television

Just in playback
for some background noise

I need din in the night,
or I'm an insomniac

Don't like birds, don't like toads
They make me paranoid

When I go nighty-night
I need to hear a motorbike

The perfume of gasoline,
it calms my nerves

When I have a headache
I smoke a cigarette

And when I go jogging
among the buildings

Feet on the pavement,
I'm in my element!

Ev'ry Sunday
I will stay at home

Plug in the sound,
turn the volume up

Love to hear, near my ear
a ringing telephone

Countryside makes me blue,
it needs more CO2

Comfy in my own skin
like a fish in a stream!

I'm an agent of consumption

When I have dough,
I consume to the max

Get in debt 'cause I get
anything I come across

Throw myself like a slave
at every new gadget

Not a strife in my life,
just an average Joe

Comfy in my own skin
like a fish in a stream!

Bravo, bravo, bravo,
you just gave a good show!

Ziggy, what are you doing here?

I wasn't expecting you.

I wanted to show you
the letter I'm going to send

To compete on Starmania

What are you going to say?

I'll tell them about my life

You think that will be enough?
Your life?

But you don't know my life

And I want to tell them too

The things that l never told you...

Me, I was a mama's boy

And every night at bedtime
she'd say, "When you grow up..."

"You'll play Prince Charming
in Sleeping Beauty."

In Sleeping Beauty!

Every Saturday afternoon

While the other boys played

Football and volleyball

I took ballet classes

That must be why you had no friends!

When I was fifteen,
mother gave me

As a special birthday gift

A set of Tchaikovsky's complete works!

And I ran straight to the store,
on the next day, to give it back.

That was the day on which I met...

The first love of my life:
it was David Bowie

His music changed your life

I changed my name for him

You changed your name for him?

Ziggy! Ziggy!

I left my mother's house

I went back to the store

and they gave me a job

But now I know what I wanna do:

Yes now... I'm gonna be a drummer!

I'm gonna be a drummer!

I wanna be drumming rock!

I'm gonna be a drummer

I wanna be drumming rock!

The greatest drummer in the world!

He's not like the other guys

And I can't help loving him

Even if I know

That he will never love me back.

So Mr. Disco thinks he's a rock star

Johnny, you could show him
what a real rock star is

You could show him why
you're called Johnny Rockfort

Competitions for amateurs
aren't really my thing

I think that if anyone
should be on Starmania

It's not you, Ziggy,
it's rather Johnny!

That gives me an idea!

I'll call TeleCapital
and ask for Cristal

And pass myself off as a friend of hers

Someone I knew in another life

I'll offer her an interview

An exclusive with Johnny Rockfort
at the Underground Café

Underground block 30, corridor B

It's the scoop of a lifetime,
she can't pass it up

It's a hell of a scoop
if you're telling the truth

It's a hell of a scoop
if you're telling the truth

Three days late you should
have seen Cristal arrive

When Johnny Rockfort laid
eyes on her, it was all over

Like Sadia didn't exist anymore

It was all over, Sadia
didn't exist anymore...

Rolling!

Ladies and gentlemen,
I have before me tonight

Johnny Rockfort...
the leader of the Black Stars

Who for obvious reasons
won't be showing us his face!

Johnny Rockfort...
everybody talks about you

Johnny Rockfort...
who are you, where are you from?

Who is the real character
hiding behind all this makeup?

Johnny Rockfort...
do you want to be a star?

Johnny Rockfort...
why the Black Stars?

Is your terrorist philosophy
ecological or futuristic?

I don't care about politics

I've never read a newspaper
and I'm just as happy!

Johnny Rockfort...
a product of unemployment

Johnny Rockfort...
do you believe in marriage?

What kind of music do you like?

What's your astrological sign?

I am Johnny Rockfort

I was born in the northern projects

I grew up in the streets

I didn't choose to be a thug

My mother lost her mind

Because my father drank too much

I dropped school when I was fifteen

And I hopped onto the first train

Godless, lawless

I want to live and die
with no house or home

I don't want to go back
to sleep in the projects

I burned all bridges when I left

I've got no past, I've got no future

There's no future left on Earth.

What can we do?

There's no future left on Earth.

What can we do?

I've never worked in my life

But I've managed just fine

One day I found myself

At the Underground Café

That is where I met

All the friends I have today

When I don't know where to sleep

That's where I spend the night

Godless, lawless

I want to live and die
with no house or home

I don't want to go back
to sleep in the projects

I burned all bridges when I left

I've got no past, I've got no future

Godless, lawless

I want to live and die
with no house or home

I don't want to go back
to sleep in the projects

I burned all bridges when I left

I've got no past,
I've got no future

No past!

(No future!)

No past!

(No future!)

No past!

(No future!)

No past!

(No future!)

(No past!)

No future!

(No past!)

No future!

(No past!)

No future!

(No past!)

No future!

No past!

(No future!)

No past!

No past!

(No future!)

No past!

(No future!)

No past!

No future...!

Cut!

I was born
on the bright side of life

For a long time I stayed
an innocent little girl

But even I had to move one day

I wanted to live my life

When your name is "Cristal"

You tend to wish upon your star

Whether we come from above or below

What difference does it make deep down?

I'm a lot more like you than you think

I always wanted to meet an angel

I came into this world crying for help

Whether we come from above or below

What difference does it make deep down?

I came into this world crying for help

Whether we come from above or below

What difference does it make deep down?

I'm a lot more like you than you think

I always wanted to meet an angel

I came into this world crying for help

I need love...

A crowd of a hundred thousand,
say the organizers

Barely fifty thousand,
say the detractors

Gathered today in the municipal stadium

To hear Zéro Janvier unveil
his electoral program

Zéro Janvier,
President of the Occident!

Zéro Janvier,
President of the Occident!

Zéro Janvier,
President of the Occident!

To stop this new wave of terrorism
we'll take extreme measures

And impose a return to order
if we can't live in harmony:

We'll put the capital under martial law.

Zéro Janvier,
President of the Occident!

Regarding the energy shortage,
you already know my strategy

Once we've emptied all the oceans
we'll go live somewhere else than Earth:

Our next capital will be a space station.

Zéro Janvier,
President of the Occident!

No more money for shithole countries
who only thank us with bombs anyway

We must take care of our people first!
I am the Occident's last chance.

I am the Occident's last chance.

We'll build a new atomic world
where man won't be a slave to nature

Leave the past to the nostalgic few
Long live the adventurous future!

Ladies and gentlemen, we must
interrupt our normal programming.

A special bulletin tells us that Cristal,
the smiling face of TeleCapital,

has been kidnapped during a brawl.

She went there with her neutron camera

to film the Black Stars in action.

You know you can't believe
everything they say on TV

If you want to know, if you ask me

I don't think that she
was kidnapped by Johnny

I think she ran away with him...

There's no future left on Earth

Something is off-course

In the solar system

Is there someone in the universe

Who could answer our questions?

Our prayers?

Our prayers...

Who will tell us

Why we are here

In this world that doesn't fit us

Who will tell us

Why we are here

In this world that doesn't fit us...

From New York to Tokyo
everywhere it's the same

We take the same train
to the same suburbs

Everyone in single file

At night, neon lights
replace the sunlight

And on every radio
it's the same disco

The day is gray, the night is blue

In the cities of the year 2000

Life will be so much easier

We'll each have a number
on our backs

And a star on our skin

We'll blissfully follow the herd

In the cities of the year 2000

Mirabelle or Roissy,
it's all the same

All around the world
are the same charter flights

To travel where the sky is blue

Once we'll forget
where to find sunlight

We'll move on to Mars or Jupiter

Everyone in single file

In the cities of the year 2000

Life will be so much easier

We'll each have a number
on our backs

And a star on our skin

We'll blissfully follow the herd

In the cities of the year 2000

Monopolis

There won't be any more foreigners

We will all be strangers

In the streets of Monopolis

We'll walk down the street,
hand in hand

Just like we did in 1980

Together in Monopolis

When our kids hit their twenties

We'll be from another time

A time before Monopolis

I can see us sitting on a bench

Alone in the middle of Monopolis

The police are all over town

It's gotten pretty quiet here

No one dares set foot in the
Underground Café anymore

And I read magazines

A glimpse of a sunnier life
where they drive limousines

And die of an overdose

The actress Stella Spotlight,
aka "la Divine"

Under pressure of
the feminist cause

threatening to turn
her into a martyr

decided to give up
the film industry.

Once she completes
her long-awaited film

In which, for the first time,
she won't be appearing nude

The movie is called
"Twilight Boulevard"

She's obviously not afraid of ridicule!

This film is a remake
of a famous classic

But she will change the plot
to better fit her life

And then she will retire

To her tropical villa

To write her memoirs

They called me Baby Doll

I was your idol

But I'm past the age
of my image

I should tie the knot

With an oil tycoon

I'm at that age,
time to turn the page

One day I'll say bye bye

To all this show business

To all this glitz, to all this stress

Bye bye to my youth

Oh, come and watch her die

The last sex symbol

Everyone come applaud

The end of an idol

I spent my life doing
only what they told me

Spent my life smothering
my own dreams and envies

Oh yes...

When I go out without makeup
nobody ever notices me

Not even those who dream of me
at night in their beds

You only see the surface

Of this Technicolor world

If you dream of being in my place

Come see the other side of the set

My drug is alcohol

I am old school

When I smoke weed
it doesn't do it for me

I'm afraid I'll go insane

Every night I dream of being raped

Me, who's always good
as a golden image

Like my divine image

Which you praise and adulate

My image in a magazine

Onto which you ejaculate

Alone in my Acropolis

I feel myself collapsing

I feel myself collapsing

It was just a flash in the pan

All this show business

Beneath the glitz there was stress

There was my youth

Oh, come and watch her die

The last sex symbol

Come and see, come and laugh

At the end of an idol

I wasted my life,
but I won't waste my exit

I wasted my life,
but I won't waste my goodbye party

Goodbye party

In front of the whole world's cameras

I'll descend the grand staircase

That leads to the bottom
of my gilded pool

Leave me, let me go

Leave me, let me die

Before I grow old

You who stole my whole life

Come snatch away my death

Leave me, let me go

Leave me, let me die

Before I grow old

You who have taken everything

Come and share my corpse

Oh yes...

I love you all and I blow you a kiss

I was only a meteor

Do you want to see my death up close?

It will be... in Technicolor!

Who could have sent me

This bundle of orchids?

It came with a telegram...

And it's signed: Zéro Janvier!

Allow me to impose, madame

It was with much emotion
that I learned of your intention

To leave your spectacular career behind

Let me remind you what you meant
to men of my generation

When we were on the front lines
defending the nation

Goddess of love,
goddess of war

I kept your photo with me
like a talisman

You guided my military career,

Would you like to govern
my political career?

Symbol of our values and our freedom

Would you honor me
by being by my side?

Would you honor me
by being by my side?

In the face of destiny,
I'm willing to give in...

To celebrate La Divine's farewell
the stars were out last night

At a grand ball for the premiere of her
latest movie at the Monopolis Opera.

Stella Spotlight made waves
when she arrived at the screening

With Zéro Janvier, the Western
World's most eligible bachelor

Stella Spotlight in

Twilight Boulevard

Meanwhile, still no news
on our friend Cristal

Who, we remind you, was kidnapped
a month ago, or so we think

By the Black Stars

I haven't seen Johnny or Sadia
since that fateful day

Apparently they're hiding
somewhere in an old warehouse

It would be hard to come out
with their girlfriend Cristal

They must be concocting
some lovely little scandal

Some lovely little scandal

Dearie, it's now time to claim

Responsibility for your abduction

Tonight I'm going to write up

A shocking press release

It would be a stronger move

To broadcast on TV

A recorded message where

I'd yell to the whole world:

Help me please,
I need love!

Help me please,
I need love!

I think that she is right

Let us do it in her way

We can see that the little boy

Has learned his lesson well

Okay, starting from today

I'm the one who calls the shots

Hey listen, I don't want to be

Second fiddle on the team

Well no one's keeping you here

Do whatever you want

Johnny, I'm warning you,
you're playing with fire!

Then his burning eyes met mine

Like a laser beam

And I was projected somewhere

Far beyond the Earth

Help me please,
I need love!

Help me please,
I need love!

The way the Earth needs the sun

I need love!

The way stars need other stars

I need love!

The way the sky needs the sea

I need love!

The way summer needs winter

I need love!

I need love!

Just a little love...

I need love!

The way I need music

I need love!

The way I need light

I need love!

The way I need water,
the way I need air

I need love!

I need love!

I need love!

Just a little,
just a little love

The way birds need their wings to fly

I need love!

The way the noon needs
the night to shine

I need love!

I need love!

Just a little love

I need love!

I need, I need, I need, I need,
I need, I need, I need, I need

I need love! I need love!

I need, I need, I need, I need,
I need, I need, I need, I need

I need love!
I need love...

COMMERCIAL BREAK

If you want a new man

Zéro is the man you need

If you want to go further with him

Vote for tomorrow, today!

ZERO IS THE MAN YOU NEED

After this ad of a rather
unusual nature

It's time for the long-awaited
interview with Zéro Janvier

Oh man, I don't want to miss that!

I'd better sit down,
there's gonna be trouble!

And here with the questions,
your friend Roger-Roger

What news do you have for us,
Mr. Zéro Janvier?

We'll build a new atomic world

Where mankind won't be a
slave to nature anymore

But don't you fear that your politics
might lead to a dictatorship?

A little courtesy, please!
I'm your guest!

I didn't come here to be insulted

It's not enough to repeat
your catchphrases

What will be the priorities
of your administration?

I'm here to talk about
making the world great again

Making a world where it
will feel great to exist

Where our first priority

Is to ensure our security

Are you referring to a police state?

Okay, sir, would you listen to me?

But what are you going
to do about poverty?

I'm here to talk about
prioritizing freedom

I'm talking about a world where
there won't be anything left

But order, beauty, luxury,
tranquility, and cleanliness.

Help me please,
I need love!

Help me please,
I need love!

Folks, apologies for that
unfortunate incident--

How could that happen?
It was organized sabotage!

Help me please,
I need love!

Help me please,
I need love!

This message from Cristal
was transmitted by spatial waves

The use of which is illegal!

Really, that Starmania will make
you do just about anything

I told you earlier that Cristal
was concocting a little scandal

As for Stella, let me tell you,
she's really hit a new low

If you want a new man, indeed
Zéro is the man you need!

Hurry up and get dressed

We'll be late for the concert

The proceeds go to cancer research

You know how important
it is for my career

Put on your white chinchilla-fur coat

The people who will be there tonight

Want to get their money's worth

I've had enough of working for you

I used to sell dreams,
now I'm selling vice

No, I'm on strike tonight

Then it's over between us

Then get out, I don't care!

I'm asking on bended knee

Will you marry me?

We only have one life, why share it?

Why be part of a pair
if it means living half a life?

Don't confuse love with pity

When you're unhappy
it's better to be with someone

We'll never be able to love each other

Without stepping on each others' toes

I'm with you because you're good for me

You're using me to achieve your own ends

Don't confuse love with work

We do whatever we can
to make ourselves happy

Yes, but we're never happy together

At the same time, no, no, no

Ego trip!

You're on an ego trip

Ego trip!

I'm on an ego trip

If we only love ourselves,
how can we love each other?

Ego trip!

We're both on an ego trip

My fortune at your feet
for an hour with you

I'd do anything it takes to possess you

One look from you and I'm in heaven

If you leave me I'm a ruined man

Do you want to be mine for life?

I'm begging you, say yes!

Ego trip!

You're on an ego trip

Ego trip!

I'm on an ego trip

If we only love ourselves
how can we love each other?

Ego trip!

We're both on an...

Ego, ego, ego, ego

Trip trip!

Ego, ego, ego, ego

Trip trip!

Ego, ego, ego, ego

Trip trip!

Ego, ego, ego, ego

Trip trip!

Ego, ego, ego, oh

Trip trip!

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah...

Ego, ego, ego, ego

Trip trip!

If we only love ourselves
how can we love each other?

Ego trip!

We're both on an...

Ego trip!

Cristal has become the people's hero

Ever since we saw that spectacular image

Of her with Johnny Rockfort
dressed as a Dark Star

The poster has sold millions of copies

We have to do something big

Since I've been with you

I feel you pulling back

I've announced
on every channel

That I have joined your cause

I don't want to look ridiculous

All my life I've dreamed
of having someone to love

You know I'm afraid for you

We could leave all this behind
and start over again

I gave everything up for you

Don't make me doubt that decision

It's too late, we don't have a choice

We have to do something big

I thought that maybe we could
blow up a supermarket

Offer everyone a flaming hunk of meat

I have a better idea!

What if we blew up
the Golden Tower of Zéro Janvier?

We would make them all dance
surrounded by fire

They take us for fools

Whatever they think of us, we don't care

We don't care about anything

We don't care that we're unhappy

Our love is even deeper

When there's nothing left to lose

When there's nothing left to lose

If you leave with me now
you'll never come back here

If I leave with you
I'll forget who I was

You'll be a fugitive!

If you chain yourself to me
you'll learn to like your chains

I'll attach myself to you
like ivy to an oak

Far from the tunnels
beneath Naziland

We're sure to find
a no man's land

Where we can live
desperately free

They take us for fools

Whatever they think of us, we don't care

We don't care about anything

We don't care about being unhappy

We're playing the real game

When there's nothing left to lose

When there's nothing left to lose

Come with us, risk your lives

On highways filled with lunatics

Then you'll understand
how far we can go

When there's nothing left to lose

When there's nothing left to lose!

Ziggy, what would I do without him?

He's my whole life

He always shows up at midnight

I'm afraid for him while I wait

I wonder what he's doing

I hope nothing happened to him

Oh, there you are! I was worried

Grab your coffee and I'll be ready

Marie-Jeanne, I'm sorry

Tonight we're not going dancing

I came to tell you something

That I guess will hurt your feelings

I'm not going to be stopping by

Every evening to take you dancing

I came to tell you I'm leaving

Our planets are parting ways

Ziggy, you're my only friend

You know I saw Sadia a few times

She got me a job as DJ at Naziland

Zéro Janvier's nightclub

What does Sadia have
to do with anything?

She has friends in high places

So she left the Black Stars behind?

If you want to know the truth...

Sadia works for Zéro Janvier.

Ziggy, you're pulling my leg!

Tell me it's not true!

Our planets are parting ways

From today until forever

Don't try to hold me back

Don't be angry if I go

Our planets are parting ways

Like night and day

What's the point of living

If you have to live without love?

What's the point of living

If you have to live without love?

We sleep pressed one against another

We live with one another

We caress each other,
cuddle each other

We understand each other,
console each other

But at the end of the story

We find we're still alone in the world

We dance pressed one against another

We run after one another

We hate each other,
tear each other apart

We destroy each other,
desire each other

But at the end of the story

We find we're still alone in the world

We sleep pressed one against another

We live with one another

We caress each other,
cuddle each other

We understand each other,
console each other

But at the end of the story

We find we're still alone in the world

But at the end of the story

We find we're still alone in the world

Still all alone in the world

I'm flying, flying, flying away

Sitting at the controls

Don't ask for anything slow

I'm the keeper of the disco

It's mechanical music

Apocalyptic music

I'm flying, flying, flying away

Sitting at the controls

Sitting at the controls

I'm flying away,
flying away...

I'm flying away sitting at the controls

To widespread surprise,
the actress Stella Spotlight

Has just announced her
marriage to Zéro Janvier

It will be a simple affair only,
at Notre-Dame of the Armies

Followed by a massive
reception at Naziland

The new rotating nightclub on top of the
Golden Tower owned by Zéro Janvier

The sun is shining on Naziland

On hundred-story buildings

I've got the whole world in my hand

On the hundred and twenty-first floor

Tonight we dance,
tonight we dance

We dance at Naziland

We're already deep underground

It's back to the catacombs

Enclosed in massive tunnels

Man never sees his shadow anymore

The city has spread its wings

Spanning the entire country

The neon lights flash in the sky

And daytime looks like night

Tonight we dance,
tonight we dance

We dance at Naziland

Tonight we dance!

Tonight we dance!

I know where the Black Stars are

I can tell you what they're planning

Don't be surprised when you see
them among your guests tonight

What are you talking about?

All the entrances are well-guarded

They're planting a bomb
right under your feet

You'd better go and verify
before they can escape

They won't get out alive
if we get there in time

The sun is shining on Naziland

On hundred-story buildings

I've got the whole world in my hand

On the hundred and twenty-first floor

Bombs are falling around us

No need to dig our graves

We'll all die partying

But who cares? Tonight we're dancing!

Tonight we dance,
tonight we dance

We dance at Naziland

Tonight we dance!

Tonight we dance!

Tonight we dance!

Help me please,
I need love...

Help me please,
I need love...

Why do I live, why do I die?

Why do I laugh, why do I cry?

This is an S.O.S.
from an Earthling in distress

I've never had my feet on the ground

I wish I'd been a bird

I'm not well in my skin

I'd like to see the world
turned upside down

It might be more beautiful

More beautiful from above

From above

I've always confused
real life with comics

I feel a desire to change

I feel something

Luring me, luring me

Luring me from on high

In the lottery of the universe

I must have drawn the short straw

I'm not well in my skin

Why do I live, why do I die?

Why do I scream, why do I cry?

I think I'm picking up waves

From another world

I've never had my feet on the ground

I wish I'd been a bird

I'm not well in my skin

I'd like to see the world
turned upside down

I wish I'd been a bird...

Sleep, child, sleep...

In a moment we'll know
the results of the election

In exactly three minutes,
we'll reveal the name

Of the President of the Occident

There were many candidates

But one person's positions
kept making headlines

Tonight we'll know
if yes or no

The popular vote is on his side
like the polls predicted.

Cristal's brutal death
and the arrest of Johnny Rockfort

have earned Zéro Janvier
a reputation for strength

which could lead him to
a resounding victory.

Folks, it's eight o'clock.

The winner is appearing
on your screens:

Zéro Janvier is President
of the Occident!

Here he is on the balcony
of the PPPP building

And Stella Spotlight has just arrived
at his side to make a speech

Stella Spotlight, we're listening

The honor of announcing
this victory falls to me

Zéro Janvier, the man at my side

Ladies and gentlemen,
you don't want to believe it

But after all, you're
the ones who voted

This was what the majority wanted

Zéro Janvier,
President of the Occident!

If you want to know
the moral of the story

Go home, take a look
at yourself in the mirror

Or just watch me cling to power,

See where to can lead
a desire to be a star

You'll be my victory,
I'll be your power

Zéro Janvier,
President of the Occident!

What's the point of wanting
to climb so high?

What's the point of wanting
to be so beautiful?

If nothing is left
at the end of the show

But the heat of a spotlight on your skin

The universe is a star system

And Earth is a speck of stardust

The moon will be my crown

At my cosmic wedding

The milky way will be my veil,

My wedding dress an aurora borealis

In front of my mirror
I dreamed of being a star

I dreamed of being immortally beautiful

Tonight I'll see through the mirror

Whether life is eternal

I would have liked to be an artist

So I could put on my big act

The way birds need their wings to fly

Whenever the plane touches down

The way the moon needs the night to shine

In Rotterdam or in Rio

Help me!

I would have liked to be an actor

The way the earth needs the sun

To change who I am each day

The way stars need the stars

And so I could look good

Help me!

On a giant color screen

I need love

So I could say why I exist

My head is pounding

I just want to sleep

Lay down on the asphalt

And let myself die

Stone...

The world is stone

I seek the sunlight
in the middle of the night

I don't know if the world
is turning upside-down

Or if it's just me making a scene

Making another scene

I seek the sunlight

in my darkest night

Stone, the world is stone

I don't want to fight anymore

I don't want to run anymore

Like all those clockwork people

Who build empires

Blowing away in the wind

Like a house of cards

Stone, the world is stone

Let me struggle

Don't come to my aid

Come finish me off instead

Put me out of my misery

My head is pounding

I just want to sleep

Lay down on the asphalt

And let myself die

Let me struggle

Don't come to my aid

Come finish me off instead

To put me out of my misery

My head is pounding

I just want to sleep

Lay down on the asphalt

And let myself die

And let me die...
