Les excuses (English translation)

The excuses

I learned by mistake that people dress up
They wait for death under the roof of churches
That on the mountains in the morning
The wild years that make us human go to sleep
 
I learned by mistake that you dress up
That you swear loudly under the roof of churches
That on the mountains you lay down the women
That in your mouth songs get a soul
 
When the crave will burn our gods
When death will break its vows
When reason will split up in two
Swallow your bones
Beg the fire for forgiveness
Swallow your waters
Beg the fire for forgiveness

rendent l’âme -> that means "die" (literally "give back (your) soul [to God]")

These lyrics make no sense to me, but the English basically follows them.
