Without God on our side

Les chevaliers cathares pleurent doucement
au bord de l'autoroute, quand le soir descend,
comme une dernière insulte, comme un dernier tourment,
au milieu du tumulte en robe de ciment.
As dylanesque as it sounds, the story Francis Cabrel recalls in this song is that of Cathars in the Middle Ages, who were annihillated by France solely on a religious motivation that ended with the assimilation of what is known today as their southern territories. Certainly, if there is a god he wasn't on their side; or, to quote one of the crusaders on how to tell Cathars from proper Christians: «Kill them all; the Lord will recognize His own!»
