A Fun Game

Since our game of Lexicon has been sadly lost, here's another fun game to play.

I have here my own transliteration of a French song (although it rather sounds as if the French song was itself a translation of Chinese or something...). This transliteration isn't very poetic, I just tried to get the sense of the words (and my French isn't very good). So, it falls to you to translate my translation. Then someone can set it to music, and we'll be famous.

Later on I'll share the provenance of the piece, and I'll post the original French as well. For now, I don't want to bias your work.

Five Blades
Chorus:
Ideal things are difficult to make--
Event he skin of our favorites has thorns.
And yet--it is wonderful!--right under your nose
Are the best fighters there are!
The 'Five Swords' approach to help you,
And to relieve oppression!
Back to back, like a statue, they are as one.
The sword strikes with great precision!

Chorus
Statues are easy to change,
If you have the technology.
The king, gently, is deposed--
A revolutionary method of fighting!

Chorus
The desire for change comes from the people,
The desire for change comes from the people,
The desire for change comes from the people!
The best fighters there are!
(Permitting change is a right)
