Hostility to every living creature, like anti-intellectual demands
"Inalienable" is not some moving feature, it's foundational bedrock of the land

So it's criminal, antithetical, inimical, to enlightened plan
If you seek to make divisible the principle of the profane rights of man

...And so returns the bourgeoise, the bastard child of democracy
It morphs into aristocracy and demands advantage it must not receive

But if the citizen will not stay its hand, the myth becomes a menace on the land
And it's criminal, antithetical, inimical

Intelligence and knowledge are an ordnance, a constant check on privilege and wealth
Nurture and provisioning their furtherance, a fundament of democratic health

So it's criminal, antithetical, inimical, to enlightened plan
If you seek to make divisible the principle of the profane rights of man
