    En Berne

    A denunciation anthem that proved to be one of the group's biggest hits. It attacks the Québécois political apathy of the present, (regarding the environment and Quebec independence), State gambling and the cynicism of the government regarding poverty. If this is modern Quebec, well I put my flag at half mast, and the clowns that govern us can all get bent; If you're happy with this country (Quebec), well my man that's your opinion, you must be the CEO of some company! (listen)

    Toune d'automne

    A piece where the singer speaks fondly to a sister that has come back from a trip to English Canada. Singer Karl Tremblay famously likes to make a humorous political statement on stage by replacing the verse Promise me that this time, you're staying home for good by Promise me that you didn't turn into a federalist, little dammit! (listen)

    La Manifestation

    It comically chronicles a public protest, led by a guy that thought he was Castro, that ends up being a major disappointment and disillusionment. (listen)

    L'Hiver Approche

    A nice song about a guy saying that winter is coming, and will be hard this year. He's referring to the tough winters we experience in Quebec. Notice he also complains about an overconsumption society during almost the whole song saying Santa Claus has just arrived, We're not even in mid-November and other arguments against capitalist society.

    Quand je r'garde

    A romantic but upbeat song, the only one on this album to have been sung (as main, not backing vocals) by female member Marie-Annick Lépine.
