Kent - Falska Profeter Lyrics Translation (False Prophets)

(View Original Swedish Lyrics)
Album: Då Som Nu För Alltid
Lyrics: Joakim Berg
Music: Joakim Berg


A night wind blows in
Rattles in the windows before the rain falls
I light my red light
They become a substitute for human closeness
And warmth

Do we have a soul, if so then do our souls have a
twin somewhere
A mirror, a crystal ball
That shows the future
Do you believe in the future

You must know loneliness
If you want to understand another human being
A feeling
We all come from somewhere else
Than where we happen to be
Right now
Everyone we know is on the run from something
And what scares us we can not choose
The sin, the shame, the guilt, the death
The inadequacy in ourselves

Iron gates slam again
Walls of concrete grow around us
Graffiti and posters, Peace & Love alongside
Nazism, some sexual words, a little religion
We cherish our freedom of the press, we love
our freedom of choice
We take the liberty
To praise tolerance but we point
Our accusatory fingers
At anything that does not fit in here

I will be your country
You will be my army
This is my propaganda
My flags you see
Oh we only have each other
That is the only thing I know
So let me be your war
You can be my peace
Let me be in peace

You say that I chose my exile
but I saw it as a mission
A trust
And even self-imposed loneliness changes as
the years go by to another kind of loneliness
The best thing in my life can not
be borrowed or bought or sold
The best thing in my life I must dare to give
Only then is it deserved
Do I deserve you?
Do you think that I'm talking about simplified
mythologized love?
No, no
I'm talking about community, understanding,
solidarity and friendship
So fucking stupid am I

I will be your country
You will be my army
This is my propaganda
My flags you see
Oh we only have each other
That is the only thing I know
So let me be your war
You can be my peace

You know it
I know it
We are false prophets
I can show you now
I can give it to you
I can show you all my respect
Can you show me now?
Can you give it to me?
Can you show me all your respect?
