lyrics

Du var bara ett frö när din framtid bestämdes
En framtid i skuggan, format efter samhällets normer
Men det är dags att bryta upp, det är dags för förändring

Att fastna i livet
I ett oändligt hjul
Samma tankar och idéer
Som att växa upp i en bur

Vi kan inte stå bredvid och betrakta längre
Framtiden är din så spring, bara spring

Regarder ses pieds s'enfonçant dans la terre
Laisser la bourbe monter jusqu'à son cou
Traîner les bras, l'humérus écrasant le sol
Un amas poussiéreux d’envies trempées.
Les doigts s'écartent et l'esprit s'égare
Oublier de respirer, arrêter de respirer
Il est temps d'ériger l'échine, car,
À trop peu jouer avec le feu, on finit par se noyer.

Le sang n'est plus qu'un emblème, les stigmates de nos peines, des cicatrices et des cernes.


TRANSLATED TO ENGLISH:

You were just a seed when your future was determined
A life in the shadows, shaped by society’s norms
But it is now time to decamp; it is time for a change.

Getting stuck in life
In an endless wheel
The same thoughts and ideas
Like growing up in a cage

We cannot stand by and watch any longer
The future is yours; so run, just run.

Staring at your feet sinking into the earth
Letting the mud climb up to your neck
Dragging arms, the humerus crushing the ground,
A dusty heap of soaked desires.
The fingers open up and the mind wanders.
Forget to breathe, stop breathing
It is time to erect your spine, because,
When you hardly play with fire, you end up drowning.

Blood is now just an emblem, the stigmas of our sorrow, scars and dark circles.
