The Last Drop (2014)

Elotonta lihaa

The Last Drop (2014)

 

Jonossa seuraava

Jonossa seuraava (2014)

 

Better Drunk Than Part Of The Machine

Ironing Day (2010)

 English translations of the Finnish lyrics:

Jonossa seuraava (The next in line)

 So here we are now in the magic land of things

Speaking loudly to our cell-phones: You’ve ruined my day

Everywhere the red headlights scream drooling from the mouth

And behind the next corner lurks loneliness and eternal death

Text-message columns tell us our deepest concerns

The neighbour’s cat’s shit on our lawn is what interests us the most

 

And there goes me

Pushing shopping carts

The next in line

Consuming the earth away

 

Day after day we throng amongst these endless product shelves

Experiences fall through our fingers like sand in the hourglass

And everything just goes on like it’s always been

We’re either so fucking tired or so fucking fucked up

 

And there goes me

Pushing shopping carts

The next in line

With a stressed out expression on my face

Consuming the earth away

 

When death comes to collect us all and last leaves fall

And apathy reaches the critical mass

When no-one cares enough to even draw a pussy on the wall

Will you like it better then?

Or will you be sad?

 

And there goes me

Pushing shopping carts

The next in line

With a stressed out expression on my face

 

What do we really want?

What are we still lacking of?

Maybe everything will still turn out for the best...

 

Elotonta lihaa (Lifeless meat)

 I look at you as you lean against the back wall

You’re looking at me but your eyes cannot see

You’re looking at me but you look right through me

What do I have to do to make something move

That at least a little sting somewhere is left to gnaw at you

 

How did we become mere lifeless meat

Human slime, oil for the machine

Bodies filled with unformed hate

How did we become mere lifeless meat

Just fat moving about

Just lifeless meat

 

I wanna get well for my own sake

Wake up and breathe some fresh new air

You just need to keep in mind that this is not all there is

But too much and sad it still is

 

How did we become mere lifeless meat

Human slime, oil for the machine

Bodies filled with unformed hate

How did we become mere lifeless meat

Just fat moving about

Just lifeless meat

Just fat moving about

Just a trivial mass

 

Vain kuolleet kalat kelluu (Only dead fish float)

 As decisions move further and further and there is always more cuts to do

And no matter how many petitions you hand to the council nothing changes

So many hide themselves in the family, competes in parentry

And spy on what their neighbours do

 

I say this here

So I will also know myself

This is the cowards road

They know it is wrong

That something should be done

But they do nothing

Only dead fish float

 

As the income gap keeps growing and money always wins over life

The feeling inside of me keeps growing that I have no effect on anything

So I hide myself in the family, compete in parentry

And try to be self-sufficient

 

I say this here

So I will also know myself

This is the cowards road

I know it is wrong

That something should be done

But I do nothing

Only dead fish float

Only dead fish float

 

I gotta go, don’t have time right now

Maybe some other time

I gotta go, I don’t have any money now

Maybe some other time

We are always in a hurry

And there is always a reason

We are always in a hurry

And there is always a reason

We never have any money

And we never have time

And that later will never arrive

 

Viimeinen kesä (Last summer)

 An ad laughing at environmental destruction is trying to be funny

It is not but it says a lot about these times

So it really says nothing about anything at all

It’s just word and picture pollution

Tell me what can I do

I don’t want to receive a single one more

And tell me what you do

 

Tell me what you do

So that I can keep breathing somehow

Tell me what you do

So that my children can still in the year 2042 jump into a swimable sea

 

The only purpose is to keep the same boring circus running

And it will run until the end, just throw gasoline to the flames

Tell what can I do before everything is burned black

And tell me what you do

 

Tell me what you do

So that I can keep breathing somehow

Tell me what you do

So that my children can still in the year 2042 jump into a swimable sea
