Eg ser på det eg har skapt
og teller på liv som har gått tapt
Eg ser at det som før låg i vater
eg ser det har blitt skakt

Men tiå har vært snill
mot mitt håndtverk
Eg la ner stein for stein

Eg har stått på min terrasse
og styrt skutå beint
Eg har vært tøff mot min klasse
og knukket nogen bein
Eg har gjort mine grep
og holdt samvittigheten rein

Sving din hammer
til din papa drar deg inn
Trekk et rom nummer
men ikkje bland din med min


Å Clementine, om du var min
og ikkje hadde lagt deg sjøl inn
Då sko du tatt del i det som blir
Flamingos dynasti

    General CommentRoughly translated:

    I look at what I've created
    and count lives that have been lost
    I see that what before stood straight
    I see it's now leaning

    But time has been kind
    to my craftmanship
    I put down stone for stone

    I've stood on my porch
    and sailed the ship straight
    I've been tough to my class
    and broken a few bones
    I've done my moves
    and kept my conscience clean

    Swing your hammer
    untill your daddy drags you in
    Pull a room number
    but don't mix yours with mine


    Oh Clementine, if you were mine
    and didn't put yourself in (commit herself I believe is meant)
    Then you should have taken part in what will become
    The dynasty of Flamingo

    My InterpretationKaizers Orchestra always follows a line of events that is combined in to a story. This album is about a guy (Maestro) who willingly gets locked up in an asylum. I think this song is Meastro who looks back at his life with pride and regrets. He has been tough to his class mates and broken some bones but kept his head high.

    And i think he wants everybody to just loose it and do whatever they please. Swing your hammer untill your dad drags you in.

    Great album by the way.
