To tusen grader, svetten pipler frå pannen
Luftå vibrerer mange meter fra bakken
Et knusktørt kadaver henger fast i gjerdet
Gåsehud betyr at det er ting på ferde

Millimeterpresisjon stod det i ingressen
Det er hundre år si eg stolte på tressen
Som et bilde tatt av KGB er manipulert
forteller eg deg at det var ikkje meg
Det var ikkje meg

Du trur du ser ting å så klart
Eg seier ikkje ett ord til før eg får en advokat

Et sekund er som et minutt her inne
Minutt som en time. Time som et døgn
Og du trur du ser ting å så klart
Eg seier ikkje ett ord til før eg får en advokat

    General CommentBeatiful song, everytime I hear it I'm just stunned..
    The lyrics seem to describe Christiania (modern-day Oslo) sometime in the last 100 years, My guess would be during the WW2, and about political corruption.
    The Chorus and the last verse are about being interrogated and accused for something you didn't do, and not wanting to answer to charges before you get a lawyer..
    Beautiful song no matter what..

    General Commentin english

    two thousand degrees, the sweat is dribbling out from my forehead
    the air is vibrating many meters above the ground
    a dried out carcass is hangin on the fence
    goosebumps means that there is things goin on

    millimeter-precision it was said in the introduction
    it's been a hundred years since I last trusted the press
    like a picture of KGB is manipulated
    i'm telling you it wasn't me
    it wasn't me

    you think you see things, oh so clearly
    i'm not telling another word until i get a lawyer

    a second is like minute in here
    minute like an hour, an hour like a day
    and you think you see things, oh so clearly
    i'm not telling another word until i get a lawyer
