"Lost In Translation" as written by and Roger Eno....
Fragile you are
And yet the strongest by far
Who's to save us now
That you've turned weak ?

I can see it in your eyes
I can feel it in my gut
Now we've really reached
The point of no return

we've all been traumatized
We were all a part of the revolution
We call the truth a lie
Too much got lost in translation

from my heart to your ears
Transforming words to tears
As vibrations of a string
Become a sound

I realize we're frail
Burned out and pale
Do you think we'll ever learn to love again ?

we've all been traumatized
We were all a part of the revolution
We call the truth a lie
Too much got lost in translation

    Song MeaningObviously, this is about Communication.

    I think the translation he speaks about is not one spoken language to another but the problem with any spoken language, that if you try to translate your feelings and emotions into words, no matter how hard and poetic you try, you never quite get it.

    The "vibrations of a string" that "become a sound" are the vocal cords in his throat that form the words he speaks. And these words come "from my heart to your ears".

    So he is talking to someone trying to explain his feelings, and realizing it won't work he has to admin that to much gets "lost in translation". But still, whatever it is he says, it is something sad, cause his word make the recipient cry: "transforming words to tears".

    Great Song, this one.
