Faithful to the sun, moon and stars
I will my sword when I am all forgotten
The duel of the dynamite's here
And we welcome it with all we have to offer

You'll see the day
But when, my love, I cannot say
My eyes are so tired
My legs, they can barely carry me

So here's the time for pain
My love feels like the pouring rain
My love don't last throughout the day
I wouldn't mind the lack of change
Anyway

But I'm no longer safe in my home
So I'm leaving you to write my happy story
Don't behave the way that you should
You should leave it 'till the thugs and all their glory

You'll hear me say
That I can change in every way
Your eyes are so tired
Your legs, they can barely carry you

So here's the time for pain
My love feels like the pouring rain
My love don't last throughout the day
I wouldn't mind the lack of change
Anyway
So here's the train
My love feels like the pouring rain
My love don't last throughout the day
I wouldn't mind the lack of change
Anyway

    General CommentI'd say it's 'the duel of the dynamite', without the scene.
    and I'm not sure about 'so is the time for pain'
    it would make more scene when 'so it's the time for pain' is used...
    also I'm not sure about 'my love feels like the pouring rain', could also be 'my love is like the pouring rain'.
    very hard to hear.

    but you did already a good job ^_^
    it's a beautiful song, I saw them live two days ago, amazing band, wonderful songs

    General CommentThere's definately somehting after "The Duel of the Dynamite" after I listened to it, it might be "see?". It kind of makes sense like that. Thanks for pointing out the "it's" not "is", poor typing on my behalf. But I am pretty sure it's "feels". In one of the lines it's sounds a little sketchy, but in the other ones, it sounds just like "feels" to me. There a still a few spots where it doesn't sound right. And I wouldn't think Mando Diao would write lyrics that didn't make sense.
    But thanks for the feedback!

    General CommentI don't think this song is about what I think, but let me share it:
    If there was a worldwide conflict, like a World War III., no one would survive it probably. It would probably be a duel (between Russia and the USA) => Duel of the dynamitee. You'd have to fight, even though you'd be more faithful to yourself and mother Earth (moon, stars and sun) than to the country you'd have to represent. This story is being told by a soldier who is tired ("my eyes are so tired, my legs they can barely carry me"). And he has no will to fight with "the thugs", so he's leaving.
    Also seems as an apocalyptical song to me....like the end of the world, God is destroying the sinful Earth inhabitants, stars are falling from the sky and you and your love are trying to find a shelter, though you know you won't survive till the next day. There is also a sign of improving yourself, being a better man, like the bad ones must die and the good ones will be saved and now it's the last chance to switch to good(to "leave your home").
    "But I'm no longer safe in my home
    So I'm leaving you to write my happy story
    Don't behave the way that you should
    You should leave it 'till the thugs and all their glory"

    Anyway, I think tricksiness is right and its about Gustaf being beaten.

    General Commentok this is very random but this song reminds me of "train on fire", mostly in terms of the tone and whatnot.

    yeah it seems pretty depressed and its very haunting so i think he's beaten...
