They've decided to own the world tonight, create the standard, now roll the reel.
Ambush the poor, take what they have to create a warlike feel (turn the page)

A vision, resolution, friends and allies, easy come
The golden moments, our lifestyle depends on your children, we're doomed if

the war is over, all is lost
Down the drain, keep fingers crossed
Hope the World forgets or the World forgives
Charm their minds and hearts, once more,
For me.

Use the time in the public eye
"How we love you so"
Now people, you should know, who's your foe
Who's your friend, your enemy?
The Enemy!

"Yes, you are needed, so badly wanted.
If we wish to live in peace, we need to fight, it demands a sacrifice."
New blood is gathered, donations needed.
Every day, one soul away of your fulfillment, the necessity.

Unplug the damaged toys, all amputated souls
For everything is over for them, we cannot
Use a man, who's lost a hand,
The education paid in full, as planned

Did you hear, they say, the ground they walk's always been holier than mine.
- Oiling the wheels with fire
The only, the righteous, the privileged ones, the law, and the almighty power.
- Burning the fields for one flower.
[A:]
What was black is now blue, nothing much is really new
On the eve of Hell on Earth you walk the reddish snow.
A chain of command lacks the balls to right the wrong, you proclaim
They always only change the cadency, the song remains the same.
[B:]
Kaikkivoipaiselta itsevaltiaalta avaimet elämään.
Kahlehdimme ainoamme oikeudesta turvaan pysyvään.
Itsevaltiaamme ääni korvissamme, lainan lunastamme,
äideillemme muiston marmoriin.

You made our babies go where no parent can follow.
The song remains the same
“For die we must”, our heirs say. Drowning in sorrow forever left hollow...

The bullets you created, shall be used against you, by the people,
All the things you buried will be excavated and re-animated
Fear the future, fear the creed,
We all can see what's been concealed
Together we stand alone behind the lines
With our bare bones

One, two, three, four, what the hell're we fighting for, now
Five, six, lucky seven,
Stripmine your private road to hell.

Had we known how this ends in our defeat. I wonder…
Would we still have given you all the children you would ever need.

Always washed their minds, clean and white
Like papers you have signed
And people, a single mind, you feed the beast
Thus create a warlike feel

    General Commentgood song from a fantastic album :)
    translation of the finnish section:

    From the all-benevolent leader the keys to life.
    We chain our only (things) for a safe place.
    With our leader's voice in our ears, we redeem the debt,
    for our mothers to the marble of memory.

    ...yeah, doesn't make much sense in finnish either :P

    General CommentI think this is a stab at Bush and the war in Iraq because countries like Finland and Sweden are also sending, "children" there because of NATO (I have a friend in Norway who was conscripted, he was only 18). I think it's asking why countries are fighting Bushs's battle when the, "war is lost."

    "One, two, three, four, what the hell're we fighting for, now
    Five, six, lucky seven,
    Stripmine your private road to hell.

    Had we known how this ends in our defeat. I wonder…
    Would we still have given you all the children you would ever need."


    I'm pretty certain that it is Bush saying, "the enemy."

    General CommentI didn't think the voice saying "The Enemy" had an American accent...

    However, I have to say: I can't stop listening to this song. It's so powerful!

    To me, the main message is about how people in power use poorer people like tools, sacrificing their lives and indoctrinating them in the propaganda of war in order to maintain their own positions. It really disgusts me, because I know it's true - it's human nature. Sometimes we're not very nice...

    General CommentHi everyone, cheers from Brazil!

    This piece is amazing!
    And, for some reason, it's a bit underrated and forgotten song...

    It's an awesome critic to the "culture of war imposed by the leaders of the nation", as they made it feel.

    Great analogies and constructions. And I just love how they are so good to make very profound and poetic lyrics and match them so nicely to the song dynamics...

    Song MeaningThe first time I heard this I thought of the crusades. Now looking back it still seems as if the song is focused around them saying that religious wars will have backlashes.
