"Goodbye" as written by Kalle Koivisto, Kalle Chydenius, Kari Myohanen, Laura Narhi, Teemu Nordman and Marko Soukka....
You can call me anything
Now that we are even
And it's oh so quiet
Quiet as if the both of us were afraid to say
The only thing there is to say
It'll be tomorrow if not today

But still I see you the way I used to
Beautiful, impossible
You had my heart removed by laser
All these feelings wrap their arms 'round me

You can tell me anything
Now that it is over
And we can laugh about it
And we laugh about all the fun
We laugh about everyone
We laugh about all the things unsaid, undone

But still I see you the way I used to
Beautiful, impossible
You had my heart removed by laser
All these feelings wrap their arms 'round me

    My InterpretationGreat song about the role of social relations within a theory of historical materialism.

    In the first stanza and chorus, the burghers rise above their erstwhile equals, the proletariat, creating disparity of power relations sparked by technological improvements ("removed by laser"). The proletariat, while they are forced to labour under the new capitalist class, continue to see the equality of humanity as being more important than differences in wealth ("you can call me anything" because of the brotherhood of man and the newly created bourgeois democracy grants them equal rights on the surface, "now that we are even"). The end of the strife between the feudal classes ("it's oh so quiet") is only an interlude before the strife between the new classes, capitalist and proletariat, which will culminate in the socialist revolution in the future ("it'll be tomorrow if not today").

    In the second stanza, after the revolution, the now classes society can finally enjoy technological post-scarcity and the illusion of equality in bourgeois society is replaced with genuine equality. The chorus is repeated as techology forces more change, unpredictable now, upon the world socialist state.
