"Traitor" as written by Bj�rk Gudmundsdottir, Einar Benediktsson, Fridrik Erlingsson, Bragi Olafsson, Sigtryggur Baldursson and Thor Eldon Jonsson....
But, I?ll teach the little angles
I?ll take the harp away
But I?ll teach them how to use the harmonica
I?ll just do something like....

My punctuality is well known
When the revolution takes place
I?ll be late and
I?ll be shot as a traitor

When the sun rises

When the sun rises
I will not see
I regret nothing
It was worth it
Going through life without a timepiece
Did pay off

The sun rises

My reward to be free
And alone even now at the pillar
Blindfold at sunrise
Hearing the drums
Of catalan beating my time away

The sun rises I will not see

My heartbeat keeps time
With the drums.
But soon my only pulse will fade away

The sun rises I will not see

I smile just knowing
When the sun rises
I will not see.

    General Commentthis is one of the best songs ever written. I am not sure exactly what it means, but my favorite lines are:
    "I smile just knowing When the sun rises I will not see."

    I think it's about being perse/(exe)cuted for your beliefs and/or insincerity, but keeping your convictions and not using a facade. It is a song about martyrdom.

    oh yeah, catalan is a romance language spoken by people of catalonia (in spain i believe, but also in other nations like italy's island sardenia).
