Solå står i zenith og håve henge lågt
i Gruvene på 16 er me i samme båt
Ved foten av fjellet kan du sjå me går
i takt med lenker rundt halsen, år etter år

Alt me fire ner i sjaktå av gull og grøn smaragd
havne rett i fanget på Henry blir det sagt
Det dryppe ikkje på oss. Me trenge ingen potter
for Henry er ikkje prest og ingen av oss er klokker

Sjøl ikkje Gud kan hørra oss når me ber i frå Helvete

Ivan la på sprang men kom aldri tilbake
Mange før han har prøvd å ta Henry av dage
Og ryktet fortelle at han som står med pisken
er rake motsetningen av en viss kristen

I Gruvene på 16 har me budd i fire år
men så snart sjangsen byr seg slår eg meg ut

    General CommentI'm Norwegian, and I tried to translate this song :P

    Bøn fra helvete - Prayer from hell

    The sun is in zenith and the head hangs low
    In the mines on 16 are we in the same boat
    By the foot of the mountain you can see me walk
    in measure with chains around my neck, year after year

    Everything we let down in the shaft of gold and green emerald
    ends right on Henry's lap, it's been told
    It doesn't drip on us. We don't need no potter
    because Henry is not a priest and none of us are bell ringers

    Not even God can hear us when we pray from hell

    Ivan started to run but he never came back
    Many before him have tried to take Henry's life
    And the rumour tells that he who stands with the whip
    is in sharp contrast with a certain christian

    We have lived in the mines on 16 for four years
    but as soon as the chance bids, I'll get out



    I hope you understand some more now, even though I can't write this lyrics in the same depth in English as it is in Norwegian....

    To me it sounds like it's telling a story of some slave workers who work for some corrupt authorities.
