En ensam kvinna söker en man
Svar till: Hjärtat talar sant
En pessimist i sitt livs form
Jag vädrar blod, det luktar sorg

En utomjordings kärlekstörst
En undran vem som svek vem först
Ät fett och socker tills du spyr
Eller blir en fyra-tonsmartyr
Sälj dig, sälj dig dyrt

Kom låna törnekronan min
Lid för konsten eller brinn
Jag slåss och håller kroppen varm
En dröm om mammas ömma famn

En utomjordings kärlekstörst
En undran vem som svek vem först
Och jag blir gärna en martyr
Vi behöver nog en ny
Sälj dig, sälj dig dyrt

Ett långfinger åt döden
Vi gick över lik
Och skylta' med vår kärlek,
vårt rika inre liv
Men plåtarna till himlen
var slut när vi kom dit
Och priset vi betalat
För att klassas som elit
Var att vi blev som dom andra
Vi blev som dom andra
Vi blev som dom andra

Och vi kommer inte längre
Vi är tillbaks på noll
Men ingen kommer sörja
Vi har spelat ut vår roll
Vi glömmer hela skiten
Det betyder ingenting
Vi skulle kommit längre
Men räckte inte till
Vi blev som dom andra
Vi blev som dom andra
Vi blev som dom andra

    General CommentHowever, it is becoming more and more common to simply write 'dom' instead of 'de/dem' in swedish, seeing as both are pronounced 'dom' anyway.
    Where did the IT thing come into it? Step away from the computer for a minute and then listen to it. Isn't it just about a relationship gone bad? They tried to be so much better, but in the end, they became just like "dom andra" (the others, i.e. everyone else).... opening line, 'a lonely woman seeks a man' am I missing something?

    General CommentI always thought this one was about the IT boom and the guys who thought it would transform them into superheroes, but also found they had to conform when the big money moved in ("The price we had to pay/ to count as an elite/ was to rub elbows with the rest/ to be like the rest...")

    General CommentI've always been annoyed with the title of this song... it's "De andra", not "Dom andra", damnit!

    (No, it's not wrong here, the song itself is mistitled.)

    General CommentI dont think this song is about a relationship, but rather about a generation of people that became "just like everybody else", i think there is a few other examples of the same thing in their other songs. A feeling that you wanted to amount to so much and you wanted alot in your life but in the end it turned out ordinary.

    The title is grammatically incorrect in written swedish yes, however alot of what makes Kents lyrics good is the way they manage to use a mixture of quite ehm .. poetic phrases and spoken language. The lyrics are simply written out the way they are being said.

    General CommentPartly, I think this song is about a relationship, but I also belive that it's about the whole generation, like someone said before me. In the Kent documentary (Så nära får ingen gå) Jocke says something like: "[Eskilstuna]..it was a city where you always had to look over your shoulder. You had to be careful not to be too special, to be ordinary was the most beautiful thing you could be" (not a exact translation).
    Do anyone see where I want to come? In the end, you become like everybody else, when you have no strength to fight left..

    General CommentFor me, this is clearly about a generation; 70-talisterna. Its looking back at ones own youthful enthusiam through the knowledge that not just did we turn out like our parents unlike our dead set expectation and struggle - but our parents probably didn't think that -they- would either.

    In some ways it is a very pessimistic observation, in others it could perhaps speak of the peace one could feel when not racing to have people begging you to take over the world..buddhism?

    General CommentSorry english speaking people-
    Mener sangen handler om tiden etter 45, og sosialdemokratiet.
    Man ville beskytte drømmen om en slags nasjonalsosialistisk samfunn som ble spist opp av internasjonalismen- nå er vi som de andre, nå er vi som de andre (noen syns det er trist)
    egenarten vi hadde i Norden
