Fovamai ola afta pou tha ginoun gia mena – English lyrics

In front of you the lights of the city
waiting for the excavations
and the cages with the birds that are sleeping placed in a row
And I, who haven’t learned yet who I am
a tired guard without a perspective
And you will turn off
one of the lights, to sleep with someone who looks like me
So that the iron of the cages
will be lost for a second in the darkness.

I am afraid of all what will happen for me without me

My clothes are old and cannot stand any more
holes on the knees from the bows
pockets torn from the change
broken zippers, communicating failure
My body is full of bruises
in the cold like a mistake
that no one accepts
is wandering and is asking for your warmth.

I am afraid of all what will happen for me without me

Your cement (house) is new
with all shiny furniture
and white marbles
and a shiness that blocks your eyes
and doesn’t allow you any room
and I am the only one from there that rots as if in an ancient tomb
Relics were found there
except for me, and in a secret crypet
I am looking for you to resurrect me

I am afraid of all what will happen for me without me

My clothes are old and are falling
like failed goverments
I grew old with a childish pair of paints
and the ship hasn’t come yet
I am squeezing you because I am cold
my body is a path where public works are taking place
drills are opening and closing me
Pull the curtains for a while to see me
I became the take off run for military planes
and my mind is a warehouse for radioactive residues
The took security measures for my breath
and on an international one way road, the gave my future for consideration

I am afraid of all what will happen for me without me

So I live my past in advance
and with two naked wires for arms
I embrace your high volts for a last time

I am afraid!
