Megalosa – Haris Alexiou – English Lyrics

I grew up
I was raised up
In the city monster
I drank a lot of fear, I drank pollution, I drank lies
I swallowed fat words
I slipped from my need to learn
I fooled my thirst to see…why I am here
I was raised up
With chemistry feelings, selling and buying
Looks of sympathy and pointless effort
To be nice
We?
We’re something else, we’re somebody else

Always talking about somebody else
Always talking about somebody else
Always talking about somebody else
So as not to hurt, so as to forget

I was raised up
Family monster
Nonsense kindness, phony obedience
A child actor okaying a grown up
I’m not talking about violence, I’m talking about rape
Being an adolescent means being in war
A muddy adolescence in the disgusting city
Then, a neurotic adult

Always talking about something else
Always talking about something else
Always talking about something else
So as not to hurt, so as to forget

I grew up
Otenet connection…
Sweets from Palette…
Then, to Silhouette…
We bury the pain with food
Compressed dreams, later depression
Ego freak, with wrecked nerves
Let’s hit the road, we always hit the road
Run away – it really hurts
I spit on you I kiss you – I don’t like you but I love you
Dementedly – ingeniously – superficially
Superficially – superficially – superficially
Land – We reached land – We reached land
Tears …oh my burning tears
Soften the pain
Tears…oh my sweet tears..organic cleansing

Always talking about something else (3x)
So as not to hurt, so as to forget

I grew up
Love before “L”
And below zero, my subconscious
Muddies its soil
Recycling my rotten fruits
I grew up
But the little child’s crying
Not knowing what’s his fault
Not knowing where to go
Bites his nails and wets his crib
“serves him right – Serves him right – serves him right”
His mother yelling
She gives him milk, she scolds him
That’s how she is going to raise him

Always talking about something else
So as not to hurt, so as to forget

I grew up
Growing up meaning – playing dumb
Living the absence
Having the power
Learning to laugh
Watching out
Making decisions
Not being allowed to lose
Growing up means
Living with what makes you sick
Building new homes
Taking tons of garbage out
Blaming others
Watching the morning talk shows
Listening to analysts
Being thirsty for bloody news
Saying yes saying no
Getting used to porn
Fighting from your couch
Being addicted to coffee

Always talking about something else
So as not to hurt, so as to forget

Growing up means
Facing the changes
Times cheating you
Your mind exploding
Needing to roost
Finding oasis in other people’s neurosis
People surrounded
By faces like yours
Bent knees
Haunted dreams

Always talking about something else
So as not to hurt, so as to forget
