The Future

Give me back my broken night
my mirrored room, my secret life
it's lonely here
there's no one left to torture
Give me absolute control
over every living soul
And lie beside me, baby
that's an order

Give me crack and anal sex
Take the only tree that's left
and stuff it up the hole
in your culture
Give me back the Berlin wall
give me Stalin and St Paul
I've seen the future, brother
it is murder.

Things are going to slide, slide in all directions
Won't be nothing
Nothing you can measure anymore
The blizzard, the blizzard of the world
has crossed the threshold
and it has overturned
the order of the soul
When they said REPENT REPENT
I wonder what they meant
When they said REPENT REPENT
I wonder what they meant
When they said REPENT REPENT
I wonder what they meant

You don't know me from the wind
you never will, you never did
I'm the little jew
who wrote the Bible
I've seen the nations rise and fall
I've heard their stories, heard them all
but love's the only engine of survival
Your servant here, he has been told
to say it clear, to say it cold:
It's over, it ain't going
any further
And now the wheels of heaven stop
you feel the devil's riding crop
Get ready for the future:
it is murder.

Things are going to slide ...

There'll be the breaking of the ancient
western code
Your private life will suddenly explode
There'll be phantoms
There'll be fires on the road
and the white man dancing
You'll see a woman
hanging upside down
her features covered by her fallen gown
and all the lousy little poets
coming round
tryin' to sound like Charlie Manson
and the white man dancin'.

Give me back the Berlin wall
Give me Stalin and St Paul
Give me Christ
or give me Hiroshima
Destroy another fetus now
We don't like children anyhow
I've seen the future, baby:
it is murder.

Things are going to slide

When they said REPENT REPENT

O Futuro

Me dê de volta minha noite quebrada
Meu quarto espelhado, minha vida secreta
está solitário aqui,
não há mais ninguém para torturar
Me dê controle absoluto
sobre toda alma viva
E deite ao meu lado, baby
isso é uma ordem

Me dê crack e sexo anal
Leve a unica árvore que sobrou
e soque no buraco
na sua cultura
Dê-me de volta o muro de Berlin
dê-me Stalin e St Paul
Eu vi o futuro, irmão
é assassinato

Coisas irão deslizar, deslizar em todas direções
Não será nada
Nada que você poderá medir
A nevasca, a nevasca do mundo
Cruzou o limiar
e derrubou
a ordem da alma
Quando eles disseram Arrependei-vos Arrependei-vos
Eu me pergunto o que elas significavam
Quando eles disseram Arrependei-vos Arrependei-vos
Eu me pergunto o que elas significavam
Quando eles disseram Arrependei-vos Arrependei-vos
Eu me pergunto o que elas significavam

Você não me conhece do vento
você nunca conhecerá, nunca conheceu
Eu sou o pequeno judeu
que escreveu a Biblia
Eu vi nações subirem e descerem
Ouvi suas histórias, ouvi todas
mas o amor é o único mecanismo de sobrevivência
Seu sevo aqui, ele tem sido dito
para falar claro, para falar frio:
Acabou, isso não está
E agora as rodas do paraíso pararam
você sente o chicote do diabo
Prepare-se para o futuro:
é assassinato

Coisas irão deslizar...

Haverá a quebra do antigo
código ocidental
Sua vida privada irá de repente explodir
Haverá fantasmas
Haverá incêndios na estrada
e os homens brancos dançando
Você verá uma mulher
pendurado de cabeça para baixo
suas feições cobertas por seu vestido caído
e todos os vis poetas medíocres
tentando soar como Charlie Manson
e o homem branco dançando.

Dê-me de volta o muro de Berlin
dê-me Stalin e St Paul
Mê dê Cristo
ou Hiroshima
Destrua outro feto agora
Nós não gostamos de crianças de qualquer maneira
Eu vi o futuro, baby:
é assassinato.

Coisas irão deslizar...
