Dead in Copenhagen Lyrics

2. Dead in Copenhagen (4:15)
About the utter failure that occurred in Copenhagen in December 2009.

On the first day morning….
The winter sun is rising on this cold city
Where our future will be judged
Decision makers from each country
And much too grudge

Drawing the future in your golden planes…
Please remember we are living in the same plains…
Standing still
Watching you… waiting for… a new deal
We just ask you to share the bill
For us the damages are already… real…

Chorus:
You had the power
To turn the tide
What have you done with your cash and your damn pride?

What a cold shower!
The hope of us all
Is fading away like a last station call

What have you done?

Each of your wrong, but mighty, decision
Guided by financial considerations
Is one punch more in my face
Is one bomb more in my place
In my life…

Discussions? Negotiations?
We needed a common healing
It has just been another meeting
A matter of life and death?
A matter of financial health?

Are you really conscious that you are unconscious?
Will our hopes… fall again?
Condemning the climate and also the precious… Link… The precious Chain

You fools!
You’re no leaders – you are traders!
I can’t “keep cool”
Cos’ we can’t wait another year…
For you a billion dollars… is just loose change… as are our lives!...

[Chorus]

Do you know Me?
(I’m) dead in Copenhagen
Do you see Me?
(I’m) dead in Copenhagen

Wind & Words
Talking like windmills
Trading for… the right to kill
Dying – drowning

Oh please, catch my hand…
My Forest is soon to be destroyed – flooded
My Island is soon to be destroyed - flooded
What become of our hope?
…A might have been

For you, my land is just a holidays place…
My ocean, my river… a swimming pool…

Water… It used to feed us…
It’s now killing us…
Water… Is rising
Anger… Is increasing
Soon we’ll have to be confronted with the walls… of the cemented Cemetery

[Chorus]

Do you know Me? I’m living far away
Dead in Copenhagen
Do you see Me? ‘Cos I’m on your way
Dead in Copenhagen

With you!

Now my war is lost…
I’m down… I drown…
I hope you’ll be luckier than me…
I was just a poor fisherman
