Fifty Years Later Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level Rousseau
1. Will You Believe Me? (1:20)
Year 2060 – An old man is crying…

Oh… We have lost our way… Somewhere….

All his life he’s been an honest man
And he has…
Never thought it would come to this
As you do…
If we go back in time will you change?
And understand…?
Will you believe me…?
I’m dead in Copenhagen…
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
3. The Frozen Will (3:59)
A small apartment where all the lights are turned off…
There is just the pale of the city around
The murmur of the cars running aground
The countless cold walls of…

This great city… overcrowded…
Where leisure is unlimited
But amongst restaurants and drones
It’s the best place to feel alone…

Her feet and her heart are frozen, she’s on the floor
Oh how she wishes someone’s knocking at her door…

Too many blows into her face…
She has lost the will to run the race…
Don’t stay Alone With your thoughts
Locked into her room without a light
She’s diving into an eternal night

Come… look at me…
Do you think… you could free me and…?

Chorus:
Free – the will inside of me
The fire sleeping deeply –
I am frozen

In darkness
She’s aching… She’s crying…
Her thoughts have the colour of the night

We will try to understand your fears
We will try to understand your tears
Still you’ve got some cards to play
We’ll take the time to refloat your ship…
To bring back a smile to your lips
We’ll take the time to refloat your ship…
To bring back the will to continue the trip!

Come… look at me…
Do you think… you could free me and…?

[Chorus]

Light
Then we will spend the right time with you
We’ll speak and maybe we’ll argue too
But we hope it will relight your flame
And maybe ours will do the same

Toward Renaissance
Free – the will inside of me
The fire sleeping deeply
I am frozen

Free…. Free The Fire… Free The Fire!

[Chorus]

Freed – the will inside of me
is now burning intensely
I rise again is now burning intensely
I rise again
4. These Trees (5:04)
Dedicated to Francis Hallé and all the people fighting for trees…

Falling… One by one..

Losses…
Green…
Used to be your horizon
As far as the eye can see
But now the walls of the prison
Are closing in

Down…
Another one is falling down…I can’t take
We must try to save the earth’s gown
And I will fight for…

…Their roots are ours

Chorus:
Down to the forest, it’s a fantasy
I felt down – I’m now feeling high
Let be breathe… in their arms
Let me take a last photohraph.

And I will fight for these trees
Yes I will fight for these trees
Till death!!!!!!!

Tell me you understand
Tell me you’ll join me

Into our everyday life
We are playing with…
A great fork and great knife
The Hunger of the…

…Town! It’s the hunger of the town
As big, as endless as ours
We all want everything
…every thing…

A phone for a tree…
There won’t be something for everyone

Stop!... stop the destroying process…
Before we reach checkmate
Stop it! Before it is too late!
Oh Please, please…

From Rio to Congo
The Same tragedy
From Tokyo
to New York city

Open your eyes now
Let’s Kiss the Bark
Before it’s dark

[Chorus]

Tell me you understand
Tell me you’ll join me

Rise and fight
Come With me!
Change With me!
And shout!
And Act!

For the forest, for the trees!
For us…

[Chorus]

Fight for this green paradise
It’s the light shining in your eyes
Burning it, it’s burning your life
Yours and those to come…

And I will fight for these trees
Yes I will fight for these trees
Till death!!!!!!!

Tell me you understand
Tell me you’ll join me

What if I fail?...
5. The Herd (4:38)
Life is party…
And nothing else matters
Welcome to the party!
Drink, eat, and enjoy…
Forget your worries
Dance and forget
Dance and don’t think
Don’t think…
All your life…
No break!
Happiness, Unconcern, Decadence…
And you simplify your vision
It’s easier than a revolution…
It’s easier than an evolution…
It’s easier than changing your life…
It’s easier than thinking about your life…

Wake up! Now!!

Chorus 1
Our active laziness
A murder in silence
The Herd with mindlessness
Is trampling our chance

The easy way
You keep on saying:
“The fight is already lost…”
“No time to waste with all these bullshits”
“Politicians? They’re all the same, don’t bother me with that!”

Forever is desire… Lost!
“To have and play” …to pay…
ideo games, Movies, facebook… your
life… The life where you’re hiding – Your blinkers…
You’re on the razor fire
(You’re) abusing science
(Just) living for today
And no regrets
You wash it all away
You don’t want to be bothered
But Life is not “The Love Boat”…
Wake up! Now!!

Chorus 3
That’s pure insanity
Promoted and spurred
You’re passively guilty
You’re within the Herd!

Now try to… Think differently
Now try to… Live differently

Always other people and never you?
Take a new look at yourself too
Ask yourself: “Am I in the herd?”
Like I ask to myself: “Am I in the herd?”
Ask yourself… Like I do…

Well… I try to…
6. Fisherman's Day (3:08)
Lost in the key on the fisherman’s day
Will we recover it, I couldn’t say…
Black is the sea in this heavenly bay
All he can do now is kneel down and pray

There’s a boat, floating… disemboweled…
A page is turned… And I leave…

Giants were the trawlers who raped the seabed
Tons of cadavers have painted it red
Most of them, not graded, killed for nothing
Synthetic jellyfish are proliferating
While the uprooted coral is fading

There’s a flash, floating… disemboweled…

Faraway fisherman on your frail skiff
The cities have vomited over the cliff
And you have been hit by a stray bullet
With all the fish that once filled your net

There’s a man, floating… disemboweled…

Lost is the key on the fisherman’s day
Deep in the waters where he used to play
All he can do now is kneel down and pray
Under the gentle stroke of the spray

There are fates, floating… disemboweled…

Lost in the key on the fisherman’s day
Will we recover it, I couldn’t say…
Black is the sea in this heavenly bay
All he can do now is kneel down and pray

Fisherman’s day
The judgment day
The first of all…. to fall
Who will follow?

It’s the beginning of the fall
7. Against the Sand (4:07)
When two hearts unite to fight the ourglass…

Our landscape was so forlorn
That we have fought since we were born
For what we thought to be worthy
First, we did it separately

And Then we met… and united
And so we have become stronger
With our two hearts ignited
Beating the rhythm together
My love…

But now the years have passed by…
And so they give us up for dead
It is harder I cannot lie
But in our sky, there is no red
My love…

Our hands…. Have become one
For so many years now
And so have got old together

It used – to be so easy
We used – to be so strong
The beat of the song
Is now getting fast… and heavy

Holding the rope
Hope against hope
We will face the slope

Do not lose your grip
Hold on, Let it rip!

Oh my love…

Chorus 1
Take a rest upon my shoulder
I know that…
“When We Were Younger
We were much stronger”

Stand!
But we will
Stand – till the end – with the energy of despair
Stand – while reason is here
Stand until the final breath takes away the last word
We are not dead yet!

Come on! My friend!
Come on!
Let’s do it! Let’s do it!
Take That Bend
And Till the end
We’ll stand as one
So our memories last forever

Fight against waste
And laziness
Fight against the law…
…Of the sand… falling
Like a guillotine
Hurry up!

Chorus 2
Raging like we were teenagers
We’re getting older
We’re getting stronger

[Stand!]

Taken into the sandstorm….
But our fight has not ended
We’ll fight for what we believe in.
What is left to achieve is bigger than ever
But we will stand and we will do it together
My love…

Chorus 3
Take a rest upon my shoulder
We’ll face together
The sandstorm anger

Stand 2
And we will
Stand until the storm carries away the
Dust of our bones – into a spiral to the
Skies where all the words that we have said are echoing, but…
We are not dead yet!

We’ll face together
The sandstorm anger
8. Any Hypothesis (9:29)
During all these times of hope and despair…
While writing all these lyrics…
While sleeping …. In my dreams… In my nightmares….
While watching… the world…the words…
I’ve been led to think about…why…life!
Its origins, its meaning, its end…
Space and infinity…

And all these little things…

And as a kind of conclusion, I come to the assessment that…
…That the place where all the things we still don’t know, or well, the things we can’t even understand, is a great playground for our imagination. A wall on which anything can be written
Make up your own mind!

Part 1 – Dizzy:
Are we… living?
The answer’s… lost

Is there a trial
On which we can sail… on…?

Is there a Grail?

Space is bending
Time is a ring
On which we can dance

The sun is shining
A star is watching
Over you….

Part 2 – Hypothesis:
The Origins
Was the clay fertile?
Children of The Nile?
Tell…Me….Now!!
A God? A magician?
Tell…Me….Now!!
The Chance on a mission

Subject of an experiment
There’s a scientist… looking at you!

The reality of the world
Are we the atoms of a bigger brain?
Are there other worlds floating in our veins?
Are we in a chain?
What…is there?
Around our universe
Take me to a new… truth!
On these ways…

I’m carried away

Chorus
Oh the haze! of what we cannot conceive
A veil over the world
A veil? A wall! Any Hypothesis
Is allowed on this wall

Come with me, at the speed of light
Beyond the stars it’s quite a sight

With my Spirit
I can move things with my spirit
And I know where is the Stargate
That’s simple, just try to do it.
You just need to concentrate

Fictions
Maybe I’m… An avatar
Maybe I could seed a thought…
Is… my mind… a liar?
Are we in a matrix? Caught!

Was Jesus… a smoothie?
Or a supreme being?

[Chorus]

Thought after thought
Experiment after experiment
Different observations
And Different conclusions

Outer space
We’re not the only living beings
There are aliens, like us they’re wondering:
How are theses strange creatures, are they mean.
Are they smarter? Are they dumb and green?

Let’s sink
Let’s sink into the labyrinth of imagination
Of thoughts, of dreams. Of time, of space…

…Void…

From The Void…
Oh… Where are we?

In the thoughts… of a dreamer
And in the universe?
In the center?
In a corner?

Where is the truth?
Tell me the truth!

Message
The stars have a message for you
Your palm has a message for you

Heavy Thoughts
But after all…
After all…

All These ideas
These hypotheses
Are they any worth?
While…
…We don’t know: Do we have…?

Limits…
Several chances like a flower?
That withers and grows again
One more try after the winter?
Deleted when the computer….will… crash…?

[Chorus]

It’s raging – Deep in my heart
It’s raging – Deep in my art
It’s raging – Without avail!

[Chorus]

Lots of questions remains…
I’m getting crazy…

Where is the truth?

Tell me the truth!
Is there a truth?
Is there a truth?
Sure there is, let me tell you…
Is there someone to answer me?
Is there a life?
Do you know the sense of life?
Is there is a sense to life?
A new world’s born at each instant.
There are many parallel worlds
Is it a never-ending story?
Or is there an end?
Is there a life… after life?
9. Just Before the Silence (5:10)
To Maria do Espirito Santo and José Claudio Ribeiro

The day has finally come
Give me air, I need some…
This letter in my hand
I’m staring at my land
With tears in my eyes

Take…my…life…
Take my life!
I have no regrets for the things that I’ve done
But their minds are on the run
Now my body’s caught in this strange vibration
I need a salvation
Right now!
My friends, I need you!

Chorus
Time knows the score – and plays with my nerves
I can’t speak no more – losing all my verve
Oh damn!
My breath is short – I really need your support
Sing with me!
My breath is short – I really need your support
Sing with me! Sing with me!

My mind is upside down
I am feeling very down
(I) Fear the banknote and the gun
And the burn of the sun

She said:
“I know I’m gonna die
I’ll watch you from the sky
Now stand up and be strong!
Write and complete my song”

I have no regrets for the things that
I’ve done (Salvation)
But their minds are on the run (Damnation)
Now my body’s caught in this strange vibration (Madness calls)

I need a salvation
Right now!
My friends, I need you!

[Chorus]

My nerves can be seen by all
My heart can be heard by all

It’s louder and louder
It’s not me any longer

Is it my turn?

Ahhhhhhhhhh – Wasting our time
Ahhhhhhhhhh – Wasting our time

The speaker says….
On this morning
Another one
Has been found dead on the high street
A leaf has been left upon his mouth like warning… a threat.
If you’re on my way… on the highway…
You’re gonna die!!!!!

When will it happen?
I can feel a presence.

I say I’m not worried at all…
But I’m anxious…so anxious…

Don’t leave me alone!
Come with me and…
Wash away the sweat from my temples
Oh! Stay with me! – Stay with me!
Take a seat and wait with me a little
Oh! Stay with me! – Stay with me!

Everybody lives it differently, that’s my way.
Sing with me! – Sing with me!
Please help me to face my very last days,
Oh please: Oh! Sing with me! – Sing with me! Sing!!!

[Chorus]
10. Fifty Years Later (7:26)
What might happen…

I wander through ruins…
The land where we were born…
Has been trashed and torn!

The Magic of the rainforest,
The smiles of its residents,
Victims of an incest
So-called “Accidents”…

Chorus
Religions and Men,
Euros, Dollars, Yen….
Have Written “The End”
With their bloody pen…

We thought we were kings
With endless futures
Everything’s falling
Fifty years later…

The mines are empty
And so is the sea
Bees and flowers have passed….

Everywhere people are walking aimlessly…
Trying to live without trees
How long will it last?

Lands have been drained
On their skins….nothing will….ever grow again!

Chorus
Religions and Men,
Euros, Dollars, Yen….
Have Written “The End”
With their bloody pen…

We thought we were kings
With endless futures
Everything’s falling
Fifty years later…

Eternally
We’ll regret our history
The last snow and the last tree
Will live in our memories
‘Til we die…

God if you’re here…
Oh please please: “Take me – take me
Far from this cemetery”
In deep space will ring loudly
Eternal cries

Looking around…
Sometimes we call all this an “Act of God”
It is one way of not feeling guilty
Then you just have to accept it and nod
But do we believe it… sincerely?

These acts, these disasters have multiplied
Like as many signals that we have missed
Incredulous when the fisherman died
Paris, Tokyo, New-York, Pompeï, Atlantis…

We’ve been jesters…
We’ve wasted it…
We’re sorry mother, if…
We’ve forced you to call it quits…

Chorus
Religions and Men,
Euros, Dollars, Yen….
Have Written “The End”
With their bloody pen…

We thought we were kings
With endless futures
Everything’s falling
Fifty years later…

Eternally
We’ll regret our history
The last snow and the last tree
Will live in our memories
‘Til we die…

God if you’re here…
Oh please please: “Take me – take me
Far from this cemetery”
In deep space will ring loudly
Eternal cries

The end…
I’m just asking for a little breeze
Just to dry an old man tears…
But the wind has gone with all the trees
I’m left with all my fears…

Alone… in Fifty years…

Tell me I am wrong…
PROVE TO ME! I am wrong

Give me some reason to hope…
