Ishmael (Ismael)

Englisch Übersetzung

Ishmael

Versionen : #1#2#3#4

I was born in a snowstorm
I guess it was cold
There are no witnesses from that day

And I grew up quickly
From my childhood that was all
I was born already beaten

There was nowhere to run
No one dared go
You ran for cover, hid yourself

There is nothing here that can get you to understand
Let the past be forgotten

I lied carelessly, it's a built-in flaw
You can't put honor that doesn't exist on the line

I see a future where
I could be something big
So blow a kiss and fill my quota
You think out loud
And scream quietly
And hold your breath through the monologue
That was written for your inner voice
You sounded exactly like Ishmael
Do you remember Ishmael?
I am your Ishmael

You said "I long for 1997"
I said "Do you want to give up, is that your choice?"

I was born in a hospital
Where people mostly came to die
Who cares about your 90s?

It took 25 years of misunderstanding
It took 25 years to even come this far

I see a future where I could be something big
So blow a kiss and fill my quota
You think quietly and scream loudly
Memorizing the entire monologue
That was written for your inner voice
You sounded exactly like Ishmael
Do you remember Ishmael?
I am your Ishmael

Ishmael was a biblical figure, I think. I'm not religious though, so I can't say any more about it.
