Hypocrites' Parade (Hycklarnas Parad)

English translation

Hypocrites' Parade

Bereft of another truth
Laid in shackles by a beast
All words are not liked equally
Other seed is drowned in the fumes of fire
The double-tongued are speaking
Giving orders far and wide
The truths that were disclosed
Have yet to be seen
 
So we protect this word
It acquits us and it is law
An Observer in time
Beholding the hypocrites' parade
So we protect this word
Despite the treacherous blows
An Observer in time
Beholding the hypocrites' parade
 
Some are being abused
Others simply are kept clean
Though the firmly written law
Applies to each and everyone
Among rabble-rousing journalists
I have seen a sub-species
Where there's a shooter there's a hammer (1)
Supposing that some get it right
 
So we protect this word
It acquits us and it is law
An Observer in time
Beholding the hypocrites' parade
So we protect this word
Despite the treacherous blows
An Observer in time
Beholding the hypocrites' parade
 
Hungering for truth
Hungering for power
The ends justify the means
Sincerely I have put it:
A circus, a circus
A circus is all I see
What is truth and what is gossip
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx (X)
 
So we protect this word
It acquits us and it is law
An Observer in time
Beholding the hypocrites' parade
So we protect this word
Despite the treacherous blows
An Observer in time
Beholding the hypocrites' parade
