Dawid Podsiadło - Nieznajomy (English translation)
Hello stranger, I have a question for you.
Is it too late to go back, to the roads which time has buried long ago.
Beyond the window a silence, the quietest I’ve ever known.
Like before a roof tearing storm.
Hello stranger, I don’t even know your name.
I look at you thinking: is that me after a few years?
Beyond the window the grey seeps into the black
Still you say nothing to me.
On this wasteland lives death
Is this just part of my dream?
The walls collapse, the windows shatter at once
I’m falling down through the errors of all my years
I see completely disappointed faces clearly
And in their eyes pain and hate of dormant events
I’ve lied more than I’d ever like to admit,
And in my veins blood flowed colder than steel.
That's why today I'm all alone
My stranger, do you see what I see?
How is it possible, that anyone believed me?
Seemingly honest, but never like today.
The same place, the same weary fear.
Among a crowd of people I rebound from the depths.
Farewell stranger, I no longer want your advice
