Ultima Thule - Stolt (English translation)

Proofreading requested
English translation

Proud

I have traveled over plains
Left my tracks in the snow
I have slept in the forest
And at nighttime found peace therein
For wherever I have rested
My soul has been safe
But now my heart's in anguish
I wake up and die again
 
Proud - Should you not be
Decadence is all you have
Proud - You damage everything
Hiding your name in shame
Proud - My right to exist
Proud and without shame
 
What we have here, time and again
Why does everything sound so fake
Why this rage about our welfare
Why is everyone in a rage
At nighttime here I can now hear
Lost souls crying for help
I see the shriveled bodies
Look, how they fall apart
 
Proud - Should you not be
Decadence is all you have
Proud - You damage everything
Hiding your name in shame
Proud - My right to exist
Proud and without shame
 
So we begin to stack the straws
As our country calls upon us
We beg and plead like slaves
With tears in our hands
The feeling called pride
And to give your all for it
The feeling called pride
You insist that it is wrong
 
Proud - My right to exist
Proud and without shame
Proud - My right to exist
Proud and without shame
Proud

If you have corrections. i will consider them if they are made in a courteous way, including stanza and line, and what it is that needs to be replaced. If you only type one or two words into the comment box, without giving the location, I will simply ignore it.
-------------------------------------------------------------
Another option is you correct the entire song and paste it so I can in turn copypaste it, which is less work for me. You can also take my translation and make your own translation using mine as a basis.
------------------------------------------------------------
If you start a fight over commas, apostrophes, grammar, syntax, lower and upper case, english dialects that you don't understand cause your english is just too poor, as it has now happened for the last couple weeks constantly. I promise you soon as you start monkeying around and bossing me around with your comments that I can't delete. I will delete the translation instead. and Keep it on my computer where it belongs.
