Kornati

Mračno nebo proždire snove.
Plamen bukti a zrak se izvija,
dok daješ sebe za tuđu budućnost.
 
Nad nama dvanaest svijeća, pod nama crn i hladan grob.
Sjećanja brzo blijede, sad kad nismo potrebni.
 
Život je često u tuđim rukama.
Crveno cvijeće rađa oko nas.
Što ostaje kad se pepeo slegne?
 
Nad nama dvanaest svijeća, pod nama crn i hladan grob.
Sjećanja brzo blijede, sad kad nismo potrebni.
 
Ovo nije borba za slobodu, ni za pravdu čovjeka.
To je borba za još jedno jutro, za tuđi svijet, za još jedan dan.
 
Nad nama dvanaest svijeća, pod nama crn i hladan grob.
Sjećanja brzo blijede, sad kad nismo potrebni.

Kornati

Dark sky devours dreams.
The flame is raging and the air distorting,
while you give yourself for other peoples future.
 
Above us twelve candles, under us a cold dark grave.
Memories fade fast, now that we are not needed.
 
Life is often in the hands of someone else.
Red flowers are sprouting around us.
What is left when the ash settles down?
 
Above us twelve candles, under us a cold dark grave.
Memories fade fast, now that we are not needed.
 
This is not a fight for freedom, nor for the justice of a man.
It's a fight for another morning, for someone elses world,for another day.
 
Above us twelve candles, under us a cold dark grave.
Memories fade fast, now that we are not needed.
