Rakasta vielä kun voit (English translation)

English translation

Love while you can

If I looked you in the eye
would you insult me to my face
If you could see how it stings
would you tear that sore open
 
Or are you writing words you can't stand behind
With your own name, written in stone, you wouldn't dare to do harm
 
Love while you can
Before the machines catch us
Love while you can
Do we know each other for real, i don't know, know
 
Somewhere in the distance, at the edge of a field, a mother's worrying
When you see a plane
Will it wipe you out
Across the seas, a heathen in uniform with a controller in their hand,
Red button, children at a field
It was given the wrong coordinates
 
Love while you can
Before the machines catch us
Love while you can
See, they're already taking our children
Love while you can
Before the machines catch us
Love while you can
Do we know each other for real, i don't know, know
 
The lonely may illuminate a house with the glow from a screen
But not a single object nor a channel is another human being
 
Love while you can
Before the machines catch us
Love while you can
Do we know each other for real, i don't know, know
 
Love while you can
Before the machines catch us
Love while you can
Do we know each other for real, i don't know, know

- this would've been... so much easier to translate if i had any idea what the heck they were singing about haha (are they just being Artistic or are they trying to make some silly point about spending too much time with electronics? ♫ en tiedä, tiedä ♪)
 
- the translation doesn't match up to the original (2016/5/24; atleast at the moment?) wrt lines and all since the orig. submission's punctuation & paragraphing is messy & lyrics being partially incorrect, but i've submitted a request to fix it
 
- this probably goes without saying, but the line that goes "with a controller in their hand" is speaking of a singular 'they'; there are no gendered pronouns in finnish (and "his/her" sounds painfully stupid for... so many reasons).
