Gummy Bears

We are fighting against the world
where even the gummy bears aren't divided equally1
It would be easier to give up
Nothing will work out anyway
When you're a pessimist, you'll never be disappointed,
you don't reach for the stars if you can't reach them
If you dare to look far
there are better times in view2, yee-haw
[Mikael Gabriel, Jare]
Haven't cared to watch the news
I feel like hiding in a hole3,
like turning off the phone, off-grid4
And tell everybody: 'Talk later.'
Crying isn't going to help
But sighing a bit does help
Around here you've got to drop before you get to lick again
I can breathe again
It's not easy in others' shoes, either
But I will survive although the people here are unfair
Some have a taller stack5, yeah
Others have a heavier backpack, yeah
Turning the wheel6 in the dark
Threw the noodles in the pot
Using a shirt as a bed
I used dad's coat
But this is not the end
I could say: 'See you.'
But this is not the end
I'm staying here today
  • 1. More literally perhaps: where everyone doesn't get their equal share...
  • 2. lit. in the binoculars
  • 3. lit. 'like burrowing into the depths [of the Earth]'
  • 4. I don't think 'under the radar' means the same thing it means in English. It just means turning off the phone while being alone.
  • 5. of money
  • 6. of a car

“Under the radar” = off-grid? (thanks to Pääsuke‘s note)

Thanks, that's exactly the word I was looking for!
