Urban Symphony - Skorpion (English translation)

English translation

Scorpion

The wind carries dunes
And hides human footsteps
Time remembers and knows
- the pharaohs pet lives here
Old scorpion in a golden cage
His immortal soul
Has been forgotten
Fallen to oblivion
 
For months the caravans have passed by here
Thus centuries pass under the stars
But he still remembers the fall of Rome.
Old scorpion - brave warrior
Let this exhausted soul out of the cage!
Show him the way towards the winds:
Live free, brave warrior!
 
The confident mind of the old fighter
Has for centuries binded all
Fools and kings
The unstoppable flow of time
Erases them as well.
Like bothersome rattlesnakes
They dissapear into the wind
 
The Milky Way and silent sand will stay his companions
Thus centuries pass under the stars
But he still remembers the fall of Rome
Old scorpion - brave warrior
Let this exhausted soul out of the cage!
Show him the way towards the winds:
Live free, brave warrior!
 
Thus the centuries pass under the stars
But he still remembers the fall of Rome.
Old scorpion - brave warrior
Let this exhausted soul out of the cage!
Show him the way towards the winds:
Live free, brave warrior!
 
Show him the way towards the winds:
 
Old scorpion, brave warrior!

Author's comments:

It's a very new single and written by hearing, so the lyrics might not be right. I'll re-check them once other lyrics have been made available on the Internet.
