REMORSE – 高歌

REMORSE

The village head in his last stage of anus and intestinal cancer
came to our door one day
to apologize for hitting my mother
and hurting her arm five years ago.
My mother was still too angry
to let him come in.
Told him he could have killed her,
And his remorse would count a fart anyway.

Every time I hear mother mention
that enemy who went sick and died
I always imagine how he looks from behind,
silently walking away.
Then I tell mother,
you should forgive him.

Among all the bad people buried underground,
how many have apologized for their sins?

PATCH OF OUR COUNTRY – 高歌 – EIN FLECKCHEN HEIMATERDE

SMALL SOVEREIGN PATCH OF OUR COUNTRY

the tour bus was passing
a building
everyone only uses the back door
says our guide
all through the year
the front door is never open
everybody who works there
goes in from the back
I was just waking up
thought he was talking
about the cobra
research station

EIN FLECKCHEN HEIMATERDE

der bus hat gerade
ein gebäude passiert
jeder benützt nur die hintertür
sagt unser führer
das ganze jahr
die vordertür ist nicht einen tag offen
alle die drinnen arbeiten
müssen immer von hinten hinein
ich war grad aufgewacht
hab gedacht er spricht
über das brillenschlangenlabor
