Versuri Leonard Cohen - The Old Revolution



I finally broke into the prison, I found my place in the chain 
Even damnation is poisoned with rainbow 
All the brave young men they're waiting now to see a signal 
Which some killer will be lighting for pay 
 
Into this furnace I ask you now to venture 
You whom I cannot betray 
 
I fought in the old revolution on the side of the ghost and the king 
Of course I was very young and I thought that we were winning 
I can't pretend, I still feel very much like singing 
As they carry the bodies away 
 
Into this furnace I ask you now to venture 
You whom I cannot betray 
 
Lately you've started to stutter 
As though you had nothing to say 
To all of my architects let me be traitor 
Now let me say, I myself gave the order 
To sleep and to search and to destroy 
 
Into this furnace I ask you now to venture 
You whom I cannot betray 
 
Yes, you who are broken by power, you who are absent all day 
You who are kings for the sake of your children's story 
The hand of your beggar is burdened down with money 
The hand of your lover is clay 
 
Into this furnace I ask you now to venture 
You whom I cannot betray
