Versuri Leonard Cohen - A Singer Must Die

Now, the courtroom is quiet but who will confess? 
Is it true you betrayed us? The answer is yes 
Then read me the list of the crimes that are mine 
I will ask for the mercy that you love to decline 
And all the ladies go moist and the judge has no choice 
A singer must die for the lie in his voice 
And I thank you, I thank you for doing your duty 
You keepers of truth, you guardians of beauty 
Your vision is right, my vision is wrong 
I'm sorry for smudging the air with my song 
Oh the night, it is thick, my defenses are hid 
In the clothes of a woman I would like to forgive 
In the rings of her silk, in the hinge of her thighs 
Where I have to go begging in beauty's disguise 
Oh goodnight, goodnight, my night after night 
My night after night, after night, after night, after night, after night 
I am so afraid that I listen to you 
Your sun glassed protectors they do that to you 
It's their ways to detain, their ways to disgrace 
Their knee in your balls and their fist in your face 
Yes and long live the state by whoever it's made 
Sir, I didn't see nothing, I was just getting home late
