I was born in chains
But I was taken out of Egypt
I was bound to a burden
But the burden it was raised
Lord I can no longer
Keep this secret
Blessed is the Name
The Name be praised

I fled to the edge
Of the Mighty Sea of Sorrow
Pursued by the riders
Of a cruel and dark regime
But the waters parted
And my soul crossed over
Out of Egypt

Out of Pharaoh’s dream
Word of Words
And Measure of all Measures
Blessed is the Name
The Name be blessed
Written on my heart
In burning Letters
That’s all I know
I cannot read the rest

I was idle with my soul
When I heard that you could use me
I followed very closely
My life remained the same
But then you showed me
Where you had been wounded
In every atom
Broken is the Name

I was alone on the road
Your Love was so confusing
And all my teachers told me
That I had myself to blame
But in the Grip
Of Sensual Illusion
A sweet unknowing
Unified the Name

Word of Words…

I’ve heard the soul unfolds
In the chambers of its longing
And the bitter liquor sweetens
In the hammered cup
But all the Ladders
Of the Night have fallen
Only darkness now
To lift the Longing up

Album_Leonard Cohen - Popular Problems

Prevod pesme

Rođen u lancima

Ja sam rođen u lancima
Ali odveden sam iz Egipta
Suđeno mi je breme
Ali to breme uvećano je
Gospode, ne mogu više
Da čuvam ovu tajnu
Blagosloveno je ime Tvoje
Neka bude uzveličano ime Tvoje

Pobegao sam do ivice
Moćnog mora tuge
Gonjen jahačima
okrutnog i mračnog režima
Ali vode su se razdvojile
I moja duša je preko prešla
Iz Egipta

Iz faraonovog sna
Reč reči
I mera svih mera
Blagosloveno je ime Tvoje
Nek bude blagosloveno ime Tvoje
Ispisano na mom srcu
žarećim slovima
To je sve što znam
Ostalo ne mogu da pročitam

Nisam pridavao značaja svojoj duši
Kad sam čuo da ti mogu biti od koristi
Pažljivo sam pratio
Moj život je isti ostao
Ali onda si mi pokazao
Gde si ranjen bio
U svakom atomu
Tvoje je ime pocepano

Bio sam sam na putu
Tvoja ljubav je bila tako zbunjujuća
A svi moji učitelji su mi govorili
Da sam sam kriv
Ali u stisku
Čulnih iluzija
Neko slatko neznanje
Ujedinilo je Ime

Reč reči…

Čuo sam da se duša otkriva
U komorama svojih vapaja
A gorka tečnost postaje slađa
U kovanom peharu
Ali sve merdevine
noći pale su
Sad je tu samo tama
da podigne čežnju
