Give me back my broken night
my mirrored room, my secret life
it’s lonely here,
there’s no one left to torture
Give me absolute control
over every other living soul
And lie beside me, baby,
that’s an order!

Give me crack and anal sex
Take the only tree that’s left
stuff it up the hole
in your culture
Give me back the Berlin wall
give me Stalin and St Paul
I’ve seen the future, brother:
it is murder.

Things are going to slide, slide in all directions
Won’t be nothing
Nothing you can measure anymore
The blizzard, the blizzard of the world
has crossed the threshold
and it has overturned
the order of the soul
When they said: repent! repent!
I wonder what they meant
When they said: repent! repent!
I wonder what they meant
When they said: repent! repent!
I wonder what they meant.

You don’t know me from the wind
you never will, you never did
I was the little jew
who wrote the Bible
I’ve seen the nations rise and fall
I’ve heard their stories, heard them all
but love’s the only engine of survival
Your servant here, he has been told
to say it clear, to say it cold:
It’s over, it ain’t going
any further
And now the wheels of heaven stop
you feel the devil’s riding crop
Get ready for the future:
it is murder.

Things are going to slide …

There’ll be the breaking of the ancient
western code
Your private life will suddenly explode
There’ll be phantoms
There’ll be fires on the road
and a white man dancing
You’ll see a woman
hanging upside down
her features covered by her fallen gown
and all the lousy little poets
coming round
tryin’ to sound like Charlie Manson
and the white man dancin’.

Give me back the Berlin wall
Give me Stalin and St Paul
Give me Christ
or give me Hiroshima
Destroy another fetus now
We don’t like children anyhow
I’ve seen the future, baby:
it is murder.

Things are going to slide …

When they said: repent! repent! …

Album_Leonard Cohen - The Future

Prevod na srpski

Budućnost

Vrati mi moju prekinutu noć
moju sobu sa ogledalima, moj tajni život
usamljen sam ovde,
nemam više koga da mučim
Daj mi potpunu kontrolu
nad svim živima
I lezi kraj mene, dušo,
to je naredba!

Daj mi krek i analni seks
Uzmi to jedino stablo što je preostalo
i uguraj ga u rupu
u svojoj kulturi
Vrati mi berlinski zid
daj mi Staljina i Svetog Pavla
Ja sam video budućnost, brate:
ona je ubica.

Stvari će teći nekontrolisano, teći na sve strane
Neće biti ničega
Više ničega što bi bilo merljivo
Mećava, ta mećava sveta
prešla je granicu
i poremetila
red u duši
Kada su rekli: pokajte se! pokajte se!
pitam se na šta su mislili
Kada su rekli: pokajte se! pokajte se!
pitam se na šta su mislili
Kada su rekli: pokajte se! pokajte se!
pitam se na šta su mislili

Ti mene ne poznaješ sa vetra
nikada nećeš, nikada nisi
ja sam bio onaj mali jevrej
koji je napisao bibliju
video sam uspone i padove nacija
čuo sam njihove priče, čuo sam ih sve
ali ljubav je jedini pokretač opstanka
Ovom tvom slugi rečeno je
da izgovori jasno, da kaže hladno:
Gotovo je, dalje
ne ide
I sada nebo staje
osećaš đavolov bič
Spremi se za budućnost:
ona je ubistvo.

Stvari će teći nekontrolisano…

Doći će do sloma drevnog
zapadnog zakonika
Tvoj privatni život naprasno će eksplodirati
Biće fantoma
Na putu goreće vatre
a jedan beli čovek će plesati
Videćeš neku ženu
kako visi naglavce
njeni atributi prikriveni njenom palom svečanom haljinom
a svi ušljivi sitni pesnici
dolaze
pokušavajući da zvuče kao Charlie Manson
i tog belog čoveka što pleše.

Vrati mi berlinski zid
daj mi Staljina i Svetog Pavla
Daj mi Hrista
ili mi daj Hirošimu
Uništi sada još jedan fetus
Ionako ne volimo decu
Video sam budućnost, dušo:
ona je ubistvo.

Stvari će teći nekontrolisano …

Kada su rekli: pokajte se! pokajte se! …
