    Lightbulb Translation request

    Could someone please translate this into English? It´s a song by Swedish band Ultima Thule. Sounds great but what are the lyrics about?

    Förkastad Och Förnekad

    Hör tidender från huset
    Hör vad nytt de högsta vet
    Hör sanningar och sägner
    Hör om makt och ärlighet
    Se spegel som förvränger
    Se den göra grus till guld
    Vid skranket står förvånad
    Nu talas det om skuld

    Paria paria oberörbar
    Förkastad och förnekad
    Själv sin rätt nu tar

    Jag skyller er för pesten
    Som härjar i vår tid
    Ni bannar den som talar
    Och går på egen stig
    Sitt så på höga hästar
    Och titta lystet ner
    Glöm ej för allt i världen
    Vem givit makt åt er

    Paria paria oberörbar
    Förkastad och förnekad
    Själv sin rätt nu tar

    Jag ser ni skolar folket
    Och håller dem för lika
    Några skolas arma
    Och andra skall bli rika
    Jag skådar ej jag siar
    Hur maror varje natt
    Rider era själar
    Och leker tafatt

    Paria paria oberörbar
    Förkastad och förnekad
    Själv sin rätt nu tar

    Paria paria oberörbar
    Förkastad och förnekad
    Själv sin rätt nu tar

    Paria paria oberörbar
    Förkastad och förnekad
    Själv sin rätt nu tar

    You have good taste in music.
    Though, I like Hel a bit better than Ultima Thule.

    I can't help though, I'm only learning swedish.

    Darn it. I was just about to write it's a great song but realized that I've never heard it when I thought the text wasn't at all as I memorized it, the stupid bastard I downloaded another Ultima Thule song from, "Odens Återkomst"- "The return of Odin" had written its the name as Förkastad och förnekad: ...and I've been listening for that song for a year misscomprehending its name.How silly. But now I'm downloading the real Förkastad och Förnekad 1:

    Anyways it's roughly:

    Rejected and denied

    Hear tidings from the house
    Hear what new the highest know
    Hear truths and sayings
    Hear of power and honesty
    See mirror that distort
    See it make gold out of gravel
    By the *fence*stands surprised
    Now it is spoken of guilt

    Paria paria untouchable
    Rejected and denied
    Self *seinen* right jetz nehmen

    I accuse you for the plauge
    That ravages in our time
    You curse he/she who speaks
    And goes his own path
    Sit then on *high horses*
    And look greedily down
    Forget not *for all in the world*/for gods sake
    Who has given power to you

    I see you teaching the people
    And hold the all for equal
    some is teached poor
    Ands others shall be rich
    I see not I forsee
    How nightmares/Hags every night
    Rides you soles
    and play cath

    Basicly that is, very roughly...

    Nono, on the contrary, I'm beginning to feel like some kind of a retard when I slowly come to see that after the sorrowfull passing of my limited "skills" in german and french even my english has begun to turn stagnant. God damn it, I have to do someting or I'll turn completely mute within a year...:icon1:

    Also, I read that Ultima Thule will cease to exist within a few years, so if you want to see them live you'd want to scram to Kuggnäs next summer. I missed them this summer due to work...so hopefully next summer :icon1:

    Where did you hear this? If no rumour, I will try and see them then at the festival. The first album I ever bought of them is still my favourite, Sverige.

    I still hear my comrades swarming about their Dresden concert in 1996 (album Live in Dresden). Never saw them myself, though.

    My favourite song by UT:

    Här blev jag upplyft på min faders arm.
    Här blev jag vaggad trygg i moders famn.
    Här nötte jag mina första skor.
    Här har jag min syster och min bror.

    Här vill jag leva, här vill jag dö.
    Här lever jag i frihet.
    Här vill jag leva, här vill jag dö.
    Här lever jag mitt liv i frihet.

    Såg ett ansikte, en döende man.
    Lärde mig att lyssna, att älska mitt land.
    Livet är ett strövtåg, en öken och en äng.
    Det som frös det dog, gör våren grönt igen.

    Här vill jag leva, här vill jag dö.
    Här lever jag i frihet.
    Här vill jag leva, här vill jag dö.
    Här lever jag mitt liv i frihet.

    Högt flyger örnen, min frihet är att se.
    Allt jag älskar, vill jag återge.
    Sjöars glitter, kust till fredens hav.
    Det är mitt arv, som den gamle gav.

    Här vill jag leva, här vill jag dö.
    Här lever jag i frihet.
    Här vill jag leva, här vill jag dö.
    Här lever jag mitt liv i frihet.

    Här vill jag leva, här vill jag dö.
    Här lever jag i frihet.
    Här vill jag leva, här vill jag dö.
    Här lever jag mitt liv i frihet.

    If someone could translate this too I would be eternally grateful.

    It says so in the latest number of Nordisk Frihet "Enligt Ulf Hansen som spelar trummor i bandet var detta en av bandets sista spelningar i Sverige" refering to their show at Kuggnäs this year...doesn't say who wrote that part in the magazine though. Oh, stop giving concerts in Sweden, not precisely what I firstly wrote, but if they will stop giving concerts, does that perhaps point towards the end of Ultima Thule?
