Blah, don't have my booklet with me (lent the CD to a friend). Damn good album btw.

The lyrics aren't very simple to translate either. Not that complicated, but not very easy stuff either.

Why not?

Here's Hammasratas and Muistipalapelit, anyway, if anyone wants to:

Nälänhädät, sotatilat, Afrikka ja Aasia
kansanmurhat, diktatuurit: kiduta ja tuhoa
Ylikansallisten yritysten psykopatia

Uskontojen oikeutukset, kasvihuonekaasutukset,
sademetsäkeuhkosyöpä, luonnonvaran raiskaukset:
syrjäytyneet hakataan, moraalimme tapetaan

Globalisaatio ja medioiden tarut,
politiikan valikoivat lainmuutoshalut,
köyhien alamäki, rikkaiden jumaluus

Niin lyhyitä lankoja minulla on käsissä
etten hammasvälejäni edemmäs yletä,
kiillotan vain ongelmien nimiä
...on niin lyhyt elämä

Olenko vahva? Olenko valmis?
Jaksanko samaa rataa?
Rattaat pyörivät tuhatta ja sataa

Tiedän, tiedän mistä viha syntyy:
kaksi vastavoimaa yhtyy
Viisaudenhammas rattaisiin jarruksi:
kone voitettiin

Hampaina rattaissamme:
Pelko ja raha, jumalan nimi
Aivoihin valettu rajamuurikivi
Hampaina rattaissamme:
Ääriliikkeet, terrorismi
Aseita myydään, aseita pelätään
Hampaina rattaissamme:
Elämänmittainen ahneus ja viha
Kuolemansyntiä koko historia
Hampaina rattaissamme:
Rohkea reitti rotkoa kohden
hypätäkkö kyydistä vai
hajottaako kone?

---

Juon kaiken, juon myös huomisen
Juon kaiken jotta muistaisi en
Minkä muiston valitsen
Syy on selvä, minä en
Syy on hävinneiden palojen
Muistipalapelien

Pirstaleiden, pillereiden,
parketin ja partaveisten,
pullojen varjoista löydän itseni
Onko jo aamu?
Seinät ylösalaisin; rikastuisin,
jos näkymästä joka kerta sentin saisin
...ehkä huone hengittää enää sisäänpäin

Huudon jälkeen

Pöydän päällä, tuolilla, naamassa,
osittain jossain laatikoissa
Sekaisin jaloissa pyörii psyykeni,
olen paloina lattialla

Huudon jälkeen
huuhdon jälleen

Liikaa verta alkoholissa
sisuskalut aivan äärirajoilla
kampean pystyyn ja kaadun taas
miksi nousta, ei pohjaa vakaampaa

Huudon jälkeen

Viinaa ja tervahauta
Ylös suosta et enää sinäkään auta
Alkoholilla, ainoastaan
taistelen loppuja paloja vastaan

Huudon jälkeen
huuhdon jälleen

Blah. I should write this paper for tomorrow (school), but I'd like to put it forward a bit

Quote by Fama

Famines, wars (well, technically warsituations or something) Africa and Asia
Genocides, dictatures: torture and destroy
Overnational corporations' psychopathy

Religions' justifications, greenhousegassings
rainforestlungcancer, rapings of natural resources
the outlying are beaten, our moral is killed

Globalisation and media's myths
selective lawchangingwills of politics
downhill of the poor, divinity of the rich

So short strings I have in my hands
that I can't reach farther than my (spaces between teeth)
I just shine the names of the problems
...so short is life

Am I strong? Am I ready?
Will I keep doing the same?
The gears are turning (idiom; very fast)

I know, know where anger is born:
two counterpowers unite
Wisdomtooth into the gears as a brake:
the machine was beaten

Teeth in our gears:
Fear and money, name of the god
Teeth in our gears:
(a borderwallstone) cast in our brains
Teeth in our gears:
Extreme movements (as in political movements/whatever, parties and such)
Teeth in our gears:
Life long greed and hate
Teeth in our gears:
Deathsin whole history
Teeth in our gears:
Bold course towards a (chasm/abyss/gorge/ravine)
To jump off or
to break the machine?


Lost some meanings here and there I guess.

Muistipalapelit has the best lyrics in the history of music. I tried to translate them. The song is about jigsaw puzzle pieces of his memory that get lost when he drinks and he prefers life that way.

Stam1na - Muistipalapelit (Memory Puzzles)

Chorus:
I drink everything
I drink tomorrow too
I drink everything so I wouldn't remember
Which memory to choose
The reason is clear/sober*
I ain't
The reason is the vanished puzzles
... of Jigsaw Puzzles in My Memory

In the middle of shadows made by
Splinters
Pills
Parquet and shaving razors**
Bottles
I find myself

Walls upside down
I'd be a very rich man
If I got a cent every time I saw this view
Maybe this room is only breathing in now?

GYAAAGYA GYAAAAGYA GYAAGYA NYAAAAAYAYA? or something like that

On the table
On the chair
In my face
In a drawer somewhere?
Somewhere at my feet my psyche is rolling around***
Pieces on the floor is what I am

AFTER
THE SCREAM
I DRINK
AGAIN
IIII SCREAAAM
IIIIII DRIIIIINKKK
IIIIIIIII SCREEEAAAAMM
IIIIIIIIIII DRRRIIIINNKKKKK

Chorus:
I drink everything
I drink tomorrow too
I drink everything so I wouldn't remember
Which memory to choose
The reason is clear/sober*
I ain't
The reason is the vanished puzzles
... of Jigsaw Puzzles in My Memory

Way too much blood in the alcohol
Intestines on the edge
I climb on my feet again and tumble down
Why should I arise? There's nothing firmer from the bottom

AAAA GYA, GYAAAAGYA, NYAAANYA, NYAAAANYA

Booze and tar pit
Up from the swamp even you cannot lift me
Alcohol, nothing else
I fight against the pieces left

AFTER
THE SCREAM
I DRINK
AGAIN
IIII SCREAAAM
IIIIII DRIIIIINKKK
IIIIIIIII SCREEEAAAAMM
IIIIIIIIIII DRRRIIIINNKKKKK

Chorus:
I drink everything
I drink tomorrow too
I drink everything so I wouldn't remember
Which memory to choose
The reason is clear/sober*
I ain't
The reason is the vanished puzzles
... of Jigsaw Puzzles in My Memory

NGGGYYAAAHAHHHHAHAH, AABBGHYAAAA, GGGNNNNYYAAAAHH etc etc.

The part where Hyyrynen is speaking suspiciously here is just the earlier verses, just spoken this time. Though the last word is a very desperate "eiiiii...", which means "no". But a very, VERY, desperate "no" as you can hear.

* the word "selvä" means both "clear" and "sober", the "sober" meaning is connected to the "I ain't", where he is apparently playing with the word in a way that makes it have both of the meanings: sober and clear. When he says "Syy on selvä, minä en", if you say "syy on selvä", means "the reason is clear", but "selvä minä en" basically means "The sober me". However it is impossible to translate so I just translated it "I ain't".

** well, "Parkettien partaveitsi", "Shaving razor of the parquets" in Finnish means a guy like Tom Jones, you know, a literal Playboy who dances so good he can get all the chicks in the house when he dances. Here, Hyyrynen sings "parketin ja partaveisten" so he is playing with the words again as he always does. "parketin ja partaveisten" means "Parquet and shaving razors" but all the Finnish people find two meanings in it again: the drunk Tuxedo wearing playboys who also drunk too much and passed out, in the other hand, the floor on which he has fallen asleep and the shaving razors that some emo people have used to cut their wrists. Maybe Hyyrynen himself!

*** Much in a way an immigrant ballerina does, just rotating around so fast, Hyyrynen cannot find it with his already intoxicated eyes.

Ok I hope you liked the words, I do

Edit 1: An edit about the words?

Yeah forgot to mention, some of the meanings definitely do get lost because I am not pro.
