Hanna Hasselberg

Helh - The Artist

284 views 7 months ago
I wrote this last summer when I was working as a cleaner at a hospital. It's sort of black and white, and I don't really like to think about life that way, but it works in a song and that's what I felt half a year ago.

I've got a cold for almost a month, but finally I can sort of sing.

My thoughts about the song, though in Swedish, and very rambling, can be found here: http://helh.blogspot.se/201...

Lyrics:
I've got this job, it pays enough
but every time the week end's over I feel like 'sod off'
and its alarming
And I've got these work mates and they're all quite nice
but every time they talk I feel superior and Christ,
it's so uncharming

It's the same every day, cleaning floors scrubbing away
Shit and I hope this feeling goes away it goes like

Should I be an artist then, should I be a fricking artist then

Thinking 'bout the future makes me cold as ice
hey hold on a second there will be no ice
now that's alarming
Continuing the list of things that won't exist
is flats, animals and jobs, well it won't be missed
guess we're all dying

Slowly but surely and we
spend our time poorly
monotonous work, racist colleagues
Sjung om studentens lyckliga da'r

Should I be an artist then, should I be a fricking artist then

Basically I try to figure out what to do
got no ideas for projects and I want back to school
this life is frightening
But no wasting student loans for me I'm all for waiting and see
will it kill me to be humble and work for McD
- what am I saying?

Don't get me wrong I am vegan
but isn't it time I begun
Being realistic
isn't it selfish to think

Should I be an artist then, should I be a fricking artist then Show less
