Such a cool song...

The lyrics translated...

The crows on the fields
black as ravens
will roar with laughter on the day
This boy goes to his grave
the procession from the church
against all my wishes
a last evening in the cafe
but the family didn't feel like it
they're such good citizen people
grey sparrows cowardly
I can protest all I want
They carry me to my grave
where the righteous crowd mourns
listen to the pastor
in its heart a good lad
and the crowd nods obedient
while I'd rather have seen my coffin
on the bar, the lid off
A joint going around
All of you drunk as hell
and you talk bullshit
and then the last booze ordered
on which a clear fellow -- thinker
Calls for a taxi

move these boy at the window
Bring bread and coffee
and drive in the hollow of night
all together to the sea
put me straight-up in sand
wipe the dirt of my face
sing to the moon once more
until the first light of dawn
walk in the dunes
Lay some shells in my lap
Collect wood that washed ashore
build a small boat
and when at night that barge of water
will put out the sun
Push me in the sea
Like I've been promised
Then make all a torch
Put the small boat on fire
I will sing my song once more
While you're dancing on the beach
Like Indians
