lyrics

I wish I worked in a factory
I think I was born in the wrong century
To hear the metal in my head
Creaking and tolling like a bell
And baby, it's not my fault that I was born so late
Because no doubt I could have been one of those
Unknown heroes

Tough men tackling their task
Breaking their bodies and their backs
A muscle shining with sweat on my shoulder
A coal fire burning on my skin
In our past, there would be no mass murders
To cast a shadow on our future
And the innocence of revolutionary times
Would make my heart beat like a drum
One day an accident would blow up the mine
Some comrades would come from the Rhine
To rescue our men and then all together
We'd celebrate the rise of brotherhood
I wish I worked in a factory...

Her experiences as an outsider (in Europe and the Americas) open up her musical field to all things pop, rock, folk and folklores. ... more
