I've wanted to translate this song for a long time, because the music video obviously tells a really interesting story in itself. I've done a bit of analysis on the lyrics, and I would like to share my interpretation soon in a seperate blog post. I will also talk a bit about my translation, and how it was affected by my interpretation.
