Nordvest by Simon Roy Danish version (original)

English version (translated)

Mænd i dynejakker i grupper på gadehjørner

Men in bombers in groups on street corners

Fluer i lyset luner sig på lamper

Flies warming their bodies on bulbs

Livets længde ændres i opfattelsen af tiden

Life’s length changes in the perception of time

Lukker og slukker dagen mens

Closing off the day while

Fluer i dynejakker kontrollerer byens lys

Flies in bombers control the lights of the city
