Kongos - Hey I Don't Know Lyrics




Tears are shed, a shame
I should have known
I should have thought
I could have thought
Before I cast that stone

The waves radiate far and wide
There's a ringing in my ears
For a minute
I think I'm going blind

Tears are shed, a shame
I should have known
The crown weighs heavy
Heavy as I sit back in my throne

I say hey, it wasn't me
I'm just a pawn
But the devil's not into details
Where have all the heroes gone?

Hey I don't know
Why don't you tell me?

The dream is broken
Now the mind must be woken

So what are you waiting for
Tell me what's the hesitation?
What are you waiting for
Tell me what is the delay?

Hey I don't know
The victor earns the title "The Great"
All the mysteries get unlearned
All the history just becomes a string of dates

The hordes overrun in a clean sweep
Destroying everything that was built
Where's the glory in making mothers weep?

Hey I don't know

The dream is broken
Now the mind must be woken

So what are you waiting for
Tell me what's the hesitation?
What are you waiting for
Your special invitation?
What are you waiting for
Tell me what is the delay?

Hey I don't know

    "Hey I Don't Know" ~ Kongos

    Tears are shed, a shame
    I should have known
    I should have thought
    I could have thought
    Before I cast that stone

    The waves radiate far and wide
    There's a ringing in my ears
    For a minute
    I think I'm going blind

    Tears are shed, a shame
    I should have known
    The crown weighs heavy
    Heavy as I sit back in my throne

    I say hey, it wasn't me
    I'm just a pawn
    But the devil's not into details
    Where have all the heroes gone?

    Hey I don't know, why don't you tell me?
    Hey I don't know, why don't you tell me?

    The dream is broken
    Now the mind must be woken

    So what are you waiting for
    Tell me what's the hesitation?
    What are you waiting for
    Tell me what is the delay?

    Hey I don't know, why don't you tell me?
    Hey I don't know, why don't you tell me?
    Hey I don't know, why don't you tell me?
    Hey I don't know, why don't you tell me?

    The victor earns the title "The Great"
    All the mysteries get unlearned
    All the history just becomes a string of dates

    The hordes overrun in a clean sweep
    Destroying everything that was built
    Where's the glory in making mothers weep?

    Hey I don't know, why don't you tell me?
    Hey I don't know, why don't you tell me?
    Hey I don't know, why don't you tell me?
    Hey I don't know, why don't you tell me?

    The dream is broken
    Now the mind must be woken

    So what are you waiting for
    Tell me what's the hesitation?
    What are you waiting for
    Your special invitation?
    What are you waiting for
    Tell me what is the delay?

    Hey I don't know, why don't you tell me?
    Hey I don't know, why don't you tell me?
    Hey I don't know, why don't you tell me?
    Hey I don't know, why don't you tell me?

    Hey Bilmiyorum-

    Gözyaşları döküldü
    Bilmem gerekirdi
    Düşünmem gerekirdi
    Düşünmüş olabilirdim
    Bu taşı fırlatmadan önce

    Dalgalar iyice yayıldı
    Kulaklarımda bir çınlama var
    Bir dakikalığına
    Kör olacağımı sandım

    Gözyaşları döküldü, bir utanç
    Bilmem gerekirdi
    Taçlar ağır geliyor
    Ben tahtımda otururken ağır

    Diyorum ki hey, o ben değildim
    Yalnızca bir piyonum ben
    Ama şeytan detaylarla ilgilenmez
    Nereye gitti bütün kahramanlar?

    Hey bilmiyorum
    Neden bana söylemedin?

    Hayal yıkıldı
    Şimdi zihin uyanmalı

    Ne bekliyorsun öyleyse
    Söylesene nedir tereddüt?
    Neyi bekliyorsun
    Söylesene geciktirmek nedir?

    Hey bilmiyorum
    Galip gelen "Ulu" unvanını kazanır
    Bütün gizemler öğrenilmez
    Bütün geçmiş yalnızca tarih liflerine dönüşür

    Ordular istila ediyor köklü değişimi
    Yapılan herseyi yıkıyorlar
    Anneleri ağlatan şeref nerde?

    Hey bilmiyorum

    Hayal yıkıldı
    Şimdi zihin uyanmalı

    Ne bekliyorsun öyleyse
    Söylesene nedir tereddüt?
    Neyi bekliyorsun
    Özel davetiyeni mi?
    Söylesene geciktirmek nedir?

    Hey bilmiyorum
