This song has been haunting me for weeks, nay, months now. I can’t even tell why, it’s something about the melody and the lyrics that gets to me. 

The lyrics below are translated from Dutch, by yours truly. Some of them are not literal, but I tried to keep them in tune with the song, and to give them the same feel as the Dutch lyrics. I hope it comes across.

Please poorter, won’t you let me in
I have no coin, no harbour
My wife and children are all dead
I buried them on my own

I see the towers of the town
They loom on the horizon
I wish that I had friends up there
who could comfort my sorrow
Been travelling for fourteen years, please point me to a shelter
A piece of bread, a cup of wine, it really doesn’t matter

Please poorter, won’t you let me in
I have no coin, no harbour
My wife and children are all dead
I buried them on my own

I have been walking all my life through woods and field and meadow
I hunt with wolves and then I sleep with bears inside their hollow
The search is going for too long, please help me to become free
So come and stab me dead my friend, bury me beneath thee

Please poorter, won’t you let me in
I have no coin, no harbour
My wife and children are all dead
I buried them on my own

I don’t know much, this much is true, but I’ll tell you something’s coming
The war, it calls, the hour comes, my dreams have been foreboding
I saw the city burning down, the houses and the steeple
The devil burned ev’rything down, the mice and then the people

Please poorter, won’t you let me in
I have no coin, no harbour
My wife and children are all dead
I buried them on my own
I saw destruction in your town
The ground, I saw it quaking
And I have told you of it now
Thank be by alms and giving

De Wereld Vergaat by Laïs

Laïs - De Wereld Vergaat

Eindelijk ‘t moest er toch eens van komen.
‘t Werd ons voorspeld door de ster met de steert.
Ik heb gelukkig mijn voorzorg genomen,
mijn laatste cent is goddank reeds verteerd.
Ben ik gedwongen nu schulden te maken,
zet men mij morgen of heden op straat,
‘k lach ermee want ‘t kan mij toch niet raken,
aangezien dat toch de wereld vergaat…

ACHILLES IS ONE HOT LADY

oedipusmotherfuckingtyrannus:

THIS ACHILLES BITCH GOT A WHOLE FUCKING EPIC ABOUT HIS MOPING AT TROY, BUT WHAT THE FUCK WAS HE DOING BEFORE THAT? HIS STORY STARTS WHEN HE WAS AN ANGRY BUT HEROIC BABY, AND HIS IRRESPONSIBLE MOTHER THETIS FUCKING DIPPED HIM IN THE RIVER STYX TO MAKE HIM INVULNERABLE (EXCEPT ONE SHITTY LITTLE PART OF HIS ANKLE) - ALTERNATIVELY SHE COVERED HIM IN AMBROSIA AND SET HER BABY ON FUCKING FIRE, HIS DAD PELEUS SAW THIS, FREAKED THE FUCK OUT, SO THE RITUAL WAS LEFT INCOMPLETE. 

ACHILLES GREW UP AND HE WAS TRAINED IN HIPPY HEALING SHIT BY THIS CENTAUR FUCKER CHIRON, AND IN WAR BY THE AWESOMELY NAMED FUCKER PHOENIX. HE WAS A FUCKING FABULOUSLY KIDDO AND KILLED LIONS AND SHIT WHEN HE WAS SIX YEARS OLD. WHEN HE WAS NINE, MUMMY THETIS HEARD THE PROPHECY THAT IF HE WENT TO TROY HE WOULD NEVER FUCKING COME BACK. TO AVOID THIS, SHE HID HIM ON THE ISLAND OF SKYROS.

RATHER THAN JUST HIDING IN THE WOODS OR SOME SHIT, THETIS HAD KID-ACHILLES DRESSED UP AS A GIRL AND HE GREW UP WITH THE KING OF SKYROS’ DAUGHTERS. CLEARLY SOME SHIT WENT DOWN AS ONE OF DAUGHTERS, DEIDAMEA, GAVE BIRTH TO HIS SON, THE COMPLETE FUCKING ASS-HOLE SHIT FUCKER DOUCHEBAG NEOPTOLEMUS (ALSO KNOWN AS PYRRHUS BECAUSE HE WAS A FUCKING GINGER).

ACHILLES LOOKED SO DAMN GOOD IN A DRESS THAT HE GOT AWAY WITH THIS FOR YEARS, UNTIL ONE DAY FUCKING ODYSSEUS ROCKED UP, BECAUSE HE WAS LOOKING FOR FUCKERS TO PARTY AT TROY. ODYSSEUS CARELESSLY LEFT SOME WEAPONS LYING AROUND THEN PRETENDED EVERYONE WAS UNDER ATTACK. ACHILLES SNAPPED INTO HERO-MODE, RIPPING OFF HIS DRESS FUCKING DRAMATICALLY AND GRABBING THE WEAPONS,GIVING UP WITH THE DUMB-SHIT HIDING.

ACHILLES GOES TO TROY, FUCKS SHIT UP AND KILLS BASICALLY FUCKING EVERYONE (EXCEPT PATROCLUS, WHO HE WAS CLEARLY JUST FUCKING), AND LATER IS KILLED BY THAT LOSER PARIS, USING A FUCKING BOW (WHAT A PUSSY) AND PROBABLY WITH APOLLO’S HELP (BECAUSE REALLY PARIS IS ONLY GOOD AT LOOKING HOT AND FUCKING SHIT UP).
