    Netflix dvd was subtitled...EXCEPT THE SONGS!!!

    Bummer as the guy is a poet and the whole film revolves around his reading, or singing, of his poetry.

    This world of palaces, of thrones,
    of crowns
    This world of division,
    enemy of man
    This world of blind custom
    hungry for wealth
    Would I care if such a world
    were mine?
    Bodies wounded,
    souls thirsty
    Confusion in eyes,
    despondency in hearts
    Is this a world or
    a place of bewilderment?
    Would I care if such a world
    were mine?
    Here a man's life is a plaything
    Here live worshippers of the dead
    Here life has no value,
    death comes cheaper
    Would I care if such a world
    were mine?
    Youth strays into crime
    Young bodies are adorned
    for the marketplace
    Here love is another name for trade
    Would I care if such a world
    were mine?
    This world where man
    counts for nothing
    Loyality and friendship
    count for nothing
    Where love has no importance
    Would I care if such a world
    were mine?
    Burn it, blow this world away
    Take this world away from my sight
    Take charge of this world,
    you can keep it

    "You better have that book of poetry tomorrow or else we'll burn your shop!"
