Original Translation
Tylko jedno w głowie mam _______ There's only one thing on my mind
koksu pięć gram odlecieć sam five grams of coke, fly away alone
W krainę zapomnienia to the land of nevermore
W głowie myśli mam There are thoughts inside my head
kiedy skończy się ten stan when this state will end
Gdy już nie będę sam When I won't be alone
Bo wjedzie biały węgorz /x2 [2] Cause white eel* will kick in /x2
