Explanation:
Again, this is literal. What their music (if that's what it is) is about, would be for someone a few generations younger to tell.

Grading comment
I am now also a fan of Per Bergvall. Yes, this music (I'll go ahead and call it that) is very abrasive and definitely an acquired taste, but the poetry in the lyrics (some of them are in English) are of far greater quality in a literary sense than most popular American lyrics. I can, however, understand that, for most, these words would be far better enjoyed READ, rather than listened to. Thanks again, Mr. Bergvall. I've got more for you...
