Lett å være rebell i kjellerleiligheten din
Karpe Diem Lyrics


Apekatter i min blokk og Abu Bakr i min cockpit!
(Er det dette skattepenga mine går til?)
Ankerbarna dine kom så mokkamenn kan vinne lotteri?
(Er dette skattepenga mine går til?)
De sa de kom fra fattigdommen, hadde råd til båt hit.
(Er det dette skattepenga mine går til?)
Hunder født i staller er ikke hester eller gårdsdyr!
(Er det dette skattepenga mine går til?)
Dere er alle av samme ulla
(Alle skal bli knulla)
Mulla, mulla, mulla, mulla, mulla
Dere er alle av samme ulla
(Alle skal bli knulla)
Mulla, mulla, mulla, mulla, mulla
Om du visste hva jeg ville gi for å bli som deg
Bli som deg, baba, bli som deg
Om du visste hva jeg ville gi for å bli som deg, din feiging
Og det er så lett å være rebell i kjellerleiligheten din
Det er så lett å være rebell i kjellerleiligheten din
Det er så lett å være rebell i kjellerleiligheten din, din feiging
Jeg skiter i om du er Tshawe eller Vinz eller Nico
(Er det du som skal med dattera mi på kino?)
Du er kanskje kul i dag, men hun gifter seg med Kygo
(Er det du som skal med dattera mi på kino?)
Har du hijaben i baksetet, skal hun bli muslim nå?
(Er det du som skal med dattera mi på kino?)
Jeg er ikke rasist, men skal liksom liksom-passet ditt bety noe?
(Er det du som skal med dattera mi på kino?)
Plukker frukt i våre haver
(Du blir aldri skandinaver)
NAVer, NAVer, NAVer, NAVer, NAVer
Plukker frukt i våre haver
(Du blir aldri skandinaver)
NAVer, NAVer, NAVer, NAVer, NAVer
Om du visste hva jeg ville gi for å bli som deg
Bli som deg, baba, bli som deg
Om du visste hva jeg ville gi for å bli som deg, din feiging
Og det er så lett å være rebell i kjellerleiligheten din
Det er så lett å være rebell i kjellerleiligheten din
Det er så lett å være rebell i kjellerleiligheten din, din feiging
Gutta mine bare, fack, fy faen, fy søren
Hvem passer på purken, hvem klipper frisøren?
Stiller provoserte spørsmål, kvasi-smarte
Drikker Nick, røyker noe som gjør de asiater
Til noen sier hver regjering trenger sin ape
Alle synes at det er et godt ordspill
For det betyr to ting
Og det er på en måte kravet for noe sånt, yeah
Anders, Anders, Anders Anundsen
Svartinga mine sa noen kloke ord
Karpe har åpna nok dører nå, på tide å lukke noen
Hvis ikke Arif eller Kaveh eller asylbarna slipper inn
Hva faen skal de gjøre der, bror?
Si det til Anders, Anders, Anders Anundsen
Lett å være rebell i leiligheten din
Tretti skjelett i kjellerleiligheten min
Jeg kommer til å ende opp som deg, feig!
Oh lord, oh lord, kan du tilgi Lillelord
For å ville ha bil og båt, nei!
Oh lord, oh lord, kan du tilgi Lillelord
For å ville ha bil og båt, nei!

@Luscious Locks well to be fair, i doubt it was asked in a pleasant way, but my whole point is there's a big difference between racist or prejudicial, and if we muddy the waters then we muddy our results, if minor things or "small things" like the tone in someones voice when they ask if their daughter will be converted to Islam becomes the issues, then the more important and major things will be equalized down to a lower severity.

I work with a lot of immigrants and many of the second gen immigrants are my friends, so it's a subject that's very important to me, and if the fight becomes "every little thing" it makes the fight a lot harder.

Also i'd like to apologize, i assumed you knew all the lyrics and the language based on your reply, so i went kinda hard on you lol, but despite this, Norway's biggest problem with immigrants and cultural differences aren't racism, it's prejudice.

And by that i mean there's a lack of effort by government to help along integration, so only 2nd+ generations are somewhat integrated, and it's getting better, but immigrant families still segregate themselves to their own groups and rarely try integrating on their own.
Almost all my friends are 2nd gen or more, and i've rarely interacted at all with their families, not for a lack of effort on my part, but when i visit they tend to ignore me and speak their own language to their kids, which is a shame, but beyond my control.

Therefore people don't usually dislike or hate them because of What they are, but rather Who they are, because they don't know them, nor get a chance to.

I'll give you an example, many many many Norwegians aren't particularly fond of Islam or Mosques because we don't go there and don't know the religion very well... Yet, when there was a terrorist attack on a Mosque and 2 elderly Islamic men stopped the Norwegian guy attacking them (oh yeah, he was absolutely a racist pos) they were hailed as heroes, and celebrated by the people, so much so they recently were honored with medals of noble deeds, which is one of the highest honors a civilian can be awarded, and the country applauded them, i read 100s of comments on the news article and facebook post, and i honestly never saw a single racist, prejudiced or even snyde "pff, i guess they got ONE thing right" at all, nothing, and that gives me hope for us, and by extension the world :)

Sorry for the super long messages, and thank you very much for your very level-headed response to my semi-agitated post.

Here's the guys getting their medals if you want to read the story i'm sure you can pick out some names and google it up ;)

ENGLISH EXPLANATION: The song was based on racist comments from online forums (see examples below). In a conform society like Norway, subtle racism has profound consequences for people trying to gain approval. When you have a non-native look or name, the road to approval and being seen as normal in the eyes of others can be long, as depicted by the "Paradis" rock-throwing game lighting up at the end of the video.

Being seen as normal in the eyes of others in an essential part of the video as the black eyes of the participants labels them unchangeably as different. The only resolve would be to hide your eyes, your looks, your clothes, your name and identity. The question remains: "Is looking, acting, dressing, etc. as a Norwegian the only way to be seen as a Norwegian?"

The insects in the video show how, in racist debate forums, immigrants are labeled as unworthy, leeching members of society. Though, in the video, we see the insects as struggling individuals in need of a helping hand.

The end of the video (slaughter house etc.) is a rant against the politicians and the public debate where words are politically correct and those with clever words set the agenda. There is also an appeal to not be a coward and go with the political norms, but instead open up the debate and speak truthfully about the issues, such as presented in this video.

In the last two phrases of the song he asks for forgiveness for wanting a car, a boat, essentially normal life goals for a Norwegian family. The problem being that wishing for these things are, by some, perceived as greed when you or your family has an immigration background.


Racist Online Comments as part of the lyrics:
"Monkeys in my apartment building and Abu Bakr in my cockpit? Is this what my tax money is going to?"
"Your anchor-children came here, so that mocca-men can follow and win the lottery. Is this what my tax money is going to?"
"They said they came from poverty, but they could afford a boat to come here. Is this what my tax money is going to?"
"Dogs born in stables are not horses or useful/domestic animals. Is this what my tax money is going to?"

Tommy Karlsen Tommy Karlsen my apologies as well for assuming so much about the song and Norway in general without knowing. You make good points all around about how the things I brought up should not be the biggest concerns, and I thank you for educating me on Norwegian society. Also thank you for the article :)

Tommy Karlsen Tommy Karlsen I was not aware that it’s a regular metaphor in Norway; I apologize for that.

I am not Muslim, so I certainly am not personally offended by those Hijab comments. To me, though, I understood the initial phrase as, “Oh, so are you going to force my daughter to convert to Islam!??” The power with which it was said implies a lot of hostility to me. If it were asked nicely it would not be a problem at all, but asking, “Oh, so is she a Muslim now!? Is there a hijab in the backseat!?” implies that the father expects the man to forcibly convert his daughter, which is technically “spreading religion” but not in a way that many people would like to be associated with. If I were Catholic I could be proud of it without supporting the mission slavery in the Americas. If I were Muslim I could proud of it without supporting forced conversion. Moreover, the anger with which it was asked implies that wearing a hijab or being Muslim is an undesirable thing. If I were a black person, and someone asked me, “Oh, are you getting dreads?” I would answer happily. But if someone asked, “WHAT, SO ARE YOU GETTIN DREADS NOW TOO!?!” I would be very offended, not because I think it’s bad but because the way they’re asking it makes it clear that they think it’s bad. All that said, I am a native English speaker and don’t even speak Norwegian (my sister told me what the lyrics mean in English), so I could very well be misinterpreting the tone of the question completely.

You are right that there’s a lot more racist shit in this song. I’m not offended by my own religious beliefs, in this because I’m not even Muslim, but I am offended when people insult other people’s religious beliefs for no good reason.
