Although I didn't manage to listen to the complete song ( they want me to pay them, if I get it right :roll: ), there's another way -

Here is the lyrics as far as I can hear

Almost like the blues
I saw some people starving
there was murder there was rape
their villages were burning
they were trying to escape
I couldn’t meet their glances
I was staring at my shoes
I was acid it was tragic
it was almost like the blues
it was almost like the blues

I have to die a little
between each murderous thought
and when Im finished thinking
I have to die a lot
there’s torture and there’s killing
and there’s all my bad reviews
the war …. …… lord
its almost like the blues
its almost like the blues

So I let my heart get frozen
to keep away the rot
my father says I’m chosen
my mother says I’m not
I listen to their story
of the gypsies and the jews
it was good it wasn’t boring
it was almost like the blues
It was almost like the blues

There is no G-D in heaven
and there is no hell below
so says the grey professor
of all there is to know
but I’ve had the invitation
that a sinner can’t refuse
and its almost like salvation
its almost like the blues
Its almost like the blues
...I ..... .... ....... made . ..... ...... by ....... music .. ..... .. ......

Edit (8-20)
I had made a transcription that was almost the same and suggested some changes.
Now, Jarkko posted the official lyrics here:

Mmm...I like the clip. A few cracked vocals but they don't really hinder it at all and a more hardened edge to the sound and vibe than Old Ideas. I was reminded a little of The Future thematically although having now read the last verse, there is clearly a more hopeful pledge of faith in there.

Aaaargh! I can see it on Spotify (using an IPad) but it won't play for me! Any idea what I'm doing wrong?

Nope... As far as I can tell, it works on my phone.
I'd like to help you, but I don't know how...
