Crematory, Tale lyrics

Every bright possessor of a body floats
Dreaming away, awaiting redemption
Several often where all bright folks were honest and true
Day in, day out, day in, day out, day in, day out

Men and women in rugs, criminals and shady characters
Their faces unbearded tin seamen
Their eyes shine in fear of the things to come
Their spirit gone forever
Waiting for a new tale
Their destiny...

Man it comes from stretch of the suffer from their mishaps
Never guess of
Superior being
Man and animal must defy the laws of nature

Carved in stone
Carved in time
The time zone

Carved in stone
Carved in time
The time zone...

Some lines seem to be misheard :-)

The Misfits - Dig Up Her Bones (1997)

Просто ностальгия что-то.

Igor Rasteryaev - Camomiles (lyrics translation to English)


There are planes flying in the sky all day, they are probably carrying someone to his vacation in Pattaya.
But I am in an open country dragging on foot by wild grass, to my friends Vasily and Roman who died from alcohol.
Not just one of my friends lies on one of these country cemeteries, where warm wind sings a song about counterfeit vodka playing the oval photographs.
The guys chose their road by themselves; but, God sees, somebody pushed them and let them down.
So (they did not have) jobs nor homes, just bottles and glasses. So instead of Vasya and Roma, just cornflowers and chamomiles.
Not just one of my friends lies on one of these country cemeteries, where warm wind bounces amazed, remembering all the blue crosses by their names.
But all words are vain and nothing can be fixed, so all I can do is to put a bouquet of chamomiles into a tin can.
Let it will just stand there and be the most beautiful on a village graveyard in (of) a country named Russia.

* In Russian, Vasily (Vasek, Vasya) sounds close to "vasilek" (cornflower), and Roman (Roma) reminds "romaska" (chamomile).
* Counterfeit vodka was frequent in Russia during period of "democratization" (1990s) when normal production of everything stopped; it was often made using technical-grade spirit (i.e. poisonous).
