If You Want To Stay Here
(The "Crash" Discotheque)


All the melodies - sung,
All the poems were written.
It's a shame our thoughts cannot yet be transmitted.
Maybe it is a breeze barley flapping my lips,
Maybe it is my scream, coming out as a hiss.

If you want to stay here,
No need for rationale,
May your dreams include a pleasant ocean and champagne,
It's far past twelfth hour,
But you are still my guest
You're tired and need resting ?
Well, then, here you can rest.

All the rumors of past thousand ages discussed,
And guitar was forgotten for few hours past,
(And you are tired of songs at last.)
On the watch you throw down a disturbed look...
NO !
IT'S NOT YET THE TIME !
DON'T FLEE !
DON'T GO AWAY !
BE WITH ME !
SING WITH ME !
SPEAK HEART BY HEART WITH ME !
NEAR THE DOOR TURN AROUND FOR A BEAT !
CITY TODAY WILL BE WET
STREETS WILL BE QUIET AND SAD,
EVERYBODY TO BLOCKS WILL FLEE
BEHIND LOCKS
AND CONCRETE,
SAD WINDOWS LOOKING DOWNBEAT...
NO ! IT'S STILL NOT THE TIME !
PLEASE WAIT !
WHERE ARE THE WORDS ?
WHERE ARE STORIES, PHRASES TOO OLD ?
WHERE IS ALL THAT'S NOT TOLD ?
LEAVING, BRIDGES BURN DOWN,
WITH YOU WILL ALWAYS BE ONE WHO YOU ARE SMILING TO NOW...

ALL THE MELODIES - SUNG,
POEMS, ALL LYRICS, ALL EPICS CREATED,
NATURE'S LAWS FORMULATED,
TALK SHOWS DEBATED,
ALL THAT'S LEFT TO SAY IS THAT
I WANT TO BE WITH YOU,
LIVE A LIFE WITH YOU,
LOVE A LIFE WITH YOU,
LIVE BELOVED BY YOU,
EVERY DAY SHARE MY LIFE WITH YOU,
TO LEAVE HOME
AFTER MAKING THE BED,
TO GIFT LIFE WIYH YOU,
TO ADORE THE KIDS WE WILL GET !
STREETS WILL BE QUIET AND SAD,
CITY TODAY WILL BE WET,
MAYBE THIS MELODY IN NOISES OF RAIN YOU'LL RECIEVE...

JUST TURN BACK WHILE YOU LEAVE...
MABYE THIS MUSIC WILL HAUNT YOUR SLEEP TILL YOU SCREAM ?
MAYBE THIS STORY IS NAUGHT BUT A DREAM ?
MAYBE IT IS A BREEZE BARELY FLAPPING MY LIPS ?
MAYBE IT IS MY SCREAM, COMING OUT AS A HISS ?

If you want to stay here,
No need for rationale,
May your dreams include a pleasant ocean and champagne,
It's far past twelfth hour,
You live so far away
We'll think up an excuse
But in the morning, while awake.

If you want to stay here,
No need for rationale,
Shame we can't ride into dawn from our society's chain,
It's far past twelfth hour,
You need to let it go,
You're doomed to return here
And to fall asleep too soon.

If you want to stay here,
No need for rationale,
May your dreams include a pleasant ocean and champagne,
It's far past twelfth hour,
You live so far away
We'll think up an excuse
But in the morning, while awake.

If you want to stay here,
No need for rationale,
Shame we can't ride into dawn from our society's chain,
It's far past twelfth hour,
You need to let it go,
You're doomed to return here
And to fall asleep too soon.

A song about time
(Vladimir Vysotsky)
(I may not entirely agree with the song's central message)

Fort of time is entrenched and it's entrance concealed
In a net of the green creeping vines,
And it seems gray and bleak, but it's silence is weak, you need only to ask and the granite will speak,
Of war campaigns,
Assaults
And the triumphs...

Time have never erased any glory
Flay it's skin to uncover insides,
Or chokehold it without a hurry -
And it will give away what it hides...

[cue epic march with trumpets for until the end of the next verse]

Hundred locks will lock off !
Hundred bolts will fall off !
Hundred clocks will tick off
Heaps of years of it all !
And the legends will spill,
Hundred verses each of !
Of tourneys, of the sieges, of epic standoffs !

And prepare to hear all the songs you're tired of,
And respect to the purest of virtues,
For the thing we call love we will always call love,
Even in the most distant of futures.



Steel have shattered under the blows with a bell,
Barrels smoked from assault on evictors,
Death was sitting on pikes, screaming horrible yell, foes for mercy have pled, as in mud they have fell,
Giving up to
The mercy
Of victors...

It is sad, but not every survivor,
Had his heart in the goodness remain,
Thus protecting from dastardly liar
Purity of his own honest name...

[march with trumpets for next verse]

It is good if your horse,
Had just bitten the lid !
And your hand on a spear
Can hold it with a grit !
It is good if it's known
Who gave you fatal hit,
Worst - be killed by a sneaky, dishonest misfit !

What will be with the scum ? Beaten down ? That is fine !
Witches don't scare you down with their vultures ?
But the things we call vile we will always call vile,
Even in the most peaceful of futures.

...

And for all of the times, and as long as there's light,
Fearful traitor is always despised,
Foe is foe, and the war is the war, day and night, and the prison is tight and the freedom is bright,
And it's always
Fought for
And promised...

The time never erased those ideas,
Flay it's skin to uncover insides,
And a stream of the eternal feelings
From it's throat will be poured on us...

[march with trumpets for next verse]

Now, forever, for all
Of the times - The Old Times !
And the price is the price !
And the vice is the vice !
All is good when the honor
Is not sacrificed !
When a friend by your side can protect and advise !

What is clean ? What is good ? We look up to past days.
Sagas, tales - all from the long-gone cultures -
For the thing we call grace we will always call grace,
Present, past, or the wildest of futures.

(I may not entirely agree with the song's central message)
