Nochnoi Dozor Soundtrack: "Demons"



Besi (Demons)
Lyrics and Music: Vyacheslav Butusov
Group: Nautilus Pompilius
Album: Nochnoi Dozor soundtrack, 2004
Translation: Maureen S. O'Brien, 8/16/05


I ripened spiritually through the bright,
Bright and clear days.
My gaze turned white as a monastic bed.
I bear his fire, not hiding, not fearing to be burned by him
But hear how terrible it sounds as he knocks on the window
Blizzard --
Every tangle of snowstorm, this snowstorm is alive.
The lamplight's reflected by evil icechip eyes.

Demons call out in the cold to go out with the snowstorm
There where dead water is, there where gas clouds the mind.
White walls, keep us, save us
Without a mirror, in which be temptations
Without words, in which be misfortune
My silence -- my prayer
Darkness -- my sick sister
While I live, while I live they won't enter here,
They won't enter here...

Demons ask to serve, but I serve noone.
Even you, even myself, even those of authority,
And if He still lives, I don't serve Him either.
I stole exactly enough fire not to have to steal more.
Demons crash on the roof, on the roof. A night like this
Is a long night for him, for him who cannot wait.
But she flies off quicker, quicker than a bird.
If I hadn't known for sure, I wouldn't have begun to guess.

White walls, keep us, save us
Without a mirror, in which be temptations
Without words, in which be misfortune
My silence -- my prayer
Darkness -- my sick sister
While I live, while I live they won't enter here,
They won't enter here...
