Nochnoi Dozor Soundtrack: "Fallen Angel"



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

The dogs left me. The beasts left me.
I dreamed that creatures with eyes like lamps
Grabbed me in their wings in the highest heaven
And I tumbled down as foolishly as a fallen angel.

I don't remember the fall; I only remember
The dull blow of cold stone.
I could really start to fly so high
And slip as badly as a fallen angel.

BRIDGE:
Straight down.
Back to where we left from, hoping for a new life.
Straight down.
Back to where we looked up, hungry for dark blue heights.
Straight down.

I tried to be fair and evenhanded,
And to me it didn't seem so terrible, so strange
That on the earth below me collected multitudes
Come to see just how there falls an angel.

And into open mouths, pasted by the wind
Either with white snow, or with sweet manna,
Or just with feathers, flying in the wake
Of what came tearing down, like a fallen angel.

BRIDGE:
Straight down.
Back to where we left from, hoping for a new life.
Straight down.
Back to where we looked up, hungry for dark blue heights.
Straight down.
Back to where we left from, hoping for a new life.
Straight down.
Back to where we looked up, hungry for dark blue heights.
Straight down.
