Nochnoi Dozor Soundtrack: "Hieroglyph"

Ieroglif (Hieroglyph)
Lyrics and Music: Edmund Sklyarskiy
Group: Picnic
Album: Nochnoi Dozor soundtrack, 2004
Translation: Maureen S. O'Brien, 8/16/05

My name -- the Hieroglyph Erased.
My clothing, patched with wind.
What I bear in my closed palms
They don't ask, and I don't answer.

And as before a battle,
A decisive battle,
I stand at each crossroad.
On an asphalt sea, I see my own shore,
Its scattered blue.

At all the questions,
I break out in quiet laughter.
To all, all the questions
A reply there won't be.
Really, my name is -- Hieroglyph.
My clothing's patched with wind.
