THEME by GUYIN

"I am interested in this hazy hinterland between wakefulness and sleep as a timeless, boundary-less purgatory state, free from the rules of everyday existence."

Track: Песенка про паучков
"Pesenka pro pauchkov" ("Spiders' Song") Artist: Янка Дягилева [Yanka Dyagileva] Album: Последняя Акустика ("Last Acoustics")

Spiders in a jar look through the walls
Run around like a dragonfly's eyes
A slanted skid at the edge

Spiders in a jar wanted to survive
To see the sun after a stretch of void
Mouth full of crushed glass

Spiders in a jar were looking for holes
Devoured each other trying to climb to the top
Snapped at a fly's wing

Spiders in the jar were gazing at the sky
It was half an hour before the end - almost half the force
And our time has run out
Spiders in a jar
And our time has run out

Spiders in a jar - downwind to eternity
And our time has run out

Track: Ангедония ("Anhedonia")
Artist: Янка Дягилева [Yanka Dyagileva]
Album: Ангедония ("Anhedonia")

A short match, my destiny is: going back home
Through the fresh snow, through the red blood on the road
Eating conifer needles, so bitter, so bitter, so bitter
Spreading gold dust over the head-broken ice

Sacred places are deserted, which means [jumping] from the bridge into the skies
It means a jam in the morning bus filled with anguish
An end that starts at the beginning,
My head doesn't fit into the glass.

Have to get to the clinic by eight A.M., leave a sample of blood for testing
An admissible amount of amassed dirt
Wet cigarettes, damn, damn, damn, leaking boots,
Knives in the bootlegs, change jingling, jingling, jingling in the pockets

A blindman stands beside the window, composing a heavenly song
The happy blindman is teaching a caged bird to sing along with a violin
A law-abiding thief
If you'd ask him, he'd leave you his keys as a deposit

Anhedonia, the diagnosis is: a total absence of joy.
An anti-war army, an anti-fire flame.
A possessed third-grader wearing a too-big cap with a red star on it
Has killed a pup - he's gonna be a good soldier

And what about interchanging the positions of the oblivion and the pain? Is it too much for you?
And what about getting lost in the woods and falling asleep in the dark? Is it too much for you?
Bandaged bliss,
A swamped urban disctrict

Spreading flowers over cold stone tile
They have killed me, so I have to pay back
Hey, History loves heroes, History is waiting for you
Behind every corner, with a sure remedy for all failures in its hands

And what about talking about love in the candlelight?
And what about begging pardon?
Orthodox dust,
Guide signs pointing to the light, pillars of salt.

Eating conifer needles, so bitter, so bitter, so bitter
Anhedonia, anhedonia, anhedonia

Track: Нюркина песня
"Nyurkina pesnya" ("Nura's Song") Artist: Янка Дягилева [Yanka Dyagileva] Album: Стыд и Срам ("Shame and Reproach")

She set out the rags on the floor
She threw the cards-clubs around corners
She lost her happiness in the spring
Lost her earrings-beads at the guests’

White light hits the eyes like burning dust
White poem hits the ear with false rhythm
White snow in the fields like a torn scarf
White dream in morning like a tired prayer

The wall turned out like female truth
The silence roars and thrashes
Upon strangers’ simple words as if on hands
Upon stood up legs, upon the heads

Old tea in the cracked glass
Old affairs not enough to take off
On photographs there are star and dreams
How do you make everyone happy

All that was she remembered herself
Sweeped the kitten from the window by tail
The men brought liquor and cognac
And explained what is what in the world
Those by the window – go away

The cold from the Ob spread at night
Remember more often your sun
As the wind bends not the branch
As the oak trees do whisper
