Lavana II: Hardest Harvest

The irony of Socrates I paired with Marxist prophecies, Swilled antifreeze and Hennessies - Whatever burnt the throat My homebrew social remedies Could have raised the dead Kennedys A cure that's worse than the disease - But now I found my road Read grumbling Heide-Heide-Heidegger Foucault sang to me like a nightingale, And all the fearsome mighty Ger- -mans filled my head with haze With Kantian imperatives I deconstructed narratives Took other mental laxatives But now I changed my ways! - Has critique run out of steam? Rode to hell but now I'm saved Ain't it great how I found faith: I believe - In nothing! Lived in sin now I'm behaved Ain't it cool how I found faith: I believe - In nothing! Believe in nothing, Believe in nothing! I focused inner energy In Babylonian theurgy Tried zen and tao and tai chi Shaved like a Buddhist monk My homebrew vinous alchemy Made witches very welcoming, Saw Cernunnos in Kilkenny (Or maybe I was drunk) As taught by Mega-Mega-Therion I kept my cool and put the kettle on The recipe for cakes was wrong - I never liked the taste Took right turns on the left-hand path The Great Priest was a psychopath I stopped the chant and did the math: It all turned out a waste - Ol sonf vorsg goho iad balt!

Там вдалині виднокіл сміється вогнем Тут уночі розквітає вибухом твердь Доки ми маримо небом, ми не живем Доки спимо, ми не вільні бачити смерть Наші боги пам'ятають темні часи Ми офіруємо сльози, зерна і плоть Ми віддаємо їм ймення і голоси В тиші нас легше на порох перемолоть День нам майбутнє кістками вистеля Давні борги нам належить повернуть Наприкінці залишиться тільки земля З неї прийшли і у неї держимо путь

Žaždu zemli davno Vodoj uže ne utolitj. Estj lišj toljko odno, Čto možet eë napoitj. Čtoby žili my, Čtoby naša zemlӓ Obiljno zoloto žita rodila, Ej nužno, čtob krovj eë okropila; Čtoby žito rodila, Čtoby zakolosila, Živaӓ, gorӓčaӓ, alaӓ krovj Otdast černozëmu spolna svoü silu. Tӓžkoj doli prolivatj Krovj svoix ne izbežatj, No gorazdo boljše krovi Nam svoej podarit Vrag! Tankovye traki na podsolnuxovom pole, Kotël i okruženie, vystup i duga — Basnӓmi o bratstve i prizyvami k smirenjü Polnӓtsӓ detalӓmi obrazy vraga. Kto teperj tvoj brat, Zemli tvoej kto kat? Vmesto vora našej voli Stanet kto zoloü v pole? Prežde čem zemli kosnëtsӓ oralo, I mërtvoe pole stanet pašnej, Zemlü vzboronӓt minnye traly, Zaseüt sorvannye tankovye bašni. Prežde čem s zemli podnimutsӓ rostki, Čto napitaüt eë dočj i eë syna, Zemlü napitaet železo broni, Železo v globulax gemoglobina. Iskateli lëgkoj voinskoj slavy, Glašataj vozvrata nenužnoj deržavy, Zaraznyj boljnoj imperskoj čumoj — Oni nikogda ne vernutsӓ domoj! Iskateli vygody v gore čužom, Lixoj čelovek na kone voronom, V svoëm že narode žalkij izgoj — Oni nikogda ne vernutsӓ domoj! Lovсy čelovekov v mutnoj vode, Podžëgšie dom soseda v bede — Zdesj obryvaetsӓ putj ix zemnoj, Oni nikogda ne vernutsӓ domoj! Oni nikogda ne vernutsӓ domoj — Ix ukroet černozëm. S olivkovoj vetvjü ili s mečom, Na şite ili so şitom, S krasnoj zvezdoü ili s krestom, Vsex ukroet černozëm… Vsex ukroet černozëm.

May the water gently Smother sleeping ships Tiptoe through the windowpanes On paws of silk Slip by guard and sentry; Brush against your lips, Eyes like hurricanes Whipping blood and milk. Seriously now, What did we expect? - Standing in her path With our stones and sticks Seriously now: Gaze at her aspect - The mesmeric depth Of the river Styx. May the water gently May the water gently May the water gently Rise
