Russian Roulette [ Russkaya ruletka (Русская рулетка) ]

traduzione in Inglese

Russian Roulette

Across the worrying dusk,
The smoke of cigarettes,
The candle's flame is reflected in the nervous mirror.
I am seated at the table
There is a pistol on the table
I am playing a game intended for strong men.
 
I laugh at myself.
I draw moustaches on myself
You don't know exactly who I am.
I am the energy of an explosion.
I am the echo of a storm.
For an instant I am not dangerous,
But only for an instant.
You don't even know how much all of this
Will be serious.
I stay for two hours in front of the dawn
And still a question remains unresolved:
 
Who are we? -
Do unknown people come from different worlds?
Or are we, perhaps,
Collateral victims
Of spontaneous anger?
You know just how hard it is
To pull the trigger,
This world
Is so beautiful a second before the explosion...
 
Yesterday, you lost your shadow
Inadvertently,
And today, it's not you, but she who pays me a visit,
We're going to play a little
Here in the obscurity:
The pistol, me, and the shadow
Try to understand...
Alas, I don't know anything else
How all this was serious.
Your shadow, unfortunately, cannot reply
To my simple question:
 
Who are we? -
Do unknown people come from different worlds?
Or are we, perhaps,
Collateral victims
Of spontaneous anger?
You know just how hard it is
To pull the trigger,
This world
Is so beautiful a second before the explosion...
 
We punish one another
With the highest level of despair,
To remove this night from our memory...
Here there is nothing other than a ball,
Don't worry.
I turn the cylinder,
And this ball is for me....
And now I know perfectly how all this
Is serious,
Because the silence is equally the response to my absurd question:
 
Who are we? -
Do unknown people come from different worlds?
Or are we, perhaps,
Collateral victims
Of spontaneous anger?
You know just how hard it is
To pull the trigger,
This world
Is so beautiful a second before the explosion...
 
Who are we?
Who are we?

Russkaya ruletka (Русская рулетка)

Сквозь тревожные сумерки,
Дым сигарет,
Отражается в зеркале нервное пламя свечи.
Я сижу за столом.
На столе пистолет.
Я играю в игру для сильных мужчин.
 
Я смеюсь над собой.
