Liquor, Tar & Tomb (Viina, Terva & Hauta)

превод на енглески

Liquor, Tar & Tomb

From bark a mouth
From bark the side of a birch
From bark the roots of hair
Draw their fire
 
From tar a tree
From tar the reasons and consequences
From tar the thoughts
Those covered in tar will comprehend
 
If not liquor and tar and tomb will
Help slice the darkness
Ember will wane, ash will darken
Cold will find home
As chill does the earth
As ash does the condensed
 
So will the woods answer
as it is ploughed
In vain will the snag fall alone
and decompose in loneliness
 
So will the woods answer
as pot and the kettle
We chasten each other
and forget to poke the fire
 
If not liquor and tar and tomb will
Help slice the darkness
Ember will wane, ash will darken
Cold will find home
As chill does the earth
As ash does the condensed
 
Liquor! Tar! Tomb!
Liquor and tar and tomb!
Tomb! Tomb! Tomb!

In no way does the English translation do justice to the Finnish lyrics, but in order to keep the meaning true to the original, you just have to give up on some of the poetic stuff. Also the use of typically very Finnish and culturally original words, and the clever play with the language is very hard to display in English. Tried my best though, hopefully someone finds this helpful Smile
