Pavel Kashin - Messenger On Fire


Messenger On Fire

Messenger on fire
Crying but aflame
What are you inspired with?
And what"s your final aim. Tell me
Why your eyes are glowing
With a yet unknown shine
Why are they riveted
On mine?
Messenger on fire
Is there any use?
In speeches so inspired, in their carrying
So much truth for men
Why are your seething words
Disquieting my sleep
Why do they sink in me
So deep?
Messenger on fire, please, tell me
Why your glowing word
Seeks to forge my tired heart
Into a pointed sword.
To find in me a hero
To light in me a flame
I've to tell you, hear me. I"ve
Been throught much the same
Messenger on fire
I've wandered in a quest
Crying with desire to be a
Model for the rest
Convincing my beloved
That there was justice in the fight
I thought were was no darkness
In the light
Messenger on fire
Take your sacred scroll
Gallop to your sire
Tell him straight that all I want is
Quiet for my people
When nothing can be done
To give them their moment
In the sun
Messenger on fire
Rent you scroll apart
Wild in desire
Humble in the heart
I didn't want to be a novel
Where all would perish in the end
Not knowing that the vessel was
Messenger, I fear
Your effors were in vain
I promised to my dear not to
Cause or suffer pain. I promised
If there is a cause to fight
To nip it in the bud
I promised not to taint my faith with blood
thanked 2 times

PZ, how could you? I dislike this immensely. It makes no sense! [@pinchus zelenogorsky]

Вы про качество английского языка (тут я судить не берусь) или про качество лирики? Стихи, мне кажется, прекрасные.

More like very selfish that you liked this over other songs I added. My bad!

Поэзия - это всегда внутренний диалог. Писать надо о том, что знаешь. Автор разговаривает со своим ангелом (Маша бы сказала "музом") и приходит к некоему соглашению. Что ж тут особенно эгоистичного? Наоборот, он ищет баланс с миром. Послушайте русский текст, подумайте. Он же не себя называет "пламенным посланником". Скорее грустно иронизирует.
Прекрасная песня
