Keep to the Roots

Песня: Держаться корней

Перевод: Татьяна Малькова


They paint walls brown and write words on the roofs,
Have ginger lemon for breakfast and count a ruble for two.
It would flatter me to come home to them
And to prove to be stronger.
But in order to stand, I've got to keep to the roots.
You may buy a new Hi-Fi for yourself,
Or just be going to the food store,
Or meditate on the ceiling poured over with cheap vine,
Put your head into the TV screen
And think that you'll get cleverer.
But in order to stand, I've got to keep to the roots.
They say that her lips
Have become like mercury today,
That she has gone too far, that she cannot be brought back.
But is there at least one among us who could go her way all along,
Or say what we owe to her?
But the further it will be the stronger,
Everyone remembers the fathers, but is calling for mothers,
And they say that it is more fun at their's,
In the house where the lights are never turned off.
But in order to stand, I've got to keep to the roots.
So build your budget upon the stocks of the wine
That is kept in your storages.
Eat at the expense of those who feed you,
Forget about the others.
And I could be like you,
And this would be more correct.
But in order to stand, I've got to keep to the roots.
