lyrics

(english translation below)

Έχω φυλακιστεί σε μπουντρούμια πολιτείες μέσα έχω κλειστεί,
Δείξε μου πως δραπετεύω πού ‘μαι μέσα καιρό
Και ξεχνώ στο παλιό τραγούδι τον ντελίριο χορό

Λυχναράκι σβηστό, λίγο λίγο αρρωστώ

Βάστα μην σπαράζεις άλλο άφωνη κραυγή

στην ψυχή μιαν ανάσα κέρνα σαν δροσιά την αυγή

Έχω μάθει αλλιώς, σε μπαλκόνια ν' αγναντεύω
Και ο χρόνος σκαστός, να χτενίζει αγάλι αγάλι του ουρανού τα μαλλιά
Να με ρίχνει μέσα πάλι στη γυμνή αγκαλιά

Τύλιξε με ξανά στα κρυφά δειλινά
Βάστα μην σπαράζεις άλλο άφωνη κραυγή
Στην ψυχή μιαν ανάσα κέρνα σαν δροσιά την αυγή

Θιασώτες βουβοί, φάρσα μοιάζει η ζωή μας
Κολυμπήθρα θολή, βούτηξα και βγήκα λύκος, ούρλιαξα στη σιωπή
Μ' άκουσαν τα στέρφα βράδια και τα πήρ’ η ντροπή

Σαλταδόρος βραχνός, της ηχούς αδερφός
Βάστα μην σπαράζεις άλλο άφωνη κραυγή

στην ψυχή μιαν ανάσα κέρνα σαν δροσιά την αυγή

Σώπα μην σπαράζεις άλλο άφωνη κραυγή

Όπως πριν θ' αντηχήσεις μες στην ροδαλή χαραυγή

====
I’ve been jailed in cities, detained in cells,
festering behind bars for so long
Show me how to break free
I keep forgetting the delirium trip from that old melody

Drowned flame, I’m sinking day by day

Hold on. Weep no more, breathless shriek
Spirit nursed by breath sweet as dew at dayspring

I’ve learned otherwise,
to gaze at the clouds from balconies,
As time gently brushes the blue,
Throwing me back to the bosom, nude

Wrap me up once more, in secret twilights

Hold on. Weep no more, breathless shriek
Spirit nursed by breath sweet as dew at dayspring

Voiceless like pilgrims, life is like a farce
A Muddy baptistery; I jumped in as a human, emerged as a wolf
I howled in silence
The barren nights heard me and hid their faces in shame

Hoarse Prancer, brother of Echo

Hold on. Weep no more, breathless shriek
Spirit nursed by breath sweet as dew at dayspring
Quiet now. Weep no more, breathless shriek.
You will echo again on a ruddy Dawn
