lyrics

(english translation below)

Στην απάνω γειτονιά στέλνω σύρματα φιλιά
Στο κλεισμένο σου τσαρδί κάνω εξώδικη σπονδή

Γκελ και γνέψε μου να μπώ δυό γαρίφαλα κρατώ
Τρεις ανάσες βολταϊκες κι άλλες αστρικές ευχές

Μην μ' αφήνεις να πνιγώ στον ξηρό σου ποταμό
θέλω ρεύμα κι αστραπές κούκλα μου και συ τα θες


Άνοιξε και δες μακρυά, είναι η πλάση σε τροχιά
Ήρθε η ώρα για φυγή όλα γύρω συνεργοί

Τι κι αν πάθουμε ζημιά βγαίνουμε απ' την συννεφιά
μην κοιτάς κατω στην γη, βγάλε κοσμική κραυγή

Μην μ' αφήνεις να κυλώ, στον απύθμενο βυθό
θέλω ρεύμα κι αστραπές κούκλα μου και συ τα θες

====
In the upper district, I send messages with kisses
To your locked crib, I make an offering

Come on and let me in
I’ve got two cloves in my hand
Three electric sighs and other astral wishes

Do not let me drown in your dry river
I need lightning and power
My beauty, I am sure you want it as I do

Open and look beyond, life is in an orbit
The time to run away has come
And everything around is an abettor

And if trouble finds us, we will get out of the clouds
Don’t look down at the ground, just scream out loud

Do not let me slip into an unfathomable bottom
I need lightning and power
My beauty, I am sure you want it as I do
