Patti Smith - Birdland

His father died and left him a little farm in New England.
Ayahnya meninggal dan meninggalkannya pertanian kecil di New England.
All the long black funeral cars left the scene
Semua mobil pemakaman hitam panjang meninggalkan tempat kejadian
And the boy was just standing there alone
Dan bocah itu hanya berdiri di sana sendirian
Looking at the shiny red tractor
Melihat traktor merah mengkilap
Him and his daddy used to sit inside
Dia dan ayahnya dulu duduk di dalam
And circle the blue fields and grease the night.
Dan lingkari ladang biru dan beri minyak di malam hari.
It was if someone had spread butter on all the fine points of the stars
Itu jika seseorang telah menyebarkan mentega pada semua titik-titik bintang yang indah
'Cause when he looked up they started to slip.
Karena ketika dia mendongak mereka mulai tergelincir.
Then he put his head in the crux of his arm
Lalu dia meletakkan kepalanya di bagian tengah lengannya
And he started to drift, drift to the belly of a ship,
Dan dia mulai melayang, melayang ke perut kapal,
Let the ship slide open, and he went inside of it
Biarkan kapal terbuka, dan dia masuk ke dalamnya
And saw his daddy 'hind the control board streamin' beads of light,
Dan melihat ayahnya 'di belakang papan kontrol streamin' manik-manik cahaya,
He saw his daddy 'hind the control board,
Dia melihat ayahnya di belakang papan kontrol,
And he was very different tonight
Dan dia sangat berbeda malam ini
'Cause he was not human, he was not human.
Karena dia bukan manusia, dia bukan manusia.

And then the little boy's face lit up with such naked joy
Dan kemudian wajah anak kecil itu bersinar dengan kegembiraan telanjang
That the sun burned around his lids and his eyes were like two suns,
Bahwa matahari membakar kelopak matanya dan matanya seperti dua matahari,
White lids, white opals, seeing everything just a little bit too clearly
Tutup putih, opal putih, melihat semuanya hanya sedikit terlalu jelas
And he looked around and there was no black ship in sight,
Dan dia melihat sekeliling dan tidak ada kapal hitam yang terlihat,
No black funeral cars, nothing except for him the raven
Tidak ada mobil pemakaman hitam, kecuali gagak gagak
And fell on his knees and looked up and cried out,
Dan berlutut dan melihat ke atas dan berteriak,
“No, daddy, don't leave me here alone,
\"Tidak, ayah, jangan tinggalkan aku di sini sendirian,
Take me up, daddy, to the belly of your ship,
Bawa aku, ayah, ke perut kapalku,
Let the ship slide open and I'll go inside of it
Biarkan kapal terbuka dan saya akan masuk ke dalamnya
Where you're not human, you are not human.”
Di mana Anda bukan manusia, Anda bukan manusia. ”

But nobody heard the boy's cry of alarm.
Tapi tidak ada yang mendengar tangisan bocah itu.
Nobody there 'cept for the birds around the New England farm
Tidak ada seorang pun di sana kecuali burung-burung di sekitar peternakan New England
And they gathered in all directions, like roses they scattered
Dan mereka berkumpul di segala penjuru, seperti mawar yang mereka hamburkan
And they were like compass grass coming together into the head of a shaman bouquet
Dan mereka seperti rumput kompas yang menyatu di kepala karangan bunga dukun
Slit in his nose and all the others went shooting
Celah hidungnya dan yang lainnya pergi menembak
And he saw the lights of traffic beckoning like the hands of Blake
Dan dia melihat lampu lalu lintas memberi isyarat seperti tangan Blake
Grabbing at his cheeks, taking out his neck,
Meraih pipinya, mengeluarkan lehernya,
All his limbs, everything was twisted and he said,
Semua anggota tubuhnya, semuanya bengkok dan dia berkata,
“I won't give up, won't give up, don't let me give up,
\"Aku tidak akan menyerah, tidak akan menyerah, jangan biarkan aku menyerah,
I won't give up, come here, let me go up fast,
Saya tidak akan menyerah, datang ke sini, biarkan saya naik cepat,
Take me up quick, take me up, up to the belly of a ship
Bawa aku cepat, angkat aku, naik ke perut kapal
And the ship slides open and I go inside of it where I am not human.”
Dan kapal meluncur terbuka dan saya masuk ke dalamnya di mana saya bukan manusia. \"

I am helium raven and this movie is mine,
Saya gagak helium dan film ini milik saya,
So he cried out as he stretched the sky,
Jadi dia berteriak saat dia membentangkan langit,
Pushing it all out like latex cartoon, am I all alone in this generation?
Mendorong semuanya seperti kartun lateks, apakah saya sendirian di generasi ini?
We'll just be dreaming of animation night and day
Kami hanya akan memimpikan animasi siang dan malam
And won't let up, won't let up and I see them coming in,
Dan tidak akan reda, tidak reda dan saya melihat mereka masuk,
Oh, I couldn't hear them before, but I hear 'em now,
Oh, aku tidak bisa mendengarnya sebelumnya, tapi aku dengar sekarang,
It's a radar scope in all silver and all platinum lights
Ini adalah ruang lingkup radar di semua perak dan semua lampu platinum
Moving in like black ships, they were moving in, streams of them,
Bergerak seperti kapal hitam, mereka bergerak, mengalirkannya,
And he put up his hands and he said, “It's me, it's me,
Dan dia mengangkat tangannya dan dia berkata, \"Ini aku, ini aku,
I'll give you my eyes, take me up, oh now please take me up,
Saya akan memberi Anda mata saya, angkat aku, oh sekarang tolong angkat aku
I'm helium raven waitin' for you, please take me up,
Aku gagak helium menunggumu, tolong bawa aku,
Don't let me here,” the son, the sign, the cross,
Jangan biarkan aku di sini, ”sang putra, tanda, salib,
Like the shape of a tortured woman, the true shape of a tortured woman,
Seperti bentuk wanita yang disiksa, bentuk sebenarnya dari wanita yang disiksa,
The mother standing in the doorway letting her sons
Sang ibu berdiri di ambang pintu membiarkan anak-anaknya
No longer presidents but prophets
Bukan lagi presiden melainkan nabi
They're all dreaming they're gonna bear the prophet,
Mereka semua bermimpi mereka akan menanggung nabi,
He's gonna run through the fields dreaming in animation
Dia akan berlari melalui ladang bermimpi dalam animasi
It's all gonna split his skull
Itu semua akan membelah kepalanya
It's gonna come out like a black bouquet shining
Ini akan keluar seperti buket hitam yang bersinar
Like a fist that's gonna shoot them up
Seperti tinju yang akan menembak mereka
Like light, like Mohammed Boxer
Seperti cahaya, seperti Mohammed Boxer
Take them up up up up up up
Bawa mereka naik ke atas
Oh, let's go up, up, take me up, I'll go up,
Oh, ayo naik, naik, bawa aku, aku akan naik,
I'm going up, I'm going up
Aku naik, aku naik
Take me up, I'm going up, I'll go up there
Bawa aku, aku naik, aku akan pergi ke sana
Go up go up go up go up up up up up up up
Naik, naik, naik, naik ke atas, ke atas
Up, up to the belly of a ship.
Naik, hingga perut kapal.
Let the ship slide open and we'll go inside of it
Biarkan kapal terbuka dan kita akan masuk ke dalamnya
Where we are not human, we're not human.
Di mana kita bukan manusia, kita bukan manusia.

Well, there was sand, there were tiles,
Nah, ada pasir, ada ubin,
The sun had melted the sand and it coagulated
Matahari telah melelehkan pasir dan membeku
Like a river of glass
Seperti sungai kaca
When it hardened he looked at the surface
Ketika mengeras dia melihat permukaan
He saw his face
Dia melihat wajahnya
And where there were eyes were just two white opals, two white opals,
Dan di mana ada mata hanya dua opal putih, dua opal putih,
Where there were eyes there were just two white opals
Di mana ada mata hanya ada dua opal putih
And he looked up and the rays shot
Dan dia mendongak dan sinar menembak
And he saw raven comin' in
Dan dia melihat gagak datang
And he crawled on his back and he went up
Dan dia merangkak di punggungnya dan dia naik
Up up up up up up
Naik ke atas ke atas
Sha da do wop, da shaman do way, sha da do wop, da shaman do way,
Minum dengan wop, melakukan dukun, mencukur, wop, melakukan dukun,
Sha da do wop, da shaman do way, sha da do wop, da shaman do way,
Minum dengan wop, melakukan dukun, mencukur, wop, melakukan dukun,
Sha da do wop, da shaman do way,
Sha dan lakukan wop, dukun lakukan,
We like birdland.
Kami menyukai birdland.
