Els Dies Tranquils Lyrics

Calla, Azbe, i escolta
aquest silenci vast,
ferit d'aromes i colors terribles.
Ara s el temps
que els arbres s'equivoquen
i els ocells, desesmats,
mosseguen les tres cares de la nit.
Ning no resa
dins la casa dels somnis.

Ning no cau pels escalons del cel.
I la precisa
maquinria del temps, fulgent prodigi
de peces i engranatges, va girant
de cap enrera,
roent, xerriquejant:

Torna la llet
a les sines pansides; lentament
la carn es despodreix i les arbredes
arrelen cap al cel;

la llum

retorna cap al sol, passat la lluna,
i un du de pedra sura sobre el mar.
Tu i jo,
dola i trgica Azbe,
encara no hem nascut.

[English translation:]

Now is when all nature dies
Human nature darkens skies

When all is lost
I look to you and you alone
I seek shelter from the rain

All I have done Ive done for you
And you cant live with that
You want everything I am

Back in a time when things were dark
A veil of dim obscurity
From the mould of clay we came to earthen jars of weariness

From where we came to where we are
Bodies of life to veins of vinegar
We were so pure, where are we now?
Faith in man forfeits its lure

Punctured by smells and fierce colors
White hot, streaking
Shining in the sky
One last streak until I die

One last flame until I go
You mean all to me that...
