Lyrics for Leaving the Garden

SAULELĖ RAUDONA / THE RED SUN

LT
Saulelė raudona per visą dangų eidama
Beeidama raudojo mane už rankos vesdama

gale ilgo lauko aukštas miškas miega
bruknėm dangaus skliautą raganos iškaišę

dangaus kampe pakibęs mėnulio dalgis verkia
ant dalgio ašmenėlių mano širdelė paverta

EN
the red sun was crossing the sky,
’twas weeping while walking
leading me by a hand

at the end of a long field a high forest is sleeping
the hexes have the skies adorned in bilberries

in a corner of those skies there’s the scythe of the moon weeping
on the blades of the scythe there’s my heart pierces bleeding

[2010]

TYLIOJI / THE SILENT ONE

LT
mano galvoj išaugo medis
mano šakom linguoja gulbės
gervės lizdus delnuos susisuko
akies vyzdy drugys margas
aš vijoklio stiebu prisirišus tarp
tarp dirvos ir dangaus
supsiu vai supsiu
mėnulio dalgį savo burnoj
[mano galvoj išaugo medis]
kiekvienam lizde
po saulašarę žydi
kiekvienam žiede
laumės tinklus veja
supsiu dalgį burnoj

EN
a tree grew out of my head
the swans swing on my branches
the cranes built their nests in my palms
there’s a colorful moth in my eye
i’ve tied myself with the stem of a creeper
between the soil and the sky
way i’ll sway
the scythe of the moon in my mouth
[a tree grew out of my head]
there’s a sundew in every nest
in every blossom there’s a
pixie winding the nest
way i’ll sway the scythe in my mouth

[07 2010]
