If You Want To Stay Here
(The "Crash" Discotheque)


All the melodies - sung,
All the poems were written.
It's a shame our thoughts cannot yet be transmitted.
Maybe it is a breeze barley flapping my lips,
Maybe it is my scream, coming out as a hiss.

If you want to stay here,
No need for rationale,
May your dreams include a pleasant ocean and champagne,
It's far past twelfth hour,
But you are still my guest
You're tired and need resting ?
Well, then, here you can rest.

All the rumors of past thousand ages discussed,
And guitar was forgotten for few hours past,
(And you are tired of songs at last.)
On the watch you throw down a disturbed look...
NO !
IT'S NOT YET THE TIME !
DON'T FLEE !
DON'T GO AWAY !
BE WITH ME !
SING WITH ME !
SPEAK HEART BY HEART WITH ME !
NEAR THE DOOR TURN AROUND FOR A BEAT !
CITY TODAY WILL BE WET
STREETS WILL BE QUIET AND SAD,
EVERYBODY TO BLOCKS WILL FLEE
BEHIND LOCKS
AND CONCRETE,
SAD WINDOWS LOOKING DOWNBEAT...
NO ! IT'S STILL NOT THE TIME !
PLEASE WAIT !
WHERE ARE THE WORDS ?
WHERE ARE STORIES, PHRASES TOO OLD ?
WHERE IS ALL THAT'S NOT TOLD ?
LEAVING, BRIDGES BURN DOWN,
WITH YOU WILL ALWAYS BE ONE WHO YOU ARE SMILING TO NOW...

ALL THE MELODIES - SUNG,
POEMS, ALL LYRICS, ALL EPICS CREATED,
NATURE'S LAWS FORMULATED,
TALK SHOWS DEBATED,
ALL THAT'S LEFT TO SAY IS THAT
I WANT TO BE WITH YOU,
LIVE A LIFE WITH YOU,
LOVE A LIFE WITH YOU,
LIVE BELOVED BY YOU,
EVERY DAY SHARE MY LIFE WITH YOU,
TO LEAVE HOME
AFTER MAKING THE BED,
TO GIFT LIFE WIYH YOU,
TO ADORE THE KIDS WE WILL GET !
STREETS WILL BE QUIET AND SAD,
CITY TODAY WILL BE WET,
MAYBE THIS MELODY IN NOISES OF RAIN YOU'LL RECIEVE...

JUST TURN BACK WHILE YOU LEAVE...
MABYE THIS MUSIC WILL HAUNT YOUR SLEEP TILL YOU SCREAM ?
MAYBE THIS STORY IS NAUGHT BUT A DREAM ?
MAYBE IT IS A BREEZE BARELY FLAPPING MY LIPS ?
MAYBE IT IS MY SCREAM, COMING OUT AS A HISS ?

If you want to stay here,
No need for rationale,
May your dreams include a pleasant ocean and champagne,
It's far past twelfth hour,
You live so far away
We'll think up an excuse
But in the morning, while awake.

If you want to stay here,
No need for rationale,
Shame we can't ride into dawn from our society's chain,
It's far past twelfth hour,
You need to let it go,
You're doomed to return here
And to fall asleep too soon.

If you want to stay here,
No need for rationale,
May your dreams include a pleasant ocean and champagne,
It's far past twelfth hour,
You live so far away
We'll think up an excuse
But in the morning, while awake.

If you want to stay here,
No need for rationale,
Shame we can't ride into dawn from our society's chain,
It's far past twelfth hour,
You need to let it go,
You're doomed to return here
And to fall asleep too soon.

Okay... So, this a 2005 song from my country, and...

... It starts as a calm, average song.
... It drops some double-entendre (ex. Here you can rest [for the night].) and ominous phrases ex. "Maybe it is my scream, coming out as a hiss." "No need for rationale", etc.
... It's self-referential: there's text about songs and melodies, and how they "are all written", how they want to haunt you, but and fail to deliver their message.
... It abruptly changes it's style to a faster, very desperate, and heart-broken rapping exploring the themes of obsessive love, isolation, loss of meaning.
... Then, it combines the two previous points by questioning it's own efficiency, truth, and existence.
... And then it reverts back to first style, perhaps a bit more cute.

Doesn't it sound familiar ?
