Venetian Snares "Senki Dala" (album: "Rossz Csillag Alatt Született" - Planet Mu, 2005)


Le Vampire

Toi qui, comme un coup de couteau,
Dans mon coeur plaintif es entrée;
Toi qui, forte comme un troupeau
De démons, vins, folle et parée,

De mon esprit humilié
Faire ton lit et ton domaine;
— Infâme à qui je suis lié
Comme le forçat à la chaîne,

Comme au jeu le joueur têtu,
Comme à la bouteille l'ivrogne,
Comme aux vermines la charogne
— Maudite, maudite sois-tu!

J'ai prié le glaive rapide
De conquérir ma liberté,
Et j'ai dit au poison perfide
De secourir ma lâcheté.

Hélas! le poison et le glaive
M'ont pris en dédain et m'ont dit:
«Tu n'es pas digne qu'on t'enlève
À ton esclavage maudit,

Imbécile! — de son empire
Si nos efforts te délivraient,
Tes baisers ressusciteraient
Le cadavre de ton vampire!»

Koichi Sugiyama "Eternal Sorrow" (album: "Sea Prince and the Fire Child - Original Soundtrack" - Sanrio, 1981)


Είμαι βέβαιος πως κάπου στο διαδίκτυο υπάρχει ένα blog ολοκληρωτικά αφοσιωμένο στα Ιαπωνικά soundtrack ταινιών σαν το Sea Prince & The Fire Child και σε συνθέτες σαν τον Sugiyama (ή τον Takashi Miki, τον Shun'ichi Tokura, τον Tadao Inōe και κάμποσους άλλους). Είμαι εξίσου βέβαιος πως θα είναι γραμμένο στα Ιαπωνικά οπότε δεν μπαίνω καν στον κόπο να το ψάξω. Μέχρι να εμφανιστεί κάτι όμως, ακούστε τούτο εδώ.

Nick Drake "Time had told me" (album: "Five Leaves Left" - Island Records, 1969)


Time has told me
You’re a rare, rare find
A troubled cure
For a troubled mind

And time has told me
Not to ask for more
For someday our Ocean
Will find it’s shore

So I’ll leave the ways of making me be
What I really don’t want to be
Leave the ways that are making me love
What I really don’t want to love

Time has told me
You came with the dawn
A soul with no footprint
A rose with no thorn

Your tears they tell me
There’s really no way
Of ending your troubles
With things you can say

And time will tell you
To stay by my side
To keep on trying
‘til theres no more to hide

So leave the ways that are making you be
What you really don’t want to be
Leave the ways that are making you love
What you really don’t want to love

Time has told me
You’re a rare, rare find
A troubled cure
For a troubled mind

And time has told me
Not to ask for more
For someday our ocean
Will find its shore

My Dying Bride "The dreadful hours" (album: "The dreadful hours" - Peaceville, 2001)


Mother will you take me down?
I have become so afraid
Mother please, please take me down
Sorry, your boy is not brave

Child just hold on.
Night will soon be gone
Sleep if you can.
But watch your father's hand

We do not want you.
No-body loves you
Father of the dark.
Tonight will greet you

God in heaven,
can you hear me
Help me, oh, Lord.
They're coming for me
Mother warned me.
Father scorned me
Oh my God. No.
Now I hear Him

I

claim your life
on this night
within sight
of your own God
The silence, the waiting
then the pain
Oh child,
sleep will be here soon
Your life
has only ever been shame
And so young boy, my hand brings
 doom

Child
won't you awake
Father has gone
Child
please come awake
Please
my tiny son.
