@siren : This sounds like a challenge to me though! I'll try it and if I think the english version's good, I'll post it!

@Hitori : "ils jettent" is roughy meaning "they throw away"

@Rampage: a rough word-by-word translation would be perfect for me actually, it might even help me remember my french. if you don't want to post that though you're welcome to pm me anytime.

Therefore , I'll pm you that word-to-word translation and I'll try and translate it in a more poetic way.

^a nyctalope is someone who sees better during the night than the day. Cats, for instance are nyctalopes.

I was skimming my old notebooks, and found some that you might like.

Room With A View

An ordinary
Room with a view
Offers consolation
And peace

The walls breathe
Their mouths smelly
With decades of
Observation

The trees outside
Shiver fearless
Steep slopes descend
To the old town

The factory mordors
Burn in the distance
But a puzzle-piece
Of the outlook

A lifetime spent
Looking for it
A depressed soul
Found its rest

The doors shut
The music playing
The night welcomes
The armchair lover

Content within
Relaxed yet focused
Solitude soaked
Dosing

The perfect grain of sand
In the heart of a desert


The Bee-Hive

The swarm of bees
Animates the trees
Circulating force
Round the royal centre

Motionless, knowing
But still talking
A strange body-talk
Resounding in their bellies

There the wildhoney ripens
A perfect mixture of juices
Thrown up to nourish
Our greedy mouths

So near us we have it
The symbol of perfection
So similar we seem to be
Yet so far from home

We talk - all mouth
Removing our hairs
Waltzing through life
Trying to remember the steps

Nourishing the landfills
With our weekly vomit
Circulating force
French-kissing the ground

But still...
Resounding in our minds
Buzzing in our sexes
The order of life

I figure I'd revive this dying thread because I had a lot of free time at work last week and I ended up making my first full song parody of DT (lyrics only of course)

There it is, I rendered Tongues a surrealist and ridiculous stream of words.

The original:

Tongues, lost in me
yours be the sharp and the vile
Glide ‘neath my skin
storm through my nerves

I bury the nomad years
hours in the earth
couldn't exorcise these searing, pecking tongues
Immune you say
yet venom strikes in strangest guises
as the viper in our eyes
Tongue, throat, tongue
slayer of the word and stealer of vision

A monumental reign of terrors
throats slit up to stain the target
We're food for the hounds of trauma,
prey to the crows of stress

No power left to retrieve my stolen language
filtered through the illiterate fingers of death

Flies
let sickness be poured
from the cupped hands of bedlam
To gather the fruits, fruits from my words

On account of their brightness
I made friends with the word and the moon
went with the tide and left for the sound
of dead instruments thrown out of tune

The red squared patterns, dragonrise and
evenclaw
decoying from pandemonic symmetry

Let ring
a dissonant note in the music of the spheres
the streak of promise in the nuclear sky
These whipping black tongues
aching to lick me back to life redefined
to inject their truths within me now



and the...yeah.

Pogs, lasting fee
Years beat a shark in one mile
Glad knee mask in
Stormtroop might serve

High berry denim made ears
Ours indie hurt
Covert exercise migs soaring, fishing pogs
Hymn under sleigh
Niet vein aims truck estrange gauges
Taz the victor inner highs
Pog, trout, pog
Slay her on the board and stiller night vision

Amon Amarth peng off beaver
Frog lit up toasting tar net
Weird foot forge hinds often raw
Play-doh deploys Hostess

No plow a theft tourist thrive maelstrom anal gauge
Phil third true dill uttered figures of debt

Miles,
Of pointless bee porn
Form the topped enough bed lamb
Together the roost of beamsword

On a count of debried Ness
High maid Fred Wayne's World under moo
When twit divid an elf on the ground
Undead excrements snowing in june

Thorough squaw hard Patton
Drag and rise that Robert Shaw
Decor yin from pan demon ink sim a tree

Lettering
Add his son ant noting Dimmu's lick off Disfear's
District off pro miss indie new Clarisse tie
Daze weeping backbones
A king tool ink Maibec to lie Fred is fine
Towing jet their routes waiting meow

Done a demo for the demo of my bands song Blizzard... only really did it cos the drummer doesn't get the feel right on certain parts so had to make it right for him.

www.myspace.com/snowofficial

Need to add vocals, bass and do mastering... but sounding ok so far. The last breakdown is amusing if you get that far.

Myspace is just really on and off. It's working for me though, so I'm not sure. I'm uploading the final thing on to putfile anyway.

EDIt

Blizzard

Putfile - BLIZZAAARDD < stream it if you can't work out how to download from copying the link adress above.

Download link.

Cheers guys

Had to do an experimental creative project for uni, so using 'The Prose Edda' as an aleatoric device I created this piece of ambient piano music:

Putfile - The Ashes of Ragnarok

Mint! if I do say so myself. HAHAHA
