Перевод песни Genesis – The Lamia

Работает на технологии Яндекс.Переводчика
The scent grows richer; he knows he must be near
He finds a long passageway lit by chandelier
Each step he takes, the perfumes change
From familiar fragrance to flavours strange
A magnificent chamber meets his eye
Inside, a long rose-water pool is shrouded by fine mist
Stepping in the moist silence
With a warm breeze he's gently kissed
Thinking he is quite alone
He enters the room as if it were his own
But ripples on the sweet pink water reveal some company unthought of Rael stands astonished doubting his sight
Struck by beauty, gripped in fright
Three vermilion snakes of female face
The smallest motion, filled with grace
Muted melodies fill the echoing hall
But there is no sign of warning in the siren's call
«Rael, welcome! We are the Lamia of the pool
We have been waiting for our waters to bring you cool»
Putting fear beside him
He trusts in beauty blind
He slips into the nectar
Leaving his shredded clothes behind
With their tongues, they test-taste and judge
All that is mine
They move in a series of caresses that glide up and down my spine
As they nibble the fruit of my flesh
I feel no pain
Only a magic that a name would stain
With the first drop of my blood in their veins
Their faces are convulsed in mortal pains
The fairest cries, «We all have loved you, Rael»
Each empty snake-like body floats
Silent sorrow in empty boats
A sickly sourness fills the room
The bitter harvest of a dying bloom
Looking for motion I know I will not find
I stroke the curls now turning pale in which I'd lain entwined
Oh lamia, your flesh that remains I will take as my food
It is the scent of garlic that lingers on my chocolate fingers
Looking behind me The water turns icy-blue
The lights are dimmed and once again the stage is set for you
