Tomorrow, Wendy (Concrete Blonde*)

Language: Russian

"A good attempt," but Wendy's still doomed. Apparently mistranslation can only get you just so far. We'll get 'em next time, Wendy!

It is finished now –-
Two ends of time by the neatly connected street,
and one-sided.
It goes for a walk toward the end of the line
and there it meets sides,
which it sees in its heart and reason.

They speak - goodbye –
tomorrow, Wendy's going to die.

During November, under the chilly gray sky (which we can make),
in order to believe the Kennedys are still living, we remove the moon;
Jackie's governing as they speak.

A good attempt –
tomorrow, Wendy's going to die.

I said, "Priest – don't calculate any coming seconds.
God obtained his ass after He was kicked the first time.
It arrived down here, slumming; it had balls.
Was gall necessary to arrive?
Which was necessary: to die, or to forgive after this?
We weren't interested.
Why, I thought he would get interested in us."

Hey hey, a good attempt –
tomorrow, Wendy's going to die.

*Original song by Andy Prieboy
