Constant Thirst (k. d. lang)

Language: Russian

This could have gone better, I suppose. K. d. lang doesn't often offer one a lot of words to work with.

Darkest through the flat section,
be it thick or thin,
someone marches bravely, always
under my skin. Here it is.

(to thirst constantly, always)

The largest possible magnet draws
out all truth to the showers,
or, possibly, life will be
very giving of wisdom.
It will be, to the youth.

(a constant thirst)

Always to thirst, to thirst:
ah-ha, it's always constant.

It's constant thirst; it
is constant thirst, always.

To always thirst, to thirst:
ah ha! It's constant, always:
always always always always always. . . .
