    Aftermath of 2013 - Happy New Year 2014

     
    The New Year 2014 Joke

    OUR RESPONSE TO SOMEBODY LOOKING LIKE SNOWDEN-GUY

    Let say that Snowden’s eclipse was out of bounds of decency pop-up and that that neo-Popper was not right in everything (it is better seen from above, right?), but at least we already know about what the Russian cosmonauts’ song (an anthem, by the way) is!

    GRASS AT OUR LAWNS

    Earth’s look is always touching
    Earth’s look is always touching
    We like to linger at portholes
    As son feels mother’s kindness
    As son feels mother’s kindness
    So sad we for The Earth as it’s alone

    And all the stars are nonetheless
    And all the stars are nonetheless
    Just slightly closer keeping insensate
    The same at eclipse hours
    The same at eclipse hours
    We see Earth dreams awaiting for a light

    We don't see at sleep the rumble of the spaceport
    The either way we're not about any icy world
    But we prefer to see a dream about grass at lawns
    The green one grass to "going green" on Earth

    The flights at space are orbital
    They're always unpredictable
    The traffic is permeated by meteorites
    Approved the risk and bravery
    The traces for unusual we listen to,
    Supporting just a little business talk

    The Earth's look went some hazy way
    Portholes watch still's scheduled
    The evening and the early dawn
    The son feels mother's kindness
    The son feels mother's kindness
    The Mother waits for son as Earth for sons

    We don't see at sleep the rumble of the spaceport
    The either way we're not about any icy world
    But we prefer to see a dream about grass at lawns
    The green one grass to "going green" on Earth



    ORIGINAL RUSSIAN LYRICS

    Земля в иллюминаторе
    Земля в иллюминаторе
    Земля в иллюминаторе видна
    Как сын грустит о матери
    Как сын грустит о матери
    Грустим мы о Земле она одна

    А звезды тем не менее
    А звезды тем не менее
    Чуть ближе но все так же холодны
    И как в часы затмения
    И как в часы затмения
    Ждем света и земные видим сны

    И снится нам не рокот космодрома
    Ни эта ледяная синева
    А снится нам трава Трава у дома
    Зеленая зеленая трава

    А мы летим орбитами
    Путями не избитыми
    Прошит метеоритами простор
    Оправдан риск и мужество
    космическая музыка
    Вплывает в деловой наш разговор

    В какой-то дымке матовой
    Земля в иллюминаторе
    Вечерняя и ранняя заря
    А сын грустит о матери
    A сын грустит о матери
    Ждет сына мать а сыновей Земля

    И снится нам не рокот космодрома
    Ни эта ледяная синева
    А снится нам трава Трава у дома
    Зеленая зеленая трава

    Happy New Year 2014!
    Tau Ceti Chief in Charge
