PADAM (kurt #3)

PADAM (kurt #3)

“OFF” (kurt # 3)

One-third full
I woke up in the first third of the night
And I heard the strains from Metallica
Stops the voice of death and suffering
Sung the world’s black red verses
Reminds me of old friends
Companions between wounds and sorrow
Friends while the embers are on fire
Comrade when red is smoldering

I could stand silent in a quiet corner
Among the images and notes that have not died
Looking at memories that never come back
In my long daydream stand alone
And you are not a fairy or a lover
I will not remember you in every dream
While asleep not covered with legs
Until the eyes open and do not come back

Why do not you walk anymore
Stopping the pace of life
Leaving me alone in the struggle
I do not know when I miss
Shouts – shouts in dreams that are too dark
With you friends. . .
Though you’re stopped
Stopped by a predestined death
I still miss you and goodbye friend
I will not remember you and remember death
Together with FADE TO BLACK from Metallica
and TOWNSHIP REBELLION that you inherited

“ PADAM “ (kurt #3)

Sepertiga purnama
Ku terbangun disepertiga malam pertama
Dan ku mendengar alunan nada dari Metallica
Menghentakkan suara kematian dan derita
Melantunkan bait – bait merah hitam dunia
Mengingatkanku pada kawan lama
Sahabat diantara luka dan nestapa
Teman disaat bara api menyala – nyala
Kawan ketika merah membara

Kuhanya bisa terdiam dalam sudut sepi
Diantara gambar dan nada – nada yang belum mati
Memandangi kenangan yang tak pernah kembali
Dalam lamunan panjang ku berdiri sendiri
Dan kau bukan sebagai peri ataupun kekasih
Ku ‘kan slalu mengingatmu disetiap mimpi – mimpi
Saat tertidur tak berselimut kaki
Hingga mata terbuka dan tak ‘kan kembali

Mengapa kau tak lagi berjalan
Menghentikan laju diseperempat kehidupan
Meninggalkanku sendiri diseperlima perjuangan
Tak tau kapan ku ‘kan merindukan
Teriakan – teriakan dalam mimpi yang terlalu kelam
Bersamamu kawan . . .
Walau kau ‘tlah terhentikan
Terhenti oleh sebuah takdir kematian
Ku tetap merindukanmu dan selamat jalan kawan
Ku ‘kan slalu mengingatmu dan mengingat kematian
Bersama FADE TO BLACK dari Metallica
dan TOWNSHIP REBELLION yang kau wariskan
