Regina Spektor | Terjemahan Lagu: Genius Next Door

Terjemahan dan Arti Lirik Regina Spektor - Genius Next Door

Some said the local lake had been enchanted
Ada yang bilang danau setempat sudah terpesona
Others said it must have been the weather
Yang lain mengatakan bahwa itu pasti cuaca
The neighbors were trying to keep it quiet
Para tetangga berusaha untuk tetap tenang
But I swear that I could hear the laughter
Tapi aku bersumpah aku bisa mendengar tawa itu
So they jokingly nicknamed it the porridge
Jadi mereka bercanda menjulukinya bubur itu
’cause overnight that lake had turned to thick as butter
Karena semalam danau itu berubah menjadi tebal seperti mentega
But the local kids would still go swimming, drinking
Tapi anak-anak setempat tetap pergi berenang, minum
Saying hat to them it doesn’t matter
Mengatakan kepada mereka itu tidak masalah


If you just hold in your breath
Jika Anda hanya menahan nafas Anda
Til you come back up in full
Sampai kau kembali lagi
Hold in your breath
Tahan nafasmu
’til you thought it through, you, fool
Sampai Anda memikirkannya, Anda, bodoh


The genius next door was busing table
Si jenius di sebelahnya sedang memesan meja
Wiping clean the ketchup labels
Menyeka membersihkan label kecap
Getting high and muttering German fables
Mendapat tinggi dan bergumam dongeng Jerman
Didn’t care as long as he was able
Tidak peduli asalkan dia bisa
To strip his clothes off by the dumpster
Untuk menanggalkan pakaiannya di tempat sampah
At night while everyone was sleeping
Pada malam hari saat semua orang sedang tidur
And wade midway into that porridge
Dan menyeberang di tengah bubur itu
Just him and his secret he was keeping
Hanya dia dan rahasianya yang dia simpan


In the morning the film crews start arriving
Di pagi hari kru film mulai berdatangan
With donuts, coffee and reporters
Dengan donat, kopi dan reporter
The kids are waking up hung over
Anak-anak terbangun tergantung di atas
The neighbors were starting up their cars
Para tetangga memulai mobil mereka
The garbage men were emptying the dumpsters
Orang-orang sampah mengosongkan tempat sampah
Atheists were praying full of sarcasm
Ateis sedang berdoa penuh sarkasme
And the genius next door was sleeping
Dan si jenius di sebelahnya sedang tidur
Dreaming that the antidote is orgasm
Bermimpi bahwa penawar adalah orgasme
