Судно
Molchat Doma Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Эмалированное судно
Окошко, тумбочка, кровать
Жить тяжело и неуютно
Зато уютно умирать

Эмалированное судно
Окошко, тумбочка, кровать
Жить тяжело и неуютно
Зато уютно умирать

И тихо капает из крана
И жизнь растрёпана, как блядь
Выходит как бы из тумана
И видит: тумбочка, кровать

И я пытаюсь приподняться
Хочу в глаза ей поглядеть
Взглянуть в глаза и разрыдаться
И никогда не умереть, никогда не умереть

Никогда не умереть
Никогда не умереть
Никогда не умереть
Никогда не умереть

Эмалированное судно
Окошко, тумбочка, кровать
Жить тяжело и неуютно
Зато уютно умирать

Эмалированное судно
Окошко, тумбочка, кровать
Жить тяжело и неуютно
Зато уютно умирать

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of the song "Судно" by Molchat Doma describe a person's life residing in a dull and unpleasant environment. The use of "enamel ship" as a metaphor for a cramped living space filled with only the basic necessities, highlights the bare minimum efforts taken to sustain their livelihood. The singer talks about how difficult it is to live in the space amidst the continuous dripping of water from the tap, which symbolizes the burden of life that constantly weighs one down. However, the singer finds comfort in the fact that the space offers tranquillity in death.


In the second verse, the singer wishes to lift themselves up to see the person they love, with whom they want to make eye contact and weep. The repetition of the line "Never die" conveys the singer's aspiration to live forever with their loved one. The song is a contemplation of the themes of love and death, and how the two intersect.


Overall, the song uses vivid metaphors and symbols to paint a gloomy picture of the human experience, but also alludes to the hope and comfort that one can seek even in the worst of circumstances.


Line by Line Meaning

Эмалированное судно
This song speaks about a cold and uninviting Soviet housing block. A type of building known as an emalirovannoe sudno or 'enamelled vessel', probably so named due to its shape and colour.


Окошко, тумбочка, кровать
The apartment being sung about contains a small window, a bedside table, and a bed. The picture being painted is one of sparseness and minimalism.


Жить тяжело и неуютно
The singer conveys the sense of struggle and bleakness of life that was prevalent during the Soviet era. For many, day to day living was a constant grind.


Зато уютно умирать
The bleak tone of the song takes a stark twist with the lyrics 'but at least it's cosy to die here'. Euthanasia was not a legally sanctioned form of death in the Soviet Union and the sentiment is a reflection of the oppressive atmosphere of the time.


И тихо капает из крана
The singer describes the sound of a dripping tap. The sound is symbolic of their feelings of the struggle and isolation of their life.


И жизнь растрёпана, как блядь
A deeply emotive line, the lyrics talk about a life that has become messy and tattered, like that of a harlot. It's a stark indication of the difficulty of life at that time in history.


Выходит как бы из тумана
The singer describes their life in the apartment block existing as if in a mist. This is reflective of the dreary, grey blocks that encapsulated life in the Soviet era.


И видит: тумбочка, кровать
As the artist's vision becomes focused, they see only the small elements of their surrounding room, the bedside table and bed, highlighting how little there is to draw hope or colour from.


И я пытаюсь приподняться
In a wavering attempt to gain some control and sense of power over his/her circumstance, the artist attempts to sit up/gain control.


Хочу в глаза ей поглядеть
Whether 'she' refers to an individual or to death itself, the singer is seeking a final gaze of understanding or acceptance before passing.


Взглянуть в глаза и разрыдаться
The singer longs for a moment of deep human connection, which moves him to the point of tears, knowing that this may never be possible.


И никогда не умереть, никогда не умереть
Repetition is common in the lyrics of Molchat Doma, probably for effect. In this case, the singer repeats the line 'never to die, never to die' for added emphasis on the bleakness and finality of life they perceive.

Это песня сделанная по мотивам стиха писателя Бориса Рыжего. И оригинал этого стиха звучит так:
Эмалированное судно, окошко, тумбочка, кровать.
Жить тяжело и неуютно, за то уютно умирать.
Лежу и думаю:
Едва ли, вот этой белой простынёй
Того вчера не укрывали,
Кто нынче вышел в мир иной.
И тихо капает из крана,
И жизнь растрёпана, как блядь.
Выходит как бы из тумана
И видит: тумбочка, кровать.
И я пытаюсь приподняться,
Хочу в глаза ей поглядеть.
Взглянуть в глаза и, - разрыдаться.
И никогда не умереть.
