Who sings thinks no evil

Since it’s Azra, this must be Trpanj. They go together so well. And yet, only the latitude matches.
“Who is singing over there” by Azra / Azra: Tko to tamo pjeva 

Translated by Manja Maksimovič

where do we go from here
compatriot
crowned heads stick out from the sand
where do we go from here
compatriot
crowned heads stick out from the sand
what are they doing?
farting into dust

kamo dalje
rođače
iz pijeska vire krunisane glave
kamo dalje
rođače
iz pijeska vire krunisane glave
što to rade
prde u prašinu

i have a feeling
compatriot
that standard has turned the people sour
they eat shit and daydream

čini mi se
rođače
da je standard pokvario ljude
jedu govna i sanjare

it will improve
compatriot
take off the medals and fill up the halls
the trophy street has run out of steam

bit će bolje
rođače
skini medalje i napuni sale
ulici trofeja ponestaje snage

abandoned girls
junkies and harlots
count on you

ostavljene djevojke
narkomani i bludnice
uzdaju se u tebe

Not my Balkan.

armoured boats
were taking you to all four sides
you were truly consistent

blindirani brodovi
vozili te na četiri strane
zbilja si bio dosljedan

and so generous
compatriot:
managing other people’s pain
is no small fucking feat

i velikodušan
rođače
raspolagati tuđom mukom
nije mala zajebancija

it will improve
compatriot
take off the medals and fill up the halls
the trophy street has run out of steam

bit će bolje
rođače
skini medalje i napuni sale
ulici trofeja ponestaje snage

abandoned girls
junkies and harlots
count on you

ostavljene djevojke
narkomani i bludnice
uzdaju se u tebe
