The House on the Borderland Lyrics – M.J. Hibbett

Singer: M.J. Hibbett
Title: The House on the Borderland

1980s Peterborough
Was not the sort of place
Where you expected psychedelic shops
To drop from outer space

In a haze of paisley patterns
That John Lewis couldn’t know
Playing records that you’d never hear
On Hereward radio

Arriving like a mission
Sent to summon the New Age
Came a wizard, his wife and his brother-in-law
They were Pete and Jayne and Dave

The House on the Borderland
Was this nirvana’s name
After the House on the Borderland
Nothing would be the same

Selling various ephemera
Of a counter-cultural kind
The House on the Borderland
Blew my tiny mind

Me and Pradeep, Sanjiv, Steve and Mileage
In groups of twos and threes
Would make the lunchtime pilgrimage
Down to Gladstone street

To a strangely smelling wonderland
Where Pete purveyed a wealth
Of American comics three months before
They reached newsagents shelves

There were fanzines that revealed to me
New ways to read the world
Also Love and Rockets, Watchmen
Nexus and Dark Knight Returns

At the House on the Borderland
My pocket money flew
To the House on the Borderland
My dinner money too

From outside it might seem dingy
But it shone a rainbow light
From the House on the Borderland
Into another life

Beyond a job at Pearl Assurance
Or career at Thomas Cook
From the ideas that we found there
New horizons opened up

When I was working on my PhD
Concerning Doctor Doom
The texts I analysed remind me
Of that ill-lit room

The shop shut down ten years ago
Pete passed away
Peterborough has craft beer bars now
And a vegan café

Marks and Sparks sell tie-dyed t-shirts
Alan Moore is on TV
Superhero stories belong to the world now
Not just me

No-one needs to walk a mile
To a special kind of shop
To hear a view that’s different
Or to smell a smell that’s odd

But the House on the Borderland
Is open in my heart
Because the House on the Borderland
Is where all this stuff starts

Between the fens and the future
Between conformity and not
The House on the Borderland
Was more than just a shop

The House on the Borderland – Terjemahan / Translation

Peterborough 1980 -an
Bukan jenis tempat
Di mana Anda mengharapkan toko psychedelic
Untuk jatuh dari luar angkasa

Dalam kabut pola paisley
Yang tidak bisa diketahui John Lewis
Memainkan rekaman yang tidak pernah Anda dengar
Di Radio Hereward

Tiba seperti misi
Dikirim untuk memanggil Zaman Baru
Datang seorang penyihir, istri dan saudara iparnya
Mereka adalah Pete dan Jayne dan Dave

Rumah di perbatasan
Adalah nama nirvana ini
Setelah rumah di perbatasan
Tidak ada yang sama

Menjual berbagai ephemera
Dari kontra-budaya
Rumah di perbatasan
Meniup pikiran kecil saya

Saya dan Pradeep, Sanjiv, Steve dan Mileage
Dalam kelompok dua dan bertiga
Akan membuat ziarah makan siang
Turun ke Gladstone Street

Ke negeri ajaib yang aneh
Dimana Pete membersihkan kekayaan
Komik Amerika tiga bulan sebelumnya
Mereka mencapai rak koran

Ada fanzin yang terungkap kepada saya
Cara baru untuk membaca dunia
Juga cinta dan roket, penjaga
Nexus dan Dark Knight Returns

Di rumah di perbatasan
Uang saku saya terbang
Ke rumah di perbatasan
Uang makan malam saya juga

Dari luar itu mungkin tampak suram
Tapi itu menyinari cahaya pelangi
Dari rumah di perbatasan
Ke dalam kehidupan lain

Di luar pekerjaan di Pearl Assurance
Atau karier di Thomas Cook
Dari ide -ide yang kami temukan di sana
Horizon baru terbuka

Saat saya sedang mengerjakan PhD saya
Tentang Dokter Doom
Teks yang saya analisis mengingatkan saya
Dari kamar yang tidak terang itu

Toko ditutup sepuluh tahun yang lalu
Pete meninggal
Peterborough memiliki bar bir kerajinan sekarang
Dan kafe vegan

Tanda dan percikan menjual kaos yang diwarnai dasi
Alan Moore ada di TV
Cerita pahlawan super milik dunia sekarang
Bukan hanya aku

Tidak ada yang perlu berjalan satu mil
Ke jenis toko khusus
Untuk mendengar pandangan yang berbeda
Atau mencium bau yang aneh

Tapi rumah di perbatasan
Terbuka di hatiku
Karena rumah di perbatasan
Adalah tempat semua hal ini dimulai

Antara Fens dan Masa Depan
Antara kesesuaian dan tidak
Rumah di perbatasan
Lebih dari sekedar toko
