    I don't know, I don't like all translated phrases. Maybe a native should express an opinion. In general the conception of the song is correct but I disagree in some translated details.

    For example in the beginning it says

    друг за другом and the translation it gives is
    Per another friend

    Well, I don't understand this english expression. I would say "One after another"

    and later, referring to the two lives inside him says
    (in russian)
    и две жизни параллельных
    спорят во мне одном

    translating it as
    are debating inside me

    I disagree with that, спорить is when someone argues, at times intense. In other words the two lives inside him don't debate (politely) but argue with each other.

    And then

    Ты всё знаешь как большая энциклопедия
    translating it as
    If all you know, mostly the full encyclopedia????????????

    I really don't get this. I would translate

    (since) You know everything as if you were a big encyclopedia
    explain to me.....


    And later on

    Я выбираю себя
    doesn't mean If I choose her! It means "I choose myself"

    So the songs says
    Я выбираю себя - не попадаю
    I choose myself but don't find myself
    я выбираю её и пропадаю
    I choose [my second self] and I get lost

    also
    замечаю shouldn't be translated as "I'm looking myself" but I would say
    and I notice


    Well, these were in general lines my remarks. I hope I haven't omitted something. If someone thinks I did, then he/she is welcome to add comment or even corrections.
