Vladimir Vysotsky. Life Is Twisted.

Commentary to “A Ballad of the Bath-House”.

This ballad narrates about the men on the Heights, that are such souls as are not decidedly on the side of merit or decidedly on the side of sin, but evenly bal­anced on a partition be­tween heaven and hell, and who hope for the mercy of Allah, glory be to Him (or, in other words, about the souls in purgatory).
