Verse 1: When the stars shone so brightly They prepared for attack He had no chances You’ve been fooled this time A sniper’s bullet right between the eyes You know he won’t come back The war is over – now you’re alone You’ll grow up, the young girl Life will change fast, but you Won’t forget how good it was Just to look in his eyes Just to feel his arms around Your neck and his lips Chorus: Eternal sorrow Eternal torture No tomorrow Worth dying for Eternal madness Eternal horror So many victims The price of war Verse 2: Once again you can’t help But to wonder how can they Decide, who’s gonna die Thousands boys, far from home Follow blindly the orders of those Who don’t care at all Bridge: And where, where do we go now? What can be done to stop this dread? Will there be a new tomorrow? And who will answer for the dead? © Aleksandr Imaykin, 2013
Imperfect 03:47
Verse 1: Noone is perfect I don't think it's worth it To try to follow The rules that they made It is not easy But you don't believe me Although I mean All the things that I said Why can't you find just some place In your heart for me 'Cause I can't Stand to be treated like that Will you let me stay? Or should I better go away? Verse 2: Do you remember We thought we would never Allow anything To stay between us? Something has changed Now I'm feeling deranged 'Cause everything is Falling apart Chorus: Take my heart Take my soul I don't need Them anymore Will I find what is right? Will you rescue My life? © Aleksandr Imaykin, 2013
Verse 1: Lost in the swirl of opportunities Not knowing which way to go Longing for sense of a unity Keeping her head very low Chorus: She’s crying out for love to be found She’s crying out not making a sound She’s crying out for love to be found She’s crying out not making a sound Verse 2: Her sorrows soon will be over She needs to wait for a while She won’t be crying no more Her lips will blossom with smile © Aleksandr Imaykin, 2013
Bad Habits 02:21
Once there was a guy who drank so hard - SO HARD He was not very old, not very smart - NOT SMART He drank all through the day He drank all through the night And now he doesn't drink - He died at thirty-nine. Once there was a guy who smoked a lot - A LOT He even tried some weeds and tried some pot - SOME POT He fought a deadly cancer Nothing he could do And now he doesn't smoke - He died at thirty-two. Once there was a guy who scored chicks - SOME CHICKS And every other night he showed them tricks - SOME TRICKS A very jealous husband A pistol in his hands And now he doesn't score - Was shot at twenty-eight © Aleksandr Imaykin, 2013
Verse 1: Another sad picture when you look around Another dead body that lies on the ground Seventeenth floor and no turning back A plunge into darkness, fading to black Alone in the world No will to live They all will regret You’ll never forgive Chorus: Kick the chair right down under me Leave me hanging in this misery Verse 2: Newspapers are raving about the death Why would someone choose to stop his own breath? No answer found, the chapter is closed An innocent child – forever lost Nothing is done Nothing to prove Another poor kid Stands on the roof © Aleksandr Imaykin, 2013
As we sail through the dark And follow the stars Only water surrounds our ship And we know that one day We’ll moor to the land But one thing we will never forget This Distant waves Distant waves Distant waves Time will flow and for all Our longing for home We will put out to open blue sea And I want to hear again The sound of the wind And I want once again to be with This Distant waves Distant waves Distant waves © Aleksandr Imaykin, 2013
Verse 1: Turn on the screen Turn your brain off For what you will see You don’t need it at all There are no reasons for thoughts or regrets Like it or not, you will watch what they get You’ve got no control Ads always there They don’t care for you They’re after their share The moment you turn on your big TV screen Your mind is in danger – brainwashing begins Chorus: It’s a brain manipulator And it’s not worth it at all You’ll become a mindless puppet If you do not stop your fall It’s not too late to take control To put this to an end Smash the evil with a hammer Take your life in your hands Verse 2: A waste of your time You don’t understand It’s just a crime Someday you’ll repent You still can do something, you have a choice Do not get lost, do not low down your voice Once and for all You have to decide What’s gonna be Don’t lose your pride Everything’s going to turn out just fine If you are able to go over the line © Aleksandr Imaykin, 2013
