Track Name: EMPTY WORDS
My empty words echo in your head
Wings of flying birds take your soul away
Track Name: STREET WALKER
STREET WALKER*
LYRICS bY HRISTO SMIRNENSKI

You have born in the lap of privation,
Your childhood was useless strife,
Today you dance, your eyes full of tears,
To the tuneless violin of life.
Your implacable stepmother, Night,
Is an evil creature of evil fame;
She tore the narcissus from your breast,
And dragged you down the path of shame.
The days and nights drag on unchanged…
When ugly and relentless Death
Arrives
You celebrate the festival of sin
Beneath the street-lamp's dusky light;
No one can hear the pain in your laugh
When you laugh in the quiet night.
Drunk with illusions and deceptive hope,
With a withered hyacinth on your breast,
You return to your dingy little room to dine
With hunger, your one and only guest.
The days and nights drag on unchanged…
When ugly and relentless Death
Arrives in the chilly autumn of your life
To wring from you your final breath.
Track Name: STAN THE STAIN
lyrics by ShemZee

Let me tell you a story bout Stan
He was the main man the singer in a rock band
He had a girl named Sue she was the one
The inspiration for every song he wrote

Stan got addicted to cocaine
Sue left soon and that was the end
of the rock band

Angels sing
Feel the sting
Bleeding strings

Stan sold his fancy car
Right to the devil who just another fake star
No more money left for cocaine
Stan found God and prayed in vain

God lost Stan years ago
Like a dirty stain he was washed n gone
Now all alone in a world of pain
Stan started playing his songs again
Man is alone in the world
he said
Man is alone in the world
Without a girl

Sue came back like a heart attack
She was the only one who wanted Stan back
Stan got on her knees again
Praying to the only one who had the strength
to bear the pain
And he was saved by Love
She prayed for him
And he was saved
Track Name: TILL TOMORROW
Last cigarette,
and then
we"ll hover over Berlin
untill daybreak ....
With clenched teeth
we"ll defend the motherland
from roaring monsters,
we"ll fight,
wild and wicked
though helpless
to the last grenade
to the last bullet
without hope
without moans
without furious shouts
our death is pointless
and the victory - nobody"s

Till tomorrow.
Track Name: HAPPY(YOU SHOULD BE)
Insane…
A little drop of rain is falling
I got no idea where I`m going
I got no time to rhyme my sorrow no no no
I got black yesterday
and bright tomorrow
Freedom…
Insane…
A little drop of rain is falling
I got no idea where I`m going
I got no time to rhyme my sorrow no no no
I got black yesterday
and bright tomorrow

My son you should be happy
You should be happier than me

Maybe you are right, who knows?
Maybe you are right, my dear,
but the pain still tears and gnaws
and I fear, I fear

My son you should be happy
You should be happier than me
Track Name: SPOMEN (RAP VERSION)
Аз имах другар,
добър другар,
но... кашляше лошо.
Той беше огняр –
пренасяше с коша кюмюр,
изхвърляше сгур
дванадесет часа на нощ.

Аз помня очите
на този огняр.
Как жадно поглъщаха тези очи
всички лъчи,
които случайно,
през сажди макар,
се вмъкваха редко
във нашата клетка.

Как бързо се раждаше
трескава жажда
напролет,
когато шумят
листата на двора,
в простора
когато
се стрелкаше ято от птици.

Аз чувствах
как тези зеници се молят,
как страдат,
как тягостно страдат!
Те искаха толкова малка пощада –
до пролет,
до другата пролет...

Тя – пролетта –
дойде прекрасна:
със слънце,
с топъл лъх
и рози.
Далечен,
теменужен дъх
се носеше в небето ясно.
Но вътре беше мрак
и как тежеше
легналата проза...

И тъй,
у нас живота се обърка.
Моторът не работеше добре. –
Започна подозрително да хърка
и... спре.
Не знам защо,
но може би,
защото другият умре.

А може би не е така.
А може би, във своя глад,
моторът чакаше ръка
да хвърли в огнения ад
навреме въглищния пласт.
Да, може би.
Не зная аз.

Но мен се струваше, че той,
в заекващия си брътвеж,
ме питаше с болезнен вой:
"Къде е другия младеж?"

Той – другият – умре.
А ето –
отвън е пролет.
Надалече
се стрелкат птици по небето.
Но той не ще ги види вече.

А бе такъв другар...
Добър другар!...
Но кашляше лошо.
Един огняр.
Пренасяше с коша кюмюр,
изхвърляше сгур
дванадесет часа на нощ.
Track Name: THE SNAKE
The desert sun is killing me
Cold rain is all I need
I`m like a hungry desert snake
shedding his old skin

I give you pain you live in sin
Sweet god your rain is all I need
To wash away the stingin pain
To wash this sins from off my hands

The snake is long seven miles
Feel it`s venom with your eyes
It`s smothering grip will stain your soul
The snake is old the snake is cold
Track Name: MR LOBBA LOBBA
Ah Mr Lobba Lobba s not an evil man
Ah Mr Lobba Lobba does the best he can
Ah Mr Lobba Lobba always understands
Your need to scream in pain
cuz he rules the game

Ah Mr Lobba Lobba rules the neihgbourhood
Ah Mr Lobba Lobba acts a fool so good
When the cops kick down his door
N make him lie like a rag on the floor

Ah Mr Lobba Lobba s not an evil man
Ah Mr Lobba Lobba always understands
An underground ruler of a kingdom black
Ah he loves the riches n he hates the rags
Track Name: RECEIVER
The kitchen tap is leaking
Time quickly ticking
Your life is squeaking
Nothing left to say

Oh I believe her
you would leave her
she`s a friendly gift receiver
so I`d give her
all she needs to pay
for her way back home
some day
Track Name: WE STAND
Dogs!
No future is there left for us
Just an endless wilderness of dust
We`re standing here with hungry eyes
Before you

We stand alone
with our bear hearts
before your ranks
in paper uniforms
with toy guns
you fight with fear
we fight with love
our tears
will lead the way
to freedom
you will pay
believe me

Die!
No future is there left for us
Just an endless wilderness of dust
We`re standing here with hungry eyes
Before you grandmasters of demise


We stand alone
with our bear hearts
before your ranks
in paper uniforms
with toy guns
you fight with fear
we fight with love
our tears
will lead the way
to freedom
you will pay
believe me
