I'm tired of this year 
It brought me this sorrow 
Oh, please hurry up dear, 
Please bring me tomorrow

I feel Earth is shaking - 
It landed to this la-aaand. 
I`m tired of waiting

My feet being here 
But my mind and my heart 
Are still being there

It`s there this minute 
My goodness, I`m so far - 
Still hard to conceive it. 
But I/now know my life will change -

And I can even hear! 
Its steps!! 
It`s come to my door !!!

7.2 New Millennium Is Coming!

look forward guy!
and see
just (five) one year(s) left
to this
amazing event
called millennium!

So, raise
your head in joy
And scream
with cruelty
'cause then,
you man will be
in the next one thousand years!
yes! one thousand years!
Realize only, one thousand years!
And you are on the verge of these years!

you understand
what happens?!
what it is ?!
how many people lived
in the last one thousand years!

So, how
do you feel yourself
in this
lucky number of men
who will observe
the switch of millennia
i.e. four digits at the same time
i.e. one nine nine and nine
become two owe owe and owe

oh oh oh oh...

how a while ago you thought
about this crazy date
and won't believe it would
really happen in your life!

And then
you will recall of those
who could not make it, who
who hoped with you
to see this new millennium
and they're not here to see this new
oh, oh, millennium
oh, oh, in millennium

Left (psychotic) voice: "I'm one of those very few, lucky few to see
this new millennium! Will I survive?! Is there a life after mill...?!"
Right (reflective) voice: "Who lived with you, who loved with you
who also hoped to see as you, this new millennium. Long ago you talk
with your grandpa about it. It was so inconceivable. Was it you?..."

Вспомни как в дестве когда-то
ты даже поверить не мог
И вот через каких-то 2 года
Это произойдет!
Пришествие этого
Этого третьего
Третьего тысячелетия!

Просто даже не верится
Что это случится при нас.
О Боже, что за нелепица
когда же наступит сей час?!
Пришествие этого
Этого третьего
Третьего тысячелетия!

7.3 Raise your heads!

1: Raise your heads!
Look around with open eyes!
Straight your backs!
Meet the life with child surprise!
        Winds encourage you
        Birds invite you to
        make the first free step!
        Sun-rays warm your heart
        when you get to start
        and your wings will clap

S plech vstrjakhni ne nuzhnyjj khlam!
Pochuvstvujj zhizn'!
Ovladejj svoeju mohh'ju sam!
        Veter okryljaet
        Pticy priglashajut
        Tebja v polet!
        Solnce sogrevaet
        Travy uteshajut
        I dusha poet.

And if you saw how much I loved you,
       you would not be so cruel        
       and might allow to hold you (dear)
       and I would feel alive (like in this song)  

7.4 You are a liar (Ты - лгун)

Я прошу тебя не ври,
ибо чтоб , ты потом не говорил,
Я поверить Тебе не смогу
я буду знать, ты - лгун.

Да ты - лгун!

Но несмотря на мой совет,
ты улыбаешься в ответ.
Да мне вообще всё равно
что ты скажешь мне, но
имей в виду,ты - лгун.

Да, ты - лгун!

I advise you not to lie, 
because lies will ruin your life. 
No matter how much later you will try
People won't believe you, knowing you are a liar. 

You are a liar.
You are a liar.

(Do not listen to this guy)
(Do whatever you would like)
(Just keep making all your lies)
(I'll be your friend forever)
(You'll be my slave forever)

But you don't not care about my advice, 
And continue making all your lies. 
How much more proof you need to realize 
That you fell victim of your own lies! 

7.5 Money

Noone needs money
nobody needs them
nobody wants them
nobody ever will
they do not bring joy
they will destroy love
they are the source of evil


time will come one day
next year or today
when people will be saying
we do not need them
we will not help them
make all of us their prey

7.6 I remember the last day of my life

I remember the last day of my life
It was sunny day with the blue sky
And the birds were singing the melody
which nobody knows better than me.

And the skies were so blue and the wind's high
And a cloud resembled my niece's smile
And the air was full of tranquility
And I felt it like never before

A morning star looked at me in a winter dawn
I could feel how it trembles, new day was born
I could feel how it shined how it sounded
It was sound of my mom's lullaby

May 1996


7.7 When skies were so blue

When I was so young and skies were so blue
When the air was fresh and full of something new
I looked around with open eyes
and never wondered what would be with me
what would be, what would be, what would be.

Now it seems that all is gone and gone for good
I know you must have felt the same - it's understood
So many years passing by
I keep forgetting whom I once have been,
I have been, I have been, I have been. (oh no-oh, oh)

A-a-a ah ...

Now somehow I feel so callous, it's so bad
Where that open, genial smile that I had
It looks that I'm a different man
and only tired eyes remind that boy
oh boy, oh boy, oh boy. (oh no-oh!)

April 30, 1996. Edmonton


7.8 Shut In

I'm lonely and listless
tossing and turning
comforted only by my duvet

I'm life-worn and loveless
sitting and starring
shut in a day after long painful day

I'm used up and useless
aching and asking
will this emptiness, please, go away?

I'm forlorn and forgotten
waiting wondering
will my life change if I learn to pray?

I know there's a future
but life takes such effort
I don't have much reason to stay

I'm aging and ageless
as time slowly passes -
I turn twenty four today...

7.9 Rebirth

It should be easy to come
It should be easy to go
It should be so, o-o,
somehow though
it's never like that.

And you don't know what's wrong
And you don't know what's up
And nobody can help,
can help you somehow
It should be easy to go...
But no.

And then you try again
You try to ease your mind
You tell yourself:
"Hey, man, you're not an ordinary one"

And then it seems it helps
And it feels alright
But then it comes again
And you don't know why.
It should be easy to go...
But no.

So, now it's time
to say Goodbye
To all the fears
of yesterday
Open your eyes,
release your mind
Be who you are,
not whom you were!
(And feet will lead you to your goal)

You see the life is great
You see it is a game
the game you play,
the game you watch the game you create.

You let yourself enjoy -
it's only up to you.
You take command of your life
and then you know what to do.
It should be easy to go
and it
will so!


7.10 Age - L’age - Возраст

You ask me, how old am I, am I? 
I tell you, it depends how do you count - 
If are age is defined 
by the years from birth, 
I`m younger than you no doubt. 
But if by the years, which left to death, 
I am much older than you, I guess. 

Tu me demandes quelle est mon age 
Et je te dis que ?a depend de comment tu comptes - 
Si l'age est measur?e d'apr?s l'ann?e de naissance, 
alors je suis plus jeune que toi, pas de question. 
Mais si d'apr?s les ann?es qui nous restant avant la mort, 
je suis pas mal plus viex que toi. 
C'est que je croix. 

July 1997

7.11 My heart

One day you`ll find you life is over
With every little thing and you'll be gone
And then you tell yourself "No it can't be over!"
And then you tell yourself again
"Not it is not done!"


My heart is strong enough
I can do anything
I can go anywhere
And I can dance and sing

And never mind that it's
a little hard this time
I know I can do that
and I will be just fine

I must be just tired
just tired, just tired, I'm.
I must be just tired
just tired, just tired, I'm...

My friends told me I look much older now
Than I did a year ago
But I stepped outside and then I found
that air is as fresh as it was before!

The sky is blue again
Birds singly lo-ve-ly
And everything is the same
Everything but not me!
