Track Name: Flycatchers
You will never ask yourself about
Empty things you did just to be in crowd
Empty words you said with your empty voice
Cause all you want in life - freedom from choice.

Your mind is free from everything
You are no use to anyone
You do not even try to live
You do not matter anymore

Chorus:
Take a deep breath, sit back, enjoy your ride
You may catch flies or you may change your life
Existence in this world is just a waste of time
Forget about insects and start to clear your mind!
Take a deep breath, sit back, enjoy your ride
You may catch flies or you may change your life
Existence in this world is just a waste of time…
Clear your mind!

Every day is just a copy of a copy
Every move leads you to nothing – one more step… back.
Around you so many flies – does it mean something?
And this sick cruel world stands on your neck.

Your mind is free from everything
You are no use to anyone
You do not even try to live
You do not matter anymore

Chorus.

Bridge:
Just another simple man
Who leaves nothing to this world
Just another captured fly
Something wrong, oh, something wrong… [x2]
Fuck! Eat! Drink! Die! [x7]
Fuck!


Take a deep breath, sit back, enjoy your ride!
You may catch flies or you may change your life!
Track Name: Less Than Three
Chorus:
Free yourself
Show your mind
And tell me something about me.
Less than three
That’s your love
Now close your heart and hide the key.

Bridge:
Come on! You are pathetic!
Oh, don’t you know?
Come on! Don’t be ascetic!
Come on, come on!

1) Yeah, everything had happened at night
There was no wrong and no right
Just waterfall of our thoughts
And tension of one million watts.
Two mouths are no longer one tongue
But these days will not die unsung
Because I was
The man with the sweet spike inside.
(All your words do not mean
Anything to me at all.
All your thoughts make me feel
You will never break this wall)


Chorus.

Break.
Could you stop dope out?
Oh, could you just drop dead?
Forget about this for a second
Calm down and…

Tell me the one thing – yes or no? (x2)
If you want to make me hurt – don’t do it slow!
Tell me the one thing – yes or no? (x3)
If you want to make me hurt – don’t do it slow!
Tell me the one thing - yes or no?..

2) You see my eyes are burning
With a half-dead inner fire?
You see my lips are bleeding?..
At least I am not a liar!
C’mon, don’t make me antsy
And start to clear the memories
If you’ve already started this –
I want to face your madness!
(All your words do not mean
Anything to me at all.
All your thoughts make me feel
You will never break this wall)

Chorus.
Track Name: Scars On The Face
Every
Falling
Makes you
Stronger.
Essence
Of world
Is false
You know.
Come on
My friend
You should
Try hard.
listen
you can
Reach all
Should fight.

Close your eyes
You will rise
Feel your heart
Inside... Come on, wake up

You were lied
Find a sign
Take a place
At world... Getting scars on the face!

Your days
Counted.
We will
Laugh at
Staying
A slave.
Have no
Escape.
If you
Don't run
For life
The one.
Scary
Darkness
Will Make
Flightless.

Close your eyes
You will rise
Feel your heart
Inside... Come on, wake up

You were lied
Find a sign
Take a place
At world... Getting scars on the face

Won't
Forgive
Sins...
There is no God
Won't be knock out

Should
Escape
This...
Break your chains out
Throw your beast shout!

Throw your beast shout...
Break your chains out.

Let's close our eyes
An we will rise
We feel our hearts
Inside... Come on, wake up!

We were lied
Let's find a sign
And take a place
At world... Getting scars on the face!
Track Name: Sky Of My Last Night
1) There is the star
In the sky
Want to see it
And say goodbye
I’m so sick
And feel the poison inside.

Pain can’t last
So am I.
Wanna see you
In the light
Of the moon...
All of my last night.

Chorus:
Now
I’m ready to die
Forgive me for being
So fuckin’ alive!

2) There is not so bright
There is no pain
Almost dead
No time to say
Even good bye
To the star I wanna see

Cannot speak
Cannot move
Can’t wiggle eyes
To see your look
Staring at me
All of my last night

Chorus. (x2)
Track Name: The Emperor
Intro:
Get away! Get out of the empire!
You swore an oath
To be a silent machine
A selfless ghost!
How dare you rise?
How dare you open your eyes?
Get out! Get off! And never come back!

I’m the Emperor!
You must obey.
This is my will, so go

Away! You disappointed me so much
I thought that we had
The same dreams, the same ideas!
I will build the world! With or without you…

Chorus:
Do you want to feel the power of my Empire?
You’ve always tried to change the rules
But this time I’ll not let you fight…
I'll crush you from the inside.

I’m the Emperor!
So take a bow.
You lost this battle, now

You know! That you would better stay a slave…
You are a traitor!
I’m the voice that makes the crowd hate you!
I’m the hand that feeds!
And who are you to try to fuck with me?!

Chorus:
Do you want to feel the power of my Empire?
You’ve always tried to change the rules
But this time I’ll not let you fight…
I'll crush you from the inside.

Bridge:
So, you won. I’m outlaw.
I am a thousand miles from home.
But I believe – there comes a day
When you should pay, when you will pray!
Now I give up. Now I’m alone.
But the defeat of one doesn’t stop the rebellion!

Hail to the Emperor!
Glory to the Empire!
Track Name: Beware Of The Dog
Chorus:
Don’t waste your time for hating
You can go way too far
Before you start this baiting
Know – I don’t care anymore!
While everybody's vying
For someone’s minds and souls
Know – for me you are
Just the most minor of all roles.

Verse 1:
I must stay blind
But anyway I see you.
Good to be deaf
But I can clearly hear.
You give – I take
Everything you brought to me.
But I would give it just a quickly glance.

Interlude:
If words are like bullets
You've got probably dummy ones
I am open; let me give you an advice…

Bridge 1:
Don’t be
So brash
Because
Extremes are dangerous
But
I know
That you
Don’t take it seriously and cross the line again.

Verse 2:
You think you are
An obstacle in my way.
In fact you are
A directing sign.
I walk away
From your words without meaning.
Goodbye! We have nothing to talk about.

Interlude.

Chorus.

Bridge 2:
One day I'll wake up with the thought inside my mouth
It jumps on my tongue. I feel and realize
That it swallows me before I can blink an eye
Then I’ll lose my mind and it just eats me alive.
Maybe my whole way is just stairway without steps?
Maybe I get nothing except some scars on the face?
Maybe I catch flies and do really nothing right?
Maybe my future is as black as anthracite?
But I – I don’t really want to live
In this – In this world without a dream
So I – I keep staying in my lane, I want you to know my name
And I tell you once again
That I – I don’t really want to live
In this – In this world without a dream
So I – I keep staying in my lane, I want you to know my name
And I tell you once again…

Chorus.
