This is our first track officially released in English.


That phone call at night
Pierced my disordered mind,
There came a sunless dawn,
Time to reap what we have sown.
One quiet April day
Someone played weird game,
Dangerous tests can’t be undone,
Fools we were to think we’ve won.

Our thoughts confused and plans obscure,
Feel so scared and insecure,
Got too little time to spare –
Nuclear poison in the air!

Then came another shock,
Blood ticks like a clock.
Blind stats will report
Who will live and who will not.
Facing this tragic hour
When the portent source of power
Just imposed its own will
We understood the threat was real.

Our thoughts made up and plans are clear,
Ought to go away from here,
It will spread on everywhere –
Nuclear poison in the air!

Dark chaos of running years.
Dark stream of memories
Pulls us in its gloomy depths,
So in full we’ve paid the debts.
Fatal harm we could restrain,
Dumb reproach through growing pain,
Buried pride, extinguished dream
Echo in a silent scream.

So what is there behind the curtain?
Every new day is uncertain,
Will it strike or will it spare?
Hazy future in the air…
