Track Name: twice deceased
Twice deceased.
Living after the death of God.
We search for our shadow in the stream of illusions of the dreaming world.
We live in the world of total substitutions.
In the world of numbers and ghosts.
In the world where all words were erased and lost their meaning.


Дважды умершие.
Живущие после смерти Бога.
Мы ищем свою тень в потоке иллюзий спящего мира.
Мы живем в мире тотальных подмен.
В мире чисел и призраков.
В мире, где все слова стерлись и потеряли смысл.
Track Name: the epoch of outsiders
The epoch of outsiders.
The epoch of unbearable platitude of existence.
The kingdom of banality praising its emptiness.
The spirit has finally left our world.


Эпоха профанов.
Эпоха невыносимой пошлости существования.
Царство банального, воспевающее собственную пустоту.
Дух окончательно покинул наш мир.
Track Name: answer me
The time collapses.
There is no more time.
There is no space.
The agony of non-existence.
The spirit of barrenness lingers over the bereaved land, doomed to suffer the final loneliness.
The fear floods the soul.
Everything has limits.
The last mysteries were revealed.
The wind of the abyss scorches our face.
Who said this?
I am asking you – who?
Answer me.


Время сжимается.
Нет уже времени.
Нет пространства.
Агония небытия.
Дух бесплодия витает над осиротевшей землей, обреченный испытать последнее из одиночеств.
Страх заполняет душу.
Все предельно.
Открылись последние тайны.
Ветер из бездны опаляет наше лицо.
Кто это сказал?
Я спрашиваю вас - кто?
Ответьте мне.
