LIFE ON CREDIT - 2010

LIFE ON CREDIT

I live on credit
I'll die on credit
And they'll get a credit
To bury me

“A computer and a car
is your dream”
is what they're getting in your head,
programming your dreams

Chorus:
Life on credit
Life on credit
Life on credit
Life on credit

You're being pushed around again
State policy?
Or an insidious plan?
What kind of a life is this?

To live without credit
To succede in life
Very few are “chosen”
Crafty politicians

Chorus:
Life on credit
Life on credit
Life on credit
Life on credit

I live on credit
I live on credit
I live on credit
I'll die on credit


THIS TIME IT'S NOT A MIRAGE

Without order they rob us
Their own people and foreign
They'll take crumbs
Out of childrens lips

Will chaos, destruction
Always burden us?
We'll smash our heads
Into the iron walls

Chorus:
They steal from our flesh, let's hope they choke on it
Spite haunts our souls in the dark
They steal from our flesh, let's hope they choke on it
Spite haunts our souls in the dark

Without order they rob us
Their own people and foreign
They'll take crumbs
Our of childrens lips

Will chaos, destruction
Always burden us?
We'll smash our heads
Into the iron walls

Chorus:
Revolt rises in us again
This time true, and not a mirage
Countless fires in our souls
Bring fire to your eyes

 

SOMEWHERE, SOMETIME

We're the same
We've always been like this
We haven't changed
Even in moments
Of sadness
Sometimes
You lose faith
That you're someone
You find the strength
To continue
Forward

Chorus:
Somewhere, sometime

Sometimes
You don't know
Who you are
Where and why
If you believe
In something
Nothing
Can
Hold you back
To reach
Yourself
Yourself

Chorus:
Somewhere, sometime

Everytime
The pain
Is very strong
Our dream
Always
Beyond our reach
If you are
Strong
To take it
Somewhere
Sometime
You'll be happy

Chorus:
Somewhere, sometime

 

HOW FAR IS FAR?

Look back and see what your life's been like
Look back and see what you've done
Think about what you've been and what you will be
Think about what you've left in this world

Chorus:
How far is far?
How far is far?
How far is far?
How far is far?

Your journey in this world is alternating
Moments of joy and sadness
Can you be above the petty things
Can you be more humane and good

Chorus:
How far is far?
How far is far?
How far is far?
How far is far?

 

WORLD ORDER

You go home again
Tired and alone
With a blank stare
At the television screen

The city outside is bathing
In millions of lights
And you remain closed
Between four walls

The city outside is bathing
In millions of lights
And you remain closed
Between four walls

Chorus:
We live in a world
Of estrangement
We live in a world
Of estrangement
We live in a world
Of estrangement

You go and live
In a huge city
With dreams and hopes
Of a better life

You go and lose yourself
In the grey crowd
No aim or meaning
You live on the edge

You go and lose yourself
In the grey crowd
No aim or meaning
You live on the edge

Chorus:
We live in a world
Of urbanization
We live in a world
Of urbanization
We live in a world
Of urbanization

A huge store
Is being built again
Like a robot
You buy everything

Corporations
Are merging again
And slowly buying off
The whole world

Corporations
Are merging again
And slowly buying off
The whole world

Chorus:
We live in a world
Of globalization
We live in a world
Of globalization
We live in a world
Of globalization
We live in a world
Of globalization

Chorus:
We live in a world
Of estrangement
We live in a world
Of urbanization
We live in a world
Of estrangement
We live in a world
Of globalization

 

POLITICIANS AND CRIMINALS

All our lives
Debts and bills
Treating us
Like garbage

Wretched misers
From “Higher classes”
They sold
Their family for a penny

Chorus:
Politicians and criminals
Hand in hand
Robbed the whole country shamelessly
They lie to us and say “How did it get to this?”
And the truth is only one

Do I have to
Stand this
Am I not
A man with rights ?

Can I
Change
My
Destiny

Politicians and criminals
Hand in hand
They robbed greedily, they're still robbing now
They lie to us and say “How did it get to this?”
And the truth is only one

Politicians and criminals
Hand in hand
They robbed greedily, they're still robbing now
They lie to us and say “How did it get to this?”
And the truth is only one

All our lives
Debts and bills
Treating us
Like garbage

Wretched misers
From “Higher classes”
They sold
Their family for a penny

Politicians and criminals
Hand in hand
Represent our country before the world
They lie shamelessly and sleep “well” at night
They're used to stealing
All their lives

Politicians and criminals
Hand in hand
Represent our country before the world
They lie shamelessly and sleep “well” at night
They're used to stealing
All their lives

Politicians and criminals
Hand in hand
Brought our country to the edge
They lie to us and say “How did it get to this?”
And the truth is only one

Politicians and criminals
Hand in hand
They robbed greedily, they're still robbing now
They lie to us and say “How did it get to this?”
And the truth is only one

 

THE END?

Like a moment time flies
Like a moment days melt
My dreams have flown away
And now all I feel is cold

CHORUS:
I go there and it's the end?
I go there and it's the end?
I go there and it's the end?
I go there and it's the end?
I go there and it's the end?
I go there and it's the end?
I go there and it's the end?
I go there and it's the end?
I go there and it's the end?
I go there and it's the end?

I look through the window again
I look for a flash of light
But outside there's only darkness
Only darkness and gloom

CHORUS:
I go there and it's the end?
I go there and it's the end?
I go there and it's the end?
I go there and it's the end?
I go there and it's the end?
I go there and it's the end?
I go there and it's the end?
I go there and it's the end?
I go there and it's the end?
I go there and it's the end?

I think of what it will be like there
There, on the other side
Light or darkness
Is there life after death?

CHORUS:
I go there and it's the end?
I go there and it's the end?
I go there and it's the end?
I go there and it's the end?
I go there and it's the end?
I go there and it's the end?
I go there and it's the end?
I go there and it's the end?
I go there and it's the end?
I go there and it's the end?
I go there and it's the end?
I go there and it's the end?
I go there and it's the end?
I go there and it's the end?
I go there and it's the end?
I go there and it's the end?
I go there and it's the end?
I go there and it's the end?
I go there and it's the end?
I go there and it's the end?

 

BELIEVE IN YOURSELF

How much should I want?
How much should I give?
What should I think?
How much will I sell myself for?

Everyone wants something again
What are you willing to give?
The price of good is a lot
And doing evil is easy

Chorus:
Believe in yourself
Believe in yourself

What have I given to this world?
I want to give more
When we're all powerful
Nothing can stop us

Chorus:
Believe in yourself
Believe in yourself

Lies are rushing in from everywhere
You can't see your way ahead
You don't know what to think
But believe strongly – in yourself

Chorus:
Believe in yourself
Believe in yourself

 

REFLECTION

It's always better
When I
Define my own destiny
It's always better
When I know
What to do with my life

Be true
To yourself
Even when you have no choice
Don't become a slave
Of envy
Don't be pathetic, have dignity

Your life is very short
You can always run
Your life is very short
You can always run

Chorus:
Do with your life
As you please
Be creative and help
Others

It's always better
When I
Define my own destiny
It's always better
When I know
What to do with my life

Your life is very short
You can always run
Your life is very short
You can always run

Chorus:
Do with your life
As you please
Be creative and help
Others

DON'T THINK THAT ANYONE THINKS ABOUT YOU

Don't think that anyone thinks about you
Don't consider that anyone considers you
Don't say you said anything
Don't become like them, about money

Don't look without seeing
Don't trust made up lies
Don't become a slave of people's reproaches
Don't be anyone else, be yourself

Don't stop if anyone else tells you to stop
Don't run away from a problem, solve it
Don't pass off someone in distress
Don't neglect people

Don't go by anyone else's rules
Created to incite fear in the world
Don't follow anyone, but think
It is You, who decides how to go on

Bridge:

Think about the important things
That make the world better
Don't attack – think
Decide if it's worth it

Chorus:

Don't think that anyone thinks about you
Don't think that anyone thinks about you
Don't think that anyone thinks about you
Don't think that anyone thinks about you

Don't think that anyone thinks about you
Don't consider that anyone considers you
Don't say you said anything
Don't become like them, about money

Don't look without seeing
Don't trust made up lies
Don't become a slave of people's reproaches
Don't be anyone else, be yourself

Bridge:

Think about the important things
That make the world better
Don't attack – think
Decide if it's worth it

Chorus:

Don't think that anyone thinks about you
Don't think that anyone thinks about you
Don't think that anyone thinks about you
Don't think that anyone thinks about you

 

PAVLOV'S DOG

Pavlov's dog
A conditioned reflex
Zoopsychology
An experiment

Pavlov's dog
Goes around the world
Salivates
Without food

Chorus:

Pavlov's dog
Is what we are today
Participants
In an experiment

Programmed consciousness
Useless product
Primitive thinking
Laboratory waste

Trained animals
Without a thinking process
A behaviour model
Lacking progress

Chorus:

Pavlov's dog
Is what we are today
Participants
In an experiment

 


 

KICKS FOR ALL JESTERS - 2007

1. Two Million Days

If I had two million days
Would life change?
Would fantasies die?
Memories would change

If I had two million days
I’d live through thousands of fates
Would I have values and morale?
Or would I be a pathetic, pitiful creature?

Chorus:
Two million days
Two million days
Two million days
Two million days

If I had power over this world
Would I want to be rich?
Would I be good with people?
Or would I be in a nightmare?

If I had power over this world
Would I be blind for injustice?
If I had two million days
Would life change?

 

2. Choice

Polluted air covers the day
I can’t breathe
What would happen if stopped,
If I stopped going up?

I don’t want to not see
And stupidity evolving
I know, I stand here and look
And I can see ahead

Chorus:
The brain shouldn’t stop
Looking for the clear things
It shouldn’t hide
The humanity of each of us

 

3. Burning Chill

We live our lives in ignorance
Brain-washed by TV and magazines
And this human knowledge
Turns into our punishment

Every day we follow millions of rules
In someone’s game
Lined-up chess pieces
Full of fear all our lives

Chorus:
No, I won’t stay
In this world
That burns me
With its chill

 

4. Mayor cretin

Kiril Yordanov
An important person??? No
A villager in power?
Occupation – thief?

A dirty slave of TIM?
A low, greasy snob?
Pathetic, dirty vermin?
The city’s sunk in stench

Chorus:
Kiril Yordanov – mayor cretin?
A servant of the Communist Party – the people’s problem
Kiril Yordanov – mayor cretin?
A servant of the Communist Party – the people’s problem

Construction companies
Destroy streets
Bribes are taken
Hotels are built

Young people flee
From our disgusting city
The Mayor’s happy,
He turned the city into Hell

Chorus:
Kiril Yordanov – mayor cretin?
A servant of the Communist Party – the people’s problem
Kiril Yordanov – mayor cretin?
A servant of the Communist Party – the people’s problem

 

5. We've Been Robed

We’ve been robbed

For years now
Misery and poverty
Unemployment
Demographic downfall

Corrupted politicians
Corrupted clerks
Bureaucracy

We’ve been robbed
We’ve been robbed
We’ve been robbed
We’ve been robbed

Pathetic income
Polluted nature
Credit millionaires
Emigration
Friendly circles
Mafia
Economic degradation
A sick nation

We’ve been robbed
We’ve been robbed
We’ve been robbed
We’ve been robbed

“Privatization”
Diplomatic immunity
State blackmail
Backstage games
Social isolation
Drugs
Prostitution
Bulgaria

We’ve been robbed
We’ve been robbed
We’ve been robbed
We’ve been robbed

 

6. Walnut-Tree Rod

What is left in our suffering country?
Old people’s homes and shelters for children
Stuffed with oppressed worn-out faces
Used to that pathetic, ugly misery

An old woman digging in garbage can
Bitterly crying for her lost grandson,
Who left to wash dishes abroad
Pushed away by family, friends, country

Chorus:
I can’t stand it anymore
I’m going crazy
I don’t want to live in misery
I can’t stand it anymore
I don’t want to live in misery

Who sold our ruined country?
I’m looking for answers, for how much and when?
There are no answers, no one’s responsible
The law has been fixed to be convenient

The people responsible for this,
The ones who made millions live in poverty
Will have to pay the bill in the end
With a walnut-tree dipped in shit

Chorus:
I can’t stand it anymore
I’m going crazy
I don’t want to live in misery
I can’t stand it anymore
I don’t want to live in misery

Chorus:
I can’t stand it anymore
I’m going crazy
I don’t want to live in misery
I can’t stand it anymore
I don’t want to live in misery

Walnut-tree rod for them
Walnut-tree rod for them
Walnut-tree rod for them
Walnut- tree rod for them

 

7. A Fairy Tale

How do our politicians look today?
A pack of monkeys without any progress
A pack of monkeys with no conscience or morality
With accumulating riches as their main goal

How do the people in Bulgaria live today?
All smeared with soot and grease
Deeply in debt for utilities
Crushed and listless, bowing their heads

Chorus:
How much longer
Will we put up with this?
Enough, enough
With this wretched game

Once upon a time, the communists lived here
They had pure ideals
But how things changed,
They started stealing greedily from the treasury

Then they changed their name to Blue Democrats,
They created a dirty mafia army,
They shamelessly blackmailed the poor
And privatized public property

Chorus:
How much longer
Will we put up with this?
Enough, enough
With this wretched game

And here comes the tale’s end
It ends with the appearance of the “KING”
He arrived impudently, the cretin from Madrid
With lies and deceit he turned into a hit
Even to the children it’s already clear
Why the pitiful old man appeared
He came home to serve other people’s interests
And to repossess some of his properties

Chorus:
How much longer
Will we put up with this?
Enough, enough
With this wretched game

 

8. Friends Of Europe

I’m asking myself a question now
Why does Europe need us?
I feel we’ll make good friends,
So long as we’re the puppets

I few things need to be done
To please Europe
First, we’ll set up military bases here
Or the friendship will be postponed

They want us to shut down four reactors
Otherwise we’ll be done with our membership
We will all work for Europe for free
To be good friends with them

How they love us, they want us with them
Working together for a peaceful world
They’ll be in banks, at good posts
We’ll be sewing clothes for them for free

Chorus:
We’re entering Europe
Sing from the heart
We’ll be Europeans
Clap your hands
We’ll settle for the price later
The important thing is I’m a member of the European Union

What is the conclusion from the whole story?
Bulgaria can’t turn into Earthsea
No matter how gently they pet our heads
We’ll be Europe’s servants

Chorus:
We’re entering Europe
Sing from the heart
We’ll be Europeans
Clap your hands
We’ll settle for the price later
The important thing is I’m a member of the European Union

 

9. Real End

A real world
In an impossible race
A sinking world
With no turning back

A real end
In an imposible world
A real end
In an imposible world
A real end
In an imposible world
A real end
In an imposible world

 

10. Kicks For All Jesters

Libya, Iraq – The war continues
Endless violence – The world’s coming to an end
An atomic plant – Is what the world is today
We’re seconds away – From atomic catastrophe
Behind the masks of terrorists – Impure thoughts are hidden
America plans again – Who will be colonized
It involves everyone in this dirty game – Whether by force or not
There are no longer any rules – In the game of the world

Chorus:
Kicks for all jesters
Kicks for all jesters
Kicks for all jesters
Kicks for all jesters

Religion has always – Served interests
It vitiates everything – It vitiates everyone
God had hardly – Had this in mind
Good people today – To be under the threat of extinction

The end is near – It gets ever so sinister
Money in its full power – Rules the world today
Insecurity and fear – Is what today’s children live in
Evil is everywhere - Soaked up in soul and flesh

Chorus:
Kicks for all jesters
Kicks for all jesters
Kicks for all jesters
Kicks for all jesters

 

11. Fate

He was only sixteen
Life had crushed him
He was alone, without a home, without anyone
He didn’t even have any friends

Before he knew it
He was sinking
Slowly
Helplessly

Chorus:
May be
Some day
Someone else
In another world
Will find him
Then his fate will change

He grew up lonely
The streets were his home
He cried in his sleep at night
With dreams of a better life

Before he knew it
He was sinking
Slowly
Helplessly

Chorus:
May be
Some day
Someone else
In another world
Will find him
Then his fate will change

They found him lay
Fallen, abandoned
Life had left him
The drug had taken it slowly

Before he knew it
He was sinking
Slowly
Helplessly

Chorus:
May be
Some day
Someone else
In another world
Will find him
Then his fate will change

 

12. Vampires

Chaos again
Pitch dark
Black graves
They dig out again
They crawl outside
Thirsty for blood
Greedy vampires
Of flesh and blood

Their ugly laughter
Echoes far away
They feast greedily
Money they count
Ugly vampires
Without a conscience, evil
They steal from everyone
Money they count

They won’t stop
They won’t stop

Chorus:
They won’t stop
They can’t sleep
They have no soul
They have no hearts

They’ve sold
Their souls
They’ll rot in hell
For a handful of pennies
Impertinent vampires
In expensive clothes
The world is theirs
They command all

Their ugly laughter
Echoes far away
They feast greedily
Money they count
Ugly vampires
Without a conscience, evil
They steal from everyone
Money they count

They won’t stop
They won’t stop

Chorus:
They won’t stop
They can’t sleep
They have no soul
They have no hearts

Chaos again
Pitch dark
Black graves
They dig out again
They crawl outside
Thirsty for blood
Greedy vampires
Of flesh and blood

 

13. Why?

Without a tiniest chance in my life
Without the tiniest chance of being a hero
My fate has decided so
No spirit, no glory, no money

Chorus:
Forsaken at the world’s end
In a country called Bulgaria
Life has flown away from there
A curse has befallen it

Do I have to withstand?
How to change life?
How to deal with everything?
Because the end is near

Chorus:
Forsaken at the world’s end
In a country called Bulgaria
Life has flown away from there
A curse has befallen it
