01. Aurora

Tallin, fallen
We're sailing to go home
War's coming, war's taking

Alone across the Baltic haze
Nobody loses hope
But we were feeling forgotten
Just breathing our death

Across the sea, you lead us
and ease the fears

Kutznetzov, the preacher
No light behind his back
The voice is trembling, no hiding
The end is moving fast
Tallin, fallen
We are leaning all behind
Remember those boatmen

The ghost-men chant, from Volga
Lost in the shadow

When pride is going to die
Inside an ancient rhyme
Ghosts from the Volga's tale

Lonely, the memories are lost
A pathway to nowhere
Stranded, the livid of my soul
Stranded, is claiming all my life

Fate, you take me down, into your dome
Straight into your great decay
Straight into your great mistake
From the boatmen, from the Volga's cry

Step by step and a step again
Fear is my great surrender
The ghost-man chant, from Volga, lost in the shadow
Ghosts from the Volga's tale
When pride is going to die inside an ancient rhyme

Ghosts of the boatmen.


02. Play Dead

Tonight I walk alone
Across the border zone
While the wind is breaking on my eyes

The summer loses the way
In a cold embrace I lay
I've been waiting for a sign to rise

But slowly fades, but slowly fades away
Loose the grip, falling far, far from you

So mother pray for me
A soldier cannot see
Don't forget those fairytales

Someday, when I'm back
My arms around your neck
And you cradle me under your veils

Your wings of stone
Surrounding me with your being

Play dead
Resounds the silence in my heart
My proud
Obey to "not a step behind"
Play dead
And when I'm near to disappear
My proud
Not for the leader but to you

Loose the grip
Falling far, Luga's nights

Play dead, my proud
Resounds the silence in mt heart
Play dead, my proud
Obey to "not a step behind"
Play dead, my proud
And when I'm near to disappear
Play dead, my proud
Not for the leader but to you

Shine to me, I die.


03. Pulkovo Meridian

In the night, from the hill
Creeping shadows, cold caress
On your face, hit the ground
And feel the blaze
One of all, young and scared
In a nameless tale to write
By my type, where do I begin

Thrust into you
The splinters of life
Fading away, lost in your mind
On Pulkovo Meridian
Bleeding on you
The tears of the crown
Fading away, lost in your fears
On Pulkovo Meridian

Now, call your name, on this page
But no answer from the hill
What's the time right to die...
And wrong to live
By your eyes, as you die
Why so shining Leningrad
Final breath, why do I begin

Thrust into you
The splinters of life
Fading away, lost in your mind
On Pulkovo Meridian
Bleeding on you
The tears of the crown
Fading away, lost in your fears
On Pulkovo Meridian

Higher, higher to hill, higher to God, higher to live...

Night is falling
Keep defending, keep on save the children of Motherland
Night is falling
Keep defending, keep on save the children of Motherland

In the night, in the cold
Creeping shadows from my back
On this type, hit the page
And feel the blaze
From my soul, to my hands
In a nameless tale to write


04. The Diarist

Instrumental


05. Snowdrifts

"The snow forgotten now begins to fall on my pain
How many children found the eternal rest
Oh, want you take them in your whitest dream
And watching on, on deliverance from agony
Now I'm fallin down with you"

Silence, into the misery of my December
I realize how much you can hurt me, silence
Anguish, between to live and die I remember
I feel the memory of a prayer, "Peter" goes on

"Now disappear, save me from my decay
I wish for time to catch my fall
And spread my wings forever"

Deadly, into the cradle of Russian poetry
How many poems of bloody writings
"Straight along this street, I can't find relief"

Mortal, into the garden of barbed wire
How many flowers will see summer?
"Straight along this street, looking for relief"
"Peter" goes on

Peter be the great
For your son, for me
Peter buried alive
In this world, oppressive time

I an feel your heart
I can feel you're near, now
How many tears fall in the "frozen"
Ride, over, once, over
Ride my knight of bronze

"Now disappear, save me from my decay
I wish for time to catch my fall
And spread my wings forever"

Ride my knight of bronze


06. Now Is Forever

Midnight, frozen is the lake, frozen is the path, and now the time is coming, I know I have to go away. Brave or fool, into this night I'll be aware!
Blinded by the snow, grinded by the flow, inside the cry of "Buran" and now begin to move, straight to the siege of my land. My hand is gonna trembling to turn its frozen key, breaking on the wheels, Lagoda lets me in, and now the time is coming, and now I have to go away.

The dear to survive is killing me on... Snow-blind.
The dear to survive is killing me on... But now is forever...

Lonely in this cab, suffering, my friend, the waiting of the children, they're crying by the starve, speed I will drive my heart on.
Behind they're going forward and never turning back, they follow my direction and never break the line, await my land, we're coming.
We crossed the oblivion gates for you, we cross the gates to you!

The dear to survive is killing me on... Snow-blind.
The dear to survive is killing me on... But now is forever...

Brave or fool, into this night I'll be aware!
Snow-blind, I'll reach out my hands to you, you, child, just a cloth I layed.
Snow-blind, I'll reach out my hands to you, remind your first son,
in my grave I will need that cloth for me.


08. Heart Of Leningrad

I'm walking back from hell
Buried my life again
Stand alone, the claws within
I forget my name

I'm walking back from hell
People cared away
Suffering is what I see
In the void I lay

Between myself and death
There is my Leningrad
Beats a sound
The speakers all around

Beat my heart, go on
Beat my heart, I know you're tired
Make me feel we're still alive
Beat my heart, go on, be my metronome
Beat my heart, I know you're tired
Make me feel we're still alive

I know I'd die
I know I'd die for Leningrad

Beside my words
There is a radio
Beats a sound,
The heart of Leningrad, for Leningrad

Beat my heart, go on, for Leningrad
Beat my heart, I know you're tired
Make me feel we're still alive
Beat my heart, go on, be my metronome
Beat my heart, I know you're tired
Make me feel we're still alive

900 days, 900 Nights
I know you're tired
I know.


09. Prospect

Instrumental


10. Motherland

Pulled down, I'm freezing on the ground now
Tears bodies all around, to die
After, another vicious slaughter
Of this unbounded war, my dying land
Faster, the life is falling deeper
Compared to waiving flag
Raise up! My injury hands are moving
Into the mud and snow, the price
While "Radio Leningrad" is spreading on the air
By "call the roll"
You know, I'm scared to see your face
But I can't close my eyes

If you're praying for me
Destroy what's inside
Afraid to die is not my final will
Wherever you are
Deleting my name
Afraid to die is not my final will

1941, build our lives in a bell
1944, 900 days, ten millions dead
Crystal from the bell, find the rest in our flesh
Splinters of my heart, don't repent
Can't find regrets!

About the nights, about the snow
Nothing still remains
No more cries, not today
For those I can remind
Dedicate a smile to the ones on my side
Splinters of my heart, don't repent
My mother's eyes...
My mother's cries...
My Motherland

If you're praying for me
Destroy what's inside
Afraid to die is not my final will
Wherever you are
Deleting my name
To hide myself by your arms, Motherland

I can feel the breath of Leningrad... My Motherland.


11. The Farewell Song

Last chapter of the siege
Slowly darkness falls
Rumours of steps that come to me

My end is near, just for a while I'll resist, and throwing out this sheet, the last ruins of time.
Behind my back he'll take the book from my hand, turn off the light's of my eyes and keep my memories, keep it closer, screaming...
My dumb resistance, my dumb resistance, die once again, 'cause I don't care, my dumb resistance, die once again, 'cause I don't care.
No more to say, Pulkovo stands as I lay, the wheels that cross the ice, the ghost boatmen of time. I wish I die, to sleep again with my child.

Oh, want you take me there, on white memory sleigh, laying closer, screaming...
My dumb resistance, my dumb resistance, die once again, 'cause I don't care,
My dumb resistance, my dumb resistance, die once again, 'cause I don't care...
When I'll can't see by blindfold, who will shoot to my lost heart
Blank cartridge strikes unware to let you hide...
Last chapter of the siege
Slowly darkness falls
Rumours of the steps... take me far.

NO ONE FORGET... NOTHING... FORGOTTEN...
