All these people were still living by faith when they died.
They did not recieve the things promised; they only saw them
and welcomed them from a distance. And they admitted
that they were aliens and strangers on earth.


(Lyrics by D.Basik & Al.Vertel)

Hailed… Failed… Jailed… Nailed…

So, going down again with all your life in vein,
But «blessed are you who mourn» — does not it ease your pain?
You tell me who's to blame? Who's that one to shame?
Found the one in mirror? Oh, it looks so lame!
Who told you «Sacrifice!»? (I think it sounds like good advice)
So tell me where are those the virtuous? Hiding from your eyes!
No one to suffer with? But know that suffering is bliss!
You are the «righteous» tag on punching bag — I love the way it is!

And when they beat — you deserve it,
(The) way they treat — you should love it,
(And) when they twit — you should know it's right.
They seal you from the tempting wishes,
Heal you from the thoughts so vicious,
Peel you till you're clean to guide to Light —
Messiah be your Guide!

Chorus:
And you hate what you've got and you love what you've lost,
And you hope you do right but too high is the cost.
And you pray for this cup to be taken from you,
But it's yours — drink it up, ain't you longing to?
Messiah died for you!

But wasn't it me who taught you wisdom they're sweetly calling «sin»?
I did not promise Heaven's Kingdom but gave you everything…

The One they blame for the wrongs they do,
I am the Evil that always does Good!

Just like a snake I crept in your bed, made you feel the flame you'd never had.
I made you dare the things you never would, I made you feel beloved and understood.
I made you wish: you wished — you got. Now, will you tell me that you loved me not?
I let you be, I made you see — so, tell me who's Messiah if not Me?

And when they beat — you deserve it,
(The) way they treat — you should love it,
(And) when they twit — you should know it's right.
They seal you from the tempting wishes,
Heal you from the thoughts so vicious,
Peel you till you're clean to guide to Light —
Messiah be your Guide!

CHORUS.

One and two, two and three: telling «A» you tell me «B»,
Three and four, four and five: what you wish the most in life?
Six and seven, seven — eight: hurry up, don't make me wait,
Eight and nine, nine — ten: if answer's wrong — we'll start again!

Father, why me? Why has it to be? Did You know? Did You see? Sacrifice me!
Why am I the one? Chosen — Your own Son. Why shall it be done? Crucify me, Father!
Sins my blood atoned… Hearts my love unstoned…
Faith (I brought) they owed… Sanctify me!
Father, why me? Why has it to be? You did know! You did you see!
Why have You forsaken me?!

Dancing on the Ledge

(Lyrics by Dm. Basik & Alena Gornyh)

If you see me dead blind, if you find me insane,
Wildly dancing on ledge of the house in flame.
Will you stay next to me when there's no one around?
Will you dance by my side when the ledge crashes down?

Why have we ever been there? Lent to each other's embrace,
Just helpless puppets we've been dragged from quite different plays.
When she looked deep — he looked high: them someone tried to unite.
Two blind birds in the sky told they would see the sun light.

So close and so strange, so far and so dear,
Too false to be true, so wrong to be real.
Why did we say? Why did we pray each other
Fly, fly Bonny!
Together apart, with the love we would treat,
Or was it the love that deserved to be bred?
To hear it sound, hear it resound to us
Die, die Bonny!

CHORUS:
Dancing on the ledge
Like dancing on the ledge

Did not we know from the start? Who did we try to deceive?
Or did we cherish that hope? Say, did we really believe?
Say we would need it so much just having nothing to choose…
…It was so easy to dream when we had nothing to lose.
Too false to be true while being so real,
Too far and so close while feeling so weird,
Why did we say? Why did we pray each other
Fly, fly, Bonny!
But losing it all, will we ever regret?
Losing that «something» we never had.
Can hear it sound, hear it resound to us
Die, die Bonny!

CHORUS.

Say, will you be there when the ledge crashes down?
Dancing with me till we fall to the ground?
Will I hear you say, hear you pray me
Fly, fly Bonny!
Never so close to the last time we part,
Never so true being wrong from the start.
Let's hear it sound, hear it resound to us
Die, die Bonny!

CHORUS.

Divine Contract

(Lyrics by Dmitry Basik)

Stand by me shining bright. Lead me out to the light.
From the dark I am in. From my vice and my sin.

Hallelujah.
Arrogant and so naive, in myself I did believe
Thought I could decide my fate
And find the key to the heaven's gate
But now I'm saved, you guide my way
All I need is to kneel and pray
I count on you, divine friend,
Take me to the promised land!
You are light in dead of night, shelter in the storm
Helpful hand and super friend, mighty, almighty!

CHORUS:
You can't, you don't and you may not
You must, you will, you should, you ought
I am confused, I must confess
But anyway I'll do my best.
Hej-hough! Hough-hej! Hosanna hej-hough! Hej-hough! Hough-hej! Sanna hej!

But if I sin, what is your price? I'm all ears for your advice
Is it money that I pay?
Or names of saints that I pray?
So let's us ink divine deal
And make my own salvation real
And when we meet in heaven's court
I hope you will offend me not!

You are light, you're light, shelter in the storm
Helpful hand, my friend, mighty, almighty!

CHORUS.

Buddha or Krishna, Mohammed or Christ —
Equally mighty, equally wise,
Blessing or curse, better or worse —
Choose or refuse them all.
It is the roulette of your life and you put the stakes:
It is black, it is red, and it gives and it takes
And the roulette rolls and the iron ball
Will tell you if you rise or fall…

You are light in dead of night, shelter in the storm
Helpful hand and super friend, mighty, almighty!
You are light in dead of night, shelter in the storm
Helpful hand and super friend, mighty, almighty!
