If You Believe in God

LYRICS
Feel the onslaught coming
Enter the terror reign
See the forces are bombing
The human error rain
If you believe in God
It’s time to pray for peace
If you’re an atheist
Some empathy at least?

Evils not relenting
Reign of terror remains
See all the rules bending
Beyond moral restrains
If you believe in God
It’s time to pray for peace
If you’re an atheist
Some empathy at least?

The battlelines redrawing
Extend the terror range
At our hearts it’s gnawing
Do you find guilt strange?
If you believe in God
It’s time to pray for peace
If you’re an atheist
Some empathy at least?
Amen
A Men
All men

Dear Vladimir (Uvazhayemyy Vladimir)

Dear Vladimir,
Who is the man that will ruin the day
Vladimir
Who is the man that will ruin our way
Vladimir
Smear Vladimir out of here

The man is nuts

Who is the man that will ruin the day
Vladimir
Who is the man that will ruin our way
Vladimir
Smear Vladimir out of here
Cold blooded killer

Pants on fire

Worms for filler
Time to retire

Who is the man that will ruin the day

Who is the man that will ruin our way
Vladimir
Smear Vladimir out of here
Lets here you sing it!
Who is the man that will ruin the day
Vladimir
Who is the man that will ruin our way

Expect a pass?
Don't let the door hit you in the....

Drums of War

LYRICS
The drums of war
Are growing louder
Chimpanzees
Thump their chests louder
The offspring ring
Their bells and sing
“No more war!”
The offspring ring
Their bells and sing

Wars can cease
Ring in peace
May wars cease
Bring in peace

The guns of war
Are growing louder
Enemies
Keep dry powder
The offspring ring
Their bells and sing
“No more war!”
The offspring ring
Their bells and sing
“War no more!”
Wars can cease
Ring in peace
May wars cease
Bring in peace

The pain of war
Is crying louder
Chimpanzees
Could not be prouder
The offspring ring
Their bells and sing
“No more war!”
The offspring ring
Their bells and sing
“War no more!”
Wars can cease
Ring in peace
May wars cease
Bring in peace

What’s the answer
So perplexing
Witches’ hexing

Oh oh you know

There is only one kind of man
I know
Mankind
What kind of would kill
Mankind?

You have what you’ve been seekin’
God spoke:
Ya’ll woke?
Of my complaints are these:
Unto others, you spread disease
Spewing crap upon your habitat
And if that,
Were not enough…
Already rough
Vladimir did appear

Call 911

Matthew 24:4-8
Jesus said, "Watch out for doomsday deceivers. Many leaders are going to show up with forged identities, claiming, 'I am Christ, the Messiah.' They will deceive a lot of people. When reports come in of wars and rumored wars, keep your head and don't panic. This is routine history; this is no sign of the end. Nation will fight nation and ruler fight ruler, over and over. Famines and earthquakes will occur in various places. This is nothing compared to what is coming."

No humane in human

Moving Toward Uncertainty

A song about a resident of Mariupol, a key Ukrainian port, that is under siege and out of water. “Ukraine has accused Russia of refusing to allow people out of Mariupol, where a blockade has left hundreds of thousands trapped. Mariupol has been under siege and bombardment for more than two weeks and is encircled by Russian troops. The situation in the strategic port city was “desperate”, where civilians have been desperately trying to flee, but were without water or heating, and running out of food, a top Doctors Without Borders (Medecins Sans Frontieres, or MSF) executive said on Friday.”

Pisnya pro meshkantsya Mariupolya, klyuchovoho ukrayinsʹkoho portu, yakyy perebuvaye v oblozi ta vyvedenyy iz vody. «Ukrayina zvynuvatyla Rosiyu v tomu, shcho vona vidmovlyayetʹsya propuskaty lyudey z Mariupolya, de cherez blokadu sotni tysyach zalyshylysya v pasttsi.

Piano Sorrow

Playing piano in a bombed out appartment in Ukraine.

A song about a video shared by a musician playing her piano for the last time in Ukraine:
“Playing for the last time”
She plays the piano for the last time before leaving the bombed house in Kiev.

Pisnya pro video, yakym vostannye v Ukrayini podilylasya muzykant, yakyy hraye na pianino:

Through the broken window
The last notes on my piano
The sorrow I’ve come to know
A tragedy, not minor
In minor

A tragedy for sure
Through the shattered windowpane
Pain!

On my piano
Before I go
To let you know
My sorrow

Your Mama’s Calling

A Ukrainian woman was demonstrating on the streets of her Russian occupied town when Russian soldiers fired shots overhead to disperse the protesters. In return, the Ukrainian mother yells and swears at a Russian soldier for invading and bombing her city telling the young man to go home to his mother.

Poklykannya tvoyeyi mamy
LYRICS
Gunshots overhead
Don’t you know we’re wishing you dead
See our feet out on the street
Retreat or face defeat
Don’t you think you should be going
Your mama needs you at home
It’s time you should be going
Don’t leave mama alone
… don’t leave her all alone

Gunshots overhead
You already bombed my bed
Can’t keep our feet from the street
You’ve fallen for deceit
Don’t you think you should be going
Your mama needs you at home
It’s time you should be going
Don’t leave mama alone
… don’t leave her all alone

Don’t you think you should be going
Your mama needs you at home
It’s time you should be going
Don’t leave mama alone
… don’t leave her all alone

All night and all of the day
Constantly fanatical way
He just won’t quit
If I could get just a little bit

Just a little bit of a respite
All night and into the light
A little bit of a respite

Disbelief

This is a song about an American that can not believe his Russian friend has been fooled by Putin’s propaganda.

LYRICS
It’s hard to believe
I’m in disbelief
I can’t believe
What you conceive
You evade the term “invade”
Wage war on the word “war”
And, woe…oooooo…
There’s so much more

Masquerade the term “invade”
Without fail “war” sends you to jail
And, woe…oooooo…
There’s so much more
It’s hard to believe
I’m in disbelief
I can’t believe
What you conceive

Aversion to saying “invasion”
Engage enrage calling it “war”
And, woe…oooooo…
There’s so much more:
War on orphans and widows
War on schools and hospitals
War on maternity wards
War on Wards
(Absurd)

It’s hard to believe
I’m in disbelief
I can’t believe
What you conceive

No Going Back

This is a song about a Russian that does not realize everything Putin says about Ukraine is actually true of himself. Not only has Russia destroyed the homes of Ukrainians, but Russia has also destroyed itself.

By attacking Ukraine, Russia will destroy everything it has achieved over the past 25 years – address by President Volodymyr Zelenskyy
This will be the price of war against Ukraine for Russia. It will be a fall for them, a painful fall. And they will feel it even in spite of the “opium for the people” from television propagandists. Unjust and aggressive war always has a high price for the aggressor.

It is time to restore territorial integrity and justice for Ukraine. Otherwise, Russia’s losses will be so huge that several generations will not be enough to rebound.

LYRICS
A pile of lies
Stacked up to the sky
Lack of legit
Calls the kettle black
Now, is there no going back?
Destroyed home
Destined to roam
The accuser accused
Causer of victims (It’s him! It’s him!)
Can never go home
Destined to roam

Complete deceit
An absolute lie
“No, not I”
Calls the kettle black
Now, is there no going back?
Destroyed home
Destined to roam
The accuser accused
Causer of victims (It’s him! It’s him!)
Can never go home
Destined to roam
Destroyed his own home

Refugee Party

This is a song in support of the Ukrainian refugees. As of March 20, 2022, 10 million Ukrainians have had to flee for their life. That is one-fourth of the nation’s population. Russia has bombed and shelled entire cities killing multitudes of civilians. Mariupol’s mayor Vadym Boychenko compared the actions of Russian forces to the Nazis capturing and deporting civilians during the Second World War. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has said the siege of Mariupol – where hundreds of thousands of people are trapped and facing relentless bombardment – is “a terror that will be remembered for centuries to come”.

So, the entire world is throwing a party for you, Ukrainian refugees. We welcome you!

Partiya bizhentsiv
LYRICS
Look this way

Oh so quickly

Free for all
Free-for-all

Walk this way
There’s a refugee

There’s a long road ahead
And nowhere to go
Understanding what’s said

There’s a long road ahead
And nowhere to go
Understanding what’s said
I don’t know
An attack on the fact
Creates friction with fiction
Propaganda bonanza
Giving birth to the gore of war

There’s a long road ahead
And nowhere to go
Understanding what’s said

Giving birth to the gore of war

Climbing in with the dead

Keeps coming after me
No, it’s not in my head
It’s called the living dead
And, dread

Not a Moment Too Soon

LYRICS
Will you ever get out of there?
Once the world starts to care
Will you ever get out of there?
Once the world becomes aware
And believe me…
It’ won’t be a moment too soon
Seeing how the hammer does loom

Will we ever get out of here?
Once the world starts to hear
Will we ever get out of here?
Soon it all becomes clear
Once the world becomes aware
And believe me…
It’ won’t be a moment too soon
Seeing how the hammer does loom
No, not a moment too soon
— The loon beneath the full moon
