Track Name: Moscow Hearts (Putin Mix)
Red Blue Red Blue
Who am I going to

East West East West
Where can you find the best

Just look in my watery eyes, and see the lie
In darkness and sorrow we love and kiss goodbye

Left Right Left Right
My life is out of sight

Do it and do it and do it, forget our lives
This feeling that’s so close to death is what survives

East West East West
Which one will stand the test

Now please me and squeeze me and leave me
Now lump me and pump me and dump me
Track Name: The Capture
Poem by Paul Laurence Dunbar.
Track Name: The Assassination V2
The world is changing and still nothing ever changes.
No one learns from history.
And no one cares what happens if there’s no tv camera showing it.

They don’t know about camps where torture is daily routine.
They don’t know about rooms where inmates are tested for suffocating gas.
They don’t know about guards that hang prisoners on bars just for fun.
They don’t know about meals of 50 grams of corn a day.
They don’t know about inmates forced to swallow mucus from guards.
Of babies buried alive or used for chemical experiments.
It still happens today.

Instead multinationals have launched joint ventures.
One day we will use smartphones produced by these inmates.
And we’ll be happy because they will be cheaper than ever.

And we’ll continue to refuse people who come from hell.
We will continue to ignore Camp 22.
It feels safe to be blind.

Maybe it's time we experience ourselves what happens to others.

It's time for the assassination of greed and self indulgence.
It's time to live with people that care.
It's time to share.
It's time to listen to sounds that matter.
