If you'll tell me your name in the comment of your order, I will unpack the disk, sign it, and will add my blessings and love :-) Because we know - buying a CD directly from me is an act of free will and strong support 'cause unfortunately shipping from Ukraine costs mostly like a second disc.

This song (Goddess) is about the journey of a dying warrior's soul to the Nav' (Spirit World, Kingdom of the Dead). The most superficial meaning is love (he realizes that Palace of the Gods is a human's fantasy, but the Great Goddess embodiment was (and is) with him as his wife). The deepest meaning is the memory of the ancient Sarmathian cult of the Great Mother. Horse-riding warriors (it was unbelievable in the ancient world of infantry warfare), lead by the Queen, later turned into the legends about Amazons and Centaurs. Ukrainian Cossacks were the last warriors of that transformed ancient cult - Pokrova (Christian "Mother of the God") was their patroness.
P.S. The phrase "there is no blood" is about well known "berserk" effect in the battle.
Music & lyrics by CHUR, edited by Ar (Heather Wasteland)
The time has come -
Here they stand.
They want our women,
They need our land.
But all my kin
Is behind my back.
They shall not pass -
They will be dead!
Now I feel
The smell of grass,
The weight of steel.
The time slowed down,
My hip is cut.
I see their fear -
There is no blood!
I wore my best shirt,
Embroidered by my wife.
These runes and patterns
Will tell the Gods of what blood I am!
CHORUS (translated from Ukrainian):
There is among grasses and flowers
A thousand men arranged a feast.
They're dancing with the swords,
They're splattering their red wine around!
The sky is blue! The steppe is wild!
Only strength gives freedom!
It's getting dark -
The day has gone.
I see them running
After the sun.
Please, pull the arrow
Out of my chest.
I am so tired,
I need to rest.
Will I see the Golden Gates
And Mighty Gods in silver mails?
Why my head is on your knees?
So good I’ve stopped to wheeze!
Look - grandparents are alive,
They're healthy and with happy smiles!
Calling and waving at me,
But I don't want to leave you!
I see no Gods, but the Goddess!
A galaxy is in your eyes!
You’ve been with me all the time.
And I know - you’ll be with me forever!
Ген серед трав та й квітів
Пирує тисяча мужів.
Із шаблями танцюють,
Вином червоним плескають!
Небо синє, дике поле -
Лише сила дає волю!
