thornsmoat. a two-chapter antiutopia about a tough fate of a black fox.a hunter and a couple of dogs are chasing the prey to a certain death. the burrow is clouded with smoke. everyone has burnt alive. he is the last of the free; his death is coming close. the only thing left is to run. towards his fate - or away from it.
chewing his paws off trying to escape. stuck in traps for days, animals die slowly and sorely, long before the hunter comes. you need 18 foxes to make a furcoat.

about an album in short:
the message isn’t straightforward. anti-utopias are always multi-faceted. our work is based on a story about a fox and human cruelty, but if you dig deeper, you’ll uncover hidden parallels about witchhunts; people of faith are always offended by the existence of those who don’t share their ideas of the bible. they build the cult of the righteous; the hierarchy of power leads to punishment of those who oppose the views of the majority. as a rule, people give themselves the right to decide who lives and who doesn’t. the world isn’t just black and white, even separating situations by shade is subjective; it is also true when people judge, harm or kill on the grounds of difference. primarily, the band leans not towards the cult of ideas, but the cult of sense and frugality towards everyone and everything. we don’t appreciate cruelty towards animals and everyone surrounding us. associations and symbols of all that can be found in our lyrics and art.

Track Name: tetiva (chapter I)
(eng)
cover up your trail
know
its looking for you again
take your shadow with you
the sly fox is worried
the human is too close
there’s no time to linger
run without turning back
along the hidden path
the burrow is unsafe
the fox feels death coming
through the bulrush
can’t catch
two pairs of eyes
chasing
fur and dirt mixed
light visible through the roots
moss will hide
the hounds have picked up the trail
keeping close to the roots
deep under the ground (mother)
is digging a secret passage
outsmart
lead the black dogs into a dead end
time to be strong
pain
pain, go away
lose
forest, come apart
shower our field
with a bloody rain
your shadow (walks)
with a light step of redemption
danger is close
stray flame has engulfed
the hill can’t save
smoke, black smoke

(rus)
заметай следы
знай
ищет тебя вновь
забирай с собой тень
взволнован хитрый лис
слишком близок человек

медлить нельзя
скрытой тропой
бежать без оглядки

небезопасно в норе
хвостатый чует смерть

через камыш
не способен догнать
две пары глаз
сели на хвост

шерсть грязь смешались
сквозь корни виден свет
мох спрячет
ищейки взяли след

прижимаясь к корням
глубоко под землёй
(мать) роет тайный ход

перехетри
заведи в тупик черных псов
время быть сильным

боль
отступи боль
теряй
расступись лес

кровавым дождем
окропи наше поле
лёгкой поступью расплаты
(шагает) твоя тень

опасность рядом
шальное пламя охватило холм
и не спасти

дым черный дым
Track Name: kapkan (chapter II)
(eng)
decayed those who fell
in the depths of darkness
the arrows have taken
taken from the pack of the free
through creeks and ravines
cold / hunger / emptiness
the day isn’t easy
thumbing through the book of life
wither
waiting for the ashes in the fog
rustling
has frozen in a prairie dream
boundless is the grief
since the hymn in the name of love
is sad
heart trembles
it feels that death is close
ice teeth have clenched
(with the darkness)
the three-legged beast
is crawling home
the three-legged beast
prevent
a star shining
hundreds of miles away
may will sharpen the fangs of a flame
scoop
the void of eye sockets
the howl of hope
is tearing apart
your wounds, thorns
the crucifixion of panic
a thorn bush is covering your wounds
instead of graves
to the creek
keeping its eyes open
every stone
bleeding
marks
a grubby sign
with purple
hurts to breathe
cold in the chest
when calling for the fallen
the righteous
everyone reaps what they sow
jerome
will help
to bring the hymn of sadness
and let him
come to you in a nightmare

(rus)
истлели те кто пал
в глубинах темноты
пусть стрелы забрали
из стаи вольных забрали
сквозь овраги и ручьи
холод / голод / пустота

нелёгок день
книгу жизни листая
отцветай

в тумане пепла ждать,
степными снами застыли
шорохи
безбрежно горе
ведь печален гимн
во имя любви

трепещет сердце
чует близок смерти час
сомкнулись ледяные зубья
(тьмой)

трехлапый зверь
ползет домой

трехлапый зверь

предотврати
зарево звезды
за сотни миль
май оскалит пламя
зачерпни
бездну глазниц
разрывает
надежды вой

раны твои шипы
распятие паник
терновый куст вместо могил
устилает раны твои

к ручью
не сымыкая глаз
каждый камень
кровоточа
отмечает
багровым
червивый знак

дышать больно
холодно в груди
когда взывая падших
праведных
ведь каждый сеет что пожнет

иероним

поможет
донести печали гимн
и пусть
приснится страшным сном
