AFGHAN RAPSODY (Dari language below) Hey what a heavy phase Everything is black and white, nothing is colored Again, me and a lifeless body Re-painted plaster wall Wow, I criticized him for not laughing With my eyes I locked this fire in the lighter A dark room with the smell of cart smoke How lucky you are with an empty pocket Do not say we are the same color I spent a lifetime laughing in the room I'm dead, son of a bitch I always hit the rock to the foot of the road If I make people lawful Yeah Al that sounds pretty crap to me, Looks like it ain‘t for me either From myself From everyone from the court table From thinking about tomorrows that are on my brain Hey, don‘t you tell me not to worry, in this crazy world everybody has a story, Hey, don‘t you tell me not to worry, all I get to hear is: I am so sorry, I a m so sorry, Am I dead or alive? I do not know exactly A fallen earth away from the world I lived a life full of twists and turns When I arrived, I pulled him out from under him I'm so high that I can not say a word I kill so much that I die and I do not feel sorry I could not eat the meat I have eaten so far I lost what we have won so far See the law, you leave your opportunities behind He tears your eyes when you have dreams Let Dad take the world once Before one or two goals are scored Longing for my legs to be straight and standing See what I have a story with my own conscience This ritual is like a snake's trunk Wrap around both hands and Your life goes on... ی همه چی سفید سیاهه چیزی رنگی نی بازم من و یه جسم لش و بی حال دوباره رنگ پوسته شده گچ دیوار وای انقد کشیدم که نمی گیره خندم با چشمام قفلم به این آتیش رو فندک یه اتاق تاریک با بوی دود گاری چه بخت گندی داری تو با جیب خالی نگو که هستیم رنگ مشابه من یه عمره رو صورتم خنده اتاقه من مُردم پسر یه عقدم که سر تا پای مسیرو همیشه خوردم به سنگ اگه که مردم حلال کنینم آره تا حالا ساختم ولی الان بریدم از خودم از همه از میز محکمه از فکر به فرداها که روی مغزمه من مُردم یا زندم ؟ دقیق نمی دونم یه زمین خورده خاکی از دنیا به دورم بیخی زندگی شدم که پر ِ پیچ و خمه رسیدم تهش کشیدم بیرون کل زیر و بمش اونقد بالا ام که نمی تونم حرفی بزنم اونقد می کشم تا بمیرم و دل نمی کنم گوشت نشد به تنم اون که تا حالا خوردم باختم هموناییم که تا حالا بردم ببین قانونشه فرصتاتو پشت سر می ذاری اون وقتی که تو رویاهات داری چشماتو می مالی ولش کن بابا بذار یه بارم دنیا ببره قبل اینکه یکی دو سه تا گل اون بزنه حسرت جفت پاهام واسه صاف واستادن ببین چیه با وجدان خودم داستان دارم این رسمه روزگاره مثل تنه ماره می پیچه دور دو دست و زندگیت ادامه داره

Paradise 03:31
PARADISE (text by Victoria Priester & Robert Soko) I will lead u darling Lead u from despair Just take my hand and cling to me Through desert sand *** Seven days and a thousand miles You and me, side by side Laj laj laj We wander through the trials Walking through dust and fire Reborn as bright Safire Laj laj laj Just don’t turn around *** We have reached paradise Do you feel mesmerized? *** See my hair glowing In the breeze flowing Catch my eye and fly away with me On a sail above the sea *** Seven days and thousand miles You and me, side by side Laj laj laj We’ll see the blue whales fly Even in the storm and rain We become stronger then pain Laj laj laj Just don’t turn around **** We have reached paradise Do you feel mesmerized?

"PITBULL" (text Nenad Janković aka Dr Nele Karajlić) I’m willful and I’m skillful I’m d d d delightful And I find myself mixed Between beauty and the beast Kill them quick that's my motto Than police take a photo Than police take a photo On a sunny side of street The wolf I like the most He refused to be a dog He refused to be a creature Just like Lassie was Just show me a bloke And in seconds I ‘ll choke In second like tomato Like tomato I’ll squeeze I am Pit bull terrier I am pit Bull Terrier Black Cat - White Cat I’m hit and I’m fit And I never never quit When I bleed I bleed Like James Cagney on the screen I shit and I spit But I don’t care a bit I am proud and I happy ´Cos I am not a human being I am Pit Bull terrier I am Pit Bull Terrier Black Cat White Cat I never feel sadness I never feel pain With my cunning and with my stealth I don’t need a brain I never feel sadness I never feel pain With my cunning and with my stealth I don’t need a brain I am Pit Bull Terrier I am Pit Bull Terrier

"OUT TO LOUNGE BALKANBEATS REMIX" (Lyrics by Arturo Gueglio & Cristian Anibal del Negro / Buenos Aires, Argentina 2017) Si venimos a reparar los agujeros en la pared que dejaron tus disparos, no te asustes Si venimos a reparar los agujeros en la pared que dejaron tus disparos, no te asustes calculando el impacto aspecto abstracto de medición del hecho al acto un largo trecho la bala cruza el pecho camino estrecho los arboles de techo se instala,germina,genetica combina los atomos componen la materia elimina teoria alternativa la ciencia herramienta los pibes les fascina patean colmenas en casas ajenas provocan escusas con manos intrusas es una conquista falsos coleccionistas sin nadie que resista ganan los narcisistas RATATATATA no te asustes! Si venimos a reparar los agujeros en la pared que dejaron tus disparos, no te asustes Si venimos a reparar los agujeros en la pared que dejaron tus disparos, no te asustes Si venimos a reparar los agujeros en la pared que dejaron tus disparos, no te asustes bump bump tomahawk en tu cabeza no resiste bump drones en el aire no son chiste bump bump tomahawk en tu cabeza no resiste bump drones en el aire no son chiste saltan pulgas al precipicio cuando las tierras arden no importa lo que tarden los divididos se ponen de acuerdo dejando rencores para el recuerdo Rompecabezas que les faltan piezas las marcas las manos tropiezas tristezas algunos rezan otros seguimos buscando en le fondo del mar la pureza RATATATATA no te asustes! Si venimos a reparar los agujeros en la pared que dejaron tus disparos, no te asustes

Lyrics: Adieu ! je crois qu'en cette vie Je ne te reverrai jamais. Dieu passe, il t'appelle et m'oublie ; En te perdant je sens que je t'aimais. Pas de pleurs, pas de plainte vaine. Je sais respecter l'avenir. Vienne la voile qui t'emmène, En souriant je la verrai partir. Tu t'en vas pleine d'espérance, Avec orgueil tu reviendras ; Mais ceux qui vont souffrir de ton absence, Tu ne les reconnaîtras pas. Adieu ! tu vas faire un beau rêve Et t'enivrer d'un plaisir dangereux ; Sur ton chemin l'étoile qui se lève Longtemps encor éblouira tes yeux. Un jour tu sentiras peut-être Le prix d'un coeur qui nous comprend, Le bien qu'on trouve à le connaître, Et ce qu'on souffre en le perdant. CROATIAN: Adio, adio sad moj brat Oprosti mi na francuskom Al Jebem ti rat i krizu i silu i svu tu moćnu kliku i veliku sliku, biznis i politiku i bombe što su padale na moj grad ubile život posijale jad ubile nadu izbrisale sutra morao sam na put tog jutra po žegi i kiši bio dan il mrak pješke kroz šumu pa skok na teretni vlak prošao hiljadu milja i sad sam tu nadomak cilja i pružam ti ruku Pa čovječe nisam ja tamo neki tat Ko da ću ne daj Bože krast il djecu klat Pa nisam ja zvijer Od zvjeri bježim da preživim I samo tražim mir.

Tesla Ska 02:30
"TESLA" (Lyrics by Robert Šoko, Yuriy Gurzhy⎜Berlin 2017) He is a genius, He is a mess, He is the best, He is a sinner, He is a saint, he is possessed, He is cursed and he is blessed, He left his nest and headed to the west, Talking to a pigeon became his own religion, To understand this world he use the intuition, Sometimes he talks to me about power transmission, He don‘t believe in God, he is following his vision, chorus: My brain, my brain, my brain is a black hole, Your heart, your heart, my magnetic pole, New power and daemons, establishing control, Cold hearts, rough love, they alternate my soul Alternate my soul, Tesla

MALE VOCAL: Das war einer dieser Tage, fühlte sich an wie eine Plage, aber du bist endlich weg, und ich bin wieder "in der Lage", Ich genieß´die schöne tage, das steht sicher außer Frage denn du bist endlich weg, und ich bin wieder "in der Lage", SCHÖNE TAGE Hör mal zu was ich sage, es steht doch außer Frage, aber nach jeder Ehescheidungsklage , kommen wieder Schöne Tage...

Ξένος εδώ, ξένος εκεί, όπου και αν πάγω ξένος αν πάγω και στη μάνα μου, παραβαρώ ο καημένος θα πάρω έναν ανήφορο, να βγω σε κορφοβούνι αχ, να βρω κλαράκι φουντωτό και ριζιμιό λιθάρι (να βρω και μια κρυόβρυση, στον ίσκιο της να κάτσω αχ, να πω τα μαύρα ντέρτια μου και τα παράπονά μου, τραγούδια αν έχει η μαύρη γης κι ο τάφος χαμογέλια έχει και μένα η καρδιά, που βρίσκομαι στα ξένα). English: Alien(foreigner/stranger) here, alien there, wherever I go,I feel like an alien, Even when I visit my own mother, I feel like I impose upon her, so I will climb a mountain to get to its peak, oh, seeking for a little bushy branch and a rooted rock (I wish i could find an icy watered fountain and rest under its shadow,oh, and confess my darkest pains, my sorrows and all the grievances so if the black ground has its songs and the grave has its smiles, so does my heart have the above, as long as I am in a foreign land)

about

This soundtrack is an audio ticket to continue the beautiful journey started by the art-documentary "Here we Move - Here we Groove" produced by a Bosnian movie-maker Sergej Kreso & DOXY Films Amsterdam.

Slaloming through sounds brought from far away, preserved through the journey and re-planted upon arrival, it is a hymn to our present and future.

Far away from fear-mongering and hate-preaching, somewhere between ideals and reality, this musical collection sets up a stage for another sense of identity.

Produced by Robert Šoko & Uroš Petković (BalkanBeats SoundSystem), Berlin 2020
