Ladies-gentlemen of the modern world!
Forgetful of roots, nice boots! Shall we?
This is a trip through the underground!
You're the "first" one here! (in rus. "первый")
Come all, step near!
Here, we have a road-raging-cajun!
Mr. "Johnson" locked by a "mage" in
A cage of depression, implosive fella!
Takes much abuse, until he shoots all!
Stellar! Let's keep moving, time's pressing!
Questions? No? Well, keep guessing...
Exhibit 'B' - "procurement" experts!
Disgusting creatures with "capital" features
Who blame everyone but him or herself
"Taught" by the world, and it teaches:
Survival for all - the "hawks" and the leeches!
What's that brown-looking "stuff" on your beaches?
Next - our "models" - glamorous! White as a snow!
Raisin-skins thrice a day, that's diet nouveau!
Ho ho ho! For the self-conscious younglings
Who "tend" to pass this disease to their (one)off-springs
And that brings us...
To the "special" example, heroic, plus ample!
Provided there's "something" left in the ampule!
Throwing a wobbly on grandfather's pension
A "social" retort to high-school detention!
And just as you - I'M eager to know
How far in life will this creature go?
And finally!!! Wait...let me get on stage...
ouch, f...! what is this?
(sound of climbing over dead bodies and bones)
- "Somebody" better clean this mess, damn it!
- Oh, OK, I am ready...
- loose the cigarette...
- Loose the cigarette!
- 'K, got it!
- K, on 1, ready? And - Action!
- DO OBSERVE!
The judge, always ready to "serve"!
As one of you, chained to TeeVee!
Forming opinions, blank knowledge, BUT - FREELY!!!
Taking for granted charades and debauchery!
You show me a finger, and I'll show you - archery!
How fortunate, targets are always in sight!
No shortage of fools that are ready to fight!
It's a "wonderful wonderful world", skip the words, son!
Cross a map-line, be treated - a "person"!
Not sure about you, but my tank is 3/4-full!
Contraband cargo - shine of the moon!
Oh, theeeere's the last fish, pass the f#####g harpoon!!!
No harpoon?!! How 'bout family-atomics?!!
A seat-warmer butt-on for all fans-of-parktronics!
Empty suits, discussing fate of the planet, another summit!?
Entertain me, show some skin! Damn it, "Janet"!
Tell you what, you got 5 second to get a worthy attraction!
If not, I'm off to search for weapons of mass distraction!
...eyes open - slowly...
staring contest with darkness
it wins, always, infinite vastness...
of sounds wrapped in fear...
is it all that bad? is the doom that near?
will our deeds and names soon be forgotten?
are we all that rotten?
Next to me is ALL that's beloved and cherished, little peace of my own
I discover something, new truth is known:
- Today, I'll start making World a "little bit better"...
one step at a time.
