It is the first single from our new signing Adaen's upcoming conceptional album. This Russian post-progressive trio has their unique observation on the life. They always focus on their music how to express their observation. This is song was inspired by my good friend british Craig Tarry who died in a tragic accident with his managing band Viola Beach in this Feb. Valentine of Adaen' s vocal was moved by my story telling, after he went back to Moscow after the China tour as a session musician,he asked me to know more story about Craig, he emailed me one day: Craing inspire me so much, I decided to write a song. 3-4 months later, I got their draft demo, it made me cry.

The whole story is too long if I insist to tell it out, I suggest you read the words on this upcoming album's sleeve:

Words: Valentine from Adaen

This happened in March 2016, when I met Tony in Hong Kong airport. I was a session guitarist of Paskura on their tour in China and Tony was our manager. We always shared rooms in hostels together and had long night talks there. Tony told me about his friend Craig Tarry, the manager of Viola Beach, who died in the car accident in February. He also suggested Adaen to take part in the tribute album his label Handshake Records was working on. I said I would think about it, because I needed to know Craig more to have enough thoughts about what song would be suitable for that. And as I didn't know him, I had to, not to be a band who joins that kinds of actions without awareness what they are playing for.

Having returned to Moscow, I began exploring the materials about Craig Tarry, his life, his work with bands, the fatal accident. All that I had found, impressed me a lot, he had been a great person, I called Tony to say that I would compose something to tribute Craig. And that was the miracle, I felt like the songs were being written in my head themselves. Constantly. And "Terry" was the very first song, and the rest were just spinning about it. Parts of melodies, riffs, lyrics, drum patterns - the most creative ideas I had ever got were being born day after day. I tried so many guitar tunings and experimented with vocal parts to be able to compose and to play the music I had never played before. In this album Adaen has changed greatly, I think. I have changed. We have changed.

Track Name: Terry
Sure you will
Hear the message I
Left for you

Foreign strays
He is not answering
Test the line

Little ships with blackened sails
Try to bear your pain
Little rainbows set to sleep
Cry for you again

The fire on the Еarth
The fire on the Еarth
The fire on the Еarth

As we have learnt to sell ourselves
All we love we throw
Half a minute left to speak
Elevators go

And we relax and let the lift go on
Unplug the wire
You gave yourself for absolutely free
When lit the fire

The fire on the Earth
The fire on the Earth

See you
Shine on when i dive in you
Bless me when i continue
No one will make me leave you
What I finally got
Through you
That's why I'll be here for you
That's why I'll be there with you
That's what now i hear from you
Welcome back your home
Russian Song

I don't really matter
I'm not really sober
We're forever scattered
And not really over

Swim in dainty splendor
Clouds in water beaded
Cuddles are so tender
If i know it's needed

I will exit for you

We who owned the scissors
Cut the last conductor
Finally we've sailed up
Each to one's own harbor

Your hands stroke the soft grass
You untwist your tresses
You get ready for this
You forget the faces

You untwist your soft scarf
Want it to be warmer
You give me your soft heart
Want it to be for me

Alleys of the winners
Spare points in charging
Acerose is whispering
Pauseless songs of parting

I would exit for you
Saying this I'm sober
I don't really matter
You're not really over

We respond for this
You're not really over
Serpent Skin

Serpent skin
I'm in
I'm falling down on you
Blessing eyes
Me come with good intent

Serpent tears
I drop
When touch your velvet hand

Segments fall
So I'm becoming
What I am

Empty strength
Of grip
It's harder to embrace

Serpent skin
I'm in about to get

Get undressed
Get undressed
Get undressed
Serpent skin I take it down

Serpent skin I take it down
Wake me up I burn in my house
Serpent skin it fits me well
Good intents cover my road to hell

Serpent skin I take it down
Wake me up I burn in the house
Serpent skin it fits me well
Good intents cover my road to hell

feeling whole cold
gestures of the wild
i dress up all the windows
from any who wants to know -
know what i have inside

20 hours a day
i sleep on the floor
i needn't beds without you
nothing i need so
nowhere i want to go

i would end up my life
throw it to your feet
but it's run out of breathing
empty i'm now
i'm ridiculous
i'm ridiculous

i have spoilt your life
i ain't worth forgiving
nothing i'm worth
i will always love
