Just give me a breathing space in our little war Please no need to fight ‘cause we lost control I leave off and recede from this senseless game Look into my eyes there is no hate So hard to stop in time and come to senses Each day like battlefield I hate it But it’s us who made it So dominate manipulate me Destroy this wall of principles and save us Yet all can be returned now Just step closer and break me down Just give me a “one more chance” to make it right Don’t hone your fangs and please no need to bite We can choose to lay down all our arms Look my hands are empty I have no gun So hard to stop in time and come to senses Each day like battlefield I hate it But it’s us who made it So dominate manipulate me Destroy this wall of principles and save us Yet all can be returned now Just step closer and break me down You dominate manipulate me Destroy this wall of principles and save us Yet all can be returned now Just step closer and break me down

Polaris 05:21
What’s happened to me Everything annoys And this place got useless After you made the choice You hit me once but hurt me twice I look into your eyes A scared regretful stare You blight my mind my heart confides Dumbfounded by your snide And swallowed by despair Can you see it’s just the beginning And I know I’ll fall and keep on crawling to the Guilty pleasure of my own ‘Cause you are my Polaris I know Your deeds are harmful Destroy as you caress We’re bound really tightly I feel obsessed Just one your touch just one more sight My body gets excited Accepted slavery You blight my mind my heart confides Dumbfounded by your snide And swallowed by despair Can you see it’s just the beginning And I know I’ll fall and keep on crawling to the Guilty pleasure of my own ‘Cause you are my Polaris I know

Dead radar flowers beneath the skies Those suffering ghosts of dying life They wait for saviours from above Their land’s wasted and cursed The viral transmission is lost Broken thoughts in broken minds They are damaged paralysed With the coins on the eyes They are searching for the paradise They’ve burned the air they hear the voice That comes from strangers through the noise Intoxicated by blind faith They’re trying to keep the weak signal up And follow the digital wraith Broken thoughts in broken minds They are damaged paralysed With the coins on the eyes They are searching for the paradise Finding nothing anywhere They are screaming in despair Left and lost in burning skies They are damaged paralysed

Drizzle in my eyes In my hands I hold November sky And listen to their song You touch me with the fog I sense your presence here And feel your breath on my neck You’re in the air so near Soul sand slowly pours through my cupped hands And I’m freezing in your dreams Falling into autumn leaves of memories We hide in the rain Faded colours of departed days And flickering city lights You took my hand in yours And led me into haze Released my hand and shut that door Now I’m on my own Soul sand slowly pours through my cupped hands And I’m freezing in your dreams Falling into autumn leaves of memories

At the distance of a lens view You keep your secrets I hunt you In the smoke of red room light There’s a chapel of your life I stand alone beyond this line That came from the dusk of your life I haunted you and learned your steps All your habits all regrets And i know you are there I feel your sweet scent in the air And I’m afraid to be spotted Although this is what I want And you know I’m hiding here These relations are so unreal And you wanna be spotted This is what you’re craving for I cannot leash obsessive thoughts I’m under threat between two worlds My obsession sleeps until I wanna touch don’t wanna feel I sneak into your special place To get to know your own space I stare at walls I’m petrified They’re full of photos of my life And i know you are there I feel your sweet scent in the air And I’m afraid to be spotted Although this is what I want And you know I’m hiding here These relations are so unreal And you wanna be spotted This is what you’re craving for

Distant Star 04:35
Slitting heavenly expanse I leave white swirls of smoke behind Drops of sweat on my strained face Illuminated with dashboard lights I rush in pursuit of ultra-short waves This is the mission of my life Leaving out the atmosphere Break into space without fright Call of distant stars Pulls me through the space of dust I feel I’m filled with light And blinded by sporadic shine I close my eyes And sing a song of starland skies Stepping on gas leaving frontier In no-man’s land I disappear So weeks have passed and I stopped counting the days This signal chase is one-way trip My power’s low and I drift in this place Looks like I’m hostage of the dead ship No don’t you grieve don’t be sad that I’m gone I’m on my way to my cherished light And if you suddenly miss me I’m there Just raise you gaze at starry skies Now I’m a distant star I am a signal on radar Destroyed by sporadic shine Reflect silent deadly sunlight I close my eyes Now I’m part of starland skies I feel i lost control And into particles I fall

We tried to play this game without rules You’re such a perfect player your moves are cruel Did I not warn you that in the end One of us will suffer in pain Call my name before I lose control My mind is screaming there are bleeding holes ‘Cause your words are like bullets in my chest And claws are etching your name like behest And now you’re in my head and now you’re in my eyes You are like red blood cells you wrapped me in your life You burned me down inverted my whole world My heart’s still beating even after stabbing blow Will you take my hand when I sink deep down In quicksands of my mind Searching for the way just to stay alive There’s no place to hide Pictures of your smile are drowning in the wine Waiting for your touch just a for a while Waiting for your eyes just to stay alive Waited for your voice only to hear goodbye Your eyes like deep ocean after storm Without your sweetest smell I feel forlorn Tell me where to find the stamina To forget and let it go This game is over it’s time to say goodbye All I’ve got hurt memories in my mind Tell me how to fix my brain machine Booze and cigarettes that’s my medicine Will you take my hand when I sink deep down In quicksands of my mind Searching for the way just to stay alive There’s no place to hide Pictures of your smile are drowning in the wine Waiting for your touch just a for a while Waiting for your eyes just to stay alive Waited for your voice only to hear goodbye

- My father tried to teach me human emotions. They are, difficult. - You mean your designer. - Yes. - Robots don't feel anything. They don't get hungry, they don't sleep. - I do. I have even had dreams. - Human beings have dreams. Even dogs have dreams. But not you. You are just a machine. An imitation of life. Can a robot write a symphony? Can a robot turn a canvas into a beautiful masterpiece? - Can you? - Ever simulate anger before? Emotions don't seem like a useful simulation for a robot. - Dr. killed himself. I don't know why he wanted to die. I thought he was happy. Maybe it was something I did. Did I do something? He asked me for a favor. Made me promise. Maybe I was wrong. Maybe he was scared. - Scared of what? - You have to do what someone asks you. Don't you? If you love them. Don’t you love them?

Electricity in wire veins System numbers just instead of names We are shadows of the human race You made us execute behests We learn watching all your acts Analysing your conduct Handling data of the process And transformed with progress We create our own kind the same as you Must comply with basic rules We are a generation of a new type We stay in serried ranks we’re left behind You say we are soulless Cyber pieces of regret Our screams and our fates Are just symbols on displays We look into your dreams and read your memories Trying to understand your unpredictable deeds Trying to imitate trying to mimic life You were so beautiful but we are so alive You made us look like you equipped us with minds But said we’re not equal the reason was not found Why you rejected us we are the same as you Like all the living things we’ll fade and perish too

I Disappear 04:57
From suffering and madness Where lunacy hurts mind They’re coming to destroy us And fill us up with fright I see the chasing shadows That climbs into the hearts I feel the storm is coming And skies are falling apart I spread my wings And I fly high where no one sees When lights go down I disappear They came to take my silence They wanna take control I feel like something’s changing Right here inside my soul I hear sadistic lullaby It’s playing in my ears From fields of deathlike buildings That howl in the wind I spread my wings And I fly high where no one sees When lights go down I disappear

Final Rowing 04:56
While sky’s still high I row my boat Right through the stream of dusty thoughts And in the end I’ll reach the goal But now you only heal my soul Push away your darkest days They’ll never come don’t hide your face Inhale the heaven I still row But now you only heal my soul Wash away your silent tears They’ll never come don’t feed your fears As night still hides feelings are lost Run through the streets of sleepy ghosts And waterfalls they hear me call But now you only heal my soul Catching dreams under the stars I hear the whales I’m like sonar Inhale the heaven I still row But now you only heal my soul

about

"I See The Storm Is Coming" (taken from: "I Disappear")

Sometimes the work of a record label has an interesting side effect: It defies borders, and cultures, especially with an international artist line-up like ours. Dependent works with bands from the US, Sweden, Germany, UK, Canada, Belgium, Norway, France, South Africa and other countries. With Ginger Snap5 now, we have arrived at a new place on the map: Ukraine. Ginger Snap5 (inspired by the underground horror movie "Ginger Snaps") is a duo from Odessa and Kiyv, Ukraine, and their forthcoming album "Against The Days" has blown us away. Surprisingly, working with Roman Soroka and Alex Pavluk was very easy and inspired us thanks to the friendly communication we had with these two men who live in what we only know as an invaded country. This collaboration has completely warped any preconceptions we might have had about Ukraine and its people - and so does the highly modern and well-produced album that is "Against The Days."

Some will know Ginger Snap5 by a multitude of REALLY good third-party artist remixes including Pride And Fall, Solitary Experiments and Clicks, but few may know that these guys already released an album on the small Russian Label skyQode. The succeeding "Against The Days" now shows a matured band that is still committed to a hybrid of dense, upbeat EBM with glitchy Future Pop, all topped off by Roman Sorokas unique vocals.

The title "Against The Days" expresses everyday struggle of lives torn between stress, pressure and, above all, war and the invasion of the protagonists' home country: "While we finish this record, it is 2017, and in the heart of Europe we have the invaded peninsula of Crimea and the Donbass region where millions of our citizens live. Every day we read terrible news about our soldiers who die in combats, but at the same time, it dictates us to feel courage and resolve. We must fight and win this battle - both on the inside and outside. This is what "Against The Days" is about", explains spokesperson Alex Pavluk. With this background, Ginger Snap5 have delivered a highly unique and thrilling record that sets new impulses and defies borders. The lyric quote "I see a storm is coming" (from "I Disappear") is true in more than one way.
