“The Cross of Changes” by Enigma

През 1990 г. MICHAEL CRETU, роден в Букурещ през 1957 г., известен дотогава главно като продуцент на жена си, dance певицата SANDRA и на някои песни на Mike Oldfield, решава да направи нещо различно. Неговото верую е “Старите правила и навици трябва да се отхвърлят и премахнат за да може да бъде създадено нещо ново.”

Проектът ENIGMA се появява, защото “Исках да експериментирам в студиото без оглед на музикалните канони – споделя CRETU – и да създам музика, каквато не можех да си купя никъде. Имам усещането за тайнственост в тази музика, която исках да представя непокътната от възприятията и предубежденията си на продуцент и композитор. Хората са с отворени сетива и противно на мнението на някои звукозаписни компании търсят необичайното и това се доказва от успеха на ENIGMA.”

След издаването на първия албум “MCMXC a.D.” на проекта ENIGMA от 1990 г., се появяват множество последователи, които повтарят формулата за смесване на григориански песнопения с етно звука на кавали и дудуци. “Време бе да търся нови подходи и във втория албум на ENIGMA – продължава CRETU – включих елементи от фолклор на страни от цял свят, при което се ровех денонощно в моята библиотека за да намеря нещо подходящо. Трябва да си призная освен това, че мразя да се повтарям и да правя едно и също нещо непрекъснато, затова търсех нещо различно.”

Албума “THE CROSS OF CHANGES” или “Кръстът на промените” на проекта ENIGMA ще можете да оцените на 28 август, събота, в предаването “Картини от една изложба” на програма “Хоризонт” на БНР, след новините от 21.00 ч.

LYRICS:

Second Chapter

We came out from the deep to help and understand but not to kill
It takes many lives till we succeed to clear the debts of many, many hundred years.


The Eyes of Truth

Alsyn gazryn zereglee, aduu shig mal shig torolzonoo khuoo.
Alsyn gazryn zereglee, aduu shig mal shig torolzonoo khuoo.
Je me regarde
Je me sens
Je vois des enfants
Je suis enfant
The eyes of truth are always watching you.
Alsyn gazryn zereglee, aduu shig mal shig torolzonoo khuoo.


Return to Innocence

Love - Devotion
Feeling - Emotion
Don t be afraid to be weak
Don t be too proud to be strong
Just look into your heart, my friend
That will be the return to yourself
The return to innocence.
(The return to innocence)
And if you want, then start to laugh
If you must, then start to cry
Be yourself, don t hide
Just believe in destiny.
Don t care what people say
Just follow your own way
Don t give up, and use the chance
To return to innocence.
That s not the beginning of the end
That s the return to yourself
The return to innocence.
(That s the return to innocence)



I Love You ... I ll Kill You

I see love, I can see passion
I feel danger, I feel obsession
Don t play games with the ones who love you
Cause I hear a voice who says:
I love you...I ll kill you
Loneliness, I feel loneliness in my room
Look into the mirror of your soul
Love and hate are one in all
Sacrifice turns to revenge and believe me
You ll see the face who ll say:
I love you...I ll kill you
But I ll love you forever.
Loneliness, I feel loneliness in my room



Silent Warrior

Long ago, for many years, white men came in the name of GOD.
They took their land, they took their lives, a new age has just begun.
They lost their GODS, they lost their smile, they cried for help for the last time.
Liberty was turning into chains, but all the white men said: \"That s the cross of changes. \"
In the name of GOD - the fight for gold, these were the changes.
Tell me - is it right - in the name of GOD, these kind of changes?
They tried to fight for liberty, without a chance in hell, they gave up
White men won in the name of GOD with the cross as alibi.
There s no GOD who ever tried to change the world in this way.
And for the ones who abuse His name, there ll be no chance to escape on judgment day.
In the name of GOD - the fight for gold, these were the changes.
Tell me - is it right - in the name of GOD, these kind of changes?
Tell me why, tell me why, tell me why the white man said: \"That s the cross of changes \"?
Tell me why, tell me why, tell me why, in the name of GOD - these kind of changes.



The Dream of the Dolphin

In every color there s the light
In every stone sleeps a crystal
Remember the Shaman when he used to say:
\"Man is the dream of the dolphin. \"


Age Of Loneliness (Carly s Song)

Tosonguyn oroygoor toosrood
Carly, don t be sad
Life is crazy, life is mad
Don t be afraid
Carly, don t be sad
That s your destiny, the only chance
Take it, take it in your hands
Tosonguyn oroygoor toosrood
Carly, don t be sad
Life is crazy, life is mad
Tosonguyn oroygoor toosrood



Out From the Deep

We came out from the deep to learn to love, to learn how to live
We came out from the deep to avoid the mistakes we made.
That s why we are here.
We came out from the deep to learn and to understand, but not to kill
It takes many lives till we succeed to clear the debts of many hundred years.
That s why we are here.
That s why we are here.


The Cross of Changes

If you understand or if you don t
If you believe or if you doubt
There s a universal justice
And the Eyes of Truth are always watching you.
