01. The Great Hour


The history has swept over us just like a wave
It was the thirteen-years-long calm before the storm
And yet we haven’t made the world order
The stable structure in the way we want it to be.

We’ve been challenged, and I doubt that
We should stop, leaving everything as it is:
If it’s impossible to avoid the great war now,
Then there’s no time for nice gestures!

I see, the great hour has come
And the outbreak of a multilocal conflict
Might eventually
Turn into the world revolution!

But even if all these thoughts are total nonsense,
The war can give us a chance of even faster development,
So, let the red sunrise shine
Over this old world, just like a flag!
