OPINION:

So, Russia produces an dark and moody epic that feels like it comes from a ‘Lord Of The Rings’ film. Sergey certainly has the voice to carry the drama both in quiet at the beginning and as the drama intensifies to its ultimate conclusion.

PREDICTION:

All things taken into consideration, this should do well and finish in the top ten at the very least.

LYRICS:

“No, I can’t stay here longer
You cannot make me cry
So I will leave you to wonder
What will become of our lives

I’ll swallow hard, fall apart
Break and bleed but you won’t see

Tears won’t fall
While pride stands tall
Maybe they can’t be heard or seen
But tears aren’t quiet things

They scream
They scream
They scream

Though my throat is on fire
My eyes will be liars
And they’ll try to stay drier
Until you turn away

I’ll swallow hard, fall apart
Break and bleed but you won’t see

Tears will fall, I hear them all
They scream
(Scream, they scream)
They scream (Oh, oh)

Not so silent and innocent
Acid rain from your fingerprints
Echoes, rivers of loneliness
Hitting the walls of my heart

They scream
Not so silent and innocent
Acid rain from your fingerprints
They scream
Echoes, rivers of loneliness
Hitting the walls of my heart”
