Ilia Temelkov Emotional, really straight forward music with as emotional and simple, yet powerful lyrics. Definitely the best Bulgarian record of the year, probably ever made. Buy it, share it and love it. Favorite track: Draw The Line.

Track Name: The Bottom
I will stay at the bottom, because people’s eyes are sincere. I will stay at the bottom, because people here don’t pretend to understand. The difference between me and you is that I escape with the pen and paper. You wear fake crowns just to be remembered. Move Back. I am sick of your sound. I am sick of the lack of meaning in your words. I am not afraid to be ignored, because everything I’ve been doing, I’ve been doing it from the bottom of my heart. You can write one thousand songs but can you write your wrongs. At the end of the day I am the one who sleeps in peace. How about you?
Track Name: Passive Youth
All you do is talk (3).All I hear is “I need” (3). Life is more than existing and surviving, why don’t you try learning and finding. Put yourself through the test not to live like the rest. For just one day. I promise you it will be ok.
The pressure is holding down on you, but it only feeds from what you thought was lost. All you do is talk, talk, talk. When all you need is the air to breath. No excuses, no complaining. Your world is shaking because your mind is breaking. Life is more than existing and surviving. Why don’t you try learning and finding. So stop the hiding. Let worlds collide. Strike them hard with the fire that burns inside. We no longer have to hide.
Track Name: Draw The Line
They promise you money, they promise you hoes, but you are just another fool caught up in the dead man’s clothes. They promise you money, they promise you hoes, but you are nothing more than another fool caught up in the devil’s claws. Embrace your darkest demons and hold to them tight, because it’s the 21st century, man. You will need them alive. Be the king of your heart’s mire, be the god of your exile. You bow to nothing. You bow to no one. They promise you money, they promise you hoes, but you are just another fool caught up in the dead man’s clothes. They promise you money, they promise you hoes, but you are nothing more than another fool caught up in the devil’s claws. The day will come when you will have to draw the line. You are going to choose the path of money? Or the truth you left behind.
Money over truth, truth over money? Draw the line, choose your side.
Track Name: After Twenty Years
So this is goodbye. I guess we won’t give it another try. I hope after twenty years we’ll overcome our fears. I hope after twenty years there will be something left of us. I will always admire you. I will always believe in you. After everything we’ve been trough I’m not giving up on you. Every moment, every hour you gave me power. I still remember the sweet and the sour. I still remember the cities we devoured. I am pretty sure we won’t talk so often, I am pretty sure we won’t see each other. So I take a vow to myself never to forget your names. Every moment, every hour you gave me power. I still remember the sweet and the sour I still remember the cities we devoured. I will never find a friend like you. You deserve unconditional love and respect. The strength you carry is with me till the end.
Track Name: Snowblack
She came with the snow to borrow a heart so out of control. I am wondering should I run or should I bow. I just don’t know. Are you happy? Do you love me? Honestly do you love me? But think fast. Think fast because I don’t have much time. My heart is falling apart. I don’t need your cold embrace I just need the smile back on my face. Remember there’s a thin line between love and hate? Now you are free to escape, but I won’t wait. Every breath, every touch, every word meant nothing. They mean nothing. When I see you it feels like black snow is flooding my heart.
Track Name: Never Look Back, Always Ahead
Needles to say we have truly lost our way. Fearless I admit. I intend to stay. I will fight for the better day. I won’t let this fade away. I will stay here, I won’t disappear. Push forward, cherish what you’ve got. Don’t ask for too much because karma strikes back. Live fast. Don’t look back in regret, because sooner or later death will come to collect. Never forget. Live for the day. Let’s celebrate times well taken. Let’s celebrate lives without fear and regret. I will never take these days for granted, although the days took us away. Never look back. Always ahead.
Track Name: The Death of Me
It feels so fucking strange struggling so many years to change. I got so much pain to bear, but how can I when I don’t care. Am I my own worst enemy?
Living free in this misery? It was so hard to find myself. Living hell.
I feel the hate. It’s crushing my bones and I can feel the love - it’s slipping away so easily from me. I will be the death of me. I’ll make my own history.
Am I my own worst enemy? Living free in this misery? It was so hard to find myself. Living hell.
