Animals of Our Kind (Single 2010)

by STandART

ANIMALS OF OUR KIND Animals of our kind Do not feed from the hand They run like the wind through life Head over heels and against the wall Moving on weary feet Rushing in search till they bleed What they probably don’t even feel They usually do not feel that You dream of our glorious fur Shining around your shoulders For each fallen we’ll pay back twofold We have a perfect memory In need, we can claw and maul We’re gonna hunt down the hunters We can smell by a mile An animal of our kind
TĀDI ZVĒRI KĀ MĒS (Latvian version of the song “Animals of Our Kind”) Tādi zvēri kā mēs Nekad nebarosies no rokas Tie auļo caur dzīvi kā vējš Skrienot ar galvu sienā Meklējot nemiera trauksmē Kājas, noberztas asinīs Tie droši vien to nemaz nejūt Tie parasti nemēdz to just Tu sapņo par spalvu kā mums Rotājam Tavu kaklu Par ik kritušo paņemsim divkārt Mums ir lieliska atmiņa Mēs varam plosīt un plēst Medniekus miltos saberzt Mēs jau iztālēm jūtam Tādus zvērus kā mēs
SÅDANA DJUR SOM VI (Swedish version of the song “Animals of Our Kind”) Sådana djur som vi Ska man inte mata från handen Dom springer som vind genom livet hals över huvud, in i väggen Rör sej på trötta fötter Söker rusande tills dom blöder Som dom troligen aldrig känner Det känner dom vanligtvis inte Du drömmer om vår gyllene päls Skinande på dina axlar Vi tar tillbaka dubbelt för varje fallen Vårat minne sviker oss aldrig Vid behov, klöser och slår vi Jägarna kommer att slaktas Vi känner lukten på avstånd Sådana djur som vi
THE FIELD WHERE I DIED I spend my days wearing and giving smiles Weapons in my hands, and a white and hearty smile The fire never sleeps under the purple sky What a lovely way to kill our time Our worlds lie in debris, I’ll wreathe A barbed wire hence around myself Neither anyone in the world will reach me Nor will be taken away from me “Don’t you know, you – silly horse, things will be all right” Your weary eyes tell me with a ghost of a smile “Last night I climbed up the beanstalk to the stars and then Composed a fairy-tale of them with a happy and endless end” You pretend that you’re asleep So I couldn’t see your tears But I can see clearly through your lies As through the dress you glow inside I need nothing in this world right now But a white and hearty smile Take me in your arms tonight And make me lose my mind
MANS SVĒTUMS Latvian version of the song “My Holiness”. Še būs Tev mana roka Satver cieši, cieši to Ja gribi pāri tikt Vairs nevajag laivu Tev Virs ūdens varu staigāt es Un Tevi nest Mans svētums, mana gaisma Tavas bailes izdzēsīs Kā izdziest krīts Vairs nevajag sauli Tev Es esmu īstā saule Tev Es esmu Tev Bet man vajag kādu rētu Atvērtu, lai atcerētos Kāds esmu es Kā rētas aizvilksies Man tas viss sāks aizmirsties Mans smaids kļūs atkal nepatiess


"STandART has many cards up their sleeve, a few of which being the soul crushing vocals and music following the traditions of honest analogue synthpop.”
- Anders Melts, "Body Machine Body" festival organizer, Estonia

“‘Animals Of Our Kind’ elaborates more on the 80s factor in STandART’s music and leaves out harder guitars completely. It’s also quite a timeless composition, one of those never loosing their attraction for the listeners. Its light rhythms, though prominent enough not to be overheard, always have to succumb to the urgent melancholy they’re embraced by that only sometimes is complemented by a certain Dark Wave or Post Punk feeling.”
- Sebastian Huhn, Music webzine "Reflections of Darkness", Germany
