Feeling ugly, looking pretty
Yellow ribbons, black graffiti
Word is written, bone is broken
No big secret left unspoken
Sun is painted in the corner
But it's never getting warmer
All the lies they keep on telling
But you never check the spelling

Flying bullets
Hit the targets
Wings and halos,
Five to seven
In this white robe
through the darkness
Paragliding
back to heaven!

Time is running we are sitting
Back together, just for splitting
You are crying in the corner
Always next and never former
Open up and let me hear it
Former body future spirit
Brain is useless, chair is rocking
Open doors for dead man walking

    Song Meaning:Ugh. I can't believe NONE of you has done their research.

    First, here is a more correct translation of the original Russian lyrics (it's amazing how much songs sometimes change from one language to another):

    "I’m drawing with black paint
    A dumb word on the wall
    This word is not important for me
    This word is not new for you
    It's vain for me
    It's necessary for you
    I’m drawing with black paint
    This drawing is very messy

    Bullet in the heart
    Brain on the door
    Halos and wings
    We’re putting on
    This white robe
    Soul to heaven
    We put it in a box
    We let it go

    Time is 20:10 again
    We're not together now
    You’re sitting in the corner and crying
    Maybe you’re fooling me
    I enjoy listening to you
    Open only your soul to me
    Thoughts won't be needed here
    The time is 20:20 again"

    The song is based off of three poems written by a fan. According to T.A.T.U. themselves, it's against abortion, and harming others in general.

    General Comment:I think when she says "5 to 7" i think she means the cartridge of a gun.. as in the FN p90 or the FN five-seven since she was talking flying bullets hitting the targets... only thing I can think of when she says 5 to 7

    General Comment:5 to 7...5 = humans 6= hell 7= heaven.

    so 5 to 7 means from human to an "angel"
    "In this white robe
    through the darkness
    Paragliding
    back to heaven"

    in some religions and other beliefs one is an angel before being born. once you're born you're human, and when it says "back to heaven" she died and is returning back into heaven.

    that's at least what i think that little part means....

    great song.

    My Interpretation:I'm not sure if this is right but I think (if you've seen the video you know what i'm talking about):
    In the video the red head lady is dressed as a prostitute so I think she like represents the mother or the women who is pregnant. I think the black haired girl represents the baby because she's in jail. The red headed girl is also the women who signals for the men to shoot in the execution part. I think the black haired girl signifies the child and the prostitute signifies a women whose getting rid of her child even though it isn't the child's fault, its her fault. At the end I think the phone ringing signifies that the child shouldn't of had been killed.

    General Comment:I think some of the second verse is incorrect. But I guess it's no big deal. We don't know the official lyrics. They haven't even released this song yet. They sang it at a few concerts, but it's not "official".

    I love the reference to "Dangerous and Moving". Sweet.

    General Comment:I've heard two different interpretations to this song. One of them is that this is a song about abortion, and the other interpretation suggest that Yulia died because she shot a man in there video All About Us.

    Song Meaning:I heard that the meaning was anti-abortion as well, and against killing in general.


    Lena's quote from UCSB interview: "Like "Beliy Plashik," it's our new song. "Did you see the video? It's against abortions and against when someone kills another, or when somebody hurts another... it's against that, and against abortion."

    I can see it, especially in the refrain.

    Song Meaning:I thought Five represents redemption..grace..?
    The number Six is man's number and Seven means perfection,completeness of a soul(1 represents god,Man/6 + God/1 = Complete,I guess that means back to heaven in a way.)
    Well thats according to the bible.

    "In this white robe
    through the darkness
    Paragliding
    back to heaven"

    Freedom through redemption leads to the spiritual completeness.

    'You are crying in the corner
    Always next and never former'

    Thinking about the future but never the past.

    'Open up and let me hear it
    Former body future spirit'

    Body is gone,but the soul lives on.

    Just my personal opinion.
