I like this Ukrainian band, Tartak. They are from my ancestral homeland of Volyn. 

“I’m not here”

I’ve died in the battle,
I’ve been already killed,
Around me the bodies of the foes.
I’ve gone invincible,
I’ve slammed the doors,
Behind me I’ve left no debts.
Also in the end
I saw the sunrise,
A ray of sunshine
And drop of dew.
I’ve lived a decent life,
Though, maybe not seen by eyes,
But I wasn’t scared, didn’t whine, nor beg.

I’m not here!
The wind carries me along.
I’m not here!
I know secrets big and small.
I’m not here!
Next to me the eagles soars.
I’m not here!
But it’s important, that you all were!
And I’m not here!

I’ve got into adversity,
I’ve drunk the poison.
I was invited by my allegedly friend,
I’ve called him brother,
I’ve covered up his loses,
Pooled him out of his failures, treated him from ailments.
And he betrayed me,
And he gladly
Put me under the strike of ballistic rockets.
And now I’m dying,
Straight to heaven,
And he begins the celebratory banquet.

I’m not here!
The wind carries me along.
I’m not here!
I know secrets big and small.
I’m not here!
Next to me the eagles soars.
I’m not here!
But it’s important, that you all were!
And I’m not here!

In the bygone days
I was driving on the highways,
Which I’ve used many times before.
I’ve behaved courteously,
And maybe all in vain,
I was rammed by ill-mannered Kam-AZ.*
And all my plans, resolutions,
Entailing delusions,
Turned into something, that I didn’t want.
On TV station
All the details and celebration,
And I’m on the way to another world.

I’m not here!
The wind carries me along.
I’m not here!
I know secrets big and small.
I’m not here!
Next to me the eagles soars.
I’m not here!
But it’s important, that you all were!
And I’m not here!

*Kam-AZ- the name of the Russian truck.
