This track is rumored to take its title from the K-141 Kursk nuclear cruise missile submarine which was lost with all hands when it sank in the Barents Sea on August 12, 2000. Speculation remains as to how long the crew remained alive while the sub rested on the ocean floor.

    The history of the title is sad, but the music is uplifting. Like touching heaven underwater.

    @Goldfoot: yep, you're right. Russian submarine, K-141 Kursk came to rest on the sea floor of the Artic Ocean, 85 miles north of Severmorsk, Russia. A smaller explosion followed by a much larger explosion, both of which measured on the ricther scale across Europe, killed most of the 118 men aboard. Cold, dark and with most of his crew members dead, Dimitri Kolesnikov, one of the ranking officers alive, scratched out these final words: “It’s dark here to write, but I’ll try by feel. It seems like there are no chances, ten to twenty percent. Let’s hope that at least someone will read this. Here’s the list of personnel from the other sections, who are now in the ninth and will attempt to get out. Regards to everybody, no need to be desperate. Kolesnikov.”

    Arab on hyvin vieraanvaraisia ​​mies. Kun tapaat Saharan autiomaahan pojan, hän viihdyttää fantastinen. Yöllä, kun kuu paistaa, tähdet loistaa, ja hänen Fatima on kaukana, Youssuf tuntuu hyvin yksinäinen. Sitten hän makaa kuin hänen suosikki kameli. Johtopäätös: arabi on nöyrä ja rakastaa luontoa.

    I heard this was inspired by a submarine that was actually stuck under the ocean for six days. Chilling to think of that while listening to this.
