(NOTE: THIS ENTIRE VIDEO IS IN SLO-MO)

How did we ever go this far?

The same thing is done to Princess Lena, who is knelt beside Princess Yulia.

LYRICS

You touch my hand and start the car

The Flag: a combination of magenta and maroon, the two royal weapons across one another.

LYRICS

Are we in space?

Do we belong?

Someplace where no one calls it wrong

The two queens look to each other, then to their royal court.

LYRICS

And like the stars

we burn away the miles

Who are cheering…

LYRICS

Ya zvezda, ty zvezda. 
Nas prikazano szhech. 
Kto-to sdal I dostal 
Adresa nashikh vstrech. 
Potolki po glazam 
I nikto ne naidet. 
Soskol’znut golosa, 
I slomaetsya led. 
I nich’ya bez klyucha, 
I mogila postel’. 
I pora vyklychat’, 
I oni na khvoste. 
Ulybnis’, razvyazhi, 
Zanaves’ zerkala 
Razorvi, I skazhi. 
Umerla, umerla.

LYRICS

Zamykai I lizhi 
Stanovis’ nikakoi. 
I ruka ne drozhit 
Vse v poryadke s rukoi. 
Mozhno mstit’. 
Dvajdi dva 
Na taksi I sosi 
A prostit’ nikogda, 
Nikogda ne prosi. 
Khorosho, khorosho. 
Ya pridumala mest’. 
Poroshok vse chto est’. 
Umnozhayu na shest’. 
Ne zvoni, ne zvoni. 
Ya ustala, ya ustala. 
Ya tebya ne khochu 
Ty menya za***la

Bloodied and battered the two princesses stay locked on one another as they approach each other.

Transfixed, they kiss… (Camera rotating around them with continuous 360’s)

How did we ever get this far?

It shouldn’t have to be this hard

Now for the first time in my life

I’m flying

Are we in love?

Do we deserve

to bear the shame

of this whole world?

As camera falls through the see-through silk drapes Queen Yulia lays Queen Lena on her back and starts to kiss her…

And like the night

we camouflage denial

You touch my hand and start the car

And for the first time in my life

I’m flying

Their two queens, who stand on the terrace of their palace, arms raised and hands together.

In their other hand they each hold the other’s weapon, which they bring up and join together.

LYRICS

Are we in love?

Do we deserve

to bear the shame

of this whole world?

They slowly retreat back into their quarters…

LYRICS

The doors close on the BEEP.

Slow fall back on cheering crowd until…
