This is the only song single which has been written both by Yeldos Zarpullayev and the former bass player Yerlan Akhmetov. One year has passed since their debut "All Holes Are Black" album 2016 release and this song sounds like a prelude to the second album of Buttness.

Music: Yeldos Zarpullayev & Yerlan Akhmetov
Lyrics: Yeldos Zarpullayev

The years flow away

When the river changes its way
It gets a sea anyway
If a stone blocks its way
The river does in its play

Nothing stops
No one could even state
The years flow away **

If the wind
Blows from the east
What could ever be missed?

If the storm
Starts in the west
Who could say what is best?

Nothing stops
No one could even state
The years flow away **

Yeldos Zarpullayev (guitar and vocal)
Yerlan Akhmetov (bass)
