Yuliy Burkin's a frequent Lukyanenko co-writer, and a few related songs appear on Lukyanenko's website. Actually, so does Burkin himself -- in a guest appearance as a character in the sequel to Lukyanenko's cyberspace masterpiece, Labyrinth of Mirrors You can download many of Burkin's songs from his own webpage, too.

Vihbor (The Choice)
Lyrics and Music: Yuliy Burkin
Album: Nochnoi Dozor, 2004
Translation: Maureen S. O'Brien, 8/17/05

Between the Light and Dark
Your path and mine is marked;
And there's nobody with us,
No advice and no order....

CH:
But you have to know
You have to make your own choice.

From time immemorial
We've been in a Patrol.
Who's in Night, who's in Day,
Each ought to have -- their own....

CH:

He fell, his pain not hiding,
Into the void of unbeing --
He who'd looked for truth here
Gazing into false mirrors.

CH:

What's good? What's bad? To discern
We don't have the luck to learn.
But in play, in mirages gone through
Life is reset anew...

CH:

Between the Light and the Dark
Your path and mine is marked.
Between the Light and the Dark
Our path on Earth is marked....
