Biography

TROLITE are a Bulgarian psychedelic blues-rock band formed in 1995 by four friends from childhood and university who dreamed of playing rock music. From the beginning the formation started making cover versions of The Doors, Cream, Eric Clapton, Janis Joplin, Creedence Clearwater Revival, J.J.Cale. One year after the band started creating its own songs. By the year 2000 "TROLITE" have performed in many live shows and few festivals in Bulgaria managing to record two demo albums which were never released for the public.
The next few years the band kept quiet till 2003 when members of the band got together again and started composing new songs but having very few acts during the next years. At 2008 the members took decision to make their own studio which became a fact in the beginning of 2009. After this the formation concentrated on rehearsal and recording of already created material meanwhile performing in live shows around the rock clubs in the country. As a result of this work the first official EP was released on September 2010 called "Drummers in the sky" which consisted of five originally composed songs.
Each one and altogether band members were inspired by the music of Led Zeppelin, The Doors, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Cream, David Bowie, Rolling Stones, Deep Purple, King Crimson, Queen, ACDC, B.B.King and many other original artists.
Members from the first union of "TROLITE" stayed constant during the years with temporary replacement of the drummer and base guitarist within different periods.

Lyrics

Goodbye my friend

Written By: Trolite

In the mornings, I could see your faces
Frightened men and some were children
I could see the question in your eyes
Am I leading you to death?

No, I'm leading you to immortality
History will keep this burning alive
Generations will tell stories
How we died but kept our pride

Goodbye my friend
This is the end
And I'll keep on fighting and searching the way that's for me and for you

And the graves of those who fell, were honored
And gift of hope, that good will prevail, was so strong and real
That some claimed, this sacrifice was paid off thousand times
But how much could a man's life cost?!

Soon news from the battlefield came over -
Enemy's forces have gathered new armies, stronger guns and were slowly approaching
The end was near and salvation came from nowhere
Some couldn't believe or just leave their homes and met their end there in a wasted battle

Most ran out to the mountains, but were hunted out one by one
Women and children – a whole world deliberately wept out
From the face of the Earth
And I'll keep on fighting and searching the way that's for me and for you

I'm the last one of a broken world
Glorious people of pride and joy we were
Memories of us will be forgotten
With the last stone on my grave

Never cross the line

Written By: Trolite

We were walking across this world
Me and my friend July Mehandjiiski
We had never crossed the line
We were always fine and nice
Boy, why did you look at her
Why did you trust a stranger?
Hey don't go don't go this way
You may cross the line
Without me

Never cross the line
Never cross the line

Friends will never be the same
Time is changing
Friends will never be the same
Never be the same

So we went on with our life
But you were somehow distant
It was cold and dark around you
You were like an angel from a dream
You just waved me farewell and stepped away
And I was wandering shall I?
You just waved me farewell and stepped away
Shall I cross the line?

Shall I cross the line?
Shall I cross the line?

Friends will never be the same
Time is changing
Friends will never be the same
Never be the same

We were crossing the streets together
But never crossed the morning light
I have never stopped you doing things
can you carry on without me?
You can smile about it, I cannot know
I can hear your voice now somewhere
Beyond, beyond the changing line
Carry on without me

Carry on without me
Carry on without me

Friends will never be the same
Time is changing
Friends will never be the same
Never be the same

Wake up

Written By: Trolite

Where all the headaches are coming from?
Why do the clouds pour out their rain?
How often do you feel THE Love?
And what is this that stops my heart?

Wake up, wake up, you member of life
Perform your stupid games again
Clean teeth, eat bread, communicate at lunch
Sleep well and dreamless, you machine!

And if I close my eyes and die
Wouldn't be better for us all?!
At least a memory should stay
In my slowly dying eyes

Drummers in the sky

Written By: Trolite

In the mornings you could see them fly
These strange UFOs in the blue
They seemed quite strange
Like they have drums around their necks
Some claimed they came from Sirius
Others from the Milky way
But soon their cause was clarified
They came to harvest what they've sown

You could see their drums
Hanging on their necks

Oo AA, they are coming again
Going Away
Waiting us to grow up

Alexander said ”Well isn't that strange,
There are drummers in the sky?!”
So he went out and played the guitar
And we did join him with the band
And the drummers in the sky
Started playing their drums
Well, that was an awesome event
The greatest live show ever

With the drummers in the sky
Crazy drummers in the sky

Oo AA, they are coming again
Going Away
Waiting us to grow up

Listen to the guitars

Written By: Trolite

Listen to the guitars blown to you by wind of time
Listen to the hippies in the park
And rock and roll !

Listen to the melodies of old, forgotten songs
Listen to the programs on the radio
And rock and roll !

Watch the ancient videos on television screen
See the guys with banging heads
And rock and roll !

Where did the old days go?
Now the world's so small !
Where is our band?

I will scramble on
Searching for the stone
Rolling down my heart

Show me all your photographs with long and curly hair
Tell me all your memories of fire
And rock and roll !

Get up with your guitar and step with me on stage
Play your solo – crash my heart
With Rock and roll !

Call the guys and get the band together for a jam
Play like hell again your favorite
Rock and roll !

Watch how sun is rising
Feel the breeze while riding
On the TV set

Watch me bang my hair
You will breathe my air
Trough the TV set

Dancing on the street

Written By: TROLITE

So, I was walking down a street
There was a girl - she gave a smile to me
We were dancing among the running people
Blessed by the Queen of Universe!

Oooh, I was walking
Oooh, we were dancing
Oooh, among the running people
Blessed by the Queen of Universe!

Milky way

Written By: TROLITE

Verse:
She was down fro Jupiter
I was up from Mars
We met at the space cruise
And we fell in love

Although she had three legs
And I had four heads
She said it was for good
And jumped in bed

Chorus:
There are no boundaries to the love
Nor the distance, nor the time
You can have a girl from the Milky Way
You just have to be in love

La la la, la la la, la la la la la
La la la, la la la, la la la la
La la la, la la la, la la la la la
La la la, la la la, la la la la

Verse:
She came to the Earth to live
And we bought a farm
But her main meal was the soil
So we had no farm!

We went to the discotheque
And she went to the bar
Police took her quick away
Cause she fought fire

Chorus:
There are no boundaries to the love
Nor the distance, nor the time
You can have a girl from the Milky Way
You just have to be in love

La la la, la la la, la la la la la
La la la, la la la, la la la la
La la la, la la la, la la la la la
La la la, la la la, la la la la
