A few moments ago, Bulgarian broadcaster BNT has officially premiered “Intention”, the song that Intelligent Music Project band will perform in Turin at Eurovision 2022. The entry was presented in the morning show called “The day begins with Georgi Lyubenov”.
The rock group Intelligent Music Project was selected internally by BNT on November 25. The band’s participation was announced in a special press conference given by the Bulgarian Television CEO, Emil Koshlukov, and Dr. Milen Vrabevski, creator of the Intelligent Music Project.
You can take a listen to “Intention” now!:
And I can move on from here
How simple, life goes on
Humble, that’s how I feel
Sparking hot flames, holding on
Younger days run so clear
Through my mind, replaying my crime
Tearing me up, spreading fear
Obsession in my own time
What life’s taken away, I’m not missing
Will I sit back and sigh?
A thunder of thoughts, I’m dismissing
Too scared to even try
And in time I’ve always known
I’m never in the safety zone
I took the fight, but was I right?
They were sending me to war
My intention is strong and real
Only power steels my will
The illusion of safety’s surrеal
Don’t let it go for the kill
I don’t want to take on thе pain
So, I go seek inner signs, or a calling
The more freedom I gain
The less real life I’m recalling
