Due to the inability to pull all the bandmembers together to work on the track, this version of the song was recorded only by Dmitry Spirin (vocals) and Igor Rybin (guitars, backing vocals, programming).
In the future, the band Tarakany! is planning to record the track all together, with the band\'s usual sound.

Dmitry Spirin speaks on the song,
“In the fall of 2017, I first came to Krakow, Poland, a city in which tragic events of the World War II had taken place. The events that had formed the basis of Thomas Kinelli\'s novel "Schindler’s Ark" and Steven Spielberg’s film "Schindler’s List". Staying there and watching the movie at the place where they\'d shot it made a huge impression on me. I wrote the phrase "Zheltaya zvezda" (“Yellow Star”) into a text file on my work computer where I store ideas, sketches and topics for possible future songs. I thought that maybe someday in the future I could write a song dedicated to the memory of the victims of the Holocaust, and this phrase could be its title. It so happened that in April 2020 this day came. This track is not only dedicated to the memory of all victims of nazism. It is also a dedication to all those who in times of mortal danger are able to neglect their own interests, comfort, health and even their own lives in order to save others. The one who saves one life saves the whole world”.

Yellow Star
There\'s a yellow star on the chest of mine.
A stamp burning bright on me.
God, please make it so I could close my eyes
And all this will be a dream.

But in this dream
There\'s barking men and barking dogs
There\'s crying kids
With smoke and ashes high above.
There\'s people\'s fear
And there is one who cheated death
And saved the world
By saving just one life.

There\'s a yellow star on the chest of mine.
A sentence of death for me
Some miracle is only what could save me
The sound of a gun slide\'s heard

And in this dream
There\'s barking men and barking dogs
There\'s crying kids
With smoke and ashes high above.
There\'s people\'s fear
And there is one who cheated death
And saved the world
By saving just one life.
