ALL THE BLANK FACES (THIS MAMUSHKA)

 
 

This country was founded on pillage and rape 
From a twist of destiny grew a civilized grace 
We bit off a bat’s head, we gritted our teeth 
Now the battle is over, we can go to sleep 

And I’m still here, lost between the ages 
Of an ancient culture, and all the blank faces 
The modern man separates me from nature 
In all the cities I’ve been to, I’ve felt like a stranger 

Now I bleed ink, I wear my hair 
With the utmost pride for all that I revere 
My war is myself, in this rotten place 
I want to feel something 
If it is only hate 

And I’m still here, lost between the ages
Of an ancient culture, and all the blank faces
The modern man separates me from nature
In all the cities I’ve been to, I’ve felt like a stranger

All the wishes for equality 
The northern light still shines for me 
The good lie that never ends is dead 
The sun that never sets, sets directly on my head

All the wishes for equality 
The northern light still shines for me 
The good lie that never ends is dead 
The sun that never sets, sets directly on my head

And I’m still here, lost between the ages
Of an ancient culture, and all the blank faces
The modern man separates me from nature
In all the cities I’ve been to, I’ve felt like a stranger

And I’m still here, lost between the ages
Of an ancient culture, and all the blank faces
The modern man separated from nature
All the cities I’ve been to, I’ve felt like a stranger

And I’m still here, lost between the ages
Of an ancient culture, and all the blank faces
The modern man separated from nature
In all the cities I’ve been to, I’ve felt like a stranger
