communist love song



it was well conceived in theory
but it doesn't work in life.

comrade has to wonder
is it ever worth the effort?
well i don't know,
but i've been told
not to hang on to my hope
well I don't but I've been told

and I've been listening all my life


if you're ever less than certain about the world
please don't let the worry make its way into your work
and if you would stick up for me
in the face of
some adversity
know that I would only do the same.


cuz it was well conceived in theory

but it doesn't work in life
and me, I will not write it off
not ever having tried
well i don't know, but i've been told

not to hang on to my hope

well i don't know but i've been told that these are lies
and they get old

so look me in the eyes under expanding winter skies
you'll find a feeling there that never knows the cold
look me in the eyes and the skeptic in me dies
the skeptic is a fool
we are exceptions to the rule


cuz this is our land this is our land
i will cross it holding your hand
from
Kursk to Moscow
we will
not be turned away

this is our land this is our land
i will cross it holding your hand
in crooked streets of petersburg
we are all the same
so if you're ever less than certain about the world
please don't let the worry make its way into your work
and if you would stick up for me in the face of great adversity
know that I would do the same,
know we are the same

if you would stick up for me speak kindly and poetically
you can be my personal ambassador to the world


and if you're ever less than certain
i will be your Iron Curtain
i will be your Berlin Wall
and I will never fall.

-Soltero
