Lyrics

Russian Ship
There's a Russian ship out lost at sea in changing times
There's a lonely tide that brings to mind the days gone by
And the simple fact that leads me back is that no one cared
There's a Russian ship out lost at sea and I feel scared
And look now, look there's another book, and look now, there's a story
That in Kiev they were tearing down statues
Tzaralena where's our world gone, Tzaralena where's our home gone
Mother Russia's out there sinking, And the Western world is thinking
That we're better off than what we were
And the Russian ship that's lost at sea is fading fast
Cos the man who tried the changing winds, has burst its mast
As I think about what's left and how it's come to this
And there's shame inside cos I denied the days I miss
And look, now look there's another book, and look now there's a person, says he's Russian
And he once defied Lenin
Tzaralena where's our world gone, Tzaralena where's our home gone
Mother Russia's out there sinking, and the Western world is thinking
That we're better off than what we were
Do you think we'll ever be happy here
In a come what may
Do you think we'll ever be satisfied
Living life this way?
Tzaralena where's our world gone, Tzaralena where's our home gone
Mother Russia's out there sinking, and the Western world is thinking
That we're better off than what we were
