(Some say prayers, I say mine)

We serve an old moan in a dry season
A lighthouse keeper in
The desert sun
Dreamers of sleepers
And white treason
We dream of rain and the
History of the gun
There's a lighthouse in the
Middle of Prussia
A white house in a red square
I'm living in films for
The sake of Russia
A Kino Runner for the DDR
And the fifty-two daughters
Of the revolution
Turn the gold to chrome
Gift... nothing to lose
Stuck inside of Memphis
With the mobile home
Mother Russia
Mother Russia
Mother Russia rain down down down
Mother Russia
Mother Russia
Mother Russia rain down

(Andrew Eldritch, 1988)
