lyrics

Where in hell can you go
Far from the things that you know?
Far from the sprawl of concrete
That keeps crawling its way
About a thousand miles a day?

Take one last look behind
Commit this to memory and mind
and don't miss this wasteland,
This terrible place, when you leave
Keep your heart off your sleeve

Motherland, cradle me
Close my eyes, lullaby me to sleep
Keep me safe, lie with me
Stay beside me, don't go
Don't you go

Oh my five-and-dime queen
Tell me just what have you seen?
The lust and the avarice?
The bottomless, the cavernous greed?
Is that what you see?

Oh, Motherland, cradle me
Close my eyes, lullaby me to sleep
Keep me safe, lie with me
Stay beside me, don't go
Don't you go

Now come on, shotgun bride,
What makes me envy your life?
Faceless, nameless, innocent, blameless and free -
What's that like to be?

Motherland, cradle me
Close my eyes, lullaby me to sleep
Keep me safe, lie with me
Stay beside me, don't go
Oh, Motherland, cradle me
Close my eyes, lullaby me to sleep
Keep me safe, lie with me
Stay beside me, don't go
No, don't you go.
