The song touches on ideas surrounding the plethora of misinterpretations abundant in Western countries with regards to former Soviet countries and citizens and vice versa. Key themes are ethnocentric ideals, Western imperialist media contrary to. Post Soviet propaganda elements and the unavoidable reality that humans are generally highly characteristic of their own cultural inheritance.
Post soviet show me the world from your eyes
Before I'm told how to feel, no will to dream, limiting.
Post soviet, can you feel what it's like to be full from
Alcohol, all means of love, from sex and drugs, and media.
Because we see all the world how we want and
Learn based on where we're from,
The moments, the living, resounding vibrations.
In the time when you're feeling all lit up,
In the time when you're feeling all tripped up,
In the time when you're feeling all fucked up,
Just leave it downtown.
One of the oldest cultures around,
With a loaded gun in mind.
There coming to listen, my light in
The sound of now.
