"To China with Love" as written by Bjorn Hans-erik Dixgard and Gustaf Noren....
Get on the train cause I'm tired of you, boy
You can come back when you're dressed in blue
You won't get a penny of using me
I'm gonna send you home and hit you on Sunday

Don't look so small, I'm not bigger than you
But I've got blues enough to smash your bones
I've lit up my life with those matches I've got
From those who stood by me when I was in pain, boy

You're too near me nasty boy-girl
It's pretty bad that you're still around
I'm gonna laugh when you're down and out, boy
I'm gonna laugh when you're on that lonesome ride

Back all the way to China in a police car from Japan, oh yeah
Sitting in the backseat crying
Where's your pride?

Getting my feet all drained in mud,
I'm gonna clean them when I'm done with you
I don't give a damn if your filthy too
I've got enough soup for my whole generation

Your too near me nasty boy-girl.
It's pretty bad that you're round my hood
I'm gonna laugh when you're down and out boy
I'm gonna laugh when you're on that lonesome ride

But all the way to China

Drop your blood in China,
You will get rid of that mighty stone, oh yeah
People told me you were a rich man now
Where's your pride?

    General Commenti think they used to have unfaithful band members...it might be something about that

    General CommentI read somewhere that Björn wrote this song to someone he had a big fight with, some left-political guy. So he wrote it to show that he is the best.

    General Commentdoes the band have problems with leftists? Did they actually ever state something political in their interviews? this reminds me on one of the new songs, "god knows", the lyrics are like "I turned left like she told me to ... I turned right like I said I would" kind of strange

    General CommentThe song is still awesome, despite whatever meaning may be hidden within its cryptic lyrics. :P

    General CommentWell, if you want to tell somebody you do not care about him, you are better, the other one means nothing to you, if you want to tell somebody to shut up because of all the stupid crap he's telling - then, I guess, you write a song like this.

    General Commenti don't think the guy necessarily has to be chinese. this song is saying "go back to china you fucking commie"

    General Comment"My favorite song from Bring ‘em in just because I´ve written it. It´s about a little left-political guy from Falun (a city close to Borlänge). Anyway I had a big fight with him about politics and after that I wanted to put him down I someway. So I wrote this great song since it was the best way to show that he was under me…" - Björn Dixgård

    General CommentOf course, the title is deduced from From Russia with Love, the Bond movie, but i guess they meant it the other waz around; like: the farther you are, the more I love you :)

    Notice how he pronounces Japan (with soft J). Is that so in Sweden (it is in Serbia).
