"Zina-Marina" as written by Eliot Ferguson, Eugene Hutz, Oren Kaplan, Yuri Lemeshev, Sergey Ryabstev and Thomas Gobena....
It is easier to see, evil as entity
Not as condition inside you and me
I did not invent it, I'm just in charge of it
Simple businessman with simple practical plan

So do you wanna be a model, yeah?
All you got to do is show up, wow
We'll be leaving soon for the breaking ground
For there will forever be slavery
There forever be cruelty

There forever be wretched of earth
Crawlin' up round driven by last semen drop
Factory that makes you, they say, it never stops
Factory that makes them, I know, it never stops

So do you wanna be a model, yeah?
All you got to do is show up, wow
We'll be leaving soon for the breaking ground
For there will forever be slavery
There forever be cruelty

In this game they'll always be on the top
And it's up for you to learn or not

Eh, padavai-ka djadka lodku, babenok zagruzgai-ka
Oi, davai davai, trimai denga denga
Oh, da kino-cameru da zgurnalistik nu ka dai-ka
Eh, po chernu morju, da na Dubai, Dubai

    My InterpretationThe main thrust of the lyrics of this track refers to the ubiquitous human/sex trafficing as has been taking place after the collapse of the former Eastern Block. In interviews, Eugene Huetz laments the disappearance of all the beautiful young women from where he grew up and actually refers to specifically this track where he expertly depicts the sex-slave recruitment dynamics.
    The teaser lines about being a model and minimal work it would entail (only having to show up) immediately followed by the unsubtle reference to 'Breaking ground' which in some parts is slang for 'popping one's cherry' or more to the point; losing one's virginity.
    Mentioning cruelty and Stanza:

    There forever be wretched of Earth : You're no exception.Things have always been this way
    Crawlin' up round driven by last semen drop : No let-up until the last "John" is done.
    Factory that makes you, they say, it never stops : The Factory(=Organization) allows no escape
    Factory that makes them, I know, will never stop..: The factory can only continue because you do. (and YOU WILL!)

    contains all aspects of forced prostion.
    At least, that's how I read it.

    General Commenti'll try translate it though these lines don't have very important meaning.

    hey! give us, old man, a ship and girls
    ohohohoh take money
    ohohoh what a shame
    oh let's sail in the black sea to dubai dubai
    oh oh take it all on camera and bring some journalists with you
    hit somebody's head with the camera
    or give it to somebody else

    :)))

    General CommentWhen they do this live hutz was (for the last two shows I've been to) wearing a pink wig and high heels it's funny as hell, the shows get so crazy and this song is a great way to amp the atmosphere and be weird... normally hearing this within the first half hour.

    General CommentThey need to write a song about Russian mail-order brides. I know a number of sexist pig American men who, after being dumped by their American wives, got themselves Russian mail-order brides. One was the ex- of a good friend of mine (thinking that she wanted to find a new husband, he suggested that she read a book called "The Subservient Wife").

    General CommentThe third verse (ending with "Factory that makes them, I know, it never stops") makes me think the song also refers to making porn movies, because in the society nowadays men are encouraged to perceive girls as sexual objects; therefore the quotation above.
