You always knew that this would come
The ticking clock, the beating drum
The layman’s heart’s a loaded gun

We’ll build a fort in your back yard
with broken sticks and yellow yarn
The local kids won’t get too far

Baby it’s just gets so hard
when you live in the USSR
And people they just make believe
that heaven is far from their hearts
And even through we’re free
from the evil communist party
my mother she still makes believe
that heaven is far from her heart.

How silly waiting for a cause
You pick, you're sad and fling your mud
The dirty hands they teach no-one
And I can see it in his grin
The layman’s heart that beats within
The blue-jean man will never win

Baby, it just gets so hard
when you live in the USSR
and people they just make believe
that heaven is far from their hearts
And even though we’re free
from the evil communist party
my mother she still makes believe
That heaven is far from her heart

repeat
