"Radio Kaliningrad" as written by and Alexei Perry Dan Boeckner....
You are my only mansion
My home on the other side
On the other side

There's no one ask you about
Your voice on a broken wire
You had to wait outside
You had to wait outside

Radio Kaliningrad, maybe you were becoming mine
Radio Kaliningrad, static on a broken wire

The filth so isolated
On this 1955
I had to wait outside

We never separated
Both in the capital
You know I kept the love
Like a fire.
We never said goodbye
We never said goodbye

Radio Kaliningrad, maybe you were becoming mine
Radio Kaliningrad, static on a broken wire

I know you love me, baby
I know the horror is just a little trial
You can wait outside

We all are just waiting for
The futuristic radio slipping
In the hallway in the sky.
You can wait outside
You can wait outside

Oh!
Radio Kaliningrad, maybe you were becoming mine
Radio Kaliningrad, static on a broken wire

My home is you
My home on the other side
My home is you
My home on the other side
On the other side

Wake up the radio in the sky
Wake up the radio, we never said goodbye
We never said goodbye, bye, bye, bye

    Lyric CorrectionHere are the actual lyrics of this song according to the Wolf Parade/Handsome Furs website, submitted by them.

    Radio Kaliningrad

    You are my own invention
    My home on the other side
    on the other side

    There’s no one asking after
    your voice on the broken wire
    You have to wait outside
    You have to wait outside

    Radio Kaliningrad, baby you coming in fine
    Radio Kaliningrad, static on a broken wire

    I felt so isolated
    Bombtest, 1955
    I had to wait outside

    We never separated, bombs in the capitol
    you know it kept our love like a fight
    We never said goodbye
    We never said GOODBYE

    Radio Kaliningrad, baby you were coming in fine
    Radio Kaliningrad, static on a broken wire

    I know you love it baby
    I know the heart is just a little tired
    You can wait outside

    Well, I just waited for it
    The future is uranium that’s sleeping under all red sky
    You can wait outside
    You can wait outside

    Radio Kaliningrad, baby you were coming in fine
    Radio Kaliningrad, static on a broken wire

    My home, it’s you
    My home on the other side

    My home, it’s you
    My home on the other side
    on the other side

    We got the radio and the sky
    We got the radio, we never said goodbye
    We never said goodbye bye bye bye

    General CommentThank god someone bothered to look on the band's website. I was gonna say: who the hell is writing these lyrics?; You are my only mansion?; the filth so isolated? Does it not occur to these genius " lyric interpreters" that those lyrics make no fucking sense??? Open your ears for Christ's sake. Thank you freckleface81!!!
