(Futurists vote number one.)

Drive out to the woods
And don't stop until you reach a glade
By a frozen lake
Run for your life
The body's cold and it's rotting fast
In the boot of the car

Whatever you do, don't look behind you
Whatever you do, just run and run
St. Petersburg
Is a hundred miles away on a clear day
Russian [?] black out the sun

At the Stray Dog Cafe
We owe you nothing, just a slap in the face
Of public taste
Futurists vote number one
We give you cosmonauts in Luna Park
And a war against the sun

Kiev, Kharkov and Odessa
This show will run and run
St. Petersburg
Is a hundred miles away on a clear day
Russians futurists black out the sun

One day we'll make history
And they'll thank us for all we have done
When we were cruel and young
Russian futurists black out the sun

At the Stray Dog Cafe
We owe you nothing, just a slap in the face
Of public taste
Futurists vote number one
We give you cosmonauts in Luna Park
And a war against the sun

Kiev, Kharkov and Odessa
This one will run and run
All the peasants say
[?] is twenty years away
Russian futurists black out the sun

    Song MeaningThe Russian Futurist movement (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/…) first emerged in the early 20th century with the publication of a futurist manifesto, "A Slap in the Face of Public Taste" (391.org/manifestos/…). The movement's core group was located in Moscow, but other groups soon formed in St. Petersburg, Kiev, Khakov and Odessa. In 1913, a Russian Futurist opera called "Victory Over the Sun", in which the sun is torn out of the sky and locked inside a concrete box, premiered in Luna Park, St. Petersburg. You can read more about it here: ce-review.org/99/3/…
