As a guest, I behave as a guest should, I respect the host - I leave when they ask. I'm not tolerant, although I don't seethe with anger, But this doesn't seem like Russia at all. It's offensive to be occupied on your own land, It's offensive - I say "I'm Russian," and they call me a Nazi. And I don't give a fuck, keep chatting on your computers, It doesn't matter to you what country you're in or whose laws you have to live by. My Orthodox Rus', so hospitable, Your holy land is being trampled by the hooves of beasts. Reforms, crises, and wars— but you are strong, You will sustain the people with your determination, unlike the visionaries who try to Accept a different system of values. In exchange for these ideals we'll give up our freedom. If they come in peace, we'll give them bread and water, But to those who come with a sword - you know what to do. Remember: you're a guest, you're not at home. How long must we endure this? How much longer? You don't like to hear talk like this, But don't touch the monastery with your regulations. Russian visitors come to the capital, to the Kursky Station. First they started selling their food, Now in the mornings, with their unintelligible accents, They harass us to buy their cheap phones. On the trains, tons of gypsies with no morals Offer to tell your fortune, picking your pocket. They take your valuables, phones, and gold, All the way from Reutova to Serp to Molot, I saw all this mayhem with my own eyes, But nobody even tried to say anything to them. And supposedly we're brothers, one for all and all for one, But in action their gut instinct somehow freezes up. This isn't Moscow at all - it's some sort of international center, Everybody comes here as soon as they get a passport. It doesn't matter where they work and for how much, What matters is how many native citizens you'll find downtown.
