lyrics

Dear mother I write you
Your campaigning hero
While drowning my sorrows
Afield, in the west

I hope that this finds you
In good health and smiling
All things in good measure
You always knew best

The men don’t respect me
Though I lay them in laurels
They’re sated in killing -
The devil’s repast

But I drive them onward
They advance in reluctance
And the road signs salute me
When I stagger past

What is the measure of a man?
Is it his heart, or in his hands?
I can’t remember anymore
Please let me know
In your reply

I’ve still been pious
Devout in my prayers
The hymnal devotion
I show in all things

I sing to my rifle
My friend for all seasons
“You served me in winter
Now do so in spring.”

I’ve come to my purpose
This hateful confession
I was made for this madness
So here I must be

But I’ll be remembered
A man in two movement
A prince on the Volga
A god on the Seim

Oh mother, I’m certain
I can’t come home
Be it heaven’s designing
Or hell’s blackened scheme

There is no escaping
I’ve tasted tomorrow
And there’s no room in Russia
For nightmares like me
