  • Farewell martyr
    Whipping flame
    We will put up our red flags
    And cry

    In bright-coloured plastic chairs
    Beneath the towers catching the higher airs
    Then light up bonfires for you

    Oh, cross dressers
    Cross dressers of these terrible roads
    Your love is great

    And the nasalar
    In his beaten-up old car
    Is taking the particles back home again

    Soon you'll be dancing (Soon you will be dancing)
    Where the made-up gods have set their clocks on you
    And the rockets we let off
    Are hidden now beneath the snow
