Where in hell can you go
Far from the things that you know
Far from the sprawl of concrete
That keeps crawling it's way
About a thousand miles a day

Take one last look behind
Commit this to memory and mind
Don't miss this wasteland
This terrible place
When you leave
Keep your heart off of your sleeve

Motherland
Cradle me, close my eyes
Lullaby me to sleep
Keep me safe, lie with me
Stay beside me, don't go
Don't you go

Oh, my five & dime queen
Tell me what have you seen
The lust and the avarice
The bottomless, the cavernous greed
Is that what you see?

Oh, Motherland
Cradle me, close my eyes
Lullaby me to sleep
Keep me safe, lie with me
Stay beside me, don't go

It's your happiness I want most of all
And for that I'd do anything at all
Oh, mercy me
If you want the best of it
Or the most of it all
If there's anything I can do at all

Now come on, shot gun bride
What makes me envy your life
Faceless, nameless, innocent
Blameless and free
What's it like to be?

Oh, Motherland
Cradle me, close my eyes
Lullaby me to sleep
Keep me safe, lie with me
Stay beside me, don't go
Don't go
