Post-soviet people, apparently, have some sort of trauma from previous pseudo-communist regime and therefore they are more keen on expressing themselves with some bling-bling things they cannot actually afford. This is a showing off just for its own sake to get some sort of status in society. “Too many people are buying things they can’t afford, with money that they don’t have… to impress people that they don’t like!” (quote of W. Smith)


Postpadomju cilvēks

Tu staipi krāniņu, postpadomj’ cilvēk
Bailēs par statusu

Tu baidies būt niecīgs, bet tāds ar’ tu esi
Un godīgi sakot, visiem tu besī

Prāts un apziņa vairāk netraucē
Blonda parūka žurka padusē
Prāts un apziņa vairāk netraucē

Jauns laikmets, jaunas vērtības
Miesa pārdota, miesa nopirkta
Jauns laikmets, jaunas vērtības

Post-soviet human

You brag about yourself, post-soviet human
Being afraid about your status

You are afraid of being small, but you are already
And honestly, you piss others off

Mind and consciousness interferes no more
Blonde wig, a rat in lap
Mind and consciousness interferes no more

New era, new values
Body is sold, body is bought
New era, new values
