So Pussy Riot Is Actually A Band Now

buzzfeed.com — Be humble, learn to obey, don't worry about material stuff Be loyal to those in power, cause power is a gift from God, son I love Russia I'm a patriot Live like a saint with holy simplicity Don't eat too much, be humble when you shop And soon you'll be all set, First a deputy, then a district attorney, Joined the communist party, Made friends with the oligarchs I'm a patriot Straight out of Khabarovsk And I choose to do business here, not in Europe, where they got gay people, But in mother Russia, where I live.
