Russia & the West: Breaking Up to Take a Break


Child

Ride the snake, he’s old, and his skin is cold
The west is the best, the west is the best
Get here, and we’ll do the rest
The blue bus is callin’ us, the blue bus is callin’ us
Driver, where you taken us

The Doors “The End”.

Russia and the West need a peaceful, civilized divorce. It’s a break-up due to ‘irreconcilable differences‘. There’s no use in pointing the finger at each other: “it takes two to tango”.

History didn’t end. It repeats itself. It’s just the end of the Russian idealization of the West. The latter is also disappointed in Russia. Break-up is needed for both parties. They should take a break. Seriously.

The Greenhornes feat. Holly Golightly “There Is an End”.

Words disappear,
Words weren’t so clear,
Only echos passing through the night.

The lines on my face,
Your fingers once traced,
Fading reflection of what was.

Thoughts re-arrange,
Familar now strange,
All my skin is drifting on the wind.

Spring brings the rain,
With winter comes pain,
Every season has an end.

I try to see through the disguise,
But the clouds were there,
Blocking out the sun (the sun).

Thoughts re-arrange,
Familar now strange,
All my skin is drifting on the wind.

Spring brings the rain,
With winter comes pain,
Every season has an end.

There’s an end,
There’s an end,
There’s an end,
There’s an end,
There’s an end.
