Lyrics (from the Soviet Kitsch liner notes):
They made a statue of us
and put it on a mountain top
now tourists come and stare at us
blow bubbles with their gum
take photographs have fun
have fun

they'll name a city after us
and later say it's all our fault
then they'll give us a talking to
then they'll give us a talking to
cause they've got years of experience

We're living in a den of thieves
rummaging for answers in the pages
We're living in a den of thieves
and it's contagious
and it's contagious

We wear our scarves just like a noose
but not cause we want eternal sleep
and though our parts are slightly used
new ones are slave labor you can keep

We're living in a den of thieves
rummaging for answers in the pages
We're living in a den of thieves
and it's contagious
and it's contagious
it's contagious
it's contagious

They made a statue of us
they made a statue of us
the tourists come and stare at us
the sculptor's mama sends regards
They made a statue of us
they made a statue of us
Our noses have begun to rust

We're living in a den of thieves rummaging for answers in the pages
We're living in a den of thieves
and it's contagious
and it's contagious
it's contagious, it's contagious
it's contagious
it's contagious
it's contagious
it's contagious
