This one is more adorable because of the broken English, yet it is just as powerful. It's Time to Run Away is political for the final stanza and the chorus, which indicates that contrary to what the song's first two stanzas imply, no, things are not so swell in the good 'ol USS of R.
Although it isn't overly political, the message is rooted in politics. That instead of getting everyone all worked up over a "common good" or a "common idea", and lighting one big fire, it's best to leave people be for the winter. That instead of burning all your firewood, you should save it. Don't lie and swindle, because when you use a lie to convince people something's for their own good, it almost always isn't.
This is the most political song I've translated, and honestly, the comments show something for it as-well. The song is about a woman who either hates the USSR, is ignorant and hates the USSR, or is just ignorant and doesn't like the USSR. Either way, she wanted to pull a Pora Bezhat' and get outta dodge, although her choices seem to not help her in the slightest
This is another political with a strong message. We're chained by one chain, related by one chain. This idea is reminiscent to Soviet ideology and this is only exacerbated by other metaphors and idioms and metaphors. Although I prefer Makarevich's 2013 remixed that is more metal, this song caputures a depressing perspective that I think the band wanted.
This Train's on Fire is a very powerful song that makes one clever reference to the cold war in one fail swoop. Yes, this song is about the Cold War. The metaphor is that the train is society, humanity, and we're barreling down the tracks. We're not stopping, and we're afraid that we've got one final option. However, the song says that we can stop, that we don't have to resort to the final option, but we must make amends with ourselves instead of make the rash decision to end it all.
Ah what list of political songs is complete without this masterpiece? This song is special to me because if it wasn't for my high school French teacher I'd never get into Russian or French music, so no Vladimir. This song is powerful, a man doesn't want to go to war, and so he tells his president that he's a crook for deserting but he would rather be a deserter than a dead man.
