Lyrics:

A Long Cold Road

Verse 1

So you say you want to hear
About the time we almost died
Happened quite a lot
So you’ll have to specify

First we were serfs
Working an unforgiving land
Under the czars
Beneath their iron hand

Chorus

It’s been a long road
But somehow got us here
Food and friends at the table
So raise a glass and cheer

A long, cold road
But that was yesterday
So drink the night away
And live to die another day

Verse 2

Then came revolution
Among the working class
World wars a cold war
And famine in our past

Burned the ground beneath us
Just so it would stay ours
Feared the rockets falling

Chorus

It’s been a long road
But somehow got us here
Food and friends at the table
So raise a glass and cheer

A long, cold road
But that was yesterday
So drink the night away
And live to die another day

Bridge/Mini Verse

The Mongols almost had us
The Germans they came close
But we've braved winters harder
Than any of our foes

Chorus

It’s been a long road
But somehow got us here
Food and friends at the table
So raise a glass and cheer

A long, cold road
But that was yesterday
So drink the night away
And live to die another day
[Exit]
