Punk Prayer by Pussy Riot


Virgin Mary, Mother of God, banish Putin

Banish Putin, Banish Putin

Congregations genuflect

Black robes brag, golden epaulettes

Freedom’s phantoms gone to heaven

Gay Pride’s chained and in detention

The head of the KGB, their chief saint

Leads protesters to prison under escort

Don’t upset His Saintship ladies

Stick to making love and babies

Crap crap, this holiness crap!

Crap, crap, this holiness crap!

Virgin Mary, Mother of God

Become a feminist, we pray thee

Become a feminist, we pray thee

Bless our festering bastard-boss

Let black cars parade the Cross

The Missionaries in class for cash

Meet him there, and pay his stash

Patriarch Gundyaev believes in Putin

Better believe in God, you vermin!

Fight for rights, forget the rite

Join our protest, Holy Virgin

Virgin Mary, Mother of God, Banish Putin

Virgin Mary, Mother of God, Banish Putin

This song is full of rage. But I don't feel like it is worthless. Some people live in such oppressive culture that the only way to express their emotion and instigate change is through art

Yes I agree wholeheartedly. These ladies lost their freedom over this song. I think they were sentenced to ten years.
