To be fated to go east (austrumi) meant to go fight against Latvia's age-old mortal enemy, Russia.

Man dzīvē laimes nav
Tā teica zīlniece
Tik sāpes, asaras, un sķiršanās
Vairs tālāk nestsāsti
Par manu nākotni
Jo zinu ka mans ceļš ir austrumi.
 
Man dzīvē laimes nav
Tā teica zīlniece
Tik sāpes, asaras un šķiršanās
Vairs tālāk nestāsti
Par manu nākotni
Jo zinu ka mans ceļš ir austrumi.
 
No luck in my life,
So said the fortune teller.
Only pain, tears, and goodbyes.
Stop! Tell me no more
Of my future.
I already know. My road lies east.
