01. Light

Music & lyrics by Sascha Konietzko, En Esch, Günter Schulz, Mark Durante, Chris Shepard
Divine inspiration
Total disillusion
Instant consecration
Mind and body fusion
Frontal assault on the seven senses
Orgasmic waste
Eccentric and pretentious

KMFDM doin' it again
A treat for the freaks
Truth or dare
Are you ready for this?
We don't care

Deified dada
Hard but true
Godlike nonsense
Being thrown at you

We keep simple
Tough and outright
Easy to swallow
KMFDM light

KMFDM doin' it again
A treat for the freaks
Truth or dare
Are you ready for this?
We don't care

In a world of deceit, open your eyes
What we do for you so good for you
Don't be afraid and you realize
What you do for me so good for me

One way or another
Now or later
Bow down and worship
The true creator

Musik ist Macht
Eine ausgesprochene Verbindung von schlau und dumm
Geräuschsüchtigen wird unter immensem Druck und
Leidenschaft größte Freude und Vertrauen abgesaugt
Der Helden Riff ist der Froschfresser
Der Rhythmus ein schöner Schwan
Nur die Worte ein Blutegel an Deinem Gehirn
Keiner Macht für Dich mehr

Take a good plunge
Stand out from the masses
Bend over backwards and
Kick some asses

In a world of deceit, open your eyes
What we do for you so good for you
Don't be afraid and you realize
What you do for me so good for me

KMFDM doin' it again
In a world of deceit, open your eyes
Don't be afraid and you realize

Call 1-800
Accept no imitations
KMFDM one world - one nation

What we do for you so good for you
What you do for me so good for me
So good
What we do for you so good for you
What you do for me so good for me
So-so good
For you
For me
So good for you
So good for me
For you


02. A Drug Against War

Music & lyrics by Sascha Konietzko, En Esch, Günter Schulz, Mark Durante, Chris Shepard
Television, religion, social destruction
Sex and drugs, violent seduction
Crystal dawn, ecstatic explosion
Parental advice leads to mental erosion

Stronger than never ever before
KMFDM is a drug against war!

Line after line
Round after round
Empty shells
Fall to the ground

Faster than lightning
High as a kite
Sonic bombardment
Brighter than sunlight

Stronger than never ever before
KMFDM is a drug against war!

K-M-F-D-M

No need for needles
No injection
The substance substitutes
Love and affection

Total sedation
Of longing desire
Cremation of senses
In friendly fire

Stronger than never ever before
KMFDM is a drug against war!
Stronger than never ever before
KMFDM is a drug against war!


03. Blood (Evil-Mix)

Music & lyrics by Sascha Konietzko, En Esch, Günter Schulz, Mark Durante, Chris Shepard
Evil!

What there is to be shrunken is first stretched out
What there is to be weakened is first made strong

What there will be withdrawn is first bestowed
What there will be thrown over is first raised up

Open your senses in a sexual union
There's a face behind the curtain
Be a help and not a burden

Try to wash off blood with blood
Think no evil
Try to wash off blood with blood
Think no evil

Do without doin'
Know without knowin'
Get without gettin'
Go without goin'

Open your senses in a sexual union
There's a face behind the curtain
Be a help and not a burden

Try to wash off blood with blood
Think no evil
Try to wash off blood with blood
Try to wash off blood with blood
Think no evil
Try to wash off blood with blood
Evil!

Jedes Kind was nackend war wurde von dieser Frau am Arm gepackt
Und wurde dann hinter dieser Eisentür - wurde es reingeschubst
Und es wurde nach jedem Kind verriegelt

Da war mir bewusst dass die Kinder vergast sind

The hard and strong will never surrender
The hard and strong will never surrender
The hard and strong will never surrender
The hard and strong will never surrender

Put no head higher than your own
Think no evil
Put no head higher than your own

The hard and strong will never surrender
The hard and strong will never surrender
The hard and strong will never surrender
The hard and strong will never surrender

Try to wash off blood with blood
Think no evil
Try to wash off blood with blood
Try to wash off blood with blood
Think no evil
Try to wash off blood with blood
Evil!
Try to wash off blood with blood
Think no evil
Try to wash off blood with blood
Try to wash off blood with blood
Think no evil
Try to wash off blood with blood
Evil!


04. Lust

Music & lyrics by Sascha Konietzko, En Esch, Günter Schulz, Mark Durante, Chris Shepard
Tief atme durch
Es ist erlaubt zu geniessen
Sei ohne furcht
Werde fast taub

Nicht wahrzunehmen, es zu erleben
Dich begehren heisst Dir vergeben
Liebe ist Raub
Liebe ist Raub

Halt mich fest, halt mich fest
Lass nie los
Eins mit Dir, eins mit Dir
Geh nie fort

Berühre mich
Küsse den himmel hier auf Erden
In mein Geheimnis weih' ich Dich ein
Sinn und Sein
Heilung und Lust
Sei mein Leben
Sei unvernünftig
Baby sei mein
Baby sei mein

Halt mich fest, halt mich fest
Lass nie los
Eins mit Dir, eins mit Dir
Geh nie fort

Lass mich glücklich sein

Touch me
Kiss the sky
Here on earth
Tell me your secret
Baby sei mein

Halt mich fest, halt mich fest
Halt mich fest, halt mich fest

Halt mich fest, halt mich fest
Halt mich fest, halt mich fest
Halt mich fest, halt mich fest
Lass nie los
Eins mit Dir, eins mit Dir
Geh nie fort

Lass mich glücklich sein


05. Glory

Music & lyrics by Sascha Konietzko, En Esch, Günter Schulz, Mark Durante, Chris Shepard
War and slavery - exploitation
The common basis of a western nation
Official version - a falsified story
The truth lies buried in a shroud of glory

Influential people aren't serving time
For being involved in organized crime
But stashed away in beautiful mansions
Guess who provides for their generous pensions

Oppression, ignorance, censorship rule
Education is more than what's taught in school
Forced in a mold, held down by threats
Decisions are made over our heads

But there is a way to refuse and resist
We don't need to be ruled with the iron fist
We are the people, we are strong
Let's make up our minds and prove them wrong

Black man - White man - Yellow man
Black man - White man - Rip the system

Religion and TV, we're under the thumb
Prone to believe 'cause we're already numb

But there is a way to refuse and resist
We don't need to be ruled with the iron fist
We are the people, we are strong
Let's make up our minds and prove them wrong

Black man - White man - Yellow man
Black man - White man - Rip the system


06. Move On

Music & lyrics by Sascha Konietzko, En Esch, Günter Schulz, Mark Durante, Chris Shepard
Reflect in a mirror, revenge is redundant
Resurrect your idols, return to the basics
Realign your thoughts, relocate to zero
Reverse into backward, repossess your soul

Now is the time, reassess your values
Going back to the basics, to powerful needs
At the end of the day, it's an incredible 'Sieg'
We are ready to rock, get in the groove or die or die or die

My inner circles' Helter-Skelter
Echoes loving ecstasy
I know I'll find a way to live
A way for you and me

Stuck in the past
With your blood-sucking sadness
Don't pretend understanding
Understand independence

We got to move on
Move on again
A generation of madness
Is growing again

Right on the edge of a nightmarish war
Roaming the land like never before

Saving yourself now
The trouble of having
The details of ending
Like in the past

Introducing the power
Of surviving the contest
Believe in your own strength
Now is the time

My inner circles' Helter-Skelter
Echoes loving ecstasy
I know I'll find a way to live
A way for you and me

Does it really matter what you believe?
Does it really matter if you belong?
Does it really matter what you believe?
Does it really matter if you belong?
Does it really matter what you believe?
Does it really matter if you belong?


07. No Peace

Music & lyrics by Sascha Konietzko, En Esch, Günter Schulz, Mark Durante, Chris Shepard
Without rhyme without reason
Every day another treason
No peace for the people
In the hands of a fool
How much longer will ignorance rule?

We're getting off
We're getting off
You have to know that we have enough

So, face it, the place is a mess
No, no good don't act like you should
We, we're doomed right from the start
No, no doubt the choice is too hard

We're getting off
We're getting off
You have to know that we have enough

Now it's your turn to fight
Armed and ready, famous and rich
Now it's your turn to fight
Time has come to flip the switch
Now it's your turn to fight
So what do you know, and how does it feel?
Now it's your turn to fight
No peace without justice and that's for real

We deserve a much better life
Control a harmless obsession
We, we're big and never bad
You, your days are numbered you pig

We're getting off
We're getting off
You have to know that we have enough

Now it's your turn to fight
Armed and ready, famous and rich
Now it's your turn to fight
Time has come to flip the switch
Now it's your turn to fight
So what do you know, and how does it feel?
Now it's your turn to fight
No peace without justice and that's for real
Now it's your turn to fight
Your time to fight
Now it's your turn to fight
Now is your time to fight
Now it's your turn to fight
Now is your time to fight
Now it's your turn to fight
Now is your time to fight
No peace without justice and that's for real
No peace without justice and that's for real


08. A Hole In The Wall

Music & lyrics by Sascha Konietzko, En Esch, Günter Schulz, Mark Durante, Chris Shepard
When I have to die then
I want to strangle myself in your black hair
When I have to die then
I want to suffocate between your sweet breasts

When I have to die then
I want to be blinded by your brown eyes
And when I have to die then
I want to cut my veins on your lips

I have not yet learned enough
My hands in chains
The brain, a hole in the wall

When I have to die then
I want to starve in your lap
And when I have to die then
I want to burn in your bed

When I have to die then
I want to drown in your heat
When I have to die then
I want to be poisoned by your blood

I have not yet learned enough
My hands in chains
The brain, a hole in the wall
A hole in the wall

When I have to die then
I want to melt away from your kiss
And then when I am dead
Bury me close to your heart

I have not yet learned enough
My hands in chains
The brain, a hole in the wall
A hole in the wall!


09. Sucks

Music & lyrics by Sascha Konietzko, En Esch, Günter Schulz, Mark Durante, Chris Shepard
We like talking dirty
We smoke and we drink
We're KMFDM and all other bands stink

Our music is sampled, totally fake
It's done by machines, 'coz they don't make mistakes

We don't have no lyrics, our message is nil
We hate all DJs, they're makin' us ill
Whatever we tell you, is meant to be crap
We hate all music, and especially rap

We don't like Michael Jackson
We hate Depeche Mode
We don't care for Madonna
Or Kylie Minogue

KMFDM Sucks!

Our records have stickers, with a warning from Tipper
'Coz they're no good for kids, if we'd get her we'd strip her

KMFDM forward, the ultimate sound
And a message from Satan, if you turn it around

You might think we're stupid, but we're way above it
We don't give a shit, and the kids just love it

We won't sell to a major, for a couple of bucks
No doubt about it, KMFDM sucks!
KMFDM Sucks!
KMFDM Sucks!


10. The Problem

Music & lyrics by Sascha Konietzko, En Esch, Günter Schulz, Mark Durante, Chris Shepard
There was a hearing
The rules were broken by one
Followed by another
The evidence was presented
An overwhelming list of infractions

An overwhelming representation
Of one's maladjustment to the system
The hearing was about him
About his attitude, about his behavior

He is, he represents
No - he embodies the problem
If he is expelled
The problem will go away

Responsibility
Relationship
Mutuality
Our solution

A person with a problem
I believe there's no such thing
As a person with a problem
If there is a problem it's a problem with the system
The system of home and family
Of school and community

He is not in this alone
He is not the problem

A reflection of the system
A mirror image of ourselves and our work

We acknowledge not all kids fit
Our ancillary design
And when they don't fit
They become the problem
The problem
Expel the problem
Make it go away
Expel the problem
Make it go away
Make it go away
Make it go away
Make it go away
Expel the problem
Make it go away
Expel the problem
