01. Megalomaniac

Music & lyrics by Sascha Konietzko, Gunter Schultz, En Esch
Die Wunder dieser Welt werden dir geschenkt
Glück ist nicht käuflich
Sehnsucht bleibt unerreicht
Preisrätsel winken
Nimmersatt
Kein Mitleid Für Die Mehrheit
Kein Mehrheit Für Die Mitleid

Nihilistic mystics
Apostolic alcoholics
Messianic manics
Cataclysmic and prolific

In the age of super-boredom
Hype and mediocrity
Celebrate relentlessness
Menace to society

This is counterculture from the underground
Eternal revolution this is our sound
KMFDM better than the best
Megalomanical and harder than the rest

Refuse is our inspiration
Terrorism our trade
Sabotage and piracy
Chaos our mental state

Mesmerizing festering
Intended for the faint of heart
Cultish and anthemic
Until death us do part

This is counterculture from the underground
Eternal revolution this is our sound
KMFDM better than the best
Megalomanical and harder than the rest

Wenn der Untergrund bebt ist die Ordnung erschüttert
Der Verrat an der Seele macht Leben ungesund
Mit unschlagbaren Reimen werden wir uns vertreiben
Die Zeit der langen Weile bis zum grossen Bums

Like a fiendish tropic virus
Spitting bile at all you whores
Razor-sharp tongue-in-cheek
Poking in your open sores

A wolf in sheep's clothing
The ultimate disgrace
Wrapped up as a gift of God
Exploding in your face

This is counterculture from the underground
Eternal revolution this is our sound
KMFDM better than the best
Megalomanical and harder than the rest

Refuse is our inspiration
Terrorism our trade
Sabotage and piracy
Chaos our mental state

In the age of super-boredom
Hype and mediocrity
Celebrate relentlessness
Menace to society

This is counterculture from the underground
Eternal revolution this is our sound
KMFDM better than the best
Megalomanical and harder than the rest

Megalomanical
Megalomanical
Megalomanical
Better than the best
And harder than the rest


02. Stray Bullet

Music & lyrics by Sascha Konietzko, Gunter Schultz, En Esch
I am your holy totem
I am your sick taboo
Radical and radiant
I'm your nightmare coming true
I am your worst enemy
I am your dearest friend
Malignantly malevolent
I am of divine descent

I am your apocalypse
I am your belief unwrought
Monolithic juggernaut
I'm the illegitimate son of God

Stray bullet
From the barrel of love
Stray bullet
From the heavens above
Stray bullet
Ready or not
I'm the illegitimate son of God Stray bullet
Stray bullet
Stray bullet
Ready or not
I'm the illegitimate son of God

I have come to rock your world
I have come to shake your faith
Anathematic anarchist
I have come to take my place

I am your apocalypse
I am your belief unwrought
Monolithic juggernaut
I'm the illegitimate son of God

Stray bullet
From the barrel of love
Stray bullet
From the heavens above
Stray bullet
Ready or not
I'm the illegitimate son of God
Stray bullet
Stray bullet
Stray bullet
Ready or not
I'm the illegitimate son of God
I am your unconsciousness
I am unrestrained excess
Metamorphic restlessness
I'm your unexpectedness

Stray bullet
From the barrel of love
Stray bullet
From the heavens above
Stray bullet
Ready or not
I'm the illegitimate son of God

Stray bullet
From the barrel of love
Stray bullet
From the heavens above
Stray bullet
Ready or not
I'm the illegitimate son of God

Stray bullet
From the barrel of love
Stray bullet
From the heavens above
Stray bullet
Ready or not
I'm the illegitimate son of God

Stray bullet
From the barrel of love
Stray bullet
From the heavens above
Stray bullet
Ready or not
I'm the illegitimate son of God

Stray bullet
From the barrel of love
Stray bullet
From the heavens above
Stray bullet
Ready or not
I'm the illegitimate son of God


03. Leid Und Elend

Music & lyrics by Sascha Konietzko, Gunter Schultz, En Esch
Dein Boot verlässt den Hafen unserer Stadt
Alleine fährst Du in die klare Nacht
Nur noch fünf Minuten wünsch ich mir
Meine wahre Sehnsucht kommt mit Dir

Ich liebe Deinen Mond in meiner Nacht
Ohne Deine Sonne ist kein Tag
Du bist doch mein Stern am Firmament
Ich bin der Stein und Du bist mein Zement

Geteiltes Leid ist halbes Leid
Mein Herz ist Dein Herz
Geteiltes Glück ist halbes Glück
Dein Schmerz ist mein Schmerz

Geteiltes Leid ist halbes Leid
Mein Herz ist Dein Herz
Geteiltes Glück ist halbes Glück
Dein Schmerz ist mein Schmerz

Dein Leid
Mein Elend
Mein Leid
Dein Elend
Mein Elend
Dein Leid
Dein Elend
Mein Leid
Ich bin deine Taste am Klavier
Alles was Du wolltest spiel' ich dir
Deiner süssen Wunde süsser Saft
Macht mich sehr betrunken ohne Schnaps

Geteiltes Leid ist halbes Leid
Mein Herz ist Dein Herz
Geteiltes Glück ist halbes Glück
Dein Schmerz ist mein Schmerz
Geteiltes Leid ist halbes Leid
Mein Herz ist Dein Herz
Geteiltes Glück ist halbes Glück
Dein Schmerz ist mein Schmerz

Dein Leid
Mein Elend
Mein Leid
Dein Elend
Mein Elend
Dein Leid
Dein Elend
Mein Leid
Dein Boot verlässt den Hafen unserer Stadt
Alleine fährst Du in die klare Nacht
Nur noch fünf Minuten wünsch ich mir
Meine wahre Sehnsucht kommt mit Dir

Geteiltes Leid ist halbes Leid
Mein Herz ist Dein Herz
Geteiltes Glück ist halbes Glück
Dein Schmerz ist mein Schmerz
Geteiltes Leid ist halbes Leid
Mein Herz ist Dein Herz
Geteiltes Glück ist halbes Glück
Dein Schmerz ist mein Schmerz
Dein Leid
Mein Elend
Mein Leid
Dein Elend
Mein Elend
Dein Leid
Dein Elend
Mein Leid


04. Mercy

Music & lyrics by Sascha Konietzko, Gunter Schultz, En Esch
I went through too many people
I went through heaven and hell
I went from Rome to Baghdad
Too many stories to tell

What do you mean by that?
Mercy is all you get
Do what you won't regret
Freedom's your self-respect
What do you mean by that?

I lived through too many aeons
I've risen up and I fell the fall
I have been there and I have done that
I've seen it all and all

What do you mean by that?
Mercy is all you get
Do what you won't regret
Freedom's your self-respect
What do you mean by that?

My time is running like water
Deeper I dive and deeper
Last of nine lives of the cat
I saved my soul for the reaper

What do you mean by that?
I saved my soul for the reaper
Mercy is all you get
Deeper I dive and deeper
Do what you won't regret
I saved my soul for the reaper
Freedom's your self-respect
Deeper I dive and deeper

What do you mean by that?
I saved my soul for the reaper
Mercy is all you get
Deeper I dive and deeper
Do what you won't regret
I saved my soul for the reaper
Freedom's your self-respect

What do you mean?
What do you mean?
What do you mean?
What do you mean by that?


05. Torture

Music & lyrics by Sascha Konietzko, Nivek Ogilvie
My motivations unresolved
Things are just never what they seem
Apathy's currencies deceit
Pitch bended radiated dreams
The jackal's wishing well forgotten
Dark cloud sunrise
The view of someone somewhere else is
Burnt in my eyes

How long?
Dug up remains
How low?
The rotting fame
How low?
To see right through
How long?
The hole I knew
How low?
The clear eyed stain
How long?
To set aflame
How low?
To be set up
How long?
And taken out

The ant-like karma from the crack in a hand
Full painting on a mural in a foreign landfill
Mind controlled by the pulley of the strings
So remote the view from the puppetry swingset

My reservations have evolved
Scenes once negated ushered in
Mercy killings one to one defend
The visionary criminals descend
On knees all burning

A term of lifeless useless thought
What a paid ride
Alchemic jail cell vivisection
Test subject day job

How long?
To pacify
How low?
You still deny
How low?
From up above
How low?
The tripping sound
How long?
To kick back down
How long?
The creeping crown
How low?
You holy cheat
How long?
The leap of faith

These revelations undermined
Controlled belief in leads mankind
Each penny sold and mesmerized
We're stoned
Two fold reversal beckoning

The binding crayon words inverted
In justice travestia

How long?
Dug up remains
How low?
The rotting fame
How low?
To see right through
How long?
The hole I knew
How low?
The clear eyed stain
How long?
To set aflame
How low?
To be set up
How long?
And taken out

We worship acid moans and curbside holidays
Recycle shit we throw away in glossy packaged craze
Then maybe in a day or so I'll stumble on that grassy knoll
To set the record straight
Announcing to myself
Wake up
Wake up
Wake up

We kill everything that's not tied down
We euthanize but keep alive the lowest form of prison life
So useful and experimental
Treatment of the sick and dying
What about the torture?
What about the torture?
What about the torture?
What about the torture?


06. Spit Sperm

Music & lyrics by Sascha Konietzko, Gunter Schultz, En Esch, Raymond Watts
I keep account of my hits and my misses
The bottle makes the final call
Fuel me with some of your kisses
Turn towards the weeping wall
Distilled within your discipline
Return to go and start again
Bleeding on your hallowed ground
I'm gonna lay this sodden soul right down

Spit sperm spit
Spit sperm spit

Your TV is my teacher
Confessional and preacher
Forgive me Lord for all this hate
I simply am inebriate

See the gun
Pick it up
All day long you'll have good luck
See the gun
Let it lie
You'll want that gun before you die

Spit sperm
This moral bankrupt stinking vat
Spit sperm
Of shit fueled lies and empty highs
Spit sperm
Bled between these piss stained lines
Spit sperm
And hid behind my glazing eyes

I keep account of my hits and my misses
The bottle makes the final call
Fuel me with some of your kisses
Turn towards the weeping wall
Distilled within your discipline
Return to go and start again
Bleeding on your hallowed ground
Lay this sodden soul right down

Spit sperm
Spit sperm
Spit sperm
Spit sperm

Your TV is my teacher
Confessional and preacher
Forgive me Lord for all this hate
I simply am inebriate

Spit sperm spit
Spit sperm spit

See the sperm
Pick it up
All day long you'll have good luck
See the sperm
Let it lie
You'll want that sperm before you die


07. Anarchy

Music & lyrics by Sascha Konietzko, Gunter Schultz, En Esch, Tim Skold, Bill Rieflin
Break my back
You won't break me
All is black
But I still see
Shut me down
Knock me to the floor
Shoot me up
Fuck me like a whore

Trapped under ice
Comfortably cold
I've gone as low as you can go
Feel no remorse
No sense of shame
Time's gonna wash away all pain

I made a God out of blood
Not superiority
I killed the king of deceit
Now I sleep in anarchy
Anarchy

Sacrifice to the cause
Turn your code into law
Compensate to validate the loss
You take a thief
Nail him to a cross

Gospel of rage
Faction of hate
Deviate from the absolute
Born of revenge
Raised on cement
Chaos created government

I made a God out of blood
Not superiority
I killed the king of deceit
Wake me up in anarchy
Anarchy
Anarchy
Anarchy

Trapped under ice
Comfortably cold
I've gone as low as you can go
Feel no remorse
No sense of shame
Time's gonna wash away all pain

I made a God out of blood
Not superiority
I killed the king of deceit
Now I sleep in anarchy

I made a God out of blood
Not superiority
I killed the king of deceit
Wake me up in anarchy

Born of revenge
Raised on cement
Chaos created government

I made a God out of blood
Not superiority
I killed the king of deceit
Wake me up in anarchy
Anarchy
Anarchy
Anarchy
Anarchy
Anarchy


08. Down And Out

Music & lyrics by Sascha Konietzko, Gunter Schultz, En Esch, Abby Travis
En Esch:
Welcome aboard the crazy trip
Circle of fools say 'hi'

Sascha:
Watch your step or you might trip
We're glad you came on by

Abby:
The guys and I have prepared a brew
You really ought to taste

En Esch:
It makes you strong and make you (SYMBOLS)
Don't let it go to waste

All:
All of us are going down
All of us are going down

Chorus:
Great that we pretend that we are all that
We enjoy ourselves
Should we get some help?
We have always failed yet there is no doubt
Can't go wrong from here
We are down and out

Sascha:
Care for some sweets to chase your drink?
I see that you've quite a thirst

Abby:
No, no, no you can't yet go
First things must come first

All:
All of us are going down
All of us are going down

Chorus:
Great that we pretend that we are all that
We enjoy ourselves
Should we get some help?
We have always failed yet there is no doubt
Can't go wrong from here
We are down and out
We are down and out
We are down and out

En Esch:
Delicious not, you feel alive?
You need a little space?

Sascha:
So you're not feeling well?
What's wrong with your face?

Chorus:
Great that we pretend that we are all that
We enjoy ourselves
Should we get some help?
We have always failed yet there is no doubt
Can't go wrong from here
We are down and out
We are down and out
We are down and out

Abby:
Holy smokes, we goofed again
The brew was not quite right

En Esch:
We'll throw him back behind the pen
And try again tonight

Sascha:
Welcome aboard the crazy trip
Circle of fools say 'hi'

Abby:
Watch your step or you might trip

All:
We're glad you came on by

Chorus:
Great that we pretend that we are all that
We enjoy ourselves
Should we get some help?
We have always failed yet there is no doubt
Can't go wrong from here
We are down and out


09. Unfit

Music & lyrics by Sascha Konietzko, Gunter Schultz, En Esch, Raymond Watts
You are the sweetest disease for me
I can't hear you say please to me
There's nothing you cannot say to me
Come on get down and pray with me

Get down
Shut up
Come on in
It's time to take your medicine
I'm unfit
I'm unfair
You can't feel
And I don't care
Get down
Shut up
Come on in
It's time to take your medicine
I'll wipe a stripe on you tonight
I'll tee you high and you will fly

There's no feeling inside of me
You'll see nothing can hide in me
You'll find nothing can feed on me
Don't look, listen or believe in me

Get down
Shut up
Come on in
It's time to take your medicine
I'm unfit
I'm unfair
You can't feel
And I don't care
Get down
Shut up
Come on in
It's time to take your medicine
I'll wipe a stripe on you tonight
I'll tee you high and you will fly

You are the sweet disease in me
I cannot hear your pleas for me
There's nothing you can say to me
Come on get down and lay with me

Get down
Shut up
Come on in
It's time to take your medicine
I'm unfit
I'm unfair
You can't feel
And I don't care
Get down
Shut up
Come on in
It's time to take your medicine
I'll wipe a stripe on you tonight
I'll tee you high and you will fly
Fly
You will

Get down
Shut up
Come on in
It's time to take your medicine
I'm unfit
I'm unfair
You can't feel
And I don't care
Get down

You are the sweet disease in me
I cannot hear your pleas for me
There's nothing you can say to me
Come on get down and lay with me


10. Waste

Music & lyrics by Sascha Konietzko, Gunter Schultz, En Esch, Abby Travis, Bill Rieflin
What I don't know I don't like
What I don't like I don't want
What I don't want I waste

I hypnotize with alibis and fingers made of lead
I sympathize with frozen eyes turned inwards in my head
I realize to my demise it's better left unsaid
That columns crash down endlessly and I will end up dead

Go
Waste
What I don't see I don't know
What I don't know I don't want
Waste
What I don't want I don't need
What I don't need I don't feel
Waste
What I don't feel I don't say
What I don't say I don't do
Waste
What I don't do I don't like
What I don't like I waste

I theorize I'm on the rise
But all I do is fall
I victimize my love of life
I've seen and done it all

Ready steady stop
Hurry up and wait
The tick-tick-ticking of the clock
Delineates your fate

Waste
What I don't see I don't know
What I don't know I don't want
Waste
What I don't want I don't need
What I don't need I don't feel
Waste
What I don't feel I don't say
What I don't say I don't do
Waste
What I don't do I don't like
What I don't like I waste

Ready steady go
Finish up your plate
Before you even realize
It's gonna be too late

I don't know what I see
I don't want what I know
I don't need what I want
I don't feel what I need
I don't say what I feel
I don't do what I say
I don't like what I do
I just like to waste

Waste
