look through anybody's windows
see everywhere the same
people suffering from hunger
an appetizing pain
call it justice
call it fair
i just call it a mistake
starving artists cry for help
in this state of decay

in this rule it's time (?)
and they heard their favorite pop songs
to remind of times of wisdom
they heard a thousands voices say,
"satisfaction, fortune, health"
so far away

look through anybody's windows
see everywhere the same
people suffering from hunger
an appetizing pain
call it justice
call it fair
i just call it a mistake
starving artists cry for help
in this state of decay

looking people in their eyes
see the concrete brains behind
see the thoughts that they cry (?)
feel the sleeping guilt inside
pray to heaven
pray to hell
pray for reasons far away
public falls asleep and die
no longer dream of paradise

look through anybody's windows
see everywhere the same
people suffering from hunger
an appetizing pain
call it justice
call it fair
i just call it a mistake
starving artists cry for help
in this state of decay

    General CommentFirstly: It's 'narcotizing' pain, not 'appetizing'...

    Excellent tune. I love this sort of haunting/dark EBM, synthy stuff.

    The theme though... I intepret as a sort of message that everyone else has just as bad as you do and that everything is falling apart.

    Talk about gloomy, sheesh.

    General CommentYeah, there are several mistakes in these lyrics...

    In the chorus:
    "A narcotising pain", not appetising.
    "Starving masses cry for help", not artists.

    First verse:
    "In this ruthless time", not in this rule it's time.

    Second verse:
    "See the concrete bricks behind", not brains
    "See the false tears that they cry", not thoughts
    "Pray for reason, for a way", not far away
    "Public falls asleep... and I", not die

    It's a great song, in my opinion. I've always interpreted it as talking about a city or even a country in ruins after a war (hence "call it justice, call it fair"), possibly the artist's native Germany. No matter whose house you go to, everywhere looks the same, nobody has enough to live on, and everything's in a state of decay.
