Die wunder dieser welt werden dir geschenkt
Glück ist nicht käuflich sehnsucht bleibt unerreicht
Preisrätsel winken nimmersatt
Kein mitleid für die mehrheit

Nihilistic mystics
Apostolic Alcoholics
Messianic Manics

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

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

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

Like a fiendish tropic virus
Spitting bile at all you whore
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 counter-culture from the underground
Eternal revolution this is our sound
KMFDM better than the best
Megalomaniacal 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

    General CommentAh, I've heard the other way around: Kein Mehrheit Für Die Mitleid--that is, no majority for pity.

    General Commentdid anyone ever stop to think that maybe it's "no pity for the masses"? Meaning no pity for the ppl... instead of no pity for the majority... meaning... no pity for whatever there's more of lol

    General CommentI love the lines:

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

    It's just so goddamn random. Love it.

    General CommentI love these:
    "nihilistic mystics
    apostolic alcoholics
    messianic manics
    cataclysmic and prolific
    in the age of super-boredom
    hype and mediocrity
    celebrate relentlessness
    menace to society"

    This whole song is really awesome. I've heard two different versions of it, but both of them have just been labelled as "Megalomaniac", so I'm not sure which one is the original and which is the remix.

    General CommentThis song made me thankful for my five years of German.
    I heard this in the Film Mortal Kombat: Annihilation, and fell in love with it.
    Even now, when playing the game on PS, I have to be listening to this song (and when I play Scorpion, I am unbeatable, until my thumbs get tired).
    This song, like many of theirs, is so chock full of angry energy, such a driving pulse, that impells you to get up and do ...something.
    Not bad for sex, either.

    General CommentThis song is so catchy. I love his passive voice while he sings. It makes it seem like he doesn't care.

    The Excessive Force Mix of this song is really really good aswell.
