Television, religion,
Social destruction
Sex & drugs
Violent seduction
Crystal dawn
Ecstatic explosion
Parental advice leads
To mental erosion

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

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

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

Total sedation of
Longing desire
Cremation of senses
In friendly fire

Stronger than never
Ever before
KMFDM is
A Drug Against War

    General CommentThis song is very, very addicting. It's something you want to listen to over and over again...just very catchy. I was thinking it was just about how we're constantly bombarded from TV, radio, news, etc. about drugs and war and how we shouldn't do them how it's bad etc. but then that leads to people just doing them more.

    General Comment'If you think you're the best, you're not, because with your advocating, it's a bigger war eventually.'

    Is this what the sample says at 1:07?
    "Do you think there's a base or not? Because what you're advocating is a bigger war eventually." ?

    General CommentThis is one of my favorite KMFDM songs, after just about all of the Xtort CD, and I was thinking about the lines: "Line after line
    Round after round
    Empty shells fall to the ground" and how the 'empty shells' part could refer to both empty ammo shells and dead bodies which are empty shells after they die.
