welcome to the worlds of dreams
where people have to satisfy the need to sell their means

don’t look back in anger
you’re not the only one
to choke on all this madness,
cause all you get is none

all you get is none (2x)
don't look back in anger
you´re not the only one

live for, die for
the substance of your life.
you cannot chain your misery
just seal it in your life
moving in circles, the anger emanates
the madness all around you
the healing hands of fate (?)

this is the right.
this is the truth you prayed for
this is the fruit you die for
can't get away
can't get away
can't get away

"rindfleisch, miss shirl"
"haben sie ein solches stück schon mal gesehn?"
"wie oft kann ich denn schon einmal meiner kundschaft etwas anbieten, was derart phantastisch ist?"
"nun ist es also soweit"
"richtig ist es nicht doch, notwendig"
"für gott" (5x)
"geh mit gott"

soylent green (repeated)
soylent - this is the way to resurrect
the hope, the fear
the bodies are littered

god and religion,
religious in vain (x3)
god is religion, religious imprisonment!

"ich kann ihnen nicht helfen, leider verzeihen sie mir"
"was hat er gebeichtet?"
"gott möge uns schützen"

"ich hab gesehn was sich dort abspielt"
"die ozeane sind leer, das plankton geht zugrunde"
"es dauert nicht lange und sie werden menschen züchten zur ernährung, wie vieh"
"die menschheit muss es wissen"

"es ist menschenfleisch"
"soylent grün ist ein produkt aus menschenfleisch"


"gott möge uns schützen"
"soylent grün ist menschenfleisch!"

    General Commentcan't believe no one commented on this! ::gasp:: this song is FREAKING AMAZING. it's about cannibalism, and i know soylent green is a movie about "people eating." that's why he says "soylent grün ist menschenfleisch!" (soylent green is human flesh!)

    oh yeah. and the rest of the song since it's obviously not all about cannibalism. basically religious imprisonment. kinda like how the lyrics say that. well, that's my guess.

    General CommentInspired by the movie Soylent Green from 1973. imdb.com/title/tt0070723/

    In an overpopulated futuristic Earth, a New York police detective finds himself marked for murder by government agents when he gets too close to a bizarre state secret involving the origins of a revolutionary and needed new foodstuff.

    The German Quotes are taken from the German version of the movie.

    General CommentActually Soylent green was originally a book and yes it does appear to be based on the book. Acording to the book in about 7 years (old book) the world will be so overpopulated that euthanasia is endorsed by the government and simple food items such as bread and milk are luxury items and a pack of cigs could cost you around 100$. If you plan on reading the book then don't read past this it is a spoiler. In the book a higher up of the a company decides to be euthanized and a investigator is hired to research the soylent corporation in one part of the book he enters a euthanasia facility and finds that the people who were euthanized are sent through grinders to make the product soylent green (there are three colors of soylent: soylent yellow, soylent orange, and soylent green the most popular of the group) and then he utters the timeless phrase "Soylent green is man".

    To me the song is just a tribute to the book and how Rat must of loved it.
