We had a mod-fuck jubilee
To celebrate our broken hearts
We carved tombs from the rocks and stones
And transformed them into art
We gave the plot a twist
Blew the past a kiss
Turned it upside down
To quench fiending lips
Freak sons and forgotten ones
Who disappeared before the Flood
Tell-tale signs of our thoughts and minds
Have been encoded into blood
We spun the wheels of the Armageddon
Just to see what it would bring
With blood and rain it will spin again
Let the voice of judgment sing: Mach Schau!

    General Commentin case anyone doesn't know, "mach schau", I think is german for "make a show", or "make it entertaining".

    General CommentIf you translate it correctly it means "Make, Have a look" But I Think the Band wanted to say "Make a Show" what pumkinhead allready said...

    General CommentMach Schau is what the Germans used to call combining good Rock n' Roll with an entertaining stage presence

    General CommentWow, that's interesting. I thought it was maybe an ancient Mayan thing like they're band name is... It still makes sense, make a show and the rock and roll colloquialism. It's the end of the world, Mach Schau!
