"Feurio!" as written by and F.m. Strauss B. Bargeld....
Mittels Druck und Körperwärme
Wird aus unserer Konfusion
Eine Kernfusion
Und ungeheuer
Ungeheuer viel
Viel Energie wird frei

Mag sein, dass es nichts nutzt
Aber es beschleunigt
Und wenn es nur beschleunigt
Was ohnehin vergeht
Ist das kein Vergehen
Durchaus zu verstehen
Und ein Grund mehr für Feurio!

Marinus, Marinus, hörst du mich?
Marinus, Marinus, du warst es nicht
Es war Koenig Feurio!

Nur die halbe Welt ist Teflon und Asbest
Der Rest ist brennbar
Und mitunter angezündet
Ganz munter anzuschau'n
So lichterloh
Lichterloh
Und alles für Koenig Feurio!

Du bist das Licht der Welt
Mit dem wir uns vermischen
Bist nicht zu unterscheuden — Wer… Wer?
Dann haben wir entschieden
Sind entschieden
Leicht entflammbar und brisant
Unstillbar wenn entbrannt
Für König Feurio!

    General CommentMarinus is the name of this young Dutch communist, Marinus van der Lubbe, accused of and executed for setting fire to the German Reichstag on February 27, 1933, but interpreting it as a symbol of water is an interesting idea too. Koenig Feurio most likely refers to Goering (read anything about the Reichstag fire) but also it is the symbol of the essence of destruction. Apart from that lyrics of this song may be interpreted even as containing sexual references... it is one of the best songs by EN.

    General Commentsorry, wrong guess. the song is about the exploding anger of people. translation from neubauten.org:

    By means of pressure and body warmth
    out of our confusion
    comes a nuclear fusion
    and a monster
    a monster
    a monstrous amount of energy's released

    It might be that it's useless
    but it quickens
    and if it quickens
    then what's to perish we concede
    is no mis-deed
    we're all agreed
    one more reason for feurio!

    Marinus, Marinus can you hear me?
    Marinus it wasn't you
    it was king Feurio!

    only half the world is teflon and asbestos
    the rest is burnable
    and it might be if ignited
    quite delightful to behold
    such a blaze
    ablaze
    and all for king Feurio!

    You are the light of the world
    within which we mix ourselves
    until one cannot determine — who...who?
    then we have determined
    are determined
    easily enflamed and explosive
    insatiable when aroused
    for king Feurio!

    marinus means the dutch communist marinus van der lubbe. he was accused of burning the german "reichstag" in 1933 and killed by the nazis 1934.

    General CommentHi gaspode,

    I think the usage of the name "Marinus" is furthermore an ironic allusion to the name "Feurio". Because in German the word "Feurio" derives from "Feuer", that means "fire" in english. The suffix "io" is some kind of personalization - quasi the person Feurio, who represents the element fire.
    And "Marinus" derives from "marin". In German its an adjective and means "affiliation to the sea". The suffix "(n)us" is like the "io" in "Feurio" - a personalization of the element water.

    Marinus, Marinus, hoerst du mich?
    Marinus, Marinus, du warst es nicht
    es war Koenig Feurio!

    I do really like this lines! because of both the lyrical and the historical ambiguity. It's quite typical for Blixas lyrics.

    General CommentMy german isn't the best but I guess this song is against the use of nuclear power. The lines "Nur die halbe Welt ist Teflon und Asbest / der Rest ist brennbar " is totaly genius.
    Although I'm positive to the use of nuclear power I love this song.
