"Der Golem" as written by and Karl Ernst Sasse....
You must guard this secret with your life
The hour has come
Breathe life into clay
A slave
We will be saved
When he rises up a mental brave

The creature walks
Combat the enemy

Follow follow follow follow follow follow follow
Your enemy
Follow follow follow follow follow follow follow
Your enemy
The creature walks
Now who's your enemy?

I'm the Golem
The secret stolen
This is my body

I walk again

Life born anew
Let silence scorn you
Reach out my body

I walk again

    General CommentI haven't seen the movie Der Golem, I want to, but to me the song conveys a story of people ressurrecting a Golem (a kind of creature made of rocks) to combat their enemy, but once it does that it turns on its makers.

    "Breathe Life Into Clay" is one of the best moments in a song ever.

    My OpinionIt's a version of creating an artificial or supernatural intelligence to fight for, then turning on it's creators. This story or idea has probably been around for as long as mankind, I'm guessing. The day we turn "them" loose, is the day we are finished as the dominant species on this planet. This is a great song by one of my favorite bands, by the way. Anything Mike Patton touches is pure genius to me. Add in Buzz Osborne, Trevor Dunn, and Dave Lombardo...are you kidding me? It doesn't get much better than that, for me anyway.
