"Das Letzte Streichholz" as written by and Dero/flux Goi....
sie küsste sanft ihr liebstes spielzeug
bevor sie es zerbrach
dann schlich sie sich voll dunkler sehnsucht
ins kalte schlafgemach

sie holte leis das letzte streichholz
aus vaters schrank hervor
"warum hast du mir nie gehoffen?"
schrie sie in mutters ohr
"ich hoffe, dass wir und nie wiedersehen!"

"damit ihr wisst, wie est ist
in der hölle zu sein
damit ihr wisst, wie es ist
nach erlösung zu schrein
nur deshalb komm ich zurück
mit flammendem blick
ich nehm das letzte streichholz
und verbrenne eure schöne heile welt"

sie kochte sich die letzte mahlzeit
bevor sie sich erbrach
dann spuckte sie voll tiefer abscheu
ins schwarze schlafgemach
"ich hoffe, dass wir und nie wiedersehen!"

"damit ihr wisst, wie est ist
in der hölle zu sein
damit ihr wisst, wie es ist
nach erlösung zu schrein
nur deshalb komm ich zurück
mit flammendem blick
ich nehm das letzte streichholz
und verbrenne eure welt"

"wisst ihr jetzt, wie die hölle wirklich ist
wisst ihr jetzt, wie die hölle wirklich ist
wisst ihr, dass euer spiel zu ende ist
wisst ihr, dass eure liebe tödlich ist?"

(nie wieder! nie wieder!)

"damit ihr wisst, wie est ist
in der hölle zu sein
damit ihr wisst, wie es ist
nach erlösung zu schrein
nur deshalb komm ich zurück
mit flammendem blick
ich nehm das letzte streichholz
und verbrenne eure welt"

    General CommentThe title is "The Last Match" in German.

    English translation: She kissed her favorite toy softly
    Before she broke it
    Then full of longing she tip-toed
    Into the cold bedroom

    She quietly took the last match
    Out of Father's cabinet
    "Why did you never help me?"
    She screamed in Mother's ear
    "I hope we never meet again!"

    "So that you know what it's like
    To be in Hell
    So that you know what it's like
    To scream for redemption
    So I'm just going to come back
    With a burning gaze
    I take the last match
    And burn your beautiful perfect world"

    She cooks herself her last meal
    Before she throws up
    Then she spit full of deep loathing
    Into the black bedroom
    "I hope we never meet again!"

    So that you know what it's like...

    Do you know now, what Hell really is like?
    Do you know now, what Hell really is like?
    Do you know, that your game is over?
    Do you know, that your love is deadly?

    (Never again! Never again!)

    So that you know what it's like...

    General Commentit's about a girl that destroys its home because her parents treat (oder treated) her very bad. that's what you can read in the lyrics.
    but i think you can interpret more in it: the song could be generally about the point when you say "stop!" and take revenge for all the bad things people did to you. "Damit ihr wisst, wie es ist
    in der Hölle zu sein
    Damit ihr wisst wie es ist
    nach Erlösung zu schrein"
    (="So that you know what it's like
    To be in Hell
    So that you know what it's like
    To scream for redemption")
    and she song is called "das letzte streichholz" ("the last match") because after your payback (or the girl's), they can't harm you again. (literally the girl burns down her home and probably kills her parents. but i think that's meant figuratively for making sure they can never hurt you again.)

    Song MeaningI have always had the impression that this song was about a girl who was sexually abused by her father and neglected by her mother, finally snapping and taking them down with her.

    The first thing that I feel hints at the sexual abuse aspect is that she asks her mother, "Why did you never help me?" as opposed to, "Why did you hurt me?" which implies that her mother overlooked the abuse, rather than participating in it. The other line is "Wisst ihr, dass eure Liebe todlich ist?" There is no "love" that is deadlier or more toxic than parental rape.

    Truly a very sad song.
