"Die Schlinge" as written by and Dero/flux Goi....
oh ich kann nicht mehr
ich weiss, ich werde brennen
dein urteil hat sich längst
um meinen hals gelegt

oh ich kann nicht mehr
ich weiss, du wirst mich hängen
und die schlinge ist so eng
dass ich kaum noch atmen kann

spiel mir das lied vom tod
spiel mir das lied vom tod

oh ich kann nicht mehr
mein schicksal ist besiegelt
dein fluch schwebt genauso
wie der galgen über mir

oh ich kann nicht mehr
der himmel ist verriegelt
doch jetzt weiss ich nicht mal mehr
ob die hölle mich noch will

spiel mir das lied vom tod
spiel mir das lied vom tod

gib mir ein letztes mal
spiel mir das lied vom tod

    General CommentThe title means "The Noose" in German.

    English translation: Oh I can't anymore
    I know I'll burn
    Your decision laid itelf
    Around my neck long ago

    Oh I can't anymore
    I know you'll hang me
    And the noose is so tight
    That I can barely breathe

    Play me the song of death
    Play me the song of death

    Oh I can't anymore
    My fate is sealed
    Your curse is floating exactly
    Like the Gallow over me

    Oh I can't anymore
    Heaven is locked
    And I don't know anymore
    Whether Hell still wants me

    Play me the song of death
    Play me the song of death

    Give me one last time
    Play me the song of death

    General Commentit's about knowing that someone has made up his/her mind about you but hasn't said that yet. and you're just waiting to her it and that kind of kills you, because you know he/she will leave you (or wathever) and finally you're just begging for redemption. (because when the person has said it to you, you can let it go.)
    in "Spiel mir das Lied vom Tod" ("Play me the song of death") "tod" (="death") stands for the end of your relationship, friendship, whatever.

    General CommentIt's a version of Erico Morricone's Soundtrack of "Once Upon a time in the west", where it tells that one guy's last thoughts before he hangs.

    This has got to be my favorite song of Oomph!'s. At the very beginning, Dero sets up the entire song with just a sigh- which is beyond awesome, in my opinion. It makes me very sad that there aren't more comments here.
