"Diokhan" as written by and Henning/poschwatta Ruemenapp....
Stand up, don't sit in the dark
Or should I call out the name of d.k.
The penetration of my brain is so sick
I feel it every night wounds and licks

Beyond the days of sympathy
A tragic friendship is lost in me
Now pull the nails out of my body
The beast is a mirror
And the mirror shot me

Would you leave my head
I'm inside your crimes
Calling out the name of d.k.

Stand up, don't sit in the dark
You are still creeping here
And drinking another shark
The illustration of your mind
Is just a trick
I smell it everywhere

Rooks tres chique
Beyond the nights of agony
A thousand friendships live in me
I pull the nails out of my body
The beast is a rhythm
And the rhythm got me

Would you leave my head
I'm inside your mind
Calling out the name of d.k.

Vanity is a therapy
In your eyes
No you got to learn how to breathe
Irony is security
In your eyes
No you got to learn how to breathe

Like a spy in my own army
You have come to
March all over me, I turn my back
You took your chance
I feel the knife
Twist and turn in me

    General CommentThe lyrics should be "Calling out the name of Diokhan," because, after all, that is the title. I listened to the song a couple more times to check... and I always hear "Diokhan" not "D.K." So... yes. I have no idea who/what Diokhan is, but I do enjoy this song.

    My InterpretationUpon doing a bit of research, I found that 'diokhan' was spawned from 'diocane', an Italian insult that means 'king of dogs'.

    (also, I think "d.k." is an ascribed abbreviation for "diokahn", because that was how it was written in the lyric pamphlet for the CD.)

    For some reason, I feel like this song is supposed to be about a woman finding herself drawn into this smooth, slick guy, whom she soon finds to be a spineless meatball.

    She insults him (perhaps using the phrase 'diokhan', or its Italian derivative), and when she turns her back, he moves in on her and stabs her in his anger (hence the final lyric. Dang, that line always makes me wince from the connotations.)
