My voice screaming through your mobile telephone
My fist clenched tight against your status quo
My teeth are brand new from dr. best and his son
My soul for a little bit of resolution

It was on sale at an offer an unbeatable price
Trade in your wasted life for a newer device
It had only begun and i already knew
Theres something wrong with this promise theres a problem for you

I wont give in, I'm taking it back (x4)

Guten tag, guten tag now im taking it back
I cant give any more, so now im taking it back
Guten tag i admit i was impressed at the start
But your life starts crushing when you take it too far
Guten tag

My voice coming at you on a late night show
My fists reigning blows down on your cheek bones
My teeth biting at the heart of television
My soul for a little bit of revolution

It was on sale at an offer an unbeatable price
Trade in your wasted life for a newer device
It had only begun and i already knew
Theres something wrong with this promise theres a problem for you

I wont give in, I'm taking it back (x4)

Guten tag, guten tag now im taking it back
I cant give any more, so now im taking it back
Guten tag i admit i was impressed at the start
But your life starts crushing when you take it too far
Guten tag

Mobile phone
Doctor under the sun
Unbeatable price
Theres a problem for you
On a late night show
Television
My soul for a little bit of revolution

It was on sale at an offer an unbeatable price
Trade in your wasted life for a newer device
It had only begun and i already knew
Theres something wrong with this promise theres a problem for you

I wont give in, I'm taking it back (x8)

Guten tag, guten tag now im taking it back
I cant give any more, so now im taking it back
Guten tag i admit i was impressed at the start
But your life starts crushing when you take it too far
Guten tag

Guten tag

    General CommentI know what gives with that? +44 is more popular in Europe, seeing as how thats where they formed the band. to be honest i think AVA has more american fans, which is pretty gay. its all those damn emo kids, gaying up everything!

    by the way this song is really cool!

    General CommentI don't think that's what they mean by the lyrics. I'm still learning German but here's what I think:

    Meine Stimme gegen ein Mobiltelefon

    "gegen" means "against", but here it means "for" as in "trade for".

    So the correct meaning is:

    My voice, for your mobile phone.
    My fist, for your nail-care lotion.
    My teeth, for those from Dr. Best and his son.
    My soul, for your gentle epilation.

    Meaning she wants to trade all the artificial products for the real ones, her original life.

    And when she says:

    An dem Produkt ist was kaputt, das ist die Reklamation

    She means:

    Your product is faulty, this is my complaint (reason) for returning it.

    Great song.. One of their greatest ever.
