"Looking for Strange" as written by Lucia Cifarelli and Dan Harnett....
Jetlag limbo can't decide
Like molten rock I turn to stone
Take me outside of myself
Do it nice and slow
Somewhere down here in the underbelly
No words are used to speak at all
Comatose from lack of sleep
Will I ever learn to talk?
Echoes scream without a sound
Mirror pond reflects no face
Shellshock avalanche
Dialed out can't be reached
No failsafe at close range

Girls and boys
Guns and noise
Beat by beat
Be the best that you can be
Best to your ability
Your future's bright and ours to take
Do exactly as we say
Step right up, sign right here
Your name in blood, have no fear

Get ready set all systems go

Good life Godlike
Wanna see it from the inside
Bound down gun shy
Looking for strange
Go on give it to me
Don't stop let me feel it
Looking for strange
Faster, Harder, More
Last chance, no return
Looking for strange

Freefall swan dive

    General CommentOMG. Scream at 2:29 is so sexy with the "Give it to me don't stop" in the foreground. This is actually my favorite KMFDM song among Stars and Stripes and Blackball. So good.

    General CommentGreat comeback song by KMFDM. I like the way the guitar fades out at 1:46.

    General CommentSo, to me, this song is about the military, and war (as a lot of KMFDM songs are). I could go on and analyze lyric by lyric but who am I kidding, I'm too drunk for that shit. All I have to say is....

    "Girls and boys
    Guns and noise
    Beat by beat
    Be the best that you can be
    Best to your ability
    Your future’s bright and ours to take
    Do exactly as we say
    Step right up, sign right here
    Your name in blood, have no fear"

    Girls and Boys...The openly try to persuade males and females into joining the military
    Guns and noise...This is the appeal, guns, and noise. Seems like it'd be fun at first, right?
    Be the best that you can be...The army's commercial slogan at one time was "Be all that you can be"...Pretty close if you ask me

    The rest is quite obvious....

    "Your name in blood, have no fear"
    I can only thing to the moment when I took the oath, and my recruiter said "You are now a part of the most powerful Army the world has ever seen"
