"Alle Gegen Alle" as written by and Robert Goerl....
Unsere Kleidung ist so schwarz.
Unsere Stiefel sind so schön.
Links den roten Blitz.
Rechts den schwarzen Stern.
Unsere Shreie sind so laut.
Unser Tanz ist so wild.
Ein neuer böser Tanz.
Alle gegen Alle.

    General CommentLaibach own this song now--no question. Its placement on NATO is, to my mind, telling of their desire to warn about the potential consequences of joining a mutual defense alliance. Such an alliance didn't exactly prevent WW1, which ironically started because of events in another former Yugoslavian city not far from Ljubljana. Personally, I'm in favor of NATO's existence, aside from recognizing the dangers.

    General CommentTranslation:

    Our clothes are so black.
    Our boots are so beautiful.
    [To the] left the red lightning.
    To the right the black star.
    Our cries are so loud.
    Our dance is so wild.
    A new evil dance.
    All against all.

    From Google Translate, with the following corrections assumed:

    "schön" = "schön"
    "böser" = "böser"
    "Shreie" = "Schreie"

    I also added what I think is a necessary clarification in one line.

    The original song (same lyrics) seems to be about youth culture and its factions, especially as manifested in punk and skinhead youth cultures of the time. The changing of "red star" and "black lightning" (references to socialism/communism and the SS, both of which figured into the aforementioned cultures) to "black star" and "red lightning" seems to indicate that the lines between the two sides were getting blurred in various ways in the course of the youth movement--for examples, members of one side could be seen as behaving more along lines of the opposite ideology, and some members of one side switched or appeared to switch sides as time progressed. Many of them dressed the same, or were indistinguishable from dress alone. Infighting was common, too.
