"Asche Zu Asche" as written by Oliver Riedel, Doktor Christian Lorenz, Christoph Doom Schneider, Richard Z. Kruspe, Paul Landers and Till Lindemann....
Warmer Körper
Heißes Kreuz
Falsches Urteil
Kaltes Grab

Auf dem Kreuze lieg ich jetzt
Sie schlagen mir die Nägel ein
Das Feuer wäscht die Seele rein
Und übrig bleibt ein Mundvoll
Asche

Ich komm wieder
In zehn Tagen
Als dein Schatten
Und werd dich jagen

Heimlich werd ich auferstehen
Und du wirst um Gnade flehen
Dann knie ich mich in dein Gesicht
Und steck den Finger in die Asche

Asche zu Asche
Und Staub zu Staub

    General CommentWhat about... The death and resurrection of Christ changed the world forever... at least the dogma did... and so it does come and haunt us all... because after all those lessons... we never understood anything, crucifying Him ( what He represents, dogma, essence, etc.) every day... noticed the abundance of Christian religions and sects in the last 100-200 years? :) + the deep involvement of the Churches in politics... in the last... well... 1694 years of Christianity... I'd have more to say about this... but I don't want to write more than the lyrics...:)) have a nice day :)

    General CommentFrom what I can gather this song seems to refer to someone who has been wrongly convicted of a crime and thus nailed to a wooden cross and burned as punishment, the person then returns from the dead to hunt down the perpertators.
    Wicked guitars on this track...
