"Dr. Stein" as written by and Michael Weikath....
Once they killed his monster when it went into a trap
Now he's making better ones on a higher step

On a warm summer day the doctor went away
To a place where he could make it real
His assistant's hips were nice so he cloned her once or twice
Now his hips are aching what a deal

Dr. Stein grows funny creatures, let's them run into the night
They become great rock musicians and their time is right, time is right

Sometimes when he's feeling bored, he's calling it a day
He's got his computer and they do it their own way

They mix some DNA, some skin and certain spray
You can watch it on a laser screen
And the fellow's blue and gray or sometimes pink and green
Just check it out on Halloween

Dr. Stein grows funny creatures, let's them run into the night
They become great politicians and their time is right

One night he cloned himself, put his brother on a shelf
But when he fell asleep that night
It crept up from behind and thought, "well never mind"
Took a syringe and blew out his life

Dr. Stein grows funny creatures, let's hem run into the night
They become a great possession and their time is right
Dr. Stein grows funny creatures, let's hem run into the night
They become a great oppression and their time is right
Time is right, time is right, time is right

    General CommentIt's about what we do with our life, we create or become into any kind of 'monsters' (referring to what we want to achieve in life and what we do to get there) for great possession or great oppression.

    Dr Stein (ourselves) had a beautiful assistant and he worked to have some copies of her but now his own hips are aching WHAT A DEAL!!! (we try to get more from what should be enjoyable in our life, and it becomes a great oppression instead of a great possession).

    One day he cloned himself and put his brother (himself's clone) on a shelf, and when he fell asleep, his clone soaked up his life; do we follow a similar way in our own life? do we work to create situations that aren't good for us? do we work for sistems (enterprises, governments, communities, etc) in a direction that will destroy ourselves? ARE WE DIGGING OUR OWN TOMB? WHAT A DEAL!!!

    General CommentIt think you are right Matt, but it isn't only about this. I think Helloween mix some politics and other stuffs in their songs. Like
    "[1] great rock musicians
    [2] great politicians
    [3] a great possession
    [4] a great oppression"

    Well, it's fun too, but It maybe has a meaning. Some become possesion, others oppression!

    General CommentThis song is about a Mad Doctor, who I'm pretty sure is either Dr Frankenstein, or a doctor based on him (Dr Stein could be short for Dr Frankenstein). Dr Stein makes monsters in his Lab, and lets them go out and terrorize the world. His first monster (which I'm presuming is Frankenstein's Monster, from the book written by Mary Shelly) was hunted down by the village and trapped, and then was killed. So Dr Stein started making better ones, and more than one at a time.

    General CommentHmm, maybe you're right but in my opinion Dr. Stein could be also a God. Look, some people do believe that God made all of us. Just like Dr. Stein made his monsters. And I just thought that 'Once they killed his monster when it went into a trap' could be about...Jesus. He WAS trapped...But I don't know, maybe I'm wrong
