"Risen" as written by and Tim Skold Sascha Konietzko....
A full threesixty a complete return
With no excuses and no concerns
The ultra-heavy-beat is going strong
If it feels this good then it can't be wrong

Karma echo eternity
What's good for you is still good for me
And after all we're not looking back
We manipulate the future to stay on track

Damned if you do and damned if you don't
You better seize the moment before it's gone
The ulra-heavy-beat goes on and on
When it's all said and done this is what you want

The vision direction reflecting perfection
The manifesto translates post mortem
Buried alive and left for dead
One step back is two steps ahead

Rise from the ashes and decay
Rise from the prison of your grave
Rise above the standard and the norm
Rise into the eye of the storm

Raise the flag carry the flame
The more things change the more they stay the same
The king is dead
Long live the king
Mayhem riot uprising

A small step for mankind
A giant leap for rock 'n' roll
We control the rhythm
The beat cops are on patrol
Wake up people
Get on your feet
It's time to do your part
For the ultra-heavy-beat

Shoulder to shoulder
Back to back
All guns ablaze
Systematic attak
Strong and rigid
Bold and vivid
Spread the news the ego has landed

Metal detectors
Don't let the systems continue to rape you
Vodka and benzene
Destroy the machine
The glorious end justifies the means

    General CommentThis song, to me anyways, is both a protest song, and a song about the band KMFDM.

    General CommentEvery KMFDM album has at least one "ego song" ("Inane", "Light", "DIY", "Megalomaniac", etc). This is ATTAK's. As annoying as Skold is, this is a fun song. I'll probably get tired of it pretty soon.

    General CommentIt should be:

    A FULL 360 a complete return

    Raise the flag carry the FLAME

    Spread the news the EAGLE has landed

    that's what I got out of the song. I am pretty sure the rest of this is correct, but with Skold's distorted voice, it's hard to tell.
