Reunion begins with a glass of mercury
Television flickers
With a another news bulletin
Flints light up the eyes of the seated family

Metal is tough, metal will sheen
Metal won't rust when oiled and cleaned
Metal is tough, metal will sheen
Metal will rule in my master scheme

Oh, with a clockwork jerk pluck cogs from fob watches
For dinner on Friday
Then recoiling say "Excuse me
Must go recycle my precious machinery"

Metal is tough, metal will sheen
Metal won't rust when oiled and cleaned
Metal is tough, metal will sheen
Metal will rule in my master scheme

It's ruling our lives, there is no hope
Thought I'd drop a line, the weather here is fine
But day and night it blares
Commanding through loudspeakers

Metal is tough, metal will sheen
Metal won't rust when oiled and cleaned
Metal is tough, metal will sheen
Metal will rule in my master scheme, in my master scheme

Metal is tough, metal is clean
Metal, metal, come on metal
Come on, come on metal
Next time I'll serve metal

    General Comment"Hurrah, die Butter ist alle!" is a montage by John Heartfield. The band said that this song is a warning about how some powerful figurehead could implant a master scheme and you'd wake up to find daily orders coming over the, er, totalitarian loudspeakers.
