This is the throne where hatred keeps.
What is sown is never reaped.
This is the blindness that you need.
This is the vein on which you feed.
Surrender - It's just one twist!
I will surrender - My aching wrist!
I can't remember - It's never enough!
I will surrender - It's never enough!
Oh my darling - One for all and all for one!
Give me reason - The quest for truth!
Give me something - Disobedient yet responsive!
To believe in - Out of darkness there will be light!
Close your eyes,
Close your eyes.
This is the dignity that you felt.
This is the gutter where you have knelt.
Oh my darling - It's a war with no winners!
Give me reason - When violence hits home!
Give me something - Ignorance is your religion!
To believe in - Take this spear and heal thyself!
Disobedience! - One too many lies!
Disobedience! - It's the greatest swindle!
Disobedience! - Everything falls into place!
Disobedience! - Take these words and feel thyself!
This is your wretched, heavin' high.
These are the shamed, the damned, the blamed.
I can smell the slowly spreadin' stain.
Oh, the burden of shame.
Oh my darling,
Give me reason,
Give me something,
To believe in.
This is your wretched, heavin' high.

    General CommentThis song is amazing. I absolutely adore it, but have no idea what it's really meaning. I was hoping someone had some idea, but it seems nearly everyone is at a loss to explain it. One of KMFDM's best earlier songs.

    General CommentHaha, masturbation? To me it's about vampires. And not lame ass twilight girly vampires, more like Interview with the Vampire.

    General CommentThis song is likely a reference to civil disobedience like that preached by Gandhi. Much of Nihil follow a similar non-violence theme. Much of the song describes a culture created by an out-of-control capitalist government and suggests disobedience as an appropriate action to bring about positive change.
