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
This is the dignity that you felt
This is the gutter where you have knelt
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
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
Give me reason
Give me something
To believe in
Close your eyes
One for all and all for one
The quest for truth
Disobedient yet responsive
Out of darkness there will be light
It's a war with no winners
When violence hits home
Ignorance is your religion
Take this spear and heal thyself
One too many lies
It's the greatest swindle
Everything falls into place
Take these words and feel thyself

    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.
