If the friends are good to me
The white fairy is bending her bow
Shoots into the face of my worries
and out of the two halves breaks
the father of all mirrors

He`s waving at me and I bend
and he`s whispering in my ear

You are the sweetest child of all
I`ll keep you as my own blood
you are the nicest child of all
in me even the evil is good

The curiosity is making my dream longer
the white fairy she sings and she laughs
she made me pregnant violently
and is torturing me through the night
the father of all mirrors

He`s waving at me and I bend
and he`s whispering in my ear

You are the sweetest child of all
I`ll keep you as my own blood
you are the nicest child of all
in me even the evil is good

As I defend myself against the pains of birth,
still being a bitch in the cradle,
watch me while I give birth,
and devour the own afterbirth.

You are the sweetest child of all...

    General CommentUmmm, hey... Mr. Wilhelm... Let's stick to the music, okay? This isn't SNL, and Chris Farley is dead. Get over it.

    General CommentActually it's "the most beautiful child of all".. But anyway, I think this song really is the most beautiful song ever! Lyrics are amazing, (though there are too many mistakes here). If it wasn't named Kokain, I guess you could find very many different things there. It could be about a lover who betrayed you. Or about life...

    General CommentThis translation is awful. I'll try a better one, it will be far from perfect - and yet an improvement. Here we go:
    "If the friends are well disposed |
    the Fairy White will arch her bow, |
    shoots my troubles in the face, |
    and on both sides the mirror cracks, |
    the father of all mirrors. ||
    He beckons me, and I reach down, |
    he whispers softly in my ear: ||
    You are the most beautiful child of all, |
    I'll keep you as blood of my own blood. |
    You are the most beautiful child, |
    In me even evil will be good. ||
    Curiosity prolongs my dream, |
    the Fairy White, she sings and laughs, |
    having forced me into expectancy, |
    and tormenting me throughout the night |
    is the father of all mirrors. ||
    You are the most beautiful child of all, |
    I'll keep you as blood of my own blood. |
    You are the most beautiful child, |
    In me even evil will be good. ||
    And as I defy the pain of birth, |
    still whoring in the maternity bed, |
    I watch myself as I give birth |
    and devour my own afterbirth. ||
    You are the most beautiful child... "
