Mittels Druck und Körperwärme
Wird aus unserer Konfusion
Eine Kernfusion
Und ungeheuer
Ungeheuer viel
Viel Energie wird frei

Mag sein, dass es nichts nutzt
Aber es beschleunigt
Und wenn es nur beschleunigt
Was ohnehin vergeht
Ist das kein Vergehen
Durchaus zu verstehen
Und ein Grund mehr für Feurio!

Marinus, Marinus, hörst du mich?
Marinus, Marinus, du warst es nicht
Es war Koenig Feurio!

Nur die halbe Welt ist Teflon und Asbest
Der Rest ist brennbar
Und mitunter angezündet
Ganz munter anzuschau'n
So lichterloh
Und alles für Koenig Feurio!

Du bist das Licht der Welt
Mit dem wir uns vermischen
Bist nicht zu unterscheuden — Wer… Wer?
Dann haben wir entschieden
Sind entschieden
Leicht entflammbar und brisant
Unstillbar wenn entbrannt
Für König Feurio!

    Marinus is the name of this young Dutch communist, Marinus van der Lubbe, accused of and executed for setting fire to the German Reichstag on February 27, 1933, but interpreting it as a symbol of water is an interesting idea too. Koenig Feurio most likely refers to Goering (read anything about the Reichstag fire) but also it is the symbol of the essence of destruction. Apart from that lyrics of this song may be interpreted even as containing sexual references... it is one of the best songs by EN.

    Hi gaspode,

    I think the usage of the name "Marinus" is furthermore an ironic allusion to the name "Feurio". Because in German the word "Feurio" derives from "Feuer", that means "fire" in english. The suffix "io" is some kind of personalization - quasi the person Feurio, who represents the element fire. And "Marinus" derives from "marin". In German its an adjective and means "affiliation to the sea". The suffix "(n)us" is like the "io" in "Feurio" - a personalization of the element water.

    Marinus, Marinus, hoerst du mich? Marinus, Marinus, du warst es nicht es war Koenig Feurio!

    I do really like this lines! because of both the lyrical and the historical ambiguity. It's quite typical for Blixas lyrics.

    sorry, wrong guess. the song is about the exploding anger of people. translation from

    By means of pressure and body warmth out of our confusion comes a nuclear fusion and a monster a monster a monstrous amount of energy's released

    It might be that it's useless but it quickens and if it quickens then what's to perish we concede is no mis-deed we're all agreed one more reason for feurio!

    Marinus, Marinus can you hear me? Marinus it wasn't you it was king Feurio!

    only half the world is teflon and asbestos the rest is burnable and it might be if ignited quite delightful to behold such a blaze ablaze and all for king Feurio!

    You are the light of the world within which we mix ourselves until one cannot determine — who...who? then we have determined are determined easily enflamed and explosive insatiable when aroused for king Feurio!

    marinus means the dutch communist marinus van der lubbe. he was accused of burning the german "reichstag" in 1933 and killed by the nazis 1934.

    My german isn't the best but I guess this song is against the use of nuclear power. The lines "Nur die halbe Welt ist Teflon und Asbest / der Rest ist brennbar " is totaly genius. Although I'm positive to the use of nuclear power I love this song.

So this has favorite song of OTEP's since it came out in 2004, and I always thought it was a song about a child's narrative of suffering in an abusive Christian home. But now that I am revisiting the lyrics, I am seeing something totally new. This song could be gospel of John but from the perspective of Jesus. Jesus was NOT having a good time up to and during the crucifixion. Everyone in the known world at the time looked to him with fear, admiration or disgust and he was constantly being asked questions. He spoke in "verses, prophesies and curses". He had made an enemy of the state, and believed the world was increasingly wicked and fallen from grace, or that he was in the "mouth of madness". The spine of atlas is the structure that allows the titan to hold the world up. Jesus challenged the state and in doing so became a celebrated resistance figure. It also made him public enemy #1. All of this happened simply because he was doing his thing, not because of any agenda he had or strategy. And then he gets scourged (storm of thorns) There are some plot holes here but I think it's an interesting interpretation.

This song is def a twin to "Unfair" (a song she has been quoted as saying is about falling in love with someone who is already in a relationship) so it is presumably about the same person. Given the references to buying an apartment and not being able to see her love interest "after tonight," it's most likely that she's moving away and she'll "wait a day to break the bad news" (i.e. notifying him that she's leaving once she's already gone). And, of course, the fact that she sees in him a fellow "idealist" and "dreamer" (terms commonly given to people with the INFP personality on the Myers–Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)) portends that she'll always be left wondering if they would've been perfect together.

Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."
