Eckstein, Eckstein
Alles muss versteckt sein

Wieder lieg' ich auf der Lauer
Denn wir spielen unser Spiel
Wieder wart' ich an der Mauer
Wieder steh' ich kurz vorm Ziel

Und ich höre deinen Atem
Und ich rieche deine Angst
Ich kann nicht mehr länger warten
Denn ich weiß, was du verlangst

Eckstein, Eckstein
Alles muss versteckt sein

Eckstein, Eckstein
Alles muss versteckt sein

Eins, zwei, drei, vier,
Fünf, sechs, sieben, acht, neun, zehn
Augen auf, ich komme!
Augen auf, ich komme!
Augen auf, ich komme!
Aufgepasst, ich komme!
Zeig dich nicht

Ständig ruf' ich deinen Namen
Ständig such' ich dein Gesicht
Wenn ich dich dann endlich habe
Spielen wir Wahrheit oder Pflicht

Eckstein, Eckstein
Alles muss versteckt sein

Eckstein, Eckstein
Alles muss versteckt sein

Eins, zwei, drei, vier,
Fünf, sechs, sieben, acht, neun, zehn
Augen auf, ich komme!
Augen auf, ich komme!
Augen auf, ich komme!
Aufgepasst, ich komme!
Zeig dich nicht
Versteck dich

Augen auf, ich komme! (versteck dich)
Augen auf, ich komme! (versteck dich)
Aufgepasst, ich komme!
Zeig' dich nicht!

Eins, zwei, drei, vier, Eckstein
Alles muss versteckt sein

Eckstein, Eckstein
Alles muss versteckt sein

Eckstein, Eckstein
Alles muss versteckt sein

Augen auf, ich - komme!
Augen auf, ich komme!
Augen auf, ich komme!
Aufgepasst, ich komme!
Zeig dich nicht
Versteck dich

Augen auf, ich komme! (versteck dich)
Augen auf, ich komme! (versteck dich)
Aufgepasst, ich komme!
Zeig' dich nicht!

    Song MeaningI heard, that the song is about a story, happening in France. There were children who killed grown-up people just for fun. In the music-video you can see children faces changing into monster faces and that shows the souls dark side ofe the children.

    Sorry for my bad englis...I'm learning in school =D

    General CommentWhat's the cornerstone thing though? Seems like there's another meaning behind that. Or is Eckstein just a convenient rhyme?

    General Commenti guess it's about an ambivalent relationship between two people. he wants to find her, probably he feels like dying without her: "Ständig ruf ich deinen namen
    Ständig such ich dein gesicht" (="I'm always calling your name
    I'm always looking for your face")
    but at the same time he wants to harm her (revenge?): "Wenn ich dich dann endlich habe
    Spielen wir wahrheit oder pflicht" (="When I finally have you
    We'll play truth or dare ")
    (but the lyrics don't show if it's about a woman. i guess it's basically about the feelings that you have when you like an trust someone and then he/she does something bad to you. then you have very ambivalent feelings about revenge.)

    General CommentI got the impression, combined with the music video, that it's more about a killer that hides in public. That, and I get the vibe of changelings off it in that respect as well, especially with the video and the "flashes" to what the kid's actually are which to me have the air of a glamour failure.

    General Comment"Eckstein, eckstein, alles muss versteckt sein" is a nursery rhyme children sing when playing hide and seek. It's an idiom, that's why it translates funny.
    "Sta:ndig ruf ich deinen namen, Sta:ndig such ich dein gesicht" is what you do during a hide and seek game.
    Masterchiefaph pretty much has it, I believe.

    General CommentI think, that this Song from Oomph is about a Guy, who is describing his Situation of abusing a Child.
    The Guy wants to play games like Hide and Seek and Truth or Dare with the child. He wants to abuse it, but dont want to hurt the child in a bad way. So he tries to put the abusive things he does into a playing and fun game. It's a simple way to influence the childish minds to get them to do, what you want them to do.
    He is addicted to the abuse, cause he cant hink about anything other.(Ständig ruf ich deinen Namen- Ständig such ich dein Gesicht)
    But he has to be very carefully about the things he does. ( Alles muss versteckt sein).Another hint, that he wants to "play" is the Rhyme of the Game (Echstein,Eckstein) He dont want to get caught. Cause he knows, that its the worst thing of all, what he is doing.

    But the Kids arent so dumb. They know everything. So they're planning to take revenge. Thats why the Childs Along the Video being portraited in Scenes, as ``Monsters``(The Scene, where the Child got a Knife) They know, what is going one and communicate without words under them.
    Because of the things which are going on, hey cant even trust any othplace er grown up anymore (The scene, where the parents place the cake on the table. The one kid wants to eat, but looks the other kid, who shakes his head. After that he puts the fork down.)
    In the end, tha band and Dero Goi are covered in an plastic foil. Cause the rest of the world shouldnt see things like that. Or even dont want to see thing like this. They close their eyes before it and ignore things Like abusive.

    IT IS REAL. DO SOMETHING. JUST DONT CLOSE YOUR EYES.
