Du kommst hier nicht mehr raus

(Links, rechts, geradeaus)
(Links, rechts, geradeaus)
(Links, rechts, geradeaus)
(Links, rechts, geradeaus)

Der Wahnsinn hat mich eingesperrt
Und deine Heile Welt verzerrt
Hat sich in deinen Kopf gepflanzt
Lauf', Kind, lauf', so schnell do kannst

Du weißt nicht mehr, wer du bist
Du weißt nicht mehr, was Liebe ist
Dein Spiegelbild hat sich entstellt
Niemand ist hier, der zu dir hält

Klopf, klopf, lass' mich rein
Lass' mich dein Geheimnis sein
Klopf, klopf
Klopf klopf
Klopf klopf, lass' mich rein
Lass' mich dein Geheimnis sein
Klopf klopf, lass' mich rein
Lass' mich dein Geheimnis sein

Links, rechts, geradeaus
Du bist im Labyrinth

Keiner kann dir sagen, welche Türen die richtigen sind
Mein verlorenes Kind
Links, rechts, geradeaus
Du bist im Labyrinth

Keiner kann dir sagen, wer die Guten und die Bösen sind
Mein verlorenes Kind

Du hast mich oft aus dir verbannt
An meinem Zorn dein Herz verbrannt
Dein zweites Ich, die zweite Haut
Hab' ich in deinem Kopf erbaut
Wenn ich in deine Seele tauche
Und dich für meine Lust gebrauche
Dann werd' ich deine Sinne blenden
Das Spiel kannst nur du selbst beenden

Klopf, klopf, lass' mich rein
Lass' mich dein Geheimnis sein
Klopf, klopf

Klopf klopf, lass' mich rein
Lass' mich dein Geheimnis sein
Klopf klopf, lass' mich rein
Lass' mich dein Geheimnis sein

    General CommentI believe this song is about being trapped within ones own mind. Insanity sets in, you become lost, you ban things from your mind, and a second personality is born but does nothing but get you even more lost, and laughs in your pain.

    General CommentLeft right straight ahead
    You're never getting out
    Left right straight ahead
    You're never getting out

    Insanity has imprisoned me
    And distorted your perfect world
    has planted itself in your head
    Run child run as fast as you can

    You dont know anymore who you are
    You dont know anymore what love is
    Your reflection has disfigured itselt
    No one is here to hold you

    Knock knock, let me in
    Let me be your secret
    Knock knock-knock knock
    knock knock let me in
    Let me be your secret
    knock knock let me in
    let me be your secret

    left right straight ahead
    you are in the labyrinth
    left right straight ahead left right straight ahead
    None can tell you which doors are the right ones
    My lost child
    left right straight ahead
    you are in the labyrinth
    left right straight ahead left right straight ahead
    None can tell you who is good or evil
    my lost child

    You have often banned me from yourself
    In my anger your heart is burned
    Your second me, the second skin
    I have built in your head

    When I dive into your soul
    and use you for my lust
    then I will blind your senses
    Only you yourself can end this game

    Knock knock, let me in
    Let me be your secret
    Knock knock-knock knock
    knock knock let me in
    Let me be your secret
    knock knock let me in
    let me be your secret

    left right straight ahead
    you are in the labyrinth
    left right straight ahead left right straight ahead
    None can tell you which doors are the right ones
    My lost child
    left right straight ahead
    you are in the labyrinth
    left right straight ahead left right straight ahead
    None can tell you who is good or evil
    you are in the labyrinth
    you are in the labyrinth

    Knock knock, let me in
    Let me be your secret
    Knock knock-knock knock
    knock knock let me in
    Let me be your secret
    knock knock let me in
    let me be your secret

    left right straight ahead
    you are in the labyrinth
    left right straight ahead left right straight ahead
    None can tell you which doors are the right ones
    My lost child
    left right straight ahead
    you are in the labyrinth
    left right straight ahead left right straight ahead
    None can tell you who is good or evil
    my lost child

    left right straight ahead
    you are in the labyrinth
    left right straight ahead left right straight ahead
    None can tell you which doors are the right ones
    My lost child
    left right straight ahead
    you are in the labyrinth
    left right straight ahead left right straight ahead
    None can tell you who is good or evil

    Left right straight ahead
    You're never getting out
    Left right straight ahead
    You're never getting out

    General CommentI think this song is about child abuse. Perhaps the child is being abused by a close family member ("none can tell you who is good or evil", "you don't know anymore what love is"). And all the "left right straight ahead" implies that the child is trapped in the child abuse and can't figure out how to escape it without, perhaps, hurting other loved ones.

    General CommentSo, i just watched the video to this song. The video is about Alis in wonderland, except the wonderland is a terribly cruel and tormenting place to this young girl.

    General CommentIt seems like there are implications that point towards the meaning being that of the path towards enlightenment, or of the stepping into unfamiliar realms. Having been taken into this strange place and adding to it isolation, insanity or the splitting of personalities follow. I like how the overwhelming emotions that the girl feels are conveyed by the lyrics' lack of hope. This song chose to focus on the initial reactions, rather than on the eventual outcome. What happens next are exercises in discernment. Since this is a path, the girl will eventually break down her self-imposed barriers to growth (products of fear arising out of ignorance). Only through experiential learning is this possible. You have to lose yourself to find yourself. Learning to listen to the "still small voice," intuition, or whatever the term will provide a foundation upon which the traveler can regain sanity and continue on the path towards self-evolution or maturity. Or I could be reading too many metaphysical books.

    General CommentThis song is not about child abuse. It's not about sex. It's also not about Alice in Wonderland, although this topic is used as a metaphor in the official Video. What is this song about then? The answer is plain and simple: Insanity.

    Now how do I reach this conclusion? I have an insane wife. We've been together for about 5 years, and all that time she took medication. Then she decided she would not need it anymore, and stopped taking them. Half a year later she had a psychotic thrust. And another half year later, a second one, far more severe than the first one. She's been in a mental hospital for several times now, for several months. She does not see she has this condition. She thinks she is healthy. But she has hallucinations and paranoia. She thinks the entire world is against her. I could not bear it, in order to protect myself, I had to leave her. I've never before experienced such a thing, and I do not wish this to happen to anyone. Not to become insane themselves, nor for a loved relative. I do no longer fear death, because I cannot imagine anything worse than watching the person you love above everything else turn insane, watch her struggling, and cannot do a damn thing to help her. In those months I was still with her, I've seen a glimpse of hell. So much for my personal background. Back to the song.

    This song used to be one of my all time favourites. Because of the turbulent nature of the past months and a drift into different genres I've not heard it in a long time. So when YouTube recommended it again I was like "oh yeah, that's a good one" - I've never really listened to the lyrics all that much. I mean, I was aware of them, but... After my experiences, I heard something different. Word by word, both in the German version and the English translation, it's what has happened to my wife. Every line, every single word I can relate to something my wife has done, how she behaves because of her condition. She is imprisoned in her own mind, by insanity, and her world is twisted beyond recognition. A living nightmare, from where she cannot escape. Insanity has indeed dived into her soul, and uses her for it's own purposes, and has trapped her, left her blinded in a world from where she cannot escape. She does not know, which doors are the right ones, or who she can trust or not. In fact, she does not trust anyone anymore, not even me. No-one can help her, only she can escape herself by taking her medication again. But she cannot see this. She mistrusts everyone and everything.

    Left right straight ahead,
    there's no way out, you're dead...

    I know now this has happened in the past. But I also know it was never this severe. I fear she will never find a way back out, and will be trapped inside her mind until she dies.

    I for myself... This used to be a favourite song, but when I listened to it just now, it gave me a real flashback and left my crying like a baby for minutes. I'm not sure I will ever be able to listen to it again. In any case I will avoid it in the foreseeable future.

    Thank you for reading.

    Song MeaningI get that you all think really deeply about it. But the song is about Pedophilia, and how this young girl is trapped in his labyrinth.
    *Yes, Alice in wonderland is a part of it too.
    But the main thing is that he is a pedophile who trapped this young girl for ever.
    Just saying
