Blume
Einstürzende Neubauten Lyrics


:: chrysantemum ::

for you I'm a chrysantemum
supernova, urgent star

:: astera compositae ::

for you i'll be a dandelion
a thousand flowerettes in the sky
or just a drop in the ocean

if you know my name
don't speak it out
it holds a power - as before

:: liliacea ::

a lily of the valley
a flower of saron

:: helianthus annus ::

for you i even be a sunflower
do you hear my enlightening laughter?
another reason to cut off an ear

you know my name, do you not?
don't say it
for it is sacred, immovable - frozen

:: rosa, anemone et nymphea alba ::

i'll even be a waterlily,
a marygold, a rose
or a little thistle

:: euphorbia ::

a blue dahlia, a black tulip
that's where opinions differ
the scholars disagree

my name, should you know it
remains unspeakable
and is spoken - malediction

Rest in peace Anita Lane

John Davies

Anita lane's voice with blixa's was the perfect combination, you will be sadly missed mrs lane pure talent

Mary Tieck

Yes indeed. Her voice was really singular. I don't know how to describe it, except to say that it was like the animated painted lady's voice from Stephen King's Rose Madder. Really hauntingly beautiful.

Noel Dávila

Rest in peace, Anita Lane.

Keith Larsen

I remember as a teenager thinking this was the most profoundly beautiful thing created. Teenage me was right.

Tatiana Nikolaevna

I will never ever understand why Blixa is so criminally underrated. At least in the USA...

Mary Tieck

@Lee Tatum I'm not NECESSARILY accusing Bargeld of spreading the mark and number of the Beast. I used to work at a job where they assigned you a 3-digit passcode. My passcode was 666.

Mary Tieck

@Lee Tatum "Desire" seems to be a common theme throughout Bargeld's work. "Sehnsucht" from '81 literally means unfulfilled desires, or something like that. Bargeld started out being overt about his obsession with desire. He got more understated over the years. Btw the Bible mentions an evil Prince of our time, who cares nothing about the desires of women. He and the Antichrist are one and the same. EN's logo of a circle with a central dot is a solar symbol. It's also the Mark of the Beast.

Mary Tieck

@Lee Tatum I agree. EN is not the highest-grossing band in history, but without hyperbole, their impact is of Biblical proportions.

Lee Tatum

@Mary Tieck My introduction to Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds came when I saw Wim Wenders film "Himmel über Berlin" (Wings of Desire, auf Englisch). As a teen, I couldn't believe the music featured in the film. Still amazing, 100 years later. They were my gateway group to Einstürzende Neubauten.
