Halber Mensch
Einstürzende Neubauten Lyrics


Halber Mensch
Halber Mensch
Geh weiter, in jede Richtung
Wir haben Wahrheiten für dich
Aufgestellt
Halber Mensch
In ihren Rissen leuchten unsre
Sender

Zu jeder vollen Stunde senden wir
Deine Werte
Geh weiter
Halber Mensch
Wir sorgen für dich
Wir nehmen für dich wahr
Halber Mensch
Wer geteilt ist, hat nicht mitzuteilen
Wir sorgen für dich
Wir nehmen für dich wahr
Wir sorgen für dich
Wir triggern deine Sinne
Rauschunterdrückung

Halber Mensch
Du siehst die Sender nicht
Und Kabel hängen
Längst verlegt
Aus deinen Nerven
Enden längs des Wegs
Geh weiter!
Sieh deine zweite Hälfte
Wer geteilt ist hat nicht mitzuteilen
Wir sorgen für dich
Wir triggern deine Sinne
Wir nehmen für dich wahr
Wir sorgen für dich
Dass die zweite Hälfte dich niemals trifft
Halber Mensch
Sieh deine zweite Hälfte
Die scheinbar grundlos
Schreiend erwacht

Schreiend näherkommt
Du siehst sie nicht
Bist gefesselt vom Abendprogramm
Geh weiter in jede Richtung
Wer geteilt ist, hat nichts mitzuteilen
Nach wie vor
Nach wie vor
Streng dich an
Streng dich an
Nach wie vor
Wir sorgen für dich
Wir nehmen für dich wahr
Wir sorgen für dich
Wir triggern deine Sinne
Wir sorgen für dich
Dass die zweite Hälfte dich niemals trifft
Halber Mensch
Mir nichts dir nichts
Steht da der Schnitter
Geh weiter
Stösst an
Geht nicht weiter

Du formlose Knete
Aus der die Lebensgeister
Den letzten Rest
Funken aussaugen
Fliegen angestachelt taumelnd, besoffen davon
Tanzen nutzlos in der Sonne
Mach dir nichts aus
Sie machen gar aus
Ein Bild für die Götter
Schönen Gruss vom Schnitter
Sicheln nicht sein!
Verwesen

35:27-35:59 No sounds
I'm not sure if this is a part of the song, gap in the album itself or uploader fucked up, lol, but during this time there is no sounds. Just a heads-up.

Ever since I divorced, I can finally listen to this music at full volume...I love all their records! My other big favorite band is Alien Sex Fiend...

JONATHAN SUTCLIFFE

@shannon townsend INDEED... RICHTER SCALE... WAS ALSO A VERY INTERESTING INTRODUCTION INTO THE WORKINGS OF THE BAND - AND I ENJOY THAT (PROBABLY A NOSTALGIC NOD TO MY YOUTH, I SUPPOSE)... BUT, YEAH, CRAZY GOTHDOM ASIDE - THE BAND HAD INTERESTING AND AMUSING NOTIONS ABOUT HOW COMPOSITIONS SHOULD BE MADE AND OBVIOUSLY MORE HIGH FALUTIN AND PRETENTIOUS IDEAS OR IDEALS CAME INTO IT. YOU CAN'T BEAT A BIT OF CLANK ON KLANK.. I SUPOSE THE BAND EMEANTED FROMT HE WORDS KLING KLANG OR SOME SUCH... A DUBIOUS NOD TO MR C THE MAGICIAN, I SUPPOSE...?

@JONATHAN SUTCLIFFE this was their best most striking album, imo

@György Parragi BUT IT'S THE SAME OLD RUBBISH NOW. NOT HALF AS GOOD AS WHEN THEY HAD THE ALL IMPORTANT PASSION AND IDEAS!! THEY HAVE NO IDEAS NOWADAYS... THEY LOST TOUCH WITH REALITY WHEN THEY EMBARKED ON A BALLET A LA THE FALL... I NEARLY BOUGHT THAT PARTICULAR VIDEO.. BUT THOUGHT BETTER OF IT. THE BAND HAVE ALMOST DESCNDED INTO POP MUSIC...THEY MAY AS WELL BE DEPECHE MODE... BUT GOOD LUCK TO YOU IF YOU STILL WANT TO SEE THEM LET ME KNOW HOW IT GOES...

György Parragi

@JONATHAN SUTCLIFFE They still exist today... They are on a European concert tour.. (May, June, July)

My favorite album of all time; bought cassette based solely on cover art, at age 16, changed my life.

@widM Funny, my eldest brother used to listen to a lot of strange and obscure music and he passed this knowledge on to me. Back then I lived in a rural city in Britany(france) and it seemed to me that nobody my age listened to the music my brother played to me. One night, I was 10 year old, he played to me "Armenia", from "Zeichnungen des patienten o.t." in his bderoom, in the dark, no light, as a psycho/sensory experience...it was! Did the same earlier with "Trance europe express" from kraftwerk...Later I met a guy who also had this special knowledge, he became my friend and we went on to hit any kind of metal stuff we could find in my father's garage. Good memories. I play drum now...

Nick Cave wrote a good response to a letter that he got from 10 years old boy who was asking him how would a lot of listening of Bad Seeds at that age affect him.
"Listening to Bad Seeds music at your age is like having a secret knowledge. When I was about your age I had a secret knowledge too. My eldest brother, Tim, used to listen to a lot of very strange and obscure music and he passed this knowledge on to me. Back then I lived in a rural city in Victoria and it seemed to me that nobody my age listened to the music my brother played to me. As far as I could tell they all listened to a whole lot of shit. It was like I carried a secret around inside me, a special knowledge about the world that my friends didn’t have. It was a secret power. I carried this secret power with me all through my kid-years until I went to a school in Melbourne, where I met three or four other people who also had this special knowledge – this secret power. These people became my best friends and we went on to form a band and tried, in our way, to take this knowledge and pass it on to the world.
This secret knowledge you have is a strength that lives only inside certain people. It is a strength that will inspire you to do wondrous things – like write stories, or draw pictures, or build rockets that fly to Mars. It will give you the courage to take on anything that the world might put in front of you. It’s a wild power that can be of untold value to the world. Your name, Ptolemy, is a warrior’s name. A boy full of inspiration with a warrior’s name! The world is waiting for you. Blow ‘em away, kid."
