Was macht ein Mann
Was macht ein Mann
Der zwischen Mensch und Tier
Nicht unterscheiden kann was

Er wird zu seiner Tochter gehen
Sie ist schon und jung an Jahren
Und dann wird er wie ein Hund
Mit eigen Fleisch und Blut sich paaren

Was - tust du
Was - fuhlst du
Was - bist du
Doch nur ein Tier

Was macht die Frau
Was macht die Frau
Die zwischen Tier und Mann
Nicht unterscheiden kann

Sie taucht die Feder in sein Blut
Schreibt sich selber einen Brief
Entseelte Zeilen an die Kindheit
Als der Vater bei ihr schlief

Was - tust du
Was - fuhlst du
Was - bist du
Doch nur ein Tier

English translate: Beast

What is a man
What is a man
Who's between man and beast?
Can't seperate the man
What

He will go to his daughter so late
She is young and she's such sweet bait
Just as if he were a dog
With his own flesh and blood he will mate

What do you
Feel in you?
What are you?
You are a beast!

What is woman
What is woman
Inbetween beast and man?
Can't seperate the man

She dips the feather in his blood
Writes herself so many lines
A lifeless letter from her childhood
As her father slept by her side

What do you
Feel in you?
What are you?
You are a beast!

    What makes a man?
    What makes a man?
    What separates man and beast?
    Can't separate the man
    [what? ]

    Late at night he will go to his daughter
    She is young; such sweet bait
    As though he were a dog
    He will mate with his own flesh and blood

    What's in you?
    What do you feel?
    What are you,
    But an animal?

    What makes a woman?
    What makes a woman?
    What separates man and beast?
    Can't separate the man

    She dips the quill in his blood
    Writes herself many lines;
    A lifeless letter from her childhood
    As her father slept by her side

    What's in you?
    What do you feel?
    What are you,
    But an animal?
