WHOEVER ATTACKS HAS TO B

restless with a constant buzz drinking lots we're guests didn't
drop in by coincidence

jumping trampoline holding glasses drive away your dizzy spell pick up splinters
with your toes what you break you have to charge

meat and fruit are chilling in the cooler in case you still want
to call the seedlings fruitful in the spring

close the pits with clots beforehand who's the
murderer here who

WIE AANVALT MOET B

rusteloos in het gestage spetteren zuipen tonnen wij zijn immers te gast niet
door toeval aangespoeld

spring trampoline met glazen drijf je zooitje af grijp bij de lurven met blote
tenen splinters wat je instampt moet je bestormen

vrucht en vlees zijn stil in de koeler voor het geval je later toch in
een voorjaar tegen de spikkels pootplant zegt

vooraf met de kluiten kuilen dichtgooien wie is hier de
moordenaar wie

WER ANGREIFT MUSS B

rastlos in dem steten rauschen saufen viel wir sind ja gast nicht
durch zufall zugeschwemmt

springe trampolin mit gläsern treibe deinen schwindel ab krall
mit bloßen zehen splitter was du eintrittst musst du stürmen

frucht und fleisch sind still im kühler falls du später doch in
einem frühjahr zu den sprengseln setzling sagst

vorher mit den klumpen gruben schließen wer ist hier der
mörder wer
