Und dann ging’s immer stromabwärts. Dann kamen da so Stromschnellen. Genauso ist das jetzt auch. Man rettet sich von einer Scholle zur anderen.’ ‘Anständig ertrinkt man nicht.’”
Translated to English :
“‘Was such a river. And then a young girl has rescued herself from one ice-floe to another. But the ice-floes became smaller and slowly melted away. And then it only went downstream. Then were there rapids. It is like that now. One rescues oneself from one ice-floe to another.’ ‘One doesn’t drown being proper.’”

KNIVES (Oh How We Laughed)
Sample used on the live recording “Oh How We Laughed”.
« Morde? Sie sind ja – ein schäbiger Lump »
Vindicative voice of Judge Roland Freisler, who noticeably presided to the trial of members of the White Rose, students opposing the nazi regime, and sent us to the guillotine. Freisler used to verbally humiliate his “victims” during their trials.
The quote is traken from the trial of Ulrich Wilhelm Graf Schwerin von Schwanenfeld. He was an opponent to the nazi regime who advocated for the renewal of Germany according to Christian-socialists principles. He thought Hitler had to be killed to overthrow the regime and that the aristocracy had to act as an example by starting a “revolution from above”.
He maintained contacts with the Abwehr circle in Kreisau and served as a liaison agent with conspirators like General Ludwig Beck, Dr. Carl Goerdeler, Count Ulrich von Hassell, General Hans Oster, General Siegfried Wagner, Johannes Popitz and Jens Jessen. He also helped Colonel Claus von Stauffenberg, who attempted a coup d’état in 1944, and was a close friend of count Peter York von Wartemburg and count Fritz-Dietlof-Dietlof von der Schulenberg
In 1943-44, he became convinced that a coup would no longer save Germany from reddition, but kept calling to the assassination of Hitler. He was arrested following Operation Valkyrie, 20 July 1944, and was sentenced to death and hung in the prison of Plotzensee on 21 August 1944.
Schwerin: “Ich dachte an die vielen Morde …” /
Freisler (schreiend): “Morde?”
Schwerin: “Die im In- und Ausland …”
Freisler: “Sie sind ja ein schäbiger Lump! Zerbrechen Sie nicht unter Ihrer Gemeinheit! Ja oder nein? Zerbrechen Sie darunter?”
Schwerin: “Herr Präsident!”
Freisler: “Ja oder nein? Geben sie mir eine klare Antwort!”
Freisler: “Sie können auch gar nicht mehr zerbrechen, Sie sind ja nur noch ein Häuflein Elend, das vor sich selber keine Achtung mehr hat.”
Freisler: “Were you not particularly much in action in West Prussia?”
Count Schwerin: “Yes.”
Freisler: “In other words, you were privileged to liberate your own homeland, as a soldier of our Fuehrer.”
Count Schwerin: “Herr President, the political experiences that I underwent personally resulted in several kinds of difficulties for me. I worked for Germanism for a very long time in Poland, and during that time I experienced a back-and-forth attitude toward the Poles. That is a…”
Freisler: “In any case, is the back-and-forth something that you can blame National Socialism for?”
Count Schwerin: “I thought of the many murders…”
Freisler [yelling]: “Murders!?”
Count Schwerin: “At home and abroad”
Freisler [yelling]: “You really are a low scoundrel! Are you breaking down under this rottenness!? Yes or no!? Are you breaking down under it!?”
Count Schwerin: “Herr President!”
Freisler: “Yes or no, a clear answer!”
Count Schwerin: “No.”
Freisler: “Nor can you break down any more. For you are nothing but a small heap of misery that has no respect for itself any longer.”

- N’efface pas les yeux des gens
- C’est ce qui tient encore en vie
- Leur sublime folie
- Leur sublime folie
- Train de vie
- Train de vie
This song in French is taken from the end of 1998 movie “Train Of Life”.
The film starts off with a man, named Schlomo (Lionel Abelanski), running crazily through a forest, with his voice playing in the background, saying that he has seen the horror of the Nazis in a nearby town, and he must tell the others. Once he gets into town, he informs the rabbi, and together they run through the town and once they have got enough people together, they hold a town meeting. At first, many of the men do not believe the horrors they are being told, and many criticize Schlomo, for he is the town lunatic, and who could possibly believe him? But the rabbi believes him, and then they try to tackle the problem of the coming terrors. Amidst the pondering and the arguing, Schlomo suggests that they build a train, so they can escape by deporting themselves. Some of their members pretend to be Nazis in order to ostensibly transport them to a concentration camp, when in reality, they are going to Palestine via Russia. Thus the Train of Life is born.
On their escape route through rural Eastern Europe, the train sees tensions between its inhabitants, close encounters with real Nazis as well as Communist partisans, and fraternization with gypsies, until the community arrives just at the frontlines between German and Soviet fire.
Its ends with the voice-over of Schlomo himself, who tells the stories of his companions after the arrival of the train in the Soviet Union: Some went on to Palestine, some stayed in the Soviet Union, and some even made it to America. As he is telling this, a cut to a close-up of his face happens as he says, “That is the true story of my shtetl…”, but then the camera makes a quick zoom-out, revealing him grinning and wearing prisoner’s clothes behind the barbed wire of a concentration camp, and he ends with, “Ye nu, almost the true story!” Thus, it is implicated that he became mad because of having seen most of his companions exterminated, having made up the whole story for himself in his lunacy.

RUNES & MEN (Brown Book)
Voice of nazi Adolf Wagner :
“Es gibt keine Revolution als Dauererscheinung, die nicht zur vollkommenen Anarchie fuehren muesste. So wie die Welt nicht von Kriegen lebt, so leben die Voelker nicht von Revolution. Es gibt nichts Grosses auf dieser Erde, das Jahrtausende beherrschte und in Jahrzenten entstanden waere. Der groesste Baum hat auch das laengste Wachstum hinter sich. Was Jahrhunderten trotzt, wird auch nur in Jahrhunderten stark.”
“There is no permanent revolution that does not have to lead to complete anarchy. Just as the world does not live from wars, the people do not live from revolution. There is nothing big on earth that has ruled for millennia and that would have arisen in decades. The largest tree has also grown the longest. What defies centuries only becomes strong in centuries. ”
