Krieg dem Kriege.
Common sense, first victim of your war
died before the first shot fell
sheer wisdom to fight fire with fire –
the logic of our great authorities.

Count with me not as your servant
for I will not and never
Serve and suffer this soil
as I'm not one of your brainwashed spineless puppets

Honor my pride! - Honor my life!
The ones you turn to heroes
are clowns lipsticked with blood
Deny your medals.
Suffocate from your gold!

I reject your infant's sandpit game
make me not your puppet
for I will hold my strings alone...

("Non Serviam" represents our denial towards the insanity of war. The first line of the song is taken directly from the book of Ernst Friedrich by the same name, meaning "war against war" in German. The lyrics are also influenced by a poem written by Bertolt Brecht, "Die Legende vom toten Soldaten" (The Legend of the Dead Soldier). War is the worst of all social errors, forcing young people to obey blindly, to die for conflicts they haven't caused or devastate cities they haven't built. Apart from other failures of mankind, war didn't ever serve any good, but has only shown the stupidity of our species in its most disgusting form)
