Songs in Ink (4)

Wir sind blind und taub und stumm
Nichts als Quatsch und Wucherung
In uns, um uns, um uns herum

(Tocotronic, »Wir sind viele«)

Their cryptic lyrics may be considered a trademark of the German band Tocotronic. The above could be translated as »We are blind and deaf and dumb, nothing but nonsense and excrescence, within us and around us«.
