Peter Fox - Alles Neu (dir. Daniel Harder)

Translated lyrics (via):

I burn my studio, sniff the ashes like cocaine.
I strike dead my gold fish, bury it in the yard.
I blow up my apartment, let go of everything I have.
My old life tastes like hard-bitten toast,
roast myself a splendid steak, peter cooks finest meat now.
I am the update, Peter Fox 1.1.
I want to shake it (go dancing), party, but my pond is too small.
I grow a new row of teeth as with a white shark.
Waxed, doped, polished new teeth.
I’m euphoric, and I have expensive plans.
I buy construction machines, excavators and road-rollers and cranes.
Jump at Berlin, press the siren.
I build beautiful towers of (audio-) speakers.
Basses massage your souls.
I am the wrecking ball of the g-g-g-German scene.

Hey, everything shines, so beautifully new.
Hey, if you don’t like it, make (it) new. (renew it)
The world is covered in dust, but i want to see where things are heading.
Climb the mountain of dirt, because at the top there’s a fresh wind.
Hey, everything shines, so beautifully new.

I’m tired of my old stuff, leave it rotting in a bag,
mothball the clothes and go shopping naked.
I’m completely renovated, girls have something to look at.
in good health, hard bodied, world champion in chess and boxing.
Only talk straight, give me a yes or a no.
Finished with folderol, i stop fooling around.
If i should ever smoke weed again, i’ll smash an axe into my leg.
Don’t ever want to lie again, want to mean every sentence like i say it.
My head explodes, everything has to change.
I look for the button, meet the powerful men.
Force the country into happiness, buy banks and networks.
Everyone goes crazy, trembling sheep and lambs.
I look better than Bono, and i’m a man of the people (average guy ?)
Ready to save the world, though that might be a little too ambitious.

Hey, everything shines, so beautifully new.
Hey, if you don’t like it, make (it) new.
The air is used up here, it’s hard for me to breathe.
Bye bye, i got to get out of here, the walls are getting closer.
The world is covered in dust, but i want to see where things are heading.
Climb the mountain of dirt, because at the top there’s a fresh wind.
Hey, everything shines, so beautifully new.
