about

VIDEO (please share!): youtu.be/Djr3VDiQkTA

The song, as well as the video for "(Also Sprach) Franky", are inspired by a true story of Armin Meiwes, a contemporary German cannibal. Meiwes, using an Internet nickname Franky, found - via ads - Bernd Brandes, a man that dreamt about being killed and then eaten. What is more interesting, these guys started with the second thing, as was proven on the videos recorded by the cannibal.
 
According to the title, "(Also Sprach) Franky" tells the story from Meiwes' perspective.
Ian Giedrojć, Nihil Quest vocalist: "The whole thing was controversial from the very beginning, as everything was done upon mutual consent by both sides. Beside the macabre, there is also the question of personal restraint. In fact, Meiwes was punished because he had shocked the community, rather than because he had done harm to Brandes."
 
Once this thing emerged, cannibalism enthusiasts forums, where Meiwes used to publish, were closed immediately. However, it's still possible to find his posts on the Usenet (a popular discussion boards system, now less used). These are one of the original elements used in the video clip.

lyrics

(ALSO SPRACH) FRANKY

I watch the video of us together
Right now it's so hard to believe
Like a trip to another world
Full of perversion beyond extreme

I can't believe
I can't believe
It all did happen

Two haunted souls
So unlikely to come across
Breaking their rules
Thanks to computer miracle

Bizarre ritual won't leave my mind
Your words still ring in this room
This was our last supper
You were like Jesus when you said

Eat my flesh
Drink my blood
Let my life flow in you
Eat my flesh
Drink my blood
Just let my
Just let my life
Flow in you

Joy and peace filled my mind
As we shared your gift
I waited for this moment
All my sorry life

They will never understand
Why we went so far
Just because we're different
They want to wipe us out

Eat my flesh
Drink my blood
Let my life flow in you
Eat my flesh
Drink my blood
Just let my life flow in you

May they kindly say
Why is this a crime
We were both so happy
When you gave it all

I know they will come soon
To judge and destroy me
Self righteous barbarians
It's all beyond their minds
