Laibach Lyrics


The group Laibach was established in the year 1980 in
Trbovlje, an industrial-coal mining town in the centre of
Slovenia (YU).

Review about Laibach songs

    ------ About the song Life Is Life performed by Laibach

I guess Laibach as usual love to play with ambivalence. Its a mixed sort of things, an evident Nitzschean ponderation on life as a supreme force and the most valid one, and then comes the meaning of that existence and its "utility". There it is the dichotomy implied. On one hand the mere invidual living his existence for himself will get lost in his own self in the end, his existence dies within, he is just dust in the wind. On the other, his life and his power given to a greater good "the others" will replenish himself not with immortality but with the feeling that he contributed with a greater cause and effort and gave his life an immortal use. Of course this may be taken as an example of Totalitarianism (both right and left) and Laibach pretty well know that fact, but in the end the meaning of existence its union, as everything in the universe tends to unify and create bonds. The useful individuality is aware of his mortality and uses his own life power to both enhance his mortal power and give others a part. All other individualism is nihilism.

ALTHOUGH INSPIRATIONAL SOUNDING AT FIRST, WHEN THE END OF THE SONG I'M LEFT WITH THE FEELING THAT WEREE ALL JUST A BUNCH OF ANTS IN A COLONY WORKING ONLY FOR IT'S GOOD AND THE INDIVIDUAL MEANS NOTHING. LIFE SUCKS AND THEN YOU DIE!!!!!!

THANKS,

    ------ About the song I Dig A Pony performed by Laibach

It should say "Rolled a Laurie" instead of "Dig a pony" or "Dug a pony" like most web sites indicate.

    ------ About the song Das Spiel Ist Aus performed by Laibach

Unbearably intense, dark, violent and moody song. I recommend the shorter version which is available on ANTHEMS (2004) rather than the original which in included on WAT (2003). The shorter version has much better (I mean perfect) instrumentals.
