Decade Null
That's one point seven thirty one acc
Say again set course for terminal
Once she starts to break off three one zero five two
Eleven thirty-seven Charlie Langdon (?) here we go
Now, and forevermore!

Everlasting In Union
Sudden halt of great machines
Silence that becomes a brick (?)

Mankind has endured many catastrophies, but none so great as the one
which faces it today. The economic crisis past the gate has brought
inflation, imbalance and chaos to the every corner of the globe. Some label
it the great recession, others are calling it...

Le Privilege Des Morts
La realite soit trop complexe
Qui vous permet de courir le monde sous une forme
A cause du role qu'il a vécu dans le passe
Une demande logique donne le sens le beau
Mémoire centrale
[Allez! Allez! Allez! ?]
Les telecommunications, peut-etre hier soir
ne viendra dans le futur, vous tournerez sans fin
où est la signification de l'ensemble
ne change le sens je vais maintenant
Quel est le privilege des morts?
L'amour, la vérité, les nuits en lumiere
Mais je ne sais pas encore
[Capital, de la douleur]

Ecoutez moi normaux!
Nous voyons la vérité que vous ne
pouvez plus voir!
La courage et la tendresse, la générosité et le
sacrifices, par le progrès de notre ignorant savoir

(Allez! Allez!)
Aller detruire est comme un cercle
Quel est votre secret? Dites-le-moi, dites-le-moi
[Capital]
Capital
[Capital, de la douleur]
Logique, de votre enigme, je trouverai
Quel est le privilège des morts, exactement,
dites-le-moi
La mort, la porte est bloquée
La porte est bloquée
La mort, la porte est bloquée

Hymn To The Black Sun
Rap it up! (x2)
I shine bright and shed light from afar
93 million miles to be explicit
8 light minutes if you're planning a visit
See I'm the big daddy and this is his system
My turn to burn so keep on listening
I give light when all around is dark
Your choice get sparked or mark my remarks
See ice couldn't hold me back
I fall through forty feet in one minute flat
Meet a solar controller, 'cause that what I was meant to be
'Cause I was a mystery
Decade is null
Decade is null!
(It's hot, it's hot, it's very hot)
I'm burning up now!
Rap it up!
(It's bright, it's bright, it's very bright)
I'm burning up now!
Decade is null, decade is null, decade is null
Check it out while I burn your skull
I'm burning up now!
Decade is null
Hold and praise your nearest superstar
I shine bright and shed light from afar
93 million miles to be explicit
8 light minutes if you're planning a visit
See I'm the big daddy and this is his system
My turn to burn so keep on listening
I give light when all around is dark
Your choice get sparked or mark my remarks
Decade is null, decade is null, decade is null
Check it out while I burn your skull
I'm burning up now!
Decade is null, decade is null
From one to all, hear this poem and
Try to understand the greatest power known to man
Am I a nuclear bomb, I'm that I make you look like a firecracker
Alpha and Omega, beginning and end
How can you claim I ain't God, my friend
My atomic magnitude is explosive
I could keep a planet in motion or roast it!
Decade is null, decade is null, decade is null
Check it out while I burn your skull
Into the sun!
I emit energy, over all wavelengths
From x-rays to radio waves
Being the most dominant body of the Solar System
I am the Earth Star
I'm burning up now!
Into the sun!
Hold and praise your nearest superstar
Into the sun!
I shine bright and shed light from afar
Into the sun!
93 million miles to be explicit
8 light minutes if you're planning a visit
I'm burning up now!
See I'm the big daddy and this is his system
Into the sun!
My turn to burn so keep on listening
I'm burning up now!
I give light when all around is dark
Your choice get sparked or mark my remarks
Into the sun!
See ice couldn't hold me back
Into the sun!
I fall through forty feet in one minute flat
Into the sun!
Meet a solar controller, 'cause that what I was meant to be
I'm burning up now!
Into the sun!
'Cause I was a mystery
Into the sun!
Into the sun!
Chain of carbon-nitrogen
Witness the power of chains
Into the sun!
Everything dies in fiery heat
Everything dies in fiery heat
I'm burning up now!
Everything dies in fiery heat
Everything dies in fiery heat... of the sun
I emit energy, over all wavelengths
From x-rays to radio waves
Being the most dominant body of the Solar System
I am the Earth Star

I fall, I fall!
Nuclear riders who only know
To go back regenerates will
They ride into battle of absence
In the place that parades from the soul
Strange attractors who cannot deny
What is already preordained
Gravity is not God's law
It's what prevents man's fall
I fall, I fall!
Does not know those who have lost faith
Ask what is it, real(?) before
To put yourself outside the range
A profound man's core
Nuclear riders who only know
To go back regenerates will
They ride into battle of absence
In the place that parades from the soul
I fall, I fall!

Regime Of Coincidence, State Of Gravity

Standing by.

What's wrong?
All right, contact... Thats it, something is touching
What's wrong?
All right, contact... cut the mindlock, cut the mindlock
What's wrong?
All right, contact... don't override here, this is critical.
What's wrong?
Back off for a second, just back off.

Take your sedation
Yes, fine.
Take your sedation
I'm taking etracene... excellent.
Take your sedation
Very good.
Take your sedation
My time is yours.

I need...
I need something stronger.
Take four red capsules, in ten minutes take two more. What's wrong?
What's wrong? Take your sedation.
I need something stronger.
Take four red capsules,
I need something stronger.
I need something stronger.
Could you be more... specific?

Our voices are not raised in any harmonious chorus
One idea...
Our voices are not raised in any harmonious chorus
But our differences are differences of emphasis!
We need a new unity!
We must first...
One idea could get us out of here!
We must first...
We need a new unity!
We must first choose a leader.
We need a new unity!
Could you be more...
We need a new unity!
Could you be more...
We must first choose a leader.
Could you be more...
We must first choose a leader.
Could you be more... specific?

Bonus track, LP and MC only

Steel Trust
Lonely days
Eternal nights
Sweet words of youth
In paradise
Where only emptiness
Remains the same
I love you more and more in pain
Quiet dreams
In golden cage
Were sent to us
From different age
To tell the story
Of love and hate
I wish I'd never seen your face before
Sleepless nights
The city lies
Dark blue shadows
On the wall
All the pictures
In my mind
I love you more and more in vain
Good and evil
Death, despair
All these pictures
Everywhere
Love has come and love has gone
I was left here on my own
Now it seems so far away
I love you more and more again
Again
Again
Again

Lyrics by Germania


Web page contributors - Michael Malevitch, Marina Neil







  Kapital released in 1992. Laibach turns its attention away from totalitarianism and warns the newly freed Eastern Bloc of Capitalism. Kapital is Laibach's rewriting or sequel to Karl Marx's Das Kapital to make it relevant again for the future. No cover versions, the single is Wirtschaft Ist Tot (The Economy Is Dead). The best song is possibly the bonus track which is not found on the CD version, Steel Trust by Germania - it would have made a good single. Almost as good is Kinderreich and is on the CD version - a reworking of this song can be found on the 300,000VK's album Also Sprach Johann Paul II. In tour Milan Fras sings the vocals including some of the samples.
