Die Toten Hosen - 180 Grad (English translation)

German

180 Grad

Wir brauchen hier keinen, der aus der Reihe tanzt,
keinen, der zuviel denkt und auch noch Zweifel hat.
Wir brauchen keinen, der ständig dagegen ist
und dem Fortschritt immer nur als eine Bremse dient.
 
Du warst viel zu lange viel zu unbequem,
doch wir bringen dich schon auf den richtigen Weg.
Ja, du wirst bald lernen, an deinem Platz zu stehn,
wir werden dir deinen Kopf wieder grade drehn.
 
Um 180 Grad.
In Reih und Glied mit uns ziehn.
Um 180 Grad.
 
Keiner entkommt unserem Intensiv-System,
in jedem Supermarkt läuft unsere Weichspül-Melodie.
An jeder Häuserwand ein Verhaltensbefehl,
wir polen alles um, was in die falsche Richtung geht.

180 Degrees

Here we don't need anyone who steps out of line
Anyone who thinks too much and also still has doubts
We don't need anyone who is constantly opposing
And who serves progress only as a brake.
 
You were way too uncomfortable way too long
But we are still bringing you to the right path
Yes, you will soon learn to stay in your place
We will turn your head straight for you again
 
For 180 degrees
Drawn into rank and file with us
For 180 degrees
 
Nobody escapes our intense system
In every supermarket there plays our bleach-melody
On every house wall a behavior command
We polarize about everything that goes in the wrong direction.

This was done rather speedily, so my apologies if I made any mistakes - please let me know and I'll fix them. I also like listening to the song itself when translating to make sure I got it right, but I couldn't find it on YouTube. Sad smile
