FAKK

Check dein Limit Alter, komm mir nicht mit Scheiß
Dein Credit, deine Skills, dein Ding, dein Hype
Du bist smarter als die Polizei erlaubt
Geil, dein Style hast du bei HUGO abgeschaut
 
Du bist die Lichtgestalt, ein echter Hobbyhitler
Fängst gern Kriege an, früh morgens über Twitter
Raus aus der Luxuslimo, rein in den Jet
Staatsmacht, Pornoparty, ganz schön fett
 
Du bist Megachef, du musst ein Killer sein
Und kommt es megakrass, ziehst du dir noch mehr rein
Du fährst voll Ferrari mit den Bitches an der Bar
Alles nur vom feinsten, Alda
Komm klar
 
FAKK, du gehst mir auf den Sack
FAKK, ich hasse dich und dein Pack
FAKK, Bruda, weißt du wer ich bin?
FAKK, ich FAKK dein Ding
FAKK, ich hasse deinen Shit
FAKK, bring besser deine Mudda mit
FAKK, Alda, weißt du wer ich bin?
FAKK, ich FAKK dein Ding
 
Pump dich groß Alda, blas dich richtig auf
CumEx mit Sex, leg noch 'ne Mio oben drauf
Staatsfeind Nummer 1, du harter Allesficker
Endboss, kleiner Mann, die ganzen Nichtsblicker
 
Du lebst dein Überleben in deinem Irrenhaus
Träumst von Weltmacht, zeigst uns die Ghettofaust
Du gehst voll drauf, nur von oben mit dabei
Immer gleich zu haben für jede schöne Schweinerei
 
Du bist Supershit, du musst ein Killer sein
Die Welt ist nicht genug, komm, schlag sie kurz und klein
Too big to fail, voll ich-besoffen, high
Alda, kannst du kein Spaß?
Ich bring's dir bei
 
FAKK, du gehst mir auf den Sack
FAKK, ich hasse dich und dein Pack
FAKK, Bruda, weißt du wer ich bin?
FAKK, ich FAKK dein Ding
FAKK, ich hasse deinen Shit
FAKK, bring besser deine Mudda mit
FAKK, Alda, weißt du wer ich bin?
FAKK, ich FAKK dein Ding
 
Du machst dich groß, was soll das sein?
Ich blas dir deinen Bullshit raus
Und schick dich wieder heim
Zur Mama heim
Zur Mama heim
 
FAKK, du gehst mir auf den Sack
FAKK, komm, mach dich weg, schieb ab
FAKK, Bruda, weißt du wer ich bin?
FAKK, ich FAKK dein Ding
FAKK, ich hasse deinen Shit
FAKK, bring besser deine Mudda mit
FAKK Alda, schau mal richtig hin
FAKK, ich FAKK dein Ding
FAKK, ich FAKK dein Ding
FAKK

You’re smarter than the police allow

You’re the shining light a real hobby Hitler
Love starting fights on Twitter early in the morning
Out of the luxury limo and right into the jet

And when they kick in really hard1, you snort even more
You drive a Ferrari with the bitches from the bar

Public enemy number 1, you tough fucker
End boss, little man, all the blind ones
 
You live your survival in your madhouse
Dream of world power, show us the ghetto fist
You fall apart only to be along for the ride
Always there for every beautiful scandal
 
You're supershit, you have to be a killer
The world is not enough, come smash it to pieces
Too big to fail, intoxicated by myself, high

The last line of “FAKK ich FAKK deinen Shit” should be “FAKK ich hasse deinen Shit”. Not sure why they have FAKK instead of hasse in the lyrics on their YouTube post but they say hasse not FAKK there 🤷🏻‍♀️

So, I’ve been doing some digging online trying to figure out the “cum ex mit Sex”, line, and I’m pretty sure it’s referring to CumEx, a huge tax scandal that was based in Germany.

Thank you, added it as tax fraud in the hungarian version.

Thank you so much!

Hi!
Just finished the hungarian translation, your work was really helpful, thank you. Yet, after two hours of english-german slang searching I have some differences as well:
1. Your forget to translate "komm mach dich weg schieb ab" and "Alda schau mal richtig hin" in the last refrain.
2. "besoffen high" misses a comma, I think it should be "drunk and high", otherwise, high is pointless.
3. "Alda blas dich richtig auf" is I think "dude, get sucked properly".
4. " Endboss kleiner Mann die ganzen Nichtsblicker" gave me a headache. I translated it "The final boss, the little man, everybody is confused"
The boys were not kind to us Teeth smile

Thank you so much for all the comments! This is definitely the hardest Eisbrecher song I've ever translated! Regular smile

>"... blas dich richtig auf" means smth. like: "inflate your ego"
>"... voll ich-besoffen, high" means smth like " just excited about yourself, high"
>" Alda, kannst du kein Spaß?" = "Dude, don't you know how be funny?" (suggestion)

Thank you, modified, the hungarian one. Can you help with "Endboss kleiner Mann die ganzen Nichtsblicker"? In the original lyrics, under the video, there are no commas, so how should it be understood?

LilmonLilmon    Thu, 21/01/2021 - 15:39

It seems like there are no commas in the lyrics at all. I don't really understand why they decided to do that since it makes it harder to read, and from a grammatical point, it's incorrect to leave out some of those commas. But it's their song, so it's their artistic freedom to do so.

For better understanding, I would definitely add the commas, so it reads "Endboss, kleiner Mann, die ganzen Nichtsblicker" since it seems to be an enumeration.

Endboss -> final boss, like in a video game

kleiner Mann -> literally small man or little guy, it's used in a political sense here, so it describes an ordinary person who is not wealthy, famous, or powerful, like when politician say that they make politics for the little guy, and not (just) for the social elite.

Nichtsblicker -> it comes from "etwas blicken" which is a casual way of saying "to understand" or "to realize" and "nichts" (nothing), so a Nichtsblicker is a person who has no idea what's happening around them. (I think it's also used in a somewhat political way here. My take is that the whole verse (at least in some parts) describes someone who is very rich and uses his money to exercise (political) power. So this person is quite the opposite of the little guy who are the "Nichtsblicker" because they don't know what the rich and powerful ones do behind closed curtains. So I personally think "the blind ones" might actually be a good translation for that.)

Hello anyone who reads the comments. May I ask for some help with a line? The line "Und kommt es megakrass, ziehst du dir noch mehr rein" confuses me. Can someone explain it to me and why it becomes "And when it's going great you pull yourself in deeper". Thank you!

LilmonLilmon    Thu, 21/01/2021 - 15:40

I think that line is not translated correctly. "Sich etwas reinziehen" is a very casual way to say that you're "consuming" something very quickly. You can use that expression with food, tv shows, but also with drugs. So "Ich ziehe mir einen Burger rein" means something along the lines of "I'm scarfing down a burger", and "sich eine Line reinziehen" means " to snort a line".

I'm tempted to think that, in this context, it refers to drugs, so I'd suggest:

-> And when they (the drugs) kick in super hard, you snort even more (lines).

HoffnungHoffnung    Wed, 20/01/2021 - 15:56

My mistake! I thought "rein" meant "in" in this sentence. Thanks so much for the correction, that makes so much more sense! Teeth smile

LilmonLilmon    Thu, 21/01/2021 - 15:42

No worries. Glad I could help Regular smile

I'd say "rein" is more of a colloquial form of "hinein" or "herein".

“Hobby Hitler” sounds colorful. What is ams the why and what does it mean?

sarcasmcupcakessarcasmcupcakes    Thu, 04/02/2021 - 11:49

I'm thinking a reference to the rise of the alt-right across the world. The AfD Party in Germany, who are just this side of the Nazis.
