Lyrics[edit]

    I'll pretend that I want you
    For what is on the inside
    But when I get inside,
    I'll just want to get out
    I'm your first and last deposit
    Through sickness and in hell
    I'll never promise you a garden
    You'll just water me down
    I can't believe that you are for real
    But I don't care as long as you're mine
    
    When I said we
    you know I meant me and
    When I said sweet
    I meant dirty (hey,hey)
    When I said we
    you know I meant me and
    When I said sweet
    I meant dirty (hey,hey)
    
    I'm unsafe, unsafe
    I won't repent and so
    I memorize the words to the porno movies
    It's the only thing I want to believe
    I memorize the words to the porno movies
    This is a new religion to me
    
    I'm a VCR funeral of
    Dead-memory waste and
    My smile is a chainlink fence
    that I have put up
    Love the enemy, my love is thee enemy
    The say they don't want fame
    But they get famous,
    When we fuck
    
    When I said we
    you know I meant me and
    When I said sweet
    I meant dirty (hey,hey)
    When I said we
    you know I meant me and
    When I said sweet
    I meant dirty (hey,hey)
    
    I'm unsafe, unsafe
    I won't repent and so
    I memorize the words to the porno movies
    It's the only thing I want to believe
    I memorize the words to the porno movies
    This is a new religion to me
    
    I never believed the devil was real
    But god couldn't make someone filthy as you
    
    When I said we
    you know I meant me and
    When I said sweet
    I meant dirty (hey,hey)
    When I said we
    you know I meant me and
    When I said sweet
    I meant dirty (hey,hey)
    When I said we
    you know I meant me and
    When I said sweet
    I meant dirty (hey,hey)
    When I said we
    you know I meant me and
    When I said sweet
    I meant dirty (hey,hey)
    
    You are the church
    I am the steeple.
    When we fuck
    We're all god's people
    You are the church
    I am the steeple.
    When we fuck
    We're all god's people

Trivia[edit]

  • The lines "I am a VCR / A funeral of dead memory waste" and "Love your enemy because love is the enemy" were first used in the vocal track of the short film Doppelherz, which was recorded on April 1, 2002. They were reworked as "I'm a VCR funeral of / Dead-memory waste" and "Love the enemy, my love is thee enemy" respectively.
  • The song's title may be a reference to the Lustgarten (meaning "Pleasure Garden") in Berlin; a park that initially played host to protests against the Nazi regime, but later on would host Nazi rallies wherein Hitler would address the masses.
  • The ending of the song is a play on a Children's Rhyme:

"Here is the Church This is the steeple Open the door See all God's people"
