Lyrics in other Languages

The musician Voltaire has a song mocking the current craze of German lyrics. We don't understand them, but we still mouth the incomprehensible words while thrashing about on the dance floor -- even if they're singing about how they're going to bugger us if we dance to their music. Ein! Zwei! Drei! Vier! Arbeit macht frei beer! It's pretty damned funny.

Neuroticfish's lyrics are in English. I wish they weren't.

I step into a room
With mirrors of disguise
My teeth begin to flicker
My fingers become eyes

At least if they were in German, I would be blissfully ignorant of how damned stupid they are. As it stands, the music is great but it's embarrassing to listen to.
