"Help Us—Save Us—Take Us Away"[1] is a song by industrial rock group KMFDM from their 1992 album Money. The "Schnitzel Mix" on the single is identical to the album version.

Reception[edit]

The Trouser Press Guide to '90s Rock described the singing of Dorona Alberti on the song as "Nietsche-goes-disco chant[ing]" and the song's steel guitar as "lonesome".[2] Jeff Bagato of Option magazine called the song "a fascinating and oddly beautiful concoction".[3]
