"Help Us—Save Us—Take Us Away"

"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.


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]
