Weiß & Schwarz (German for White & Black) is a work consisting of two albums by Germanhard rock band Böhse Onkelz. Both were released at the same time in 1993. The track numbering begins with 1 through 12 on Weiß and ends with 13 through 23 on Schwarz.
This song was written as a reaction of the attacks from neonazis on asylum-seeker houses in Mölln, Rostock-Lichtenhagen and Hoyerswerda. The press had seen some photos of the attackers, who wore Onkelz merchandise and wrote that the Onkelz were guilty for these attacks. The band wanted to make understood, that they condemn such attacks.
The song introduces with a broadcast news message (translated):
"Rostock. After the yesterdays excesses before the central approach place for asylum seekers in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania today also battled around 1,000 mostly young right-wing extremists against the police on the road. By the - in parts - civil war similarly riots the attackers had thrown with stones, bottles and fireworks against the safety men. More than 110 officials were partly heavily injured. The right-wing extremists, which came from the whole federal republic, broke into the floor of the asylum-seekers home, and ignited - with applause from around 2,000 merries - some apartments. The police arrested around 60 persons. The foreign countries reacted - in remembering to the national-socialistic Germany - to the continuous riots in the quarter of Lichtenhagen with concern about increasing stranger hatred."
Lyrics from the song:
"I see brown* shit killing ..."
"I hear stupid slogans from idiots and losers ..."
"Listen, folks and people: Hit yourself! Hate your neighbour for you want to be independent! Kill your brother! Rape your wife! You speak the same language, but you can't trust each other. 'Beautiful' new world - our enemies are we self. That's how dreams are dying". The central message is to stop wars all over the world.
"Schöne neue Welt" rather means "Brave new world" (as the novel by Aldous Huxley). The translation "Beautiful new world" however is a kind of one-to-one translation, showing the exact meaning of the German words (for better understanding).
So geht's Dir (Deine Hölle) & Das Messer und die Wunde
Both are written for the murderer of Andreas "Trimmi" Trimborn, a good friend of the band, who was stabbed by a Bundeswehr soldier in June 1990.
