Lyrics: The Futurist Manifesto based on F.T. Marinetti's 1909 Futurist Manifesto

The beauty of speed /
the love of danger /
movements of aggression /
feverish sleeplessness/
salto mortale /
serpents with explosive
breath / heat, glamour and prodigality/
the mysterious shutters of the impossible /
time and space died yesterday /
living in the absolute /
eternal, omnipresent speed /
we want to glorify war /
the nocturnal vibration /violent electric moons /
flood the cellars of the museums /
undermine the foundations of venerable towns /
art can only be violence, cruelty, injustice /
when we are fourty /
they will come againstus from afar /
but we shall not be there /
they will find us at one last winter’s night /
in a sad hangar echoing with the notes of monotonous rain /
they will crowd around us /
panting with anguish and disapointment /
their hearts will be drunk /
we will not listen /
standing on the world’s summit /
we launch once again our insolent challenge to the stars

Noise Orchestra: Thomas Köner
