This song appears as a Master Track.


The opening of the song is easy, but the fast chord sections can be tricky. They don't have to be strummed very fast, just consistently.

Lyrics and Translation[]

Original lyrics in German Approximate translation in English
In einer Welt, in der man nur noch lebt

Damit man täglich robotten geht
Ist die größte Aufregung, die es noch gibt
Das allabendliche Fernsehbild
Jeder Mensch lebt wie ein Uhrwerk
Wie ein Computer programmiert
Es gibt keinen, der sich dagegen wehrt
Nur ein paar Jugendliche sind frustriert
Wenn am Himmel die Sonne untergeht
Beginnt für die Droogs der Tag
In kleinen Banden sammeln sie sich
Gehen gemeinsam auf die Jagd

Hey! Hier kommt Alex!
Vorhang auf!
Für seine Horrorschau!
Hey! Hier kommt Alex!
Vorhang auf für ein kleines bisschen Horrorschau!

Auf dem Kreuzzug gegen die Ordnung
Und die scheinbar heile Welt
Zelebrieren sie die Zerstörung
Gewalt und Brutalität
Erst wenn sie ihre Opfer leiden sehen
Spüren sie Befriedigung
Es gibt nichts mehr was sie jetzt noch hält
In ihrer gnadenlosen Wut


Zwanzig gegen einen
Bis das Blut zum Vorschein kommt
Ob mit Stöcken oder Steinen
Irgendwann platzt jeder Kopf
Das nächste Opfer ist schon dran
Wenn du den lieben Gott noch fragst
Warum hast du nichts getan
Nichts getan?


Hey! Hey! Hey! Hier kommt Alex!
Vorhang auf für ein kleines bisschen Horrorschau!

In a world where lonely men live

So that someday they'll be succeeded by robots
The greatest excitement there is
Is the TV pictures at night
Everybody lives like in a clockwork
Programmed like computers
There's no one who can resist it
Except for a few frustrated youngsters
When the sun goes down in the sky
The day begins for the Droogs
They get together in packs
And go out for the hunt

Hey! Here comes Alex!
Raise the curtains!
For his horror show!
Hey! Here comes Alex!
Raise the curtains for a little bit of horror show!

In the crusade against the order
And this apparently perfect world
They celebrate destruction
Violence and brutality
From seeing their victims suffer
They get their satisfaction
They're no longer what they think they are
In their unleashed fury


20 take on one
'Til the blood starts gushing out
Be it with sticks or stones
Eventually, all heads will be blown
The next victim's already done
Even if you ask your dear God
"Why don't you do anything?
Will you do nothing?"


Hey! Hey! Hey! Here comes Alex!
Raise the curtains for a little bit of horror show!
