enjoy the crazyness of a friend of mine and me Far beyond the sea and distant lands Came men with thirty cars Had wanted to reach Wacken by night But the traffic was not on their side And as the line grew longer and longer The sweat ran down our cheeks The wheel was turned towards Hamburg The car flew up again Wacken and beyond! That's where the car will us guide For fame and for beer Set wheels for those lands so known! Lae and Syl, Eric, Tim and Sanne Were glad to be off the wheel Tabitha had drunk too much again Now hanging herself overboard The schweizischen twins were excited as always Adventure was their game Myself, Ingrid the Bastard was out to find my beer Wacken and beyond That's where the car will us guide For fame and for beer Set wheels for those lands unknown Who is "I" without a past? A river without a source? An event without a cause? Roads of different lengths Some longer, some shorter So many of them spun together The crones keep on weaving The algorithm of our lives Cause and effect, the fates of men We know the way to Wacken Upstream the river Weser You take us to the portage And further North Long is the way to Wacken Long are the rivers in the North Far lies the land that Ingrid And her company desire to reach Many dangers lie ahead Some of us may never return Rather sold as a slave to the bands Than chained to your tent, chained by your life! Wacken and beyond That's where the car will us guide For fame and for beer Set wheels for those lands so known!
