Background

  • The idea of creating a song named Benzin has existed since 1999.
  • In March 2004, a song with the length of 2:58 entitled Student was found in the GEMA database. One of the lines sung in the song was "Alle bleiben stehen, alle wollen es sehen",[1] because of this it is speculated that the lyrics were based on Till's poem "Das Experiment" released in his book In stillen Nächten. In October 2005 Paul confirmed in an interview that the song was eventually reworked and subsequently released with new lyrics as Benzin.[2]

Lyrics

Album version

Ich brauche Zeit, kein Heroin
Kein Alkohol, kein Nikotin
Brauch keine Hilfe, kein Koffein
Doch Dynamit und Terpentin
Ich brauche Öl für Gasolin
Explosiv wie Kerosin
Mit viel Oktan und frei von Blei
Einen Kraftstoff wie

Benzin, Benzin
Benzin, Benzin, ja

Brauch keinen Freund, kein Kokain
Brauch weder Arzt, noch Medizin
Brauch keine Frauen, nur Vaselin
Etwas Nitroglyzerin
Ich brauche Geld für Gasolin
Explosiv wie Kerosin
Mit viel Oktan und frei von Blei
Einen Kraftstoff wie

Benzin, Benzin
Benzin, Benzin
Gib mir Benzin

Es fließt durch meine Venen
Es schläft in meinen Tränen
Es läuft mir aus den Ohren
Herz und Nieren sind Motoren, ja
Benzin

Willst du dich von etwas trennen
Dann musst du es verbrennen
Willst du es nie wieder sehen
Lass es schwimmen in

Benzin, Benzin
Benzin, Benzin
Ich brauch Benzin, Benzin
Ja Benzin, gib mir Benzin, ja
