Some Finnish lyrics can be found as well. I asked Der Galgen regarding politic and the band since I wondered and on May 27, 2009, the band replied me the following : "Greetings, Dragonhead. No, we do not represent any of the political institutes, our lyrics are not connected with any kind of ideas or parties. We sing fairy tales - sometimes funny, sometimes scary".
