Gamma Ray from the album “Hoodoo Man” (1972)

The World Is Pervated With
Ironie, Hunger And Corruption
The Eastern World And The Africans Too
Are Going To Repeat The History Of Our Wars
And Our Industry Supplies Them With Arms
Everybody Knows, But Apparently
Nobody Can Do Anything Against It
For Our Society Is On The Make

Well, Sometimes, Sometimes,
I Tried To Draw Up A List
I Tried To Find Out What Death Had Done
I Thought Of Honourable Murderers You Know
Like Jobbers And Mad Rabble-Rousers
At Anytime, Everywhere In The Whole World

If I Were A Gamma Ray, A Gamma Gamma
Gamma Ray Made Of Pure Existence
If I Were A Gamma Ray, A Gamma Gamma
Gamma Ray Mighty And Unfailing
I’d Radiate Love, To Fight Misery

Without A Body I Could Fly Round
The World Destroying Arms, Destroying Rockets
Mix-Up Complexions Of The Whole Human Race
We All Would Turn Into Chocolate People
Everybody, Everywhere In The Whole World
If I Were A Gamma Ray, A Gamma Gamma
Gamma Ray Made Of Pure Existence
If I Were A Gamma Ray, A Gamma Gamma
Gamma Ray Mighty And Unfailing
I’d Radiate Love, To Fight Misery

“I love “Hoodoo Man” since 25 years or more,gamma ray is one of my all time favorites,Birth Control was the only heavy rock band from germany,alongside scorpions and lucifers friend,that had real professional appeal to conqere the world with their kind of guitar/organ sounds,as good as purple and sabbath,if not better!

The world’s desperated with irony, hunger and corruption
The eastern world and the africans, tooA
re going to repeat the history of all wars
And our industry supplied them with arms
Everybody knows but nobody can do anything against it
The fall of society is on the make

Well sometimes, sometimes
I try to drop a list
I try to find out what they have done
I thought of honorable murderers you know
Like Jonah’s hand must ??? around us
And anytime, everywhere in the whole world …Gamma Ray

Gamma Ray, Gamma Ray, Gamma Ray,Made of you existence,
Gamma Ray money and our failing
I’ve waited for to fire gamma ray.

Without body I could fly around the world
Destroying arms, destorying rockets
Mixx all complexions of the whole human race
We all would turn to swallow people
Everybody, everywhere in the whole world

For all music lovers out there, This one is tough:

Which is the best Gamma Ray version?
