The Sniffer

This song is by Grobschnitt and appears on the album Illegal (1981).

Each morning when he wakes up from a nightmare sleep
He rushes into his reality
Then his head is full of duty, law and discipline
Injunctions, orders, punctuality

When he leaves the house
The sun could shine – he wouldn't see
'Cause he only has one reason why he lives
Everybody is suspicious – that's his destiny
And for many years his passion is – to sniff

Sniff at crooks, sniff at freaks
Sniff at snotty dough
Sniff at rats, sniff at queers, sniff at fools
Sniff at minds, sniff at hearts
Sniff at snuffy souls
Sniffy sneaks – never sniff at their rules

Sometimes there are moments
When he thinks about his life
Is it right when he fights for the principles
Others made for him
He has many answers – knows how to defense himself
He can't change, start again, he's a prisoner
Even locked in his dream

Well he's sniffing everywhere and taking photographs
When people meet he hides behind a tree
And he waits behind the curtains when they fight for love
A snapshot to protect "democracy"

When he does his job – the sun could shine he wouldn't see
'Cause he only has one reason why he lives
Everybody is suspicious – that's his destiny
And for many years his passion is to sniff...

Sniff at crooks, sniff at freaks
Sniff at snotty dough
Sniff at rats, sniff at queers, sniff at fools
Sniff at minds, sniff at hearts
Sniff at snuffy souls
Sniffy sneaks – better sniff at your rules
