“They’re the food and we’re the hunters!”
The only German line in this song. Just like the anime’s main character’s name is German (Eren Jeagar) the song also gives this German feeling, mixed with the language too.

According to a bad image of the CD booklet () it’s “Seid ihr das Essen? Nein, wir sind der Jäger!”
Nope I’m sorry to tell you that, but it’s ‘'Seid ihr das Essen? — Nein Wir sind die Jaeger! ’‘ Cause it means ’‘Are you the Food? — No we’re the hunters! ’‘ The other one doesn’t make any sense. btw I’m German:)
Considering the context, it sounds like one of those things where a commanding officer would ask a question and the subordinates would reply. “Are you the prey?"
"No, we are the hunters!” Makes sense to me. It shows their (the humans') will to survive.
i think that someone is asking them “are you the food”, and they respond with “ no we’re the hunters”. like a pep rally
It does make perfect sense.
Sie sind das Essen und wir sind die Jaeger =
They are the food and we are the hunters.
However, for context I like to transpose food with prey.
They are the prey and we are the hunters.
In this sentence it makes perfect sense, coming from the Scouting Legion.
However the correct sentence is up to your digression.
I may be terribly wrong.
guys, its “are you the food? no we are the hunters”.
because its like asking us, “are you the food” from a titans point of view probably, and we reply “no we’re hunters” you know??
it makes sense.
I’ve been hearing people say “Are you the food? No, we are the hunters!” It’s kind of confusing. The titans are the food?… I think it should go" Are WE the food? No, we are the hunters!
according to google translate, sind sie das essen? nein, wir sind der jager means: are you eating that? no, we are the hunter
good old google translate
“They’re the prey!We’re the hunters!”(Sie sind das Essen!Wir sind die Jäger!“(I have the soundtrack and the original lyrics and I’m a native german speaker >_>) Also his name is Eren Jäger or if you can’t write umlaut Jaeger …. xD
As a german native speaker: It means “They are the food and we are the hunters!”. It sounds like a paradox, but that’s what the titel want, I think: After the humans made out the weak spots AND were used to control the transformed titans (if there are more than eren jaeger), the pretty dumb titans will be the “prey” like animals on a hunt. And the prey is the food, so the titans will be the food for the hunters, even if the big guys disappear after getting slayed.
In the Funimation Attack on Titan Theme Song video, the Subtitles say “Sie sind das essen? Nein, wir sind das Jaegar!”
I am going with the animation studio on this one guys.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8OkpRK2_gVs

Lirically murdered Yeti83, so after Yeti “dies” all he’s remember is Madd Dogg’s voice, which he was listening to before he got “murdered”.
So drunk he does the opposite of what he’s supposed to do.
He just became better then the greatest, while everything people do is just yell for no reason.
Reference to the anime series, Death Note.
Also here’s a double entendre:
“Light a few L’s” means blaze some blunts or refers to Death Note’s characters Light(left) and L(right),
“It’s not like I’m mellow” means “It’s not like I’m soft” but also refers to Death Note’s Character, Mello
Shinigami are Angels of Death in Japanese mythology. They write the death date and circumstances of a person on a notebook, hence Death Note. The Shinigami played a big part in the series.
Everyone knows so it’s an overused argument so no need to fight over it.
Trite — Spoken to much of, overused etc
Tites — Short for Titans
Compliment to Madd DOgg and diss at Yeti83 meaning Madd Dogg is as good as Yeti’s girlfriend sucks at having ass.
If you listen to Canadian music(Justin Bieber) just close this and go.
Also Madd Dogg is from Albania.
I spit harder then any human can.
