Actually it ISNT sprocket it is Bugs in the software, as it is saying as the 99 red baloons float up, East Germany reads them as incoming weapons and a nuclear war between the East and West ensues. Yw

Nena have said that it's about total nuclear destruction across the world brought about by 99 red balloons. An airbase sees the red balloons and doesn't know what it is so it attacks its enemies and a full world war starts. That's it.

The song is about the guitarists fear of what should happen if something flew over the now destroyed Berlin Wall

jimw are you serious? Just because you work in analysis doesn't mean the lyrics are wrong. It's just a street where the ministers meet. Makes five hunder billion times more sense.

This song was written about The Berlin wall, at the time of its writing, the Berlin wall was still in place but protesters began talking about it, Nena is not from Germany, shes a dane, she wrote it in german as tribute the people afflicted by the wall
