An old interview with Simone in German. Too bad, I don’t speak German and not knowing that much. Can someone translate this, any German friends here? Thanks.

"The event that inspired [We Are The Others] was the attack on Sophie Lancaster, who was a girl from the UK. She and her boyfriend were attacked by a group of youngsters purely because they looked goth. And Sophie didn’t survive the attack. So she was beaten to death basically because of the way that she looked, because of the way that she dressed. And with the song, I really wanted to do something because one of the things that bothers me the most is the way that society reacts to otherness. And by otherness, I mean not only the way you dress, but gender, sexuality, ethnicity, religion. And people react to otherness with violence. I wanted "We Are The Others" to be empowering for those that feel different, but at the same time, it’s a critique of this fear." - Charlotte Wessels on the meaning behind ‘We Are The Others’
