Delving into the complexities of relationships, the song resonates deeply as Nienaber shares personal experiences of feeling trapped in cycles of futile efforts to mend broken connections. This poignant narrative reflects on the realisation that sometimes the most courageous act is to let go. Through his evocative lyrics and emotive melodies, Nienaber offers solace and insight to those navigating similar struggles. Prepare to be moved and enlightened by 'knip die tou' as a testament to Nienaber's artistry and emotional depth.

Tian Nienaber shares that "'Knip die Tou’ (meaning 'Cut the Cord') deals with relationships where you just keep trying, even when things seem not to work out.

I've been in a few relationships in the past where we would argue, break up, and then get back together. It seems like I'm trapped in a cycle where I keep encountering the same problems while trying to fix things that are obviously broken.

It was something I struggled with for a while, trying to come to a conclusion of sorts. I've always had the belief that something must work out—the classic 'love is enough' mindset. Unfortunately, that's not always the case. Sometimes relationships aren't meant to last, and since you can't address the issue, it's best to break up rather than further damage your relationship. Expanding it beyond what's necessary ultimately causes more harm than good for all parties involved."
