lyrics

Lange musst du leiden, kennend nicht was,
bis plötzlich aus gehässig erbissener Frucht
deines Leidens Geschmack eintritt in dir.
Und da liebst du schon fast das Gekostete. Keiner
redet dirs wieder aus.

After this nothingness, after this passage
Through flesh and boundary.
After this wandering…
Abandoned landscapes
Barefoot marching,
Through a silence
Only god sees…
Through a violence
And a cessation
Of all sighs
And all summers.
A barren hearth
Where the roots
Twist inwards
Sink-and-dissipate.
Where dawn
Turns backwards
And flees into reversal
Words fall apart
Syllables dangle
From swollen veins,
Then empty
Like autumn
Like a house devoid of life
Like a house devoid of light

No dwelling
No life
No secret green
At the end of this night…
But then,
In a moment…

We stop
We stare
We turn
We fall prey…

“And where,
Where are the angels?
Strange dreams
In distant skies…”

“And where,
Where are the angels?
Shall they come swiftly
For you hand i…
For you and i?”

And how shall they
Receive us?
There hands like iron,
Held out to the sky…
