Heldmaschine & Hava Kagermann – Leben

Leben

[Intro]
Du hast sehr lang nicht mehr gelacht,
Ein Alptraum hat dich um den Schlaf gebracht.

[Strophe 1]
Die ganze Welt sah dabei zu
Und hat zum Teil gelacht.
Aus Angst machst du kein Auge zu,
Zum Kampf fehlt dir die Kraft.

[Chor]
Du willst nur leben
Und entkamst dem sicheren Tod.
Du willst nur leben,
Doch der Horizont bleibt Rot.

[Strophe 2]
Nach jahrelanger Todesangst,
Erfreut, dass du noch stehst.
Wirst du vom Hass
Aus blinden Augen übersät.

[Brücke]
Diese Pein hältst du nur aus,
Weil dich hier keiner kennt.
Und niemand hier ermessen kann,
Was es heißt, wenn die Heimat brennt.

[Chor: x2]
Du willst nur leben
Und entkamst dem sicheren Tod.
Du willst nur leben,
Doch der Horizont bleibt Rot.

[Sprache]
Just 2 hours ago, allied air forces began an attack on military targets in Iraq and Kuwait.
These attacks continue as I speak. Ground forces are not engaged.
This conflict started August 2nd when the dictator of Iraq invaded a small and helpless neighbor.
Kuwait - a member of the Arab League and a member of the United Nations - was crushed; its people, brutalized.

[Chor: x2]
Du willst nur leben
Und entkamst dem sicheren Tod.
Du willst nur leben,
Doch der Horizont bleibt Rot.
Live

[Intro]
You have not laughed for a long time,
A nightmare has made you sleep.

[Verse 1]
The whole world watched
And laughed in part.
For fear you do not turn a blind eye,
For the fight you lack the strength.

[Choir]
You just want to live
And escaped certain death.
You just want to live,
But the horizon remains red.

[Verse 2]
After years of dread,
Delighted that you are still standing.
Are you going to get hate?
Blindfolded.

[Bridge]
You just keep this pain
Because nobody knows you here.
And no one here can measure
What it means when the home burns.

[Choir: x2]
You just want to live
And escaped certain death.
You just want to live,
But the horizon remains red.
