Covenant: Der Leiermann (2000)

Der Leiermann
(автор текста: Wilhelm Müller [1794-1827])


Drüben hinterm Dorfe steht ein Leiermann
Und mit starren Fingern dreht er, was er kann.
Barfuß auf dem Eise wankt er hin und her
Und sein kleiner Teller bleibt ihm immer leer.

Keiner mag ihn hören, keiner sieht ihn an,
Und die Hunde knurren um den alten Mann.
Und er läßt es gehen alles, wie es will,
Dreht, und seine Leier steht ihm nimmer still.

Wunderlicher Alter, soll ich mit dir geh'n?
Willst zu meinen Liedern deine Leier dreh'n?


We break down

We break down.


Like Tears In Rain

Go to the empire state and watch the city lights,
Hear the noise of millions struggle in the sprawl,
Stare into the sky, we're few and far between:
Black eyes full of stars, wide with memories.

Every street I ever walked,
Every home I ever had,
Is lost.

Every flower I ever held,
Every spring I ever had,
Has dried.

Every man I ever knew,
Every woman I ever had,
Is gone.

Everything I ever touched,
Every thing I ever had,
Has died.

Lie down in the park and watch the satellites,
Hear the children sing just a breath away,
Dance in the heavy air along the interstate,
Black lung full of fumes, choke on memories.

Every street I ever walked,
Every home I ever had,
Is lost.

Every flower I ever held,
Every spring I ever had,
Has dried.

Every man I ever knew,
Every woman I ever had,
Is gone.

Everything I ever touched,
Every thing I ever had,
Has died.
