Lacrimosa: Feuer (2009)

Feuer

Dies ist Dein erster und Dein letzter Sieg
Dass meine Zeit ich opfer' - dass ich dieses schrieb
Doch Zeit ist eine Hure - gibt sich hin in Hast
Schon lange habe ich mich an Dir satt gehasst

Das ist Deine Zeit - das ist Deine Zeit - zu verbrennen
Das ist meine Zeit - das ist meine Zeit
Dich zu verbrennen
An diesem dunklen Ort wirst Du eines Tages sein
Ich schicke Dir das Feuer und dann höre ich Dich schreien

Mein Mitleid gebe ich nur den Bedürftigen
Ja - einsam ist es bei den Überheblichen
Dein Glas ist nicht halb voll und nein -
Dein Glas ist nicht halb leer
Du hast nur diesen Wasserrand
Auf dem Dein Glas zuvor mal stand

Langsam wird es Zeit - endlich wieder Zeit
Das ist nun die Zeit - es ist Zeit
Das ist Deine Zeit - das ist Deine Zeit - zu verbrennen
Das ist meine Zeit - das ist meine Zeit
Dich zu verbrennen
Deine Ignoranz - Deine Selbstgefälligkeit
Deine Besserwisserei - Dein Egoismus implodiert
An diesem dunklen Ort wirst Du eines Tages sein
Ich schicke Dir das Feuer und dann höre ich Dich schreien


I Lost My Star In Krasnodar

Something else was in this place
Something I will never meet again
Something we will always think of
I saw the glance in your eyes
Before it disappeared
And I saw the disillusion in your eyes
Your terrible confusion
I killed a star in Krasnodar
I didn't see the death between my lips
So sorry for the things I said - and did not say

I am - I'm not afraid
I am - I'm not afraid of you

So I was blind for what I saw
So I was deaf for what I heard
I lost my star in Krasnodar
So I am cold for what I felt
So I am dead for I'm alive
I lost my star in Krasnodar
In Krasnodar

Shine - shine - shine - my star
Shine - shine - wherever you are

You are not here in this place
For I know we will not meet again
Therefore I will always think of you
Why can't you just see:
I am no alien - don't you know?
I am as black as white
Always the one who's fighting for
Someone to hold
I killed your smile
I killed your belief
I killed the star of Krasnodar
I didn't see the death between my lips
So sorry for the things I did - and did not do

So I was blind for what I saw
So I was deaf for what I heard
I lost my star in Krasnodar
So I am cold for what I felt
So I am dead for I'm alive
I lost my star in Krasnodar
In Krasnodar

Shine - shine - shine - my star
Shine - shine - wherever you are


The Last Millenium

And it will always be my door,
The very day when I was born,
And it will always be my morning,
All the years affect this yearning,
When I was restless, kind of homeless,
Fighting for often and understanding,
Looking out for something stable,
Tired of moving around and around,
Now I'm here to stay where I belong!

Hey, hey!
Today I say goodbye!
Waiting for more to come,
Welcome the Last Millennium,
Welcome, you've got to wake up,
This is the Last Millenium
.
Hey, hey!
Today I say hello!
This is, this is,
This is the Last Millennium!

And this will always be our century,
Our childhood and our youth.
And this will always be our own good-bye
To everything that we made true.
A brand new age will flush our beautiful life
But if one change the human race
Just the tools of mankind's arrogance
Will only quicker and sooner bring despair,
That's going to stay and everything alive brought to its end

Hey, hey!
Today I say goodbye!
Waiting for more to come,
Welcome the Last Millennium,
Welcome, you've got to wake up,
This is the Last Millenium
.
Hey, hey!
Today I say hello!
This is, this is,
This is the Last Millennium!

And when I look upon my life I can see:
That every tear I've cried was the strength in my soul.

Nothing but mercy
Was guiding me through pain.
And nothing but mercy
Was keeping me the same.
It was mercy, that I've gained,
Once I've gained.
And it was mercy,
That I'm still alive!

And when I look upon my life, I can say:
I thank you from my heart for the mercy that I've got...
For the mercy that I've got!

Hey, hey!
Today I say goodbye!
Waiting for more to come,
Welcome the Last Millennium,
Welcome, you've got to wake up,
This is the Last Millenium
.
Hey, hey!
Today I say hello!
This is, this is,
This is the Last Millennium!

Welcome, you've got to wake up,
This is the Last Millenium.


Hey, hey!
Today I say goodbye!
Waiting for more to come,
Welcome the Last Millennium,
Welcome, you've got to wake up,
This is the Last Millenium
.
Hey, hey!
Today I say hello!
This is, this is,
This is the Last Millennium!
