lyrics

Once you asked me to play tag, in a silvan next to the place,
where I fell in love with your auburn eyes, your pleasant face with the enticing smile.
I chased you and you chased me in a fabulous harmony,
a stone skidded down, I watched you scream before i fell down the acclivity.
I never felt as bad as now, broken legs and splinted arms,
one moment ago i enjoyed your laugh, now I'm scared not to survive this stroke.
The creek was cold and the movements were hard, I tried to focus on the beat of my heart, water poured in, oxygen out and now i know what this fight is about.

The last time i was conscious I heard myself shout:
„Now this is the end for heaven's sake, I get buried by my own mistakes“

I watch people dressed in black, carving words into a stone
„He'll stay alive in the silvanstory and he'll never be alone“
I never felt as bad as now broken thoughts and a splinted heart, once you said
„life is hard“ while you turned of my music and burnt my art.
I watch people dressed in white wanting me to survive,
I didn't care, goodbye world and welcome to paradise

The last time i was conscious I heard myself shout:
„Now this is the end for heaven's sake, I get buried by my own mistakes“
