Lyrics from
Der innerer Reichtum der Leute ist
wie Licht bunt, durch Farbglas hereinzuscheinen
Das angenehme taegliche Leben ist
wie ein warmes Kerzenlicht

Lyrics from
People's inner wealth is
Like multicolored light shining in through stained glass
Pleasant daily life is
Like a warm candlelight

Lyrics from
Die sehr weite gruene Erde
Das reiche schoene Wasser
Die grandiose Natur sorgt immer noch fuer ihre Kinder

Lyrics from
The very wide green Earth
The bountiful, beautiful water
Grandiose Nature cares always for her children

Lyrics from
Hoffentlich koennen wir es irgendwann verstehen
Wir gehen zur anderen Seite des Horizontes
Hoffentlich koennen wir es irgendwann verstehen
Wir gehen festen Schrittes

Lyrics from
Hopefully we can one day understand it
We go to the other side of the horizon
Hopefully we can one day understand it
We go at a fast pace

Lyrics from
Alles Lebendige stirbt eines Tages
Ob wir zum Sterben bereit sind oder nicht,
der Tag kommt sicher

Lyrics from
All living things one day die
Whether we are ready to die or not
The day will surely come

Lyrics from
Ist das der Engel, der vom daemmernden Himmel hinunter flog?
Ist das der Teufel, der aus der Felsenspalte heraus kroch?

Lyrics from
Is that the angel that flew down from the dawning heavens?
Is tha the devil that crept out from the crevice?

Lyrics from
Traenen, Aerger, Mitleid, Grausamkeit,
Frieden, Chaos, Glaube, Verrat
Wir werden gegen unser Schicksal ankaempfen
Wir duerfen uns nicht in unser Schicksal ergeben

Lyrics from
Tears, trouble, pity, cruelty
Peace, chaos, belief, betrayal
We will fight against our destiny
We must never give in to our destiny

Lyrics from
Mit Trauer und Entscheidung im Herzen
zeigen wir den Willen weiterzugehen
Niemand darf eigensinnig seines Lebens beraubt werden

Lyrics from
With grief and determination in our hearts
We show the will to go farther
No one should be willfully robbed of their life

Due to site issues, umlauts cannot be displayed in this song. They have therefore been replaced with the digraphs that are used to represent them in English and in cases such as URLs. I know it's technically incorrect in German and ugly, but this is the best solution I currently have available.
