lyrics

Some say the beast
With the wounded head
Was my beloved country
When cries of "Sieg Heil"
"Deutschland über Alles"
Resounded throughout
The streets of the city

From dizzying heights of glory
To heaps of ashes and ruin
The devil was ruling in Germany
And brought a curse upon her

But now the head wound's
Miraculously healed
And we have rebuilt again
The mightiest power
In the New Europe
The iron fist
On the cutting edge

It's making our neighbours nervous
And well they should be
The devil's not finished with Germany
We better get on our knees

"Wenn ich den Himmel verschließe
Und kein Regen fällt
Oder wenn ich der Heuschrecke gebiete
Das Land abzufressen
Und wenn ich eine Pest unter mein Volk sende
Und mein Volk, über dem mein Name ausgerufen ist
Demütigt sich
Und sie beten und suchen mein Angesicht
Und kehren um von ihren bösen Wegen
Dann werde ich vom Himmel her höre
Und ihre Sünden vergeben und ihr Land heilen"

The new generation
Is on the the march
Proud and wise in its own eyes
Weary of guilt
Resenting the Holocaust
Xenophobic
Nationalistic

Right-wing extremists
Fanatical hatred of the Jews
The devil's not finished with Germany
I hope that God is not too

If we humble ourselves and pray
And turn from our wicked ways
And repent
He'll hear us from heaven
And heal our land
And forgive our sins

Eternal weight of glory
Or the fire that never stops burning
O Lord, have mercy on Germany
For I fear
It's near
The end.
