surreal rendition of poetry in a stone world, play acting daily, we remain alone and the heart goes cold

Das Herz wird kalt / The heart goes cold

In einer Welt aus Stein sind Wunder selten
Liebe ist nur ein Wort auf dem Asphalt
Wir spielen Tag für Tag
Narren und Helden
Mauern uns ein
Bleiben allein
Und das Herz wird kalt
In a world of stone wonders are seldom
Love is but a word on the asphalt
We play act day after day
Fools and heroes
Wall ourselves in
Remain alone
And the heart goes cold
