Alptraum (translation)

Nina Hagen


Hey, do you miss me
when the nights are long and cold?
Do you dream of me
in a black haze of nostalgia?

But I, I, I, I, I
I am your nightmare
I come, I come at the break of dawn to give you a withering look
I'm after you and you won't escape me,
by night I turn you into an assassin, a traitor
I drive the sweat from your smooth brow deep down into your brain.

Hey, do you miss me
when the buds are bursting?
Do you dream of me
when I blast witchlike over the wall?

Hey, do you miss me when the deluge comes,
When everything is finished?
Shouldn't I help you out at all when nobody,
But nobody hoists you into the ark?

Don't be scared, it was all only a dream
(dreams are mere shadows)
By the clear bright light of day, none of this makes any difference
(dreams are mere shadows)
Only in the deep black of night are you seized by fright.

But I, I, I, I, I
I am your nightmare
By night I turn you into a quaking eel quivering in the torments of hell
I impale your head on a pole whereon it's nibbled by a fat rat
And in the shape of a fig fat clown
I come and give you one right on the chops.

I kill you a thousand times
I kill you three thousand times
I kill you six thousand times
I kill you nine thousand times
I kill you ten thousand times
I kill you a million-fold
I kill you a billion-fold
I kill you a trillion-fold.

I'm after you and you won't escape me,
by night I turn you into a assassin, a traitor.
I drive the sweat from your smooth brow deep down into your brain.
