Schachmatt (translation)

Nina Hagen


The end of the world, don't you care
What a shame, what agony of the soul
The end of the world, don't you care
What a shame, what agony of the soul

Is here nobody who is understanding
It is absolute war danger
Is here nobody who is understanding
It is high war danger

A and B and C weapons
How they just stare, stare and take
??? our earth ???
Yes, having having, like the stupid bugs
But where is our giving?

Listen, we've just made love
There he's flying towards us the asteroid
With reddish-yellow tail
He dances the dance of death for us
He makes a loud BOOM!
Quick, shut the window
The ones without fear, escape from the pliers (claws?)
The divine ships, with divine hands
They take the ones with no fear
The rest gets hit

Didn't we love the earth and the sand
The eternal great love, that connected us all
Didn't we love the one and only God
Didn't we suffer when we got this situation
Didn't we love the water and the sea
Is it really so difficult to change us and the world
Didn't we love the sun and the light
Please don't tell me again you can't change

The prophecy, when heat meets coldness
When the world is grey, when the world is dull
When storms become tornadoes is earth's end close
The world will be shaken by earthquakes, does nobody want to survive?

They will swallow city by city...checkmate!
County by country, ah you great elephant
Useless is your gentleness and politeness now
Everything is burnt down, no more money for bottle deposit
It's a big shame! It's a big shame!

Didn't we love the earth and the sand
The eternal great love, that connected us all
Didn't we love the water and the sea
Is it really so difficult to change us and the world
Didn't we love, the love and the power
The children and the animals and the great science
Didn't we love the quiet nature
Saved are the ones whose souls are pure
Didn't we love to be born as humans
And to share everything, till it came, the Yours and Mine

Didn't we love the donkey and the gnu
And the earned peace after done work
Didn't we love the one and only God
Didn't we suffer when we got this situation
Didn't we love the earth and the sand
The eternal big love that connected us all
Didn't we love the water and the sea
Is it really so difficult to change us and the world
Didn't we love the sun and the light
Please don't tell me again you can't change!
