Einstürzende Neubauten - Ich bin's (English translation)

English translation

It's Me

(It's me) Nichts
(It's me) Nihil
(It's me) Nothing
 
I see nothing
Nothing I can drink
I bite my tongue
And drink what I can
 
Open another door
Don't open it!
Don't open it!
Don't open it!
 
(It's me) Empty
(It's me) Empty
 
I hear nothing
No numbers, no digits
The dial tone is screaming at me
Nothing can separate us
Let's get the hell out of this dream
Yeah, yeah, yeah — "Hello?"
 
Open another door
Don't open it!
Don't open it!
Don't open it!
 
(It's me) Nichts (Empty)
(It's me) Nihil (Empty)
(It's me) Nothing (Empty)
 
Pure emptiness (Empty)
Was dropped, apparently
Nothing but light
In the blink of an eye
Tomorrow is a new day — somewhere
But not here — nowhere
 
Open another door
Don't open it!
Don't open it!
Don't open it!
 
(It's me) Nichts (Empty)
(It's me) Nihil (Empty)
(It's me) Nothing (Empty)
 
An empty set without elements
An empty set without elements
All elements
But
Throw all elements into turmoil
Chop up a broom
Fan the flames
Maelstrom in this room
 
Open another door
Don't open it!
Don't open it!
Don't open it!
 
It's me
A shadow of myself
It's me
A shadow of myself
 
Open another door
Don't open it!
Don't open it!
Don't open it!
 
My guest is waiting
Has been waiting a long time
Is making himself comfortable in the cupboard
Patiently waiting
My guest is waiting
My guest finally wants to leave
My guest is waiting
 
But
This door I won't open
 
As long as my core is still glowing
As long as my core is still glowing
As long as my core is still glowing
As long as my core is still glowing
 
Because my core is still glowing
Because my core is still glowing
Because my core is still glowing
Because my core is still glowing
 
Because my core is still unsolicitedly glowing
Because my core is still unsolicitedly glowing
Because my core is still unsolicitedly glowing
 
Open me!
Open me!
I'm setting off
