Haven't seen anything

German

Nichts gesehen

 

Eine Frau wird vergewaltigt
In der Stadt morgens um 10
Und wir standen zwar daneben
Doch wir haben nichts gesehen

Ein Madchen wird von seinen Eltern
A girl has already been locked up by her parents for years
Indeed they are our neigbors
But strange – we have never recognized anything!

Wir haben nichts gesehen!
Wir sind die Mehrheit und wir mischen uns nicht ein!
Wir haben eigene Probleme!
Jeder stirbt fur sich allein!
Wir sind die Mehrheit
Niemand wirft den ersten Stein
Und darum muss sich keiner schamen –
Jeder stirbt fur sich allein!

Ein Mann geht durch die Stra?en
Er sieht anders aus als wir
Niemand mochte mit ihm reden
Denn er ist ja nicht von hier!
Und dann kommen ein paar Leute
Schlagen ihn ein bisschen tot
Wir haben wieder nichts gesehen –
Ich schatze mal
Wir sa?en schon beim Abendbrot

Wir haben nichts gesehen –
Wir haben nichts gehort –
Wir haben nichts gesagt
Denn es hat uns nichts gestort
Doch irgendwann bist du es dann
But someday you’ll be the one who cries for help
Then you’ll be in the minority

Und du kannst dir sicher sein
Wir vergie?en keine Trane
Jeder lebt –
Jeder kampft –
Jeder stirbt
Fur sich allein!

Haven't seen anything

Versions: #1#2

A woman is raped
In the city at 10 a.m.
And we were standing aside, indeed
But we haven't seen anything

A girl is locked up by her parents
For years already
And those are our neighbours, but funny -
We have never noticed anything

We haven't seen anything
We are the majority and we don't barge in
We have our own problems
Everybody dies on their own
We are the majority
Nobody throws the first stone
And therefore nobody has to be ashamed
Everybody dies on their own

A man walks down the streets
He looks different to us
Nobody wants to talk to him
Since he isn't from here
And then come some people
Beat him a little to death
Again, we haven't seen anything
I suppose
We were already having dinner

We haven't seen anything
We are the majority and we don't barge in
We have our own problems
Everybody dies on their own
We are the majority
Nobody throws the first stone
And therefore nobody has to be ashamed
Everybody dies on their own

We haven't seen anything
We haven't heard anything
We haven't said anything
For there was nothing bothering us
However, someday it's you who screams for help
Then you are the minority

We are the majority and we don't barge in
We have our own problems
Everybody dies on their own
We are the majority
And you can be sure
We don't shed a tear
Everybody lives
Everybody fights
Everybody dies on their own
