To Die (Zu Sterben)

English translation

To Die

Versions: #1#2
How often do you want to die,
what are you tightly clinging onto?
Is it the fear of your truth,
which leaves you staying lonely?
 
How far do you want to fall?
How long can you struggle?
Do you see yourself – Do you not see,
that you've long ago faded away?
 
Do you hate your life so much?
Have no fear and come here!
 
It's so easy to die.
Don't make it hard for yourself.
Come here!
Only when you're losing,
feeling no more fear,
You'll know what you're living for.
 
It's so easy to die.
Please, please don't make it hard for yourself!
Come here! Only when you're falling apart,
the world is missing you,
You'll know what you're living for.
 
How long do you want to wait?
What are you so tightly holding onto?
Do you believe time will heal your wounds,
when you don't let it heal?
 
How far do you want to fall?
How long can you resist?
Do you see yourself – Do you not see,
that you've long ago faded away?
 
Do you hate your life so much?
Have no fear and come here!
 
It's so easy to die.
Don't make it hard for yourself.
Come here!
Only when you're losing,
feeling no more fear,
You'll know what you're living for.
 
It's so easy to die.
Please, please don't make it hard for yourself!
Come here!
Only when you're falling apart,
the world is missing you,
You'll know what you're living for.
 
All your tears, your hate
and your longing.
All that you can fight for,
it won't change anything anymore.
 
All your aspiration,
Your pain and your sorrow.
You've lived, have awoken in nothing.
You've started searching alone.
 
In vain!
 
It's so easy to die.
Don't make it hard for yourself.
Come here!
Only when you're losing,
feeling no more fear,
You'll know what you're living for.
 
It's so easy to die.
Please, please don't make it hard for yourself!
Come here!
Only when you're falling apart,
the world is missing you,
You'll know what you're living for.
You'll know what you're living for!

"Only when you're falling apart,
the world is missing you,
You'll know what you're living for."

It says in the original (I paraphrase here:)
"It is only when you're falling apart and the world starts missing you, will you know what you're living for."
