Astronaut

Versions: #1#2#3
I lift off, nothing's keeping me down
Everything pale and grey
I haven't flown in too long
like an astronaut
 
We walk around having it up to here, heads are empty
Sit up to the neck in garbage, have holes in our heart
Drowning worries and problems in the cup full of wine
With a smile of stone, we can't come up with anything better
We've already forgotten tomorrow, who we were yesterday
We've eaten ourselves full, never forget to pay
Leave everything standing and lay for more ash and dust
We all want it to work but we're not paying attention
The voice of reason has been silenced, we can't hear it anymore
But we sometimes have the feeling that we don't belong here
There is no forwards or back anymore, only below and above
One from 100 million, a small speck on the ground
I lift off
 
I lift off, nothing's keeping me down
Everything pale and grey
I haven't flown in too long
like an astronaut
I see the world from above
The rest pales in grey
I lost time and space up here
like an astronaut
 
In the dark of night, everything's so peaceful up here, but down there it's kicking off
We all contribute, but break under the load
We hope for God, but missed the miracle,
We build ever-higher until it reaches infinity
Almost 8 billion people, but the humanity is missing
From up here, suddenly none of it matters,
From up here you can't see borders or the color of skin
Nothing dulls the racket, I can't hear you all anymore
I'm slowly getting the feeling that I belong here
There is no forwards or back anymore, only below and above
One from 100 million, a small speck on the ground
I lift off!
 
I lift off, nothing's keeping me down
Everything pale and grey
I haven't flown in too long
like an astronaut
I see the world from above
The rest pales in grey
I lost time and space up here
like an astronaut
Oho oho oho
like an astronaut
 
And at the sight of this beauty, I remember everything again,
Are we not actually alive to love and to be
I'd love to stay here forever, but I'm just the blink of an eye
that's all I can be after 5 billion years
 
I lift off, nothing's keeping me down
Everything pale and grey
I haven't flown in too long
like an astronaut
I see the world from above
The rest pales in grey
I lost time and space up here
like an astronaut
Oho oho oho
like an astronaut

Änderungsvorschläge:

"nothing holds me to the ground" => "nothing's keeping me down" oder "nothing's holding me to the ground" (Verlaufsform ist typischer als Normalform)

"I haven't flown in too long" => "I haven't flown for too long" ("in" steht mit Zeitangabe wie "I haven't flown in two years").

"uns fällt nichts Besseres ein" => "Unable to come up with anything better" oder "Can't come up with anything better"

"Ham' uns alle vollgefressen, nie vergessen zu zahl'n" => Fehler in der Vorlage, es heißt "und vergessen...".

"We all want that it works, but we don't watch out" => "We all want it to work but we're not paying attention"

"One from 100 million, a small point on the ground" => "One in a 100 million, a small speck on the ground"

"that won't be around in 5 billion years" => "That's all I can be after 5 billion years" (da hast du den Sinn der Vorlage falsch verstanden).
