The Good Wins Out (Das Gute gewinnt)

traducere în Engleză

The Good Wins Out

When I look out there in the world
It’s hard to believe in anything
Who took our sanity away, ¹
how low have we already gone
I see gamblers who helplessly miscalculate
and spend the money they’ve lent themselves, ²
which turns their lust into self-indulgences
and get off without having to take the responsibility ³
This world runs head-on against the wall
Tell me if you still really believe in it
that the good wins out, that the good wins out ⁴
that the good wins out, that the good wins out
A father who forgets himself too often, ⁵
who thinks that his fist means I love you
Priests preach to ease the misery
and then raise their hands against children ⁶
Leaders, who poison beliefs
to cause wars in the name of God
I see people too far to the right and too proud ⁷
of their country; of the black, red, and gold ⁸
You say you never give up hope,
but I say it is and remains a delusion ⁹
‘cause the good never wins out, ‘cause the good never wins out
‘cause the good never wins out, do you think the good wins out?
and that a hero comes and carries us through the fire
and routs out our enemies? ¹⁰
that the good wins out, that the good wins out
good wins out, the good wins out

Das Gute gewinnt

Seh' ich in die Welt da draußen,
Fällt es schwer, noch an irgendwas zu glauben.
Wer hat uns den Verstand genommen?
Wie tief sind wir schon runtergekommen!
