Stelle ( Αγγλικά μετάφραση)
Well, the captain left for who knows where,
For who knows what, by God, who knows why.
But who can stop the captain?
Who will change the captain's mind?
He wanted to understand it himself.
There was a fog that you couldn't see a yard away
And the rudder that didn't respond anymore.
The sailors, like Saint Peter,
Asked to turn back
But he was waiting for a sign, a sign from above.
Stars, distant stars,
Miserable stars of this world,
Send me a light to see it through.
Stars, precious stars,
Enchanting eyes of mystery,
Tell me the hell kind of reason has my sailboat to be.
The captain was lost in a mirage
In the midst of a restless sea.
"It could have gone worse",
He lied in the face of the crew.
And then he sang across the deck:
Somewhere, the love there must be,
Somewhere, we may find the dream,
The desire that we lack,
The joy, the expectation and the emotion,
Things that I don't even know, but we'll discover them together.
Stars, distant stars
Silent stars of the universe
Tell me where, when
And for what I got lost.
Stars, pitiful stars,
Scattered stars of this evening,
What am I doing on this abomination of a black ship?
The captain was one of the brave ones
And between his legs, he hid an extra heart
But after centuries of lies
And of telling jokes to the crew,
He discovered the tears of not bearing it anymore.
Stars, sluggish stars,
Stunned stars of this night,
What the hell do you care if you're alive or dead?
Stars, lost stars,
Miserable stars of this sky,
The time has come to tell you to fuck off!
