Armageddon

Halt mich fest, ich hab Angst
Ich hatte diesen Traum
 
Gott sah die Welt
Was er sah, war nicht gut
Und er saß zu Gericht
Und entschied über uns
Und ein Stern, er war schwarz
Er verließ seine Bahn
Und er flog auf uns zu
 
Über Nacht wurd' es heiß
Und am Pol schmolz das Eis
Und die Flut, sie begann
Und sie stieg aus dem Meer
Und sie fraß sich ins Land
Eine Stadt, sie verschwand
Und Gott sah: Es war gut
 
Armageddon ist erwacht
Und die Tage werden Nacht
Ich sah Menschenkinder fliehen
In die Kirchen und Moscheen
Ich sah Todfeinde vereint
Eine Sonne, die nicht scheint
Halt mich fest, ich habe Angst
Und ich schlafe nie mehr ein
Nie mehr ein
 
Sie sind hier
Unser Fluch und das Tier
666
Seine Zahl bringt uns Tod
Bringt uns Qual
 
Dumpf klingt der Ton
Wie ein Riss, wie ein Sprung
Aus dem Herz unserer Welt
Alles bebt, alles fällt
Unser Stern, er wird schwarz
Er verlässt seine Bahn
Und kein Gott hält ihn an
 
Armageddon ist erwacht
Und die Tage werden Nacht
Ich sah Menschenkinder fliehen
In die Kirchen und Moscheen
Ich sah Todfeinde vereint
Eine Sonne, die nicht scheint
Halt mich fest, ich habe Angst
Und ich schlafe nie mehr ein
Nie mehr ein

Armageddon

Hold me tight I'm afraid
I had this dream
 
God saw the world
What he saw wasn't good
And he sat in court
And decided over us
And a star, it was black
It left its orbit
And it flew towards us
 
Overnight it became hot,
And at the poles the ice melted
And the flood, it started
And they rose up from the sea
And they ate their way into the land
A town, it disappeared
And God said: It was good
 
Armageddon is awakened
And the days become night
I saw human children fleeing
Into the churches and mosques
I saw deadly enemies united
A sun that doesn't shine
Hold me tight I'm afraid
And I never fall asleep again
Never again
 
They are here
Our curse and the beast
666
His number brings us death
Brings us agony
 
The tone sounds muffled
Like a crack, like a leap
From the heart of our world
Everything trembles, everything falls
Our star, it becomes black
It leaves its orbit
And no God stops it
 
Armageddon is awakened
And the days become night
I saw human children fleeing
Into the churches and mosques
I saw deadly enemies united
A sun that doesn't shine
Hold me tight I'm afraid
And I never fall asleep again
Never again
 
Thanks!

Excellent translation, nothing to correct

And at the pole the ice melted

And at the poles the ice melted
--------------------------------------------------------------
It's just alot more common to use poles instead of referring to just one of them.

I corrected it, thank you. And I'm happy to hear that my translation is excellent. Honestly, I didn't expect that it would be excellent, just hoped that it was good enough.

Yes, the ones I've seen you make are very well translated, and if there is a mistake, it's just an awkward sounding sentence.

I've noticed that I still have a tendency to write sentences that sound awkward in English. In this case, I could use the fact that English, in my case, is a foreign language as an excuse, but I've no intention of doing so. I wish to improve my knowledge of English, which is one of the reasons why I would be grateful if you or anyone else would point out these and other mistakes whenever you see them.

Then I'll treat you like an English speaker, a bit more rougher when I look at your translations.
