Deutschland muss sterben (English translation)

English translation

Germany Must Die

Where fascists and multinational corporations rule
Where no one's interested in life or the environment
Where everyone is losing their self
That can only mean one thing...
 
Germany must die, so that we can live! (4x)
 
The sky is black, the earth is red
The hands of the big-shot pigs are gold
But the federal eagle 1 is gonna crash soon
Because Germany, we're gonna take you to your grave
 
Where facists and multinational corporations rule
Where no one's interested in life or the environment
Where everyone is losing their self
That can only mean one thing:
 
Germany must die, so that we can live! (4x)
 
Germany must die, so that we can live! (4x)
 
Where rockets and tanks "secure" freedom
Nuclear power-plants and computers "improve" life
Armed robots everywhere
But Germany, we'll bring you down
 
Germany must die, so that we can live! (4x)
 
Germany, die away, so that we can live! (4x)
 
Germany?!

This song was written as a response to the slogan: "Deutschland muß leben, und wenn wir sterben müssen" ("Germany must live, even if we have to die") which is inscribed on a monument for soldiers in Hamburg which was erected 1936 during the Nazi era. (Taken from user Maluca's comment below.)

Thanks,

There were a couple of more typos as well, which I corrected. (forgot to proofread)

Hmmm. It's a borrowed word, but it usually refers to specifically german tanks in World War 2. I will change it.
