Düsterer König (English translation)


Düsterer König

Wir sind alle Könige unser'r eig'nen Geisterwelt,
Laufen in Tanzschuhen auf dem schwarzen Feld.
Gelegentlich singen wir in Herdfeuers Tränen,
Wenn Nachtblumen bei dem Grab brennen.
Man kann nicht sehen die Fröhlichkeit mit Monde eingeschenkt,
Der junge Soldat auf der Statue in Blut gesenkt.
Man kann auch stehen auf der Magd, ein Lied so lang schreiben,
Doch jeder wird immer ein düsterer König bleiben.

Gloomy King

All of us are kings of our own spiritual world,
Running on a black field in dancing shoes and skirts.
Occasionally we sing with tears of fire of hearth,
As flowers bloom by graves in night's heart.
You cannot see the enjoyment filled with the moonlight,
Soldiers fell so young upon the statue of bloody dirt.
You may fall in love with the girl, a long poem to write,
But we're always gloomy kings in our own world.
