Keep Going

[Part 1]
One sees a cold look in the eyes, which tells you: it will soon be Winter again
But the blood flows so warm through his veins, like the streets in the Summer
As quiet as night, because the silence eases old pains
But his heartbeat is as loud as the sky when it thunders
So many promises from people who said they'll stay forever
Well then why listen to them still?
Because only the lie speaks without period and comma
He saw angels cry and devils love
He saw dogs fight and wolves stay
How the good ones go far too early
and the bad ones triumph
He saw so many broken pieces bring happiness [1] and bad luck in the mirror
The wounds don't grow,
Instead they break wings
Of course some splinters remain in the heart
Because he wounds which don't bleed are the deepest
 
[Hook]
Every step brings us further
Ever further
Also the rain keeps streaming
Ever further
The wind carries us further
Ever further
Also the pains continue
Further away from him, away from him
 
[Part 2]
Through many thousand eyes have millions of tears long flowed already
So many nights misery was alone with the stars in the sky
So often sits jealousy with him at the table
And broke his bread with no one
And just like the happiness, the years also fly past him too fast
Suffering has too many bullets leftover for us and so many have already hit
Because life is a test and it's unfair as well, but he still won't give up
When old pains go, the spirit becomes enriched
"Not the path is the goal," his iron law
Because it comes again, the sun after the icy rain
Therefore it will be worth it to go through the shit
And that success flies to someone has yet to be seen by anyone
So no one needs jealousy in his life
And how much can you pocket without adding a little to the pot
 
[Hook]
Every step brings us further
Ever further
Also the rain keeps streaming
Ever further
The wind carries us further
Ever further
Also the pains continue
Further away from him, away from him

Author's comments:

I like keep going for the title but it doesn't line up with the hook
It's meant to be an encouraging song, and immer weiter can mean different things to show growth through the song

By the second refrain it's obviously keep going/keep going but not the first time

[1] this is an idiom I don't know how to translate

Scherben bringen Glück: broken crockery brings luck
