English translation

Live my life

I have to play these games with the system here
But I am waving around in the wind like flies do when they are flying
Often I am desperate because my drives were driving me
Often I only have hate left, but want to love out of love
I am looking for nature where there are round balls rolling
Looking for creeks and rivers where good fizzy water is fizzing
Have to shout out calls of freedom, between blowballs 1 after the future
Searching on a treasure hunt, but only find bad remains
Have to drink murky drinks, eat salty food,
Apply black make-up
Have to release my soul and dress it in a dress
I have to rhyme my rhymes on a beat
I have to release my spirit
Pray prayers to God
But I can't find peace
Don't need anything to read
I don't listen to the people who give big speeches
I only want to live my life
 
It is about time, it is about time
I am going to give everything
It is about time, it is about time
I want to live my life
Live my life
I am going to give everything!
 
I have to write my poem
And think the way thinkers do
Look at me, my fate, steer thinkers with the driver
Have to kneel on my knees, like when laying tiles
Often I can only hate, but want to love out of love
I have to grieve out of grief and because troubles bother me
I cannot see rays of sunshine shining in the sky
Can never bathe in the sun because of the clouds
I see my worries roll over me like coils
I sense a thunderstorm, that will shower me like showers
Do not see any rainbows, but slide like on slides,
Life sends me for a bath, like when swimmers swim
I always only catch a boot when I am out fishing,
But when the embers smoulder
And I feel feelings
And when the rage is raging, I have to tie up the laces
And smooth my own paths, and knead everything that is in my way like dough
I only want to live my life
 
It is about time, it is about time
I am going to give everything
It is about time, it is about time
I want to live my life
Live my life
I am going to give everything!

Thanks. Yes, it was quite hard to translate, but I guess that was also half the fun. Regular smile
Fixed the typos.
