1 « tohu wabohu
2 na hanyate,
3 kat'asphodelion leimona
4 mi ritrovai per una selva oscura...
5 no light, but rather darkness visible
6 de terra lonhdana.
7 how well that we are blind...
8 talitha kumi
9 ins Leben...
10 Sie ist's, die sieht,
11 Meine Mutter,
12 la alma,
13 the rest is silence.
14 Om Shantih,
15 le Paradis n'est pas artificiel
16 son smeshnovo sheloveka
17 e quindi uscimmo a riveder le stelle.
18 pulvis et umbra sumus
19 like a reflection in a glass...
20 der Horizont,
21 mizu no oto!
22 non conclude »
(« barren and void / that never dies, / on a grey prairie of asphodels / I got lost in a dark wood... / no light, but rather darkness visible / from distant lands. // how well that we are blind... / little girl, get up / to the life... / she is the one that can see, / my mother, / the soul, / the rest is silence. // peace, / no more fool's paradise / dream of a ridiculous man / thereby we went out again to see the stars. // we're dust and shade / like a reflection in a glass... / the horizon, / a sound of water! / it never ends »)
