"Segel setzen" as written by Sebastian Lange, Boris Pfeiffer, Andre Strugala, Marco Zorzytzky, Kay Lutter, Reiner Morgenroth and Michael Rhein....
Wenn der Mond sein Licht verliert
Dich die Sonne nicht mehr wärmt
Wenn aus Zwergen Riesen werden
Die Welt von alten Helden schwärmt
Wenn die Schatten länger werden
Wenn dir der Hass die Luft abdrückt
Worte tief im Herzen brennen
Und du spürst du wirst verrückt

Dann komm mit mir auf die Reise
Dann komm mit mir weit hinaus
Nimm sie mit deine Träume
Bevor das Jahr ergraut

Wenn die Tage länger werden
Spinnen ihre Netze zieh´n
Wenn alle Worte schon gesagt
Dann ist es an der Zeit zu flieh´n
Wenn das Grollen lauter wird
Falsche Töne plötzlich Kunst
Feiglinge zu Götzen werden
Dann ist hier kein Platz für uns

Dann komm mit mir...

: Lass uns Segel setzen
Lass uns von hier flieh´n
Ich will dich nicht missen
Du darfst mich entführ´n :

Nimm sie mit - deine Träume

: Lass uns Segel setzen... :

    General Comment"Hoisting sails

    When the moon is losing it's light
    The sun no longer warms you
    When dwarfs become giants
    The world is praising old heroes
    When the shadows grow longer
    When the hate makes breathing hard
    Words burn deep in the heart
    And you feel, you're going mad

    Then come with me on the journey
    Then come with me far away
    Take with you your dreams
    Before the year gets grey

    When the days are getting longer
    Spiders weave their webs
    When all words have been said
    Then it's time to flee
    When the thunder is growing louder
    Wrong notes are suddenly art
    Cowards become tin gods
    Then there's no place here for us

    Then come with me on the journey
    Then come with me far away
    Take with you your dreams
    Before the year gets grey

    Let us hoist the sails
    Let us flee from here
    I don't want to miss you
    You may kidnap me

    Take them with you - your dreams

    Then come with me on the journey
    Then come with me far away
    Take with you your dreams
    Before the year gets grey"

    I think this one is quite easy to understand for a song of In Extremo: It's about realizing when things have changed and you no longer fit in the way you are. This song does not promote to fight the changes, but to get away from them. Better leave those who no longer understand you and remain who you are and keep your dreams.
    Because it's about someone who is offering to take one with him this is not a song of despair, but in fact of hope for a better place to live.
