"Übers Ende der Welt" as written by David Jost, Dave Roth, Patrick Benzner and Peter Hoffmann....
We were running through the town
Our senses have been drowned
No place we haven't been before
We learn to live and then

Our freedom came to an end
We have to break down this wall
Too young to live a lie
Look into my eyes

Ready, set, go, it?s time to run
The sky is changing, we are one
Together we can make it while the world is crashing down
Don't you turn around

We are looking back again
All loneliness and pain
Never been so wide awake
Breathe slowly in and out

Somewhere behind the clouds
I can see the morning break
Too young to live a lie
Look into my eyes

Ready, set, go, it?s time to run
The sky is changing, we are one
Together we can make it while the world is crashing down
Don't you turn around

Leave it all behind you now
The final wall is breaking down
We are what it?s all about
Nothing can stop us now

I promise you right now
I?ll never let you down

Ready, set, go, it?s time to run
The sky is changing, we are one
Together we can make it while the world is crashing down
Don't you turn around

Ready, set, go, it?s time to run
The sky is changing, we are one
Together we can make it while the world is crashing down
Don't you turn around

don't you turn around
Don't you turn around

    General Commentw00t I like this song, somehow.
    As far as my knowledge goes, I'm not very good at German, I think it's about an end of a chapter in world history, and today's youth standing up against everything. It reminds me of something apocalyptic, but I doubt Tokio Hotel would make a song about that.

    General CommentHmmm.
    I wish people could type out a real translation.
    It's annoying having to depend on the English translations that are twisted out of shape.

    General CommentOkay, this is a literal translation for those who asked. I, in no way, claim to be good at German since I am teaching myself. (Hey, but this helped me learn a bit more!) But going pretty much word-for-word, this is what the translation is:

    We ran through the city
    In no place more recognizable
    There is no place we weren't once already

    We tried everything
    But our freedom ends here
    We must now go through this wall

    Shift your weight
    The abyss can't see you here (? not sure about this, but abgrund=abyss, right?)

    Attention, ready, let's go
    Before us, the sky breaks apart
    We create it together
    Over the end of the world
    We leave it all behind us

    We look back again
    This is the last glimpse
    Of all that was forever there

    Come, keep breathing once again
    It can be the beginning
    We grasp the morning near us

    Shift your weight
    The abyss can't see you here

    Attention, ready, let's go
    Before us, the sky breaks apart
    We create it together
    Over the end of the world
    We leave it all behind us

    Leave it all behind you
    There's nothing left to lose
    Everything is behind us
    We can't stop further up (also unsure of this part! It didn't make much sense to me...the up part)

    Shift your weight,
    Look me in the face

    Attention, ready, let's go
    Before us, the sky breaks apart
    We create it together
    Over the end of the world
    We leave it all behind us

    So, there you have it. Sorry if it doesn't make sense to you, but I tried. Also, as with many languages, certain things could have a different meaning there.

    Anyway, as Bill himself said, this song is about going through life with a good friend or lover and getting past all the obstacles life throws at you ;) Great song, and I love the video to this one, too.
