"Versteckt" as written by and Ingo/boden Hampf....
Du hast mich gesucht
Heute morgen am Meer
Im Seetang und zwischen den Steinen

Doch fandest du nur
Einen silbernen Fisch
Sein Tod lie?? dich bitterlich weinen

Du hast mich gesucht
In dem Haus auf dem Fels
Im Keller in Zimmern und Kammern

Du fandest nur Staub
Doch keinerlei Grund
Dich an deine Hoffnung zu klammern

Du kannst mich nicht finden
Ich hab' mich versteckt
Ich hab' deine Augen mit Schatten bedeckt

Du kannst mich nicht finden
Du kannst mich nicht seh'n
Schlie??' deine Augen
Z??hl' nochmal bis zehn
(nochmal bis zehn)

Du hast mich bei Freunden und Feinden gesucht
Hast Dichter und Richter bestochen
Doch dieser und jener waren ratlos wie du
Nun z??hlst Du die Tage und Wochen

Du hast alle Magier und Hexen befragt
Sie lasen in Kugeln und Sternen
Doch falsche Propheten, die finden mich nie
Solange sie das Suchen nicht lernen

Du kannst mich nicht finden
Ich hab' mich versteckt
Ich hab' deine Augen mit Schatten bedeckt

Du kannst mich nicht finden
Du kannst mich nicht seh'n
Schlie??' deine Augen
Z??hl' nochmal bis zehn
(nochmal bis zehn)

Such in allen Ecken
Such hinter den Hecken
Ich werd' mich verstecken und schweigen
Schau' ??ber die Schulter
Vielleicht bin ich da
Zur rechten Zeit will ich mich zeigen

Du kannst mich nicht finden
Ich hab' mich versteckt
Ich hab' deine Augen mit Schatten bedeckt

Du kannst mich nicht finden
Du kannst mich nicht seh'n
Schlie??' deine Augen
Z??hl' nochmal bis zehn

    General CommentFor me this song is about destiny, it is hidden from your eyes most of your life and it will only then become clear to you when you're ready for it, you can't seek it anywhere nor can anyone show it to you. But in your patience there's hope.

    General CommentThe song is about god, and about how it's futile to seek him out, because in the end it is *he who finds you.
    "You" in this song is mankind, as well as every single individual.

    Das Meer <- the dead sea. the morning refers to the early roots of monotheism.

    Silberner Fisch <- Christ. Dead, obviously, sparking emotion through his death.

    Das Haus auf dem Fels <- Christian church. Referring to how Christ told Peter he was the rock upon which he would build the church. The Basement is the original christian movement, the rooms are the catholic, protestant, and orthodox church, probably also islam, and the (small)chambers are the various smaller sects.

    The next verse refers to the various attempts of mankind to make god tangible or interpret his will. "Disciples" like the author of John's gospel, and many other authors try to find words describing god, Artists try to paint god. Judges rule claiming to follow gods will. But in the end, they are just as clueless as to what god really is.

    "nun zählst Du die Tage und Wochen" <-- probably refers to the christian calendar.

    Hexen und Magier <- pretty self-explanatory. they claim to command part of gods power or the power to make *him visible. So they are false prophets. They have to learn how to "search" for god just like everybody else.

    The final verse encourages mankind (and each individual) not to abandon the search, to live up to its potential. There are no miracles to be expected, because god will be "silent", but when the right time comes, *he will show himself. It's basically the theophilical agnostic's stance, with a little corinthians 13 strewn in.
    The god-human relationship is depicted as slightly paternal, but mostly very playful (in a rather positive way), making God a benevolent, fatherly friend, who is above such earthly concepts as religion, or even human perception and thought. Though not as thematically obvious, it's probably StS's most religious/spiritual song.
