I'm alive and I'm bleeding for everyone
pull me from this mire
hold me till I'm home
I believe in all of me
so I'll always live on
I have seen them
I have watched them all fall
I have been them
I have watched myself crawl
but I'm alive
and I'll be singing for everyone
did you see them
did you watch us all fall
did you save them
no you watched as we died
will you believe in me
because sometimes we never die

    General Comment"hold me till I'm home" signifies that the person is dying, but it seems he's immortal. However I think it's just metaphorical, so he's really dying but doesn't mind because he believes he'll still be around. Heaven perhaps? In that case "will you believe in me" is him asking the other if they should go to there together. Just my take anyway.
    Der Uberlebende means something like The Everliving.
    And yes, it is indeed an awesome song.

    General Commentder überlebende = the Survivor

    In a time of crisis everyone is crawling in mire and looses their dignity and pride. however the person is happy to just be alive, as most others have died. no one has helped these persons in their crisis.
