I am an emigre,
I write to Germany
In foreign words,
A tongue of actuality

Hands in grey gloves
To Germany with love
A war between the wars
A war between the wars

Triumph over by
Gone sorrow
Can in unity be won
Let them all pursue this purpose

Till reality is gone
I am an unexpected spy
From the outside of my eye
Translate it first

Then comprehend
I'm here indeed
But there I stand
I write to Germany,

I write to Germany
To Germany with love,
To Germany with love
This is the turn of colours

All real, some still unseen
There is no more decision
'Cause there's too much in between
Let us build a nightmare nation

Learn and work as never yet
That this cold new generation
Faith in its own fears beget
Here comes the modern rat,

Here comes the terror squad
Ours is the salt of wisdom,
Here we come all dressed in black
From the ruins risen slowly

To the future turned we stand
Flourish in this blessing glory
Flourish German fatherland
I write to Germany,

I write to Germany
All quiet in Germany,
All quiet in Germany

    General CommentHalf of fatherland becomes "Verlorenes Land". Remaining was divided to three parts. Eventually, Germans reunited once more. Thanks God!
