Was ich sah auf meiner Reise
Scheint zu wahr es zu erzählen
Drum versuch ich auf meine Weise
Euch mit mir dort hinzunehmen

Wie ich einst auf dunklen Pfaden
Weit von hier in Nordens Land,
Sah was mir den Atem raubte
Was ich bis da nicht gekannt

Blut im Auge
Auf wunde Knie
So sank ich nieder
So fand ich sie

So beschloss ich dort zu bleiben
Was ich sah ließ mich nicht mehr los
Zu entdecken ihr Geheimnis
War die Nacht für mich verloren

Tag um Tag in grauem Regen
Suchte ich den Blick noch mal
War verfallen jenem Zauber
Den ich bisher nicht erahnt

Blut im Auge
Auf wunde Knie
So sank ich nieder
So fand ich sie

Lies zurück der Städte Tore
Zog hinauf in eisige Höhen
Sturmgewitter, Donners Peitschen
Suchten mich zu Grund zu gehn
Blickte in des Wassers Fälle
Hinter Sträucher, Birkenhain
Unruhig Blicke, grau die Wogen
Wo mag sie geblieben sein?

Schlaflos, rastlos such ich
Lautlos, raunend, hört sie mich nicht

Über Felsen, Berg und Heide
Dickicht, Dornen, Dunkelheit
Such ich sie bei Nacht, die Weiße
Such den gleißend' Himmelsschein

    Song Meaningokay, so most of my knowledge comes from a rough translation of the german lyrics so bear with me:

    basically, a wounded man with blood in his eyes (hence in the title which means Blood in the Eye) is weak and near dying, possibly from a battle. he falls onto his knees and looks up and lo and behold, he sees the most beautiful sight ever, which restores him (i'm not really sure if it was a beautiful paradise or an actual woman he saw. however, he refers to the sight as "her" throughout the song).

    determined to find "her" again and discover her secrets, he spends the rest of his life looking for "her." However, he never finds "her" again.

    that's my two cents.

    "Blood in the eye"

    What I have seen on my journey
    Seems too true to tell
    So I'll try in my own way
    To take you there with me

    As once on dark paths
    Far from here in northern lands
    Saw what took my breath away
    What I didn't know until then

    Blood in the eye
    On sore knees
    So I sank down
    So I found her

    So I determined to stay there
    What I've seen didn't set me free
    To discover her secret
    The night was lorn for me

    Day by day in grey rain
    I searched for the view again
    Have been fallen for the charm
    I had never seen before

    Blood in the eye
    On sore knees
    So I sank down
    So I found her

    Left behind the cities portals
    I travelled up into icy heights
    Thunderstorms, Thunder's lash
    Tried myself to decay
    Looked into the water's falls
    Behind bushes, birche's groves
    Restless views, grey the waves
    Where might she have stayed?

    Sleepless, restless I'm searching...
    Quiet, whispering, she doesn't hear me...

    Over rocks, mountains and heathland
    Spinnet, thorns, darkness
    I'm searching for her by night, the white one
    Searching for the glistening heaven's sheen
