Gürtel am Arm (English translation)

English translation

Belt around the arm

Kevin is not stupid but also not smart
He likes to hang out home for hours
With his two dogs on the couch
but when it gets dark, he goes out
Without money, without perspective
Until there's a cell phone lying around, opportunity makes a thief
No thinking, simply pocketing
He doesn't give a shit about their lifes, he wants to save his
Gambling and then rocking to Kottbusser Tor
To this place where he lost his hope
The phone and the brown stuff change owners
Yes, Kevin is a junkie
And every time when it begins
When the fear burns and this shaking steers his hand
Then he doesn't care anymore
because he's addicted and he injects himself, happily
 
Huh, Kevin wears a belt around his arm
He aims, pulls the trigger and it becomes nicely warm
When he presses dreams to his veins
one of the Christiane F's kids and he escapes
Huh, Kevin wears a belt around his arm
He aims, pulls the trigger and it becomes nicely warm
Only a shadow of himself, in the candle light
because he doesn't feel anymore, his heart is broken
 
The needle tip pierces through the skin
Suddenly it's not so loud anymore
because slowly the poison takes its course
And all of the lights go out
He falls and falls
To a better world
Nothing is how it seems anymore
and he cries
Every tear is a word that he can't say
This load leaves his breast, he begins to breathe
And everything is so light, as if he flew
For a short eternity he feels the joy
And every time when it begins
When the fear burns and this shaking steers his hand
Then he doesn't care anymore
because he's addicted and he injects himself, happily
 
Huh, Kevin wears a belt around his arm
He aims, pulls the trigger and it becomes nicely warm
When he presses dreams to his veins
one of the Christiane F's kids and he escapes
Huh, Kevin wears a belt around his arm
He aims, pulls the trigger and it becomes nicely warm
Only a shadow of himself, in the candle light
because he doesn't feel anymore, his heart is broken
 
The cold sweat sticks in the face
The eyes stare lifeless into emptiness
His stomach turns around and the skin itches
Until he pours out this food out of the can
He stretches out his hands towards the sky
Because this pain eats him from the inside
He wants to scream, but he can't
He wants to scream, because he suffers, because he knows that he's sick
And every time when it begins
When the fear burns and this shaking steers his hand
Then he doesn't care anymore
because he's addicted and he injects himself, happily
 
Huh, Kevin wears a belt around his arm
He aims, pulls the trigger and it becomes nicely warm
When he presses dreams to his veins
one of the Christiane F's kids and he escapes
Huh, Kevin wears a belt around his arm
He aims, pulls the trigger and it becomes nicely warm
Only a shadow of himself, in the candle light
because he doesn't feel anymore, his heart is broken
