Now it's me asking for a lyrics translation....

Post by badmartialarts » Fri Aug 06, 2004 12:24 am

Normally I try to help people with Spanish lyrics, or occasionally Japanese lyrics (if I want to bend my brain and remember Japanese grammar for a bit).

But German is my mother tongue....and I've never taken the time to learn it. My grandparents would be pissed. :(

This song called Krieger ("Warrior", I know that much German) by Die Fantastischen Vier ("The Fantastic Four", again, easy). If I didn't need grammar to translate this, I could probably do it....:(

der krieger erwacht er wurde über nacht zum krieger gemacht
macht sich bereit hat sich gedacht
wir haben die längste zeit zeit mit warten verbracht
zeit mit worten verbracht es uns bequem gemacht
doch jetzt macht sich zeitlosigkeit breit
der schläfer erwacht und ist bereit
und befreit vom raum lebt er in der vision
durchachreitet deinen traum in geheimer mission
und er kämpft um die anderen aus ihrem traum zu wecken
weil er weiss dass in ihnen viele kleine krieger stecken
und dennoch sagt er nicht komm mit mir
er fragt nach deinem traum fragt warum bist du hier
er hat die macht der magie im fluss der zeit wird ihm klar
er nimmt mit allen seinen sinnen seine zukunft war
erweitert das jetzt durch sein bewußtsein und erfüllt vom augenblick
geht er den nächsten schritt und weiss jetzt gibt es kein zurück
denn jetzt wacht er auf doch sein traum geht weiter weil der zauber wirkt
er wildet auf und sein traum geht weiter weil sein zauber wirkt
er wacht auf sein traum geht noch weiter als der zauber wirkt
er wacht auf und weiß es
*
er wacht auf aus dem traum den das kollektiv träumt
hat mit seinen alten vorstellungen endlich aufgeräumt
ersetzt die isolation und setzt an ihre stelle
die vision das wir eins sind auf einer welle
denn das leben Ist ein fluss der fließen muß lass ihn fließen
und der krieger sagt entschieden es wird zeit dich zu entschließen
wer du bist wohin du gehst auf welcher seite du stehst
es wird zeit daß du verstehst dass du am rad der zeit drehst
wir führen einen fight die meissten tragen ihn im stillen aus
nur das ergebnis quillt aus ihnen raus
*
und er kann es sehn als krieger fühlt er es ist existent
jetzt da er das geheimnis kennt spürt er im
rhythmus den zauber der monotonie
und energie wie noch nie ersetzt die theorie
und ihm wird klar harmonie bringt die kraft
sein traum wird wahr er hat es geschafft
jetzt wacht er auf doch sein traum geht weiter weil der zauber wirkt
er wacht auf doch sein traum geht weiter weil sein zauber wirkt
er wacht auf sein traum geht noch weiter als der zauber wirkt
er wacht auf
er wacht auf doch sein traum geht weiter weil der zauber wirkt
er wacht auf doch sein traum geht weiter weil sein zauber wirkt
er wacht auf sein traum geht viel weiter als der zauber wirkt
er wacht auf und weiss es
*
der zauber der musik gibt auch dir die kraft
geh den nächsten schritt dann hast dus geschafft
der krieger zeigt dir ein stück freies land einen platz
in deinem kopf den er fand und gibt dir seine hand
die du berührst und du spürst ihr seid eins es geschieht
ihr habt dieselbe vision Jetzt siehst du was er sieht
und ihr seht krieger überall und alle sind dir bekennt
jedes gesicht jede geschichte Ist mit dir verwandt
sie kämpfen für das leben krieger sind deswegen hier
leben für den traum und alle sind ein teil von dir und geben dir
ein gefühl wie ein schild du hast es lange vermisst
das so lange du kämpfst du nicht alleine bist
tritt in den kreis und mach wahr was du weisst
und die erkenntnis bringt die kraft mit der du dich befreist
und dabei frei von angst ganz gelöst
erlöst was in dir döst
denn dann wachst du auf und dein traum geht weiter weil dein zauber wirkt
du wachst auf doch dein traum geht weiter weil der zauber wirkt
du wachst auf doch geht dein traum weiter als der zauber wirkt
wachat du auf und weißt es
du wachst auf und dein traum geht weiter weil der zauber wirkt
du wachst auf und dein traum geht weiter weil der zauber wirkt
du wachst auf doch geht dein traum weiter als der zauber wirkt
wachst du auf und weisst es
Life's short.

this what i got from it after a few online translators ...
Maybe you can make sence of this stuff...

the krieger awakes he over night the krieger makes yourselves made
ready has itself thought we to have the longest time time with to wait
spent time with words spent it to us makes yourselves nevertheless now
timelessness comfortably made broadly awaked and is ready and released
from the area lives he in the vision through-oh-rides your dream in
secret mission and he fights for the others from their dream to wake
because he white that in them many small krieger to put and he says
does not come with me he asks for your dream asks why is you he has
makes here to the magic in the river of the time will him clearly he
takes with all its nevertheless to reflect its future extends from the
instant goes he was not to the next now by its consciousness and
fulfilled walked and knows gives it now back is awake now he on to be
nevertheless dream goes to far because the charm works he wildet up
and to be dream goes far because to be charm works he is awake on to
be dream continues still as the charms works he wakes up and white it

* it is awake on from the dream that that collectively dreams has with
its old conceptions finally cleared up replaces the isolation and sets
to their places the vision which we one is on one waves to be lived is
a river that flow must leaves it to flow and the krieger says decided
it to time you to decide who you is where you goes on which side you
stands it time that you understands that you at the wheel of the time
turns we to lead one fight meissten to carry it in the quiet from only
the result pours from them raus

* and it can do it longs as a krieger feels it it is existent it the
secret knows now there feels it in the rhythm the charm the monotonie
and energy like still never replaces the theory and it clearly harmony
brings the strength to be to dream truely it has it is awake
production now it on to be nevertheless dream goes to far because the
charm works it is awake on to be nevertheless dream goes far because
to be charm works it is awake on to be dream continues still as the
charms works it is awake on it is awake on to be nevertheless dream
goes far because the charm works it is awake on to be nevertheless
dream goes far because to be charm works it is awake on to be dream
goes many as the charms continues to work it wakes up and knows it
* the charm of the music gives also you the strength goes to the next
walked then has dus created the krieger shows you a piece free country
a place in your head which it found and its hand gives you which you
affects and you feel it are one it happen it have the same vision see
now you which it see and you see to krieger everywhere and all are you
admit each face each history are to you related it to fight for to
live krieger are to live therefore here for the dream and all are part
from you and to give you a feeling does not have like a sign you it
for a long time misses so for a long time you fights you alone is
steps in the circle and Mach truely which you know and which
realization brings the strength with which you frees itself and freely
solved from fear completely released which in you doest then grow up
you and your dream goes far because your charm works you grows on
nevertheless your dream goes far because the charm works you grows on
nevertheless continues your dream as the charms works wachat you up
and it knows you grows up and your dream goes to far because the charm
works you grows up and your dream goes to far because the charm works
you grows on nevertheless continues your dream as the charms works

los, lasst uns mal uebersetzen:

the warrior wakes up he was made a warrior overnight
gets ready and thinks to himself:
we've been waiting around for the longest time
wasting words the longest time and it makes us content
now we're all running out of time all over
the sleeper wakes up and is ready
and unbound by space lives in his vision
goes through his whole dream on a secret mission
and he fights to wake the others up from their dream
because he knows there are many little warriors in among them
so he doesn't say come with me
he asks what's your dream - asks why are you here
he has the power the magic and as time flows it becomes clear
he takes with his whole mind his future was
furthered in the present through is consciousness and fulfilled from the moment
he took the next step and knows now there's no turning back
then he wakes up but the dream goes on because the spell binds
he wakes up and his dream goes on because his spell binds
he wakes up and his dream goes on as the spell binds
he wakes up and knows it
*
he wakes up from the dream that the masses dream
he finally cleaned out all his old perceptions
removes isolation and sets in its place
the vision that we alone are on a wave
because life is a stream that flows must let it flow
and the warrior says firmly that it's time to define you
who you are where you're going on which side you stand
it's time you understand that you're spinning on the wheel of time
we're starting a fight that most people battle in silence
only the result boils out of them
*
and he can see it as a warrior he feels he's alive
now that he knows the secret it drives him
in the rhythm of the magic of monotony
and energy like a never-argued theory
and it's clear to him that harmony brings the power
his dream came true he did it himself
then he wakes up but the dream goes on because the spell binds
he wakes up and his dream goes on because his spell binds
he wakes up and his dream goes on as the spell binds
he wakes up
then he wakes up but the dream goes on because the spell binds
he wakes up and his dream goes on because his spell binds
he wakes up and his dream goes on as the spell binds
he wakes up and knows it
*
the magic of the music also gives you power
take the next step and then you have done it
the warrior gives you a piece of free soil a space
that he found in your head and gives you his hand
and it works on you you feel it you both are one it came true
you both have the same vision now you see what he sees
and you see warriors everywhere and know them all
every face every story is related to you
they're fighting for life that's why they've all come here
life for the dream and all are a piece of you and give you
a feeling like a blazon you've been missing so long
that as long as you fight you are never alone
go in the circle and do whatever you know
and the recognition brings the power that you free yourself with
and so free from fear completely released
resolved what was inside
and then you wake up and your dream goes on because the spell binds
you wake up and your dream goes on because the spell binds
you wake up and your dream goes on as the spell binds
you wake up and know it
you wake up and your dream goes on because the spell binds
you wake up and your dream goes on because the spell binds
you wake up and your dream goes on as the spell binds
you wake up and know it



notes:
This is not a 100% literal translation. I tried to keep up the flows as best I could, but English is different from German and sometimes won't allow it.
There are a few places where there seemed to be some spelling mistakes. In the second line of the first chorus, "wildet auf" (goes crazy) should probably be "wacht auf" (wakes up); there was a "war" that might be better as "wahr", and in the first verse I think "durchausreitet" was misspelled. These have been tentatively corrected.
I couldn't do much with the "erloest..." line at the end of the last verse, so this translation is more-or-less made up. It mostly fits.
I translated "schildt" as "blazon" because it worked lyrically. The word means "sign", but in the sense of "road sign" not "sign from above". The image here is of a badge or other identifying mark, turning on the very old root of the word which is (as could be expected) "shield", specifically in this case the heraldic markings on them. A blazon in this sense is the markings or device on the shield, which fits the sense of a mark of unity more than a protective device.

Got this as audio? Seems cool, and I haven't heard die Vier in a while.

I have an Aphex Twin remix of the song, which sounds really good and creepy (as anything Aphex Twin touches does). Wanted to do a video to it; I just wanted to make sure the lyrics weren't too nasty. They sound like they'll fit right in with the concept (no, not a Berserk video, that's too obvious). :)

The remix only repeats the one part of the song, about being awake but still dreaming as the spell binds...creepy. Definitely fits with my idea. :)
