Track Name: Feuer (Remastered 2017)
See how the fire burns
Know, the ages, they turn
Here, you'll take my hand
You will follow, you shall understand.

See how the towers fall
Hear how the false leaders call
Feel the old order die
Hear how the riches cry

Fire, let it burn
Fire, feel how it burns

Now, fulfill the church with fire
Look into the eyes of a liar
Now, here comes the sun
Soldiers, see them on the run
This, this ain't a dream
No adventure your TV screen
So go, lose all your pride
Find perception 'til the end of the night

Dies Feuer brennt in meinem Verstand
Brennt meiner Seele
Brennt in meiner Hand
Dies Feuer, mein heiliger Krieg
Dies Feuer ist der Sonne Sieg
Dies Feuer in einer kalten Welt
Dies Licht, das Dunkel erhellt.

Fire, let it burn. Fire, feel how it burns
Feuer, lass' es brennen. Feuer, sieh wie es brennt
Fühlst du wie es brennt?
