Die Künstliche Stadt Die Wolken, sie räkeln sich Unter dem endlos grauen Dach der Beklemmung. Im grell-flackerndem Schimmer, Erstickst du unter dem Schein der menschlichen Dichte. In der überfüllten Leere, Entmachtet von jeglichen Freiräumen, Versinkst du in dem pulsierenden Stadtkern Hoffnungslos in der kalten Enge. Vergewaltigt von Hoffnung und Drang Erwacht dein Puls und drosselt die Begeisterung Die Stadt der ewigen Träume, Ein Überrest an Enttäuschung Die Massen, die Furore, der Dreck Du verlierst kläglich gegen den tosenden Lärm. Leg dich nieder! Unersättliche Erschöpfung

The Artificial City The Clouds, they writhe Under the endlessly grey ceiling of oppression. In the loud-flickering shimmer, You choke under the glow of human density. In the crowded emptiness, Disempowered by any free room, You sink in the pulsating core of the city Hopeless in the cold tightness. Violated by hope and urge Your pulse awakens and the excitement chokes The city of eternal dreams, A leftover of disappointment. The masses, the sensation, the filth, You lose pathetically to the roaring noise. Lay down! Insatiable exhaustion. 26
