Day by day, year by year
When I walk through the streets
I see the ruins of this city
Arise to houses again

But many windows stay empty
For many there’s no return
And about the things that have just been
One does rather not talk about today anymore

But I ask, I ask myself who we are
We are ourselves! We stand here!
Divided, defeated and still
We are yet alive

We are ourselves! We stand here!
That could not yet be everything
No time to be sad
We are ourselves! We stand here!
We are ourselves!

Arisen from ruins we thought
We had made a dream come true
40 years we pulled together
Out of ashes we’ve made gold

Now everything is different once again
And what existed before, is not worth anything today
Now we can have what we want
But didn’t we actually want more?

We are ourselves! We stand here!
Again united in one country
Superrich and completely broke

We are ourselves! We stand here!
So fast nobody can defeat us
No time to feel bitter

We are ourselves
Divided, defeated and still
We exist
We are ourselves
And we’ll survive it
Because life has to go on
We are ourselves
That’s just some kind of back luck
So fast we’ll not give up now
