Insekten im Eis (Feat. Jupiter Jones) (Live in Berlin)

We laid clueless in the grass that even grows
If time stands calm and quiet
Defies rain drops, dozes, gawk up at clouds
But the air got cold and late

We let our wishes climb
Just like kites, only without string
When we wanted to grab at them later
We only grasped at nothing

An icy wind already blew around your smile
I looked at it once too often and went blind

And then the winter came and everything was white
We were caught like insects in ice
With salt in our eyelashes, with thundering ears
And we lost all of our colors
Because then the winter came and everything was white
We were caught like insects in ice
Insects in ice

We warmed our hands with discussions
And got cold feet from wanting too much
We stayed sitting and the plans stayed sketches
Stayed gaps in the protocols

And the discussions cracked like wilted leaves
With the final sentence you spoke, I went deaf

And then the winter came …

I didn’t even recognize myself when I bloomed
I didn’t recognize myself
I felt strange when I bloomed
I didn’t recognize myself
And only at the end did I realize:
The flowers were saffron and poisonous

And then the winter came and everything was white
We were caught like insects in ice
With salt in our eyelashes, with thundering ears
And we lost all of our colors
Because the winter came and everything was white
We were caught like insects in ice
With salt in our eyelashes, with thundering ears
And all of our colors lost us

We were caught like insects in ice
We were timid and scared and abandoned
