Wasser bis zum Hals

From toe to top, people are vain, I know
And whoever doesn’t like to sweat sheds tears instead of sweat, I know
Do you search for the comfort in me that I sometimes look for in bottles
Or do you just blow your nose in me like your crumpled handkerchief?

I can’t stand you anymore and I can’t see you anymore
I can’t see you tolerated anymore

You’re up to your neck in water
You’re wet up to your neck
And it’s already ruined your cellar
You’re up to your neck in water
You’ll get wetter, at any rate
You’ve built too close to the water

You analyze everything to the last detail, you already start to begin your résumé
And a weight’s off your mind, it falls right onto your toe
Self-pity even without grief – it increases rapidly
You also aren’t a person to joke with in moderation and that bothers me

I can’t stand you anymore …

You whine and criticize, everyone else always outclasses you a bit
Whoever’s singing the blues each day gets out of breath quickly
You don’t take any steps because you’re standing on your own shoelaces
And don’t understand how you’re getting on my nerves with it

I can’t stand you anymore …

You’re up to your neck in water
You’re wet up to your neck
And it’s already ruined your cellar
You’re up to your neck in water
You’ll get wetter, at any rate
You’re built too close to the water
