Lyrics

Translation:

II. The Angel

They all have weary tongues
and bright, seamless souls.
And a yearning (as for sin) sometimes goes through their dream.
They all seem so alike;
in God's garden silent they remain, like many, many intervals
in his power and melody.
Only when their wings spread out, are they the awakeners of a wind:
as if God with his broad hands
of a sculptor went through the pages of the beginning's dark book.
