germania lyrics – laibach

oh my beloved land
upon thee no woe
awaiting like a gentle friend
wherever i may go
green vast forests
fill my lungs with life
north, south, east or west
winter cold (cuts) like a knife

[chorus:]
germania, germania!
where my forefathers dwelt
germania, germania!
of thy blood i descend
our north sea gives,
our north sea takes,
oh ancient germania,
my land of a thousand lakes
behold our grey skies
where odin reigns
they match the colour of our eyes
winter, frost, eternal rain!

[chorus:]
germania, germania!
where my forefathers dwelt
germania, germania!
of thy blood i descend
life often very hard
in this world of snow
forever engraved in my heart
where northern winds blow
oh my beloved land
upon thee no woe
awaiting like a gentle friend
wherever i may go

[chorus:]
germania, germania!
where my forefathers dwelt
germania, germania!
of thy blood i descend
where my forefathers dwelt
of thy blood i descend
where my forefathers dwelt
of thy blood i descend
of thy blood i descend!
