Text heard on Sample:
Elektra: Ob ich nicht höre? ob ich die
Musik nicht höre? sie kommt doch aus mir.
Die Taussende, die Fackeln tragen
und deren Tritte, deren uferlose
Myriaden Tritte überall die Erde
dumpf dröhnen machen, alle warten
auf mich: ich weiß doch, daß sie alle warten,
weil ich den Reigen führen muß...

---------------------------------------

Elektra: Can I not hear it? Not hear
the music? It comes from myself.
The thousands who carry torches
and whose footsteps, whose endless
myriad footsteps fill the whole earth
with muffled rumbling, they are all waiting
for me: I know they are all waiting,
for I must lead the dance...
