Text heard on Sample:

Ich gehe fort.
Es fehlte mir etwas für diese Erde, um sie zu tragen
Und von ihr getragen zu werden.
Zu leicht bin ich wohl und zu unruhig.
Zu fremd und zu fern für den Boden unter meinen Füßen.

I’m leaving.
I lack something for this earth, in order to bear it
And to be borne by it.
It seems I am too light and restless.
Too foreign and to distant for the ground beneath my feet.
