Text heard on Sample:

DIESE VERSCHLOSSENE TÜR
dahinter geschah das Furchtbare
Du siehst was dahinter geschau
Weilen Deine Augen fern von deinem Leib?
Oder schon im Tod?
Der Tod [aber] ist offen
Erst dahinter leben die Geheimnisse

(THIS CLOSED-SHUT DOOR
behind it happened the horrible
you see what happened behind it
Do your eyes linger far from your body?
Or already in death?
[But] death is open
it is only behind it that the secrets live)
