2015 | In Deep Waters | 8. Lampedusa | 3:37

Sole e spiaggia
la dolce vita.
That‘s what I deserve
for my hard work.
I‘m German,
always busy,
we know how to work.

Just in front of Lampedusa‘s coast
a ship is sinking full of refugees.
Longing for a simple life in peace
many find their rest in ocean‘s bed.

Sole e spiaggia
la dolce vita.
That‘s what I deserv
e for my hard work.
Why should I help
those strangers,
they will steel my work!

A man is crying for his beloved wife.
The waves bring her last kiss to the white beach.
„Please find a place to raise our son.
I will watch you from the sky.“

If I were the boy’s
desperate father,
I would love him just the same
and protect him.
Might it be I tried
to go to a place
where I see a chance for him to
grow?

Sole e spiaggia
la dolce vita.
That‘s what I deserve
for my hard work.
When I help one,
there will come more,
spoiling my paradise.

Sole e spiaggia
my life is great,
I worked so hard and hard!
Take those beggers
back to where they belong!
I‘m on holiday!
Let me live my German dreams of life,
don‘t waste my time.
Solve your problems - work like us.
Don‘t bother me!
Your damn fate is
not my concern.
Don‘t touch
my land.
Go away,
just go away!
