It is time
Far in the Champagne in midsummer green,
where poppy flowers bloom between grave crosses,
the grasses whisper and sway slightly in the wind,
caresses the burial ground.
On your cross I find, dead soldier,
not your name only digits and someone
painted the number 1916, you were not
19 years old.

Indeed they have lied to you just as they still would lie to us
today.
And you gave them everything;
your strength, your youth, your life.

Dead soldier you even loved a girl ?
Certainly not, because only there where there is peace,
can thrive tenderness and trust,
you have been a soldier to die not to be young.
Maybe you thought to yourself, I fall soon,
I'm taking my pleasure  with violence as it comes.
You were determined but then,
ashamed of yourself and yet never done.

Yes, you too have been lied to as well,
just as they do with us still today.
And you gave them everything;
your strength, your youth, your life.

Soldier you went to death in faith and gladly ?
Or have you been desperate, bitter, brutalized ?
Your real enemy not recognized until the end,
I hope you were hit by a clean shot.
Or has a shell shredded your limbs,
you've screaming for your mother to last ?
Were you running on on your stumps ?
And your grave, it salvages more than one leg, one hand ?

Yes, you too have been lied to as well,
just as they do with us still today.
And you gave them everything;
your strength, your youth, your life.

There remained the cross as the only trace
of your life, but listen to my oath:
Fight for peace and be vigilant as
if humanity falls again on lies,
then it may happen that soon no one is longer alive
to bury the billions of deaths.
But far more and more people are willing to
prevent this war, it is time.

Yes, you too have been lied to as well,
just as they still do today.
And you gave them everything;
your strength, your youth, your life.
