Text heard on Sample:

Wir Geretteten,
Immer noch essen an uns die Würmer der Angst.
Unser Gestirn ist vergraben im Staub.
Wir Geretteten
Bitten euch:
Zeigt uns langsam eure Sonne.
Führt uns von Stern zu Stern...

(We the saved,
The worms of fear continue to consume us.
Our brows are interred in dust.
We the saved
Plead with you:
Show us, slowly, your sun.
Guide us from star to star...)
