Unter den Linden

I leave this place,
To find the city my comrades
called home,
Where they sleep in the ground,
Remembered with love and hate
and lies,
Their struggles burning in
my mind as I walk the streets
where Ernst fought Adolf,
where the banner rose from ruins,
where the workers stood up and
where Ulrike failed;

I leave this place
to find the city where
east and west
met.
