Jaguar

duh jaguara prolazi kroz ogradu
jaguar je naša sloboda

prijatelj mi je dao dragocenu stvar
komadić Berlinskog zida

ali ovaj zid koji grade
kroz srce moje zemlje

prekriven našom zastavom
taj zid je mrtvački kovčeg za moju zemlju

ruke se pružaju kroz otvore
i tapšu sve dok se otvori ne zatvore

pa kroz njih više ne može
da prođe čak ni muzika

već samo duhovi
svih stvari koje smo izdali

ovo je zid žaljenja
jaguarov grob

The Jaguar

the ghost of a jaguar walks through the fence
the jaguar is our freedom

a friend gave me a precious thing
a little fragment of the Berlin wall

but this wall they are building
straight across my heartland

with our flag draped across it
is the coffin of my country

hands reach through the gaps
to clasp, until the gaps are sealed

and even music
cannot get through

but only the ghosts
of all we have betrayed

this is the wall of lamentation
the grave of the jaguar
