Loesch mir die Augen aus

shadow puppet
Extinguish both my eyes: I see you still;
Slam shut my ears: I can still hear you talking;
Without my mouth I can implore your will
And without my feet: towards you I keep on walking.
Break off my arms: I shall hold you tight;

My heart will yet embrace you all the same.
Suppress my heart: my brain knows no deterrent;
And if at last you set my brain aflame
I carry you still on my bloodstream’s current.
