The walls that have been put up are so hard to break down.

I thought my home was a courtyard,
surrounded by walls enclosing me in.

Each parent in his own tower, the guard.
Watching over these walls of Berlin.

To many it looked like a Garden of Eden.
But I had not the choice or the freedom.
What's it like on the inside of paradise?
These walls have such a clever disguise.
 
When death took its mark I thought it'd be over.
So I wandered aimlessly as a rover,
never realizing I kept these walls buried inside.
Death did not it defy; it's still very much alive!
 
I think through the years these walls reconstructed,
but never, not once was the process interrupted.
Maybe, only when I lay down and die.
Then, shall it only be when these walls subside?
