Murderous

Who murders others in cold blood
Tortures his victims
In boundless hatred
May not call himself human
He has a level under the beast

He who gives the orders
Or who allows such things to happen
Is the proper mastermind of this evil

However, when they leave the body
They must pay a high price
They will then wish they had never given such orders
Or condoned such atrocities

Even kings and statesmen are not exempt from it
If their behaviour is like that
But then their regret comes too late

They look in a mirror of cruelty
And have to face the consequences
What they have done to others

They cannot redeem themselves
Nor can they escape punishment
The law hits them with full harshness

But as long as they can only see
As far as the edge of their plate
They will go on and lull themselves into safety

Because they do not believe
In that divine law
They run away from their own conscience

They may deceive themselves
But they cannot deceive God
Who lives in every heart
