Hier ist die engl. Übersetzung des Wader-Text:

Deep in the Champagne in midsummer green,
where red poppys bloom between gravestones,
the grass whispers and sways smoothlyin the wind, which sweeps gently over the graveyard.
On your cross, dead soldier, I can not find your name,
only numbers and someone painted the number 1916
and you weren’t even 19 years old.

Yes, also you have been told lies by them yet,
just like they still do it with us today.
And you gave them everything:
your strength, your youth, your life.

Did you, dead soldier, ever love a girl? Certainly not, because only where there is peace
tenderness and trust can flourish.
You were a soldier to die, not to be young.
Maybe you thought: “I might fall soon.
I will grab any chance for pleasure, if necessary by force.”
You were determined to do so, however
you became ashamed of yourself and never did it.

Yes, also you have been told lies by them yet,
just like they still do it with us today.
And you gave them everything:
your strength, your youth, your life.

Soldier, did you die full of conviction and by choice?Or did you desperately, embittered, brutalized
not recognize your true enemy until the end?
I hope you were hit by a straight shot.
Or did a bullet torn your limbs to pieces? Did you cry for your mother until the very end?
Did you continue to run on your torn legs?
And your grave: is there more in it than just a leg and a hand?
Yes, also you have been told lies by them yet,
just like they still do it with us today.
And you gave them everything:
your strength, your youth, your life.

Only the cross remained as the only trace of your life.
But listen to my oath to fight for peace and to stay alerted:
If mankind falls for lies one more timeit might be possible that soon no one lives anymore,
no one who will bury the billions of dead.
But by now there are more and more people
willing to prevent this war.
It is time.

Yes, also you have been told lies by them yet,
just like they still do it with us today.
And you gave them everything:
your strength, your youth, your life.
