English explaination: "The masters of the world" is a strictly political song and poem about the few and very small ruling upper class (who has everything) and the mega masses of ppl who can not change anything. And about the destroying of this world by the final output, exploit and profit greed. It´s a dark "future painting in music and lyrics". Hildegard makes it in poetic metaphers. But there is no doubt what she means.
