I had today a tour with Kelly from US and her friend from Germany.
Both booked this Kurt Vonnegut Tour.
He never read the book. Kelly is a very big fan of Kurt Vonnegut novels.
Her favourite book is "Slaughterhouse 5".

Before this couple arrived in Dresden, Kelly introduce him in this novel.

We finished this tour,and then she told me.

And her is here tattoo:

So it goes!

We talked about the translation, Kelly and me said: "It is not a translation, what will teach us this three words."

On the way at home, I thought, what will this meaning.
And I remembered me about a song from the 80's: NewVaveGermany

Ein Jahr Lyrics - FEHLFARBEN

Keine Atempause Geschichte wird gemacht – es geht voran
keine Atempause Geschichte wird gemacht – es geht voran

Spacelabs falln auf Inseln Vergessen macht sich breit – es geht voran
Spacelabs falln auf Inseln Vergessen macht sich breit – es geht voran

Berge explodieren Schuld hat der Präsident – es geht voran
Berge explodieren Schuld hat der Präsident – es geht voran

Graue B-Film-Helden regieren bald die Welt – es geht voran
graue B-Film-Helden regieren bald die Welt – es geht voran

Es geht voran – es geht voran

Es geht voran"

I don't know, but it will be the answer of the translation:
What you are thinking?
