Bin ich schoner
Zerschneid mir das Gesicht
Bin ich starker
Brich feige mein Genick
Bin ich kluger
Tote mich und iss mein Hirn
Hab ich dein Weib
Tote mich und iss mich ganz auf
Dann iss mich ganz auf

Bin ich ehrlicher
Beiss mir die Zunge ab
Bin ich reicher
Dann nimm mir alles
Bin ich mutiger
Tote mich und iss mein Herz
Hab ich dein Weib
Tote mich und iss mich ganz auf
Dann iss mich ganz auf
Doch leck den Teller ab
Es kocht die Eifersucht

Hab ich so glatte Haut
Zieh sie in Streifen ab
Hab ich die klaren Augen
Nimm mir das Licht
Hab ich die reine Seele
Tote sie in Flammen
Habe ich dein Weib dann
Tote mich und iss mich ganz auf
Dann iss mich ganz auf
Doch leck den Teller ab
Es kocht die Eifersucht

English translate: Jealousy

Am I pretty
Then cut me in the face
Am I stronger
Break my neck in disgrace
Am I smarter
Kill me and eat my brain
I take your wife
Kill me and eat me all up
Just eat me all up

Am I honest
Then bite my tongue right off
Am I richer
Then take it all
Am I braver
Kill me and eat my heart
I take your wife
Kill me and eat me all up
Just eat me all up
And lick the table clean
We're cooking jealousy

Have I such tender skin
Tear it out in stripes
Have I the clearest eyes
Steal all the light
Have I the purest soul
Burn it in the flames
I take your wife then
Kill me and eat me all up
Just eat me all up
And lick the table clean
We're cooking jealousy

    Rammstein delves into all aspects of the human condition. Sometimes it's joyful; more often painful. Some humans are in very sick mental condtion; some are in love. Each song tells a story about a character and that character's life experience, feelings, etc. So, song topics range from love songs to abandonment, torture, and even addiction. Some are simply humorous, which I find brilliant, as it is the ultimate way to deal with this experience we, as humans, find ourselves in. Besides that, the songs are very well written, haunting at times, and performed immpeccably. All of it; the writing, the acting/performing of these story songs, the pyrotechnics, etc. ; rammstein is more of an experience than just a band. It is a commentary on us. Also, the music style ranges from heavy metal in some songs, to techno in others, to baroque guitar in still others. Some even incorporate ancient, haunting germanic fables and myths. Their videos are produced with the same quality as extremely expensive movies, using special effects of all kinds, and again employing their amazing acting ability. The lead singer, till lindemann, is the most talented actor of the group, literally becoming the character of each song. They've done songs and themes for movies like the matrix ("stripped"). There has never been a band quite like the german band rammstein, and there never will be again. To see their artistic bravery, intelligence, and musical prowess, you need go no further than to YouTube to check out their videos. Their song/video "amerika" (with the most viewings) should be your first choice, and you'll get it, although rammstein is not for everyone! Thanks for reading!
