(The English translation to Sonne)

One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, out

Everyone is waiting for the light
be afraid, don't be afraid
the sun is shining out of my eyes
it will not set tonight
and the world counts loudly to ten

One
Here comes the sun
Two
Here comes the sun
Three
It is the brightest star of all
Four
Here comes the sun

The sun is shining out of my hands
it can burn, it can blind you all
when it breaks out of the fists
it lays down hotly on the face
it will not set tonight
and the world counts loudly to ten

One
Here comes the sun
Two
Here comes the sun
Three
It is the brightest star of all
Four
Here comes the sun
Five
Here comes the sun
Six
Here comes the sun
Seven
It is the brightest star of all
Eight, nine
Here comes the sun

The sun is shining out of my hands
it can burn, it can blind you
when it breaks out of the fists
it lays down hotly on your face
it lays down painfully on your chest
balance is lost
it lets you go hard to the floor
and the world counts loudly to ten

One
Here comes the sun
Two
Here comes the sun
Three
It is the brightest star of all
Four
And it will never fall from the sky
Five
Here comes the sun
Six
Here comes the sun
Seven
It is the brightest star of all
Eight, nine
Here comes the sun

    It's about a famous german boxer, actually. Nothing to do with anything white power, or nazi, or even snow white (though i love the video). In the making of they talk about the meaning. The band is vehemently anti-nazi and are actually pro-left wing proletariats. Just because they're german and sing about some rather angry stuff does not make them nazi.

    Actually this song is about Dwarves Mining for Snow white Due to the band watching old Disney videos. They went though a hole bunch of Ideas to make up the music video like the thing about boxing and a nuclear war (about Hiroshima) (which would have matched the lyrics and the depressed-sounding vocalization).. Wikipedia helps... But it does go good with about a Nuclear War.. I think it works out better... But back in the day working as a coal minor you never see the sun light due to so many hours in the mine.. So that makes sense as well that's why they put it together in a way I see it in the music video.

    Its about snow white and her addiction to golden cocaine, and the little dwarfs who wanted her to love them, but they spent all of there days in the mines. Snow white is the light, and when they thought she was going to go down, she actually was just really really high, and then came back to life... Snow white = sun, 7 dwarfs lived in darkness for her. Who ever disagrees is just plain crazy.
