Rammstein Lyrics

Ein Mensch brennt
Fleischgeruch liegt in der Luft
ein Kind stirbt
die Sonne scheint

ein Flammenmeer
Blut gerinnt auf dem Asphalt
Mutter schreien

    Rammstein, I bench rent.
    Rammstein I go aloft.
    In the loft.
    Rammstein, I tint shears.
    Rammstein, dishonor shines.
    Rammstein, I muffin grab.
    Rammstein, kinda dribble.
    Rammstein, kind fogle change.
    Merrrr....Rammstein, dishonor shines.
    Song ends.

    not just a city
    not only an airbase
    not only the biggest us-base outside usa
    not only an axident
    one of europes biggest coruption/conspirathy themes after ww2
    the pilote in the midle-mashine
    was the only surviving witness
    of the airplanecrash at ustica
    the reporter who found out was already on his way to germany to interview him...

    This except for talking about ramstein(the city) it also talks about the return of the band because the had done a 2 or 3 year break until 2009.Wer wartet mit Besonencheim....(The one who waits with composure will be awarded at the right time now that the waiting ends lend your ears to a legend Ramm-stein)

    I think, if you all would rather argue over who is a fan of who, and who is a retard, we should at least argue so as not to argue over and disgrace rammstein's place. linkin park needs to learn, but not all that person's facts are wrong totally. So everyone grow up about it. leave the interpretations to those who actually have something to say. also, check your facts before you print them on the internet. for fuck's sake. anyhow, this song seems to be an interpretation of the airshow disaster, yes.

    Dude seriously, Linkin Park dude, you make linkin park look like crap. Linkin park is a great band, my favorite in fact, and a stupid chud such as yourself makes them look very sad, so go apply to another website and piss those people off. By the way, I'm allowed to say anything I want about you, because I believe that I even agreed with you on one of the interpretations, and I regret it every day of my life, I may even contemplate suicide over it. And before you go taking my previous suicide statement literally, I was kidding you retard. Have a nice day.

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    What does Rammstein mean ?

    Actually the original source is "Ramstein" which is a city in Germany with an airport. Here a tragic disaster took place in 1988 as during an Airshow a plane crashed into a crowd of people and 70 were killed. The horror was very close to the public because many people were filming the airshow and so for days and weeks the pictures and sounds of screaming people running for their lives and shouting for their dependants were on TV. The band picked up this disaster and made a song from it:

    Rammstein - ein Mensch brennt
    Rammstein - Fleischgeruch in der Luft
    rammstein...ein Kind stirbt
    rammstein...die Sonne scheint
    rammstein...ein Flammenmeer
    rammstein...Blut gerinnt auf dem Asphalt
    rammstein...Mütter schreien
    rammstein...die Sonne scheint

    Rammstein...A burning man
    Smell of meat in the air
    A child dies
    The sun is shining

    A sheet of flames
    Blood congeals on the asphalt
    Mothers screaming
    The sun is shining

    The name itself is a play of words.
    "rammen" means "to ram"
    "Stein" means "stone"
    In german words can easily be combined to one word, so "Rammstein" means "ramming stone" but also refers to "Ramstein", the name of the disaster city, which literally has nothing to do with a "ramming stone", we don't name our cities like that...
    "Ramming stone" is probably supposed to express a certain achaic power...
