"Mein Herz Brennt (english)" as written by Richard Z. Kruspe, Paul Landers, Till Lindemann, Doktor Christian Lorenz, Oliver Riedel and Christoph Doom Schneider....
Nun liebe Kinder gebt fein acht
Ich bin die Stimme aus dem Kissen
Ich hab euch etwas mitgebracht
Hab es aus meiner Brust gerissen
Mit diesem Herz hab ich die Macht
Die Augenlider zu erpressen
Ich singe bis der Tag erwacht
Ein heller Schein am Firmament

Mein Herz brennt

Sie kommen zu euch in der Nacht
Dämonen Geister schwarze Feen
Sie kriechen aus dem Kellerschacht
Und werden unter euer Bettzeug sehen

Nun liebe Kinder gebt fein acht
Ich bin die Stimme aus dem Kissen
Ich hab euch etwas mitgebracht
Ein heller Schein am Firmament

Mein Herz brennt
Mein Herz brennt

Sie kommen zu euch in der Nacht
Und stehlen eure kleinen heißen Tränen
Sie warten bis der Mond erwacht
Und drücken sie in meine kalten Venen

Nun liebe Kinder gebt fein acht
Ich bin die Stimme aus dem Kissen
Ich singe bis der Tag erwacht
Ein heller Schein am Firmament

Mein Herz brennt
Mein Herz brennt
Mein Herz brennt
Mein Herz brennt

Mein Herz brennt
Mein Herz brennt
Mein Herz brennt

(Mein Herz)

Mein Herz brennt

    General Commentthis song is one of their best. as a psyche-up song it is excellent, mainly because of the sudden transition from quiet to v loud. having now read the what the lyrics mean in english has given a whole new meaning to the song, its like some sort of fairy tale warning to kids.... maybe some german tradition, i dont know. german is such an ominous language when spoken like rammstein speak. anyway, if you need a song to get u hyped up, try this.

    General CommentThe lyrics are really cool. I don't know if there's deeper meaning in them that I don't know about, I think there probably is. I think this song would go really well with an adventurous/eerie music video, but I'm always thinking of stuff liek that.

    General CommentI have recently become a RAMMS+TEIN fan and I must say that this is probably one of their best songs ever. The song really has a foreboding/morbid theme to it. The guitar along with the orchestra give it more depth.

    General CommentThis reminds me of how nightmares were once thought to have been caused by demons or other malevolent spirits (I think the original root of the word ment a little demon jumping on your chest or something). Most of the songs on "Mutter" seem to be related to fairy tales anyway.

    General Commentyes. origanally, this song was going to be about 'the little sandman' who comes and steals childrens scalps while they sleep, but ended up like this. Mutter is their best album besides Reise reise, because the words in the songs actually mean something. this is my favorite overall Rammstein song. a note to new fans- please learn a little German before posting about the lyrics. I myself am German, and these songs are a million times better in German if you understand them.

    General CommentI feel that all of MUTTER is about Birth, and Childhood, in my eyes, I have to agree with everyone that this is about nightmares.

    General CommentI allways imagine a man putting his children to bed. And he's trying to comfort them by telling them he'll protect them fromwhatever may come in the night.
