"Eifersucht (english)" as written by Oliver Riedel, Doktor Christian Lorenz, Christoph Doom Schneider, Richard Z. Kruspe, Paul Landers and Till Lindemann....
Bin ich schöner
Zerscheind mir das Gesicht
Bin ich stärker
Brich feige mein Genick

Bin ich klüger
Töte mich und iss mein Hirn
Hab ich dein Weib
Töte mich und iss mich ganz auf

Dann iss mich ganz auf

Bin ich ehrlicher
Beiß mir die Zunge ab
Bin ich reicher
Dann nimm mit alles

Bin ich mutiger
Töte mich und iss mein Herz
Hab ich dein Weib
Töte mich und iss mich ganz auf

Dann iss mich ganz auf
Doch leck den Teller ab

Es kocht die eifersucht
Eifersucht
Eifersucht
E-e-eifersucht

Eifersucht
Eifersucht
Eifersucht
E-e-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
Töte sie in Flammen
Habe ich dein Weib dann
Töte mich und iss mich ganz auf

Dann iss mich ganz auf
Doch leck den Teller ab

Es kocht die eifersucht
Eifersucht
Eifersucht
E-e-eifersucht

Eifersucht
Eifersucht
Eifersucht
E-e-eifersucht

Eifersucht
Eifersucht
Eifersucht
Eifersucht

    General Commenti like how he says pure soul, and i think he is teasing another man in this song by the way he laughs, it sounds so cool if your wearing earphones it starts in one ear and moves to the other like Till is standing behind you and slowly moving along the back of your head!

    General CommentI'm German, and until coming across SongMeanings.net I didn't even know that Rammstein changed some of their songs into English versions. I found some of these new versions to be lyrically poorer than the original; it might have to do with them not being quite so fluent in English, but also with the fact that several songs rely on word-play, most of which will inevitably get lost in any translation. Having said that, THIS version is one of the best translations I have come across here. In the original, the line "Es kocht die Eifersucht" means "jealousy is cooking" or "boiling", as a metaphor for "jealousy is raging". "WE're cooking jealousy" fits the mood much better, I think. Good one!

    General Commentaheheh....
    a primitive alternative? Really, for it contrasts how to resolve particular envies with consumption ((much like dali's idea of the skin being a mere glove)) in this sense it's the resolve with extreme envy, rage....

    Maybe it's a physco's DIY.... . . . . . hee hee?

    Just me: the background sometimes sounds like till is laughing or just repeating the "ei" sound to begin "eifersucht"

    General CommentIn many cannibalistic cultures, eating certain parts of someones body would transfer certain qualities. brain for intelligence, heart for courage.

    General CommentThe thing with Rammstein is that they are almost never literal with their lyrics so to me it seems like a man is envious of another for everything that he has. He may even have his loved one. He basicly tries to say, "What does he have that I dont?" Not literally of course, he strips the man of everything he is envious of in an attempt to make himself seem better, possibly to the one he loves.
