Rammstein
A human burns
Rammstein
The smell of flesh in the air
Rammstein
A child dies
Rammstein
The sun shines

Rammstein
A sea of flame
Rammstein
Blood coagulating on the asphalt
Rammstein
Mothers cry
Rammstein
The sun shines

Rammstein
A mass grave
Rammstein
No escape
Rammstein
No birds sing any more
Rammstein
The sun shines

Rammstein

    General Comment:The base is called 'Ramstein Air Force Base' (RAFB) *not* 'Rammstein AFB'. Also, I've been there (military brat) it's huge, just like a little America. Ramstein is the name of the village [of Ramstein] surrounding the base. And to the guy who called this song stupid, you ought to piss off and keep your comments to yourself, this song is a dedication to the dozens of people killed in a violent airshow crash back in the mid-80s, don't be so insensitive.

    General Comment:not just a city
    not only an airbase
    not only the biggest us-base outside usa
    not only an axident
    but
    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...

    General Comment:The song is about an air-crash at the Ramstein Airforce in Germany base that occurred in the late 80's during an air-show. The Italian aerobatics team collided during their performance and two jets crashed into the crowd killing several dozen people. The band was originally called Ramstein but added the extra 'r' to their name later and yes it can be translated as 'battering ram' into english although not easily ;-)

    General Comment:Yup but he made a LITTLE mistake they didnt add an extra R but an extra 'M' RamMstein, and it doesn't mean batering ram, it is just the name of the place where the aircrash tookplace

    General Comment:ya I heard the wanted a chant so they added the M. Like the Vikings used to chant RAMMSTEIN RAMMSTEIN before they took a castle and pludered it (because of their battering ramm). I heard that somewhere I think it was on the LAB Concert Interview.
