"Sonne" as written by Richard Z. Kruspe, Paul Landers, Till Lindemann, Doktor Christian Lorenz, Oliver Riedel and Christoph Doom Schneider....
Eins, zwei, drei, vier, fünf, sechs,
sieben, acht, neun, aus

Alle warten auf das Licht
fürchtet euch fürchtet euch nicht
die Sonne scheint mir aus den Augen
sie wird heute Nacht nicht untergehen
und die Welt zählt laut bis zehn

Eins
Hier kommt die Sonne
Zwei
Hier kommt die Sonne
Drei
Sie ist der hellste Stern von allen
Vier
Hier kommt die Sonne

Die Sonne scheint mir aus den Händen
kann verbrennen, kann euch blenden
wenn sie aus den Fäusten bricht
legt sich heiß auf das Gesicht
sie wird heute Nacht nicht untergehen
und die Welt zählt laut bis zehn

Eins
Hier kommt die Sonne
Zwei
Hier kommt die Sonne
Drei
Sie ist der hellste Stern von allen
Vier
Hier kommt die Sonne
Fünf
Hier kommt die Sonne
Sechs
Hier kommt die Sonne
Sieben
Sie ist der hellste Stern von allen
Acht, neun
Hier kommt die Sonne

Die Sonne scheint mir aus den Händen
kann verbrennen, kann dich blenden
wenn sie aus den Fäusten bricht
legt sich heiß auf dein Gesicht
legt sich schmerzend auf die Brust
das Gleichgewicht wird zum Verlust
lässt dich hart zu Boden gehen
und die Welt zählt laut bis zehn

Eins
Hier kommt die Sonne
Zwei
Hier kommt die Sonne
Drei
Sie ist der hellste Stern von allen
Vier
Und wird nie vom Himmel fallen
Fünf
Hier kommt die Sonne
Sechs
Hier kommt die Sonne
Sieben
Sie ist der hellste Stern von allen
Ach, neun
Hier kommt die Sonne

    General Commentthis is song is a metaphor to desires in human life, the way we perceive it and how it is perceived if we were standing outside of our lives. There's a song called Coma Black, which im still trying to figure out the meaning behind it, but i think both songs gets out the same message: as much we crave to fulfill our desires and dreams and goals, (which summarizes the "point of life"), its simply impossible to truly satisfy ur desires, you always want more. think about the last time u had sex or masturbated, u go through all the effort just to satisfy ur desire of getting an orgasm, but when it really comes, its very short and afterwards its not as satisfying, well think about all the other desires u crave to achieve, maybe getting an A in clase? well wen u do get an A, u realize it doesnt feel as good as u thot and u want more, u want to get A the next time, then the next time ur report card comes, its simply not enough. well then u might argue that the deepest human desire is to be happy, well if u relate the metaphor in this song to fulfulling ur desire to be happy (survive), its like saying our deepest desire is to survive, but while we are, we realize being alive isnt enough, we want more, this is why we have all the other goals and desires, but relate it back u can never be happy, as long as we are in this supposed reality world, and being alive. relating back to the song, life is about counting and waiting and suffering while waiting for this supposed "light" that ull never get, and wen u get it, it can burn u and blind u and give u all the other things u dont expect and dont neccessarily want.

    General CommentAfter watching the video, it came off to me as they were giving her the drug, & the girl just wanted more & more. When the one guy gave her the gold, she didn't look satisfied, because she wanted more. & So they worked for her, & she controlled them. At the part at the table they stare out of the corner of their eye, as if to interpret that they knew what was going on the whole time, but didn't act on it to try to help her.
    IDK, it just made me think of people serving her, & she was never satisfied, then she finally dies.

    General CommentThis song is so amazing and eerie, it seems like no interpretation suits it better than that it's about the bombing of Hiroshima; the verses are from the perspective of the Enola Gay flight crew. At the very end, you can almost see the shadows on the pavement... it's creepy. The line "Und wird nie vom Himmel fallen" also notes that Hiroshima represents the dawn of the atomic age; the threat of nuclear war will thus hang ever-present over future world relations, and "never fall" or cease to exist. It also fits with the military themes in much of Mutter, though it's something to ponder as to why Links 2-3-4 (which is all about portraying the soldier as a noble character) leads directly into this song.

    General CommentIn the Lichtspeilhaus DVD, it shows a behind the scenes look at the making of the video for this song. While it does have drug influences in it (where Snow White not only snorts the grounded gold the dwarves mine for her like cocaine, but also overdoses on it and dies while bathing), some of the band say that the song was originally written for a boxer. Till describes that his ideal video interpretation was to show a boxer walking slowly out of the hall in his robe, facing the crowd and the lights, while the line "Hier kommt die Sonne" plays - the boxer is the sun, the winner, the wanted.

    General Commentadding to that, notice it never says "zehn" the song never actually counted to ten, (except wen it says and the world counts TO ten) but in the refrains it always end in acht, neun. and in the begining summarizes wat i said in my earlier post by counting to neun, AUS, NOT zehn.

    General Commentits important to note that in the first refrain its "kann euch blenden" and the second is "kann dich blenden" the first is talking about all of you, the second one is directed only at the person whos already got the sun in his hands. thot this might signify something i cannot recall at this moment.

    General CommentThe song was written as the theme song for a boxer. The reason that they're counting to ten is because if you're on the ground for ten seconds you're out; rather than actually saying ten they just skip to "out."
    One. Two. Three. Four. Five. Six. Seven. Eight. Nine. Out.
    A lot of their songs have deep meaning, but as this was originally written for a boxer it's obviously about a boxer. I wouldn't advise trying to over-analyze this one.

    General CommentI'm probably not going to get a reply or whatever to this, but here it is...

    Are you insane werumm?!!!! I felt insulted that someone would do that to such a great song when I heard it! Yes, Sonne is a great song, and yes, it is sung in German, but that doesn't give anyone the right to take its melody and replace the words that make it sound all Nazi! Then again, I was pretty upset when someone at work told me they were Nazis, because I knew they weren't, so I may be overreacting. As for the song, like I said earlier, it is hands down one of Rammstein's best, along with Rosenrot, Speiluhr, Sehnsucht, Du hast, Benzin, and a whole lot of others ^_^!

    General CommentActually, the song was originally written for a boxer, but upon hearing the song, the bozer thought it made him sound too cruel. You can note this by the countdown squence in the beginning, and also by the references to the hands holding power. Since this song is about die Sonne (sun), and the swastika is a symbol of the sun in ancient history, the boxer (Vitali Klitschko), did not want the label of the Swastika. Since it could no longer serve its original purpose, Rammstein made the song's meaning more open. I believe it symbolize the Nuclear age, in which a person who holds the will to graps power, can change the world.
