"Adios" as written by Richard Z. Kruspe, Paul Landers, Till Lindemann, Doktor Christian Lorenz, Oliver Riedel and Christoph Doom Schneider....
Er legt die Nadel auf die Ader
und bittet die Musik herein
zwischen Hals und Unterarm
die Melodie fährt leise ins Gebein

Los! Los! Los!
Bop bop shu bop

Er hat die Augen zugemacht
in seinem Blut tobt eine Schlacht
ein Heer marschiert durch seinen Darm
die Eingeweide werden langsam warm

Los! Los! Los!
Bop bop shu bop

Nichts ist für dich
nichts war für dich
nichts bleibt für dich
für immer

Er nimmt die Nadel von der Ader
die Melodie fährt aus der Haut
Geigen brennen mit Gekreisch
Harfen schneiden sich ins Fleisch
er hat die Augen aufgemacht
doch er ist nicht aufgewacht

Nichts ist für dich
nichts war für dich
nichts bleibt für dich
für immer

In English:
He lays the needle in the vein
and he asks the music to come inside
between his throat and forearm
the melody travels softly in the bones

Go! Go! Go!
Bop bop shu bop

He has closed his eyes
a battle rages in his blood
an army marches through his bowel
the intestines become warm slowly

Go! Go! Go!
Bop bop shu bop

Nothing is for you
nothing was for you
nothing remains for you
forever

He takes the needle from the vein
the melody travels out of the skin
violins burn with shrieking
harps cut the flesh
he has opened his eyes
but he is not awake

Nothing is for you
nothing was for you
nothing remains for you
forever

    General CommentNot completely what this song is about. Part of me says drugs, the other part says music. It's a good song either way.

    General CommentI'd say it's about drugs.

    Translation:

    He lays the needle in the vein
    and he asks the music to come inside
    between his throat and forearm
    the melody travels softly in the bones

    Go! Go! Go!

    He has closed his eyes
    a battle rages in his blood
    an army marches through his bowel
    the intestines become warm slowly

    Go! Go! Go!

    Nothing is for you
    nothing was for you
    nothing remains for you
    forever

    He takes the needle from the vein
    the melody travels out of the skin
    violins burn with shrieking
    harps cut the flesh
    he has opened his eyes
    but he is not awake

    Nothing is for you
    nothing was for you
    nothing remains for you
    forever

    General CommentIt is obviously about Herion, this seems to be correct because herion is known to give you constipation really bad and cause halluciantions.

    He puts the needle inside the vein
    (There goes the herion)

    Asks the music to come in
    (Herion usually lightens the mind, in Tills case maybe music would let him rest)

    Between his throat and forearm
    (The inside bend of the arm (usually were you shoot up) or possibly his heart)

    The melody goes softly through the bones
    (He has the sweet feeling on the drug taking place)

    He has his eyes closed
    (Then the hallucinations come)

    In his blood a battle rages
    (Probably freaks the hell out of him with pain)

    An army marches through his bowel
    (the constipation)

    The intestines slowly become warm
    (When the herion has run its course your bowels loosen thus you need to take a crap really bad)

    General CommentActually is this about suicide..... the poison he is injectiong is being replaced by the metaphor of "music" The only true reason I know it's death is the line
    "He opened his eyes
    But he is not awake"
    This COULD be some kind of drug overdose too... I dunno.... R+ forever.... -Thauglor

    General CommentGood song,the lyrics are a little weird. I'm just not too sure about the whole "army marches through his bowel" thing.

    General CommentHe opened his eyes
    But he is not awake

    ...I like the German Version better. It's sounds more chilling. And if you translate it correctly it would say:
    He opened his eyes but he did not wake up.
    But the meaning is the same =)

    General CommentI agree; it certainly has drug-use overtones, but I am more inclined to say that the actual meaning of the song lies in the hopelessness and meaninglessness of life. The chorus lines (Nothing remains for you) seem to support this. Also, the "breakdown" of the music that occurs just after the midpoint of the song, like the one in "Rein Raus", is simply the most awesome sound ever made by anything.

    General CommentOh, by the way; if you listen carefully after each set of three "Los"es, someone (Richard?) says something that sound like "bop bop shu bop". Turn up the volume and listen closely; it's really there...
