"Mein Teil" as written by Oliver Riedel, Doktor Christian Lorenz, Christoph Doom Schneider, Richard Z. Kruspe, Paul Landers and Till Lindemann....
Heute treff' ich einen Herrn
Der hat mich zum Fressen gern
Weiche Teile und auch harte
Stehen auf der Speisekarte

Denn du bist, was du isst
Und ihr wisst, was es ist

Es ist mein Teil (nein)
Mein Teil (nein)
Da, das ist mein Teil (nein)
Mein Teil (nein)

Die stumpfe Klinge gut und recht
Ich blute stark und mir ist schlecht
Muss ich auch mit der Ohnmacht kämpfen
Ich esse weiter unter Krämpfen

Ist doch so gut gewürzt und so schön flambiert
Und so liebevoll auf Porzellan serviert
Dazu ein guter Wein und zarter Kerzenschein
Ja da lass ich mir Zeit, etwas Kultur muss sein

Denn du bist, was du isst
Und ihr wisst, was es ist

Es ist mein Teil (nein)
Mein Teil (nein)
Da, das ist mein Teil (nein)
Yes, it's mein Teil (nein)

Ein Schrei wird zum Himmel fahren
Schneidet sich durch Engelsscharen
Vom Wolkendach fällt Federfleisch
Auf meine Kindheit mit Gekreisch

Es ist mein Teil (nein)
Mein Teil (nein)
Da, das ist mein Teil (nein)
Yes it's mein Teil (nein)
Ah, ah, ah, ah

    General CommentIt was about this maniac who killed and ate people in front of a webcam and put it on the internet.

    Denn du bist was du isst, und ihr wisst was es ist.
    Because you are what you eat and you know what it is

    General CommentTriangle Man, the song's about a cannibal who put an ad on the internet "Heute treff ich einen Herrn
    Der hat mich zum Fressen gern
    Weiche Teile und auch harte
    stehen auf der Speisekarte", looking for a willing 'victim' to be eaten. Does anyone know the man's name? I need it for some French homework....

    General CommentFrom a news report:

    "Meiwes told the court, repeating much of his testimony from his first trial, that he had severed Brandes's penis at his request and that both had tried to eat it, without success.
    Brandes steadily lost more blood and finally dropped unconscious, at which point Meiwes said he decided to pray.
    "I didn't know whether I should pray to the devil or to God," said Meiwes, who appeared relaxed and eager to tell his version of events.
    Believing his victim to be dead, he said, he plunged a knife into his neck. Only when he later saw his videotape of the crime did he realize that Brandes had still been faintly breathing."

    This would explain the last verse perfectly, I think...Also, it was reported that Meiwes was ignored by his father during childhood, and yearned for a younger brother to eat, thus bonding the two together. This sense of loneliness perfectly fits the last verse...Brilliant song, and one can tell Rammstein certainly did their homework on this one. ^-^

    General Commenti haven't seen the video clips, but to me anyway, i didn't think it was so much to do with cannabalism as with, umm.. a blow-job.

    General Commenti mean, he is definitely referring to cannabalism. but i think there is a lot of sexual imagery too, for example "soft parts and even HARD ones are on the menu" and even "my part".. and also the cry ascending to heaven and dead angel parts falling on his innocence. i just think underneath he's drawing a comparison.

    General Commentoh and one more thing, "my part" is german slang for "penis" and "weichteile" means 'genitals'.. so yes, perhaps a reference to the fact that the man who was eaten first asked to have his penis cut off and eaten first.
