"Benzin" as written by Richard Z. Kruspe, Paul Landers, Till Lindemann, Doktor Christian Lorenz, Oliver Riedel and Christoph Doom Schneider....
Ich brauche zeit, kein Heroin
Kein Alkohol, kein Nikotin
Brauch keine Hilfe, kein Koffein
Doch Dynamit und Terpentin

Ich brauche Öl für Gasolin
Explosiv wie Kerosin
Mit viel Oktan und frei von Blei
Einen Kraftstoff wie Benzin

Benzin
Benzin
Benzin, Ja

Brauch keinen freund, kein Kokain
Brauch weder Arzt noch Medizin
Brauch keine frau, nur Vaselin
Etwas Nitroglyzerin

Ich brauche gelt für Gasolin
Explosiv wie Kerosin
Mit viel Oktan und frei von Blei
Einen Kraftstoff wie Benzin

Benzin
Benzin
Benzin, Ja

Gib mir Benzin

Es fließt durch meine Venen
Es schläft in meinen tränen
Es läuft mir aus den Ohren
Herz und Nieren sind Motoren

Benzin

Willst du dich von etwas trennen
Dann musst du es verbrennen
Willst du es nie wieder sehen
Lass es schwimmen in Benzin

Benzin
Benzin
Benzin

Ich brauch Benzin

Benzin
Ja, Benzin
Gib mir Benzin, Ja

    General CommentNo puedo creer que esto esté sucediendo, estuve esperando por meses por esta canción. Trata, creo, de una adicción.
    Lo cierto es que desde el disco pasado (REISE, REISE), el nivel de las letras ha bajado, y ésta es el colmo, espero que este nuevo material no sea una decepción. :S

    General CommentI´m sorry my last comment on this song was so terrible, see, I have just seen the video and listened this song and it´s so freakin`awesome, Till´s voice is pure energy, and the music, and the laughter. Met it like ten minutes ago and love it already. How could I doubt of them ???

    General CommentUnofficial Translation ©2005 Jeremy Williams.

    I need time
    Don't need heroin nor alcohol nor nicotine
    I don't need help
    Nor caffeine
    But I do need dynamite and turpentine
    I need oil for gasoline [2]
    Explosive like kerosene
    With lots of octane and free of lead
    A fuel like

    Petrol

    I don't need a friend
    Nor cocaine
    I need neither a doctor nor medicine
    I don't need a woman, just Vaseline
    Some nitroglycerine
    I need money for gasoline
    Explosive like kerosene
    With lots of octane and free of lead
    A fuel like

    Petrol

    Give me petrol

    It flows through my veins
    It sleeps in my tears
    It leaks from my ears
    Heart and kidneys are motors

    Petrol

    If you want to part with something
    then you have to incinerate it
    If you never want to see it again
    let it swim in petrol
    Petrol
    I need petrol
    Petrol
    Give me petrol

    [1] Petrol is the British term for gasoline; gasoline is the American term for Petrol.
    [2] "Gasolin" is not a German word, but simply the English word, made German. However, there was a German chain of gas stations called "Gasolin" that only existed for about 20 years.

    General CommentI really, really wish my German didn't suck as much... I mean, first of all it's one of the three most widely spread languages in the world, and second, I only get, like, a quarter of Rammstein's lyrics... :P
    You forgot about the "schwimmen in Benzin" part, though, which basically means what it sounds like; To swim around in gasoline. :P

    Anyhow... Es ist ein lieb lied, ja. ^^
    I agree fully and cpmpletely with what's been said about oil and how the world is dependant upon it.

    General CommentIt's about the world's addiction and dependence on oil obviously. I'm fairly certain the rampaging and ultimately unsuccessful fire truck and its sluggish unkempt crew are meant to represent an aspect of the US administration.

    General CommentIf you want to part with something
    then you have to incinerate it

    let it swim in petrol

    I think that's where the whole meaning of the song is. "let it swim in petrol" - is just a metaphor for some means which you need to forget or to part with something.
    Till tells bout heroine, friends and so on just to show that "petrol" is not a symbol for them. So maybe it's time what he's talking about.
    Did it sound at least a little logic?
    Or it could be about a pyromaniac...

    General CommentCould be to do with the dependancy on oil and i see where that comes from but i thinks its about a Pyromanic/arsonist...
    'Ich brauche Zeit': time to pour petrol/get matches/run from police etc.
    'Willst du dich von etwas trennen...' that whole verse is him/her explaining their actions to police/friends/relatives...
    make sense to any one...?

    General Commentoh and the 'kein Heroin' and the 'keine Frau' parts are about the buzz he/she gets from starting the fire and that because of that they dont need drugs or sex
