"Feuer und Wasser" as written by Richard Z. Kruspe, Paul Landers, Till Lindemann, Doktor Christian Lorenz, Oliver Riedel and Christoph Doom Schneider....
Wenn sie Brust schwimmt ist das schön
Dann kann ich in ihr Zentrum sehn
Nicht dass die Brust das Schöne wär
Ich schwimm ihr einfach hinterher
Funkenstaub fließt aus der Mitte
Ein Feuerwerk springt aus dem Schritt

Feuer und Wasser kommt nicht zusammen
Kann man nicht binden sind nicht verwandt
In Funken versunken steh ich in Flammen
Und bin im Wasser verbrannt
Im Wasser verbrannt

Wenn sie nackt schwimmt ist das schön
Dann will ich sie von hinten sehn
Nicht dass die Brüste reizvoll wären
Die Beine öffnen sich wie Scheren
Dann leuchtet heiß aus dem Versteck
Die Flamme aus dem Schenkeleck

Sie schwimmt vorbei bemerkt mich nicht
Ich bin ihr Schatten sie steht im Licht
Da ist keine Hoffnung und keine Zuversicht denn

Feuer und Wasser kommt nicht zusammen
Kann man nicht binden sind nicht verwandt
In Funken versunken steh ich in Flammen
Und bin im Wasser verbrannt
Im Wasser verbrannt

So kocht das Blut in meinen Lenden
Ich halt sie fest mit nassen Händen
Glatt wie ein Fisch und kalt wie Eis
Sie wird sich nicht an mich verschwenden
Ich weiß

Feuer und Wasser kommt nie zusammen
Kann man nicht binden sind nicht verwandt
In Funken versunken steh ich in Flammen
Und bin im Wasser verbrannt
Im Wasser verbrannt

Feuer und Wasser kommt nie zusammen
Kann man nicht binden sind nicht verwandt
In Funken versunken steh ich in Flammen
Und bin im Wasser verbrannt
Im Wasser verbrannt

    General CommentSounds a bit like he is lusting after a woman that he cannot get. She is water - calm, beautiful, at peace. And he is fire... she is swimming in his imagination but is out of his reach. She doesn't know he exists, and when he goes to touch her and make contact, he is burned. She doesn't want him, yet he is totally in love with her.

    My InterpretationThis song immediately seemed to me to be about a submarine stalking a ship and then opening fire and destroying it. I'm going from the translation as to the meaning; I get the feeling of the calm, serene, beauty of the submarine following its victim and then, "a firework from the crotch", is the torpedo etc. being fired.

    TLDR: Interplay between submarine and target told via the metaphor of a beautiful woman swimming.

    My OpinionThis is clearly about rapist and his victim

    General CommentAn UNOFFICIAL direct translation is below:

    It's beautiful when she swims the breaststroke
    Then I can see into her core
    Not that the breast is what's beautiful
    I just swim after her
    Sparking dust flows from the center
    A firework shoots from her crotch

    Fire and water don't come together
    Can't be bound, aren't related
    Sunken in sparks, I am aflame
    And am burned in the water
    Burned in the water

    It's beautiful when she swims naked
    Then I want to see her from behind
    Not that the breasts are attractive
    Her legs open like scissors
    Then from its hiding place, the flame
    Glows hotly from her thigh-angle

    She swims past and doesn't notice me
    I am her shadow, she stands in the light
    There is no hope and no confidence

    Fire and water don't come together
    Can't be bound, aren't related
    Sunken in sparks, I am aflame
    And am burned in the water
    Like this, the blood boils in my loins
    I grab her with wet hands
    Smooth as a fish and cold as ice
    She won't waste herself on me
    I know

    Fire and water never come together
    Can't be bound, aren't related
    Sunken in sparks, I am aflame
    And am burned in the water

    General CommentI don´t know if this song is really about two different worlds, cause i´ve noticed that even when Rammstein songs seem simple, there is really a deeper story.

    General CommentI agree with sunshine_arakhan, although I don't know whether it's that he is in love with her or whether he's just more infatuated with her physical beauty...

    Also, is it just me or does the third stanza sound vaguely like a rape-scene, where he basically describes that he tries to force himself onto her ("I grab her with my wet hands/Smooth as a fish and cold as ice")?

    General Comment'She swims past and doesn't notice me
    I am her shadow, she stands in the light'
    Sounds kind of like a stalker to me, but I agree with Frau that Rammstein's songs are deeper than they seem.
    I think that the man in the song has fallen in love with the woman but has convinced himself that he isn't good enough for her, leaving himself to watch her, dreaming and wishing that he could be with her.
