"Emigrate" as written by and Richard Z. Kruspe....
Eagle flies across a flag
Bureaucracy is such a drag
Behold a pale horse tonight
The men in black are out of sight

She comes
He comes
We come
She comes

Across the oceans in my mind
Across the skies I left behind
A land of opportunity
A land to fill my destiny

Emigrate [x4]

I've been alone a long, long time
So what, I take what should be mine
I've searched the sea of empty eyes
And severed all my familiy ties
A mercenary feeds my soul
A plastic world, no getting old
A monkey wears the age-old crown
The other monkeys getting down

She comes
He comes
We come
She comes
Welcome

Emigrate [x4]

Walk through fear
Leave you, dear
Never wanted to create a tear
Walk through fear
If you dare

Emigrate [x5]

    General Commenti can tell it's about america, but what the philosophical point is that it's trying to make i'm not sure...

    but it doesn't seem blatantly negative. could even be positive and simply saying that there is some kind of hope that the people of america will bring to the rest of the world

    My InterpretationSounds to me like he's sharing his feelings when he decided to travel from Rammstein and Germany to America to start Emigrate.

    Emigrate: leave one's country
    Bureaucracy: immigration process?
    Men in black: Rammstein?

    Having this song as the first song of the first album also leads me to this thought.

    RZK also mentioned how he liked touring with Rammstein but not the creative process. That was his reason to start a band where he had the final say.
