"Engel" as written by Oliver Riedel, Doktor Christian Lorenz, Christoph Doom Schneider, Richard Z. Kruspe, Paul Landers and Till Lindemann....
Wer zu Lebzeit gut auf Erden
Wird nach dem Tod ein Engel werden
Den Blick gen Himmel fragst du dann
Warum man sie nicht sehen kann

Erst wenn die Wolken schlafengehn
Kann man uns am Himmel sehn
Wir haben Angst und sind allein
Gott weiß ich will kein Engel sein

Sie leben hinterm Sonnenschein
Getrennt von uns unendlich weit
Sie müssen sich an Sterne krallen
(Ganz fest)
Damit sie nicht vom Himmel fallen

Erst wenn die Wolken schlafengehn
Kann man uns am Himmel sehn
Wir haben Angst und sind allein
Gott weiß ich will kein Engel sein

Gott weiß ich will kein Engel sein
Gott weiß ich will kein Engel sein

Erst wenn die Wolken schlafengehn
Kann man uns am Himmel sehn
Wir haben Angst und sind allein
Gott weiß ich will kein Engel sein

Gott weiß ich will kein Engel sein
Gott weiß ich will kein Engel sein
Gott weiß ich will kein Engel sein
Gott weiß ich will kein Engel sein

    General CommentDefinitely one of the most underrated Rammstein songs ever. Whenever anybody mentions Rammstein, people will immediately think of Du Hast, which is good in its own right, but Engel is just 100 times better - the guitar, the whistling, the lyrics: one of my all-time favorite Rammstein songs...

    General CommentI love how Rammstein shows the more poetic side of modern music, really gives you hope that not all of us are going to hell. To bad I'm not one of them,but oh well, I don't really want to be an angel anyway.

    General CommentRammstein is just great period...I haven't heard a song yet I haven't liked. And Till Linderman definitely has an amazing growl. ^.~

    General CommentThough this was apparently enspired by the Terentino film "From Dusk till Dawn", I think the similarity ends there. It seems it ended up more so as a negative commentary on the Christian concept of becoming angels in the afterlife after good deeds in this one. The lyrics explain the rest, so...

    General CommentGOTT WEISS ICH WILL KEIN ENGEL SEIN!

    Definatly one of their best tunes, I concur as toit being a kind of dismissal of the idea that we become angels
