"Bestrafe Mich" as written by Richard Z. Kruspe, Paul Landers, Till Lindemann, Doktor Christian Lorenz, Oliver Riedel and Christoph Doom Schneider....
Bestrafe mich, bestrafe mich
Stroh wird gold und gold wird stein
Deine Größe macht mich klein
Do darfst mein bestrafer sein

Der Herrgott nimmt
Der Herrgott gibt

Bestrafe mich, bestrafe mich
Do meinst ja und ich denk nein
Schließ mich ein in dein Gebet
Bevor der wind noch kälter weht

Deine Größe macht mich klein
Do darfst mein bestrafer sein
Do darfst mein bestrafer sein

Deine Größe macht mich klein
Do darfst mein bestrafer sein
Do darfst mein bestrafer sein

do darfst mein bestrafer sein
Do darfst mein bestrafer sein
Deine Größe macht ihn klein
Do wirst meine strafe sein

Der Herrgott nimmt
Der Herrgott gibt
Doch gibt er nur dem
Den er auch liebt

Bestrafe mich, bestrafe mich
Bestrafe mich, bestrafe mich
Bestrafe mich, bestrafe mich
Bestrafe mich, bestrafe mich

    General CommentCant stop playing the song .. the bass lines are great its just perfect .. Rammstein always has a unique sound to all their songs .. none of them resemble the same trend as other bands do ... Fauer Frei is heavy Mutter mild Bestrafe Mich right at the middle .. its amazing that they can assume both sides of metal like that

    General Comment"bestrafe mich" is "punish me". it's about S&M. dominas and stuff. "youre greatness makes me small"/"youre allowed to punish me"/"the Lord (~Herrgott) takes, the Lord gives". lyrics are hard to analyze though.

    General Commenthm, i could be wrong, it could be about religions in which people have to devote their lives to a god and do suffer.

    General CommentDer Herrgott nimmt, der Herrgott giiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii-iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii-iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiibt = the reason why Till Lindeman has become my hero.

    To me this song is just about sado-masochism. However, given the fact that Rammstein loves to delibarately give multiple possibilities to interpret their songs, rooquie's theory might just be right as well.

    General CommentThis is just anothe kickass song from Rammstein that is a little bit kinky and few people actually talk about, since they have those like Hallelujah and that one about loving the dead...literally.
