"Heirate Mich" as written by Oliver Riedel, Doktor Christian Lorenz, Christoph Doom Schneider, Richard Z. Kruspe, Paul Landers and Till Lindemann....
You see him creeping around the church
He has been alone for a year
The sadness took away all of his senses
He sleeps every night by her grave

There, by the bells sleeps a stone
And I alone can read it
And on the fence, the red rooster
Who was your heart at that time

The fear has been skewered on this fence
I now go digging every night
To see what still remains
Of the face that smiled for me

There by the bells I spend the night
There between snails, a lonely animal
During the day I run after the night
You escape me for the second time

Marry me

with my hands I dig deep
To find what I missed so much
And under the moon in its most beautiful dress
I have kissed your cold mouth

I take you tenderly by the arm
But your skin rips like paper
And parts fall off of you
You escape me for the second time

Marry me

So I take what still remains
The night is hot and we are naked
According to the curse the rooster greets the morning
So I hacked off his head

    General CommentJager you racist prat. the whole song is a metaphore with NO necrophiliac meaning despite that the literal lyrics state that. it has NO bearing on colour or race...

    General CommentHAHAHAHAHAHA! Yeah, I'm not quite sure about the part with the black person, but the rest is true. It's a pretty weird song since the male character in it seems like a necrophiliac. The guitar solo is pretty awesome as well.

    General CommentEven if it not what the intended meaning of this song was, I like to think of this song as about someone who lost someone they loved whether through a relationship break-up or even death. He is so in love that he can not love anybody else, and is constantly thinking about his lost love.

    General CommentThis is a good translation of the song:

    People see him creeping around the church
    he has been alone for a year
    The sadness took away all his senses
    he sleeps every night by her grave

    There, by the bells sleeps a stone
    and I alone can read it
    and on the fence, the red rooster
    who was your heart at that time

    The fear skewered on this fence
    I now go digging every night
    to see what's left
    of the face that smiled for me

    There by the bells I spend the night
    there between snails, a lonely animal
    during the day I run after the night
    you escape me for the second time

    Marry me

    With my hands I dig deep
    to find what I missed so much
    and as the moon was in its most beautiful dress
    I kissed your cold mouth

    I take you tenderly by the arm
    but your skin rips like paper
    and parts are falling off of you
    you escape me for the second time

    Marry me

    So I take what's left
    the night is hot and we are naked
    cursedly the rooster greets the morning
    I hacked off his head

    This song doesnt really mean much to me but the live version of this song is really good , ich leibe Rammstein! (i love Rammstein! , to all of you non German speaking folks)
