"Laichzeit" as written by Oliver Riedel, Doktor Christian Lorenz, Christoph Doom Schneider, Richard Z. Kruspe, Paul Landers and Till Lindemann....
Er liebt die Mutter
Und von der Seite
Den Fisch gibt er ihr selbst
Dieser häutet sich vor leerem Hoden
Die alte Haut fällt auf den Boden

Er liebt die Schwester
Und von hinten
Der Fisch frisst sich zum Mund
Die Kiemen blutig noch vom saugen
An den roten großen Augen

Es ist Laichzeit

Er liebt den Hund
Oh Gott von oben
Der Fisch jetzt mit der Zunge küsst
Speit tote Milch dir ins Gesicht
Ihn anzufassen wagst du nicht

Überall Fischmilch
Es ist Laichzeit

Die Mutter hat das Meer geholt
Laichzeit, Laichzeit
Die Schwestern haben keine Zeit
Laichzeit, Laichzeit
Der Hund steht winkend am Gestade
Laichzeit, Laichzeit
Der Fisch braucht seine Einsamkeit

    General CommentFlake says this song is about uncontrolled nymphmania.

    The fish is a phallic reference.

    The Mother is the older more experienced women.
    The Sister is the young and beautiful women.
    The Dog is the perversion that occurs when the prior is unavailable. Kinda sick. I'm glad Rammstein has chilled out with the kink since Sehnsucht.

    General CommentWell sorry to dissapoint you professor413 but what Sehensucht album we're you listening to???
    'chilled out the kink' eh? what about the following songs...
    Bestrafe Mich
    Du Hast (while not about sex or 'kink' does have the ambiguity of the line 'Willst du bis zum Tod, der scheide' which could mean 'death of the vagina' or 'death the divider' anyway i digress...)
    Bück dich (obviously)
    Speil mit mir (obvious again)
    Küss mich
    and probably a few others.... but i cant be bother to type any more. :)
    On Herzeleid there are only 5 maybe 6 songs that have kinky connotations or could be interpreted in that way, which is just as many as Sehensucht...
    I think i made my point.
    Plus i live the fact that Rammstein dont water down what they want to say... in most cases they make it obvious! :)

    General CommentProbably one of the few songs that incorperate incest and beastiality. Just needs necrophelia and it'll complete the mix. =P

    General Commentso what.. i speak german (althought not well) and Rammstein are my favorite band just because you like to listen to crap music by people who have sex with their sisters doesnt mean we all have to...
    P.S. professor413 i have to say on re-reading what you have said that an apology may be in order... you said 'since Sehnsucht' which i read as with sehensucht..
    i apologise....

    General CommentCamel, that line can also be the German equivalent of our most basic wedding vows, ending in 'til death do us part' (scheide meaning divide, or seperate, rather than vagina)

    But back to these lyrics.
    I agree with professor, the metaphors for the older, younger, and kink makes a lot of sense, especially in the last verse. The Old dies, the Young grows up, and I think the shore is a reference to memory, but I could be wrong on this last one.

    My InterpretationI think this is about when my dog and i go fishing and the fish looks up and sees my dog from above. And I ain't never seen a lonely fish before, they look pretty happy to me.
