"Rammstein" as written by Richard Z. Kruspe, Paul Landers, Till Lindemann, Doktor Christian Lorenz, Oliver Riedel and Christoph Doom Schneider....
Rammstein
Ein Mensch brennt
Rammstein
Fleischgeruch liegt in der Luft
Rammstein
Ein Kind stirbt
Rammstein
Die Sonne scheint

Rammstein
Ein Flammenmeer
Rammstein
Blut gerinnt auf dem Asphalt
Rammstein
Mütter schreien
Rammstein
Die Sonne scheint

Rammstein
Ein Massengrab
Rammstein
Kein Entrinnen
Rammstein
Kein Vogel singt mehr
Rammstein
Die Sonne scheint

    General CommentRough translation:
    Rammstein, a person burns
    Rammstein, The smell of meat lies in the air,
    Rammstein, a child dies,
    Rammstein, the sun -shines-?

    R.. A flaming sea
    R.. Blood spills on the asphalt
    R.. Mothers scream
    R.. The sun ?

    R.. (something about a grave)
    R.. No entry
    R.. No bird sings anymore
    R.. The sun..

    Morbid. I could have written a better song about my Grandma. Rammstein are still very good though. Just not here. This is crap.

    General CommentDark Out: Rammstein isn't trying to be "Morbid" here, they're describing an accident at Rammstein airbase in Germany.
    anyway, you're right. it is "the Sun shines"
    the thing about the grave: the word is Massengrab. that means "mass grave"
    as in a lot of dead people piled in an open pit. when the Nazis described (in their official documents) their methods of disposing of Jewish bodies during the Holocaust, they used the term Massengrab often. i think it might be a refrence to that. anyway, it means mass grave.

    General CommentI think this song has a double meaning and the band ment it to be that way. the interpretation of the song is its about the Ram Stein airbase accident which the band is named after and the second is about The Holocaust and the gas chamber and crematories and execution of children and their mother and.... you get the picture.

    General CommentI agree with madbull, massengrab does mean mass grave and the nazis would would take a truck loud of jew out to the forest have them dig a huge hole(grave Then line them up in front of it make the put out their throat, slit it and move to the next peron, with baies they were thrown in the air and the machine gunners would use the as targets.

    General Commentmassengrab is (as you stated) the direct translation of "massgrave". it is not by any means a reference to the nazi regime, but one to the high bodycount of the rammstein accident (70+ or so). nazis had to use massgraves to bury their deads, but they didn't invent them or the term...
    rammstein doesn't have any references to the nazis in their lyrics. (although they indeed play with their behavior and style)

    General CommentThis is a better translation of the song:

    Rammstein *
    A man is burning
    Rammstein
    The smell of flesh lies in the air
    Rammstein
    A child is dying
    Rammstein
    The sun is shining

    Rammstein
    A sea of flames
    Rammstein
    Blood is coagulating on the asphalt
    Rammstein
    Mothers are screaming
    Rammstein
    The sun is shining

    Rammstein
    A mass grave
    Rammstein
    No escape
    Rammstein
    No birds are singing anymore
    Rammstein
    The sun is shining

    * Here the word "Rammstein" is written, but the song is actually about the flightshow disaster that happened at the Ramstein Airbase.

    General CommentSongs like this really don't sound well when directly translated. I'd imagine it flows quite well to one who actually speaks the language, but honestly, the translation posted here is crap.

    General CommentI like the German lyrics.
    The translation somehow can't describe the mood and atmosphere of the song really well....
