Am I pretty
Then cut me in the face
Am I stronger
Break my neck in disgrace
Am I smarter
Kill me and eat my brain
I take your wife
Kill me and eat me all up
Just eat me all up

Am I honest
Then bite my tongue right off
Am I richer
Then take it all
Am I braver
Kill me and eat my heart
I take your wife
Kill me and eat me all up
Just eat me all up
And lick the table clean

We're cooking jealousy

Have I such tender skin
Tear it out in stripes
Have i the clearest eyes
Steal all the light
Have I the purest soul
Burn it in the flames
I take your wife then
Kill me and eat me all up
Just eat me all up
And lick the table clean

We're cooking jealousy

    General CommentThe thing with Rammstein is that they are almost never literal with their lyrics so to me it seems like a man is envious of another for everything that he has. He may even have his loved one. He basicly tries to say, "What does he have that I dont?" Not literally of course, he strips the man of everything he is envious of in an attempt to make himself seem better, possibly to the one he loves.
