Rammstein
A human burns
Rammstein
The smell of flesh in the air
Rammstein
A child dies
Rammstein
The sun shines

Rammstein
A sea of flame
Rammstein
Blood coagulating on the asphalt
Rammstein
Mothers cry
Rammstein
The sun shines

Rammstein
A mass grave
Rammstein
No escape
Rammstein
No birds sing any more
Rammstein
The sun shines

Rammstein

    The base is called 'Ramstein Air Force Base' (RAFB) not 'Rammstein AFB'. Also, I've been there (military brat) it's huge, just like a little America. Ramstein is the name of the village [of Ramstein] surrounding the base. And to the guy who called this song stupid, you ought to piss off and keep your comments to yourself, this song is a dedication to the dozens of people killed in a violent airshow crash back in the mid-80s, don't be so insensitive.

    The song is about an air-crash at the Ramstein Airforce in Germany base that occurred in the late 80's during an air-show. The Italian aerobatics team collided during their performance and two jets crashed into the crowd killing several dozen people. The band was originally called Ramstein but added the extra 'r' to their name later and yes it can be translated as 'battering ram' into english although not easily ;-)

    Yup but he made a LITTLE mistake they didnt add an extra R but an extra 'M' RamMstein, and it doesn't mean batering ram, it is just the name of the place where the aircrash tookplace

    a ramstein is a battering ram made of stone but the song and the band name are references to the air crash.

    ya I heard the wanted a chant so they added the M. Like the Vikings used to chant RAMMSTEIN RAMMSTEIN before they took a castle and pludered it (because of their battering ramm). I heard that somewhere I think it was on the LAB Concert Interview.

Son Şansın - Şarkı Sözleri
Hayalperest
This song seemingly tackles the methods of deception those who manipulate others use to get victims to follow their demands, as well as diverting attention away from important issues. They'll also use it as a means to convince people to hate or kill others by pretending acts of terrorism were committed by the enemy when the acts themselves were done by the masters of control to promote discrimination and hate. It also reinforces the idea that these manipulative forces operate in various locations, infiltrating everyday life without detection, and propagate any and everywhere. In general, it highlights the danger of hidden agendas, manipulation, and distraction, serving as a critique of those who exploit chaos and confusion to control and gain power, depicting a cautionary tale against falling into their traps. It encourages us to question the narratives presented to us and remain vigilant against manipulation in various parts of society.

Holiday
Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.

Magical
Ed Sheeran
How would you describe the feeling of being in love? For Ed Sheeran, the word is “Magical.” in HIS three-minute album opener, he makes an attempt to capture the beauty and delicacy of true love with words. He describes the magic of it all over a bright Pop song produced by Aaron Dessner.

Amazing
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran tells a story of unsuccessfully trying to feel “Amazing.” This track is about the being weighed down by emotional stress despite valiant attempts to find some positivity in the situation. This track was written by Ed Sheeran from the perspective of his friend. From the track, we see this person fall deeper into the negative thoughts and slide further down the path of mental torment with every lyric.
