Wild wine - before your castle
Wild wine - I am ready
Only the king's arrival is announced
God help me and open your gates
Wild wine - and really slow
Wild wine - so warm and damp

Wild wine - before your womb
Wild wine - it is written
Deep waters shouldn't be crossed
but my lust laughs at the wings
Wild wine - like a grape
Wild wine - so wet and hot

Wild wine - before this darkness
Wild wine - healed by the light
It stays hidden, otherwise we could defend
I wait for you - at the end of the night
Wild wine - like a grape
Wild wine - bitter like snow

I wait for you - at the end of the night(4x)

    General CommentAgain with those Rammstein double lyrics. If you think hard enough about the lyrics, the suggestion is that the vines growing in front of the castrle gates is really a metaphor for pubic hair and female genitalia, awaiting the arrival of the 'king' in the darkness. Think about it 'bitter like snow', 'warm and damp', 'open your gates' - how much more suggestive can it get ?? all nicely dressed up and disguised like so much of Rammstein's material (works in german as well ;-)

    General CommentI think its about death.. and the wild vine beeing a metaphor for blood, and loosing blood.
    "It stays hidden, otherwise we could defend" death could come at any time, so when it does: "Only the king's arrival is announced
    God help me and open your gates" and certanly the waiting for you at the end of the night bit.. waiting for death. But yeah, I understand the sex interpertation.

    General CommentWhat the song is actually about is he caught his woman cheating on him so in a fit of rage and jealousy he throw her in he's attic where there is nothing but an old piano. She plays the piano untel, the end of the song when it stops, she is dead.
    A case of if I can't have you noone can.
    The meaning gets a bet lost in translation but listen to the music with the German words and it makes more sense.
