"Mein Teil (English)" as written by Oliver Riedel, Doktor Christian Lorenz, Christoph Doom Schneider, Richard Z. Kruspe, Paul Landers and Till Lindemann....
Looking for a well-built eighteen to thirty-year-old to be slaughtered
The Master Butcher

Today I will meet a gentleman
He likes me so much he could eat me up
Soft parts and even hard ones
are on the menu

Because you are
what you eat
and you know
what it is

It is my part � no
My part � no
Because that's my part � no
My part � no

The dull blade � good and proper
I'm bleeding heavily and feeling sick
Although I have to fight to stay awake
I keep eating while in convulsions

It's just so well seasoned
and so nicely flamb�ed
and so lovingly served on porcelain
And with it, a good wine and gentle candlelight
Yeah, I'll take my time
You've got to have some culture

Because you are
what you eat
and you know
what it is

It is my part � no
My part � no
Because that's my part � no
Yes it's my part � no

A cry will ascend to heaven
It will cut through hosts of angels
Feather-flesh will shriekingly fall
from the top of the clouds onto my childhood

It is my part � no
My part � no
Because that's my part � no
My part � no

    General Commentthis song is about a case of cannibalism that recently occured in germany. somebody put an ad on the internet in which he was looking for somebody to eat and he found somebody. they met and the cannibal killed and ate he other one. the lawsuit took quite a long time since the victim actually was perfectly ok with the fact that he got killed and the judges were unsure whether to convict him because of murder or not. in the end i think he was convicted and got a life term. in an interview with rammstein i heard one of the guys say that he actually thought it was better to eat someone you know and who agrees to be eaten than to kill and eat an animal that has never been asked if it wanted to be killed.

    General CommentI read about this song somewhere... Think it was Kerrang!... Based on the German internet cannibal Armin Miewed, who got life (I think) for Canabilising Bernd-Juergen Brandes. According to guitarist Richard Kruspe- Bernstein, its a love song :-S. Very demented and disturbing, What Rammstein do best...
